Advanced Therapies for Ulcerative Colitis: A Critical Look at Comparative Data

Join us for this interactive symposium that explores the comparable efficacy and risks of specific biologic therapies for treating moderate to severe UC that include TNF inhibitors and non–TNF inhibitor biologics and use these comparisons to make optimal treatment decisions for your patients

Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to improve the competence of participants in weighing benefits vs risks of advanced UC therapies and to use these comparisons to make optimal treatment decisions for patients with moderate to severe UC.

Target Audience
This live program is intended for gastroenterologists and other clinicians who are attending the Crohn’s & Colitis Congress and other healthcare providers who care for patients with UC.

Learning Objectives

  • Summarize emerging data from recent clinical trials that compared efficacy and safety of drugs from different biologic classes for the treatment of UC
  • Describe real-world data for biologics therapies and how this information can provide insights on the use of specific agents in heterogeneous UC populations
