Identify the genes that may be associated with the development of the disease.

An understanding of cells and cell behavior is a critically important component of disease diagnosis and treatment. But some diseases can be complex in nature, with a variety of factors and circumstances impacting their emergence and severity.
Effective disease analysis often requires an understanding that goes beyond isolated cell behavior. Genes, the environments in which cell processes operate, the impact of patient characteristics, and racial and ethnic variables all can have an important impact.
An understanding of the signals and symptoms of alterations in cellular processes is a critical step in the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases. For APRNs, this understanding can also help educate patients and guide them through their treatment plans.
In this Assignment, you examine a case study and analyze the symptoms presented. You identify cell, gene, and/or process elements that may be factors in the diagnosis, and you explain the implications to patient health.A 30-year-old male presents to the clinic with a chief complaint of abdominal pain and cramping with mucus in his stool worsening over the last few weeks. He denies any fever but has had an increase in fatigue. He reports a weight loss of 10 pounds in the last month. His family history reveals his brother was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. His labs reveal an elevated ESR, normal B12, and negative stool testing. He is sent for a plain abdominal x-ray which was normal.
The Assignment
Develop a 1- to 2-page case study analysis in which you:
Explain why you think the patient presented the symptoms described.
Identify the genes that may be associated with the development of the disease.
Explain the process of immunosuppression and the effect it has on body systems.
Things to remember:
APA format is required for all assignments
A minimum of three scholarly references is required for each assignment
Be sure that your references are no older than five years from the publication date
The writing center has APA templates that can be used and are very helpful
The objectives for this week are as follows:

Evaluate cellular processes and alterations within cellular processes
Analyze alterations in the immune system that result in disease processes
Identify racial/ethnic variables that may impact physiological functioning
Evaluate the impact of patient characteristics on disorders and altered physiology
