CARE Perspectives on ACG/UEGW 2016

The CARE Gastroenterology Faculty recently attended the ACG 2016 conference (Las Vegas, NV - October 14-19) and the UEGW 2016 conference (Vienna, Austria – October 15-19). The CARE Perspectives on ACG/UEGW 2016 Conference Report covers a wide variety of content presented at the conference within irritable bowel syndrome and inflammable bowel disease. 

The NOR-SWITCH trial was presented at UEGW 2016, and investigated the impact of switching from the infliximab originator biologic, to its biosimilar. The CARE Faculty, led by Drs. John Marshall, Alain Bitton, and Brian Feagan, have looked at this trial in more depth. Stay tuned for their Canadian perspectives on this subject!
