By: Douglas A. Drossman, MD and William F. Norton, IFFGD
The 6th International Symposium on Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders was hosted by IFFGD on April 7-10, 2005. The biennial meeting was jointly sponsored by the Office of Continuing Medical Education, University of Wisconsin Medical School and the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD) in cooperation with the Functional Brain-Gut Research Group (FBG). The program, a culmination of two years planning was both stimulating and informative. In fact, our knowledge of the functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorders continues to evolve, and these symposia are in many ways a barometer of the many changes occurring in the field.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a chronic functional gastrointestinal disorder that affects millions of Americans. Care for patients with IBS often falls to the primary care physician. The pathophysiology of the disorder is still not entirely clear, and current treatment options are ineffective in many patients. At the 2000 American College of Gastroenterology's Annual Meeting, attendees convened for the presentations of three experts in the field, who outlined the latest research on the pathogenesis and treatment of this clinically challenging condition. This program was sponsored by the University of Kentucky through an unrestricted educational grant from Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation and Bristol-Myers Squibb Company.
