Because of their state of ongoing physical and psychosocial growth, children and adolescents are quite vulnerable to side effects of the medications used to control CD, particularly corticosteroids. Our strategy is thus to minimize corticosteroid exposure by using more aggressive maintenance therapies earlier in the course of disease. Nutritional therapy with enteral formulas is an alternative method to induce remission and avoid the use of corticosteroids, but our patients are relatively resistant to this strategy because of the need to use a nasogastric (NG) tube in most cases. The rapid development of novel new therapies brings hope that alternatives to corticosteroids will soon be available as first line therapies for CD.
