Environmental Factors in IBD (EN)

Apostolopoulos, P.

A large number of environmental factors have been implicated in the pathogenesis and development of IBD. The epidemiological data are strong and are reproducible only for smoking and appendectomy, whereas the importance of other risk factors, such as breast-feeding, contraceptive and NSAIDs use and sugar intake are sharply divergent. Nevertheless, the mechanism for the effects of all these studied environmental factors remains unknown and the interplay between these exogenic factors and genetic subtypes of IBD is under investigation.
