Improving the diagnosis of patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

Aim of project
The aim of the project is to improve the diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). This project is a part of the Nordic study, NORDTREAT, that aims to identify biomarkers for discriminating between individuals diagnosed with IBD and those without (non-IBD) among individuals referred for suspicion of IBD. Patients are recruited from 4 Nordic countries. In Denmark, patients will be recruited from Odense-Svendborg University Hospital and at the University Hospital of Southern Jutland, Aabenraa. The student will participate in the inclusion of patients in Aabenraa and writing of manuscript(s). In addition, the student will be offered to conduct a register-based study investigating the course of individuals referred for suspicion on IBD.

IBD is a disease entity of unknown origin, characterized by chronic inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract. IBD is increasing, especially among teenagers, and today 0.5-1% of the Nordic population is affected. IBD has severe consequences for many of the affected individuals, including life-long medication, hospitalizations, recurring sick-leaves, and surgical interventions. Diagnosis is difficult which often lead to a delay in diagnosis during which time the disease process is progressing.
