Researchers Detects New AI Method To Treat Crohn’s Disease

Although it may take the research team a lot of time to improve the accuracy of this method, they can now, at least, pinpoint the reason for Crohn’s disease, as well as help doctors diagnose it earlier.

Researchers have recently detected a new AI method that can help doctors get more knowledge about Crohn’s disease, as well as find out how to treat it. For those unknown, this disease is one of the major reasons that make patients inflamed in their digestive tract.

With the new method, doctors can predict who will be the next patients of Crohn.

The research was first published in a peer-reviewed open-access medical journal named Genome Medicine. In this research, the authors described how to check genetic signatures of Crohn’s disease in more than 100 people via artificial intelligence (AI).

The advantage of this new method is that they can detect genes relating to this disease, which can’t be previously found out. And therefore, they can predict who will be the next patients of Crohn.

According to Yana Bromberg, the main author of the study, now works as an Associate Professor of Rutgers University, US:

There are about 780,000 patients in the United States, who are suffering from Crohn’s disease.

They can now, at least, pinpoint the reason for Crohn’s disease.

Though symptoms may appear in any position in patients’ bodies, any part in the gastrointestinal tract can be chronically inflamed. In addition, patients can suffer from some issues concerning skin or joint pain. The US National Library of Medicine reports that, for children, they can even face growth problems.

The researchers gathered 111 people to analyze genetic variants. Among these 111 people, there are 64 ones who suffer from Crohn’s disease. They then leveraged AI techniques to determine patients’ genes that have functions affected more than those in healthy people, or vice versa.

Although it may take the research team a lot of time to improve the accuracy of this method, they can now, at least, pinpoint the reason for Crohn’s disease, as well as help doctors diagnose it earlier. Bromberg stated:
