PosterPerspectives: IBD Posters and Abstracts from Washington, DC

The following abstracts and posters were curated from all the posters presented at a recent gastroenterology congress held in Washington, DC. The central themes of these posters are drug safety, preventing disease recurrence, and switching among treatments. Specifically, the posters we selected highlight the incidence of serious infections and the efficacy associated with biologic agents and other immunomodulating therapies among patients with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
