    Media Backgrounder: Noteworthy Abstracts

    Can coffee drinking protect against alcoholic hepatitis? Are there gender differences in the presentation of celiac disease? Can a “medical home” keep IBD patients out of the Emergency Room? Is cannabis implicated in the development of acute pancreatitis? Can a “sponge on a string” detect Barrett’s esophagus, a premalignant condition? These are some of the intriguing clinical questions covered in ACG’s Noteworthy Abstracts, selected by the ACG Public Relations Committee, whose authors provide additional perspective on their findings and explain what the clinical science means for patients. Reporters can explore these Noteworthy Abstracts and author insights and connect with these researchers for media stories.
