IBD is a group of chronic disorders characterized by relapsing inflammation of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The most common entities are Crohn’s Disease (CD) and Ulcerative Colitis (UC). While CD is characterized by a segmental transmural inflammation and granulomatous lesions of the whole GI tract, inflammation in UC is mostly restricted to the colon and the rectum. Both incidence and prevalence of IBD are currently increasing worldwide [1]. Although the etiology of IBD has not yet been fully elucidated, more than a hundred genetic risk loci have been identified so far.

Viruses in the gut connected to inflammatory bowel disease — The American Microbiome Institute A new study has shown that the composition of viruses in the gut may play an important role in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you’ve seen us write about something called the virome. The virome is the collection of viruses in the body and similarly to the microbiome, it may have profound affects on human health. This study led by scientists at Washington University in St. Louis and published in Cell is the first to correlate a disease with changes in a person’s virome. IBD, specifically Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis (UC), are diseases that have been characterized by decreased bacterial diversity in the gut.
