Better diagnose, prevention and treatment
More than 60 million Europeans suffer from anxiety and depression or fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. These conditions (comorbidities) are common in Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) which is a chronic health condition experienced mainly by women. IBS creates a burden on the patients' life. But the origin and mechanisms of IBS comorbidities remain unexplained, treatment is costly and not satisfactory. The EU-funded DISCOvERIE project will make an effort to explain the causative mechanisms of IBS comorbidities, identify them as a distinct clinical entity to enable a significant improvement in its treatment methods. The specific comorbid-IBS psychopathological knowledge will allow delivery of prognostic biomarkers and creation of guides and protocols for new special hospital units providing personalised care.
