The findings could help physicians identify Crohn’s disease patients who are more likely to develop spondyloarthritis, enabling them to prescribe more effective therapies for both conditions. Crohn’s disease, a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes abdominal pain and diarrhea, affects about… Read more

New links between the human genome and inflammation tracers have been found by researchers in Finland. In a study of over ten million DNA variations, new possibilities for treatment of diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease and celiac disease were uncovered. Researchers at the Research Centre of Applied and Preventive Cardiovascular Medicine at the… Read more

Nanoparticles designed to block a cell-surface molecule playing a key role in inflammation could be a safe treatment for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), according to researchers in the Institute for Biomedical Sciences at Georgia State University and Southwest University in China. The scientists developed chitosan nanoparticles, or microscopic particles, to reduce the expression of CD98… Read more
