There are a ton of new meds on the horizon. To correct a few errors in earlier posts, the oral biologics arent just for anti-TNFs (I actually dont know of any anti-TNF oral drugs in development), but there IS an oral anti-alpha4beta7 drug (Entyvio essentially) entering trials now. There are also many new drugs being developed against many novel targets in UC in all kinds of forms (antisense drugs, biologics etc). And the SSI treatments mentioned earlier are moving through the pipeline fast. The drug is in phase II trials for both UC and Crohns. There is BIG money in UC treatment, so the next few years will be very exciting
Correct. The old guard was full of nuclear strikes, its getting more pinpoint now and with a LOT less side effects and collateral damage.
I am ready to invest in Celgene they have two for UC now, they buy them up from smaller companies after trials show success, in fact the later stage they buy them the less risk involved. Celgene is doing good things with Cancer too.
