Current evidence supporting mucosal healing and deep remission as important treatment goals for inflammatory bowel disease

Abstract : Mucosal healing (MH) is now considered as a major treatment goal in clinical trials and clinical practice for patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). MH is associated with sustained clinical remission, steroid-free remission, and reduced rates of hospitalization and surgery. There is a well-known disconnect between clinical symptoms and mucosal lesions that is more pronounced in CD. More stringent therapeutic goals have been discussed recently such as deep remission defined as clinical remission associated with MH. Recent international guidelines from the IOIBD recommended deep remission as a treatment goal in clinical practice. However there is no validated definition of deep remission in IBD. Also, the efficacy of available drugs to induce and maintain deep remission in IBD is poorly known. Finally, whether deep remission is the best way to modify the course of IBD and whether it should be achieved before considering drug de-escalation have to be formally evaluated in upcoming disease-modification trials.
