BACKGROUND AND AIM Ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD) are two major phenotypes of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that present with inflammation of the colon or the entire gastrointestinal tract, respectively. Genome-wide association studies have confirmed the role of nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain protein-2 (NOD2) variants and identified several other genes associated with IBD. We investigated whether variants in NOD2 and interleukin-23 receptor (IL23R) are associated… CONTINUE READING
