BACKGROUND Gut-selective blockade of lymphocyte trafficking by vedolizumab may constitute effective treatment for ulcerative colitis. METHODS We conducted two integrated randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials of vedolizumab in patients with active disease. In the trial of induction therapy, 374 patients (cohort 1) received vedolizumab (at a dose of 300 mg) or placebo intravenously at weeks 0 and 2, and 521 patients (cohort 2) received open-label vedolizumab at weeks 0 and 2, with…

Vedolizumab as induction and maintenance therapy for Crohn's disease.
TLDR
Vedolizumab-treated patients with active Crohn's disease were more likely than patients receiving placebo to have a remission, but not a CDAI-100 response, at week 6; patients with a response to induction therapy who continued to receive vedolIZumab (rather than switching to placebo) were morelikely to be in remission at week 52.

Recently, GEMINI 1 investigators examined the efficacy of vedolizumab for induction and maintenance of remission in active ulcerative colitis (Mayo score of 6-12 and unsuccessful previous treatment
Vedolizumab versus Adalimumab for Moderate-to-Severe Ulcerative Colitis.
TLDR
Vedolizumab was superior to adalimumab with respect to achievement of clinical remission and endoscopic improvement, but not corticosteroid-free clinical remission in adults with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis.
Efficacy and Safety of Vedolizumab Subcutaneous Formulation in a Randomized Trial of Patients With Ulcerative Colitis.
TLDR
Subcutaneous vedolizumab is effective as maintenance therapy in patients with moderately to severely active UC who had a clinical response to intravenous vedolsumab induction therapy and has a favorable safety and tolerability profile.
Effects of vedolizumab induction therapy for patients with Crohn's disease in whom tumor necrosis factor antagonist treatment failed.
TLDR
Vedolizumab was not more effective than placebo in inducing clinical remission at week 6 among patients with CD in whom previous treatment with TNF antagonists had failed, and the therapeutic benefits of vedolIZumab in these patients were detectable at week 10.

Efficacy and safety of a new vedolizumab subcutaneous formulation in Japanese patients with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis
TLDR
The results indicate that the efficacy of vedolizumab SC in a subgroup of Japanese patients with UC are similar with those in the overall VISIBLE 1 study population, and with those established with vedOLizumAB IV.

TLDR
In patients with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis, tofacitinib was more effective as induction and maintenance therapy than placebo and was associated with increased lipid levels.

Vedolizumab as induction and maintenance therapy for Crohn's disease.
TLDR
Vedolizumab-treated patients with active Crohn's disease were more likely than patients receiving placebo to have a remission, but not a CDAI-100 response, at week 6; patients with a response to induction therapy who continued to receive vedolIZumab (rather than switching to placebo) were morelikely to be in remission at week 52.
Natalizumab induction and maintenance therapy for Crohn's disease.
TLDR
Induction therapy with natalizumab for Crohn's disease resulted in small, nonsignificant improvements in response and remission rates, which will need to be weighed against the risk of serious adverse events.
Infliximab for induction and maintenance therapy for ulcerative colitis.
TLDR
Patients with moderate-to-severe active ulcerative colitis treated with infliximab at weeks 0, 2, and 6 and every eight weeks thereafter were more likely to have a clinical response at weeks 8, 30, and 54 than were those receiving placebo.
Treatment of ulcerative colitis with a humanized antibody to the alpha4beta7 integrin.
TLDR
In this short-term study, MLN02 was more effective than placebo for the induction of clinical and endoscopic remission in patients with active ulcerative colitis.
Oral 5-aminosalicylic acid for inducing remission in ulcerative colitis.
TLDR
The newer 5-ASA preparations were superior to placebo and tended towards therapeutic benefit over SASP, however, considering their relative costs, a clinical advantage to using the newer 4-aminosalicylic acid preparations in place of SASP appears unlikely.
Coated oral 5-aminosalicylic acid therapy for mildly to moderately active ulcerative colitis. A randomized study.
TLDR
It is concluded that oral 5-ASA administered in a dosage of 4.8 g per day is effective therapy, at least in the short term, for mildly to moderately active ulcerative colitis.
Risk of natalizumab-associated progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy.
TLDR
Positive status with respect to anti-JC virus antibodies, prior use of immunosuppressants, and increased duration of natalizumab treatment, alone or in combination, were associated with distinct levels of PML risk in natalIZumab-treated patients with multiple sclerosis.
Efficacy of Oral vs. Topical, or Combined Oral and Topical 5-Aminosalicylates, in Ulcerative Colitis: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Combined 5- ASA therapy appeared superior to oral 5-ASAs for induction of remission of mildly to moderately active UC and intermittent topical 5-asAs appeared superior for preventing relapse of quiescent UC.
Fatal PML associated with efalizumab therapy
TLDR
It is proposed that inhibition of peripheral and intrathecal T-cell activation and suppression of CNS effector-phase migration both characterize efalizumab-associated PML and LFA-1 may be a crucial factor in homeostatic JC virus control.
