Core Tip We carried out a questionnaire survey with gastroenterologists combined with desk research to analyze access to biologicals for Crohn’s disease in ten European countries. Regarding availability, reimbursement criteria were the least restrictive in Sweden and Germany, and the most restrictive in Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. Between countries, the annual cost of biological treatments differed 1.6-3.3-fold. Treatments were the most affordable in Sweden and the least affordable in Hungary and Romania. The number of patients on biologicals per 100000 population was strongly correlated with gross domestic product, although substantial differences were found in the uptake among countries with similar economic development.
