ABSTRACT
The article presents information about the development of endoscopic activity scores Crohn's disease. Scientists have now developed a simplified score by selecting the most reproducible variables in an interobserver study, developing an easy to use scoring system with them, and validating the score in a different patient cohort. Lastly, reliability of the new simplified endoscopic activity score for Crohn's disease was assessed in all patients and correlated with clinical and biochemical parameters. The four variables used were presence of deep ulcers, proportion of the surface affected by ulcers, proportion affected by any other lesions, and stenoses, with a possible score of 0-3 for each.
