Patients with longstanding inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) (ulcerative colitis [UC] or colonic Crohn ’s disease [CD]) have an increased risk of colorectal cancer (CRC). Surveillance colonoscopy (SC) is recommended to detect dysplasia and techniques are variable in clinical practice. Random biopsies remain controversial and even panellists from recent international consensus could not reach agreem ent on this issue when performing SC with chromoendoscopy. Recent data supports its use on high risk patients.

Patients with longstanding ulcerative colitis (UC) or colonic Crohn ’s disease (CD) have an increased risk of colorectal cancer (CRC). The overall prevalence of low grade dysplasia (LGD) in this population is around 10%. Surveillance colonoscopy (SC) is recommended to detect dysplasia. Although most dysplasia in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is vi sible, SC techniques are variable in clinical practice.

By just engaging in the basic strategies in the Wheat Belly Total Health, Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox, or Undoctored programs, many mild cases of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, SIBO, reverse. These efforts thereby restore your ability to ingest prebiotic fibers without diarrhea, bloating, gas, abdominal discomfort, joint pain, and dark emotional feelings. Many people thereby are relieved of irritable bowel syndrome symptoms, fibromyalgia, or restless leg syndrome, or have greater power in reversing autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. Unfortunately, not everybody enjoys reversal of SIBO with our b...

This study showed a good safety and tolerability profile of the studied substance (Monteleone et al., 2012). Since TGFβ has been described to induce the profibrogenetic response of fibroblasts, patients were monitored for 6 months with intestinal ultrasonography, not showing signs of intestinal stenosis. Moreover, half of the patients maintained remission during the 6 months follow up period (Zorzi et al., 2012). Afterwards, a randomized, double-blind, phase 2 study was conducted in CD patients with inflammatory lesions in the terminal ileum and/or right colon, with steroid-dependence/resistance, randomized to three ...

Authors: Lv C, Gu H, Zhao X, Huang L, Zhou S, Zhi F Abstract BACKGROUND Activated Cdc42 kinase1 (ACK1) is a non-receptor tyrosine kinase which is critical for cell survival, proliferation, and migration. Genomic amplification of ACK1 has been reported in multiple human cancers. We aimed to investigate ACK1 protein expression in colorectal mucosa with inflammation and neoplasm, and to evaluate its correlation with disease activity and severity. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 250 individuals who underwent total colonoscopy were collected randomly from January 2007 to May 2013 in Nanfang Hospital, Guangzhou, China. C...

Patients with long‐standing inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) colitis have a 2.4‐fold higher risk of developing colorectal cancer (CRC) than the general population, for both ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD) colitis. Surveillance colonoscopy is recommended to detect early CRC and dysplasia. Most dysplasia discovered in patients with IBD is actually visible. Recently published SCENIC (Surveillance for Colorectal Endoscopic Neoplasia Detection and Management in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Patients: International Consensus Recommendations) consensus statements provide unifying recommendations for the optimal ...

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month, today’s TBT post provides some helpful information on colorectal cancer. Michelle was a healthy, active 47 year old. She tried to eat right and she exercised. It looked like the hard work was paying off: no health issues and lots of energy. Her work in the healthcare field motivated her to see her doctors regularly for checkups, to get mammograms and to have her blood work done annually. She knew she was getting close to the magical age of 50 and that soon she would need to get a colonoscopy to screen for colorectal cancer.  Since she had no family history of the disease sh...

Authors: Hosoe N, Ogata H Abstract Endoscopy plays a significant role in the diagnosis, management, and surveillance of colorectal cancer (CRC) and inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs). Moreover, magnifying endoscopy and image-enhanced endoscopy has a crucial role in the clinical setting. Recently, a super-magnifying endoscope has been developed, and two devices, confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE) and an endocytoscopy system (ECS), which allow in vivo microscopic inspection of the microstructural mucosal features of the gastrointestinal tract, are currently available. Studies on the use of ECS in CRC were reported b...

CONCLUSION: Many uncertainties still remain whetherdye chromoendoscopy with targeted biopsies will be established as standard practice. However, optical enhancement endoscopic techniques are promising to perform surveillance colonoscopy with targeted biopsies for better assessment and management of the dysplastic lesions in IBD. Further studies are required to determine the best strategy for the diagnosis and treatment of dysplasia in IBD patients. PMID: 26446684 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Long‐standing ulcerative colitis patients are known to be at a high risk for the development of colorectal cancer. Therefore, surveillance colonoscopy has been recommended for those patients. Because colitis‐associated colorectal cancer may be difficult to identify even by colonoscopy, a random biopsy method has been recommended. However, the procedure of performing a random biopsy is tedious and its effectiveness has also not yet been demonstrated. Instead, targeted biopsy with chromoendoscopy has gained popularity in European and Asian countries. Chromoendoscopy is generally considered to be an effective tool for ulc...
