Brian Feagan and colleagues1 report in The Lancet the short-term (12 weeks) efficacy and safety of risankizumab, a humanised monoclonal antibody targeting the p19 subunit of interleukin 23, in patients with moderate-to-severe Crohn’s disease (Crohn’s disease activity index [CDAI] score 220–450) and document endoscopically active mucosal lesions.
