Penman Gareth , Camp David

Background: Children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have reduced bone mineral density (BMD). The aim of this study was to investigate whether changes in patient’s cellular immune response correlate with reductions in BMD.Method: Children undergoing lower gastrointestinal endoscopy disease were approached with an aim of recruiting 15 patients newly diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease (CD) and 15 healthy controls.
