Pulmonary function in patients with inflammatory bowel disease

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Pulmonary function has been assessed in 36 outpatients with inflammatory bowel disease. The carbon monoxide transfer factor was found to be significantly reduced in patients as compared with matched controls (P <0.01). The reason for this reduction is not clear but it is unlikely to be due to sulfasalazine (Salazosulphapyridine).
