Crohn's disease

A genome-wide association study of more than 2,700 individuals with Crohn's disease uncovered prognosis-related loci distinct from those linked to disease risk.

Based on genetic patterns in thousands of individuals with primary sclerosing cholangitis, researchers identified four new risk loci and explored ties to IBD.

In colon tissue samples from individuals with Crohn's disease, researchers discovered either colon- or ileum-like expression features.

A team of scientists and entrepreneurs is trying to build a company around a dataset from a large multi-omics clinical study funded by Genome Canada.

Researchers used genomic approaches to search for disease clues in purified cells from ileum or colon biopsies of pediatric inflammatory bowel disease patients.

IQuity's current tests analyze gene expression patterns detected in mRNA, but the firm is also exploring the diagnostic potential of long non-coding RNAs.

Using genotyping data, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia-led team found high heritability across pediatric-onset autoimmune diseases.

Through a meta-analysis of 10 pediatric-onset autoimmune diseases, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia researchers found 22 loci shared among the conditions.

The technology links distinctive genomic variants in bacteria of the human gut microbiome to two forms of inflammatory bowel disease.

Parlaying expertise in genetics, pathology, radiology, immunology, and gastroenterology, the center will focus on personalized medicine for Crohn's disease.
