First multicentre population-based study in Asia on Mucosal Healing in Ulcerative Colitis
7 Nov 2017
Although mucosal healing is associated with improved long-term clinical outcomes in patients with ulcerative colitis, this first multicentre population-based study in Asia of “Endoscopic and Histological Mucosal Healing in Ulcerative Colitis in the First Year of Diagnosis: Results from a Population-based Inception Cohort from Six Countries in Asia” finds that mucosal healing was achieved in fewer than half of patients in the first year of diagnosis (J Crohns Colitis. 2017 Jul 26. doi: 10.1093/ecco-jcc/jjx103. [Epub ahead of print]).
