Applying S1P Therapeutics to Improve Outcomes for Patients with Moderate to Severe Ulcerative Colitis
CME Symposium in Conjunction with Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) 2021
Sunday, May 23rd, 2021
8:00 am – 9:30 am Eastern Time
Virtual, Live Streamed Program
This interactive CME program will highlight sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) therapeutics to improve outcomes for patients with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis. The expert faculty, led by Dr. William J. Sandborn, will review S1P receptor modulators as a therapeutic target to support the management of ulcerative colitis. The faculty will then analyze clinical trial data for the safety and efficacy of novel S1P therapeutics to treat patients with ulcerative colitis. Additionally, a review of best practices for developing treatment strategies for patients with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis will be discussed. The faculty will conclude with an interactive panel discussion, delving into sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor modulator science as a therapeutic target to improve outcomes in patients with ulcerative colitis.
