abstract

  • Despite the fact that anti-TNF alpha antibodies are well-tolerated and highly effective in Crohn's disease 25% to 40% of patients who initially benefited from treatment are developing intolerable adverse events or are loosing their response during maintenance therapy.

The aim of this paper is to review the clinical strategies to face anti-TNF alpha antibodies in Crohn' disease.
