Abstract

In this study, we assessed the blood circulating proinflammatory and inflammatory cytokines and obtained the cut-off level for TNF, IL-22, IL-23, IL-27 between groups of children in exacerbation and remission during treatment with infliximab. There was a significant decrease in serum IFN in children in exacerbation compared with the group of children in remission for both UC and CD. It was found that the younger the age of the child, the faster the antibodies to infliximab were formed. The level of TNFin the blood, the residual level of infl iximab, as well as the level of antibodies to infliximab can serve as predictors of non-response and loss of effect from therapy with TNF blockers.
