Primary Outcome(s)
Main Objective: To study changes in the inflammatory and the fibrous component of ileal segments in patients with ileal Crohn’s disease treated with infliximab at wk 0,2,6 and q8 wks thereafter.

Primary endpoint:
Number of patients achieving a clinically significant change in MRI enteroclysis score of severity in Ileal Crohn’s Disease (MICD); defined as an improvement of at least 2 points and at least 50% on the inflammatory subscores. i.e. 4 to 2 or 5 to 2 or 8 to 4 (subscores defined in section 21), as measured with contrast enhanced MRI enteroclysis (procedures defined in the MRI study manual) at week 26 compared to baseline.
Primary end point(s): Changes in bowel wall thickness and inflammation on contrast enhanced MRI enteroclysis at 2 weeks and 6 months compared to baseline.

Secondary Objective: To study:
-Clinical efficacy of infliximab in patients with ileal inflammatory stenosis based on CDAI remission and CDAI response (drop of 100 points or more).
-Quality of life
-predictors of response (CRP, Gd enhancement on MRI, duration of disease, con meds)
-2 year resection rates
