Treating mild to severe IBD with the right biologic

By Daniel Disusa       Aug 18, 2015

Treating mild to severe IBD with the right biologic

Biologics are recommended when chemically-obtained drugs like corticosteroids fail to help inflammatory bowel disease patients achieve remission. Hence IBD patients have to have comprehensive awareness on the healing process and other impacts of both anti-TNF drugs in general and biologics in particular, in order to streamline the treatment process in the right manner. This is indispensable to speed-up the healing process. Differing from the IBD curing drugs that supress the immune system totally, biologics help target the inflammation causing proteins and related cells eventually preventing them from causing/aggravating IBD-related inflammation in the gut. Thus IBD patients can easily get relief by using biologics drugs like Cimzia, Humira, Remicade, and Tysabri. The reasons why biologics why is recommended might include one more of the following conditions:

  1. Severity of the disease condition

  2. The treatments that were initially adopted and failed

  3. The treatment process adopted

  4. The preference of the patient

Biologics is often recommended within a step by step therapy, and is often limited to conditions of severe and active disease, where standard drugs might not work wonders. There has been a growing trend to use biologic agents during the early stages of the treatment process. However, many experts are vehemently against this shortcut. In other words, use of biologics in the earlier stages of Crohn’s disease treatment will exhaust the treatment methods soon. That said, experts recommend biologics in the initial stages of the treatment process if patients suffer from severe diagnosis. It can also recommended if:

  1. Patients are young and suffer from severe Crohn’s disease

  2. If the diseases area(s) include a major part of the small intestine

  3. Constant use of steroids to control the activities of the digestive tract

  4. Cigarette smoking

  5. Development of abscesses and fistulas


Like any other IBD drug, biologics too have their own pros and cons
