    Several recent studies conducted in children and young people show that Humira (also known as adalimumab) is effective in the treatment of Crohn disease.

    This drug is given as a subcutaneous injection (under the skin) every 2 weeks. Different countries have different access to this drug. 

    Humira has similar side-effects to Infliximab, but does have much lower rates of reactions following each dose compared to Infliximab. Infliximab and adalimumab work on the same parts of the inflammatory processes.
