As we have dealt rather effectively with infectious diseases, we find ourselves bearing an increasing burden of chronic inflammatory disorders. In this meeting, we will discuss: what the relationship is between immune function and IBD, how drugs used to treat IBD affect the immune system, and whether there is a different way to treat this disease to better help support immune function. Lots to think about – so come brimming with questions! Please register below.
