Poster summary

A systematic search was conducted in electronic databases for observational studies evaluating ustekinumab for UC. Of 254 citations, 19 studies were included with 3786 patients. Clinical remission was achieved in 45.4% of patients at week 8, 43.8% at weeks 12 to 16, 44.6% at month 6, and 50.6% at month 12. Corticosteroid-free remission was achieved in 18.7%, 36.8%, 34.5%, and 39% of patients at week 8, weeks 12 to 16, month 6, and month 12, respectively. Endoscopic improvement was achieved in 29.9%, 24.3%, and 58.2% of patients at weeks 12 to 16, month 6, and month 12, respectively. The IRs of colectomy, AE, serious AE, and serious infections were 4.8, 7.9, 0.8 and 0.3 per 100 PY, respectively. The results of this meta-analysis of observational studies confirm the effectiveness of ustekinumab in UC. The acceptable safety data support the positive long-term benefit-risk profile of ustekinumab for UC.
