If anybody's interested in reading technical and state-of-the-state medical articles on IBD, the Nov. 19 issue of New England Journal of Medicine has 3 related articles:
Mechanisms of Disease: Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Mutations Affecting the Interleukin-10 Receptor
Interleukin-10 in Inflammatory Bowel Diseasecontent.nejm.org/cgi/collection/gastroenterology
I'm currently working my way through the first article, which is 11 pages, has nice diagrams/tables, and appears to be a very good all-around descript
ion of IBD and current understanding. The second article is pretty long too. My local library carries the NEJM, so I just photocopied the articles.
