The purpose of this study was to search for new molecular markers for the diagnosis of ulcerative colitis (UC). The study included 65 patients (range from 22 to 35 years, 24 men and 41 women) with left-sided UC (Montréal classification), mild and moderate activity, infrequent (≤1/year) relapses according to the inclusion/exclusion criteria in the research. Criteria of the diagnosis of UC corresponded to ECCO Consensus. The duration of UC was 5.3 years. The control group included 30 healthy

Potentially new molecular markers of the development of UC were identified. (Int J Biomed. 2016; 6(1):70-73.).
