Predicting the most effective treatment for IBD

Dear Sir or Madam,

The earlier treatment is started, the better. But treatment does not always work equally well for all patients despite having the same disease. In the case of inflammatory bowel disease, the results of therapy can differ from person to person as well. A research project led by a young physician from Kiel has therefore set itself the goal of being able to predict in the future which biologics therapy will deliver the best possible results for each individual. You can find out how this is to be achieved in our interview.

Enjoy reading!

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a group of disorders that cause chronic inflammation in the intestine. Early effective treatment can help manage this condition and improve the quality of life of patients. A research project aims to identify molecular markers to better assess the chances of success of certain biological therapies and subsequently determine the best individualized treatment plan.
