Entyvio is used to treat the signs and symptoms in adults of:1
- moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis

How Does Your Medication Work?
Vedolizumab blocks a protein on the surface of white blood cells that get into the gut and cause inflammation in ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. By doing this, the amount of inflammation is reduced.1
