Crohn’s Disease Study

Crohn’s Disease is a chronic inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Affecting any part of the GI tract from the mouth to the anus, it most commonly affects the end of the small bowel (the ileum) and the beginning of the colon. Symptoms may depend on which part of the GI tract is affected. Common symptoms included persistent diarrhea, rectal bleeding, constipation, fatigue, loss of appetite, and abdominal pain.

As many as 700,000 Americans may be affected by Crohn’s Disease. While affecting both men and women equally, it is more prevalent among adolescents and young adults. A cause for the disease is not well understood, however recent research suggests hereditary, genetics, and/or environmental factors contribute to its development.
