Treatment Desired Outcomes

Pharmacologic interventions for IBD are designed to target the underlying inflammatory response. Treatment goals involve both management of active disease and prevention of disease relapse. Major treatment goals include alleviation of signs and symptoms and suppression of inflammation during acute episodes and maintenance of remission thereafter. Addressing active IBD in a timely and appropriate manner may prevent major complications such as perforation and may reduce the need for hospitalization or surgical intervention. Once control of active disease is obtained, treatment regimens are designed to achieve the following long-term goals: (a) maintenance of remission and prevention of disease relapse; (b) improvement in the patient's quality of life; (c) prevention of surgical intervention or hospitalization; (d) management of extraintestinal manifestations; (e) prevention of malnutrition; and (f) prevention of treatment-associated adverse effects.
