Zebra fishes show the way to drugs against Inflammatory bowel disease, IBD

IBD is a disease that doesn't have a cure yet. Among the symptoms are diarrhea, fever, chronic pain in the abdomen.

At times, the intestines become swollen and sore, impairing the ability to absorb nutrients and fluids. There are different conditions; Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease are the most common conditions.

At the same time as Eduardo Villablanca, Karolinska Institutet tries to understand the exact reason why some people get IBD while others don’t, he also wants to develop medications for those who are already afflicted.
