Abstract

A partial or complete steroid resistance, whose cause is not yet clarified, has been documented in many patients with long-standing Crohn's disease (CD). The primary aim of this study was to evaluate the number and affinity of serum protein steroid-binding sites in steroid-resistant patients with Crohn's disease. A secondary goal was to measure insulin sensitivity, an indirect index of steroid effectiveness, in these patients.
