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.

Mechanism of diarrhea in microscopic colitis. (1/21)

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)

Lymphocytic colitis: a clue to bacterial etiology. (2/21)

AIM: To find out the role of bacteria as a possible etiological factor in lymphocytic colitis. METHODS: Twenty patients with histopathological diagnosis of lymphocytic colitis and 10 normal controls were included in this study. Colonoscopic biopsies were obtained from three sites (hepatic and splenic flexures and rectosigmoid region). Each biopsy was divided into two parts. A fresh part was incubated on special cultures for bacterial growth. The other part was used for the preparation of histologic tissue sections that were examined for the presence of bacteria with the help of Giemsa stain. RESULTS: Culture of tissue biopsies revealed bacterial growth in 18 out of 20 patients with lymphocytic colitis mostly Escherichia coli (14/18), which was found in all rectosigmoid specimens (14/14), but only in 8/14 and 6/14 of splenic and hepatic flexure specimens respectively. In two of these cases, E coli was associated with proteus. Proteus was found only in one case, Klebsiella in two cases, and Staphylococcus aureus in one case. In the control group, only 2 out of 10 controls showed the growth of E coli in their biopsy cultures. Histopathology showed rod-shaped bacilli in the tissue sections of 12 out of 14 cases with positive E coli in their specimen's culture. None of the controls showed these bacteria in histopathological sections. CONCLUSION: This preliminary study reports an association between E coli and lymphocytic colitis, based on histological and culture observations. Serotyping and molecular studies are in process to assess the role of E coli in the pathogenesis of lymphocytic colitis.  (+info)

Microscopic colitis: an unfamiliar but treatable disease. (4/21)

Chronic diarrhoea is a frequent complaint in clinical practice. Microscopic colitis is the cause of this symptom in 10% of these cases and the prevalence is rising. To exclude microscopic colitis a colonoscopy with multiple biopsies of different regions of the colon is mandatory. A sigmoidoscopy alone is insufficient. Two histopathological types of microscopic colitis can be distinguished: collagenous colitis and lymphocytic colitis. Nowadays, there is sufficient evidence to recommend budesonide as the first-choice treatment. Bismuth can also be recommended, but this drug is not easily available in the Netherlands. Evidence of efficacy of other drugs is scant.  (+info)

Microscopic colitis: a review for the surgical endoscopist. (7/21)

Microscopic colitis (MC) is an inflammatory condition of the colon distinct from Crohn disease or ulcerative colitis that can cause chronic diarrhea as well as cramping and bloating. Although it was first described 30 years ago, awareness of this entity as a cause of diarrhea has only become more widespread recently. Up to 20% of adults with chronic diarrhea who have an endoscopically normal colonoscopy may have MC. Endoscopic and radiological examinations are usually normal, but histology reveals increased lymphocytes in the colonic mucosa, which typically cause watery nonbloody diarrhea. Treatment is initially supportive but can include corticosteroids and immunomodulatory therapy for resistant cases. Since surgeons perform a large number of colonoscopies and sigmoidoscopies to assess diarrhea, it is important to be aware of this disease and to look for it with mucosal biopsy in appropriate patients.  (+info)

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 ...
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...
I avoid putting my treatment in my signature for a few reasons. One of the bigger ones is because I have Lymphocytic Colitis, not Crohns disease or Ulcerative Colitis. While LC is a form of IBD, if my disease is mismanaged, its not going to lead to a whole host of very bad complications. Many people dont understand the difference between LC and CD/UC, especially new people, and I dont want to mislead them into thinking what Im doing might be right for them. What Im doing may be good supplemental treatment for people with UC or CD, but I definitely dont believe it should be the entire treatment ...

SS-31 Is a Novel Mitochondrial-Targeted Therapy That Crosses Blood-Brain BarrierMitochondria play a vital role in cellular metabolism. Because of their widespread effects on cellular functions, mitochondrial dysfunction is implicated in a wide range of diseases. As such, mitochondria, the tiny energy factories found in most cells, are prime targets for drug development. But developing mitochondria-targeted drugs has been a daunting task.Diane Felsen, PhD, is Associate Professor of Pharmacology Research in Urology at Weill Cornell Medicine, where she is Co-Director-together with Dix P.

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, ...
The colorectal biopsy specimens from 30 patients with chronic watery diarrhoea but normal endoscopic and radiographic findings were studied by light microscopy, morphometry, immunohistochemistry, and two patients with electron microscopy. The histological changes in the colorectum were originally diagnosed in six patients as lymphocytic colitis and in 24 patients as collagenous colitis. The analysis of the specimens for this study could delineate three distinct groups of microscopic colitis: lymphocytic colitis (six patients), collagenous colitis without lymphocytic attack on the surface epithelium (seven patients), and a mixed form presenting with both thickening of the collagen plate and increased number of intraepithelial lymphocytes (17 patients). No transformation was seen from one type to another during follow up of six patients for four to seven years. Increased numbers of active pericryptal myofibroblasts were found with the electron microscope in one patient with mixed microscopic ...
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. ...

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 ...

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.

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.

It also offers suggestions as to how to separate the IBDs from other chronic colitides, such as lymphocytic colitis, collagenous colitis, diverticular disease -associated colitis, diversion colit...
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 ...
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.
The histopathologic features of collagenous colitis were studied in 14 women and one man. All but one patient presented with chronic watery diarrhea; 10 had a history of... ...
Anemia and fecal blood positive test were found in 2 pts and 3 pts, respectively. Gastroscopy revealed mucosal gastritis in 4 pts, esophagitis in 1 and duodenitis in 1 pts. Histological findings showed a chronic inflammation of the stomach and duodenum in 6 pts (66%) but inconsistent with celiac disease. Macroscopic mucosal abnormalities (aphtoid ulcerations and loss of vascular pattern) were found in 1 pts (11%) at colonoscopy and a LNH in the terminal ileum in 4 pts. (44%) Microscopic colitis with intraepithelial lymphocytes and eosinophils infiltrations, mucosal atrophy and follicular hyperplasia was histologically present in all the pts (100%) whereas a chronic inflammation with iperemia and villous shortening of the terminal ileum was shown in 6 (66%) pts. The wireless capsule revealed areas of bleeding or patchy erythema, mucosal erosions and ulcers in both jejunum and ileum in 1 patients whereas a particular chronic jejunum and ileal erosive pattern was evident in the other two ...

Background: In patients with the III stage of lung cancer (LC) performing of typical operations difficult or it is impossible. In such cases performing of combined operations that is one-stage resection of a lung with the next organs or tissues.. Aims: To study results of combined operations in LC patients.. Materials and methods: 4285 patients with LC were operated. The combined operations were performed in 429 patients (10%). Age varied from 40 to 60 years. M - 388 and f - 41. Squamous cell carcinoma was in 77,1% and adenocarcinoma - in 13,6% of patients. Other patients had adenokistozny cancer, sarcoma and undifferentiated cancer. The vast majority of patients operated with the III stage of LC (79,4%).. All operations divided into three types: vascular-atrial, tracheo-bronchial and parietal-diaphragmatic.. I type of operations was in 140 patients (32,6%), II type - 183 patients (42,7%) and III type - 106 patients (24,7%). The combined operations were accompanied by higher rates of ...
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 ...

A 57-year-old woman presented in 2007 with a multiple-year history of severe intermittent diarrhea with fecal incontinence. Initial laboratory evaluation for infectious, inflammatory, and malabsorptive conditions was negative. Colonoscopy with mucosal biopsy was performed, leading to a diagnosis of lymphocytic colitis.. A treatment attempt with standard-dose mesalamine was unsuccessful, but treatment with budesonide restored her digestive health. She was maintained on 9 mg daily, but efforts to lower the dose were unsuccessful. In 2010 she underwent a laparoscopic adjustable gastric band placement and lost approximately 13.5 kg in weight. In 2013 she started gaining weight, noticed easy bruising of her forearms, and developed muscle cramps, lightheadedness, and fatigue. In September 2014 it was thought that she might have iatrogenic Cushings syndrome, and budesonide was decreased to 3 mg daily. This resulted in prompt recurrence of 30-40 Bristol type 6-7 stool evacuations per week with several ...
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. ...

Penn State IBD Center provides quality care for patients affected by Crohns disease, ulcerative colitis, and microscopic colitis.
IBS is a syndrome, with an unknown cause and is only to be given as a diagnose after ruling out other more serious diseases. IBD is a group of diseases related to the intestines. Crohns, Ulcerative Colitis and Microscopic colitis are the most common. I strongly urge you to go back and ask to have one done. If he doesnt agree, then you need to find a new doctor. I have mild Crohns disease and I have never had a bloody stool ever. I have between 2-5 bowel movements a day, and these are not always loose even tho they are not formed like a normal bowel movement. I actually have more problems with constipation. You should aslo ask for a feCal test to determine if you have any kind of paracites, bacteria or blood in your stool (sometimes you can bleed without seeing it). You should aslo ask to be tested for celiac disease (gluten intolerance) lactose intolerance (this is where you have trouble digesting the sugar in milk), since this could also be your problem. If you have any kind of joint pain or ...

The ability of eukaryotic cells to change their shape and to migrate directionally is highly dependent on active volume regulation in cells building up tissues as well as in individual cells. Transmembrane fluxes of water via specialized water channels, called aquaporins (AQPs), facilitate the changes of volume and shape, which additionally require a complex interplay between the plasma membrane and the cytoskeleton. AQPs have been shown to be involved in the development of inflammatory processes and diseases. The aims of the studies underlying this thesis were to further elucidate the expression and function of AQPs in both bacterial and viral infections as well as in the inflammatory disease, microscopic colitis. For this, molecular techniques qPCR, immunoblotting and live, holographic, confocal and super-resolution imaging were used.. When cells of the innate immune system encounter pathogens they need to respond and prepare for migration and phagocytosis and do so through volume regulatory ...
