There are multiple well-established therapies available to treat Crohn’s disease (CD). In particular, the mostly widely used biologics, the TNF-α inhibitors (e.g., Janssen/Merck’s Remicade, AbbVie/Eisai’s Humira), helped to advance CD treatment, especially for moderate to severe patients. Over the past two years, the CD treatment landscape has witnessed the approval of two novel biologics (i.e., Takeda’s Entyvio and Janssen’s Stelara) and the launch of biosimilar infliximab (e.g., Celltrion’s Remsima). Entyvio, the first and only cell adhesion molecule (CAM) inhibitor in the EU5, offers an alternative treatment for TNF-α refractory patients; the recent approval of Stelara for CD, the first-in-class IL-12/23 inhibitor, also further expands physicians’ treatment armamentarium. Indeed, the availability of these agents has influenced physicians’ prescribing behavior, and will continue to impact the treatment landscape.
