Accumulating evidence suggests that the gut microbiota plays pivotal roles in the regulation of intestinal homeostasis and IBD pathogenesis.

Podcast: Perivascular nerve dysfunction in inflammatory bowel disease

What is the effect of vascular function in the pathogenesis of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)?

Patients’ experiences and challenges in living with inflammatory bowel disease

The purpose of this study was to explore patient experiences in living with IBD and uncover factors that contribute to psychological distress.

The arthritis connection to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD): why has it taken so long to understand it?

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) associated arthritis is a subgroup of spondyloarthritis (SpA) that has suffered from lack of recognition in rheumatology clinical and research circles for over 100 years.

Sarcopenia and vitamin D deficiency in patients with Crohn’s disease: Pathological conditions that should be linked together

Sarcopenia is a prevalent condition in patients with Crohn’s disease (CD), representing an independent predictor factor for the development of major postoperative complications.
