Inhibiting the associated protein, PAI-1, appeared to ease inflammation and symptoms in a mouse model of inflammatory bowel disease.

Genome- and exome-wide association analysis on inflammatory bowel disease patients with or without thiopurine-induced myelosuppression revealed new and known risk genes.

Research suggests gut microbe representation, abundance, and function may provide clues for diagnosing Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and irritable bowel syndrome.

The test is a 15-biomarker quantitative PCR panel used to stratify patients with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis based on the severity of their illness.

Janssen R&D will use BiomX's microbiome-based biomarker discovery platform to identify IBD patients likely to respond to a particular therapy.

The phenome-wide association study focused on SNPs near potential drug target sites with ties to one or more phenotypes that might impact target suitability.

In adults and children with Crohn's, miR-31 was found at higher levels in gut tissue, and the cases marked by lower expression tended to have poorer outcomes.

Researchers compared findings from genome-wide association studies for 62 traits or conditions with genes implicated in 20 Mendelian disorder types, uncovering new ties.
