Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue concerns the recent therapeutic developments in the management of Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. There is a particular focus on the role of the intestinal microbiome in the development of Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, as well as the therapeutic place of new probiotics in the management of these conditions. The Special Issue also reflects on the place of newer biologic therapies and JAK inhibitors in the control of inflammatory process. We will also welcome studies focusing on stem cell therapy and other new drugs targeting the inflammatory process. All studies and reviews relating to the mechanisms and therapeutic strategies of Crohn's Disease are welcome.
