MedPage Today is carrying some 78 or so articles from presentations as Digestive Diseases Week 2009.
 
 
Stem cells for analrectal healing.
Novel treatment targets mucosal protection and healing rather than inflammation.
Water rather than air for bowel expansion during colonoscopy.
 
Just three I remember.

Thanks for the link! I think only the first 9 are from this year, the rest look like older news.

Yer welcome, NJMom. I could just KICK myself! I'm back in a darn good symptomatic remission or full remission so haven't been paying much attention. DDW 2009 is going on right now - May 30 to Jun 04 - AND it is in Chicago!!! Just a 5 hour drive for me! I had intended the next time it was this close to try to go myself and attend the most interesting presentations. Grrrrrrrr!
