Genetic Links for IBD

Researchers of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, sharing raw data and newly collected genetic information from centers around the world, have found associations between risk of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and genes involved in immune-related diseases and the immune system's response to pathogens. The study brings together data from 75,000 IBD patients and marks an important step toward honing in on why these illnesses occur and personalizing treatments for them.
