Share the AGA Patient Education Section in the February 2020 issue of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CGH) to help your patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) understand their medical treatment options, including:

  • Aminosalicylates.
  • Corticosteroids.
  • Immunosuppressants.
  • Biologics.
  • Biosimilars.

This is part of a series of articles that is being published bimonthly in the AGA Patient Education Section of CGH on what patients need to know about living with IBD. The series can be found in its entirety in the AGA GI Patient Center, along with more specific information about potential side effects and examples of each class of drugs.

The “What patients need to know about living with IBD” series was reviewed by Deborah D. Proctor, MD, AGAF, and David T. Rubin, MD, AGAF.

Content creation was funded through an educational grant from Takeda Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc. Takeda had no control over the editorial content.
