Genetic Markers and Personalized Medicine


There are many genes associated with an increased risk of IBD. Research in this area is looking to identify which genetic markers are predictors of disease onset or severity so that healthcare professionals are better able to screen and personalize treatments. Genetic research is also trying to understand the role of certain genes in turning on inflammation or decreasing the body’s ability to kill some bacteria.
