New scientific advances in gastroenterology presented at college's 68th annual meeting

WASHINGTON, DC (October 13, 2003) Several of the world's preeminent gastroenterologists will gather from October 10 October 15 for the American College of Gastroenterology's (ACG) 68th Annual Scientific Meeting at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland. The agenda includes the latest advances in gastrointestinal research, treatment of digestive diseases and clinical practice management.

  • Diet and GI Disease. Two studies explore the affect of diet (particularly fat and fructose consumption) on dyspepsia and IBS.

  • Colorectal Cancer. Several studies at the Meeting explore colon cancer:
    • The link between alcohol consumption and colorectal cancer;
