Sudha Amarnath, MD of Cleveland Clinic answers: Is this truly safe? Are these outcomes real?

IBD is a risk factor for the development of rectal cancers, and IBD patients are frequently diagnosed with locally advanced cancers.

“Patients who have IBD are at a higher risk of developing rectal cancer compared to the general population, and also tend to have worse prognoses with locally-advanced cancers,” says Cleveland Clinic radiation oncologist Sudha Amarnath, MD, the study’s lead author.
