This article presents information about studies related to gastroenterology published in various journals as of December 2005. According to a study published in a 2005 issue of the journal "Gastroenterology," thiopurine therapy is known to be an effective maintenance therapy in Crohn's disease. This study therefore shows that continuation of azathioprine beyond 3.5 years of remission is effective in reducing further relapses. Another study published in a 2005 issue of the journal "Gastrointestinal Endoscopy," push enteroscopy has limited depth of insertion but double balloon enteroscopy may allow deeper examination in case of small bowel syndrome.
