Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are reaching epidemic proportions in many parts of the world striking hardest at children and young adults.

These bowel diseases alone are costing the U.S. economy more than $2 billion dollars every year and are exacting an incalculable toll in human suffering causing chronic pain, malnutrition, debility, mutilation or malignancies as well as bowel disturbance complications.

These disease are still eluding attempts to find the cause and cure, which is why continued research is vital to the future treatment of such diseases.
