The article presents information on abstracts related to inflammatory bowel disease. An abstrct focuses on infliximab for the treatment of pyoderma gangrenosum. Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a chronic ulcerating skin condition that often occurs in association with inflammatory bowel disease. There have been a number of reports of PG responding to infliximab, a monoclonal antibody against tumour necrosis factor alpha. In the first randomized placebo controlled trial of any drug for the treatment of PG, researchers have studied of role of infliximab in this disorder.
