Low Frequency of Opportunistic Infections in Patients Receiving Vedolizumab in Clinical Trials and Post-Marketing Setting.

Low Frequency of Opportunistic Infections in Patients Receiving Vedolizumab in Clinical Trials and Post-Marketing Setting. Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2018 Oct 12;24(11):2431-2441 Authors: Ng SC, Hilmi IN, Blake A, Bhayat F, Adsul S, Khan QR, Wu DC Abstract Background: Vedolizumab (ENTYVIO) is a humanized α4β7 integrin antagonist approved for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, which selectively blocks gut-specific lymphocyte trafficking. We evaluated the risk of opportunistic infections of interest in patients treated with vedolizumab. Methods: We determined the frequency of opportunistic infections and tuberculosis in patients receiving vedolizumab in phase…

Colon Surgery Risk With Corticosteroids Versus Immunomodulators or Biologics in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Patients With Clostridium difficile Infection.

Colon Surgery Risk With Corticosteroids Versus Immunomodulators or Biologics in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Patients With Clostridium difficile Infection. Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2018 Sep 26;: Authors: Solanky D, Pardi DS, Loftus EV, Khanna S Abstract Background: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is an independent risk factor for Clostridium difficile infection (CDI), and CDI often precipitates IBD exacerbation. Because CDI cannot be distinguished clinically from an IBD exacerbation, management is difficult. We aimed to assess factors associated with adverse outcomes in IBD with CDI, including the role of escalating or de-escalating IBD therapy…

Anti-Tumor Necrosis Factor Therapy for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases Do Not Impact Serious Infections After Arthroplasty.

Anti-Tumor Necrosis Factor Therapy for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases Do Not Impact Serious Infections After Arthroplasty. J Crohns Colitis. 2018 Sep 26;: Authors: Gregory MH, McKinnon A, Stwalley D, Hippensteel KJ, Loftus EV, Ciorba MA, Olsen MA, Deepak P Abstract Background and Aims: There is a paucity of data on the safety of joint replacement surgery in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including those on tumor necrosis factor-alpha inhibitors (anti-TNF). We explored the risk of serious infections in this population. Methods: A retrospective case-control study (2006-2014) was performed using the…
