Significant progress is being made toward diagnosis, evaluation and management of sensori-motor dysfunction, gut microbiota, gut-brain axis, nutrition, eosinophilic esophagitis. Read the most recent news here.

The discussion continues: How to raise the interest for neurogastroenterology?

From gut to brain and all facets between – the field of neurogastroenterology is truly fascinating whether you are medical doctor, a psychologist, dietician, pharmacologist or scientist. This video presents experts in medicine, basic research, pharmacology, nutrition and psychology at the Department of Molecular Clinical Medicine (Gothenburg).

NMO Editor in Chief search announcement

Graphic Abstract: The importance of meal-related pain across the globe 

Patients with disorders of gut-brain interaction (DGBI) report that food intake is associated with gastrointestinal symptoms. DGBI patients with meal-related symptoms may have more severe symptoms and poorer health overall, but this subgroup has not been well characterized. This study by Esther Colomier et al. set out to describe the global prevalence of meal-related abdominal pain and characterize this subgroup, using the data set originated from the population-based Rome Foundation Global Epidemiology Study.

Graphic Abstract: Delayed gastric emptying a predictor of mortality

Gastroparesis is defined as delayed gastric emptying associated with upper gastrointestinal symptoms. There is no systematic study that has addressed the impact of gastroparesis on mortality, based on gastric emptying measurement. Gourcerol et al. assessed whether delayed gastric emptying was predictive of mortality.

About ESNM

Founded in 1982, ESNM has become the leading Scientific Society in the field of Neurogastroenterology and Motility, deeply rooted across Europe and the world. Today 18 affiliated Societies and more than 3,400 members belong to the community. ESNM represents a large network of researchers and clinicians in various fields of medicine (basic, translational and clinical science).

Who we are

ESNM has a specific focus on the neural, endocrine, metabolic, immunological and microbiological regulation of gastrointestinal functions in health and in diseases. Our clinical focus includes functional bowel disorders (irritable bowel syndrome, functional dyspepsia, gastrooesophageal reflux disease, etc.), post-infectious bowel conditions, visceral pain syndromes (e.g. pancreatitis), and non-intestinal disorders with disturbances of intestinal functions.

The mission of ESNM is to expand knowledge and interest in the field, to educate the younger generation of physicians in basic and clinical aspects in the field, to promote scientific and educational events, to encourage basic and clinical research in the field  and to establish the standards for good clinical practice and patient care.
