Ulcerative Colitis : Current and Future Trends


This expert presentation is exclusive only for GlobalData’s clients. The recording and presentation will be available on the Intelligence Center. For any requests or questions about this presentation please contact

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) refers to two chronic autoimmune diseases that cause intestinal inflammation: Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). In UC, chronic inflammation affects the colon or large intestines, which are synonymous terms. UC usually manifests initially in the terminal part of the colon, the rectum, and is termed ulcerative proctitis. It can extend to the entire left part of the colon (left-sided proctitis) or the entire colon (pancolitis).

The treatment of UC differs by location of the disease, severity, chronicity, prior and current treatments as well as hospitalization. UC therapy requires a lifetime of continuous treatment and monitoring for different states of activity within the disease. Currently, drugs with new mechanisms of action are on the horizon to add to the current treatment options, such as JAK inhibitors and S1P1 agonists. For the long-term management of UC, endoscopic remission, also known as mucosal healing, has recently become a significant aim for patients.

In this expert presentation Patrick Aiyes, Healthcare Analyst at GlobalData, will present the changing UC treatment landscape between 2016 and 2026, drawing on insights from GlobalData’s upcoming report, Ulcerative Colitis: Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2026. The current treatment options and drug pipeline for UC will be covered, including a discussion on GlobalData’s sales forecast for the UC market. The webinar will include insights from KOLs covering the most important unmet needs for UC, as well as the opportunities which are likely to remain by the end of the forecast period. Dr. Lakshmi Dharmarajan, Associate Director of Immunology at GlobalData, will moderate a Q&A session following the presentation.
