This session is brought to you in collaboration with Advances in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (AIBD).

The management of inflammatory diseases has traditionally focused on symptom alleviation without addressing the underlying disease pathology. However, these treatment goals are evolving in light of new insights into disease pathophysiology and therapeutic advances capable of more directly tackling the biologic activity behind the disease.

It is now believed that a treat-to-target approach using objective biological measures to regularly assess disease activity will be able to substantially improve short- and long-term outcomes and mitigate disease progression.

This lecture will discuss current guideline recommendations, as well as available and emerging therapeutic options, including targeted biologics and endoscopic healing approaches, that have made such individualized treatment goals possible.
