Continuation of Immunomodulators in IBD Patients Starting Anti-TNFs Evaluated in Meta-Analysis

http://www.gastroendonews.com/ViewAr...059&a_id=27435

The benefit of keeping patients with Crohn’s disease on an immunomodulator after starting an anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF) agent appears to differ based on the specific anti-TNF agent used....Outcomes were improved when immunomodulator therapy was continued in patients initiating infliximab but not in those initiating adalimumab or certolizumab.
