The common symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease includes the severe abdominal cramps and pain, persistent diarrhea, occasional rectal bleeding. The IBD has no permanent cure and requires the lifelong disease management and treatment. Several medications such as corticosteroids, aminosalicyclates, immunomodulators, and biologic drugs such as TNF inhibitors and up to certain extent antibiotic drugs are prescribed to relive the symptoms of these diseases.

Global Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Treatment Market: Trends and Opportunities

The global IBD treatment market is projected to be primarily driven by the new product development and approvals, rising use of biologic drugs and biosimilar drugs for the treatment of IBD.
