Novel diagnostic tools for inflammatory bowel diseases
Nearly three million people in Europe alone suffer from inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), a group of conditions associated with inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract. Colonoscopy remains the gold standard method for the diagnosis and monitoring of these disorders. The EU-funded IBDIMAGE project aims to deliver a reagent toolbox that can measure in real time the activity of immune cells, which is an important indicator of IBD state. These reagents were developed during the ERC DYNAFLUORS project and constitute optimal imaging tools for a more accurate and personalised therapeutic approach for IBD patients. Moreover, they have the potential to lead to novel point-of-care diagnostics for IBD.
