This CME activity is derived from content presented at the Digestive Disease Week (DDW) 2021 Virtual Meeting. The expert faculty will highlight sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) therapeutics to improve outcomes for patients with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis (UC). Additionally, a review of S1P receptor modulators as a therapeutic target to support the management of ulcerative colitis will be discussed. The faculty will then analyze clinical trial data for the safety and efficacy of novel S1P therapeutics to treat patients with UC. Following, a review of best practices for developing treatment strategies for patients with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis will be explored. 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.
Gastroenterologists and other healthcare professionals who care for patients with ulcerative colitis
- Understand the sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) receptor modulator as a therapeutic target to support the management of ulcerative colitis.
- Analyze recently completed and ongoing clinical trials for the efficacy and safety of novel S1P therapeutics to treat patients with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis.
- Develop treatment strategies for the application of novel therapeutics to treat patients with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis.
