VIDEO: Hanauer discusses importance of early positioning, head-to-head trials of IBD therapies

ORLANDO — In this video exclusive, Stephen B. Hanauer, MD, professor of medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, and co-chair of AIBD 2016, discusses his presentation on where new IBD therapies will fit within clinical practice in the future, during which he called for a “culture shift” in how stakeholders work together.

“[I] advocate earlier therapy in both ulcerative colitis and in particular Crohn’s disease, and head-to-head comparisons so that we can really begin to position these therapies more effectively ... in clinical practice, and also convince pharmacy benefit managers of their real importance,” he said.
