Inflammatory Bowel Disease 4

Inflammatory Bowel Disease 4: Introduction

Inflammatory Bowel Disease 4: Inflammatory bowel disease refers to digestive symptoms resulting from chronic bowel inflammation. Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are two of the main subtypes of the disease. Scientists have discovered an array of genetic mutations which can result in an increased susceptibility to inflammatory bowel disease. Not all people with the genetic anomaly will develop the condition but it can increase the risk especially if other environmental factors are also present. The severity of the disease that develops is variable. Inflammatory Bowel Disease 4 is linked to 14q11-q12. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Inflammatory Bowel Disease 4 is available below.
