Consider HUMIRA® for Your Child’s Crohn’s Disease

HUMIRA is a prescription medicine used to treat moderate to severe Crohn’s disease (CD) in children 6 years of age or older.

The goal of pediatric CD treatment is to achieve and maintain remission.

HUMIRA can be administered by you, or your child, at home.

Your child’s first dose of HUMIRA must be given under the supervision of a health care professional.

HUMIRA can reduce the damaging inflammation of the digestive tract that is associated with moderate to severe pediatric CD.

  • One factor involved in pediatric CD is the overproduction of an inflammation-causing protein called "tumor necrosis factor alpha" (TNF alpha) that occurs naturally in the body.
  • HUMIRA, a biologic, specifically binds to TNF alpha and blocks its interaction with other cells. This helps reduce the systemic inflammation that can lead to the symptoms of pediatric CD, and can help your child achieve and maintain remission—few or no symptoms.

Ask your child’s doctor about the benefits and risks of HUMIRA.

It’s important that both you and your child speak with your child’s gastroenterologist about the benefits and risks of taking a biologic medication. It may also be important that your child understands what is happening inside his or her body and the decisions that have been made about his or her treatment plan. Prescription medications, including HUMIRA, have possible risks involved with treatment, so it’s important to discuss these risks with a doctor. HUMIRA is not right for everyone.

Because HUMIRA blocks the action of TNF, it can lower the ability of your child’s immune system to fight infections. Your child should not start taking HUMIRA if he or she has any kind of infection unless your child’s doctor says it’s okay. People treated with HUMIRA have an increased chance of developing serious infections that may lead to hospitalization or death, and may increase the chance of getting lymphoma (including a rare kind), skin or other cancers. You should discuss the potential benefits and risks of HUMIRA with your child’s doctor.
