Pulmonary function has been assessed in 36 outpatients with inflammatory bowel disease. The carbon monoxide transfer factor was found to be significantly reduced in patients as compared with matched controls (P less than 0.01). The reason for this reduction is not clear but it is unlikely to be due to sulfasalazine (Salazosulphapyridine).
