Epi-IBD 2011

The Epi-IBD 2011 cohort is a European prospective population-based inception cohort of patients diagnosed in 2011 with Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis or inflammatory bowel disease unclassified. The methodology and aims of the cohort are identical to the Epi-IBD 2010 cohort and the cohort serves as both a validation cohort of the Epi-IBD 2010 cohort as well as an independent cohort. A total of 14 centres from 8 Western and 5 Eastern European countries as well as one Australian centre are participating. Prospective follow-up is ongoing.
