  Purpose

The investigators are doing the research to discover genes that cause Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) specifically in the African American population. Who May Join This Study? Blacks / African Americans with or without Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis.

If you agree to join the study, the investigators ask that you give us information about your health. The investigators will also ask you to give us a blood sample so that they may discover the genes that cause IBD. The blood sample may be collected at Johns Hopkins or any local facility convenient to you.

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA

Blood samples from each participant will be sent to the NIDDK repository for DNA purification, sample distribution, establishment of cell lines. Serum samples will be sent to Fisher Bioservices Repository.

All additional samples will be processed and stored at Dr. Brant's Johns Hopkins IBD Genetics Laboratory with isolated lymphocytes and cell cultures made and stored at the Johns Hopkins Cell Center with use restricted to the PI (Dr. Brant).


Estimated Enrollment: 2400
Study Start Date: June 2003
Groups/Cohorts
