Abstract

This is the third survey we perform in the kibbutz population of Israel. The previous 2 surveys were 10 years apart, in 1987 and 1997, demonstrating an increase in ulcerative colitis (UC) prevalence. The aim of the present study was to confirm the trend for increasing UC prevalence in Israel.
