A new subcutaneous formulation of the infliximab biosimilar CT-P13 has recently been developed for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), providing response rates similar to intravenous treatment. In an effort to limit patient attendance at intravenous infusion centers and to maintain biological treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of this new formulation was requested. The objective of this observational, retrospective, and descriptive study was to assess CT-P13 efficacy and safety after switching from intravenous to subcutaneous formulation in patients with IBD receiving maintenance therapy. This article shows preliminary results after six months of follow-up.
