Guest: Christian Stone
Incidents of Clostridium difficile, or C.diff, are increasing in the US. Are patients with ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease more at risk for developing C. difficile infection than other patients? Is this due to an increased use of antibiotics in hospitals, or are other factors playing a role? Join host Dr. Jay Goldstein as he welcomes Dr. Christian Stone, associate professor of medicine at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, to discuss the recent trends of C. difficile infections among inflammatory bowel disease patients.
