A chronic transmural inflammation that may involve any part of the DIGESTIVE TRACT from MOUTH to ANUS, mostly found in the ILEUM, the CECUM, and the COLON. In Crohn disease, the inflammation, extending through the intestinal wall from the MUCOSA to the serosa, is characteristically asymmetric and segmental. Epithelioid GRANULOMAS may be seen in some patients.
A NOD signaling adaptor protein that contains two C-terminal leucine-rich domains which recognize bacterial PEPTIDOGLYCAN. It signals via an N-terminal capase recruitment domain that interacts with other CARD SIGNALING ADAPTOR PROTEINS such as RIP SERINE-THEONINE KINASES. The protein plays a role in the host defense response by signaling the activation of CASPASES and the MAP KINASE SIGNALING SYSTEM. Mutations of the gene encoding the nucleotide oligomerization domain 2 protein have been associated with increased susceptibility to CROHN DISEASE.

Histocompatibility antigens in inflammatory bowel disease. Their clinical significance and their association with arthropathy with special reference to HLA-B27 (W27). (1/3713)

Histocompatibility (HLA) antigen phenotypes have been studied in 100 patients with ulcerative colitis, 100 with Crohn's disease, and 283 normal controls. In addition the incidence of ankylosing spondylitis, sacroiliitis, and "enteropathic" peripheral arthropathy was determined in the patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). There was no significant difference in antigen frequency between patients and controls. However, the incidence of HLA-B27 was increased in the patients complicated by ankylosing spondylitis and/or sacroiliitis in both ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. In contrast, none of the 29 IBD patients with "enteropathic" peripheral arthropathy had B27 antigen. Furthermore, ankylosing spondylitis was found more frequently in ulcerative colitis bearing HLA-B27 compared with non-B27 patients (P less than 0-01). The same was found in Crohn's disease, although this difference was not statistically significant. In addition, 12 of 14 ulcerative colitis patients and five out of six Crohn's patients with HLA-B27 had total colitis, compared with the frequency of total colitis in non-B27 patients (P less than 0-024 and less than 0-03 respectively). The data suggest that B27 histocompatibility antigen could be a pathogenetic discriminator between the arthropathies in IBD and may be of prognostic significance with respect to extension and severity of the disease.  (+info)

Expression of nitric oxide synthase in inflammatory bowel disease is not affected by corticosteroid treatment. (2/3713)

AIM: To examine the effect of corticosteroid treatment on the expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in the colon of patients with inflammatory bowel disease. METHODS: Four groups of patients were studied: (1) ulcerative colitis treated with high dose corticosteroids (six patients, 10 blocks); (2) ulcerative colitis patients who had never received corticosteroids (10 patients, 16 blocks); (3) Crohn's disease treated with high dose corticosteroids (12 patients, 24 blocks); (4) Non-inflammatory, non-neoplastic controls (four patients, six blocks). Full thickness paraffin sections of colons removed at surgery were immunostained with an antibody raised against the C terminal end of iNOS. Sections were assessed semiquantitatively for the presence and degree of inflammation and immunoreactivity for nitric oxide synthase. RESULTS: Cases of ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease with active inflammation showed strong staining for nitric oxide synthase. The staining was diffuse in ulcerative colitis and patchy in Crohn's disease, in accordance with the distribution of active inflammation. Staining was seen in epithelial cells and was most intense near areas of inflammation such as crypt abscesses. Non-inflamed epithelium showed no immunoreactivity. Treatment with corticosteroids made no difference to the amount of nitric oxide synthase. CONCLUSIONS: Expression of nitric oxide synthase is increased in both ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease and appears to be unaffected by treatment with corticosteroids. Disease severity necessitated surgery in all the cases included in this study, regardless of whether or not the patients had received long term corticosteroid treatment. It seems therefore that a high level of iNOS expression and, presumably, production of nitric oxide characterise cases which are refractory to clinical treatment; this suggests that specific inhibition of the enzyme may be a useful therapeutic adjunct.  (+info)

Biased JH usage in plasma cell immunoglobulin gene sequences from colonic mucosa in ulcerative colitis but not in Crohn's disease. (3/3713)

BACKGROUND: Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory disease of the colonic and rectal mucosa. Autoantibodies have been observed in ulcerative colitis which may have a role in the pathogenesis of the disease. Evidence also suggests that there is an hereditary predisposition towards the disease, although no individual genes have been identified. AIMS: This is a pilot study of immunoglobulin heavy chain genes (IgH) in ulcerative colitis to determine whether they have any particular genetic characteristics which may lead to a better understanding of the disease aetiology. SUBJECTS: Colonic or rectal tissue was obtained from five children with ulcerative colitis. Tissue was also obtained from five children with Crohn's disease and five children who did not have inflammatory bowel disease as controls. METHODS: B cells and IgD+ B cells were identified by immunohistochemistry on frozen sections. Areas of lamina propria containing plasma cells, and areas of IgD+ B cells were microdissected. The immunoglobulin genes were PCR amplified, cloned, and sequenced. Sequences were analysed for content of somatic mutations and composition of heavy chain. RESULTS: An increase in the use of JH6 and DXP'1, and a decrease in the use of JH4, gene segments in immunoglobulin genes from lamina propria plasma cells, and from virgin IgD+ B cells, was found in patients with ulcerative colitis. These biases were not present in the control groups. CONCLUSIONS: There is a fundamental difference in the immunoglobulin genes from patients with ulcerative colitis. Whether this is caused by a difference in content of immunoglobulin gene segments in the germline or a difference in the recombination mechanism is not known.  (+info)

A genomewide analysis provides evidence for novel linkages in inflammatory bowel disease in a large European cohort. (4/3713)

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is characterized by a chronic relapsing intestinal inflammation, typically starting in early adulthood. IBD is subdivided into two subtypes, on the basis of clinical and histologic features: Crohn disease and ulcerative colitis (UC). Previous genomewide searches identified regions harboring susceptibility loci on chromosomes 1, 3, 4, 7, 12, and 16. To expand our understanding of the genetic risk profile, we performed a 9-cM genomewide search for susceptibility loci in 268 families containing 353 affected sibling pairs. Previous linkages on chromosomes 12 and 16 were replicated, and the chromosome 4 linkage was extended in this sample. New suggestive evidence for autosomal linkages was observed on chromosomes 1, 6, 10, and 22, with LOD scores of 2.08, 2.07, 2.30, and 1.52, respectively. A maximum LOD score of 1.76 was observed on the X chromosome, for UC, which is consistent with the clinical association of IBD with Ullrich-Turner syndrome. The linkage finding on chromosome 6p is of interest, given the possible contribution of human leukocyte antigen and tumor necrosis-factor genes in IBD. This genomewide linkage scan, done with a large family cohort, has confirmed three previous IBD linkages and has provided evidence for five additional regions that may harbor IBD predisposition genes.  (+info)

Linkage of Crohn's disease to the major histocompatibility complex region is detected by multiple non-parametric analyses. (5/3713)

BACKGROUND: There is evidence for genetic susceptibility to Crohn's disease, and a tentative association with tumour necrosis factor (TNF) and HLA class II alleles. AIMS: To examine the potential of genetic linkage between Crohn's disease and the MHC region on chromosome 6p. METHODS: TNF microsatellite markers and, for some families, additional HLA antigens were typed for 323 individuals from 49 Crohn's disease multiplex families to generate informative haplotypes. Non-parametric linkage analysis methods, including sib pair and affected relative pair methods, were used. RESULTS: Increased sharing of haplotypes was observed in affected sib pairs: 92% (48/52) shared one or two haplotypes versus an expected 75% if linkage did not exist (p=0.004). After other affected relative pairs were included, the significance level reached 0.001. The mean proportion of haplotype sharing was increased for both concordant affected (pi=0.60, p=0.002) and unaffected sib pairs (pi=0.58, p=0. 031) compared with the expected value (pi=0.5). In contrast, sharing in discordant sib pairs was significantly decreased (pi=0.42, p=0. 007). Linear regression analysis using all three types of sib pairs yielded a slope of -0.38 at p=0.00003. It seemed that the HLA effect was stronger in non-Jewish families than in Jewish families. CONCLUSIONS: All available analytical methods support linkage of Crohn's disease to the MHC region in these Crohn's disease families. This region is estimated to contribute approximately 10-33% of the total genetic risk to Crohn's disease.  (+info)

Antigen-specific B-cell unresponsiveness induced by chronic Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis infection of cattle. (6/3713)

Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis infection of cattle results in a chronic granulomatous enteritis. Clinical disease (i.e., cachexia, diarrhea, and high fecal bacterial counts) is preceded by a lengthy subclinical stage of disease. The immunologic mechanisms associated with the progression of infected cattle from subclinical to clinical disease are unclear. In this study, a cell proliferation assay was used in combination with flow cytometry to compare peripheral blood lymphocyte responses of cattle with subclinical paratuberculosis to responses of cattle with clinical paratuberculosis. B cells from cattle with subclinical disease proliferated vigorously upon stimulation with M. avium subsp. paratuberculosis antigen, with up to 12.4% of the total B cells responding. However, B cells from cattle with clinical disease did not proliferate upon antigen stimulation despite good proliferation in response to concanavalin A stimulation. In addition, these animals had high percentages of peripheral blood B cells. B cells from noninfected animals did not proliferate upon M. avium subsp. paratuberculosis antigen stimulation. Thus, it appears that B-cell proliferation is a sensitive indicator of subclinical Johne's disease. Furthermore, the immunologic mechanisms responsible for the antigen-specific unresponsiveness of peripheral blood B cells may be significant in the eventual progression from subclinical to clinical Johne's disease in cattle.  (+info)

Secretion imbalance between tumour necrosis factor and its inhibitor in inflammatory bowel disease. (7/3713)

BACKGROUND: Tumour necrosis factor (TNF) alpha and TNF-beta are soluble ligands binding to TNF receptors with similar activities; soluble TNF receptors neutralise TNF activity by acting as inhibitors. Little is known about the cytokine/soluble receptor role in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). AIMS: To test the hypothesis that an imbalance in secretion between TNF and TNF inhibitors plays a role in gut inflammation in patients with IBD. METHODS: The secretion of TNF-alpha, TNF-beta, and soluble TNF receptors was compared in the culture supernatants of colonic biopsy specimens and isolated lamina propria mononuclear cells from patients with active colonic IBD. RESULTS: Spontaneous secretion of TNF-alpha in involved IBD mucosa was higher than in normal control and self limited colitis mucosa. Secretion of TNF-beta was higher in patients with Crohn's disease than in those with ulcerative colitis. Soluble TNF receptor in IBD mucosa inhibited TNF activity. Type 2 soluble receptor release from IBD mucosa was increased in active inflammation; release from lamina propria cells was not increased. Mucosal TNF-alpha production correlated with severity of disease. CONCLUSIONS: Results showed enhanced secretion of TNF-alpha but failure to release enhanced amounts of soluble TNF receptor in lamina propria mononuclear cells of patients with IBD. An imbalance in secretion between TNF and TNF inhibitor may be implicated in the pathogenesis of IBD.  (+info)

Analysis of MHC class II DP, DQ and DR alleles in Crohn's disease. (8/3713)

BACKGROUND: Although inflammation in Crohn's disease is believed to be mediated by activated T cells, genotyping of all MHC class II alleles in white people with this disease has not been reported. AIMS: To perform a detailed molecular analysis of HLA DPB, DQB, and DRB genes in white patients with Crohn's disease and controls in order to determine if the inheritance of any class II genes confers susceptibility or resistance to this disease. METHODS: Complete molecular typing of HLA class II DPB, DQB, and DRB alleles was performed in 58 white patients with Crohn's disease and 93 healthy controls using a polymerase chain reaction-sequence specific oligonucleotide based approach. RESULTS: No significant association with any DPB or DQB alleles was noted in patients with Crohn's disease. Since our previous studies had shown a strong association of an HLA DRB3*0301/DRB1*1302 haplotype with Crohn's disease, we re-examined this association using more stringent genotyping criteria. This haplotype was present in 20.7% of patients and 5.4% of controls (p = 0.0066; relative risk = 4.59). CONCLUSIONS: The DRB3*0301/DRB1*1302 haplotype is the only significant MHC class II association noted in white people with Crohn's disease and represents the strongest association of any MHC or non-MHC locus with this disease.  (+info)

Practical and objective instruments to assess pediatric Crohns disease (CD) activity are required for observational research and quality improvement. The objectives were: 1) to determine the feasibility of completing the Pediatric Crohns Disease Activity Index (PCDAI) and the Abbreviated PCDAI (APCDAI); and 2) to create a Short PCDAI by retaining and reweighting the most practical and informative components.
Dr R M Beattie, Consultant Paediatric Gastroenterologist, Southampton NHS University Hospitals Trust, UK told the audience that many young patients diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease are so under-nourished that they actually fulfil the WHO criteria for malnutrition and that 85% of paediatric Crohns disease patients present with some level of nutritional impairment, which will impact on their long-term growth. Enteral nutrition, Dr Beattie explained has been found to have a beneficial effect in the short term on weight, height and other markers of nutritional status but is not suitable for all patients. However, even partial enteral nutrition leads to improved outcomes and reduced dependency on other treatments. Nutritional support is an important part of the management of Crohns disease but this should be a dynamic process. During recovery, energy needs increase and provide the opportunity to catch up on growth. Meticulous attention to nutritional needs is likely to optimise disease ...

Aim: Paediatric Crohns disease (CD) is associated with growth delay and poor nutritional status. Maintenance enteral nutrition (MEN) supplementation is a potential adjunct to improve growth/prolong remission. Methods: Newly diagnosed CD patients were identified. Anthropometry, treatments and outcomes were collected for 12 months following diagnosis. Data are presented as medians. Results: A total of 102 patients were identified (age = 13 years, 76% male), 58 (57%) completed exclusive enteral nutrition (EEN) as induction therapy, and 77 (75%) entered clinical remission. Following induction, 58 (57%) of all patients continued MEN and 44 (43%) consumed normal diet (ND). BMI Z-score increased (diagnosis-12 months) for EEN (−1.41 to −0.21 (p = ,0.0001)) and steroid groups (−0.97 to −0.11 (p = 0.001)). BMI Z-score increased (post induction - 12 months) for MEN (−0.62 to −0.44 (p = 0.04)) but not ND (−0.33 to −0.4 (p = 0.79)). Height Z-score did not increase for any treatment group ...

Objectives: Autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) with CD34+ cell selection has recently been used in the treatment of refractory Crohns disease, showing good safety and promising efficacy. We investigated the safety and efficacy of HSCT with unselected peripheral blood stem cells (PBSCs) in moderate-severe refractory Crohns disease.. Patients: Four patients (three male, one female; age range 26-45 years) with active moderate-severe Crohns disease (median Crohns Disease Activity Index (CDAI) 319, range 272-345), refractory or intolerant to multiple drugs including infliximab, were enrolled.. Interventions: Unselected PBSCs were collected after mobilisation with cyclophosphamide (CTX) 1.5 g/m2 and granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) 10 μg/kg. The conditioning regimen included CTX 50 mg/kg on days −5 to −2 and rabbit anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG) 2.5 mg/kg on days −4 to −2.. Main outcome measures: Primary endpoints were toxicity and clinical remission ...

Data on histologic correlates of CTE findings are lacking. We aimed to compare CTE findings with histology from surgically resected specimens. We tested the hypothesis that CTE findings can distinguish tissue inflammation from fibrosis. Methods: Patients who underwent CTE within 3 months before intestinal resection for CD were retrospectively studied. Radiologists blinded to history and ...

with great interest. We agree that full visualisation and imaging of the entire length of the small bowel is unsatisfactory at present and that capsule endoscopy (CE) is a novel technique and can be considered as a promising new approach for the diagnosis of obscure disease located in the small bowel.. The authors diagnosed Crohns disease (CD) in 12 of 17 patients with clinically suspected CD according to the findings of CE. The authors state that the majority of diagnostic lesions were located in the distal ileum. At least one colonoscopy had been performed prior to CE in 15 of 17 patients. Unfortunately, the investigators do not report whether or not they were able to explore the terminal ileum in all of these patients. Hence the important question arises of which endoscopic and histological findings had been observed in the terminal ileum of these 15 study patients prior to CE, and whether this clinical information may have affected the interpretation of the CE findings in this ...
Computed tomography and magnetic resonance enterography have become routine small bowel imaging tests to evaluate patients with established or suspected Crohns disease, but the interpretation and use of these imaging modalities can vary widely. A shared understanding of imaging findings, nomenclature, and utilization will improve the utility of these imaging techniques to guide treatment options, as well as assess for treatment response and complications. Representatives from the Society of Abdominal Radiology Crohns Disease-Focused Panel, the Society of Pediatric Radiology, the American Gastroenterological Association, and other experts, systematically evaluated evidence for imaging findings associated with small bowel Crohns disease enteric inflammation and established recommendations for the evaluation, interpretation, and use of computed tomography and magnetic resonance enterography in small bowel Crohns disease ...
Background: Small bowel Crohns disease (SBCD) is a chronic relapsing disease, and clinical presentation can vary considerably. Patients are frequently assessed by capsule endoscopy (CE), which enables direct visualization of small bowel mucosal abnormalities; however, the correlations between CE scoring index (CESI), biological markers, and disease activity indices remain undefined.. Methods: A prospective study was conducted between October 2008 and February 2011 on 58 established SBCD patients and suspected patients who received a definitive SBCD diagnosis during study. Patients underwent complete CE, and were scored according to the CESI (inactive, ,135; mild inflammation, 135-790; moderate-severe inflammation, ,790) and Harvey-Bradshaw index (HBI). Statistical correlation between CESI, HBI, C-reactive protein (CRP), serum albumin, and hemoglobin was assessed. At follow-up (~9 months), 11 of the patients underwent CE with scoring for CESI, HBI, and CRP. ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of TA-650 using Pediatric Crohns Disease Activity Index (PCDAI) and other evaluation indicators in pediatric patients with moderate to severe Crohns disease after TA-650 administration at a dose of 5 mg/kg at weeks 0, 2, and 6, then every 8 weeks after week 14 up to week 46, and at a dose of 10 mg/kg if the effect is attenuated. The safety and pharmacokinetics are also evaluated ...
A study of pediatric patients with Crohns disease has found that an imbalance in the normally diverse array of microorganisms that populate the intestines is more complex than previously thought, and that different treatments affect this imbalanced, or dysbiotic, intestinal microbiome in distinct ways. The findings may point to new avenues for the development of individualized microbial-targeted therapies for these patients. The research was led by researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, and appears in the October 14 edition of Cell Host and Microbe.. Crohns disease is a debilitating affliction for all patients and is estimated to affect up to 80,000 children in the US. Pediatric patients can suffer additional problems that include stunted growth and delayed puberty, making the identification of effective treatments even more vital. Because immunosuppressant drugs can cause serious side effects, there is great interest in developing new treatments ...

Results 93 patients (median age 16 years, range 2-20, 49 male) underwent SICUS; 58 had suspected and 35 established CD. In suspected CD, sensitivity and specificity of SICUS in detecting CD small bowel lesions were 81.82% and 100% and TUS 85.71% and 87.50%, respectively. In established CD, sensitivity and specificity of SICUS were 83.33% and 100% and TUS 80.00% and 100%, respectively. Agreement with ileocolonoscopy was fair for the presence of lesions (SICUS, κ=0.38, TUS, κ=0.31). Agreement between SICUS and ileocolonoscopy was good for detecting strictures (κ=0.66) with a sensitivity of 100% and specificity of 97.62%. Comparing SICUS and TUS with MRE, agreement for the presence of lesions was κ=0.63 and 0.53, respectively. Agreement between SICUS and MRE was good for detecting strictures (κ=0.77) and fair for assessing dilatation (κ=0.45).. ...

Immune mechanisms, possibly involving cell-surface molecules such as CD44, have been invoked to explain the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease. We used monoclonal antibodies against epitopes encoded within the variable region of CD44 to investigate CD44 isoform expression in colon, small intestine, and liver in patients with various intestinal disorders and in controls. Biopsy samples from patients with ulcerative colitis showed significantly increased epithelial expression of CD44 isoforms containing the v6 and v3 epitopes, detected with antibodies 2F10 and 3G5, respectively. CD44v6 was detected on colonic crypt epithelial cells in 23 of 25 ulcerative colitis samples compared with 3 of 18 colonic Crohns disease samples (p = 3.0 x 10(-6); odds ratio 57.5 [95% CI 6.83-702]) and 3 of 52 controls (22 normal colon, 10 infective colitis, 2 radiation colitis, and 18 colonic Crohns disease; p | 1 x 10(-8); odds ratio 199 [25.5-2294]). No significant expression of CD44v6, CD44v3, or CD44v8/9 was found
Crohn disease (Crohn syndrome, regional enteritis, regional ileitis, terminal ileitis) is an inflammatory bowel disease, that can affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the anus. The exact etiology is unknown. Symptoms depend on what part of the gastrointestinal tract is affected. It primarily causes abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, low-grade fever and weight loss, but may also cause extraintestinal manifestations, usually involving the skin, joints, mouth, eyes, liver or bile ducts. Unpredictable flares and remissions characterize the long-term course of Crohn disease.… Crohn Disease: Read more about Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment, Complications, Causes and Prognosis.

The CTE method uses the oral intake of large volumes of neutral contrast agents and rapid intravenous administration of iodinated contrast to improve visualization of the small bowel wall and its mural features.16 Unlike VCE, which only looks at the luminal surface of the bowel, CTE shows the radiologist and gastroenterologist not only the mucosal surface, but also the mural features of the bowel wall, which can be extremely helpful in cases of Crohns disease or malignancy. While CTE is most commonly known for its role in the evaluation of small bowel Crohns disease, it has expanded to also have roles in the diagnosis of obscure gastrointestinal bleeding and in the detection of small bowel tumors. In regard to Crohns disease, the American College of Radiology Appropriateness Criteria rates CTE as the most appropriate radiologic method in ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Cerebral thrombosis associated with active Crohns disease.. AU - Calderón, R.. AU - Cruz-Correa, M. R.. AU - Torres, E. A.. PY - 1998. Y1 - 1998. N2 - An increased incidence of cerebral thromboembolic events has been reported in young patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It has been suggested that a hypercoagulable state is associated with clinical activity of the disease, with elevation of factors V, VIII, fibrinogen and platelets and a lowering of anti-thrombin III. We present the case of a 35 y/o male with refractory Crohns disease who complained of headaches, blurred vision and tonic-clonic seizures. The studies demonstrated an ischemic stroke of the left cerebral hemisphere, without vascular abnormalities. Elevation of factor VIII, platelets, and antithrombin III were found. The symptoms were relieved with medical treatment and the patient has continued in good health after resection of the diseased terminal ileum.. AB - An increased incidence of cerebral ...

However, few reports have addressed specific gastroduodenoscopic findings in Crohns disease patients. Methods: The gastroduodenoscopic findings of 63 Crohns disease patients were examined. Those of 62 ulcerative colitis and 63 age- and gender-matched gastroesophageal reflux disease patients were also reviewed as controls. Findings of bamboo-joint-like appearance, gastric antral erosions, and duodenal lesions were the specific findings that were highlighted. Results: Of 63 Crohns disease patients, 47 (75%) had at least one of the specific gastroduodenoscopic findings, and the prevalence of these findings was ...
In a study of patients with Crohns disease, cognitive response times were 10% slower than normal and significantly correlated with symptoms of active inflammation, including abdominal pain and fatigue. Notably, the response times in Crohns patients were slower than those assessed in people over the legal drink drive limit in most EU countries (blood alcohol content above 0.05 g/100ml) when assessed with the same computer-based cognitive test in a similar study by the same group. The results demonstrate the presence of mild cognitive impairment in Crohns patients and support patients frequent complaints of difficulties in concentration, clouding of thought and memory lapses. The study also demonstrated that Crohns patients had a higher median depression score and a poorer rating of sleep quality, which were associated with more severe cognitive impairment. Crohns disease, one of the two main forms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) alongside ulcerative colitis, has seen a sharp increase ...
Crohns disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease with unknown origin. This study investigates the combined use of surgery and immuno modulation in Crohns disease. The outcome of medication and surgery in 371 operations on 237 patients between 1989 and 2006 were evaluated. Moreover the effects of prednisolone, azathioprine and infliximab on the healing of colo-colonic anastomosis in 84 mice with or without colitis were evaluated.. The use of thiopurines after abdominal surgery in selected cases of severe Crohns disease was found to prolong the time to clinical relapse of the disease from 24 to 53 months. Patients on postoperative maintenance therapy with azathioprine had a decreased symptomatic load over time and needed fewer steroid courses.. The use of thiopurines was found to be a risk factor of anastomotic complications in abdominal surgery for Crohns disease together with pre-operative intra-abdominal sepsis and colo-colonic anastomosis. The risk for anastomotic complications ...
Ileal lesions in Crohns disease (CD) patients are colonized by pathogenic adherent-invasive Escherichia coli (AIEC) able to adhere to and invade intestinal epithelial cells (IEC), and to survive within macrophages. The interaction of AIEC with IEC depends on bacterial factors mainly type 1 pili, flagella, and outer membrane proteins. In humans, proteases can act as host defence mechanisms to counteract bacterial colonization. The protease meprin, composed of multimeric complexes of the two subunits alpha and beta, is abundantly expressed in IECs. Decreased levels of this protease correlate with the severity of the inflammation in patients with inflammatory bowel disease. The aim of the present study was to analyze the ability of meprin to modulate the interaction of AIEC with IECs. In patients with ileal CD we observed decreased levels of meprins, in particular that of meprin β. Dose-dependent inhibition of the abilities of AIEC strain LF82 to adhere to and invade intestinal epithelial T84 cells was
Ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohns disease together constitute inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The prevalence of UC is about 30-100 per 100,000 and 30-50 per 100,000 for Crohns disease. They characteristically present in young adults, but may present at any time of life, including childhood and old age, and a second peak of incidence is now recognised in the sixth decade of life. UC always affects the rectum and then progresses to a variable extent around the colon, but never extends into the small bowel. By contrast, Crohns disease may occur anywhere in the GI tract, from the mouth to the anus, with skip lesions - inflamed areas affected by Crohns disease - separated by areas of apparently normal mucosa. The ileocaecal region is the most common site. Crohns also frequently affects the colon, and can diffusely affect the small bowel. It rarely occurs in the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum. It is important that GPs have a high index of suspicion of IBD and initiate appropriate treatment ...

Exclusion criteria were rectal Crohn disease, sepsis, abscess, perforation or active fistula, ileostomy, or colostomy; resection of , 100 cm of the ileum; need for immediate surgery; diabetes mellitus; active peptic ulcer disease; clinically important renal, hepatic, or cardiovascular disease or asthma; pregnancy or lactation; or allergy to glucocorticoids or mesalamine ...
Inhibitors of tumor necrosis factor-α have revolutionized management of Crohn disease (1). Since the approval of infliximab, a monoclonal chimeric antibody, by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in August 1998 and the European Medicines Agency in August 1999, millions of patients have been treated with it for inflammatory disorders, including Crohn disease. This drug and subsequently marketed biologics have substantially changed therapy for these potentially debilitating disorders and have transformed treatment paradigms from focusing on symptom control only to also aiming to heal the mucosa and preserve intestinal function (2). However, the gains have come at a price. The cost of these patent-protected drugs has been high, and medical expenses for patients, health care providers, and society at large have increased considerably. The manufacturer of infliximab had an extraordinary commercial success, with worldwide sales of $9.3 billion in 2014, before the advent of biosimilars (biologics ...

Cimzia® has demonstrated a low incidence of injection site reactions and injection site pain in clinical trials. The most common reported adverse events in the pivotal studies were upper respiratory tract infection (cold, flu), urinary tract infection (bladder infection) and joint pain. As seen with the use of the other anti-TNFa agents, serious, but infrequent infections and malignancies have been reported ...
The team observed complicated behavior in 29% of children at diagnosis, and 59% at follow-up. Kaplan Meier survival estimates of the cumulative incidence of surgery were 20% at 3 years, and 34% at 5 years from diagnosis. Multivariate Cox models showed that both structuring behavior at diagnosis, and treatment with corticosteroids were associated with increased risk for surgery.. However, treatment with azathioprine was associated with decreased risk. Azathioprine was introduced earlier in the course of disease in patients not undergoing surgery than in patients requiring surgery. Dr Vernier Massouille s team concluded, Pediatric Crohns disease was characterized by frequent occurrence, with time, of a severe phenotype with extensive, complicated disease. Immunosuppressive therapy may improve the natural history of this disease and decrease the need for performing surgery. ...

Intestinal transplant is a relatively new surgery for people whose intestines are failing. In some cases of severe Crohns disease or other illnesses, most of the small intestine may be removed. Some people have so much of their small intestine removed that their bodies no longer can absorb nutrients (short bowel syndrome). People with no functioning small intestine must receive nutrition through intravenous (IV) feeding, which is called total parenteral nutrition (TPN). TPN treatment can have life-threatening complications, including infection and liver failure.. During an intestinal transplant, a surgeon transplants the small intestine of a cadaver into a person with Crohns disease. In some cases, the liver or other digestive organs may be transplanted at the same time.. An intestinal transplant is an extremely difficult procedure that is done in only a few medical centers. A small percentage of people with Crohns disease are considered for this surgery. Intestinal transplants carry a high ...
ECCO - European Crohn´s and Colitis Organisation. The European Crohn\s and Colitis Organisation is a highly active non-profit association focusing on Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD).
The causes of Crohn disease are complex. This condition results from a combination of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors, many of which are unknown.. Many of the major genes related to Crohn disease, including NOD2, ATG16L1, IL23R, and IRGM, are involved in immune system function. The proteins produced from these genes help the immune system sense and respond appropriately to bacteria in the lining of the digestive tract. Many of the proteins play roles in autophagy, which is a process that cells use to surround and destroy bacteria and viruses. Variations in these genes may disrupt autophagy or otherwise alter the immune systems response to bacteria in the digestive system. In combination with other genetic and environmental factors, these changes can lead to chronic inflammation and result in the digestive problems characteristic of Crohn disease.. Researchers have identified at least 200 genetic variations that influence Crohn disease risk. The majority of these variations are ...

BACKGROUND: Crohns disease can cause strictures throughout the gastrointestinal tract. Endoscopic balloon dilatation is a well-established treatment, but recurrence is seen in up to three out of four cases. Infliximab is playing an increasingly important role in the modern systemic treatment of severe Crohns disease. Combining the anti-inflammatory effects of infliximab with the proven effect of endoscopic balloon dilatation could possibly improve outcome. In small studies, intralesional injections in perianal fistulas have been effective and endoscopic injection therapy in colonic strictures is feasible. OBJECTIVE: We wanted to assess whether serial intralesional injection of infliximab in small bowel strictures is feasible and reduces local inflammation. METHODS: We included six patients with Crohns disease and inflammatory small bowel strictures. They were treated with endoscopic serial balloon dilatation. Subsequent to each dilatation, 40 mg infliximab was injected submucosally. A ...
The role of mesalamine in inducing remission of active Crohns disease and stopping it from coming back is uncertain. In patients with mild disease, mesalamine is used by itself and it is difficult to predict which patients will do fine just on mesalamine for a prolonged period of time and which patients will flare. In patients with moderate to severe Crohns disease it is felt that other therapies, such as corticosteroids (prednisone) and biologic therapies (Remicade, Cimzia, Humira), are more effective for inducing remission (1). There are at least four studies (2-5) that report a benefit of maintenance therapy with 5-ASA (mesalamine) in quiescent (inactive) Crohns disease. The majority of reviews of a bunch of studies put together, including the most recent big review of the Cochrane central register of controlled trials reported no benefit of mesalamine over placebo (fake drug), as well as mesalamine not being effective in preventing inactive Crohns disease relapse (1). The most recent ...
AIMS: To assess the relation of plasma viscosity to disease activity in patients with inflammatory bowel disease. METHODS: Crohns disease (n = 60) and ulcerative colitis (n = 71) were diagnosed on the basis of typical histological or radiological features. Active Crohns disease was defined as a Crohns disease activity index of 150 or over. Active ulcerative colitis was defined as a liquid stool passed three times a day or more with blood. Blood samples were assessed for haemoglobin concentration, total white cell count, platelets, plasma viscosity, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, serum albumin, and C-reactive protein. RESULTS: Plasma viscosity was higher in those with active Crohns disease compared with those with inactive Crohns disease or active ulcerative colitis. Plasma viscosity correlated significantly with erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein, and platelet count in patients with Crohns disease. In ulcerative colitis plasma viscosity correlated only with serum ...

A major challenge in the management of persistently active Crohns disease patients refractory to treatment regimen following the current guidelines is the induction of remission, which is a prerequisite for subsequent maintenance therapy. The aim of this study was to evaluate both the clinical and endoscopic benefit of intravenous cyclophosphamide pulse therapy in patients with active and therapy refractory Crohns disease. Nine patients with acute moderate to severe Crohns disease, not responding to conventional as well as biological therapy regimen received 3 - 9 cycles of monthly treatments with intravenous cyclophosphamide (680 - 1000 mg) in an uncontrolled setting and were retrospectively analyzed. Eight of nine patients (88.9%) had a clinical response (measured by a decrease in the Harvey-Bradshaw index, HBI ≥ 3) and two of nine patients (22.2%) achieved clinical remission (HBI ≤ 4) at week 8 after two applications of intravenous cyclophosphamide therapy. These response and ...

Researchers have successfully identified biological signatures in pediatric patients with newly diagnosed Crohns disease (CD) capable of predicting whether a child will develop disease-related complications requiring major surgery within three to five years. The results of this research, Prediction of complicated disease course for children newly diagnosed with Crohns disease: a multicentre inception cohort study, have been published in the journal, The Lancet. This groundbreaking work is the result of the Crohns & Colitis Foundations RISK Stratification study, the largest new-onset study completed on pediatric Crohns disease patients. It is a multicenter research initiative that consists of 25 U.S. institutions and three from Canada and a cohort of 1,112 CD children enrolled at diagnosis, of which 913 were included in the published study. Of the 28 research sites, four are located in Atlanta - Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta, and the ...
By Jennifer CashNEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Some forms of inflammatory bowel disease are a bigger threat to pregnancy than others, suggests a large new U.S. analysis.One of two major types of IBD, ulcerative colitis, was most strongly linked to serious pregnancy complications, researchers found in a study of nearly 400,000 women.But all women with IBD can and should take precautions for a safe pregnancy, experts said.A sick mother is not good for a growing pregnancy, Dr. Shannon Clark, an obstetrician in the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, told Reuters Health by email.Crohns Disease and ulcerative colitis are the main forms of IBD. Both affect the digestive tract, although the Crohns and Colitis Foundation of America defines ulcerative colitis as a chronic disease of the large intestine, while Crohns disease is a chronic inflammatory condition of the entire gastrointestinal tract.The causes of ulcerative colitis and Crohns disease remain

Hellenic Society of Gastroenterology. Annals of Gastroenterology.Educational material.Journal part.2007 . Creators: Paraskeva, Konstantina D..The optimal therapy for active inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is individualized according to the severity and the location of the disease and furthermore, the particular needs of each patient. For ulcerative colitis (UC), topical therapy can be useful in distal disease and the higher the dose of 5 ASA the better the response. In Crohn s disease (CD), budesonide is a promising treatment for mild to moderate ileitis and rightsided colitis. The anti-tumor necrosis factor-a (TNF-a) antibody infliximab is an effective therapy for moderate to severe inflammatory and fistulizing Crohn s disease. Recent studies have shown that infliximab is also effective in the treatment of moderate to severe UC. For both UC and CD, corticosteroids still remain the mainstay of treatment in active disease. The therapeutic goals in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) include induction of

Background: Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis are the two major forms of inflammatory bowel disease; treatment strategies have historically been determined by this binary categorisation. Genetic studies have identified 163 susceptibility loci for inflammatory bowel disease, mostly shared between Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis. We undertook the largest genotype association study, to date, in widely used clinical subphenotypes of inflammatory bowel disease with the goal of further understanding the biological relations between diseases.. Methods This study included patients from 49 centres in 16 countries in Europe, North America, and Australasia. We applied the Montreal classification system of inflammatory bowel disease subphenotypes to 34,819 patients (19,713 with Crohns disease, 14,683 with ulcerative colitis) genotyped on the Immunochip array. We tested for genotype-phenotype associations across 156,154 genetic variants. We generated genetic risk scores by combining information ...
Background The aim of the present study was to evaluate strictureplasty as the first choice for surgical treatment for Crohns terminal ileitis. Methods Between 1996 and 2000 we performed Finney-shaped ileocecal strictureplasty (ICS), doubling up the diseased terminal ileum, in 14 patients affected by Crohns disease (group A). We compared the postoperative and long-term outcomes of these patients with those of 14 similar patients who underwent ileocecal resection with ileocolonic anastomosis during the same period (group B). Results No postoperative morbidity or mortality was recorded in group A, whereas two patients of group B had a pelvic hematoma and cholestatic hepatopathy, respectively. The mean hospital stay after surgery was 9.9 days (range 7-13 days) in group A and 7.4 days (range 6-10 days) in group B. After a median follow-up of 120 months (range 103-147 months), five patients of group A had a symptomatic recurrence: A stricture at the site of the ICS was present in four of them, but ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Crohns disease. T2 - Rational management. AU - Picco, Michael F.. PY - 2002. Y1 - 2002. N2 - Crohns disease can involve any part of the digestive tract; it can manifest as inflammatory (diarrhea, abdominal pain, and fever), penetrating (abscess or fistula), or stricturing (recurrent bowel obstruction) disease. Treatment is based on the location and activity of the disease. Mesalamine is recommended to induce and maintain remission in patients with mild to moderate nonpenetrating, nonstricturing disease. Antibiotics may be used as an alternative or adjunct to mesalamine; ciprofloxacin and metronidazole are helpful in fistulizing Crohns disease. For patients with moderate to severe disease, corticosteroids are recommended to induce remission; infliximab is an alternative for those with severe or refractory disease. Remission is then maintained with immunosuppressive therapy, not with corticosteroids. Fistulas are difficult to treat but may respond to antibiotics or azathioprine; ...
DEERFIELD, Ill. - Takeda Pharmaceutical Co. is seeking Food and Drug Administration approval for an experimental treatment for inflammatory bowel disease, the drug maker said. Takeda announced that it had submitted a biologics license application to the FDA for vedolizumab in patients with severe Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis. IBD is estimated to affect more than 4 million people worldwide, and ulcerative colitis and Crohns disease affect as many as 700,000 Americans each, according to Takeda.
The acne drug Accutane has been linked to inflammatory bowel disease, including ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohns disease. In fact, a 2010 study conducted at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill found that patients who took Accutane or its generic form isotretinoin were four times more likely to develop UC than patients who did not take the acne drugs. Like ulcerative colitis, Crohns disease a form of inflammatory bowel disease and an autoimmune disorder of the digestive system. However, Crohns disease can affect all or any portion of the digestive tract from the mouth to the rectum while UC affects only the large intestine. Symptoms of Crohns disease include: Weight loss Fatigue Night sweats Changes in menstruation Fever (low-grade, but persistent) Prolonged diarrhea Abdominal pain Swelling or redness near the mouth or eyes Ulcers Rectal bleeding Urgent bowel movements Over time, swelling and scarring of the affected tissue can cause a narrowing or obstruction of the
Adherent and invasive Escherichia coli (AIEC) associated with Crohns disease are able to survive and to replicate extensively in active phagolysosomes within macrophages. AIEC-infected macrophages release large amounts of tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) and do not undergo cell death. The aim of the present study was to determine what benefit AIEC bacteria could gain from inducing the release of large amounts of TNF-α by infected macrophages and to what extent the neutralization of TNF-α could affect AIEC intramacrophagic replication. Our results showed that the amount of TNF-α released by infected macrophages is correlated with the load of intramacrophagic AIEC bacteria and their intracellular replication. TNF-α secretion was not related to the number of bacteria entering host cells because when the number of bacteria internalized in macrophage was decreased by blocking lipid raft-dependent and clathrin-coated pits-dependent endocytosis, the amount of TNF-α secreted by infected ...

Headline: Bitcoin & Blockchain Searches Exceed Trump! Blockchain Stocks Are Next!. Crohns Disease and Life Expectancy. There is no known cure for this disease. Various therapies help reduce the symptoms and allow people to function better. Crohns disease impacts a great number of young people - usually those in their twenties. Life expectancy with Crohns disease should not be a concern. This disease doesnt directly affect life expectancy.. There have been a lot of advances in the diagnosis and treatment of Crohns. What people do have to consider though is Crohns disease life expectancy without treatment. In the 1950s, a severe attack of Crohns disease meant a 30 to 60 percent risk of death, but that risk is now three percent when a patient follows a proper treatment plan. These treatments include everything from prescription medications to natural treatments, diet, exercise, as well as stress control techniques.. It can be challenging to live with Crohns, but when patients control their ...

Intestinal dysbiosis in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients depend on disease activity. We aimed to characterize the microbiota after 7 years of follow-up in an unselected cohort of IBD patients according to disease activity and disease severity. Fifty eight Crohns disease (CD) and 82 ulcerative colitis (UC) patients were included. Disease activity was assessed by the Harvey-Bradshaw Index for CD and Simple Clinical Colitis Activity Index for UC. Microbiota diversity was assessed by 16S rDNA MiSeq sequencing. In UC patients with active disease and in CD patients with aggressive disease the richness (number of OTUs, p = 0.018 and p = 0.013, respectively) and diversity (Shannons index, p = 0.017 and p = 0.023, respectively) were significantly decreased. In the active UC group there was a significant decrease in abundance of the phylum Firmicutes (p = 0.018). The same was found in CD patients with aggressive disease (p = 0.05) while the abundance of Proteobacteria phylum showed a significant ...
The overall aim of this thesis was to study epidemiological and clinical changes in the natural history of Crohns disease, its phenotype, the need for surgery and pharmacological therapy over time, as well as the role of faecal calprotectin as a biomarker of pathophysiology and disease course.. An increased incidence and prevalence of Crohns disease was seen in the period 1963-2010. The proportion of patients with non-stricturing, non-penetrating disease behaviour at diagnosis increased, suggesting that either patients with Crohns disease are diagnosed earlier in their disease course today or that the Crohns disease phenotype is changing.. A decrease in complicated disease behaviour, an increased use of immunomodulators, and a reduced frequency of surgical procedures five years after Crohns diagnosis was observed. The decrease in surgery at five years seemed to be explained mainly by a decrease in early surgery within three months from diagnosis, likely reflecting an increased proportion of ...

Variation in the 3 untranslated region (3UTR) of the HLA-C locus determines binding of the microRNA Hsa-miR-148a, resulting in lower cell surface expression of alleles that bind miR-148a relative to those alleles that escape its binding.. The HLA-C 3UTR variant was shown to associate with HIV control, but like the vast majority of disease associations in a region dense with causal candidates, a direct effect of HLA-C expression level on HIV control was not proven. We demonstrate that a MIR148A insertion/deletion polymorphism associates with its own expression levels, affecting the extent to which HLA-C is down-regulated, the level of HIV control, and the risk of Crohn disease only among those carrying an intact miR-148a binding site in the HLA-C 3UTR.. These data illustrate a direct effect of HLA-C expression level on HIV control that cannot be attributed to other HLA loci in linkage disequilibrium with HLA-C and highlight the rich complexity of genetic interactions in human disease. ...
When reading about inflammatory bowel diseases, it is important to know that Crohns disease is not the same thing as ulcerative colitis, another type of IBD. The symptoms of these two illnesses are quite similar, but the areas affected in the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) are different. Crohns most commonly affects the end of the small bowel (the ileum) and the beginning of the colon, but it may affect any part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, from the mouth to the anus. Ulcerative colitis is limited to the colon, also called the large intestine. Crohns disease can also affect the entire thickness of the bowel wall, while ulcerative colitis only involves the innermost lining of the colon. Finally, in Crohns disease, the inflammation of the intestine can skip leaving normal areas in between patches of diseased intestine. In ulcerative colitis this does not occur. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Diagnosis and management of Crohns disease. AU - Wilkins, Thad. AU - Jarvis, Kathryn. AU - Patel, Jigneshkumar. PY - 2011/1/1. Y1 - 2011/1/1. N2 - Crohns disease is a chronic inflammatory condition affecting the gastrointestinal tract at any point from the mouth to the rectum. Patients may experience diarrhea, abdominal pain, fever, weight loss, abdominal masses, and anemia. Extraintestinal manifestations of Crohns disease include osteoporosis, inflammatory arthropathies, scleritis, nephrolithiasis, cholelithiasis, and erythema nodosum. Acute phase reactants, such as C-reactive protein level and erythrocyte sedimentation rate, are often increased with inflammation and may correlate with disease activity. Levels of vitamin B12, folate, albumin, prealbumin, and vitamin D can help assess nutritional status. Colonoscopy with ileoscopy, capsule endoscopy, computed tomography enterography, and small bowel follow-through are often used to diagnose Crohns disease. Ultrasonography, ...
BACKGROUND: It may be possible to achieve more effective management of Crohns Disease by introducing a flexible dosage regimen sensitive to patients needs. AIM: Comparison of the efficacy and tolerability of a fixed vs. flexible budesonide controlled ileal release treatment regimen for the prevention and management of relapse in Crohns disease patients. Budesonide controlled ileal release is an oral formulation which delivers drug directly to disease sites in the ileum and ascending colon, by preventing more proximal release and absorption. METHODS: A randomized, double-blind comparison of a fixed dose of budesonide controlled ileal release (6 mg o.m.) and a flexible dose of budesonide controlled ileal release (3, 6 or 9 mg o.m.) for 12 months, in 143 patients in remission from ileal or ileo-caecal Crohns Disease. RESULTS: Very low rates of clinical relapse in Crohns disease were achieved with budesonide controlled ileal release 6 mg o.m. There was no significant difference between the treatment
Oral budesonide was effective for Crohn disease. Numerous immunosuppressors have been used in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). These include azathioprine/6-mercaptopurine (Aza/6-MP), methotrexate, cyclosporine, tacrolimus, and newer compounds such as anti-tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF), anti-CD4 monoclonal antibiodies, and interleukin 10 and 11. These compounds have been used mostly in steroid-resistant, chronic, active IBD. However, none of them appears to provide a cure for the disease. Among the many listed drugs, Aza/6-MP and methotrexate are the only ones used for long-term treatment of IBD. For other drugs, not enough data exist regarding long-term use except for some recent but limited experience with anti-TNF. Controlled trials and meta-analysis have confirmed the benefit of Aza/6-MP in Crohn disease (1). Methotrexate is considered a second-line immunosuppressant for failure or toxicity from Aza/6-MP and is reported to have a 40% success rate compared with a 20% ...
Immune mechanisms, possibly involving cell-surface molecules such as CD44, have been invoked to explain the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease. Monoclonal antibodies were used against epitopes encoded within the variable region of CD44 to investigate CD44 isoform expression in colon, small intestine, and liver in patients with various intestinal disorders and in controls. Biopsy samples from patients with ulcerative colitis showed significantly increased epithelial expression of CD44 isoforms containing the v6 and v3 epitopes, detected with antibodies 2F10 and 3G5, respectively. CD44v6 was detected on colonic crypt epithelial cells in 23 of 25 ulcerative colitis samples compared with 3 of 18 colonic Crohns disease samples (p = 3.0 x 10(-6); odds ratio 57.5 [95% CI 6.83-702]) and 3 of 52 controls (22 normal colon, 10 infective colitis, 2 radiation colitis, and 18 colonic Crohns disease; p , 1 x 10(-8); odds ratio 199 [25.5-2294]). No significant expression of CD44v6, CD44v3, or CD44v8/9 ...
