Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Gastroenterology Volume 27, Issue 03: IBD: Drugs and Serology/Cancer.

The goals of this program are more effective use of thiopurine drugs for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and prevention of complications associated with IBD and its treatment. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Optimize utilization of thiopurine therapy by using information collected from drug metabolite monitoring.
2. Analyze serologic data from patients with IBD to predict prognosis.
3. Ensure that patients with IBD receive appropriate preventive measures for skin and cervical cancers.
4. Determine relative risk for colorectal cancer in patients with IBD.
5. Provide effective colorectal cancer screening for patients with IBD.

The original programs were presented by Robert A. Wiebe, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and Lalit Bajaj, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Research Director, Section of Emergency Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Denver.
