BMJ Open Gastroenterology Blog
The BMJ Open Gastroenterology journal has launched a concise, monthly, educational blog summarising several key studies from the journal and the wider literature. The free-to-access and bite-sized education blog, with links to the free-to-access articles, can be found by following the links below.
In the 2nd BMJ Open Gastroenterology monthly blog, we discuss the potential for clinical inertia in gastroenterologists towards coeliac disease, the benefits and diagnostic yield of endoscopic ultrasound in recurrent pancreatitis, and what defines long-term PPI use. Additionally, we summarise and highlight the highly topical publication in Gut on the international consensus on SARS-CoV-2 vaccination in patients with IBD.
In this first edition, Dr James Ashton discusses the effect of lockdown on IBD patients, the role of transcriptomic analysis in coeliac disease, and the rise of NAFLD in the developing world. He also highlights a recent study, published in Gut, on anti-TNF induction therapy in paediatric Crohn’s disease.
