Monika Fischer, MD, talks about focusing research on patients with more severe IBD symptoms at 2014 ACG Annual Scientific Meeting in Philadelphia, PA.

She discusses her primary work with the aim to prevent further recurrence.

Fischer remarked, “Currently I do not have the right answer on what is the optimal protocol in the severely ill patient population. Zane Kasan will present tomorrow on a new scoring system that will include certain parameters such as age, IBD, kidney disease, diabetes, and so forth to predict the risk of mortality in their critically ill patient population.”
