This is reassuring; wish there were more details.
"The new biologics can suppress these diseases for long periods of time without massive doses of steroids or disabling surgeries," says Dr. Sandborn. "As genes associated with IBD are discovered, more engineered therapies are likely to be developed. Approximately 50 biotechnology companies are currently developing new treatments for IBD. Ten years from now, we can look forward to having a greater range of effective therapies that will return a better quality of life to more of our patients."
