Digestive Disease Week 2018

For nearly 50 years, Digestive Disease Week (DDW) has been at the forefront of education and knowledge-sharing in the fields of gastroenterology, hepatology, GI endoscopy, gastrointestinal surgery and other related fields.

In 2018, over 14,000 people attended DDW in Washington DC, USA. With over 5,000 lectures, posters and abstract presentations, a wealth of data and insights were shared over the four days. With a focus on IBD, we have reviewed the abstracts, distilled the most pertinent points and developed a series of five articles that cover some of the broad themes addressed by speakers at the Congress. The current articles address new insights and recommendations for the clinical management of IBD, improving IBD outcomes through better monitoring, advances in IBD therapy, and comorbidities with additional articles being released weekly covering topics such as the use of biosimilars in IBD.
