Increase in inflammatory bowel disease in developing world predicted

Science Daily (US) - 20/10/2017
For the last century, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has been a challenge for patients and the medical community in the western world. New research shows that countries outside the western world may now be facing the same pattern of increasing IBD rates.

Study findings provide new insight into inflammatory bowel disease

News Medical (Australia) - 06/10/2017
Findings from a study into Crohn's disease, led by William G. Kerr, Ph.D., of SUNY Upstate Medical University, and his collaborators at the Erasmus Medical Center in the Netherlands, provide the first evidence that patients with debilitating inflammatory bowel disease lack sufficient quantities of a protein that comes from the SHIP1 gene.

Discovery advances understanding of inflammatory bowel disease

Science Daily (US) - 06/10/2017
New findings could help guide doctors to determine how best to treat patients with Crohn's disease, outlines a new report.

Antifungals and probiotics may play a key role in the development of treatment for Crohn's disease

Science Daily (US) - 04/10/2017
Scientists have determined that fungus may play a key role in chronic intestinal inflammation disorders. They found that patients with Crohn's disease tend to have much higher levels of the fungus Candida tropicalis compared to their healthy family members. A new review looks at these findings and provides insights into potential new therapeutic approaches using antifungals and probiotics in the treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn's disease (CD).

IBD patients may stay healthier when doctors monitor medications before they lose efficacy

Immune cells produce wound healing factor, could lead to new IBD treatment

Science Daily (US) - 20/09/2017
Specific immune cells have the ability to produce a healing factor that can promote wound repair in the intestine, a finding that could lead to new, potential therapeutic treatments for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), according to a new research study.

Crohn's & Colitis Foundation and Oxford University Press partner to publish Inflammatory Bowels Diseases journal

News Medical (Australia) - 20/09/2017
The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation and Oxford University Press announced today that they have entered into a new partnership to publish the Foundation's journal Inflammatory Bowels Diseases beginning in 2018.

MSC transplantation can be safe, effective approach to treat Crohn's disease-related fistula

News Medical (Australia) - 14/09/2017
A growing body of clinical evidence shows that transplantation of a patient's own mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) to achieve a cure and prevent recurrent of Crohn's disease-related fistula can be a safe and effective addition to surgery.

Probiotics may become new preventative or therapeutic strategy for IBD-related colon cancer

News Medical (Australia) - 14/09/2017
In an innovative approach to colorectal cancer (CRC) prevention and treatment, scientists are studying ways to replace missing metabolites in patients prone to gut inflammation and CRC.

Study provides new insights into biologic networks involved in IBD

News Medical (Australia) - 12/09/2017
