Additional comments Er zijn momenteel ruim 80.000 mensen in Nederland met een chronische darmontsteking. Dit is ongeveer 1 op de 200 mensen. Hiervan heeft iets meer dan de helft colitis. Een vergelijkbare biological die gericht is tegen integrines is vedolizumab. In 2017 werd vedolizumab voorgeschreven aan 1.658 patiënten met chronische darmontstekingen, hiervan hebben er ongeveer 800 UC. Uitgaande van 50% marktaandeel wordt geschat dat ustekinumab zal worden voorgeschreven aan 400 patiënten per jaar.
