Ulcerative colitis is Ulcerative colitis.
Commonly known as UC.
Ulcerative colitis is a disease that causes erosions and ulcers on the mucous membrane of the large intestine, which is classified as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) along with Crohn’s disease. Symptoms of ulcerative colitis include bloody stools, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and fever.
Since the cause is unknown and the treatment method is uncertain, it has been designated as a target disease for the specific disease treatment research project, and research is still ongoing.
Ulcerative colitis generally gets better and worse. There is a treatment method currently under research, so I would like you to develop a method to completely cure it as one of the patients.
According to the data for 2002, the number of patients in Japan is about 77,000, and it is increasing by about 5,000 every year. Westernization of eating habits is also a factor, and the number of patients in the United States is said to be 1 million.
It’s an unexpectedly unknown disease, but I wondered if there were any friends who were fighting ulcerative colitis.
