Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Interval Between Infliximab Infusions Within the Observation Period (Maintenance Therapy) [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
    Participants received infliximab infusions with or without induction therapy. The induction therapy consisted of three infliximab infusions at Weeks 0, 2 and 6. Maintenance therapy consisted of an additional 6 infusions (maximum) as prescribed by the treating physician (dose and infusion interval).

  • Median Interval Between Infliximab Infusions Within the Observation Period (Maintenance Therapy) [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
    Participants received infliximab infusions with or without induction therapy. The induction therapy consisted of three infliximab infusions at Weeks 0, 2 and 6. Maintenance therapy consisted of an additional 6 infusions (maximum) as prescribed by the treating physician (dose and infusion interval).

  • Average Dose of Infliximab Per Participant Within the Observation Period [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
    Participants received infliximab infusions with or without induction therapy. The induction therapy consisted of three infliximab infusions at Weeks 0, 2 and 6. Maintenance therapy consisted of an additional 6 infusions (maximum) as prescribed by the treating physician (dose and infusion interval).

  • Median Dose of Infliximab Per Participant Within the Observation Period [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
    Participants received infliximab infusions with or without induction therapy. The induction therapy consisted of three infliximab infusions at Weeks 0, 2 and 6. Maintenance therapy consisted of an additional 6 infusions (maximum) as prescribed by the treating physician (dose and infusion interval).

  • Total Dose of Infliximab Per Participant Within the Observation Period [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
    Participants received infliximab infusions with or without induction therapy. The induction therapy consisted of three infliximab infusions at Weeks 0, 2 and 6. Maintenance therapy consisted of an additional 6 infusions (maximum) as prescribed by the treating physician (dose and infusion interval).


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of the Disease Activity Before Treatment and During Therapy With Remicade Via Harvey Bradshaw Index (HBI) in an Extended Patient Group of 200 Patients. [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    HBI consists of only clinical parameters (general well-being, abdominal pain, number of liquid stools per day, abdominal mass, and complications). HBI is a score on a scale; <5 (remission), 5-7 (mild disease), 8-16 (moderate disease), >16 (severe disease).
