Immunogenetics of Very Early Onset Inflammatory Bowel Disease


The purpose of this research study is to identify genes that are involved in the development of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) at a young age (less than 8 years of age).  This is a case-control study of IBD patients which compares children with symptoms and/or diagnosis of IBD at <8 years of age with those not diagnosed until  ≥8 years of age, as well as with family members, and other children without a diagnosis of IBD. Samples are collected for testing, such as blood, stool, oral or rectal swabs, and/or tissue samples. IRB 14-010826
