Summary

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a poorly understood, multifactorial, heterogeneous disorder of bowel dysfunction. Current evidence indicates that our gut is under the control of its own "mini-brain". A dysfunctional interaction of this mini-brain with the our big brain in the head, hormones circulating in the blood, and our immune-system leads to Irritable Bowel Syndrome ( IBS ), which may manifest itself in a variety of forms. A multidisciplinary approach to treatment is the most beneficial. Drugs specifically targeted at specific forms of IBS should be available in the not too distant future.
