IBD biobanks

Biobanks for IBD tissues

Amsterdam UMC has several biobanks for IBD tissues.



Amsterdam UMC has several biobanks for IBD tissues. The Future IBD biobank collects serial blood, stool urine and tissue samples from IBD patients undergoing different treatments for their IBD. The eventual goal is to establish predictive models that would allow to identify which patients would ideally receive which treatment and to shorten ‘time to remission’.
