Summary of "Viewpoint: Toward the Genetic Architecture of Disease Severity in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases."

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is characterized by uneven disease courses with various clinical outcomes. A few prognostic markers of disease severity may help stratify patients and identify those who will benefit the most from early aggressive treatment. The concept of disease severity remains too broad and vague, mainly because the definition must embrace several disease mechanisms, mainly inflammation and fibrosis, with various rates of disease progression. The magnitude of inflammation is an obvious key driver of disease severity in IBD that ultimately influence disease behavior. Advances in the genetics underlying disease severity are currently emerging, but attempts to overlap the genetics of disease susceptibility and severity have until now been unsatisfactory, suggesting that the genetic architecture of disease severity may be distinct from the genetics of disease susceptibility. In this review, we report on the current knowledge on disease severity and on the main research venues to decipher the genetic architecture of disease severity.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An anti-inflammatory agent, structurally related to the SALICYLATES, which is active in INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE. It is considered to be the active moiety of SULPHASALAZINE. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed)

A species of Faecalbacterium, previously classified in the FUSOBACTERIUM genus, that is a major constituent of the GUT MICROBIOTA in healthy humans. It has anti-inflammatory activity and reduced numbers of this species occur in patients with INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASES such as CROHN DISEASE.

A severity of disease classification system designed to measure the severity of disease for patients aged 15 and over admitted to intensive care units.

Chronic, non-specific inflammation of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Etiology may be genetic or environmental. This term includes CROHN DISEASE and ULCERATIVE COLITIS.

A member of the S-100 protein family that is present at high levels in the blood and interstitial fluid in several infectious, inflammatory, and malignant disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and cystic fibrosis. It is a complex of a light chain (CALGRANULIN A) and a heavy chain (CALGRANULIN B). L1 binds calcium through an EF-hand motif, and has been shown to possess antimicrobial activity.
