"Information was collected on the potential use of naltrexone to improve clinical Crohn’s disease activity. Based upon the validated PCDAI scoring system, subjects treated with naltrexone for 8 weeks had significant decreases in the activity scores from baseline suggesting improvement in the Crohn’s disease. At the completion of the study, twenty–five percent achieved a clinical remission and sixty-seven percent had a significant response to therapy which is higher than what would be expected for a spontaneous response. In our prior adult clinical trials 19, we found that naltrexone improved clinical activity scores in over 85% of adults. The current pilot trial suggests that children may also respond to naltrexone." - Jill P. Smith, M.D., Douglas Field, M.D., [...], and David Mauger, Ph.D.
