This action achieves two crucial objectives: It permits the intestinal tissue to heal and also it additionally soothes the symptoms of fever, diarrhea, and also stomach pain. When the symptoms are brought controlled (this is known as inducing remission), medical therapy is utilized to reduce the frequency of condition flares (this is known as maintaining remission, or maintenance).""-- CCFA.
