Genome-wide meta-analysis increases to 71 the number of confirmed Crohn's disease susceptibility loci
We undertook a meta-analysis of six Crohn's disease genome-wide association studies (GWAS) comprising 6,333 affected individuals (cases) and 15,056 controls and followed up the top associationExpand

Genome-wide association defines more than 30 distinct susceptibility loci for Crohn's disease
Several risk factors for Crohn's disease have been identified in recent genome-wide association studies. To advance gene discovery further, we combined data from three studies on Crohn's disease (aExpand

A Genome-Wide Association Study Identifies IL23R as an Inflammatory Bowel Disease Gene
The inflammatory bowel diseases Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are common, chronic disorders that cause abdominal pain, diarrhea, and gastrointestinal bleeding. To identify genetic factorsExpand

The treatment-naive microbiome in new-onset Crohn's disease.
Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), including Crohn's disease (CD), are genetically linked to host pathways that implicate an underlying role for aberrant immune responses to intestinal microbiota.Expand

Genome-wide association study identifies new susceptibility loci for Crohn disease and implicates autophagy in disease pathogenesis
We present a genome-wide association study of ileal Crohn disease and two independent replication studies that identify several new regions of association to Crohn disease. Specifically, in additionExpand

Development and validation of a pediatric Crohn's disease activity index.
Clinical and laboratory observations of 133 children and adolescents with Crohn's disease were used to validate an index of severity of illness previously developed by a group of senior pediatricExpand

Functional variants of OCTN cation transporter genes are associated with Crohn disease
Crohn disease is a chronic, inflammatory disease of the gastrointestinal tract. A locus of ∼250 kb at 5q31 (IBD5) was previously associated with susceptibility to Crohn disease, as indicated byExpand

Meta-analysis identifies 29 additional ulcerative colitis risk loci, increasing the number of confirmed associations to 47
Genome-wide association studies and candidate gene studies in ulcerative colitis have identified 18 susceptibility loci. We conducted a meta-analysis of six ulcerative colitis genome-wide associationExpand

Consensus guidelines of ECCO/ESPGHAN on the medical management of pediatric Crohn's disease.
Children and adolescents with Crohn's disease (CD) present often with a more complicated disease course compared to adult patients. In addition, the potential impact of CD on growth, pubertal andExpand

Genetic variation in the 5q31 cytokine gene cluster confers susceptibility to Crohn disease
Linkage disequilibrium (LD) mapping provides a powerful method for fine-structure localization of rare disease genes, but has not yet been widely applied to common disease. We sought to design aExpand
