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.
An independent state in the Lesser Antilles in the West Indies, north of Venezuela, comprising the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. Its capital is Port of Spain. Both islands were discovered by Columbus in 1498. The Spanish, English, Dutch, and French figure in their history over four centuries. Trinidad and Tobago united in 1898 and were made part of the British colony of Trinidad and Tobago in 1899. The colony became an independent state in 1962. Trinidad was so named by Columbus either because he arrived on Trinity Sunday or because three mountain peaks suggested the Holy Trinity. Tobago was given the name by Columbus from the Haitian tambaku, pipe, from the natives' habit of smoking tobacco leaves.

A genomewide analysis provides evidence for novel linkages in inflammatory bowel disease in a large European cohort. (1/2435)

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)

Safety of long-term therapy with ciprofloxacin: data analysis of controlled clinical trials and review. (2/2435)

We reviewed the literature and the manufacturer's U.S. clinical data pool for safety data on long-term administration of ciprofloxacin (Bayer, West Haven, CT). Only controlled clinical trials including patients treated for >30 days were selected. We identified 636 patients by literature search and 413 patients in the Bayer U.S. database who fulfilled our search criteria; the average treatment duration for these patients was 130 and 80 days, respectively. Main indications for long-term therapy were osteomyelitis, skin and soft-tissue infection, prophylaxis for urinary tract infection, mycobacterial infections, and inflammatory bowel disease. Adverse events, premature discontinuation of therapy, and deaths occurred at a similar frequency in both treatment arms. Most adverse events occurred early during therapy with little increase in frequency over time. As with short-term therapy, gastrointestinal events were more frequent than central nervous system or skin reactions, but pseudomembranous colitis was not observed. No previously unknown adverse events were noted. We conclude that ciprofloxacin is tolerated as well as other antibiotics when extended courses of therapy are required.  (+info)

Evidence of T cell receptor beta-chain patterns in inflammatory and noninflammatory bowel disease states. (3/2435)

T cell activation, as defined by expression of relevant cell surface molecules, such as the interleukin-2 receptor (CD25), is increased in many chronic relapsing diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). These T cells are generally activated through contact of their clonotypic T cell receptor (TCR) with a peptide antigen presented by a major histocompatibility complex molecule. One of the putative antigenic contact sites for the TCR is the third complementarity determining region (CDR3) of the TCR beta-chain variable region (TCRBV). Therefore, analysis of the TCRBV CDR3 provides insight into the diversity of antigens encountered by a given T cell population. This study evaluated the TCRBV CDR3 usage of the activated intestinal lymphocytes from human subjects with IBD, diverticulitis (inflammatory control), and a normal tissue control. Public patterns, as demonstrated by shared TCRBV CDR3 amino acid sequences of activated intestinal T cell subpopulations, were observed. In particular, a public pattern of TCRBV22, a conserved valine in the fifth position, and use of TCRBJ2S1 or TCRBJ2S5 was present in three of four Crohn's disease subjects while not present in the ulcerative colitis subjects. However, the private patterns of TCRBV CDR3 region amino acid sequences were far more striking and easily demonstrated in all individuals studied, including a normal noninflammatory control. Thus we conclude that selective antigenic pressures are prevalent among an individual's activated intestinal lymphocytes.  (+info)

Colitis-inducing potency of CD4+ T cells in immunodeficient, adoptive hosts depends on their state of activation, IL-12 responsiveness, and CD45RB surface phenotype. (4/2435)

We studied the induction, severity and rate of progression of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) induced in SCID mice by the adoptive transfer of low numbers of the following purified BALB/c CD4+ T cell subsets: 1) unfractionated, peripheral, small (resting), or large (activated) CD4+ T cells; 2) fractionated, peripheral, small, or large, CD45RBhigh or CD45RBlow CD4+ T cells; and 3) peripheral IL-12-unresponsive CD4+ T cells from STAT-4-deficient mice. The adoptive transfer into SCID host of comparable numbers of CD4+ T cells was used to assess the colitis-inducing potency of these subsets. Small CD45RBhigh CD4+ T lymphocytes and activated CD4+ T blasts induced early (6-12 wk posttransfer) and severe disease, while small resting and unfractionated CD4+ T cells or CD45RBlow T lymphocytes induced a late-onset disease 12-16 wk posttransfer. SCID mice transplanted with STAT-4-/- CD4+ T cells showed a late-onset IBD manifest > 20 wk posttransfer. In SCID mice with IBD transplanted with IL-12-responsive CD4+ T cells, the colonic lamina propria CD4+ T cells showed a mucosa-seeking memory/effector CD45RBlow Th1 phenotype abundantly producing IFN-gamma and TNF-alpha. In SCID mice transplanted with IL-12-unresponsive STAT-4-/- CD4+ T cells, the colonic lamina propria, mesenteric lymph node, and splenic CD4+ T cells produced very little IFN-gamma but abundant levels of TNF-alpha. The histopathologic appearance of colitis in all transplanted SCID mice was similar. These data indicate that CD45RBhigh and CD45RBlow, IL-12-responsive and IL-12-unresponsive CD4+ T lymphocytes and lymphoblasts have IBD-inducing potential though of varying potency.  (+info)

Review article: the potential role of nitric oxide in chronic inflammatory bowel disorders. (5/2435)

The aetiology of the chronic inflammatory bowel diseases-ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease-as well as 'microscopic colitis'-both collagenous (COC) and lymphocytic colitis (LC)-remains unknown. Autoimmune mechanisms, cytokine polymorphism, commensal bacteria, infectious agents and vascular impairment have all been proposed as playing important roles in the pathogenesis of this spectrum of diseases. A variety of proinflammatory mediators, including tumour necrosis factor alpha, interleukin-1beta, interferon gamma, leukotriene B4 and platelet activating factor, promote the adherence of phagocytes to the venular endothelium and extravasation of these cells into the colonic mucosa. In addition to large amounts of nitric oxide (NO), injurious peroxynitrite may be formed in the epithelium by the inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), which is considered to elicit cytotoxicity by the generation of superoxide with reduced L-arginine availability. In active ulcerative colitis, and to a lesser extent in Crohn's disease, a greatly increased production of NO has been demonstrated by indirect and direct measurements. Surprisingly, even higher rates of production have been observed in COC-a condition which is never associated with injurious inflammation. The latter observation favours the notion that NO promotes mucosal integrity. Further evidence for a protective role of NO in chronic inflammatory bowel disorders is provided by the observation of increased susceptibility to the induction of experi mental colitis in 'knock-out' mice deficient in iNOS. Selective inhibitors of iNOS activity, as well as topical L-arginine, may therefore prove beneficial in inflammatory bowel disease by reducing the production of superoxide by iNOS, while only the former option may be expected to reduce diarrhoea in chronic inflammatory bowel disorders. Clearly, further experimental work needs to be done before testing topical L-arginine in human inflammatory bowel disease.  (+info)

Glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity in inactive inflammatory bowel disease. (6/2435)

BACKGROUND: Inflammatory mediator concentration was found to be increased in active inflammatory bowel disease, and this could be related to an insulin-resistant state. Moreover, glucocorticoids, which are widely used in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, are notoriously related to insulin resistance. AIM: To measure body composition, whole body glucose uptake and oxidation in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis patients with inactive disease. METHODS: All patients had clinical, ultrasound and biochemical assessment. Body composition was determined by isotopic dilution technique; basal metabolic rate and substrate oxidation were measured by indirect calorimetry. Insulin sensitivity was assessed by the euglycaemic hyperinsulinaemic clamp. Ten patients with inactive Crohn's disease (five males, aged 31.1 +/- 7.0 years) and 10 patients with inactive ulcerative colitis (five males, aged 33.4 +/- 8.8 years) participated in the study. Forty healthy subjects, matched for age and height were used as a control group. RESULTS: Crohn's disease patients showed lower BMI (P < 0.001), fat mass (P < 0.05) and respiratory quotient (P < 0.001) values compared to both ulcerative colitis and control subjects. No difference in peripheral glucose uptake (micromol/kg/min) was found between groups (respectively 42.5 +/- 6.78 in Crohn's disease, 40.2 +/- 8.00 in ulcerative colitis and 41.4 +/- 10.8 in control subjects). Glucose storage and oxidation did not differ between groups. CONCLUSION: Our data showed that inflammatory bowel disease patients in a remission phase of the disease activity had a whole body glucose uptake and oxidation similar to those of control subjects, probably due to fat-free mass preservation and low blood and tissue cytokine concentration.  (+info)

Antioxidant effects of aminosalicylates and potential new drugs for inflammatory bowel disease: assessment in cell-free systems and inflamed human colorectal biopsies. (7/2435)

BACKGROUND: The therapeutic efficacy of 5-aminosalicylic acid in inflammatory bowel disease may be related to its antioxidant properties. AIM: To compare in vitro the antioxidant effects of conventional drugs (5-aminosalicylic acid, corticosteroids, metronidazole), with new aminosalicylates (4-aminosalicylic acid, balsalazide) and other potential therapies (ascorbate, N-acetylcysteine, glutathione, verapamil). METHODS: Compounds were assessed for efficacy in reducing the in vitro production of reactive oxygen species by cell-free systems (using xanthine/xanthine oxidase, with or without myeloperoxidase) and by colorectal biopsies from patients with ulcerative colitis using luminol-amplified chemiluminescence. RESULTS: 5-aminosalicylic acid and balsalazide were more potent antioxidants than 4-aminosalicylic acid or N-acetyl-5-aminosalicylic acid in cell-free systems. 5-aminosalicylic acid (20 mM) and balsalazide (20 mM) inhibited rectal biopsy chemiluminescence by 93% and 100%, respectively, compared with only 59% inhibition by 4-aminosalicylic acid (20 mM). Hydrocortisone, metronidazole and verapamil had no significant effect on chemiluminescence in any system. Ascorbate (20 mM) inhibited chemiluminescence by 100% in cell-free systems and by 60% in rectal biopsies. N-acetyl cysteine (10 mM), and both oxidized and reduced glutathione (10 mM), completely inhibited chemiluminescence in cell-free systems, but not with rectal biopsies. CONCLUSIONS: The antioxidant effects of compounds varies between cell-free systems and inflamed colorectal biopsies. The effect of drugs on the chemiluminescence produced by these two assay systems is useful for screening potentially new antioxidant treatments for inflammatory bowel disease. Ascorbate seems worth further study as a novel therapy.  (+info)

Enhanced production of monocyte chemotactic protein 3 in inflammatory bowel disease mucosa. (8/2435)

BACKGROUND: The beta chemokine monocyte chemotactic protein 3 (MCP-3) has chemoattractant and activating capabilities in monocytes, lymphocytes, eosinophils, and basophils. AIMS: To investigate MCP-3 expression in inflammatory conditions of the human intestinal mucosa. PATIENTS: Forty five colon biopsy specimens from 18 patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD; 16 specimens from inflamed and 10 from non-inflamed areas) and 19 control patients were examined. METHODS: Immunohistochemical staining and reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) were used for MCP-3 detection in tissue sections. Intestinal epithelial cell lines (HT-29, Caco-2, T-84) were stimulated with interleukin (IL) 1beta, IL-6, and tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) and examined for MCP-3 protein and mRNA expression using immunocytochemistry and RT-PCR, respectively. RESULTS: In tissue sections, MCP-3 protein was detected predominantly in epithelial cells, both in patients with IBD and in controls. MCP-3 staining was particularly pronounced at sites of active mucosal inflammation. The intensity of MCP-3 staining was positively correlated with the extent of epithelial destruction. In intestinal epithelial cell lines, MCP-3 mRNA was expressed, whereas MCP-3 protein was not consistently detected. CONCLUSIONS: Our data show that MCP-3 protein is present in normal and inflamed intestinal tissue. MCP-3 production is substantially enhanced in areas of active inflammation, suggesting an immunoregulatory role of MCP-3 in intestinal inflammation.  (+info)

Catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) is being increasingly used to treat TE but often evokes fears of hemorrhagic complications (HCs) in patients with IBD. We reviewed clinical outcomes with anticoagulation (AC) and CDT in IBD patients with TE. Methods: Published cases of IBD patients with TE were identified by a PubMed search. Cases were divided into two groups based on treatment modality: AC alone or CDT. Pretreatment variables and treatment-related outcomes were compared between treatment groups. Results: Fifty-two cases of IBD-associated TE were identified. Thirty-five cases were treated with AC alone and 17 with CDT. There were no ...

© 2019 Olbjørn et al. Purpose: Imbalance in the microbiota, dysbiosis, has been identified in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We explored the fecal microbiota in pediatric patients with treatment-naïve IBD, non-IBD patients with gastrointestinal symptoms and healthy children, its relation to IBD subgroups, and treatment outcomes. Patients and methods: Fecal samples were collected from 235 children below 18 years of age. Eighty children had Crohns disease (CD), 27 ulcerative colitis (UC), 3 IBD unclassified, 50 were non-IBD symptomatic patients, and 75 were healthy. The bacterial abundance of 54 predefined DNA markers was measured with a 16S rRNA DNA-based test using GA-Map ™ technology at diagnosis and after therapy in IBD patients. Results: Bacterial abundance was similarly reduced in IBD and non-IBD patients in 51 of 54 markers compared to healthy patients (P|0.001). Only Prevotella was more abundant in patients (P|0.01). IBD patients with ileocolitis or total colitis had more Ruminococcus
In this study we have applied exome sequencing, which allows the screening of the complete spectrum of variation within protein coding genes. There is abundant evidence that such regions are likely to be highly enriched for disease causing variation.31 We have focused on the identification of rare and novel variation within genes known to contain causal variants or identified as candidate genes for IBD. Excluding HLA variants and considering only rare non-synonymous, stop-gain mutations and indels, we uncovered 58 variants across 39 genes, of which 17 were not previously reported. Of these, 35% (20 variants) have SIFT scores under 0.05, 12 of these are also classified as probably damaging by Polyphen2 and five of these (BTNL2: S334L; C1orf93: G176R; ICAM1: R367C; NOD2: R702W and SH2B1: L185Q) are also classified as moderately radical or radical by Grantham score. One variant, CXCR1 (R335C), has a borderline SIFT score of 0.09 and is classified as probably damaging by Polyphen2 and radical by ...

Objective - To examine healthcare utilization according to family income in children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).. Study design - A population-based cohort of children aged ,18 years diagnosed with IBD between 1994 and 2004 was followed using health administrative data. Multivariatemodels were used to test the association between mean neighborhood income quintile and physician and emergency department visits, hospitalizations, or surgeries.. Results - Compared with children from higher-income neighborhoods, children from low-income neighborhoods were more likely to be hospitalized at least once (hazard ratio, 1.17; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.05-1.30) or to visit the emergency department (hazard ratio, 1.21; 95% CI, 1.09-1.35), and had more IBD-related physician visits (odds ratio [OR], 3.73; 95% CI, 1.05-13.27). Children from low-income neighborhoods with Crohns disease (but not those with ulcerative colitis) were more likely to undergo intra-abdominal surgery within 3 years of ...
Aims: Accurate assessment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) activity is the cornerstone of effective therapy. Fecal M2 isoform of pyruvate kinase (M2-PK) and fecal calprotectin (FC) are noninvasive markers of mucosal inflammation in IBD. The aim of this study was to compare performance of M2-PK and FC in assessment of pediatric ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD) severity and activity. Materials and methods: 121 patients with IBD, including 75 with UC and 46 with CD were recruited. Control group consisted of 35 healthy children (HS). Patients were assigned to groups depending on disease severity and activity. M2-PK and calprotectin concentration were determined in stool samples using ELISA. Areas under receiver operating characteristic curves (AUC) for FC and M2-PK with cut-off level at which M2-PK specificity was matching FC specificity were calculated and compared. Results: Performance of M2-PK at identifying patients with IBD, UC and CD among HS was inferior to FC. The ...
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic, debilitating, relapsing inflammatory disorder affecting the gastrointestinal tract which does not have a medical cure. IBD consists of 2 different forms: Crohns Disease (CD) and Ulcerative Colitis (UC). In the last 2 decades, Gut Microbial Transplantation (GMT), also known as fecal transplantation, has been used as a treatment option for Clostridium difficile colitis and UC. The literature supports strong evidence for the plausibility of using GMT for patients with IBD associated colitis, especially for patients with UC.. This research will be conducted in the Helen DeVos Childrens Hospital (HDVCH) Pediatric gastrointestinal outpatient clinic. A pilot study of ten patients will be conducted to evaluate if GMT improves clinical symptoms in patients with IBD. Patients with IBD colitis (UC and CD with colonic involvement only) will be approached for GMT as a treatment option for their disease. Each subject will undergo 5 sessions (1 session/day, and ...

Abstract Inflammatory bowel diseases are chronic conditions of unknown etiology, showing a growing incidence and prevalence in several countries, including Italy. Although the etiology of Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis is unknown, due to the current knowledge regarding their pathogenesis, effective treatment strategies have been developed. Several guidelines are available regarding the efficacy and safety of available drug treatments for inflammatory bowel diseases. Nevertheless, national guidelines provide additional information adapted to local feasibility, costs and legal issues related to the use of the same drugs. These observations prompted the Italian Group for the Study of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IG-IBD) to establish Italian guidelines on the safety of currently available treatments for Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis. These guidelines discuss the use of aminosalicylates, systemic and low bioavailability corticosteroids, antibiotics (metronidazole, ciprofloxacin, rifaximin),

The incidence of inflammatory bowel disease is on the increase in both adults and children.1 2 The disorder includes two major forms of chronic intestinal inflammation: Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis. Suspicion is raised in patients with persistent (≥4 weeks) or recurrent (≥2 episodes in six months) abdominal pain and diarrhoea. Additionally, rectal bleeding, weight loss, or anaemia increase the probability of the condition.3 4 Pathognomonic signs or symptoms do not exist. Endoscopic evaluation with histopathological sampling are generally considered indispensable in the investigation of patients with suspected inflammatory bowel disease.3 4 Many patients consider endoscopy and the required bowel preparation to be uncomfortable.5 In a relatively large proportion of people with suspected inflammatory bowel disease the results of endoscopy will be negative.6 A third of adults with bleeding related symptoms have no abnormalities on endoscopy, and this proportion increases to half with ...
The study, Characterization of Genetic Loci That Affect Susceptibility to Inflammatory Bowel Diseases in African Americans, is an intensive evaluation of the genetics of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in the African-American population.. Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis are chronic autoimmune diseases that affect as many as 1.6 million Americans. Patients with IBD have immune systems that attack their own intestines, resulting in inflammation. According to the Crohns and Colitis Foundation of America, recent years have seen a steady increase in reported cases of IBD in African-Americans.. This study is the culmination of over a decade of work, says Steven Brant, M.D., director of the Johns Hopkins Meyerhoff Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center and corresponding author of the study.

AU - Chopra, A. K.. PY - 1996/1/1. Y1 - 1996/1/1. N2 - Background - Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis are idiopathic inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) involving synthesis of eicosanoids from arachidonic acid (AA), which is released from membrane phospholipids by phospholipase A2 (PLA2). A potentially important regulator of the production of these mediators is a protein activator of PLA2, referred to as PLA2 activating protein (PLAP). Aims - The purpose of this investigation was to discover if PLAP values might be increased in the inflamed intestinal tissue of patients with IBD and in intestinal tissue of mice with colitis. Patients - Biopsy specimens were taken from patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohns disease undergoing diagnostic colonoscopy, and normal colonic mucosa was obtained from ...
Results: During the 2003-2008 study period 436 patients were diagnosed with PIBD in Scotland, giving an adjusted incidence of 7.82/100,000/year. The incidence of Crohns disease (CD) was 4.75/100,000/year, ulcerative colitis (UC) 2.06/100,000/year, and inflammatory bowel disease-unclassified (IBDU) 1.01/100,000/year. Compared with data from 1990-1995 when 260 IBD patients were diagnosed, significant rises in the incidence of IBD (from 4.45/100,000/year, P , 0.0001), CD (from 2.86/100,000/year, P , 0.0001), and UC (from 1.59/100,000/year, P = 0.023) were seen.

Anemia, a common complication associated with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), is frequently overlooked in the management of IBD patients. Unfortunately, it represents one of the major causes of both decreased quality of life and increased hospital admissions among this population. Anemia in IBD is pathogenically complex, with several factors contributing to its development. (Anemia in inflammatory bowel disease: A neglected issue with relevant effects. World J Gastroenterol. 2014 Apr 7; 20(13): 3542-3551. Danila Guagnozzi and Alfredo J Lucendo). Treatment today consists mainly of oral non-heme iron prior to intravenous iron and erythropoietin treatment..

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Cerebrovascular accidents [CVA] have rarely been reported in inflammatory bowel disease [IBD] patients treated with anti-tumour necrosis alpha [anti-TNF alpha] agents. Our aim here was to describe the clinical course of CVA in these patients.. METHODS: This was a European Crohns and Colitis Organisation [ECCO] retrospective observational study, performed as part of the CONFER [COllaborative Network For Exceptionally Rare case reports] project. A call to all ECCO members was made to report on IBD patients afflicted with CVA during treatment with anti-TNF alpha agents. Clinical data were recorded in a standardised case report form and analysed for event association with anti-TNF alpha treatment.. RESULTS: A total of 19 patients were identified from 16 centres: 14 had Crohns disease, four ulcerative colitis and one IBD colitis unclassified [median age at diagnosis: 38.0 years, range: 18.6-62.5]. Patients received anti-TNF alpha for a median duration of 11.8 months [range: ...
Title:What is the Optimal Treatment for Anemia in Inflammatory Bowel Disease?. VOLUME: 9 ISSUE: 4. Author(s):Alexandra J. Kent, Victoria J. Blackwell and Simon P.L. Travis. Affiliation:Translational Gastroenterology Unit, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, UK.. Keywords:Inflammatory bowel disease, anemia, Crohns disease, ulcerative colitis, iron deficiency, anemia of chronic disease, hemoglobin. Abstract:Anemia is common in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), with a prevalence ranging from 8.8% to 73.7%. This wide range reflects the definitions used and the populations studied. Although many patients are reported to be asymptomatic, systematic studies have shown anemia to have a significant impact on quality of life. Consequently treatment should be instituted early. The commonest cause of anemia in IBD is iron deficiency, predominantly related to gastrointestinal blood loss. Anemia of chronic disease often occurs concomitantly, due to cytokine-mediated impaired erythropoiesis and dysregulated iron ...

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

The use of immunomodulators and biological therapies has enhanced overall quality of life for many patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) by decreasing inflammatory activity in the gastrointestinal tract, the number of hospitalizations, and the need for surgery. Despite these benefits, patients receiving immunosuppressive agents are at higher risk for developing infections, many of which may be preventable through the use of appropriate vaccination. IBD patients have historically had low vaccination rates,1 and gastroenterologists have knowledge deficits with regard to the correct ...

The role of trough serum infliximab (s-IFX) and antibodies toward IFX (ATI) during maintenance treatment remains unclear in children. The aim of the present study was to investigate trough s-IFX and ATI to identify any correlation with inflammatory activity and clinical response in a pediatric inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) cohort. We investigated the s-IFX trough levels in pediatric IBD patients (n = 45) on maintenance IFX treatment. Ninety-three blood samples were collected and demographics, C-reactive protein (CRP), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and albumin were recorded. The mean s-IFX trough level was 5.2 µg/mL. The mean trough s-IFX level was significantly higher in the samples taken during remission (7.2 µg/mL) compared to active disease (4.5 µg/mL, p < 0.05). The trough s-IFX levels correlated with ESR, CRP, and albumin. S-IFX was undetectable in eight of the patients, all with positive ATI and active disease. Surprisingly, clinical and biochemical remission was observed at only

Several international symposia on chronic inflammatory bowel disease over the last few years have contributed to our understanding of the pathophysiology and treatment of this condition. Molecular biology and new analytical techniques have continuously improved our knowledge of mucosal immunology and of inflammatory reactions. Progress in this field is very rapid and has implications for diagnosis and treatment, and makes it important to have a scientific exchange between basic research and clinical practice. This volume, the proceedings of Falk Symposium No. 96, held in Freiburg, Germany, October 30- November 1, 1996, documents the transfer of knowledge between clinicians and basic scientists, and clarifies the definitions used in daily practice such as active disease, refractory diseases or remission. The book will open new aspects for future research and clinical work in the field of inflammatory bowel diseases.

The pathogenesis and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have been recently advanced, while it is still challenged with high morbidity and poor prognosis. amelioration and remission of immune responses. The mechanisms of infliximab treatment for IBD were intensively discussed. The recent advances on two topics including predictors and side effects of infliximab treatment were also reviewed. 1. Introduction Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), mainly containing Crohns disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), is a group of chronic inflammatory disorders in the colon and small intestine. Although the etiology of IBD remains unclear, the pathogenesis of IBD has been recently advanced. It is strongly suggested that altered immunological function, resulting from an interplay between genetic susceptibility and certain environmental factors including bacteria infection, contributes to the development of mucosal inflammatory responses of gastrointestinal tract [1].

Management of inflammatory bowel disease in poor responders to infliximab Iván Guerra, Fernando Bermejo Gastroenterology Department, Hospital Universitario de Fuenlabrada, Madrid, Spain Abstract: Infliximab (IFX) is an effective treatment for inducing and maintaining response in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis patients. Some patients present lack of response or loss of response to IFX during maintenance therapy. Empirical management with combination therapy with an immunomodulator, IFX dose escalation, or switching IFX for another antitumor necrosis factor-α drug, mainly adalimumab, is common in clinical practice. Selecting the best choice with the help of serum drug concentrations and trough IFX antibody concentrations could be a very interesting approach. In addition to surgery, a broad spectrum of new drugs has been tested and could expand treatment options in the near future. Keywords: inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, anti-TNF, infliximab

BACKGROUND: Nitric oxide (NO) production is increased in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and measurement of NO metabolites may be useful for monitoring disease activity. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To characterise urinary nitrite levels, a stable metabolite of NO, in IBD and to evaluate its potential as a marker of disease activity. METHODS: Twelve-hour urinary nitrites were measured by the microplate assay method in 46 patients with IBD (active; n = 32). Urinary samples from 16 healthy individuals served as controls. RESULTS: Increased levels of urinary nitrites were found in patients with active IBD compared with those with inactive IBD. Twenty-eight out of 32 patients (87.5%) with active IBD had detectable levels of nitrite in their urine as compared with 2/14 (14.3%) patients with inactive IBD. None of the 16 healthy controls had detectable urinary nitrite. Twelve-hour urinary nitrite in active compared with inactive IBD: 5 0.7 versus 0.1+/-0.04 micromol (P , 0.05). There was good correlation ...

The chronic nature of inflammatory bowel disease leads to considerable impairment on the health related quality of life (HRQOL). The aims of the present study are to validate the mainland Chinese translation of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (MCIBDQ), and to evaluate the impact of infliximab treatment on HRQOL in patients with IBD for the first time in China, as compared with other therapies of different levels. Furthermore, the impact of different medical therapies on marriage, employment and economic burden in IBD patients were also evaluated. Consecutive patients who met inclusion/exclusion criteria were investigated with MCIBDQ, SF-36, disease activity index (DAI), marriage, employment and economic burden questionnaires before and after treatment. MCIBDQ showed significant reliability and validity both in CD and UC patients. The scores of total SF-36, total MCIBDQ and all domains were found significantly increased, while both DAI and health transition on general health scores were

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) such as Crohns disease are highly debilitating. There are inconsistencies in response to and side effects in the current conventional medications, failures in adequate drug delivery, and the lack of therapeutics to offer complete remission in the presently available treatments of IBD. This suggests the need to explore beyond the horizons of conventional approaches in IBD therapeutics. This review examines the arena of the evolving IBD nanomedicine, studied so far in animal and in vitro models, before comprehensive clinical testing in humans. The investigations carried out so far in IBD models have provided substantial evidence of the nanotherapeutic approach as having the potential to overcome some of the current drawbacks to conventional IBD therapy. We analyze the pros and cons of nanotechnology in IBD therapies studied in different models, aimed at different targets and mechanisms of IBD pathogenesis, in an attempt to predict its possible impact in humans.
Idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a common cause of chronic gastrointestinal disease in dogs. Accumulating evidence in human IBD and animal models suggests that imbalances in composition of the intestinal microbiota contribute to the pathogenesis of chronic intestinal inflammation. Recent studies have also shown that dogs with IBD have distinctly different duodenal microbial communities compared to healthy dogs. Current treatments for IBD include the administration of nonspecific anti-inflammatory drugs which may confer serious side effects and do not address the underlying basis for disease, namely, altered microbial composition. Use of probiotics (viable, non-pathogenic bacteria that exert health benefits beyond basic nutrition) offers an attractive, physiologic, and non-toxic alternative to shift the balance to protective species and treat IBD. The aim of the proposed study is to investigate the clinical, microbiologic, and anti-inflammatory effects of probiotic VSL#3 in the treatment of
To determine how the increased oxidative stress of the IBD gut shapes the composition of the gut microbiome, we first needed to bin the species of the gut microbiome by their ability to respond to oxidative stress (rather than by their taxonomic classification). Based on literature review (Methods), we manually binned species into two categories: i) oxygen-utilizing organisms (also known as facultative anaerobes, which can grow with or without oxygen); and ii) organisms that cannot use oxygen as a terminal electron acceptor (namely, aerotolerant and obligate anaerobes, which are both unable to grow in oxygen; however, unlike obligate anaerobes, aerotolerant bacteria are not rapidly poisoned by atmospheric oxygen) (Additional file 2: Table S2).. We found a consistent signal of increased facultative anaerobe abundance in IBD patients across both the LSS and the Lewis et al. cohorts (p value = 0.0478 and 0.005, respectively; Fig. 1b). IBD patients from the LSS and Lewis et al. cohorts showed mean ...
Vitamin D is one of many important body essential vitamins that help balance the body. It is known to be an immune system regulator. Researchers states that, the active form of vitamin D, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1,25(OH)2D3], has been shown to inhibit the development of autoimmune diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). In total reverse of proper Vitamin D intake and low counts of Vitamin D receptors, it can result in accelerated inflammatory bowel disease. Dietary calcium can help trigger the effects of Vitamin D on the immune system because it has its own independent effects on inflammatory bowel disease. Therefore 1,25(OH)2D3 treatment of mice on low-calcium diets can improve the symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease.. Vitamin D is a group of fat-soluble secosteroids, the two major physiologically relevant forms of which are vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Vitamin D without a subscript refers to either D2 or D3 or both. Vitamin D is produced in ...
Inflammatory bowel disease is a chronic disorder of the lower gastrointestinal tract that may occur in three forms: Crohns disease (CD), ulcerative colitis (UC), and indeterminate colitis (IC). Its prevalence in the adult population approaches 0.3%.1 The differential diagnosis of the different forms of IBD is often difficult, time-consuming, and invasive.2 The gold standard for diagnosis is endoscopy with biopsies for histologic examination.3 In recent years, however, a number of serological markers have been introduced. The most commonly employed serological markers of IBD are anti-Saccharomyces cerevisiae antibody (ASCA) and atypical perinuclear antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (pANCA). ASCA positivity is found predominantly in patients with CD, while pANCA positivity is found predominantly in patients with UC.2 A combination of ASCA and pANCA has a specificity of as high as 99% for differentiation of CD from UC.3 Nevertheless, there are a substantial number of patients with IBD who are ...

Introduction The early identification of primary non-response to anti-TNFα therapy facilitates the timely management of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). A recent, pilot study to detect prognostic markers of early response to anti-TNFα therapy identified the two genes coding for the calprotectin subunits (S100A8, S100A9) to be among the most highly expressed gene transcripts in non-responders. This study tests the hypothesis that measurements of faecal calprotectin (FCAL) pre- and post- anti-TNFα induction can predict primary non-response in both Crohns disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) ...

To the Editor:. Cerebral palsy (CP) has not been associated with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We have diagnosed IBD in 5 children with CP in the last 2 years. We reviewed our pediatric patients seen from 1996 to 2009 at Childrens Hospital, Colorado, with CP and/or IBD and identified 13 with CP and newly diagnosed IBD (6 Crohn disease, 5 ulcerative colitis, and 2 indeterminate colitis), providing an estimate of 1.8% (95% CI 0.97-3.08) for frequency of CP in IBD and an estimated cumulative incidence of 193 (95% CI 103-330) cases with IBD per 100,000 patients with CP.. IBD patients with CP frequently presented with high white blood cell counts, often received infliximab or tacrolimus in the first month following diagnosis, and commonly developed perianal fistula during follow-up. Therefore, we suggest that CP is possibly associated with an aggressive form of IBD. We estimate a prevalence of CP in our patients with IBD (1.8%) that is higher than reported in the general population (0.36%) (1). ...
A diagnosis of Crohns disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) is based on a combination of clinical, histologic, endoscopic, and radiologic data. The distinction between UC and CD can be difficult because of the lack of a differentiating single gold standard. Indeterminate colitis (IC) was introduced by pathologists for the diagnosis of surgical colectomy specimens showing an overlap between the features of UC and CD. The diagnosis of IC was based on macroscopic and microscopic features. The term indeterminate colitis is in recent years more widely applied to include all cases with endoscopic, radiographic, and histologic evidence of chronic inflammatory bowel disease confined to the colon, but without fulfilment of diagnostic criteria for UC and CD. As for UC and CD, the diagnosis of IC has therefore become a clinicopathologic diagnosis. IC is generally considered to be a temporary diagnosis. The clinical characteristics of patients with IC are, however, somewhat different from the ...

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is the term used when no medical disease is present, but bowel symptoms exist nonetheless.. IBD and IBS share many similar symptoms such as pain, constipation, diarrhea, gas, and bloating. Distinguishing between the two can be difficult, but is very important, as there are critical differences in the proper management of these two conditions. Although, medications may give relief, they do little to correct the cause or the digestive problem and will in fact actually contribute to the progression of the disease because the drugs will cause ...
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is often referred to inaccurately as colitis and mucous colitis. But the suffix itis in a medical conditions name denotes inflammation, which is not a hallmark of IBS. Rather than inflaming the colon, IBS sensitizes the nerves responsible for the contractions (called peristalsis) that propel partially digested food through the organ. As a result, the muscular inner wall overreacts to mild stimuli like milk products and emotional stress, and goes into spasm. Irritable bowel syndrome produces cramplike pains and bouts of diarrhea and/or constipation.. The more serious disorders, Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis, are both forms of inflammatory bowel disease. IBD damages the tissue of the small bowel and the large bowel, respectively, through the process of inflammation. As the bodys response to injury, inflammation is characterized by blood-carrying, infection-fighting white blood cells that rush to the site of the injury. Their presence accounts for the ...

Inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD, is a general term that reflects an abnormal immune response resulting in inflammation of the intestinal tract. The two most common forms of IBD are ulcerative colitis and Crohns disease. Both diseases are believed to be caused by an abnormal response in the bodys immune system so that the digestive tract mistakes food and other materials as foreign substances. This stimulates a response to attack the cells of the intestines by sending white blood cells to the area to produce inflammation.. Ulcerative colitis. Ulcerative colitis is a chronic condition that affects the colon or large bowel only and is limited to the inner layer of the colon. The lining of the colon becomes inflamed and develops tiny, open sores (ulcers) that produce pus and mucus.. Symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis. One of the first symptoms of ulcerative colitis is loosening of the stool, which usually is bloody and may be accompanied by abdominal cramping and the severe urge to have a bowel ...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Inflammatory bowel disease [IBD] places an economic strain on health systems due to expensive pharmaceutical therapy, risk of hospitalisation and surgery, and long-term monitoring. The evolving treatment guidelines advocate rapid scale-up to biologic agents in order to improve health outcomes and quality of life. This study evaluated changes in health care utilisation and expenditures for IBD in Switzerland over time.. METHODS: We extracted clinical, patient, and resource consumption data from the Swiss IBD Cohort Study between 2006 and 2016. Average unit costs for IBD-related events were derived from Swiss claims data and pharmaceutical price lists. We used multivariate regression, controlling for patient-level characteristics, to estimate trends and determinants of direct and indirect costs and resource utilisation.. RESULTS: We included 2365 adults diagnosed with Crohns disease [CD; N = 1353] and ulcerative colitis [UC; N = 1012]. From 2006-16, mean health care ...
SUMMARY. Six patients with either ulcerative or granulomatous intestinal disease were noted to have markedly elevated concentrations of circulating blood platelets during a period of increased clinical activity of their bowel disorders. The series included three males and three females, ranging in age from 13 to 52 years. Platelet counts were observed for periods varying from 37 to 89 days, and concentrations generally ranged between 500,000 and 1.3 million/mm3. Careful examination failed to disclose any primary hematologic disease, though granulocytic and megakaryocytic hyperplasia of the bone marrow were noted. Other factors capable of inducing thrombocytosis, such as anemia, iron deficiency, and active gastrointestinal bleeding, were not uniformly present.. Myelosuppressive therapy was used in three patients with the highest platelet concentrations in an effort to decrease the likelihood of hemorrhagic or thrombotic phenomena often associated with thrombocythemia. One patient with untreated ...
Background and Aims: Primary sclerosing cholangitis [PSC] is an idiopathic chronic disorder of the hepatobiliary system associated with inflammatory bowel disease [IBD], mainly ulcerative colitis [UC]. Colitis in patients with PSC and UC [PSC-UC] exhibits characteristic features and is linked to increased colon cancer risk. Genetic studies have identified immune-related susceptibility genes that only partially overlap with those involved in IBD. These observations suggest that PSC-UC may represent a distinct form of IBD. It remains to be elucidated whether different immune mechanisms are involved in colitis in these patients. We aimed to evaluate systemic and intestinal T cell and innate lymphoid cell [ILC] responses, previously associated with IBD, in patients with PSC-UC compared with patients with UC and healthy controls. Methods: Blood samples and colorectal biopsies were collected from patients with PSC-UC, patients with UC, and healthy controls. T cell and ILC phenotypes were analysed by
Inflammatory bowel diseases, ulcerative colitis and Crohns disease are considered to be of autoimmune origin, but the etiology of irritable bowel syndrome remains elusive. Furthermore, classifying patients into irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel diseases can be difficult without invasive testing and holds important treatment implications. Our aim was to assess the ability of gene expression profiling in blood to differentiate among these subject groups. Transcript levels of a total of 45 genes in blood were determined by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). We applied three separate analytic approaches; one utilized a scoring system derived from combinations of ratios of expression levels of two genes and two different support vector machines. All methods discriminated different subject cohorts, irritable bowel syndrome from control, inflammatory bowel disease from control, irritable bowel syndrome from inflammatory bowel disease, and ulcerative colitis from Crohns
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is thought to result from either an abnormal immunological response to enteric flora or a normal immunological response to a specific pathogen. No study to date has combined both factors. The present studies were carried out with an immunologically manipulated mouse model of IBD. Mice homozygous for the severe combined immunodeficiency (scid) mutation develop IBD with adoptive transfer of CD4+ T cells expressing high levels of CD45RB (CD45RB(high) CD4+ T cells). These mice do not develop IBD in germfree conditions, implicating undefined intestinal flora in the pathogenesis of lesions. In controlled duplicate studies, the influence of a single murine pathogen, Helicobacter hepaticus, in combination with the abnormal immunological response on the development of IBD was assessed. The combination of H. hepaticus infection and CD45RB(high) CD4+ T-cell reconstitution resulted in severe disease expression similar to that observed in human IBD. This study demonstrates ...
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic inflammatory condition caused by an aberrant immune response to microbial components of the gastrointestinal tract. Plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) are innate immune cells specialized in the production of type I interferons and were recently implicated in the pathogenesis of autoimmune disorders such as lupus and scleroderma. While pDCs were shown to infiltrate intestinal mucosa of IBD patients and proposed to participate in intestinal inflammation, their net contribution to the disease remains unclear. We addressed this question by targeting the pDC-specific transcription factor TCF4 (E2-2) in experimental IBD caused by deficiency of Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASP) or of interleukin-10 (IL-10). Monoallelic Tcf4 deletion, which was previously shown to abrogate experimental lupus, did not affect autoimmunity manifestations or colitis in WASP-deficient animals. Furthermore, conditional biallelic Tcf4 targeting resulted in a near-complete pDC
Canine inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic enteropathy of unknown etiology, although microbiome dysbiosis, genetic susceptibility, and dietary and/or environmental factors are hypothesized to be involved in its pathogenesis. Since some of the current therapies are associated with severe side effects, novel therapeutic modalities are needed. A new oral supplement for long-term management of canine IBD containing chondroitin sulfate (CS) and prebiotics (resistant starch, β-glucans and mannaoligosaccharides) was developed to target intestinal inflammation and oxidative stress, and restore normobiosis, without exhibiting any side effects. This double-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled trial in dogs with IBD aims to evaluate the effects of 180 days administration of this supplement together with a hydrolyzed diet on clinical signs, intestinal histology, gut microbiota, and serum biomarkers of inflammation and oxidative stress. Twenty-seven client-owned biopsy-confirmed IBD dogs were included

The aim of this thesis is to study treatment of inflammatory bowel disease with respect to an acute severe attack of ulcerative colitis and endoscopic balloon dilation in stricturing Crohns disease.. A retrospective follow-up was made in 158 patients who were given intensive intravenous corticosteroid treatment due a severe, moderate, or mild attack of ulcerative colitis between 1975 and 1982. After 10 years, the colectomy frequency in the severe disease group was 64%, and 49% and28% in the moderate and mild groups, respectively. Severity of the original attack did not influence the subsequent clinical course with respect to colectomy.. In 2005, a controlled Swedish-Danish trial of infliximab as rescue therapy in an acute severe attack of steroid refractory ulcerative colitis showed that colectomy frequencies after 3 months were lower in infliximab-treated patients (29%) compared to placebo-treated patients (67%). After 3 years, a statistically significantly lower colectomy frequency remained ...
Crohns disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) are two pathotypes of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) with unique pathology, risk factors and significant morbidity. To estimate incidence and identify IBD risk factors in a US military population, a healthy subset of the US population, using information from the Millennium Cohort Study. Incident IBD was identified from medical encounters from 2001 to 2009 or by self-report. Our primary risk factor of interest, infectious gastroenteritis, was identified from medical encounters and self-reported post-deployment health assessments. Other potential risk factors were assessed using self-reported survey responses and military personnel files. Hazard ratios were estimated using Cox proportional hazards analysis. We estimated 23.2 and 21.9 diagnoses per 100 000 person-years, respectively, for CD and UC. For CD, significant risk factors included [adjusted hazard ratio (aHR), 95% confidence interval]: current smoking (aHR: 2.7, 1.4-5.1), two life ...

TUESDAY, Aug. 15, 2017 (HealthDay News) - Fecal calprotectin adds most to discrimination between pediatric patients with and without inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), according to a meta-analysis published online Aug. 14 in JAMA Pediatrics.. Gea A. Holtman, Ph.D., from the University Medical Center Groningen in the Netherlands, and colleagues examined whether adding laboratory markers to evaluation of signs and symptoms improves accuracy when diagnosing pediatric IBD. Individual patient data were requested from the authors of the studies reviewed; the authors of eight of the 16 eligible studies (1,120 patients) provided their datasets.. The researchers found that, when added to evaluation of symptoms, all blood markers and fecal calprotectin individually significantly improved the discrimination between pediatric patients with and those without IBD. Fecal calprotectin was the best marker, which improved the area under the curve of symptoms by 0.26. Erythrocyte sedimentation rate was the ...
Background: The Faroe Islands currently have the highest recorded inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) incidence in the world.. Objective: This study investigated environmental risk factors for IBD in the Faroese population.. Methods: Environmental exposure data including lifestyle risk factors and neurotoxicants collected for over 30 years were retrieved from the Childrens Health and the Environment in the Faroes (CHEF) cohorts including mainly mother-child pairs, with exposure data collected from pregnant mothers. For lifestyle risk factors, the incidence of IBD and ulcerative colitis (UC) was calculated as the rate ratio (RR) with 95% confidence intervals (CI) in exposed versus non-exposed persons. For neurotoxicants RR was calculated for persons with high versus low exposure.. Results: Six cohorts included 5698 persons with complete follow-up data and at least one exposure, and 37 were diagnosed with IBD. For pilot whale/blubber, the RR was 1.02 (95% CI, 0.48-2.18); RR of 1.01 for fish (95% CI, ...

BACKGROUND: Specific nutrients or foods have been inconsistently associated with ulcerative colitis (UC) or Crohns disease (CD) risks. Thus, we investigated associations between diet as a whole, as dietary patterns, and UC and CD risks. METHODS: Within the prospective EPIC (European Prospective Investigation into Cancer) study, we set up a nested matched case-control study among 366,351 participants with inflammatory bowel disease data, including 256 incident cases of UC and 117 of CD, and 4 matched controls per case. Dietary intake was recorded at baseline from validated food frequency questionnaires. Incidence rate ratios of developing UC and CD were calculated for quintiles of the Mediterranean diet score and a posteriori dietary patterns produced by factor analysis. RESULTS: No dietary pattern was associated with either UC or CD risks. However, when excluding cases occurring within the first 2 years after dietary assessment, there was a positive association between a high sugar and soft drinks
Results Between April 2014 and November 2016, one hundred-thirty six patients were consecutively enrolled. A definite diagnosis was obtained in 112 patients (72 SpA and 40 non-SpA). Diagnosis was not made in the remaining 24 patients. Seventy-two SpA patients (62 with undifferentiated SpA, 6 with psoriatic arthritis, 2 with AS, 1 with inflammatory bowel disease-associated arthritis and 1 with reactive arthritis) and 40 non-SpA patients were investigated in this study. In ultrasound findings, SpA patients showed power Doppler (PD) signals of the articular synovium (57%), tendon sheath synovium (71%) and enthesis (94%). A PD signal for at least one enthesis sites was the most useful finding for differentiation of SpA from non-SpA (sensitivity 94%; specificity 85%; accuracy 91%; positive likelihood ratio 6.3) regarding ultrasound findings. In logistic regression analysis, fulfillment of peripheral ASAS criteria, that of Amors criteria, and presence of PD signals at least one enthesis sites were ...

Objective. The prevalence of anemia in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has been broadly described. The recurrence, type and burden of anemia remain unenlightened. The primary objective was to describe this. The secondary objective was to evaluate the implementation of European guidelines. Materials and methods. This longitudinal follow-up study included 300 IBD outpatients from six centers in Scandinavia. Patients were enrolled in a research cohort, in which each center included 5% of their IBD cohort. The study was prospectively planned, while data were retrospectively collected. The burden of anemia was calculated as number of months with anemia. A Markov model was used to calculate the probabilities of transitioning between stages. The European guidelines were used as the standard for anemia management. Results. Anemia affected andgt; 50% of IBD outpatients during the 2-year observation period. Totally, 20% of the total observation time was spent in anemia. Over the 7200 months of ...
This prospective population based survey is the largest such study of childhood inflammatory bowel disease to date and the first to document provision of care across Great Britain and Ireland.1 The study found considerable variation in care in terms of initial investigations and treatment when examined either by the number of cases reported by an institution or by the type of specialist gastrointestinal input (adult or paediatric gastroenterologist).. At present two thirds of children aged less than 16 years have some input from a paediatric gastroenterologist at diagnosis, but one tenth have their initial management provided solely by an adult gastroenterologist, and a third have some of their care provided by adult services. It is likely that there are differences in the provision of specialist paediatric gastroenterology services in Great Britain and Ireland. This survey was not designed to determine whether the observed regional variation in use of paediatric gastroenterology services was ...
