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.

Scientific presentations at the meeting will focus on new challenges in patient care faced by gastroenterologists and advances in the prevention and treatment of digestive diseases. Highlights of topics to be addressed include:

  • Functional Dyspepsia. Two studies characterize people with this disorder. The first finds that a significant portion of Americans suffering from functional dyspepsia also have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The second addresses the first detailed study of this disease among African Americans.

  • 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;
