Janssen’s Commitment to Inflammatory Bowel Disease
A Message from our Gastroenterology Leaders

Dear All,

We are honored to be sharing our latest research in inflammatory bowel disease at this year’s virtual United European Gastroenterology Week (UEGW). At Janssen, we remain steadfast in our commitment in IBD by seeking out solutions, uncovering novel treatment approaches, and working collaboratively with the brightest and most passionate minds to deliver transformational therapies for IBD patients. We recognize there is still much work to be done in IBD, and that many patients around the world are struggling to find the right treatment, maintain symptom relief and achieve remission. These unmet needs are what motivates and drives us to continue to pioneer in the area of IBD, so that people around the world can live free from disease.

Learn more about our research at UEGW below!
