During this symposium, at the 10th Congress of ECCO, Barcelona, two interesting case studies were discussed. Advancements in improving existing treatment options can make a big difference for patients:

New treatment targets – treating beyond remission to endoscopic healing
New data on new treatment options for the management of mild-to-moderate active ulcerative colitis
