Gastroenterology is a branch of internal medicine. It deals with dysfunctions and diseases of the digestive system. In the narrower sense, this includes only the stomach and intestine, but in the broadest sense also other structures such as esophagus, liver, gallbladder and pancreas. Depending on their needs, gastroenterologists work with other specialists, such as colleagues in surgery, oncology or radiology.
Dysfunctions of the digestive tract (such as irritable stomach, irritable bowel)
Cancers of the digestive tract (such as stomach cancer, colon cancer)
To diagnose such diseases, the gastroenterologist uses different methods of examination. These include above all the ultrasound examination of the abdominal cavity and endoscopic procedures such as gastroscopy (gastroscopy), colonoscopy (colonoscopy) and laparoscopy (laparoscopy). During an endoscopy, smaller procedures can be performed if required. For example, the gastroenterologist can take tissue samples (biopsy), remove polyps or dilate narrowed bile ducts.
Various therapeutic approaches are available to the gastroenterologist. So he can treat chronic liver disease with drugs and remove growths of the intestinal wall (polyps) during a colonoscopy. Also bile duct stones can be removed and narrowed bile ducts can be extended. Gastroenterologists work with surgeons, radiologists and oncologists to treat gastrointestinal diseases.

German researchers have apparently taken a step forward in the search for the development of ulcerative colitis. Physicians from the universities of Erlangen-Nuremberg and Marburg see a new approach in the protein GATA3, which could enable the treatment of ulcerative colitis. Nearly 170,000 people in Germany suffer from the inflammable bowel disease, which was previously incurable. The chronic inflammatory bowel disease ulcerative colitis is not curable so far. German researchers are now confident that they have at least found a therapeutic approach.
So far, the exact causes of ulcerative colitis have not been clarified - and a causative treatment of inflammatory bowel disease so that not possible. That could possibly change soon. Physicians from Erlangen, Nuremberg and Marburg have recently shown that certain cells of the immune system of people with ulcerative colitis increasingly produce the transcription factor GATA3. This protein complex is involved in the inflammatory reactions that accompany the disease. The researchers were also able to prevent the defense cells from the increased secretion of GATA3 and so reduce the inflammatory response itself. This was achieved by artificial DNA building blocks with enzyme-like function, so-called DNAzyme.
With this discovery, there is the possibility for a new therapeutic approach against ulcerative colitis, writes the first author of the studio, Vanessa Popp, in the journal Gastroenterology. According to study leader Prof. MD Markus Neurath, the scientists in their study were able to significantly improve both the acute course and the prevention of disease relapses.
