The BIOCYCLE project has now been ongoing for almost 2.5 years. This project, funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme, aims at exploring different aspects of the question of treatment de-escalation in moderate-severe Crohn’s Disease, first requiring a combination therapy with anti-TNF and antimetabolites to control the disease. Once the disease has been stabilised, an unsolved question is to whether it is possible to de-escalate therapy. This question is important for several reasons including safety, tolerance, quality of life or costs to name the most prominent.

BIOCYCLE includes a randomised three-arm, controlled clinical trial on 300 patients in five European countries, several patient and health care provider surveys in Europe and the United States, a biomarker research programme and pharmaco-economic analysis. ECCO is mainly involved in the monitoring of the project (through SciCom and ClinCom) and is the work package leader for dissemination of the results. BIOCYCLE is a 6-year-long project and was launched in April 2015.
