Integrated analysis of circRNAs and mRNAs expression profile revealed the involvement of hsa_circ_0007919 in the pathogenesis of ulcerative colitis

ConclusionsSeveral circRNAs were differentially expressed in UC. Hsa_circ_0007919 is related to clinical characteristics and epithelial integrity by binding to hsa-let-7a, hsa-miR-138 to regulate the target genes. CircRNAs, especially hsa_circ_0007919, are associated with the pathogenesis and development of UC, with potential diagnostic and therapeutic implications.

Authors: Chou JW, Lai HC, Chang CH, Cheng KS, Feng CL, Chen TW Abstract The incidence and prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are low but increasing in Taiwan. We aimed to investigate the epidemiology and clinical outcomes of IBD in central Taiwan. We retrospectively analyzed patients with IBD diagnosed at our hospital between January 2000 and September 2018. The diagnostic criteria were based on endoscopic and pathologic findings. Clinical characteristics, treatment regimens, and treatment outcomes were analyzed. A total of 190 patients with IBD were enrolled (80 with Crohn's disease (CD) and 110 with u...

Authors: Nasa M, Sharma Z, Lipi L, Sud R Abstract Abstract: Sweet syndrome,also known as acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis , is one of the rare cutaneous association of ulcerative colitis.Only few cases of Sweet syndrome associated with ulcerative colitis have been reported in literature. We herein describe a case of young female with acute exacerbation of ulcerative colitis associated with erythematous , papular skin lesions which on biopsy were consistent with Sweet syndrome. Treatment with intravenous steroids resulted in improvement of ulcerative colitis and disappearance of cutaneous lesions. Cutaneous les...

ConclusionThe diagnosis of severe acute UC in elderly patients with acute abdomen had been complicated by the distinctive physiology of this aged group with atypical presentation and markedly unreliable physical examination. Eventually, severe UC should always be kept in mind with a circumstance of abdominal pain in geriatric population.

However, vitamin D performs various immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-fibrotic actions. Autoimmune diseases result from an aberrant activation of the immune system, whereby the immune response is directed against harmless self-ant...

AbstractIntroductionPulmonary manifestations of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), albeit not rare, are largely overlooked in clinical practice. The role of exhaled nitric oxide (eNO) as an established biological marker of airway inflammation compels us to use it as a tool to investigate the exact nature of these manifestations.MethodsFractional eNO (FeNO) was measured in multiple flows, and with the use of a mathematical model, alveolar concentration of NO (CANO) and bronchial flux of NO (JawNO) were assessed in 27 patients with IBD [17 with Crohn ’s disease (CD) and 10 with ulcerative colitis (UC)] and in 39 healthy...

Abstract BACKGROUND AND AIM: Fecal calprotectin has successfully been widely recommended as a sensitive biomarker of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Recently, we have identified an excellent new fecal biomarker, B-cell activating factor (BAFF), as effective as fecal calprotectin for diagnosing intestinal inflammation. Here in this study, we sought to investigate the potential of fecal BAFF as a screening marker for gastrointestinal inflammation and neoplasms in patients with abdominal discomfort. METHODS: 230 patients with abdominal discomfort were prospectively enrolled into this study and fecal samples w...

AbstractPrior to the biologic era, the medical management of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) was dominated by the use of aminosalicylates, corticosteroids, and immunosuppressants. In the past two decades, the advent of biologic agents that target specific components of the immune response has greatly improved the care of patients with Crohn ’s disease and ulcerative colitis (UC). However, not all patients respond or maintain response to biologic therapy and some patients develop adverse events that necessitate treatment discontinuation. Furthermore, sensitization with formation of anti-drug antibodies ...
