Manchester leads new international study investigating Inflammatory Bowl Disease
Date:3/5/2013

The University of Manchester is leading a 12 million systems medicine research network to identify better treatments for Inflammatory Bowel Disease like Crohn's Disease.

Professor Werner Mller from the Faculty of Life Sciences is the Scientific Co-ordinator for the network called SysmedIBD. It includes universities and companies from the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Israel and New Zealand.

The aim of the five-year project is to better understand the disease, to identify risk genes, to investigate how diet can affect IBD, to develop new biomarkers and mathematical models that can predict the best treatment for a patient. This research network is based on the systems medicine approach in which individual patient specific details are used to build better mathematical models that in turn will provide the best possible treatment suggestions for the patients.

Professor Mller says: "This systems medicine approach will lead to a better personalized diagnosis and treatment of patients with inflammatory bowel disease. We will be targeting the central pathway of inflammation in the hope that by understanding the signalling processes we can eventually manipulate them."

He continues: "IBD affects every patient differently making it very difficult to develop effective treatments. Current treatments are very expensive and many patients develop resistance to the drugs. We hope that this intense programme of research will help us to overcome the current limitations of treatments for this incurable condition."

The term IBD is used mainly to describe two diseases, Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Both Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are chronic long-term diseases that involve inflammation of the gastrointestinal.

In the UK, IBD affects about one person in every 350. Around 100,000 people have ulcerative colitis, and 52,000 people have Crohn's disease in England.
