Use of co-induction with corticosteroid therapies may accelerate the remission rate when used with vedolizumab. Further, this may lead to higher rates of response and remission at week 10 than would be seen with vedolizumab monotherapy.

Study summary:

This study will examine prednisone co-induction with vedolizumab in patients with Crohn's disease. To address questions regarding the effect of co-induction on mucosal healing, the study will include colonoscopic assessment of mucosal healing. Finally, colonic biopsies in this study will allow to elucidate further the mechanism of action of vedolizumab in Crohn's disease through immune phenotyping studies.
