PIIIb VARSITY trial found vedolizumab superior to adalimumab in achieving clinical remission in patients with moderate to severe active ulcerative colitis at week 52. Of those treated with vedolizumab IV, 31.3% (n=120/383) achieved clinical remission (primary endpoint ) compared to 22.5% (n=87/386) of those treated with adalimumab subcutaneous (SC), (p=0.0061) .
