The purpose of this study is to compare the genes of African American children and adults who have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) with the genes of those who do not have IBD. Genes are pieces of hereditary material found in human cells. How an individual's genes cause intestinal inflammation in IBD is still being tested and not much is known about the association between genes and IBD in individuals with African ancestry. We hope to understand which genes cause IBD and if certain genes can help doctors personalize treatment for patients with IBD. For more information please contact ibdresearch@email.chop.edu.
