AbstractInflammatory bowel diseases, Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis are characterised by chronic transmural, segmental and typically granulomatous inflammation of the gut. Each has a peak age of onset in the second to fourth decades of life and prevalence has been increasing significantly in both Western countries and Japan over the last decade, while their pathogenesis remains largely unknown. Recently, positive association of CD with the variants in interleukin 23 receptor (IL23R… CONTINUE READING
