Ulcerative Colitis is one of the most common Inflammatory bowel diseases, characterized by inflamed and ulcerating GIT mucosa, effecting the surface as well as the deeper smooth muscle layers and nerve cells. The exact cause is unknown, however the inflammatory drive appears to be linked to the enteric neuroimmune-endocrine system and neuropeptide dysregulation. There is also appears to be a genetic link of immune dysregulation in response to abnormal microbiota.
