Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Update

Now Available On Demand!
Duration: 1 hour

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is an umbrella term used to describe disorders that involve chronic inflammation of your digestive tract. Different types of IBD include: Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s Disease. The difference between the two conditions is mainly the areas of the Gastrointestinal (GI) tract affected.

IBD is generally found equally in men and women and can occur at any age. However, it is more frequently diagnosed in those between the ages of 15-35 years old. IBD is more common in developed countries, urban areas and northern climates.

Recruitment to Inflammatory Bowel Disease clinical trials is challenging for many reasons and this impacts the speed with which new treatments can get to market. To meet these challenges Synexus have developed IBDconnect – a solution to support the biopharmaceutical industry in getting new treatments to patients, faster. Synexus have built a network of IBD specialists to partner with our own clinical research experts to enhance recruitment and delivery of clinical trials in IBD and offer more patients access to emerging treatments for their disease.

In this webinar our key note speaker Professor Schiefke will discuss the aetiology, prevalence and symptoms of IBD. There will also be updates on current management of these conditions, such as the role of biologic therapies, latest advances in treatment and future vision of care. We will show how Synexus address those challenges in clinical trials with access to patients available outside of the overused PI’s in this condition, provide solutions to identify more patients in active flare and solutions to bring research naïve physicians into this space.
