Entyvio (vedolizumab) is used in adults for the treatment of moderate to severe Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s Disease.
Entyio works by preventing an excess of white blood cells from entering the GI tract. This helps to control inflammation and symptoms of ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.
Entyvio is administered intravenously over a period of about 30 minutes. An observation time may be required after the infusion. Entyvio is usually given every 8 weeks. Infusions may be given more frequently at the start of therapy, known as the induction period.
Number of yearly treatments: 6
