The first-line treatment strategy of moderate to severe UC was a important question at issue. The biological agents had potentiality to alter the disease course of UC. The AGA clinical guidelines had conditional recommend that IFX and other biological agene migtht be first-line therapy for high-risk UC patints but only had low grade evidence.We launched this multicenter prospective cohort trial to compare the efficacy and safety of infliximab (IFX) and corticosteroids(CS) when they was used as first-line therapy in UC patients.
Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

|Moderate to Severe Ulcerative Colitis|
: UC cohort
the patiente of Moderate to Severe Ulcerative Colitis who recieved infliximab(IFX) or corticosteroids(CS) as induction therapy would be enrolled in this cohort
Drug: - Infliximab

Drug: - Corticosteroid
Corticosteroids was used as induction therapy in UC patients, the maintenance treatment was decided by the researcher
