Jae-Young Chun MDAssistant Professor
The agenda for this LIVE webinar includes a 45-minute presentation on "Best Practice in Managing IBD with Extraintestinal Manifestation" and a 15-minute Q&A session with Dr. Jae-Young Chun.
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a systemic disease associated with a large number of extraintestinal manifestations (EIM). The management of EIM is best provided by a multidisciplinary team, which includes specialists in the affected organ systems with training in the treatment of IBD. However, therapeutic strategy is often empirical due to paucity of randomized-controlled studies for the specific treatment of EIM in IBD and by the fact that treatment models are based on extrapolation from patients with similar conditions but without IBD. For most EIM, the mainstay of therapy is the treatment of the underlying active IBD. Yet, some EIM such as axial arthritis, pyoderma gangrenosum, uveitis and primary sclerosing cholangitis run a clinical course independent of IBD activity and need specific therapy.
In this presentation, we present an updated review on the role of conventional and novel treatment for the management of extraintestinal symptoms in IBD.
Dr. Jae-young Chun is an assistant professor of Medicine and Gangnam Severance Hospital. He completed his medical training, post-graduate residency and fellowship training at Seoul National University College of Medicine.
