Abstract: The primary goals of treating patients with Crohn's disease are to induce a clinical remission, maintain the remission, and prevent associated complications. Various treatment regimens for patients with Crohn's disease induce a response and remission; however, most prove ineffective for maintenance of the clinical effect. A therapeutic agent that can induce and maintain remission, while promoting the restoration of intestinal mucosa, would prove to be most beneficial in such a patient population.
