"Patients and physicians have changed their expectations for the treatment of Crohn's disease. It is no longer acceptable to have chronically active symptoms that interfere with a patient's ability to have a normal quality of life. We have shown that it is possible to achieve remission in Crohn's disease with appropriate therapy."
