As a leading CRO company in antibody manufacture, Creative Biolabs has extensive experience in the development of therapeutic antibodies and cell-based therapy for autoimmune diseases such as ulcerative colitis (UC). With unique and outstanding integrated platforms, we can give you the most professional advice from target selection to the pre-clinical candidate.
UC is a chronic idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) of the colon that continuously causes a superficial mucosal inflammation extending from the rectum to the more proximal colon, to varying extents. The hallmark symptoms of UC include bloody diarrhea with rectal urgency and tenesmus.

A subcutaneously administered fully human anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF) antibody has been approved by both Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for UC refractory to both steroids and azathioprine. In a study, anti-TNF-naive patients with moderate-to-severe UC unresponsive to conventional treatment were randomly assigned to receive either a placebo or the antibody regimen given 2 weeks apart. At week 6, the antibody regimen induced significantly more clinical response, clinical remission and mucosal healing, and improved quality of life. At week 54, patients treated with antibody achieved significantly more continuous responses, remission, and mucosal healing rates compared with those who received placebo.
