BACKGROUND North American and European genome-wide association scans have identified ATG16L1 and IL23R as novel inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) susceptibility genes and subsequent reports confirmed these findings in large independent populations. The aims of this study were to investigate the association and examine genotype-phenotype relationships in a Hungarian IBD cohort. METHODS 415 unrelated IBD patients (CD: 266, age: 35.2+/-12.1 years, duration: 8.7+/-7.5 years and UC: 149, age: 44.4… CONTINUE READING
