  • Overview

    Ulcerative Colitis (UC) patients may experience a wide variety of symptoms, and there are well-documented gaps in individual patient care. This article reviews the mechanisms of action for newer investigational therapies that may offer the potential to optimize induction and maintenance of remission in patients with UC, as well as review the emergence of biomarkers that may help us personalize treatment in patients.
