Brief description Functional dyspepsia (FD) is an extremely common and costly problem with no cure. We and others have found that inflammation and immune activation play a role in FD but to date no studies have linked these findings with well known diseases markers including disordered sensory and motor function or psychiatric comorbidity. This study will explore the interrelationships between inflammatory and immune mechanisms, disease markers as well as the microbiome. This study could unravel the cause of FD.
