Grand Rounds | It takes guts to get arthritis: The spondyloarthritis - Crohn’s Disease spectrum – a new paradigm?

Presentations by:

Associate Professor Simon Stebbings | Consultant Physician in Rheumatology

Associate Professor Michael Schultz | Head of Department at the Department of Medicine; Director of the Gut Health Network

Grand Rounds_identifierIn recent years, a new paradigm has developed in perceptions around ankylosing spondylitis (AS) such that many now see this disease as part of a spectrum of spondyloarthropathies that also includes Crohn’s disease. These two conditions not only demonstrate many common phenotypic characteristics, but also share a common genetic risk. Both may be triggered by dysbiosis within the intestinal microbiota. Gut inflammation is a frequent sub-clinical manifestation of AS and arthritis a common extra-intestinal manifestation of Crohn’s disease. This talk will take the form of two diametrically opposed, vituperative duelling specialists each with their own narrow and transparent agendas attempting to take sole ownership for this new dialectic.

A healthy, brown paper bag lunch will be provided.

The Grand Rounds is a monthly lecture series presenting cutting edge health research by leaders in their fields. Formerly known as Medical Forum, these seminars are designed for health professionals, academic and clinical researchers, and students across the Division of Health Sciences.
