The European Crohns and Colitis Organization (ECCO) is the largest forum of medical IBD specialists in the world. The 2018 ECCO Congress drew 6,676 delegates from 86 different countries. Over one thousand abstracts were accepted and presented this year, covering overwhelming amounts of data and analysis. The wide range of topics included novel treatment strategies, IBD diagnosis, disease predictions, management of IBD, evolving concepts in IBD, and Pediatric IBD.

I encourage you to check the detailed agenda of the event. The long lists of studies and presentations demonstrate the magnitude of the IBD challenge, and the enormous investments of money and talent that are being invested in finding better treatment options. This raises hopes for better understanding and ultimately resolution and cure of IBD.
