David Hudesman MD, FACGAssociate Professor
New York, United States
As the therapeutic armamentarium for IBD grows, it becomes increasing important to gain an understanding on the positioning of various advance therapies (biologics and small molecules) used in a way that can maximize drug efficacy and patient outcome.
Bearing in mind that a previous therapy may have an influence on the maximal efficacy of subsequent drug, this means not only looking at comparative efficacy and safety but also the sequencing of each medicine when choosing first line biologic or small molecule.
In this presentation, we will look at the some of the evidence in the literature that can help guide us in choosing the right therapy for the right patient at the right time and sequence to maximize patient outcome.
