Peer-reviewed experimental & modeling study on animals and cells Elevated levels of the key cellular process of apoptosis have been implicated in intestinal inflammation and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in a new study from the Quadram Institute. IBD is a long-term, painful and debilitating condition characterized by inflammation in the gut. Over 300,000 people in […]Continue Reading ...
According to a new statement from a panel of national and international experts in gastroenterology, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and other areas, interventional (or therapeutic) IBD endoscopy has an expanding role in the treatment of disease and of adverse events from surgery. The report from the panel, Role of interventional inflammatory bowel disease in the […]Continue Reading ...
A study published today in the journal Gut shows that women with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are at greater risk of developing a mental illness after giving birth compared to the overall population. Study authors found that more than one-fifth of pregnant women with IBD had a new-onset mental health diagnosis. For every 43 pregnancies, […]Continue Reading ...

Children who develop inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease) have an increased risk of death, both in childhood and later in life, a study from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden published in the journal Gastroenterology reports. It is therefore important that patients who are diagnosed as children are carefully monitored, argue the researchers behind […]Continue Reading ...
With an estimated 1.6 million people in the U.S. dealing with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), physicians can have a hard time telling which newly diagnosed patients have a high risk of severe inflammation or what therapies will be most effective. Now researchers report in the journal JCI Insights finding an epigenetic signature in patient cells […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a set of painful conditions that can cause severe diarrhea and fatigue. Treatments can include medications and surgery. But now researchers report that a simple dietary intervention could mitigate colonic inflammation and improve gut health. In this case, a strawberry—or rather, less than a cupful of […]Continue Reading ...
Scientists at the University of Louisville have shown that a microbial metabolite, Urolithin A, derived from a compound found in berries and pomegranates, can reduce and protect against inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Millions of people worldwide suffer from IBD in the form of either ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, and few effective long-term treatments are […]Continue Reading ...

Dr Alan Yu and Associate Professor Seth Masters. Credit: Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research Australian researchers have uncovered clues in the immune system that reveal how the balance of ‘good’ gut bacteria is maintained. The information could help in the prevention and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The study, published in […]Continue Reading ...
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), an umbrella term for a number of gut disorders—including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease—remains a clinical challenge. Current treatments don’t work for all patients, and many stop working over time. But despite their different responses to treatment, all IBD patients share a commonality: intestinal inflammation. Better understanding what drives gut inflammation […]Continue Reading ...
Osaka University researchers deliver microRNAs to suppress inflammatory reaction to affected areas in patients with inflammatory bowel disorder Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), such as Crohn disease and ulcerative colitis, are chronic inflammatory diseases of unknown cause, and the number of IBD patients is on the rise. Various inflammatory cytokines, including TNF-α and interleukin-6 (IL6), damage […]Continue Reading ...
August 21, 2018 University of Houston researcher Chandra Mohan is set to make a breakthrough in predicting and monitoring inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). With $347,490 from the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America, he and IBD expert Subra Kugathasan, a gastroenterologist at Emory University, are examining stool protein biomarkers that indicate the disease. An autoimmune […]Continue Reading ...
