Brief Summary:
The investigators intend to assess the role of several biomarkers in the prediction of relapse in IBD. Clinical, laboratory and endoscopic data will be gathered and a predictive score will be derived in order to assess the relapse risk at 1 year.

Condition or disease
Ulcerative Colitis Crohn's Disease Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) Vitamin D Deficiency

Detailed Description:

Patients with a confirmed diagnosis of IBD will be prospectively assessed on a yearly basis in order to assess relapse risk factors.

Disease activity will be assessed using the Mayo score for UC patients and CDAI for Crohn's disease and endoscopic activity will be assessed using the Mayo endoscopic subscore for UC patients and the Simple Endoscopic Score for Crohn's Disease for CD patients.

Serum and fecal biomarkers will be obtainted at each study visit (C-reactive protein, fecal calprotectin).

Data about current and past medication for IBD will also be gathered.

IBD patients
patients with ulcerative colitis or crohn's disease, in remission

    clinical relapse as assessed by conventional scores for activity in IBD - Mayo or CDAI

  2. Prevalence of NAFLD [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    to assess the prevalence of nonalcoholic liver disease in IBD patients

  3. prevalence of vitamin D deficiency [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    to assess vitamin D deficiency and osteopenia among IBD patients

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA
serum and fecal samples
