Gastrointestinal Disease

60 to 70 million people in the U.S. are plagued by gastrointestinal (GI) diseases. While most GI disorders present equally in males and females, 65% of patients who report irritable bowel syndrome are female.

Gastrointestinal Cells

Any of the primary or accessory organs of the digestive system can be affected by GI disease. ATCC provides a variety of cell lines derived from normal and cancerous tissue to support GI research.

Hepatitis is the inflammation of the liver caused by toxins, autoimmune disease, or, more frequently, hepatitis viruses. Hepatitis can lead to a number of serious complications, including jaundice, anorexia, cirrhosis, liver failure, liver cancer, and death. Because the hepatitis viruses are difficult to culture, ATCC has synthetically prepared Hepatitis B virus DNA and Hepatitis C virus RNA to support hepatitis research.

Stomach Ulcers

Helicobacter pylori is a helical-shaped, ubiquitous bacterium that is present in approximately 50% of the global population. This bacterium is usually non-pathogenic, but is associated with inflammation of the stomach and stomach ulcers, as well as gastric cancers, colorectal polyps, and colorectal cancers.
