Brief Answer: Dear XXXX i have previiously answered as well. Detailed Answer: Treatment of Crohn's disease is directed at reducing inflammation - treating flares in the activity of the disease, and maintaining remissions. Drugs recommended are - aminosalicylates, antibiotics, corticosteroids, immunosuppressants, cyclosporins. surgery often becomes necessary with strictures, intestinal obstruction, or symptoms that do not respond to any medical treatment. Two general immunosuppressors are tacrolimus (Prograf, FK 506) and mycophenolate mofetil (CellCept). about fatal complications i have answered to you in your previous query. regards!
