ient, more accessible and less costly to deliver," said Lackner.

"In the long term, we hope to show that a self-administered behavioral treatment program maintains its effectiveness over time, can enhance the quality of patient care, improve clinical outcomes and decrease the economic costs of one of the most prevalent and intractable GI disorders."

Lackner noted that the trial addresses a major priority of the NIDDK of improving the quality of care for IBS and the surgeon general's call to develop relatively simple behavioral approaches for enhancing the long-term health of chronically ill Americans.

UB co-investigators are Leonard Katz, M.D., Michael Sitrin, M.D., Susan Krasner, Ph.D., Changxing Ma, Ph.D., and Ann Marie Carosella, Ph.D. Rebecca Firth is project coordinator.

Lackner's early research leading to an NIH-funded pilot study and the current NIDDK award was supported by an Interdisciplinary Research and Creative Activities grant from the UB Office of the Vice President for Research. In addition, the UB School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and Office of the Vice President for Research provided bridge funding to sustain Lackner's research between the pilot study and the NIDDK study.
