Genetic risk, dysbiosis, and treatment stratification using host genome and gut microbiome in inflammatory bowel disease.
Clinical and translational gastroenterology. 2018-01-18; 9.1: e132.
Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), comprised of Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), are characterized by a complex pathophysiology that is thought to result from an aberrant immune response to a dysbiotic luminal microbiota in genetically susceptible individuals. New technologies support the joint assessment of host-microbiome interaction.
