Crohn’s disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease, where the gastrointestinal tract becomes inflamed, which results in symptoms such as diarrhoea, stomach aches and fatigue. We were delighted to speak with Reinier van Linschoten (Franciscus Gasthuis & Vlietland; and Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, the Netherlands) around the health burden of Crohn’s disease, the disadvantages of current adalimumab dosing regimens in the maintenance of remission and the hot topics and latest research in Crohn’s disease.
