Lady Organic I totally missed it! I'm normally good about searching through posts before I post something like this. Sorry.

I hope it talks not only about Entyvio but what comes after. I have heard some amazing stories from those on Entyvio trials so I'm actually not minding anymore about my kid switching if that is finalized tomorrow at her appointment.

Now to think of my most pressing IBD question. ....

no problem at all, it will simply give it more attention :-)

even if the webminar is supported by Takeda,it doenst mean they will discuss mainly about Entyvio. all symposiums and webminars from crohns and colitis canada I have attended are always sponsored by a pharma company and they have never emphasized on any specific medication previously. i think it must be in the rules of the organization not to do so.

I have another live conference opportunity for tonight about the interraction of electromagnetic waves and our body, given by a McGill medecine professor and researcher in toxicology. Im torn between the two. The Crohn's webminar will be recorded and put on the site like the previous ones I imagine, so I'll see.

Lady, you were right, it was recorded. I was a bit disappointed.me here werea lot of typos in the presentation & I would have preferred a longer q&a period. I think they answered 5 questions and it was brief. The best take away was an image on the meds. I can't attach it on my tablet to the forum so I will try the desktop tomorrow. hope the other we binary was good!

I listened to it. Interesting but I wish they would have focussed more on future stuff. And one question said muscle healing, I'm guessing they may have meant mucous healing. I agree the image with ll the therapies divided by type of action was interesting though.
