Etanercept Tx for Autoimmune Disease May Up Risk for IBD

MONDAY, July 15, 2019 -- Patients with autoimmune diseases have an increased risk for being diagnosed with Crohn disease (CD) or ulcerative colitis (UC) while under treatment with etanercept, according to a study published online July 2 in...

Abstract Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which includes ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD), is a chronic autoimmune disease. At present, worms and their products has been shown to have protective effects on immune-mediated diseases. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the effect of the recombination Trichinella spiralis (T. spiralis, Ts) adult serine protease-like protein rTs-ADSp-7 on a 2,4,6-trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS)-induced CD mouse model. Colitis was induced by intrarectal administration of a TNBS solution. The disease activity index (DAI), which included weight loss, diarrhoea, and b...

(University of California - Riverside) A protein-coding gene associated with autoimmune diseases such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, collectively referred to as inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD, will be the focus of new research in the School of Medicine at the University of California, Riverside. The work is made possible by a National Institutes of Health grant exceeding $2.5 million.

Abstract BACKGROUND/AIMS: The analysis of genes thought to be important in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has shown that more than half of IBD-related genes are also associated with other autoimmune diseases. The aim of this study was to detect a possible association between the polymorphisms of the (-670 A/G, -1377 G/A) fFas cell surface death receptor (FAS) gene promoter and susceptibility to IBD in the Turkish population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In total, 125 patients with IBD, including 73 ulcerative colitis and 52 Crohn's disease and also 101 healthy controls without any pathological signs of IBD were c...

szka Corticotropin (ACTH, previously an adrenocorticotropic hormone) is used in the diagnosis and treatment of pituitary gland disorders, adrenal cortex disorders, and other diseases, including autoimmune polymyositis, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis. So far, the ointment dosage form containing ACTH for use on the skin is unknown. Therefore, it seems appropriate to develop a semi-solid formulation with corticotropin. Emulsion ointments were prepared using an Unguator based on the cream base Lekobaza® containing corticotropin in different conc...

CONCLUSIONS: High-certainty evidence suggests that tofacitinib is superior to placebo for maintenance of clinical and endoscopic remission at 52 weeks in participants with moderate-to-severe UC in remission. The optimal dose of tofacitinib for maintenance therapy is unknown. High-certainty evidence suggests that there is no increased risk of AEs with tofacitinib compared to placebo. However, we are uncertain about the effect of tofacitinib on SAEs due to the low number of events. Further studies are required to look at the long-term effectiveness and safety of using tofacitinib and other oral JAK inhibitors as maintenance ...

Sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) receptor modulators are being developed to treat autoimmune-mediated diseases, including ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn ’s disease (CD). Amiselimod (AMS), a second-generation S1P receptor modulator, was developed to reduce bradycardia associated with other S1P receptor modulators, including fingolimod.

Anti-TNF agents are an established treatment modality for ulcerative colitis (UC); however, as many as 30% of patients do not respond to anti-TNF agents, and almost 50% of responders lose clinical benefits after a year of treatment. Furthermore, numerous safety concerns are associated with long-term use of anti-TNF agents. An alternative treatment in development for autoimmune-mediated diseases, including Crohn ’s disease (CD) and UC, are sphingosine 1-phosphate receptor modulators such as amiselimod (AMS).

CONCLUSIONS: At adolescence, both Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are associated with multiple comorbidities, not limited to autoimmune disorders. PMID: 31801156 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Objectives: To test the hypothesis that familial Mediterranean fever (FMF)-associated autoinflammation may exaggerate the tendency toward adaptive immunopathology or spondyloarthritis (SpA)-associated disorders including major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I associated disorders but not classical MHC class II-associated disorders that exhibit transplacental autoimmunity including myasthenia gravis and pemphigus.Methods: Seven thousand seven hundred forty-seven FMF patients and 10,080 age- and sex-matched controls in the Clalit Health Services medical database were identified and compared in terms of prevalence of ...

Conclusions: The percentage of individuals sensitized to inhalants in CD and to inhalants and foods in UC, were higher than corresponding results in BD. However, whereas allergen positive reactions in CD were comparable to those in BD, they were reduced in UC because of the few UC reactions to food allergens. This contrasts previous data and the study also points to sensitization to inhalants as a potential factor in the complex pathogenesis of IBD. PMID: 31524013 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
