Crohn’s disease (CD) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the gastrointestinal tract characterized by diarrhea, abdominal pain, and weight loss. The primary goal of CD treatment is to induce and maintain remission. Treatment of CD typically begins with safe, albeit often less-efficacious, conventional agents (e.g., 5-ASAs) but often progresses to more-potent drugs, such as immunosuppressants and/or biologics. However, this scenario is changing, and more physicians are prescribing biologics for recently diagnosed CD. Among the biologics, TNF-alpha inhibitors (e.g., Janssen/Merck’s Remicade, AbbVie/Eisai’s Humira) are the mainstays of treatment, but newer therapies, including Takeda’s Entyvio and Janssen’s Stelara, have a growing market share.
