Strains of mice in which certain GENES of their GENOMES have been disrupted, or "knocked-out". To produce knockouts, using RECOMBINANT DNA technology, the normal DNA sequence of the gene being studied is altered to prevent synthesis of a normal gene product. Cloned cells in which this DNA alteration is successful are then injected into mouse EMBRYOS to produce chimeric mice. The chimeric mice are then bred to yield a strain in which all the cells of the mouse contain the disrupted gene. Knockout mice are used as EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS for diseases (DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL) and to clarify the functions of the genes.

Meta-analysis: budesonide treatment for collagenous colitis. (1/35)

BACKGROUND: Collagenous colitis is typified by chronic watery diarrhoea and characteristic histological alterations of the colonic mucosa without endoscopic abnormalities. Budesonide, a corticosteroid with high first-pass metabolism has been examined in collagenous colitis, but studies to date have had small numbers, and relatively low statistical power. AIM: A meta-analysis of existing published trials was undertaken to evaluate the treatment effect of budesonide in collagenous colitis. METHODS: All pertinent literature sources were searched for published reports in English of budesonide use in collagenous colitis. MEDLINE and EMBASE databases were reviewed, as well as bibliographies from published articles and available abstracts from relevant meetings. Literature that met prespecified criteria was selected for the meta-analysis. RESULTS: Three trials were included in the meta-analysis. Budesonide significantly decreased stool frequency (budesonide vs. placebo OR: 20.1, 95% CI: 7.0-57.5, P < 0.0001). In general, budesonide treatment was well-tolerated. CONCLUSIONS: Budesonide is clinically effective short-term in collagenous colitis, and seems to be relatively well-tolerated. Clinicians can consider this drug as a reasonable option for patients with this disorder.  (+info)

Activation of nuclear factor kappaB in colonic mucosa from patients with collagenous and ulcerative colitis. (2/35)

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) is greatly upregulated in the colonic mucosa of patients with collagenous and ulcerative colitis. As the transcription factor nuclear factor kappaB (NFkappaB) is a major inducer of iNOS gene expression, we compared activation and transcriptional activity of NFkappaB in colonic mucosal biopsies from these patients. PATIENTS: Eight patients with collagenous colitis, six with relapsing ulcerative colitis, and eight with uninflamed bowel were studied. METHODS: NFkappaB DNA binding activity was assessed by electrophoretic mobility shift assay and inhibitor of NFkappaB (IkappaB) kinase (IKK) activity by immunocomplex kinase assay. In vivo recruitment of NFkappaB to the iNOS promoter was determined by chromatin immunoprecipitation analysis and transcriptional activity by NFkappaB gene expression profiling arrays. Cells showing NFkappaB activation were identified by immunohistochemistry. RESULTS: In collagenous and ulcerative colitis, as opposed to uninflamed bowel, IKKbeta activity and strong NFkappaB DNA binding gave rise to activation of identical NFkappaB subunits and recruitment of transcriptionally active p65 to the iNOS promoter. In collagenous colitis, activated NFkappaB was observed only in epithelial cells while up to 10% of lamina propria macrophages showed activation in ulcerative colitis. CONCLUSIONS: In collagenous and ulcerative colitis, colonic mucosal NFkappaB is activated and recruited to the iNOS promoter in vivo via an IKKbeta mediated pathway. As collagenous colitis is not associated with tissue injury, these data challenge the prevailing view that activation of NFkappaB per se mediates tissue injury. Our results suggest that downstream inflammatory reactions leading to tissue damage originate in lamina propria immune cells, as increased NFkappaB activity in collagenous colitis was localised solely in epithelial cells, but present also in macrophages in ulcerative colitis.  (+info)

Mechanism of diarrhea in microscopic colitis. (3/35)

AIM: To search the pathophysiological mechanism of diarrhea based on daily stool weights, fecal electrolytes, osmotic gap and pH. METHODS: Seventy-six patients were included: 51 with microscopic colitis (MC) (40 with lymphocytic colitis (LC); 11 with collagenous colitis (CC)); 7 with MC without diarrhea and 18 as a control group (CG). They collected stool for 3 d. Sodium and potassium concentration were determined by flame photometry and chloride concentration by titration method of Schales. Fecal osmotic gap was calculated from the difference of osmolarity of fecal fluid and double sum of sodium and potassium concentration. RESULTS: Fecal fluid sodium concentration was significantly increased in LC 58.11+/-5.38 mmol/L (P<0.01) and CC 54.14+/-8.42 mmol/L (P<0.05) than in CG 34.28+/-2.98 mmol/L. Potassium concentration in LC 74.65+/-5.29 mmol/L (P<0.01) and CC 75.53+/-8.78 mmol/L (P<0.05) was significantly less compared to CG 92.67+/-2.99 mmol/L. Chloride concentration in CC 36.07+/-7.29 mmol/L was significantly higher than in CG 24.11+/-2.05 mmol/L (P<0.05). Forty-four (86.7%) patients had a secretory diarrhea compared to fecal osmotic gap. Seven (13.3%) patients had osmotic diarrhea. CONCLUSION: Diarrhea in MC mostly belongs to the secretory type. The major pathophysiological mechanism in LC could be explained by a decrease of active sodium absorption. In CC, decreased Cl/HCO3 exchange rate and increased chloride secretion are coexistent pathways.  (+info)

Long-term follow-up of collagenous colitis after induction of clinical remission with budesonide. (4/35)

BACKGROUND: Budesonide (Entocort) is effective for the treatment of collagenous colitis. AIM: To assess the long-term outcome of patients after induction of clinical remission by budesonide treatment. METHODS: Fifty-one patients with chronic diarrhoea and histologically proven collagenous colitis were enrolled in randomized, placebo-controlled crossover trial using budesonide 9 mg daily for 6 weeks. Patients in clinical remission after either initial or crossover budesonide treatment were followed using standardized questionnaires. Clinical relapse was defined as five or more loose stools/day for at least 4 consecutive days. RESULTS: A total of 33 patients achieved clinical remission (85% per-protocol). During a median follow-up of 16 months, clinical relapse occurred in 20 patients (61%), after a median time of 2 weeks (range: 1-104, mean: 10 weeks). Patient age <60 years was identified as a significant risk factor for clinical relapse (OR = 7.4, P = 0.048). Budesonide was used for treatment of clinical relapse in 80% of patients achieving clinical response in all of them. CONCLUSIONS: Budesonide is effective in the treatment of collagenous colitis. Clinical relapses may occur in a considerable number of patients, particularly in those <60 years. Treatment of clinical relapse with budesonide appears to be an effective option.  (+info)

Role of matrix metalloproteinases in intestinal inflammation. (5/35)

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and their endogenous inhibitors, tissue inhibitors of MMPs (TIMPs), are produced in the gastrointestinal tract by several structural cells. The balance between MMPs and TIMPs is essential for many physiological processes in the gut. However, imbalance between MMPs and TIMPs plays an important role in the pathophysiology of diverse intestinal inflammatory conditions. We reviewed the role of the MMP/TIMP system in the pathogenesis of intestinal inflammatory diseases and pharmacologic perspectives for the use of compounds that restore the MMP/TIMP balance.  (+info)

Resolution of paraneoplastic collagenous enterocolitis after resection of colon cancer. (6/35)

A 52-year-old woman developed severe watery diarrhea, weight loss, anemia and hypoalbuminemia. A localized colon cancer was detected. Subsequently, extensive collagenous mucosal involvement of the small and large intestine was discovered. After resection of the colon cancer, her symptoms resolved. In addition, resolution of the inflammatory process occurred, including the subepithelial collagen deposits. Despite extensive small and large intestinal involvement, both clinical and histological resolution of collagenous inflammatory disease was evident. Collagenous enterocolitis is an inflammatory process that may represent a distinctive and reversible paraneoplastic phenomenon.  (+info)

Microscopic colitis demonstrates a T helper cell type 1 mucosal cytokine profile. (7/35)

BACKGROUND: Microscopic colitis (MC) is an inflammatory disorder of unknown aetiology. AIM: To characterise the mucosal cytokine profile of MC, with a view to understanding its potential pathogenic mechanisms. METHODS: Cytokine profiles of mucosal biopse specimens taken at flexible sigmoidoscopy from 18 patients (8 with lymphocytic colitis and 10 with collagenous colitis) were analysed using real-time reverse transcriptase-PCR, in comparison with those from 13 aged-matched controls with diarrhoea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome. Biopsy specimens from six patients with histologically documented remission were available for comparative analysis. Biopsy specimens were also taken to determine the cellular expression of cytokine and cytokine-related proteins using immunohistochemistry. RESULTS: Mucosal mRNA levels were 100 times greater for interferon (IFN)gamma and interleukin (IL) 15, 60 times greater for tumour necrosis factor alpha, and 35 times greater for inducible nitric oxide synthase in MC compared with controls. Apart from a trend for increased levels of IL10, levels of other T helper cell type 2 (T(H)2) cytokines including IL2 and IL4 were too low to be accurately quantified. Mucosal IFNgamma mRNA levels correlated with the degree of diarrhoea, and returned to normal in remission. The immunohistochemical expression of cell junction proteins E-cadherin and ZO-1 was reduced in active disease. No differences were noted between lymphocytic and collagenous colitis for any of the above parameters. CONCLUSIONS: MC demonstrates a T(H)1 mucosal cytokine profile with IFNgamma as the predominantly upregulated cytokine, with concurrent induction of nitric oxide synthase and down regulation of IFNgamma-related cell junction proteins. This pattern is similar to that in coeliac disease and suggests that it might represent a response to a luminal antigen.  (+info)

Budesonide treatment is associated with increased bile acid absorption in collagenous colitis. (8/35)

BACKGROUND: Bile acid malabsorption is frequent in collagenous colitis and harmful bile acids may play a pathophysiological role. Glucocorticoids increase ileal bile acid transport. Budesonide have its main effect in the terminal ileum. AIMS: To evaluate whether the symptomatic effect of budesonide is linked to increased uptake of bile acids. METHODS: Patients with collagenous colitis were treated with budesonide 9 mg daily for 12 weeks. Prior to and after 8 weeks of treatment, the (75)SeHCAT test, an indirect test for the active uptake of bile acid-s, measurements of serum 7alpha-hydroxy-4-cholesten-3-one, an indicator of hepatic bile acid synthesis, and registration of symptoms were performed. RESULTS: The median (75)SeHCAT retention increased from 18% to 35% (P < 0.001, n = 25) approaching the values of healthy controls (38%). The 7alpha-hydroxy-4-cholesten-3-one values decreased significantly among those with initially high synthesis (from 36 to 23 ng/mL, P = 0.04, n = 9); however, for the whole group the values were not altered (19 ng/mL vs. 13 ng/mL, P = 0.23, N.S., n = 19). CONCLUSION: The normalization of the (75)SeHCAT test and the reduction of bile acid synthesis in patients with initially high synthetic rate, suggests that the effect of budesonide in collagenous colitis may be in part due to decreased bile acid load on the colon.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Metachronous occurrence of collagenous colitis and ulcerative colitis. AU - Giardiello, Francis M. AU - Jackson, F. W.. AU - Lazenby, A. J.. PY - 1991. Y1 - 1991. N2 - Collagenous colitis and ulcerative colitis are distinct disorders. A 67 year old woman with clinical and histological evidence of collagenous colitis had an abrupt symptomatic exacerbation while taking anti-inflammatory treatment with sulphasalazine and prednisone. Repeat colorectal endoscopy showed active mucosal inflammation and colonic biopsy specimens were consistent with active ulcerative colitis. After bowel rest, total parenteral nutrition, intensification of the anti-inflammatory regimen, and withdrawal of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (which she had taken continuously for osteoarthritis) diarrhoea abated. Colorectal biopsy specimens obtained when the patients symptoms had improved showed inactive ulcerative colitis with no evidence of collagenous colitis. This may be the first case to be reported ...
Two hypotheses have been proposed to explain the pathogenesis and cause of the increased subepithelial collagen deposition that occurs in patients with collagenous colitis, a rare disease of unknown cause. One hypothesis considers an inflammatory origin, and the other, a local abnormality of collagen synthesis. An analysis of clinical, endoscopic, and histologic findings from one of our patients and from previously published cases suggests that collagenous colitis is a form of inflammatory bowel disease characterized by localization of the initial injury to the superficial subepithelial zone and with subsequent fibrosis in that area. The data show a spectrum of clinical and histologic changes that represent different stages in the evolution of the inflammatory process. ...
Objective: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of long-term budesonide therapy for maintenance of clinical remission in patients with collagenous colitis.. Design: Randomised, placebo-controlled study with a 24-week, blinded follow-up period without any treatment.. Setting: Three gastroenterology clinics in Denmark.. Patients: Forty-two patients with histologically-confirmed collagenous colitis and diarrhoea (,3 stools/day).. Interventions: Patients in clinical remission after 6 weeks open-label therapy with oral budesonide (Entocort CIR capsules, 9 mg/day) received 24 weeks double-blind maintenance therapy with budesonide 6 mg/day or placebo. Thereafter, patients entered the 24-week, blinded follow-up period.. Main outcome measure: Proportion of patients in clinical remission (≤3 stools/day) at the end of maintenance therapy..

Collagenous gastritis is an extremely rare disorder and little is known about its aetiopathogenesis and natural history. The three previous reports described this condition (a) in isolation,1(b) with synchronous lymphocytic colitis,2 and (c) with synchronous collagenous colitis and collagenous duodenitis.3 This is the first report of a case presenting initially with collagenous gastritis and subsequently with features of collagenous colitis.. The clinical, endoscopic, and histological features in our case are similar to those described by Colletti and Trainer.1 Both patients were young and presented with epigastric pain and gastrointestinal bleeding. Our patient, however, presented with chronic anaemia which did not improve with H2 receptor blockers, antihelminthic treatment, and iron supplements, suggesting chronic blood loss. This was unlike the acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding seen in the patient described by Colletti and Trainer. Our endoscopic finding of gastric nodularity had been ...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: It is not known whether lymphocytic colitis and collagenous colitis represent different clinical entities or constitute part of a spectrum of disease. METHODS: Detailed clinical features and histological findings were compared in a large series of patients with confirmed lymphocytic and collagenous colitis. RESULTS: Histological diagnosis was confirmed in 96 patients with collagenous colitis and 80 with lymphocytic colitis. Twenty eight per cent of patients with collagenous colitis and 26% of patients with lymphocytic colitis had overlapping but less pronounced histological features. Both groups were equal in terms of age, use of aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, associated autoimmune conditions, arthritis, diarrhoea, ...
MC is an inflammatory condition of the large bowel that is associated with chronic, nonbloody diarrhea with a grossly normal-appearing colonoscopy, and it is diagnosed by tissue biopsy. MC can be further classified into 2 distinct classes: LC and collagenous colitis (CC). The histopathological criteria for CC include a thickened subepithelial collagen layer of at least 10 µm, inflammation in the lamina propria with lymphocytes and plasma cells, and epithelial damage. The criteria for LC is a density of at least 20 intraepithelial lymphocytes per 100 surface epithelial cells, epithelial damage, and a subepithelial collagen layer of less than 10 µm.4 While the etiology remains obscure, the most common theories suggest that MC results from immune system activation in the colonic mucosa after exposure to antigenic factors, including toxins, infections, and medications. Commonly reported associations include autoimmune-based disorders such as celiac disease, thyroid disease, and rheumatoid ...
Mucosal atrophy as a potential cause of impaired colonic compliance has not yet been described as a complication in Collagenous Colitis (CC). We present a 51-year-old female patient with a 20-year history of diarrhea and diagnosed with CC ten years prior to her presentation. We reviewed reports from three colonoscopies performed after the diagnosis. Overall 12 biopsies obtained in the last two colonoscopies were re-analyzed by two pathologists blinded to the aim of the study. Besides the typical histological findings of CC, the endoscopic appearance was normal, and no histological signs of atrophy were found during the first colonoscopy. Surprisingly, the second and third colonoscopy revealed a region of advanced segmental mucosal atrophy in the cecum with the mucosal height normalizing toward the transverse colon. This pattern of atrophy was inversely related to the pattern of sub-epithelial collagen deposition, which increased toward the rectum. If no chance occurrence, our observation supports the

Collagenous colitis is a type of IBD where a thick band of collagen develops under the lining of the colon. Learn about the treatment, including diet.
Microscopic colitis Evidence for the indication microscopic (collagenous colitis and lymphocytic colitis) is presented below.. Collagenous colitis:. Two randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled induction studies of six and eight weeks duration investigated the clinical and histological effect of Entocort 9 mg/day in the treatment of collagenous colitis. In the first study, 23 patients were randomised to Entocort 9 mg/day and 22 patients to placebo for 6 weeks. The rate of clinical remission was significantly higher (p,0.001) in the Entocort group than in the placebo group 86.9% vs. 13.6%. Histologic improvement was observed in 14 patients of the Entocort group (60.9%) and in one patient of the placebo group (4.5%; p,0.001). In the second study, 10 patients were randomised to Entocort for 8 weeks (9 mg/day 4 weeks, 6 mg/day 2 weeks, and 3 mg/day 2 weeks) and ten to placebo. All 10 patients receiving Entocort had a clinical response compared with two in the placebo group (p,0.001).. Two ...
Answer: Collagenous colitis. Histologic Description: While the area of perforation demonstrated prominent granulation tissue, the surrounding bowel demonstrates increased lamia propria plasma cells, along with increased intraepithelial lymphocytes with epithelial damage. Close inspection reveals that the subepithelial basement membrane is thickened, and has an irregular border with the underlying lamina propria. These are the typical features of collagenous colitis.. Differential Diagnosis: Ulcerative colitis would be associated with more prominent crypt distortion and frequently active colitis. Infectious colitis would typically have an active colitis pattern, and would lack the prominent intraepithelial lymphocytes of the current case along with thickened basement membrane. Lymphocytic colitis is very similar to collagenous colitis in that both are microscopic findings seen in patients with watery diarrhea whose colonoscopies are grossly normal, but it is distinguished by the absence of a ...
Answer: A. Histologic Description: The bowel wall is markedly thickened with prominent submucosal edema. There are patchy areas of mucosal necrosis over which there is a luminal pseudomembrane composed of fibrin, mucus, neutrophils, and dead intestinal epithelial cells. There is fibrin in the lamina propria. Elsewhere, the bowel is edematous but there is no evidence of crypt distortion, granuloma or thickened basement membranes. These are the typical features of pseudomembranous colitis. Differential Diagnosis: Ulcerative colitis and Crohns disease would be associated with chronic inflammatory changes, including crypt distortion, basal plasmacytosis, and in the case of Crohns disease noncaseating granulomas. None of these are present in the current case. Collagenous colitis would be associated with increased subepithelial collagen, and an uncomplicated case would not show the acute inflammatory changes seen here. The differential diagnosis for the pseudomembranous colitis pattern includes C. ...
Objective. The association between smoking and idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease is well known; smoking seems to have a diverse effect. Crohns disease is associated with smoking, while ulcerative colitis is associated with non-smoking. Data on smoking inmicroscopic colitis of the collagenous type (CC) are lacking. The aim of this investigation was to study smoking habits in CC and to observe whether smoking had any impact on the course of the disease. Materials and methods. 116 patients (92 women) with median age of 62 years (interquartile range 55-73) answered questionnaires covering demographic data, smoking habits and disease activity. As control group we used data from the general population in Sweden retrieved from Statistics Sweden, the central bureau for national socioeconomic information. Results. Of the 116 CC patients, 37% were smokers compared with 17% of controls (p andlt; 0.001, odds ratio (OR) 2.95). In the age group 16-44 years, 75% of CC patients were smokers compared with ...
A 73-year-old female during the treatment of cryptogenic organizing pneumonia (COP) consulted our outpatient clinic complained of chronic diarrhea lasting more than six months. There was no body weight loss, and she did not feel severe abdominal pain. Twelve months prior consultation, prednisolone and lansoprazole were started to be administrated against COP. Since the patient had a past history of peptic ulcer, proton pump inhibitor (PPI) was also started against the adverse effect of corticosteroid therapy. Administration of corticosteroid and lansoprazole was also continued, because of repeating recurrence and improvement of COP. On physical examination, abdomen showed no significant abnormal findings. Stool color was normal, and stool occult blood examination was also negative. And stool bacterial culture did not show abnormal finding. Blood laboratory examination showed as following; white blood cell count 4,890/mL, hemoglobin 15.0 g/dL, platelet count 199,000/mL, total protein 6.7 g/dL, albumin 4
Colitis is associated with chronic watery diarrhea. The colonoscopy is typically normal, but biopsies of the colon show increased numbers of chronic inflammatory cells and a pink staining stripe that looks like a collagen band in the case of collagenous colitis.

Hello all.... I am 28 years old, have a history of Hodgkins disease in remission for 14 yrs and was recently diagnosed with collagenous colitis about
Collagenous mucosal inflammatory disease is a rare gastrointestinal disorder that involves the columnar lining of gastric and intestinal mucosa and is characterized by a distinct subepithelial collagen deposition. Recent clinical and pathological evidence have indicated that collagenous mucosal inflammatory disease can be extensive disease that may concomitantly involve several gastrointestinal sites at the same time. This entity, however, occurs infrequently in children. It is even less common to find concomitant depositions of collagen in the mucosa of gastrointestinal sites other than the colon. Only two cases in pediatric literature reported concomitant involvement, one with gastric and colonic involvement and the other one with gastroduodenocolitis. We are reporting a 15-month-old boy who presented with severe diarrhea and diffuse edema secondary to hypoalbuminemia. Further testing documented protein losing enteropathy (PLE) associated with collagenous colitis.
In case you are in want of residence repairs or remodeling and would like to save thousands of dollars on your tasks, attempt applying for house enchancment grants. Airway remodeling in asthma was first described in 1922 by Hubert and Koessler in cases of deadly asthma (reviewed in Reference 1 ). Airway remodeling has been documented in all degrees of asthma severities and in each large and small airways ( 2 ). Airway remodeling refers to structural changes in airways of subjects with bronchial asthma which are not seen in healthy subjects.. Some variable correlations have been found between the severity of asthma, airway hyperresponsiveness or assault rating, and subepithelial collagen types I and III deposition within the airways ( 31 - 34 ). Subepithelial fibrosis has been related to the severity of asthma, and in severe bronchial asthma, elevated airway wall thickness is observed ( 35 ). Proteoglycan deposition in the ECM and bronchial fibroblast manufacturing of proteoglycans also correlate ...

Microscopic colitis includes collagenous colitis and lymphocytic colitis and is characterized by chronic diarrhea caused by inflammation in the colon. Collagenous colitis and lymphocytic colitis are two types of bowel inflammation that affect the colon (large intestine). They are not related to Crohns disease or ulcerative colitis, which are more severe forms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). These conditions are not life-threatening and there is no increased risk of cancer.. This condition is known as microscopic colitis because physicians cant see the inflammation without a microscope. Instead, tissue samples from the colon must be examined under a microscope to make the diagnosis. When looked at through an endoscope during a colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy, the colon appears entirely normal. What causes microscopic colitis? ...
Microscopic colitis describes inflammation in the colon. There are two primary types: collagenous and lymphocytic. If you have collagenous colitis, it indicates that a thick layer of collagen has formed on colon tissue. If you have lymphocytic colitis, it means lymphocytes have formed on colon tissue.. This condition is called microscopic due to the fact that doctors must look at tissue under a microscopic lense to detect it. This condition normally causes watery diarrhea and other digestive symptoms. ...

Corticosteroids, man-made drugs that closely resemble cortisol (a hormone that your adrenal glands produce). Steroids work by decreasing inflammation and reducing the activity of the immune system. The two steroids most often prescribed for microscopic colitis are budesonide (Entocort®) and prednisone. Budesonide is believed to be the safest and most effective medication for treating microscopic colitis ...

We have recently shown that QoL, assessed by the Gastrointestinal Quality of Life Index is considerably reduced in collagenous colitis.[22] Although it can be assumed that lymphocytic colitis may also have an effect on the patients QoL, it has not been formally investigated so far. When we started our present trial, we decided to use the generic SF-36,[23] because we were interested to investigate the effect of lymphocytic colitis on the general QoL. Our findings suggest that lymphocytic colitis may affect on general QoL similar to other chronic gastrointestinal diseases.[23] However, only the physical sum score of the SF-36 improved after 6 weeks of treatment with budesonide, whereas the mental sum score did not. A possible reason for this observation might be that the SF-36 is not disease specific and, therefore, not sensitive enough to detect treatment effects. Meanwhile, we have shown that the SF-36 is comparable to the short inflammatory bowel disease questionnaire (SIBDQ) to detect ...
Background and Aim: Microscopic colitis, comprising collagenous colitis and lymphocytic colitis, is a common cause of chronic diarrhea. Previously, we showed enhanced chemokine productions in microscopic colitis patients, indicating dysregulated immune cell chemotaxis in the immunopathogenesis. We also showed decreased mRNA of IL-37, mainly regarded as an anti-inflammatory cytokine, in the colonic mucosa of these patients, potentially an important factor for the chronicity of the colitis. Our aim in this study was to understand the possible role of IL-37 in chemokine production using a cell line model.. Methods: A colon epithelial cell line, T84, was stimulated with the TLR5 ligand flagellin. IL-37 protein production was reduced 20% using the CRISPR/Cas9 system, and the changes in chemokine mRNA and protein expressions were compared to cells transfected with empty plasmid.. Results: The 20% reduction in IL-37 protein levels spontaneously increased CCL5, CXCL8, CXCL10, and CXCL11 mRNA and protein ...
Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is defined as the presence of hepatic steatosis and inflammation with hepatocyte injury (ballooning) with or without fibrosis. NASH is often a silent liver disease. Estimated prevalence of NASH ranges from 3% to 5% in different studies. The prevalence of NASH-related cirrhosis in the general population is not known. Herein, we report a case of a young female presented with NASH-related cirrhosis in the setting of poorly controlled celiac disease (CD) and microscopic colitis. A variety of liver abnormalities have been observed in patients with CD, but this unique constellation of the gut and liver pathologies has not been reported previously. ...

Collagenous colitis (CC) and lymphocytic colitis (LC) are relatively rare conditions that are diagnosed when a patient with chronic watery nonbloody diarrhea has an endoscopically or radiographically normal colon, but colonic biopsies show unique inflammatory changes. Because the mucosa is not ulcerated or otherwise disrupted, the diarrhea ge...
Initially, the patient appeared to have classic coeliac disease, with diarrhoea and weight loss together with a positive serology. The endoscopy was crucial as the duodenal biopsies identified the presence of a thick band-like deposit of collagen just below the duodenal epithelium. On the basis of this finding, collagenous sprue was diagnosed.. Collagenous sprue was first described in 1947,1 but it was not until 1970 that Weinstein et al. introduced it as a diagnostic term to the medical nomenclature.2 Collagenous sprue is more frequent in females and in individuals who have other autoimmune diseases.3 It is now recognised that collagenous sprue shares similar clinical features with coeliac disease, such as chronic diarrhoea, anaemia and weight loss. In addition, the endoscopic and histological features of both diseases are similar, with an atrophic and scalloped duodenal mucosa. However, the histological hallmark of collagenous sprue is the presence of a thick subepithelial collagen band. Such ...

Some gastrointestinal diseases can be seen and diagnosed with the naked eye, such as ulcers of the stomach. Thus, ulcers can be seen at surgery, on x-rays, and at endoscopies. Other diseases cannot be seen with the naked eye but can be seen and diagnosed with the microscope. For example, celiac disease and collagenous colitis are diagnosed by microscopic examination of biopsies of the small bowel and colon, respectively. In contrast, gastrointestinal functional diseases cannot be seen with the naked eye or with the microscope. In some instances, the abnormal function can be demonstrated by tests, for example, gastric emptying studies or antro-duodenal motility studies. However, these tests often are complex, are not widely available, and do not reliably detect the functional abnormalities. Accordingly, by default, functional gastrointestinal diseases are those involving the abnormal function of gastrointestinal organs in which abnormalities cannot be seen in the organs with either the naked eye ...

In clinical trials, a Boswellia preparation, given orally, was shown to be effective in the treatment of bronchial asthma6 and ulcerative colitis.7 But definitive data are lacking to support its utility for osteoarthritis8,9 and collagenous colitis.10 Boswellia also was found to be ineffective in sustaining remission of Crohns disease.11. Recent investigations into Boswellias anticancer effects showed that when taken orally, it was useful in reducing cerebral edema following radiotherapy in patients with brain tumors,12 and an oral formulation consisting of boswellic acid, betaine, and myo-inositol helped to reduce mammary density, a risk factor for breast cancer.13 In addition, the topical use of a Boswellia-based cream was found to be effective in preventing skin damage due to radiotherapy in patients with breast cancer.14 Larger studies are needed to confirm these data..

Water on its own can aggravate watery diarrhea in some instances. It may not be absorbed into the body due to the lack of electrolytes. While fluid replenishment is essential in diarrhea, especially when the stool is very watery, drinking water alone may not be your best option. An oral rehydrating solution (ORS) should be the fluid of choice. It can be made at home with clean water, sugar and salt but ideally you should opt for a commercial ORS which is available in most supermarkets and pharmacies.. Commercial ORS is usually in the form of a sachet containing granules that can be diluted in water. An ORS has the correct concentration of electrolytes which helps water to be absorbed into the body rather than remaining in the bowels where it exacerbates the watery diarrhea. Furthermore the electrolytes help with reducing dehydration. The ORS should be used exactly as directed. Mix well to ensure that the granules adequately dissolve in the water.. ...
