The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is moving from the Crohn's Disease Activity Index to patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and objective measures of disease, such as findings from endoscopy. PROs will become an important aspect of assessing activity of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and for labeling specific drugs for this disease. PROs always have been considered in the management of patients with rheumatoid arthritis or multiple sclerosis, and have included measurements of quality of life, disability, or fatigue. Several disease-specific scales have been developed to assess these PROs and commonly are used in clinical trials. Outcomes reported by patients in clinical trials of IBD initially focused on quality of life, measured by the Short-Form 36 questionnaire or disease-specific scales such as the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire or its shorter version. Recently considered factors include fatigue, depression and anxiety, and work productivity, as measured by the Functional Assessment Chronic Illness Therapy-Fatigue, the Hospital Anxiety Depression, and the Work Productivity Activity Impairment Questionnaire, respectively. However, few data are available on how treatment affects these factors in patients with IBD. Although disability generally is recognized in patients with IBD, it is not measured. The international IBD disability index currently is being validated. None of the PROs currently used in IBD were developed according to FDA guidance for PRO development. PROs will be a major primary end point of future trials. FDA guidance is needed to develop additional PROs for IBD that can be incorporated into trials, to better compare patients' experience with different therapies.

Abstract Background and aims Busy clinical settings often restrict the possibility to focus on concepts that determine health in a positive way, commonly assessed by using patient-reported outcomes (PROs). We aimed to explore which determinants of health (DHs) are important to people with Crohn's disease (CD), to understand possible gender differences and to analyze whether these DHs are covered by PROs used in CD. Methods Two systematic literature reviews were done to identify relevant DHs and ...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Impairment of sleep quality is common in patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) (eg, Crohn’s disease [CD] and ulcerative colitis [UC]), even during clinical remission. Sleep impairment can activate inflammatory pathways. Few prospective studies have examined the role of sleep disturbance on risk of relapse in IBD. METHODS: We analyzed data from 3173 patients with IBD (1798 in clinical remission at baseline) participating in the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Ameri...

Inflammatory bowel disease is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the gastrointestinal tract that significantly impacts the health-related quality of life (HR-QOL). A decreased HR-QOL has been demonstrated in patients with active disease compared with patients in remission. In this cross-sectional study, we examined the role of depression and disease activity as independent factors in predicting patient's HR-QOL.Hundred and five patients with either Crohn's disease (CD) or ulcerative colitis (UC)...

Patients with myelofibrosis (MF) have significant debilitating symptoms, physical disabilities, and poor health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Here, we report post-hoc analyses of the impact of ruxolitinib, a potent and selective JAK1 and JAK2 inhibitor, on disease-related symptoms and HRQoL in MF patients from the large phase 3 COMFORT-II study (N = 219). During the follow-up period of 48 weeks, HRQoL and MF-associated symptoms improved from baseline for ruxolitinib-treated patients but remai...

Trial design and endpoints for the evaluation of drug efficacy in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) underwent major changes over the last two decades. A systematic review in the early 1990s concluded that there were few well-designed and well-executed treatment trials in IBS. Over the next decade, the so-called binary endpoints were used in several clinical trials in IBS in the US, Europe and other parts of the world. In 2006, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published a general guidance for ...

Biologics have mainly been assessed in patients with severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA) globally. Less attention has been paid to moderately active disease, especially in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). Access to biologics and the disease features of RA patients may differ in CEE, relative to other regions. We assessed the clinical and patient-reported outcomes (PROs) of treatment from CEE patients in the multinational PRESERVE study (NCT00565409). Patients with moderate RA 28-joint disease acti...

Abstract Pro-inflammatory cytokines such as tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) have repeatedly been shown to play a pivotal role in the pathophysiology of depression. Therefore, we tested the possible antidepressant-like effect of the anti-TNF-α drug etanercept in an animal model of chronic mild stress. Male Wistar rats were assigned to a non-restrained and a restrained protocol for 5 weeks. From beginning of the third week the animals were treated either with Ringer solution daily or with eta...

Crohn’s disease (CD) is a chronic disorder characterized by full thickness patchy inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. The pathogenesis is multifactorial and involves defective innate immune responses, microbiome alterations, and dysregulated activation of the acquired component of mucosal immunity. One of the molecular mediators that is involved at different levels in the initiation and progression of intestinal inflammation characteristic of CD is tumor necrosis factor (TNF). The presen...

25 years ago the field was revolutionized by the introduction of infliximab as the first hybrid anti-TNF-antibody. Subsequently, other humanized anti-TNFs were developed and marketed, followed by antibodies to new targets including integrins (vedolizumab) and interleukin (IL) 12/23 (ustekinumab). All these so-called biologicals were shown in registrational trials to induce remission superior to placebo but consistently were effective in only a minority of patients. Even though in most trials onl...
