Jane M. Andrews and Gerald Holtmann
Abstract: Patients with IBD often believe that stress leads to increased disease activity and symptoms. The major problem with work in this area is that it relies on perception, which is notoriously difficult to quantify. However, a recent study provides evidence to support the possible effect of stress on IBD symptoms.
