Details and patient eligibility


Vedolizumab is a medicine that helps to reduce symptoms of IBD and the associated inflammation in the digestive system for participants with ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease. In this study, participants with ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease will be treated with vedolizumab according to their clinic's standard practice. Participants will receive vedolizumab as either an infusion or an injection just under the skin (subcutaneous). The main aim of the study is to observe real-world treatment patterns in participants treated with vedolizumab. The study sponsor will not be involved in how participants are treated but will provide instructions on how the clinics will record what happens during the study.
