  Purpose

A multi-centre retrospective review of fistulizing Crohn's disease (CD) patient charts will capture data to measure health care resource utilization associated with the use of Infliximab for treatment of CD. Three health science centres/hospitals from Ontario are targeted to participate in the study, each site is expected to provide 30-40 patient charts with a target of 108 charts total.

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Infliximab
Because of the difficulty of finding subjects with exactly the same disease severity, information will be recorded for the time period for up to three years before and for one year after their initial infliximab infusion for comparison of health care costs and utilization prior to infliximab and post infliximab use.
Biological: Infliximab
None available in the protocol. This was a chart review study, therefore no Infliximab provided during the study.
