Role of Genetics in IBD Development and Treatment Response Focus of Irish Study

Role of Genetics in IBD Development and Treatment Response Focus of Irish Study
Genomics Medicine Ireland (GMI) is launching a study to investigate the role genes may play in developing and treating inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and how genetic risks might be affected by behavior or environmental factors. Researchers are currently enrolling IBD patients being treated at St. Vincent’s University Hospital and Tallaght Hospital, both in Ireland. Certain genes have been identified in studies as risk genes for IBD, and a linkage region containing the NOD2 gene is known to be present in Crohn’s disease patients.
