Researchers Produce Genetic Map to Help Determine IBD Causes
Researchers are narrowing in on the specific genes that are responsible for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), a discovery that could lead to better treatment strategies and new therapy targets. Scientists conducted detailed genetic and statistical analysis of over 600 genes previously associated with IBD, allowing them to identify 18 genetic variants actively involved in IBD development, according to an article published in the science journal Nature. The findings are featured in a study titled, “Fine-mapping inflammatory bowel disease loci to single-variant resolution.” The underlying cause of IBD remains unknown, and
