Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) causes significant pain and discomfort to sufferers and severely affects quality of life. Research on IBD focusing on the individual contributing factors has failed to provide truly effective treatment options, and the broader picture has been somewhat neglected. Dr Claudio Fiocchi of the Lerner College of Medicine, Cleveland Clinic, USA, proposes an integrated, holistic approach which holds significant promise for improving both our understanding and treatment of IBD.
