Environmental Triggers

Environmental factors play a key role in inflammatory bowel diseases. It is a high priority to identify environmental factors impacting different disease stages and in different populations, develop biomarkers for such exposures, and generate evidence for modifying them to improve outcomes. Research gaps were identified in the following areas: (1) Epidemiology; (2) Exposomics and environmental measurement; (3) Biologic mechanisms; and (4) Interventions and Implementation.
