Whoooooops! I missed out on that entirely. The IBD gastros have an annual forum in Florida in early December that may generate some new info online. Dr. Daniel Present usually debates another top IBD gastro there on a current hot topic-- wow, would that ever be interesting if it's not too biochemical for laymen! They get up early to participate in a lot of these conferences, too, on weekends. Gads. My intestines hate to be up & about early and so does the rest of me! / Old Hat ( nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])
