Trick or TREAT? More Safety Data of Infliximab During Pregnancy.

Abstract
Infliximab was the first FDA approved biologic for the treatment of Crohn’s disease. Data for its use before and during pregnancy in both females and males have been increasing over the last decade, but most studies have had fewer than 100 patients and inconsistent comparison to healthy control outcomes. New data from the TREAT Safety Registry have a robust N of female and male patients exposed to infliximab with known birth outcomes from both academic and community settings. There does not appear to be any increase in adverse pregnancy outcomes from this population.
