The study aims to examine environmental risk factors for inflammatory bowel disease.

You are eligible to participate in this study if you are at least 18 years of age or older and have Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis or indeterminate colitis. You are also eligible to participate in this study if you do not have these conditions but are relatives or friends of study participants who have these conditions.
The online questionnaire takes about an hour to complete.
There are no direct benefits from participation in the study. However, the study may help provide a better understanding of the environmental risk factors for inflammatory bowel disease. The results of this study might help in creating more efficient diagnostic methods, prognostic features and interventions in inflammatory bowel disease patients.
You will not be compensated for your participation in this research study.
