4 GI physicians in the news — September 2, 2016

Here are four gastroenterologists in the news this past week.

Fabio Cominelli, MD, PhD, received a $9.7 million five-year renewal grant from the NIH's National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases to continue studying the cause of Crohn’s disease.

At Digestive Disease Week 2016, Esmée J. Grobbee, MD, reported that multiple rounds of FIT detected more colorectal neoplasia per invited person than a one-time sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy, although the colonoscopy detected more advanced lesions, and Douglas J. Robertson, MD, presented a study he helped with that looked at FIT versus colonoscopy screening in 50,000 veterans.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's gastroenterologist Harold Bornstein, MD, told NBC News that he wrote the letter confirming Mr. Trump's health — which was released in December, and has been widely criticized as unscientific — in five minutes, while a limo sent by Mr. Trump waited outside Dr. Bornstein's office.
