Digestive experts grade treatment options for inflammatory bowel disease
Date:4/7/2011

Bethesda, MD (April 7, 2011) The American College of Gastroenterology published a new evidence-based systematic review on the management of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) as a supplement to The American Journal of Gastroenterology (AJG) for April 2011, a special issue entirely dedicated to IBD.

Therapeutic approaches to inducing and maintaining remission, as well as preventing relapse, were included in the analysis. The evidence for the following therapies was included in the systematic review: 5-ASAs, corticosteroids, antibiotics, biologics and immunosuppressants.

"A series of systematic reviews performed by methodologists and supported by IBD experts provides an authoritative perspective on the efficacy of medical therapies in IBD," explained Paul Moayyedi, B.Sc., M.B. Ch.B., Ph.D., MPH, FRCP, FRCPC, FACG, who, along with colleagues at McMaster University and University of Leeds conducted the comprehensive meta-analysis. Dr. Moayyedi also serves as Co-Editor of AJG. "The assessment of all the trials in both UC and CD using the same criteria by one group of researchers gives a unique overview o
