Entyvio (vedolizumab) blocks a protein on the surface of white blood cells that get into the gut and cause inflammation in ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. By doing this, the amount of inflammation is reduced.1
Entyvio is used to treat the signs and symptoms in adults of:1
Ulcerative Colitis (UC) – Adult patients with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis who have had an inadequate response with, lost response to, or were intolerant to either conventional therapy or a tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNFα) antagonist.
Crohn’s Disease (CD) – Adult patients with moderately to severely active Crohn’s disease who have had an inadequate response with, lost response to, or were intolerant to either conventional therapy or a tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNFα) antagonist.LEARN MORE
