Special Issue in Gastrointestinal Disorders: Aspects of the Pathogenesis and Management of the Inflammatory Bowel Diseases 2.0
This Special Issue is a continuation of our previous Special Issue “The Interplay between Genetic Risk Factors, the Intestinal Microbiota, the Environment and Immune Responses in the Pathogenesis of IBD”. (https://0-www-mdpi-com.brum.beds.ac.uk/journal/gastrointestdisord/special_issues/IBD)
The Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) are a group of conditions that feature active and chronic inflammatory in the gut: Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are the two main types of IBD. The prevalence of these conditions is increasing in many countries around the world. Although it is clear that various factors (including environmental, genetic, immune and microbial aspects) contribute to the cause of IBD, the pathogenesis of this condition is not yet fully understood. Furthermore, given the current lack of a cure, management approaches and outcomes remain important topics of interest. This Special Issue will focus upon the key aspects that contribute to the pathogenesis of IBD and upon the management and outcomes of IBD. Primary research or review articles are welcome.
