A prospective study evaluated the performance of abdominal ultrasound compared to entero-MRI before initiating biotherapy. In 21 patients, there was a very high correlation between ultrasound and endoscopy and between ultrasound and MRI enterography regarding the location of the most affected segment. A case report from a case series described the efficacy of tofacitinib in a patient with severe acute colitis hospitalised after failure of two anti-TNF agents, ciclosporin treatment and vedolizumab. This treatment has the particularity of being fast acting and thus could be useful in patients with severe acute colitis. The 6-month colectomy-free survival of 55 patients was 73.6%. A shared medical and nursing project for the Hepato-Gastro-Enterology branch of the Eure-et-Loir GHT has been set up for the management of chronic inflammatory bowel diseases, based on the creation of a position for a coordination nurse for IBD. The intervention of the nurse was considered useful or very useful by 87% of patients.
