Report on the 5th International Symposium on Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders

Our understanding of the functional GI disorders is changing, including the mechanisms that contribute to symptom generation, methods of assessing and diagnosing the disorders, and approaches to treatment. As indicated by data presented across multiple disciplines at this symposium - basic, mechanistic, physiological, clinical, and epidemiological - the clinical expression of the functional GI disorders includes a composite of several physiological components. In effect, there is no one factor that appears to be involved in the development of the disorders (etiology), nor is there one specific treatment.
