Abstract

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) are treated with anti-TNF agents. Strategies to monitor response to therapy may improve clinical control of the disease and reduce economical costs. Previous evidence suggests cleavage of infliximab (IFX) by Matrix Metalloproteinase 3 (MMP3) as a mechanism leading to loss of response. Our study aimed to evaluate if MMP3 serum levels could be considered an early marker of anti-TNF nonresponse and to analyze the correlation with other biochemical markers of treatment failure such as IFX trough levels and anti-IFX antibodies, inflammatory markers, and albumin levels.
