The TRIUMPH study was designed to build on the existing literature by studying the efficacy of tofacitinib in a subset of ulcerative colitis patients. We are looking to determine if there is benefit from tofacitinib in the severe hospitalized population.
To determine the effectiveness (combined and endoscopic response) and safety of tofacitinib in patients with acute severe UC who experience treatment failure to steroids or anti-TNFα/anti-integrin therapies/anti-interleukin therapies. The primary outcome of this study is to assess clinical response at day 7 among patients who receive tofacitinib.
