Danish crohn colitis database, crohn colitis


Danish Gastroenterology Society (DGS) and Danish Paediatric Society (PDS) gathered in 2001 to form the National Danish Crohn and Colitis Database (DCCD).

By collecting national data on Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD), the aim of this database is to.

  • Improve the quality of the diagnosing and treatment of patients with either Crohn´s Disease (CD) or Ulcerative Colitis (UC).

  • Make national epidemiological follow-up on IBD patients, including incidence, prevalence, disease course, mortality, cancer, surgery and complications, medical treatment and morbidity.

  • Find indicators that improve the efficacy of treatment and prognosis in IBD, including potential new treatment options.
