PP2-06 Efficacy and safety of granulocyte and monocyte adsorptive apheresis in elderly vs. non-elderly patients with ulcerative colitis
We retrospectively investigated the efficacy and safety of Granulocyte and Monocyte Adsorptive Apheresis (GMA) therapy between 15 elderly patients vs. 19 non-elderly patients with ulcerative colitis. While the remission rates and response rates in non-elderly patients were 33.3% and 94.4%, these rates were 40.0% and 93.3% in elderly patients. There were no significant differences in the 1-year relapse-free rates between elderly and non-elderly patients (71.4% and 50.0%, respectively, P=0.453). These results suggest that GMA therapy is an efficient and safe treatment in elderly patients with ulcerative colitis.
