This study addresses whether existing transcriptional profile scan improve and support the current definition of UC in remission apart from the today existing endoscopic, histological and laboratory scoring systems. In this MEDtalk Ruth Paulssen tells og presents that a gut–brain communication network is involved during remission beside the partial restoration of immunological functions and recovery of local homeostasis in the epithelial mucus layer and lamina propria.
