Gut Inflammation (PUA)

Major Health Problem

Gut Inflammation

  • In 2004 Crohn’s Disease was the cause of 57,000 hospitalizations.
  • Around 200,000 new cases of IBD have surfaced since 2011.
  • The US spent $1.84 billion on Crohn’s and UC in 2004.
  • It is estimated that 70% of Crohn’s patients eventually need surgery.
  • IBS affects 25-45 million people in the US.

Take Away

Despite this growing problem, pharmaceutical manufacturers have been unable to develop medications that are safe and highly effective. Common gut inflammation treatments are a combination approach of immunosuppressants and medications for individual symptoms. These treatments have demonstrated adverse side effects, some severe.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): A cluster of chronic, inflammatory conditions that involves all or part of the digestive tract. IBD primarily includes ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.

Ulcerative Colitis (UC): An IBD that causes long-lasting inflammation and ulcers in the innermost lining of the large intestine and rectum.

Crohn’s Disease: An IBD that causes inflammation of the digestive tract. The inflammation can involve different areas of the digestive tract lining — the large intestine, small intestine or both.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): A common disorder that affects the large intestine. Unlike IBD, IBS does not cause changes in bowel tissue or increase the risk of colorectal cancer.
