P154 Clinical assessment of prognosis and the prognostic factors in intestinal Behcet’s disease
Approximately 30% of all cases and 50% of severe cases that had received biologics were not able to avoid surgery. In severe cases, it is important to evaluate early treatment efficacy and prognostic factors because the median time of administration of biologics was only 9 weeks. However, no independent prognostic factor was found in this study.
Updated treatment strategies for intestinal Behçet’s disease
Recently, there has been a line of evidence suggesting that biologics such as infliximab and adalimumab are effective in treating intestinal BD. Moreover, new biologics targeting proteins other than tumor necrosis factor α are emerging and are under active investigation. Therefore, in this paper, we review the current therapeutic strategies and new clinical data for the treatment of intestinal BD.
