These guidelines are established for clinical practice with the intent of suggesting preferable approaches to particular medical problems as established by interpretation and collation of scientifically valid research, derived from extensive review of published literature.
This guideline is intended to be flexible, not necessarily indicating the only acceptable approach, and should be distinguished from standards of care that are inflexible and rarely violated. The Committee reviews guidelines in depth, with participation from experienced clinicians and others in related fields.
The final recommendations are based on the data available at the time of the production of the document and may be updated with pertinent scientific developments at a later time. At the same time, the number of therapeutic options is rapidly increasing.
The remainder of the search included key words related to the subject area that included clinical features, natural history, diagnosis, biomarkers, treatment, and therapy. For each of the therapeutic sections, key words included the individual drug Medimmune and an effective management plan.
The results used for analysis were limited to primary clinical trials, meta-analyses, systematic reviews, and prior guidelines. Where there were limited data, abstracts were used.
In many areas reviewed, there were not available clinical trial data, and these areas are discussed as summary statements rather than GRADE statements. We preferentially used meta-analyses or systematic reviews when available, followed by clinical trials and retrospective cohort studies.
Summary statements are descriptive and do not have associated evidence-based ratings Table 2.
In this guideline, the numbered statements are the GRADE statements and the unnumbered statements relate to summary statements. Summary and strength of recommendations Diagnosis Routine laboratory investigation Fecal calprotectin is a helpful test that should be considered to help differentiate the presence of IBD from irritable bowel syndrome IBS strong recommendation, moderate level of evidence.
Endoscopy In patients at particularly high risk for colorectal neoplasia e.
For patients undergoing surveillance colonoscopy there is insufficient evidence to recommend universal chromoendoscopy for IBD colorectal neoplasia surveillance if the endoscopist has access to high-definition white light endoscopy conditional recommendation, moderate level of evidence.
Endoscopists who are sufficiently trained and comfortable performing chromoendoscopy may be able to forgo obtaining random surveillance biopsies and rely on targeted biopsies alone conditional recommendation, very low level of evidence.
Cigarette smoking exacerbates disease activity and accelerates disease recurrence and should be avoided. Active smoking cessation programs should be encouraged strong recommendation, low level of evidence.
For patients with low risk of progression, treatment of active symptoms with anti-diarrheals, other non-specific medications, and dietary manipulation, along with careful observation for inadequate symptom relief, worsening inflammation, or disease progression, is acceptable strong recommendation, very low level of evidence.
Conventional corticosteroids do not consistently achieve mucosal healing and should be used sparingly weak recommendation, low level of evidence. Azathioprine at doses of 1.
Combination therapy of infliximab with immunomodulators thiopurines is more effective than treatment with either immunomodulators alone or infliximab alone in patients who are naive to those agents strong recommendation, high level of evidence.
Testing for anti-JC virus antibody should be repeated every 6 months and treatment stopped if the result is positive. Antibiotics imidazoles may be effective and should be considered in treating simple perianal fistulas strong recommendation, moderate level of evidence.
The addition of antibiotics to infliximab is more effective than infliximab alone and should be considered in treating perianal fistulas strong recommendation, moderate level of evidence.

MedImmune’s PBD technology was invented and developed by Spirogen, a company acquired by MedImmune in About MedImmune: MedImmune is the global biologics research and development arm of AstraZeneca, a global, innovation-driven biopharmaceutical business that focuses on the discovery, development and commercialization of small molecule.
Placement of setons increases the efficacy of infliximab and should be considered in treating perianal fistulas strong recommendation, moderate level of evidence. Patients who are steroid dependent should be started on thiopurines or methotrexate with or without anti-TNF therapy strong recommendation, moderate level of evidence.
Anti-TNF therapy, specifically infliximab, adalimumab, and certolizumab pegol, should be used to maintain remission of anti-TNF-induced remission strong recommendation, high level of evidence.
Thiopurines may be used to prevent clinical and endoscopic recurrence and are more effective than mesalamine or placebo. However, they are not effective at preventing severe endoscopic recurrence strong recommendation, moderate level of evidence. When to refer to surgery An intra-abdominal abscess should be treated with antibiotics and a drainage procedure, either radiographically or surgically conditional recommendation, low level of evidence.
There are no truly pathognomonic features. Endoscopic, radiographic, and histologic criteria with evidence of chronic intestinal inflammation will be present. Patients with ileal, ileocolonic, or proximal GI involvement are significantly more likely than those with isolated colonic disease to progress to an intestinal complication.
Extensive anatomic involvement and deep ulcerations are other risk factors for progression to intestinal complications. Therefore, the majority of patients will require active effort to identify therapies that achieve adequate control of bowel inflammation. Visceral adiposity may be a marker for increased risk of penetrating disease Objective evaluation by endoscopic or cross-sectional imaging should be undertaken periodically to avoid errors of under- or over treatment.
Causes of excess mortality include gastrointestinal disease, gastrointestinal cancer, lung disease, and lung cancer. Intestinal Malignancy Patients with colonic involvement are at increased risk of colorectal cancer, and risk factors include duration of disease, extent of colonic involvement, primary sclerosing cholangitis, family history of colorectal cancer, and severity of ongoing colonic inflammation.
Patients with small bowel involvement are at increased risk of small bowel adenocarcinoma that can be difficult to diagnose preoperatively.
Diagnosis Routine laboratory investigation Initial laboratory investigation should include evaluation for inflammation, anemia, dehydration, and malnutrition.
Disease distribution and severity should be documented at the time of diagnosis.
Biopsies of uninvolved mucosa are recommended to identify extent of histologic disease.Quality Management (QM) Program — established by the Plan and relevant regulatory and accrediting agencies and (2) delegates maintain continuous, appropriate, and effective quality-improvement programs. • Adopting, adapting, and updating practice guidelines for medical and behavioral.
