Inflammatory bowel diseases The challenging road to personalized medicine

Symposium 214, Oxford (Great Britain), March 2019

Oxford. The call for personalized medicine, currently heard louder and louder in almost all medical specialties, does not stop at inflammatory bowel diseases. Gastroenterologists hope that this will deliver highly effective and at the same time well-tolerated treatments for each patient. The road to this goal is challenging because it requires intensive basic research in the fields of pathophysiology, genetics and immunology.
