Entyvio Tops Humira in a Head-to-Head Comparison Trial

Location
San Diego
Entyvio was shown to be superior to Humira in inducing remission in an direct comparison trial in UC patients. This is the first head-to-head comparison of any of the biologics for IBD. All prior comparisons have been indirect - utilizing separate patient populations. I hope a lot more of these studies are done.

Any studies on humira vs entyvio for crohns sonce what works for one (UC) doesn’t work as well for the other ??
Not yet. But hopefully the Crohn's studies are coming.

And I know that what goes for UC doesn't always apply to CD and vice versa, but often they do. There is significant overlap in the treatment of these two diseases.
