Despite the recent developments in the diagnosis and management of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), patients still suffer from disabling bowel symptoms and significant disease complications and many questions remain to improve their care. IBD is a chronic disease, whose management could be divided into the five different stages of chronic diseases, ranging from the pre-treatment evaluation phase to the induction therapy, maintenance therapy, monitor and re-establishment of control and the cessation of the disease. Reconciling these phases with the current unmet needs in IBD could help tailor priorities for research. In this review, some of the unanswered questions in the management of both Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis will be addressed, by following this paradigm of chronic diseases’ management.
