Video from SysmedIBD explaining Systems Medicine for Inflammatory Bowel Disease

SysmedIBD stands for Systems medicine of chronic Inflammatory Bowel Disease. IBD is the chronic inflammation of the bowel and usually strikes when youare in your mid-teens to your thirties, but it also affects peopleolder than this and can even appear in young toddlers.

The research undertaken in SysmedIBD has made very exciting progress. A new diagnostic tool identifies a group of patients which show a strong response in cell culture compared to controls and an old drug used for treatment of other diseases has shown very promising lab test results and after more research may be used for a subgroup of IBD sufferers.
