Asian Organization for Crohn's and Colitis and Asia Pacific Association of Gastroenterology consensus on tuberculosis infection in patients with inflammatory bowel disease receiving anti-tumor necrosis factor treatment
This issue chosen by the Editor of Intestinal Research is Asian consensus on tuberculosis infection in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) receiving anti-tumor necrosis factor (anti-TNF) therapy.

Because anti-TNF therapy has become increasingly popular in many Asian countries, the risk of developing active tuberculosis (TB) among anti-TNF users may raise serious health problems in this region. Twenty-three consensus statements were discussed by 211 IBD specialists from 9 Asian countries.

Part 1 comprised "risk of TB infection during anti-TNF therapy" and "screening for TB infection before anti-TNF therapy". Part 2 comprised "management of latent TB before anti-TNF therapy", "monitoring during anti-TNF therapy", and "management of an active TB infection after anti-TNF therapy".

Read about these consensus statements to reduce the morbidity and mortality related to TB infections in patients with IBD receiving anti-TNF treatment.

In addition to this article, read other articles about TB infections in patients with IBD.
