About the Project

Selection of the optimal treatment strategy within Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) can be complex and difficult. IBD markedly affects the life quality of the patients and their families, and represents a significant burden on society due to, amongst others, lost educational opportunities, absenteeism, and health care expenses. The disease phenotype varies enormously between patients. Hence, there is a need for reliable biological markers with diagnostic and prognostic value, with vast potential to improve disease management and select the most appropriate drug at a specific time point.

This phd-study aims to develop biomarkers for discriminating between various disease trajectories to optimize diagnosis and clinical management of IBD.Data from Danish registry archives will be used to distinguish between specific IBD disease trajectories. Such data will then form the basis for selected biological material for proteomics and (pharmaco)-genomics investigations in the search for biological biomarkers for clinical use. In the end, this will lead the way for Personalized Medicine. Data will be based on material collected at various time points in relation to the disease course (before diagnosis, drug treatment, etc.).The outcome of the study will contribute to improve IBD health care, qualify of life and reduce economic resources. Moreover, the results will be part of the fundament for development and implementation of Personal Medicine.
