Abstract

This chapter will review the use of biologic therapies other than infliximab, namely adalimumab, certolizumab pegol (CDP871), CDP571, golimumab, etanercept, onercept, anti-adhesion molecules (natalizumab, vedolizumab, AJM 300, alicaforsen ISIS 2302, anti-interleukin 12/23, briakinumab, ustekinumab, apilimod mesylate), anti-interleukin-2 receptor antibodies (daclizumab, basiliximab) and other miscellaneous biotechnology agents (sargramostim, filgrastim, interleukin 10, fontolizumab, visilizumab, RDP58, abatacept, antagonist to chemokine receptor 9, golimumab) for the treatment of Crohn disease and ulcerative colitis, with an emphasis on use in pediatric patients. Included in the review will be information on the mechanisms of action for the various agents, efficacy, and toxicity. When appropriate, data from clinical trials of these agents in children with dermatologic and rheumatologic disease will be included in order to give the reader the maximum information currently available on the use of these agents in children.
