The agenda for this LIVE webinar includes a 40-minute presentation on "Safety of IBD Treatment: How to Manage Complications While on Treatment?" and a 20-minute Q&A session with Professor Rupert Leong.
As the therapeutic armamentarium for IBD grows, it is increasingly important to gain an understanding of the safety profiles of IBD medications. Although the clinical efficacy in IBD has been clearly established, it remains uncertain to what extent biologic and small molecule therapies might be associated with an increase in the rate of infections and malignancies among others.
In this presentation, we will discuss some of the safety analysis on advance therapies and how we can manage these safety issues that emerge for IBD patients who are on treatment.
