    Treat-to-target goals are part of the ever-changing, patient-centric environment associated with the management of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). So how can you keep those goals in mind when treating your patients with IBD?  This Clinical Case Countdown challenges Dr. Uma Mahadevan and Dr. Fernando Velayos to address a range of clinical scenarios before the clock runs out. Can they “Beat the Buzzer?”
