Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
Donor Sample Collection

IBD-BIOME is Artizan’s world-class biobanking program that collected over 1,500 proprietary samples and clinical data from nearly 300 IBD patients and 200 healthy controls.

Artizan assembled IBD-BIOME with the help of its generous donors and Dr. Hans Herfarth, Principal Investigator from the UNC School of Medicine – Multidisciplinary Center for IBD and six additional U.S. sites. Insights from these longitudinal samples and clinical data from a cohort of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis patients improves the understanding of the mechanism of the disease and aids the development of potential treatments.
