“Microglial Activation in Inflammatory Bowel Disease”
The purpose of this study is to monitor microglial activation in participants with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and investigate the relationship that exists between these patients and their risk of acquiring major depressive episodes (MDE). Patients with both IBD and MDE will be subsequently approached to participate in the study.
