Our local studies have included investigating the prevalence of obesity among patients with coeliac disease, the use of antacid therpay among patients being treated with anti-platelet drugs and the palliation of patients with oesophageal cancer . In collaboration with our colleagues at Warwick University we have continued laboratory studies investigating cellular mechanisms that underlie the links between obesity and inflammation.

New treatments that we can offer include the use of plastic stents to treat strictures (narrowings) secondary to inflammation.
