Evolving Treatment Options for Patients with Ulcerative Colitis (UC)

This symposium was sponsored by Bristol Myers Squibb

Presented by:

Conventional therapies remain the most common first-line treatments for moderate to severe ulcerative colitis (UC) in the EU, including aminosalicylates (5-ASAs), corticosteroids, and immunosuppresants.1 However, clinical remission is not always achieved with conventional therapies in certain patient populations.2 According to one retrospective study of patient-reported outcomes of 256 patients, more than half of patients did not achieve control of clinical measures, such as rectal bleeding or normal stool frequency, with the use of conventional therapies.2
