Differentiating Crohn’s Disease from Ulcerative Colitis - New Factors

Anna Kasperczuk , Agnieszka Dardzińska-Głębocka


The characteristics of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are often ambiguous. The information obtained may deepen the cur-rent state of knowledge about ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. For this reason, finding the optimal classifier to support further analysis of medical data is a factor determining the correct allocation of a patient to a given disease entity. The data were subjected to selection methods to find symptoms differing in the two analyzed groups. Then, the extracted variables were introduced into the classifier in order to build the classification model. Factors that were significantly different between patients with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis were found. The built-in system with very high efficiency is able to predict to which group of diseases belongs new, undiagnosed patient (sensitivity 100%, specificity 98.48%). The constructed model can be an excellent method of assisting physicians in making decisions. Importantly, the system should be checked in a variety of balanced research groups to confirm its effectiveness.
