Crohn's: Looking to the Future
“Over the last decade, treatment improved dramatically with the introduction of biologics. That forward progression has slowed somewhat in the last few years, but there are a lot of hopeful new treatments in the pipeline. I think we will continue to find biologics that are quite effective. And in the near future, we are refining the use of current therapies to more effectively treat Crohn’s disease,” says Joshua Korzenik, MD, assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. Korzenik is the director for the Crohn’s and Colitis Center at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
There is no question that living with Crohn’s disease is a challenge. But the future looks bright as researchers from all over the world focus on understanding more about this complex and mystifying condition.
