The variant alleles do not appear to determine the severity of ileal or ¢brostenosing disease, as judged by the time to ¢rst surgery (Brant et al 2003) or surgical recurrence (Ahmad et al 2002a). It is not yet clear how NOD2/CARD15 variants cause ileal or ¢brostenosing disease but the recent demonstration of NOD2/CARD15 expression by Paneth cells, which are located predominately in the terminal ileum provides a tantalizing clue. Association with familial disease? Several epidemiological studies have reported a higher incidence of ileal or ileocolonic disease in familial cases of CD (Colombel et al 1996, Cottone et al 1997, Halme et al 2002).
