These sequence changes include two missense mutations, R702W and G908R, and(More)
OBJECTIVE:Recent studies have suggested that a susceptibility gene located on chromosome 16 and designated IBD1 may contribute to the development of Crohn's disease (CD). However, these findings were observed in predominantly non-Jewish populations; in the three studies where Ashkenazi Jews were included for analysis, the results have been widely divergent.(More)
