Presentation on the benefits of EnteraGam® (serum-derived bovine immunoglobulin/protein isolate, SBI) in patients with pouchitis to occur at the 2015 Advances in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (AIBD) Annual Meeting

Entera Health, Inc. today announced an upcoming presentation of results from a retrospective chart review of patients with pouchitis who were placed on SBI therapy because they were refractory to other treatment options.
