BACKGROUND Tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNFα)-antagonism effectively treats ulcerative colitis (UC). The golimumab clinical programme evaluated subcutaneous (SC) and intravenous (IV) induction, and SC maintenance regimens, in TNFα-antagonist-naïve patients with moderate-to-severe active UC despite conventional treatment. AIM To evaluate dose-response… (More)
BACKGROUND To assess infliximab pharmacokinetics in pediatric ulcerative colitis (UC). METHODS This phase 3, randomized, open-label multicenter study enrolled 60 children (6-17 yr) with moderate-to-severely active UC (Mayo score, 6-12; endoscopic subscore, ≥2), despite conventional therapy. Patients received infliximab 5-mg/kg induction infusions at weeks… (More)
A hitherto unrecognised problem of pericardial tamponade complicating spinal surgery in a child with Duchenne muscular dystrophy is reported in this paper.
OBJECTIVES The safety and efficacy of subcutaneous golimumab through 2 years of maintenance therapy was evaluated in patients with moderate-to-severe ulcerative colitis (UC). METHODS Patients completing treatment through week 52 (placebo, golimumab 50, 100, every-4-weeks (q4w)) and evaluations at week 54 were eligible for this long-term extension (LTE)… (More)
