Measurement of airway dimensions by 3 ‐d ct in inflammatory bowel disease patients
CONCLUSIONS: our results support ABP 501 as an effective and well-tolerated drug, with a good interchangeability with its originator for the treatment of Crohn's disease. PMID: 32054272 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Assaraf J, Lambrescak E, Lefèvre JH, de Parades V, Bourguignon J, Etienney I, Taouk M, Atienza P, Zeitoun JD Abstract Purpose: Anal fistula is a common condition in proctology, usually requiring surgical treatment. Few risk factors are clearly identified based on solid evidence. Our research objective was to determine whether a history of anal surgery was a risk factor for subsequent anal fistula. Methods: We conducted a case-control study from January 1st 2012 through December 31st 2013 in our tertiary center. 280 cases that underwent surgery for anal fistula and 123 control patients seeking a ...
Conclusion: Two-thirds of the patients demonstrated stable clinical benefit from maintenance IFX. The results show steroid-sparing efficacy as well as improved quality of life and reduced need for surgery. PMID: 32052663 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: The MDR1/ABCB1 gene polymorphism rs 1045642 may be involved in the pathogenesis of CRC and this relationship may be sex-specific for males. However, further population studies are necessary to assess this relationship. PMID: 32051713 [PubMed]
We strive to educate medical providers of the possibility of cellular transformation occurring as a parastomal complication and to emphasize the importance of close monitoring, as there is a risk, although low, of subsequent malignant transformation. AbstractWe strive to educate medical providers of the possibility of cellular transformation occurring as a parastomal complication and to emphasize the importance of close monitoring, as there is a risk, although low, of subsequent malignant transformation.
CONCLUSION: According to our experience, a multidisciplinary team is recommended to manage complex therapies improving AE reporting and promoting greater therapeutic adherence. . PMID: 32053103 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Abstract Evaluation and management of acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding focus on etiologies originating distally to the ligament of Treitz. Diverticular disease is the most common source, accounting for 40% of cases. Hemorrhoids, angiodysplasia, infectious colitis, and inflammatory bowel disease are other common sources. Initial evaluation should focus on obtaining the patient's history and performing a physical examination, including evaluation of hemodynamic status. Subsequent evaluation should be based on the suspected etiology. Most patients should undergo colonoscopy for diagnostic and therapeutic purpose...
ConclusionsAbnormal gut motility may be important in the clinical setting of IBD. However, additional data obtained with modern techniques (e.g., magnetic resonance imaging) are needed to individuate in a more precise manner gastrointestinal motor dysfunctions, to understand the nature of clinical manifestations and properly tailor the treatment of patients.

IzakeAbstractTumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) is a cytokine that plays a critical role in medical conditions such cardiovascular diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, Alzheimer’s and cancer. Herein, we present a new method for the determination of TNF-α by surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS). A new benzothiazole azo dye (BAN) was used as a Raman probe to detect the cytokine after its selective extraction from bloo...
