ABSTRACT
The article presents two studies related to clinical and investigative medicine. In the first research, author Katherine Anne Siminovitch outlines some of the major successes in identifying inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) susceptibility loci and alleles. Another article by Leo P. Renaud, explores the functions of vasopressin.

    Crohn's disease (CD), a subtype of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), is a complex disorder, with both genetic and environmental aetiology. Three sequence variants in the CARD15 gene have recently been shown to be associated with susceptibility to CD. There is also evidence of an excess of rare...

    Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is the term used for a group of diseases with yet unknown etiology, prevalence of which is increasing almost everywhere in the world. The disease was almost non-existent four decades ago in the east, including the middle-east, while now a days it is seen more and...

    Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are the result of an imbalanced mucosal T cell response. Despite the identification of a genetic susceptibility region in the NOD2/CARD15 (nucleotide-binding oligomerisation domain 2/caspase recruitment domain...

    The volume of research undertaken on the genetic susceptibility of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has been tremendous. Genome-wide linkage studies pointed towards more than 10 chromosomal regions and fine-mapping of these regions led to the identification of a number of genes, including CARD15...

    The MEP1A gene, located on human chromosome 6p (mouse chromosome 17) in a susceptibility region for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), encodes the α-subunit of metalloproteinase meprin A, which is expressed in the intestinal epithelium. This study shows a genetic association of MEP1A with IBD...
