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 ...

The better understanding of the mechanisms of inflammatory bowel disease has evolved from descriptive clinical data and genetically engineered animal models. It led to great interest in a variety of new therapeutic agents and procedures with novel actions. This review will ...
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 ...

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).

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: ...

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

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.

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a disease characterized by inflammation of the digestive, or gastrointestinal (GI) tract. IBD includes both ulcerative colitis and Crohns disease. Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease that causes long-lasting inflammation and sores (ulcers) in the innermost lining of your large intestine (colon) and rectum. Crohns disease can affect any part of the GI tract, from the mouth to the anus, but it is more commonly found at the end of the small intestine (the ileum) where it joins the beginning of the large intestine (or colon).. ...

Inflammatory bowel disease involves the digestive tract, which includes several organs including the stomach, large and small intestines and rectum. These organs are responsible for converting food into nutrients, which are then absorbed into the bloodstream to provide energy for our bodies. Inflammatory bowel disease is not the same thing as irritable bowel syndrome and refers to two chronic diseases that cause inflammation of the intestines: Crohns disease and Ulcerative Colitis. While these two diseases have many similarities, they also have some significant differences.

The microbiota in inflammatory bowel disease: current and therapeutic insights Erin R Lane,1 Timothy L Zisman,2 David L Suskind1 1Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Seattle Children’s Hospital, 2Division of Gastroenterology, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA Abstract: Inflammatory bowel disease is a heterogeneous group of chronic disorders that result from the interaction of the intestinal immune system with the gut microbiome. Until recently, most investigative efforts and therapeutic breakthroughs were centered on understanding and manipulating the altered mucosal immune response that characterizes these diseases. However, more recent studies have highlighted the important role of environmental factors, and in particular the microbiota, in disease onset and disease exacerbation. Advances in genomic sequencing technology and bioinformatics have facilitated an explosion of investigative inquiries into the composition and function of the intestinal microbiome in health and

In an effort to find new strategies to personalize treatment for pediatric patients, Seattle Childrens has opened the first clinical trial applying next-generation T-cell receptor (TCR) sequencing and single-cell gene expression analysis to better understand how the immune system drives both inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in pediatric autoimmunity patients and graft-versus host disease (GVHD) in pediatric bone marrow transplant (BMT) patients.. The PREDICT (Precision Diagnostics in Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Cellular Therapy and Transplantation) trial is expected to first provide clinicians new information about why IBD arises in children, allowing them to tailor treatment plans to each patient. The trial will later expand to include BMT patients with the goal of identifying the immunologic changes that occur when a patient develops GVHD, the deadliest complication associated with BMT. BMT is used to treat a range of pediatric conditions from leukemia to inherited bone marrow failure ...

13756 patients with inflammatory bowel disease and 71672 matched controls were included in the analysis, and of these 139 patients and 165 controls developed venous thromboembolism. Overall, patients with inflammatory bowel disease had a higher risk of venous thromboembolism than did controls (hazard ratio 3·4, 95% CI 2·7-4·3; p less than 0·0001; absolute risk 2·6 per 1000 per person-years). At the time of a flare, however, this increase in risk was much more prominent (8·4, 5·5-12·8; p less than 0·0001; 9·0 per 1000 person-years). This relative risk at the time of a flare was higher during non-hospitalised periods (15·8, 9·8-25·5; p less than 0·0001; 6·4 per 1000 person-years) than during hospitalised periods (3·2, 1·7-6·3; p=0·0006; 37·5 per 1000 person-years). ...

Mutations in apc which lead to activation of the Wnt signaling pathway are a hallmark of sporadic colon cancers but occur infrequently in colon cancers arising in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). There is evidence, however, that other components of the Wnt pathway may be altered in IBD-related colon cancer. In this study, we examined the expression the Wnt pathway components frizzled (Fz), the cell surface receptor, and disheveled (DVL), a family of cytoplasmic signal transduction molecules, in IBD and IBD-related colon cancer. Paraffin sections of normal and malignant colon tissues were obtained from patients with a history of ulcerative colitis and from controls with sporadic colon cancer. Tissue sections were stained with antibodies directed against Fz1/2 receptors and DVL1, DVL2 and DVL3 and antigen expression visualized by immunohistochemistry. Fz1/2 receptors were minimally expressed in normal IBD mucosa, were not expressed in IBD colon cancer, but exhibited strong ...
