The TREAT Registry is an updated submission of the 5-year follow-up of Crohn's disease patients from community and academic centers in North America treated with or without infliximab. Over 6,000 patients were followed for risks of mortality and serious infections. Similar to data presented after nearly 2 years of follow-up, mortality was similar for infliximab-and other-treatment-only patients. Infliximab, corticosteroids and narcotics were associated with increased risks of serious infections. Data presented is similar from data reported for controlled trials and observational series in patients with inflammatory bowel disease and rheumatoid arthritis.
