Patients with Crohn's Disease

Detailed Description:

Subjects are to be treated in accordance with the most current local product label. Patients will be seen at the site at study enrollment and then at routine office visits through completion of the study (up to 5 years). Subjects will be followed according to normal clinical practice. Adverse events of interest (including reports of opportunistic infections, such as tuberculosis [TB], other serious infections, occurrence of intestinal stricture, new malignancies, lupus/lupus-like illness, demyelinating disorders, congestive heart failure), and serious adverse events (SAE) will be recorded throughout the study. In addition, adverse events of interest will be reported at any time after the last dose if the Investigator believes the event to be related to adalimumab treatment.

Information to evaluate the effectiveness of adalimumab therapy will be collected through administration of patient-reported outcome measurements (PROs) and Physician assessments of disease activity if assessed as part of clinical practice at the study enrollment visit and at subsequent routine visits. The following PROs will be used: Short Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (SIBDQ), Health Care Resource Utilization and Work Productivity and Activity Impairment. The Physician assessment of disease activity will be collected using the Physician Global Assessments Form. Information about medications taken for CD will be collected.
