Steroid treatment for IBD after SOT was significantly associated with worsening of disease activity (p = 0.028). However, this association may be most likely explained by the fact that IBD patients with worsening of IBD activity after SOT will be primarily treated with steroid treatment rather than steroid treatment being an independent risk factor for worsening of IBD activity after SOT.
