Future Therapies

The genetic and molecular advances being made in CD research have given hope for a brighter future regarding the therapeutic options for CD in children. For example, mutations in the NOD2 gene on chromosome 16 have been associated with disease that is of early onset, ileal in location, and fibrostenosing and fistulizing in character (Brant et al, 2003; Cuthbert et al, 2002; Heilo et al, 2003; Lesage et al, 2003). As more gene mutations are discovered and linked to specific phenotypes, further stratification into therapeutic response categories may be possible. Ultimately, specific gene or protein replacement therapy may come to the forefront in the management of CD.
