Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD) encompasses a group of gastrointestinal chronic conditions including Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease. This group of diseases can have a very negative and severe effect on a patient’s quality of life. IBD can lead to severe physical complications requiring surgery and/or hospitalization. When selecting drug therapies for patients with IBD, there are multiple things to consider.
