Mount Sinai Scientists Develop First Predictive Model of Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Using information from patient records at different stages of inflammatory bowel disease, New York scientists have developed the world's first gene-based predictive model of the disorder. An article on the model, titled “A functional genomics predictive network model identifies regulators of inflammatory bowel disease,” was published in the journal Nature Genetics. Previous studies had identified more than 200 genes that play a role in IBD, but the data was not in a form that would allow a research team to create a model that could predict the disorder's development and progression.
