I've noticed that these "New advances in UC/CD" events from different CD/UC organizations are all sponsored by the pharmecutical companies that make the drugs.
I mean, I know you have to be discserning about all the info they espouse and take what applies to you, but how accurate or helpful is the research and info session if its really a plug for the drug?
What do you think?

Thank G-d - Prednisone then 6MP, Rowasa and Asacol brought remission
Now Asacol 4tabs 2x a day.
Reduced to 2tabs 2x a day. Soon had a very mild flare. Upped to 6 tabs 2x a day. Rowasa enemas nightly. Soon replacing that with Cortifoam (generic). Dr. says it's like shooting a mouse with an elephant gun....
