Crohn's disease (CD) leads to chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract that significantly impacts patients over an entire lifetime. The decrease in health-related quality of life (HRQoL) may have an impact on patient's level of functioning, work productivity, and other activities. The goal of treatment for CD is clinical remission based on clinical, endoscopic, and biological parameters. There has been introduction of new treatments in recent years.
