Gastroenterology

Ferring enjoys a strong reputation within the international gastroenterology community, being able to offer effective medications for the treatment of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.

Gastroenterology is the study of the gastrointestinal (GI) or digestive system, including its problems and diseases. The digestive or GI tract (also known as the alimentary canal) is the main component of the digestive system and consists of an irregular ‘tube’ eight to nine meters long incorporating the mouth, esophagus, stomach, duodenum, small bowel, large bowel, rectum and ending with the anus.

Through a committed research division, Ferring continually strives to improve the treatment of long-term and life threatening gastrointestinal problems. Our research program has resulted in the development of many effective products.

These products are use to treat people suffering from distressing gastroenterology conditions such as:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Bleeding oesophageal varices
  • Hepatorenal syndrome
  • Preparation for gastro-intestinal examinations
