Core Tip This multicentre retrospective study demonstrated a significant association between both infliximab and adalimumab trough levels with fistula healing, with higher levels associated with increased healing rates. Higher tertiles of both infliximab and adalimumab levels were associated with a higher proportion of patients achieving fistula healing. Fistula healing, defined as cessation of fistula drainage, is a clinically relevant endpoint that impacts on patient quality of life. Our results support dose-escalation of both infliximab and adalimumab in non-responders, targeting higher levels to achieve fistula healing prior to changing biologic therapy. Importantly, this study is the largest study to date assessing the relationship between adalimumab trough levels and clinical fistula healing.
