New research on GI health unveiled at American College of Gastroenterology's 2011 Meeting
Date:10/31/2011

Washington, DC -- Many of the world's preeminent gastroenterologists have convened this week for the American College of Gastroenterology's (ACG) 76th Annual Scientific Meeting at the Gaylord National Hotel and Conference Center at the National Harbor to review the latest scientific advances in gastrointestinal research, treatment of digestive diseases and clinical practice management.

Groundbreaking treatments such as fecal microbiota transplantation for serious gastrointestinal conditions like antibiotic-associated diarrhea and inflammatory bowel disease; innovative prevention strategies for a host of GI-related health conditions including hepatitis C and colorectal cancer; new insights on the relationship between adult irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and childhood trauma and the impact lifestyle factors like smoking and alcohol consumption have on digestive health, are among the highlights of this year's scientific presentations.

A press kit with highlights of important new science presented at the meeting is available online at the ACG Web site http://www.acg.gi.org/media/press.asp

Highlights from this year's ACG Scientific Meeting include:

Antibiotics May Not Be Only Cause of Community-Acquired C. difficile Infection; Patient's Place of Residence May Allow for "On-Admission" Prediction Model of Disease Severity

Antibiotics may not be the only risk factor associated with communityacquired Clostridium difficile infection, indicating that other undefined causes of the potentially life-threatening infection may exist and could also predict whether or not a patient will require hospitalization, according to researchers from the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine in Rochester, MN.
