Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a set of chronic, relapsing inflammatory diseases of the intestine. The two major subtypes of IBD are Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). Although the pathogenesis of IBD remains largely unknown, Crohn's disease is considered to result from the interaction of environmental factors, including intestinal microbiota, with host immune mechanisms in genetically susceptible individuals. Recent advances in sequencing technologies have allowed us to… CONTINUE READING
