Clinical Trials Community

Welcome to the Clinical Trials Community

Did You Know..?

1/3 of patients don't respond

1/3 of patients don't respond
to initial IBD treatments, which
makes new trials a vital part
of developing new treatments

60% lose responsiveness

60% lose responsiveness
to an IBD treatment over time
and need to have other
