Oct 5: Improved patient profiling and prediction of response to immune-modulating treatment in atopic dermatitis

Clinical and translational research by Daphne Bakker and colleagues at UMC Utrecht has provided new leads for improved patient profiling and a better prediction of response to treatment with dupilumab, a biologic immune-modulating drug for the treatment of moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis. On September 28, 2021 Daphne Bakker received her PhD cum laude at Utrecht University.

Microbiome compositional changes may precede the development of inflammatory bowel disease

The gut microbiome of people at increased risk of developing inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) displays IBD-like signatures. The presence of such IBD-like microbiome signatures might precede the onset of IBD. This was concluded from a study, recently published in Gastroenterology, investigating the intestinal microbiome in IBD-discordant and IBD-concordant twin pairs coordinated by UMC Utrecht in collaboration with the UMC Groningen, Netherlands Twin Register and a consortium of Dutch IBD centers.
