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.

Microscopic colitis: prevalence and distribution throughout the colon in patients with chronic diarrhoea. (1/36)

BACKGROUND: Microscopic colitis presents with chronic diarrhoea with or without abdominal pain. Microscopic colitis is an important cause of chronic diarrhoea. It can be distributed throughout the colon, as well as limited to the right colon. Microscopic colitis is associated with coeliac disease. We studied the prevalence and distribution of microscopic colitis in patients with diarrhoea and normal colonoscopy and we studied the association with coeliac disease. METHODS: Colonoscopy was performed. Biopsies were taken from every segment of the colon. Lymphocytic colitis was defined as the presence of more than 20 lymphocytes per 100 epithelial cells and collagenous colitis was defined as thickening of the basal membrane of more than 10 microm. Upper endoscopy was performed if upper intestinal symptoms were present. If this was the case, small bowel biopsies were taken. RESULTS: Microscopic colitis was found in 13 out of 103 patients. The distribution was diffuse throughout the colon in ten and restricted to the right colon in three patients. In seven patients, upper endoscopy was performed. Marsh I/II lesions were found in six out of seven patients. CONCLUSION: Microscopic colitis was limited to the right colon in 23% of patients. Biopsies of macroscopically normal colonic mucosa in patients with diarrhoea is mandatory.  (+info)

Review article: drug-induced microscopic colitis - proposal for a scoring system and review of the literature. (2/36)

The pathophysiology of microscopic colitis is unknown, although it is thought to be because of an abnormal immune reaction to luminal antigens in predisposed hosts. Specific antigens have not been proved, although various infectious triggers and drugs have been proposed. The responsibility of several drugs has been questioned, some with strong clinical and/or histological evidence suggesting causality. The issue of drug-induced microscopic colitis is important because of the burden of this disease. Thus, any case that can be cured by withdrawal of a drug must be identified. In this report, we propose a scoring system for drug-induced microscopic colitis, adapting existing criteria of drug causality, and review the literature using this framework. Based on this review, several drugs are identified with intermediate or high likelihood of inducing microscopic colitis. Finally, we suggest how to treat individual patients suspected of having drug-induced colitis according to the level of evidence for that particular drug.  (+info)

Mechanism of diarrhea in microscopic colitis. (3/36)

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)

Systematic review: microscopic colitis. (4/36)

BACKGROUND: Collagenous and lymphocytic colitis are fairly common causes of chronic non-bloody diarrhoea, especially in elderly female. AIM: To present a systematic review of microscopic colitis. METHODS: A PubMed search using the MeSH terms microscopic colitis, collagenous colitis, lymphocytic colitis and chronic diarrhoea was performed. RESULTS: Annual incidence of each disorder is 4-6/100,000 inhabitants. The aetiology is unknown. Clinical characteristics are well described and there is an association with autoimmune diseases. Budesonide is the best-documented short-term treatment of collagenous colitis. In meta-analysis pooled odds ratio for clinical response after 6-8 weeks of treatment was 12.3 (95% CI: 5.5-27.5) in comparison with placebo. The evidence for bismuth subsalicylate is weaker and the effectiveness of other alternatives such as loperamide, cholestyramine, aminosalicylates, probiotics, or Boswellia serrata extract is unknown. Although unproven, in unresponsive severe disease azathioprine or methotrexate may be tried. No controlled trials have been carried out in lymphocytic colitis. The long-term prognosis of microscopic colitis is good, serious complications are rare and there is no increased mortality. CONCLUSIONS: Clinical and epidemiological aspects of microscopic colitis are well described. Budesonide is the best-documented short-term therapy in collagenous colitis, but the optimal long-term strategy needs further study. Controlled treatment data of lymphocytic colitis are awaited for.  (+info)

Microscopic colitis demonstrates a T helper cell type 1 mucosal cytokine profile. (5/36)

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)

The epidemiology of microscopic colitis: a population based study in Olmsted County, Minnesota. (6/36)

OBJECTIVE: Although the epidemiology of microscopic colitis has been described in Europe, no such data exist from North America. We studied the incidence, prevalence and temporal trends of microscopic colitis in a geographically defined US population. DESIGN AND SETTING: In this population based cohort study, residents of Olmsted County, Minnesota, with a new diagnosis of microscopic colitis, and all who had colon biopsies for evaluation of diarrhoea, between 1 January 1985 and 31 December 2001 were identified. Biopsies were reviewed for confirmation (cases) and to identify missed cases (diarrhoea biopsies). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Incidence rates, age and sex adjusted to the 2000 US white population. Poisson regression assessed the association of calendar period, age and sex with incidence. RESULTS: We identified 130 incident cases for an overall rate of 8.6 cases per 100,000 person-years. There was a significant secular trend, with incidence increasing from 1.1 per 100,000 early in the study to 19.6 per 100,000 by the end (p<0.001). Rates increased with age (p<0.001). By subtype, the incidence was 3.1 per 100,000 for collagenous colitis and 5.5 per 100,000 for lymphocytic colitis. Collagenous colitis was associated with female sex (p<0.001) but lymphocytic colitis was not. Prevalence (per 100,000 persons) on 31 December 2001 was 103.0 (39.3 for collagenous colitis and 63.7 for lymphocytic colitis). CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of microscopic colitis has increased significantly over time, and by the end of the study, the incidence and prevalence were significantly higher than reported previously. Microscopic colitis is associated with older age, and collagenous colitis is associated with female sex.  (+info)

Microscopic colitis with granuloma which responded to steroid therapy. (7/36)

We present a patient with chronic watery diarrhea and weight loss, in whom colonoscopic findings were consistent with microscopic colitis, but histopathological examination revealed granulomatous inflammation. A 67-year-old Japanese female with a several year history of chronic watery diarrhea and body weight loss was admitted to our hospital. Her laboratory data showed hypoalbuminemia and high levels of serum immunoglobulin G and C-reactive protein. Colonoscopic findings were grossly normal. Histopathology showed inflammatory cell infiltrates with non-necrotizing granulomas and multinucleated giant cells, indicating that this was not conventional microscopic colitis, lymphocytic colitis or collagenous colitis. After treatment with prednisolone her symptoms and laboratory data improved dramatically, and she went into remission without the necessity of further steroid treatment.  (+info)

Prevalence of microscopic colitis in patients with diarrhea of unknown etiology in Turkey. (8/36)

AIM: To investigate the prevalence and demography of microscopic colitis in patients with diarrhea of unknown etiology and normal colonoscopy in Turkey. METHODS: Between March, 1998 to July, 2005, 129 patients with chronic non-bloody diarrhea of unexplained etiology who had undergone full colonoscopy with no obvious abnormalities were included in the study. Two biopsies were obtained from all colonic segments and terminal ileum for diagnosis of microscopic colitis. On histopathologic examination, criteria for lymphocytic colitis (intraepithelial lymphocyte >or= 20 per 100 intercryptal epithelial cells, change in surface epithelium, mononuclear infiltration of the lamina propria) and collagenous colitis (subepithelial collagen band thickness >or= 10 microm) were explored. RESULTS: Lymphocytic colitis was diagnosed in 12 (9%) patients (Female/Male: 7/5, mean age: 45 year, range: 27-63) and collagenous colitis was diagnosed in only 3 (2.5%) patients (all female, mean age: 60 years, range: 54-65). CONCLUSION: Biopsy of Turkish patients with the diagnosis of chronic non-bloody diarrhea of unexplained etiology and normal colonoscopic findings will reveal microscopic colitis in approximately 10% of the patients. Lymphocytic colitis is 4 times more frequent than collagenous colitis in these patients.  (+info)

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 ...
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 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. ...

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. ...
Care guide for Microscopic Colitis. Includes: possible causes, signs and symptoms, standard treatment options and means of care and support.
The Microscopic Colitis GUIDELINES Pocket Card is endorsed by the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) and was developed with their collaboration.
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? ...
Hi everyone out there with Lymphocytic Colitis or Collagenous Colitis and chronic diarrhea. I was curious if any of you had tried psyllium husk to see if it helped with the chronic D? I know many people here with Crohns Disease have had a lot of success with it. I dont have chronic D otherwise Id try it. If you havent tried, it, it may be something to discuss trying with your doctor. Psyllium is OTC but I think keeping your doctor in the loop is always a good idea ...
I was diagnosed 3/16/2012 with MC (collagenous). Before becoming ill in December 2011 I was very active with outdoor sports as well. Even though I am a woman, I dont like hearing its an old womans disease either. I have started Entocort 9 mgs a day and am having my food sensitivities tested by EnteroLab. Eating gluten free and dairy free helped eliminate the D put I still have a lot of bloating and pain in my left side and lower abdomen. I started relying on ibuprohen when I occassionally experienced rectal spasms about 5 years ago. Of course I am no longer taking that. I also started having night stools and have found out that is common in MC. Some people think its because of food sensitivities. My Dr. at the U is great and attentive but doesnt think that diet is involved. Were hoping that 3-4 weeks of the steroid will create a reversal and send me into remission. Then I should be able to reintroduce gluten, then dairy. I have also stopped drinking caffeine and alcohol. After 4 days of ...
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 ...

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.

The investigative team reported that rates at which biopsy specimens were obtained differed among the sites where colonoscopy was performed.. The team obtained biopsy specimens from more patients undergoing colonoscopy in university-affiliated settings (87%) compared with Veterans Affairs Medical Centers (79%) or community sites (77%).. On multivariate analysis, biopsy specimens were more likely to be obtained in younger patients less than 50 years, women patients, in community settings and in Veterans Affairs Medical Centers setting.. The researchers also found that biopsy specimens were more likely to be obtained in patients seen in university-affiliated medical centers as opposed to community settings.. Dr Harewood concludes, Biopsy specimens are obtained in 80% of patients with diarrhea and normal colonoscopy findings to exclude microscopic colitis. Variation in biopsy practice exists among endoscopy site types and by gender and clear guidelines are needed for the endoscopic approach to ...
Learn about the types of colitis, an inflammation of the inner lining of the colon causing rectal bleeding, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and abdominal spasms. Colitis is caused by a variety of diseases and infections (Crohns disease, ulcerative colitis, microscopic colitis, C. difficile).
I just started the Pepto treatment after giving up on it 4 months ago. Thank goodness for Pepto tablets instead of chewables! I probably had mild post-infectious IBS for 10 years, which developed into microscopic colitis (dxd last summer). My doc wanted me to take Asacol but I declined and pursued food sensitivity testing instead. Patch tests were inconclusive, so I did Enterolab testing and discovered significant gluten sensitivity, and possible dairy, yeast and soy sensitivity (low titers). I went gluten/dairy-free 45 days ago and havent felt this good in 10 years!! No more bloating and indigestion (I looked 4 months pregnant all the time and my abdomen is flat now!), better mood, no cramping, no feelings of anxiety in my stomach. The diarrhea improved only 60% so far. Frequency and urgency are much improved (Im now going 1-3/day versus 4-6!). And I dont have that feeling that my gut is deperately trying to get rid of whatever it is I just ate. No more racing to the bathroom after meals. ...

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 ...

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 ...
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 ...

Perhaps the most important aspect of IBS is obtaining an accurate diagnosis which rules out other, immediately life threatening conditions. Other diagnoses include colon cancer, colitis (such as Crohns disease, ulcerative colitis, microscopic colitis, or eosinophilic colitis), celiac disease, lactose intolerance, carcinoid syndrome or various endocrine disorders such as thyroid disease may be to blame. These entities must be excluded prior to labeling someone as having IBS. This need for an accurate diagnosis is where patients can use the help of a proctologist. Colon and rectal physicians are specifically trained to evaluate their patients for a wide variety of illness that can affect the GI tract. And diagnosis is the first step down the path to symptomatic control. There is not a cure for IBS yet. However, symptoms can be controlled.. ...
