To investigate the mechanism and effects of moxibustion on patients with ulcerative colitis.
National, prospective, multicentre observational study designed for eligible patients treated with Inflectra. Its objectives are to describe under real conditions of use, the profile of patients treated with Inflectra and the response to treatment.
Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory disease primarily involving the colon and has long been considered to be due to a dysregulated immune response targeting the colon, and involves unknown environmental factors. Currently, no effective therapy targets the microbiota or its interaction with the colonic epithelium. Diet has a significant impact on the composition of the microbiota; however, no dietary intervention to date has proven effective for induction of remission. The primary objective of this study is to determine whether the Ulcerative Colitis Diet (UCD) can induce remission or response in pediatric UC patients with active mild to moderate UC on a stable medication.
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of high-dose corticosteroid pulses added to conventional oral corticosteroid course for moderate flares of ulcerative colitis.
Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a chronic inflammatory condition causing continuous mucosal inflammation of the colon, which is accompanied by episodes of bloody diarrhoea and abdominal pain. Both infliximab and adalimumab have been used with success for moderate-to-severe UC refractory to conventional therapy. More recently, golimumab, another anti-TNF antibody, has been added to the treatment armamentarium. In the multi-centre, double-blind, placebo-controlled PURSUIT trial, patients with moderate-to-severe UC randomized to induction therapy with golimumab (200-100 mg, or 100-50 mg at week 0 and 2) achieved clinical response, clinical remission and mucosal healing more frequent than patients randomized to placebo. In the PURSUIT maintenance trial, patients randomized to golimumab every four weeks (100 or 50 mg) maintained clinical response through week 54 significantly more often than patients randomized to placebo. Data on the use of golimumab in daily clinical practice are unavailable. The aim of the retrospective Belgian multi-centre BE-SMART trial is to evaluate the mid-term outcome of golimumab in patients with moderate-to-severe colitis. The primary endpoint will be steroid-free golimumab continuation at week 26. Secondary endpoints will include (steroid-free) clinical remission, (steroid-free) clinical response, (steroid-free) mucosal healing, (steroid-free) complete mucosal healing hospitalization-free survival, and colectomy-free survival.
The primary objective of this study is to observe the long-term safety of filgotinib in adults who have completed or met protocol specified efficacy discontinuation criteria in a prior Gilead-sponsored filgotinib treatment study in ulcerative colitis (UC).
The primary objectives of this study are to evaluate the safety and efficacy of filgotinib in the induction and maintenance treatment of moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC) in participants who are biologic-naive and biologic-experienced. Participants who complete the study, or do not meet protocol response or remission criteria at Week 10 will have the option to enter a separate, long-term extension (LTE) study (Gilead Study GS-US-418-3899).
The purpose of this study is to assess the bioavailability and pharmacokinetics (PK) of multiple doses of vedolizumab subcutaneous (SC) compared to vedolizumab intravenous (IV).
This retrospective multi-centric Belgian prospective trial will involve 10 patients initiating or under maintenance subcutaneous golimumab therapy for moderate-to-severe colitis at the University Hospitals Leuven (Leuven, Belgium) or AZ Groeninge (Kortrijk, Belgium) Patients will (have) receive(d) standard induction therapy with golimumab 200mg at week 0, and golimumab 100mg at week 2. Maintenance therapy will (have) start(ed) at week 6, with 50 or 100mg of golimumab every 4 weeks, depending on body weight (50mg every 4 weeks for patients with a body weight of less than 80kg, and 100mg for the others) Patients will come to the hospital for clinical evaluation, blood sampling and golimumab administration following daily clinical practice. The patients will be requested to perform several dry blood spot analyses at home.
The main objectives of this study are to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of daily doses of PTG-100 in subjects with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis (UC).
