But What Is Crohn’s Disease?

If you’re on this site, chances are you know Crohn’s disease symptoms all too well and may have been suffering for years.

Crohn’s disease is a relapsing inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that mainly affects the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. It can result in abdominal pain, fever, bowel obstruction, diarrhea, and even the passage of blood in stool. The exact cause of Crohn’s disease is unknown. Potential drivers of Crohn’s disease have been linked to a combination of several factors, including your immune system, genetics, and the environment.

STELARA® Can Help

If you still have Crohn’s disease symptoms and your current treatment isn’t helping, STELARA® can help.

STELARA® is a prescription medication for adults with moderately to severely active Crohn’s disease. Only STELARA® starts with a one-time intravenous (IV) infusion to help reduce symptoms of Crohn’s disease, followed by subcutaneous maintenance injections to help keep the disease under control.

STELARA® is not right for everyone. Only your doctor can decide if STELARA® is right for you.
