Etiology includes ISCHEMIA, infections, allergic, and immune responses.Mice, Knockout: 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.Diarrhea: An increased liquidity or decreased consistency of FECES, such as running stool.

Interleukin-10 combines with itself to form a homodimeric molecule that is the biologically active form of the protein.Cytokines: Non-antibody proteins secreted by inflammatory leukocytes and some non-leukocytic cells, that act as intercellular mediators. They differ from classical hormones in that they are produced by a number of tissue or cell types rather than by specialized glands. They generally act locally in a paracrine or autocrine rather than endocrine manner.Cecum: The blind sac or outpouching area of the LARGE INTESTINE that is below the entrance of the SMALL INTESTINE. It has a worm-like extension, the vermiform APPENDIX.Citrobacter rodentium: A species of gram-negative bacteria in the genus CITROBACTER, family ENTEROBACTERIACEAE.

In addition to anti-inflammatory actions, they have analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions.They act by blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, which converts arachidonic acid to cyclic endoperoxides, precursors of prostaglandins. Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis accounts for their analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions; other mechanisms may contribute to their anti-inflammatory effects.Megacolon, Toxic: An acute form of MEGACOLON, severe pathological dilatation of the COLON. It is associated with clinical conditions such as ULCERATIVE COLITIS; CROHN DISEASE; AMEBIC DYSENTERY; or CLOSTRIDIUM ENTEROCOLITIS.Ileum: The distal and narrowest portion of the SMALL INTESTINE, between the JEJUNUM and the ILEOCECAL VALVE of the LARGE INTESTINE.Oxazolone: Immunologic adjuvant and sensitizing agent.Biopsy: Removal and pathologic examination of specimens in the form of small pieces of tissue from the living body.Clostridium difficile: A common inhabitant of the colon flora in human infants and sometimes in adults.

Bacterial translocation from the lung to the circulation is also possible and sometimes accompanies MECHANICAL VENTILATION.Mesentery: A layer of the peritoneum which attaches the abdominal viscera to the ABDOMINAL WALL and conveys their blood vessels and nerves.Clostridium Infections: Infections with bacteria of the genus CLOSTRIDIUM.Collagen Diseases: Historically, a heterogeneous group of acute and chronic diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, progressive systemic sclerosis, dermatomyositis, etc. This classification was based on the notion that "collagen" was equivalent to "connective tissue", but with the present recognition of the different types of collagen and the aggregates derived from them as distinct entities, the term "collagen diseases" now pertains exclusively to those inherited conditions in which the primary defect is at the gene level and affects collagen biosynthesis, post-translational modification, or extracellular processing directly. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1494)CD4-Positive T-Lymphocytes: A critical subpopulation of T-lymphocytes involved in the induction of most immunological functions. The HIV virus has selective tropism for the T4 cell which expresses the CD4 phenotypic marker, a receptor for HIV. In fact, the key element in the profound immunosuppression seen in HIV infection is the depletion of this subset of T-lymphocytes.Severity of Illness Index: Levels within a diagnostic group which are established by various measurement criteria applied to the seriousness of a patient's disorder.Ulcer: A lesion on the surface of the skin or a mucous surface, produced by the sloughing of inflammatory necrotic tissue.Mucin-2: A gel-forming mucin found predominantly in SMALL INTESTINE and variety of mucous membrane-containing organs.

Ischaemic enterocolitis complicating idiopathic dysautonomia. (1/88)

A previously fit 23 year old adult male who presented with a sudden onset of profound autonomic neuropathy, for which no cause could be found, is described. The patient subsequently developed ischaemic enterocolitis that ultimately necessitated colectomy and subtotal enterectomy. Potential neural and humoral mechanisms are discussed.  (+info)

Can colonoscopy diagnose transmural ischaemic colitis after abdominal aortic surgery? An evidence-based approach. (2/88)

OBJECTIVES: to assess the diagnostic value of colonoscopy in ischaemic colitis following abdominal aortic surgery, based on a literature review, and to introduce the concept of evidence-based medicine. METHOD: a review of the literature according to evidence-based principles was made by all doctors of our department. RESULTS: seven prospective non-randomised reports on routine colonoscopy after abdominal aortic surgery were found. None of the participants found all the reports, and the last was identified by the reviewer. CONCLUSIONS: Endoscopy may disclose ischaemic colitis, but cannot separate transmural from the clinically less important mucosal ischaemia. Endoscopy had no impact on mortality in any of the prospective series. The evidence-based conference was an inspiring teaching modality, and illustrated for the participants the difficulty in performing a targeted literature search.  (+info)

Idiopathic enterocolic lymphocytic phlebitis: a rare cause of ischemic colitis. (3/88)

We report on a 74-year-old female patient who was admitted to the hospital because of abdominal pain. She underwent a colonoscopy and a stenosing mass was found in the cecum. Histologic findings in the biopsy specimens were consistent with ischemic colitis. Due to clinical symptoms and the endoscopic and radiologic findings that roused the suspicion that the patient was suffering from a malignant tumor, a right hemicolectomy was performed. Histology of the resection specimen disclosed an inflammation of the veins. It was characterized by a predominantly lymphocytic infiltration of the vessels affecting the veins of the colonic wall and the mesentery. Furthermore, secondary thrombosis with focal venous occlusion was observed. The colon showed extensive ischemic colitis with focal transmural coagulation necrosis. The disease was considered to be idiopathic lymphocytic phlebitis, which is a rare disease of unknown origin. Our patient is well and alive after more than 1 year, supporting the notion that the disease shows a benign course after surgery.  (+info)

Rare complications of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography: two case reports. (4/88)

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a diagnostic procedure with several known risks. We present two rarely reported complications of ERCP and sphincterotomy: transverse mesocolon disruption with ischemic colitis and splenic rupture. RESULTS: The first patient, a 54-year-old female, presented one day following ERCP and stent revision for pancreas divisum. She presented with hypotension and abdominal distention. An abdominal computed tomography (CT) showed a ruptured spleen, which was confirmed on laparotomy. She had a complicated postoperative course and died of multiple organ failure. The second patient is a 56-year-old female who presented five days after ERCP and sphincterotomy with abdominal pain, abdominal wall ecchymosis, and decreasing hematocrit. Her evaluation included hospital admission and abdominal CT scan, which showed free fluid and a large hematoma in the transverse mesocolon. These findings were confirmed on laparotomy and a devascularized segment of bowel was resected. CONCLUSION: Only 6 cases of ERCP-related splenic injury have been reported in the literature. One additional report is available of a fatal splenic artery injury. No previous reports exist of a mesenteric hematoma resulting in bowel devascularization. Prompt evaluation and awareness of potential complications should help capture potentially life-threatening sequelae of ERCP.  (+info)

Complete small bowel recovery after prolonged total venous occlusion. (5/88)

Acute small bowel ischaemia is a mostly irreversible condition associated with high mortality. Here we report the case of a patient after severe abdominal trauma in whom the superior mesenteric vein (SMV) was completely occluded for more than 15 h in the absence of any collateral venous drainage. Following surgical reconstruction of the SMV and with scheduled relaparotomies for 5 days, the bowel showed slow recovery. Now the patient is well and on complete oral nutrition.  (+info)

Fulminant ischaemic colitis with atypical clinical features complicating sickle cell disease. (6/88)

Clinically significant ischaemic bowel injury is an exceedingly rare complication of sickle cell disease. It manifests as acute surgical abdomen and may respond to conservative treatment. An unusual fatal case of ischaemic colitis with minimal abdominal findings in a young male during a sickle cell vaso-occlusive pain crisis is described. This case demonstrates that an acute surgical abdomen should be considered in such patients who fail to respond to conservative management as untreated this condition may be fatal.  (+info)

Endothelin-1 induces mucosal mast cell degranulation and tissue injury via ETA receptors. (7/88)

The effects of endothelin-1 (ET-1) on mucosal mast cells are of special interest, since they may be an important component of the tissue response that occurs during ischaemic preconditioning or ischaemia/re-oxygenation injuries. Increasing doses of ET-1 were administered intravenously to anaesthetized rats. In a second series of experiments, animals were pretreated with the ET(A) receptor antagonists BQ-610 or ETR-P1/fl peptide, or with the ET(B) receptor antagonist IRL-1038. Intestinal perfusion changes were recorded, and the proportion of degranulated mast cells and the degree of mucosal damage were determined in ileal biopsies. ET-1 induced dose-dependent alterations in the haemodynamic and morphological parameters, and caused significant mast cell degranulation. These changes were inhibited significantly by pretreatment with the ET(A) receptor antagonists, but not with the ET(B) receptor antagonist. We conclude that a cross-talk exists between endothelial cell-derived humoral mediators and the intestinal mast cell system.  (+info)

Colonic necrosis and perforation secondary to Escherichia coli O157:H7 gastroenteritis in an adult patient without hemolytic uremic syndrome. (8/88)

During a multistate outbreak of Escherichia coli O157:H7 diarrhea, we encountered a woman who had hemorrhagic colitis complicated by ischemic colitis with perforation. To our knowledge, this has not previously been described in adult patients. Because of the insensitivity of the commonly used diagnostic methods, this condition may be underrecognized.  (+info)

Ischemic colitis occurs when blood flow to part of the large intestine (colon) is reduced, usually due to narrowed or blocked blood vessels (arteries). The diminished blood flow doesnt provide enough oxygen for the cells in your digestive system.. Ischemic colitis can cause pain and may damage your colon. Any part of the colon can be affected, but ischemic colitis usually causes pain on the left side of the belly area (abdomen).. The condition can be misdiagnosed because it can easily be confused with other digestive problems. Ischemic colitis may heal on its own. But you may need medication to treat ischemic colitis or prevent infection, or you may need surgery if your colon has been damaged.. Signs and symptoms of ischemic colitis can include:. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Development and validation of a novel prognostic scoring model for ischemic colitis. AU - Chung, Joo Won. AU - Cheon, Jae Hee. AU - Park, Jae Jun. AU - Jung, Eun Suk. AU - Choi, Eun Hee. AU - Kim, Hannah. PY - 2010/9/1. Y1 - 2010/9/1. N2 - PURPOSE: This study was conducted to identify prognostic factors affecting the course of ischemic colitis and to develop a prognostic scoring model. METHODS: We analyzed medical records of consecutive patients with ischemic colitis treated between October 2002 and September 2008 at Severance Hospital, Seoul, Republic of Korea. Patients were excluded if results of endoscopy were unavailable. Patients were classified as having severe ischemic colitis on the basis of outcome (improvement delayed for more than 2 weeks, complications requiring surgery, or death). Univariate analyses and multivariate logistic regression analyses with backward stepwise selection were used to identify clinical, endoscopic, and laboratory variables associated with ...
Ischemic colitis secondary to inferior mesenteric arteriovenous fistula and portal vein stenosis in a liver transplant recipient.: Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) i
In its early phases, bed rests and supportive care, possibly with antibiotics is instituted. Attempts are made to understand what caused the disease. Problems such as blood clots to arteries supplying the colon must be diagnosed. If the patient has low blood pressure from other causes, the blood supply to the colon may be diminished leading to ischemic colitis. The underlying cause of the low blood pressure must be treated. Finally, ischemic colitis may occur after the repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm, and this may require reoperation.. I.V. fluids are given, along with antibiotics. Patients may not eat or drink anything. If the disease is severe enough, is non-responsive to conservative care or is life threatening, surgery to remove the diseased portion of the colon will be undertaken.. ...
Ischemic colitis tends to affect older adults and seniors.You may relieve uncomfortable symptoms by switching to an ischemic colitis diet.
Ischaemic colitis. Endoscopic view of the interior of a patients colon (large intestine) affected by ischaemic colitis. Ischaemic colitis is the inflammation of the colon due to reduced blood supply. Ischaemia is an uncommon cause of colitis and is caused by narrowing of the arteries supplying the intestines by atherosclerosis (the build up of plaque on the inner lining of an artery). Bloody diarrhoea and abdominal pain may be a symptom of chronic conditions. - Stock Image C025/0068
In the study of 15 patients with ischemia of the colon, researchers found that rigid proctoscopy was normal or demonstrated nonspecific proctitis in 12 of 15 patients studied. Colonoscopic biopsies demonstrated superficial inflammatory changes in all patients. Thirteen patients had complete mucosal healing endoscopically in 2 weeks to 3 months with stricture developing in four patients. Because ischemic colitis is a distinct subtype of ischemic bowel disease most often limited to the superficial mucosa, colonoscopy is an alternative and usually safe modality in the diagnosis of this entity and proved more accurate that conventional x-ray and proctoscopy(97 ...

The new warning states, "Serious consequences of diarrhea, including hypovolemia, hypotension and syncope have been reported in the clinical studies and during marketed use of Zelnorm. In some cases, these complications have required hospitalization for rehydration. Zelnorm should be discontinued immediately in patients who develop hypotension or syncope. Zelnorm should not be initiated in patients who are currently experiencing or frequently experience diarrhea.". The new precaution on ischemic colitis states, "Ischemic colitis, and other forms of intestinal ischemia, have been reported in patients receiving Zelnorm during marketed use of the drug. A causal relationship between Zelnorm use and these events has not been established. Placebo-controlled clinical trials of 7,000 patients for 3-month duration showed no cases of these events, and would suggest the rate of these events is low. Zelnorm should be discontinued immediately in patients who develop symptoms of ischemic colitis, such as ...
Emeritus Chief of Gastroenterology Dr. Lawrence J. Brandts research interests include ischemic and vascular disorders of the gastrointestinal system, inflammatory bowel diseases, C. difficile colitis, geriatric gastroenterology, AIDS, and endoscopic technique. Long-standing major interests are the patient-doctor relationship and the way that a patients psychological makeup influences his/her illnesses and treatments.. Amongst his contributions are: the performance of the first non-operative gastric polypectomy; the demonstration that gastrointestinal bacteria produce cobamides from dietary vitamin B12 that may inhibit vitamin B12 absorption; that metronidazole can heal and maintain healing of perineal Crohns disease; that most cases of newly diagnosed IBD in the elderly are actually ischemic colitis misdiagnosed as ulcerative or Crohns colitis; the classification of ischemic colitis and description of its natural history according to site of colonic involvement; the first demonstration of ...
It depends on the severity, but generally, the inflammation will heal on its own. You may be asked to stay on a bland, low-fiber diet for 1-2 weeks. Avoiding non-steroidal inflammatory drugs (Ibuprofen, etc) may speed the healing of the colitis. If a drug is identified that may have caused the ischemic colitis, you may be asked to stop it. Smoking cessation improves the health of the blood vessels supplying your colon. If you have had blood clots in other areas of the body, or a family history of blood clots, then you may be asked to undergo testing for blood clotting disorders (hypercoagulable state). If you have had more than one episode of ischemic colitis, additional imaging may be recommended to look at the vessels that supply blood to the colon. Occasionally, a repeat colonoscopy is recommended to assure that the colon has healed, but depends on the severity of the involvement, and will be determined by your physician.. ...

Although the treatment of MM has undergone significant development during the past decades, MM remains an incurable malignancy and requires long-term follow-up. Furthermore, despite the positive results with lenalidomide maintenance therapy in the post-ASCT setting, many issues affect MM follow-up. These include the treatment-related toxicities of lenalidomide that are more frequently recognized with long-term use (1). The interest of this clinical case is 2-fold: firstly the unusual occurrence of VTE causing IC in our patient; in fact, therapy with lenalidomide as a single agent does not increase the risk of VTE in relapsed or refractory MM. The risk of VTE is usually increased when lenalidomide is given together with dexamethasone or chemotherapy and/or erythropoietin, and in these cases many thrombotic events appear during the first months of therapy, with a median appearance at 1.3 months (3). The second point of interest of this case is its favorable diagnostic management. In fact, even if ...

To help prevent blood clots from forming, its important to stay active and eat a healthy diet. Make it a priority to exercise regularly and avoid long periods of prolonged inactivity or immobilization. Aim to be active for at least 30 minutes daily. Also, take breaks regularly when youve been sitting for an extended period of time.. If you smoke cigarettes, make every effort to quit as soon as possible since smoking increases the risk for blood clots. Certain medications may also increase your risk for developing blood clots, including hormone replacement drugs (usually used by menopausal or postmenopausal women), birth control pills, medications to control blood pressure, and cancer treatment drugs. Discuss your risk of blood clots with your doctor if you use these medications, especially if you have a history of heart-related problems.. Supplements that may be able to help lower your risk for blood clots include: antioxidants like vitamin E, garlic, and turmeric.. 5. Avoid Becoming ...

A 75 year-old female presented with abdominal pain and hematochezia. She underwent a colonoscopy that revealed multiple mucosal ulcerations suggestive of ischemic colitis. Colonic biopsies were performed. No other information was available at the time of the histological diagnosis. After the diagnostic report we received the clinical information that two days before the colonoscopy she presented at emergency room with a urinary tract infection and worsening of the chronic renal insufficiency that she had for 7 years. Because the patient had potassium levels of 6,2mEq/L she was treated with Sodium Sulfonated Polystyrene (Kayexalate), a cation-exchange resin. At the second day of treatment she started with bloody diarrhea. C. difficile toxin and Cytomegalovirus serology were negative. ...

Alosetron was originally approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on February 9, 2000,[1] after a seven-month review.[2] At the time of the initial approval U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reviewers found that alosetron improved symptoms in 10% to 20% of patients.[3] Shipment to pharmacies started in March, 2000. On July 17, a health professional filed a report with the FDA on the death of a 50-year-old woman who suffered mesenteric ischemia. The report identified alosetron as the "primary suspect" in the death.[4] Alosetron was withdrawn from the market voluntarily by GlaxoWellcome on November 28, 2000 owing to the occurrence of serious life-threatening gastrointestinal adverse effects, including 5 deaths and additional bowel surgeries.[2] The FDA said it had reports of 49 cases of ischemic colitis and 21 cases of "severe constipation" and that ten of the 70 patients underwent surgeries and 34 others were examined at hospitals and released without surgery.

BACKGROUND: Rates of pregnancy post heart transplantation (HT) are increasing. Cesarean delivery (CD) rate post HT is 30%.1 Reports of anesthetic management of these patients are rare. We report the anesthetic management of CD in a patient post HT and review similar published cases. CASE REPORT: A 36 y G1P0 presented with a history of post viral dilated cardiomyopathy requiring orthotopic HT at age 30. Post-transplant course was complicated by sepsis, acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease, and bowel resection for ischemic colitis. Graft sinus dysfunction required permanent pacemaker insertion. In pregnancy, the patient had a pulmonary embolus requiring therapeutic anticoagulation. She was admitted at 35+3 weeks gestation for increasing exertional dyspnea and anxiety. Elective CD was performed at 36+2 weeks gestation due to severe patient anxiety. ASA monitors were applied; arterial line was deferred due to poor radial artery perfusion from prior cannulation. Aspiration prophylaxis, ...

MP is most often an incidental finding during an investigation for other reasons. The most common physical finding is a poorly defined mass or masses in the right upper quadrant. Patients usually present with vague symptoms of abdominal fullness and pain in the upper or central abdomen [1]. There may also be nausea, altered bowel habit and lethargy. Rectal bleeding, as in the patient presented here, is an unusual presentation for MP [6]. Even though in our patient hematochezia could have been caused by antibiotic-associated colitis because of a preceding course of therapy with a broad-spectrum penicillin, histological examination of colonic biopsies and microbiologic testing excluded the differential diagnosis of Clostridium difficile-associated colitis.. Laboratory investigations are usually grossly normal. Studies found that patients had a raised erythrocyte sedimentation rate or other acute phase reactants [1]. In our case, elevated laboratory signs of inflammation were found only during the ...

Summary Safety Review - Over-the-Counter Products Containing Pseudoephedrine - Assessing the Potential Risk of Inflammation and Injury of the Large Intestine due to Insufficient Blood Supply (ischemic colitis)
After ephedra was taken off the market in 2004, bitter orange (Citrus aurantium) a herb much like ephedra, began to grow to be extra well-liked. It accommodates compounds much like ephedrine referred to as synephrine and octopamine. Bitter orange might elevate blood strain, enhance coronary heart fee or trigger irregular coronary heart rhythms. Theres a case report of ischemic colitis ssociated with the usage of bitter orange. Folks with coronary heart illness, hypertension, different cardiovascular circumstances or diabetes ought to keep away from it; nonetheless, anybody contemplating it ought to seek the advice of a professional healthcare skilled first. It should not be taken with caffeine or herbs containing caffeine (inexperienced tea, yerba mate), as a result of it may theoretically enhance the chance of adversarial results much like ephedra. It interacts with many drugs and may enhance or lower their impact.. ...
A supply of oxygenated blood appropriate to the tissue needs of the gut is essential to the maintenance of its vital functions. The splanchnic vascular system serves this purpose and much of our knowledge of ischaemic bowel disease has developed from studies of radiological and pathological abnormalities of this system. The purpose of this paper is to summarize current information concerning the histopathology of intestinal ischaemia in the light of our better understanding of the micro-circulation of the gut in health and disease; also to describe the difficulties we have in understanding the pathogenesis of ischaemic bowel disease because of the growing spectrum of systemic disorders with which it is associated.
Leukocyte recruitment is a key feature in ischemiaâ€"reperfusion (I/R)-induced tissue injury. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of Rho-kinase inhibition on I/R-provoked leukocyte recruitment in the colon. C57BL/6 mice were subjected to 30 min of ischemia by clamping of the superior mesenteric artery followed by 120 min of reperfusion. Intraperitoneal pretreatment with the selective Rho-kinase inhibitors fasudil (4â€"40 mg/kg) and Y-27632 (1â€"10 mg/kg) was administered prior to induction of colonic I/R. Leukocyteâ€"endothelium interactions were analyzed by intravital fluorescence microscopy. Colonic content of tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and the CXC chemokines macrophage inflammatory protein-2 (MIP-2) and cytokine-induced neutrophil chemoattractant (KC) were determined by ELISA. Additionally, colonic activity of myeloperoxidase (MPO), a marker of leukocyte infiltration, and malondialdehyde (MDA), were quantified. Fasudil and Y-27632 pretreatment ...

An inflammatory myopathy, inclusion body myositis (IBM) presents with progressive muscle weakness against a background of elevated creatine kinase and diffuse endomysial damage. Typically occurring in patients greater than 50 years of age, it is commonly misdiagnosed as polymyositis or other rheumatological disease and is often ineffectively treated with steroids [1]. The approach to IBM is frequently a clinical challenge due to its unique and often aberrant response to common treatment modalities. Here we report an apparent improvement in the clinical course of and associated laboratory findings in a patient with co-existing IBM following the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy as an adjunct for managing ischemic colitis.
Purpose: To present the first case of colonic ischemia (CI) after endovascular exclusion of an aortoiliac aneurysm using an iliac branch device (IBD). Case report: A 69-year-old male patient with an abdominal aortic and right common iliac artery aneurysm underwent endovascular repair with an IBD. Completion angiography demonstrated good patency in 2 of the 3 main branches of the right internal iliac artery (IIA) whereas the left IIA patency was preserved. Preoperatively, the inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) was patent. Postoperatively, the patient presented moderate CI. He was treated conservatively and discharged 15 days later with recession of the symptoms. Conclusion: Although preservation of bilateral iliac artery patency is considered to diminish the incidence of pelvic ischemia, in case of an exclusion of a patent IMA, collaterals may not be adequate to ensure blood supply to the left colon ...
FINAL DIAGNOSIS:. NECROTIZING PSEUDOMEMBRANOUS COLITIS SECONDARY TO CLOSTRIDIUM DIFFICILE INFECTION.. Contributors Note:. Clostridium difficile is a Gram positive, obligate anaerobic, spore-forming, bacillus. Found in marine sediment, soil, the hospital environment, and feces, it produces two protein toxins (A and B) and a motility altering factor. Toxin A, a 308 kDa protein consisting of 2710 amino acids, is a potent enterotoxin and a weak cytotoxin which causes a proteinaceous fluid response and affects cell viability by disrupting the cytoskeleton. Toxin A also has a chemotactic effect on neutrophils and causes the release of prostaglandins and leukotrienes which contribute to the inflammatory process. Toxin B, a 279 kDa, 2366 amino acid protein, is a cytotoxin.. Up to 50% of neonates have colonizing C. difficile in their intestines but an inherent protection against toxin A. Once the normal intestinal flora is established, C. difficile is not as prevalent. Found in the feces of only 3% of ...

Being a 29 year old who takes oral contraceptives I was skeptical of mid-cycle pain, and diverticulosis seemed unlikely but whatever. The pain got better and about 3 weeks later I got terrible diarrhea for 4 days followed by the same colicy LLQ pain, but more persistent and painful than before.

Title: Propofol and Systemic Inflammatory Response in Abdominal Aortic Surgery. VOLUME: 5 ISSUE: 2. Author(s):Jose M. Rodriguez-Lopez and Francisco S. Lozano. Affiliation:Servicio de Anestesiologia,Hospital Universitario de Salamanca, Paseo de San Vicente, 58-182, 37007,Salamanca, Spain.. Keywords:Propofol, Systemic inflammatory response, Aortic surgery, Aortic cross-clamping. Abstract: Abdominal aortic surgery is relatively common associated with considerable postoperative morbidity and mortality. The aortic cross-clamping for the implantation of a vascular prosthetic graft induces a systemic inflammatory response (SIR) because of an ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury. In our experimental models we have reported that propofol anesthesia, compared with sevoflurane, after IR modulates SIR and this effect might result in renal protection. ...
An increasing rate of infections with Shiga toxin/verotoxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC/VTEC) O104:H4 has been observed in Germany since May 2011, with unusually high numbers of patients suffering from haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS). We report a STEC/VTEC O104:H4 case without HUS, presenting with colonic ischaemia demanding surgery. This atypical clinical presentation of STEC O104:H4 infection might indicate new severe complications associated with this uncommon strain, and highlights the importance of immediate interdisciplinary assessment of STEC/VTEC patients.

Patients undergoing surgery on their Aorta can get ischemia, a lack of blood flow, to their intestines and colon. This is very serious, as 2 out of 3 patients who have this problem die before leaving the hospital. A device developed by Spectros, called T-Stat, is approved by the US FDA to detect ischemia, and has been reported to detect ischemia in AAA aneurysm surgery and stenting, allowing the surgeon or interventional radiologist to take action quickly, while the colon ischemia is still treatable.. This purpose of this study is to establish how T-Stat can best be used to prevent deaths. ...

C. difficile infection is usually caused by the use of antibiotics, which alters the normal flora of the intestinal tract and results in a pseudomembranous colitis due to the opportunistic colonization by C. difficile. On October 21, 2016 intravenously (IV)-administered bezlotoxumab was the first human mAb to achieve accelerated approval and breakthrough therapy status by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), because it is the first therapeutic option indicated to reduce recurrence of CDI in individuals 18 years of age or older currently receiving standard-of-care (SOC) antibiotics for CDI and who are at a high risk for CDI recurrence.. The FDA approval of bezlotoxumab was based on safety and efficacy demonstrated in two Phase III randomized, multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials. Notable enrollment criteria for both trials included individuals with confirmed diagnosis of CDI (≥ 3 loose stools in ≤ 24 hours and + stool test for toxigenic C. difficile collected within ...

The researchers suspect that later-onset disease is related to changes in the aging immune system and to environmental influences such as smoking. Nearly 52 percent in the late-onset group were former smokers, compared with only 13.5 percent of the younger patients. Smoking is a well-known risk factor for colitis.. "We know from research by other investigators that as people age their immune systems tend to quiet down, and the results from our study may reflect that finding," Ciorba says. "Ulcerative colitis is driven by an over-active immune response in the gut, so it makes sense that people whose immune systems are less active might have better outcomes. Conversely, younger patients are more likely to have robust inflammatory responses, so their disease is harder to quiet down.". Both younger and older patients received the same treatments, mainly 5-ASAs and steroids. About 63 percent of early onset patients and 68 percent of late-onset patients received either oral or intravenous steroids ...
