Collaborators Uncover Genetic Basis of Very Early Onset Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Published on in CHOP News

Marcella Devoto, PhD, a researcher in the Division of Human Genetics and the Very Early Onset Inflammatory Bowel Disease (VEO-IBD) Program, and Judith Kelsen, MD, the director of the VEO-IBD Program, together with their team of researchers, bioinformaticians, and molecular biologists, are targeting a specific manifestation of IBD. The condition is more commonly seen in adults and older children, and more often responds better to treatment in those patient populations.

Read more about their initiatives to ultimately improve care for children with VEO-IBD with targeted, individualized therapy in an article on Cornerstone, a blog from the Children's Hospital of Phladelphia Research Institute.
