Lemmen Marina Brizzio Brentar Ibrahim Ayada Alfian N. Wicaksono James A. Covington Marc A. Benninga Nanne K.H. de Boer Tim G.J. de Meij Endoscopic evaluation is mandatory in establishing the diagnosis of pediatric inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), but unfortunately carries a high burden on patients. Volatile organic compounds (VOC) have been proposed as alternative, noninvasive diagnostic biomarkers for IBD. The current study aimed to assess and compare the potential of fecal and urinary VOC as diagnostic biomarkers for pediatric IBD in an intention-to-diagnose cohort. In this cohort study, patients aged 4–17 years, referred to the outpatient clinic of a tertiary referral center under suspicion of IBD, were eligible to participate. The diagnosis was established by endoscopic and histopathologic assessment, participants who did not meet the criteria of IBD were allocated to the control group. Participants were instructed to concurrently collect a fecal and urinary sample prior to bowel lavage. Samples were analyzed by means of gas chromatography–ion mobility spectrometry. In total, five ulcerative colitis patients, five Crohn’s disease patients, and ten age and gender matched controls were included. ...

CONCLUSIONS: the prevalence of CeD in our patients with IBD was higher than that reported in the literature for other series of patients with IBD. A combination of anti-tTG testing and CeD genetics may screen patients for CeD in this population of patients with IBD. PMID: 31718200 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: The requirement for proctectomy after hemorrhoidectomy/skin tag excision appears to be secondary to the natural disease course of perianal Crohn’s disease rather than perianal intervention. Selective hemorrhoidectomy and skin tag excision in patients with well-controlled luminal disease should be considered. See Video Abstract at http://links.lww.com/DCR/B55.

Authors: Khorshidi M, Djafarian K, Aghayei E, Shab-Bidar S Abstract Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic inflammatory disorder which affects the gastrointestinal tract. Many factors, such as genetics, stress, and dietary patterns have been related to the risk of this disease. Adherence to a prudent/healthy dietary pattern, due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, help to reduce the risk of many chronic diseases such as IBD. The results from previous studies regarding the association between dietary patterns and risk of IBD, including Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), are in...

AbstractObjectiveIL23R plays an important role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The IL23R rs11209026 and rs10889677 polymorphisms have been shown to be associated with the development of Crohn ’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). But the results were inconsistent and inconclusive. So, we aim to investigate the genetic association between rs11209026 and rs10889677 polymorphisms and UC and CD risk by a meta-analysis.MethodsLiterature search was conducted through PubMed, CNKI, and web of science databases. Pooled OR and 95% CI was used to assess the association between the allelic, domina...

This study aimed to explore the clinical-pathologic similarities and differences in the IBD-associated CRC (IBD-CRC) between patients in China and Canada. METHODS: Data of 78 patients with IBD-CRC retrospectively retrieved from two representative medical institutions in Beijing (China) and Calgary (Canada) over the same past 13 years, including 25 (22 UC-associated and three CD-associated) from Beijing group and 53 (32 UC-associated and 21 CD-associated) from Calgary group, were compared with regards to their clinical and pathologic characteristics. RESULTS: Several known features of IBD-CRC were seen in both gro...

CONCLUSION: This study shows that IBD children present at diagnosis an increased frequency of circulating Tregs, probably as a compensative reaction to tissue inflammation. During the clinical remission, the Treg frequency diminishes, and concomitantly, their activation status increases. Notwithstanding, the high Treg density at diagnosis is not sufficient to counteract the inflammation in the childhood IBD. PMID: 31715619 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Upadacitinib (ABT-494) is a selective Janus kinase (JAK)1 inhibitor being developed for treatment of several inflammatory disorders. A population pharmacokinetic model was developed for upadacitinib using 11,658 plasma concentrations from 1145 subjects from 4 phase 1 and 5 phase 2 studies in healthy subjects and subjects with rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, or atopic dermatitis. A 2-compartment model with first-order absorption and lag time for the immediate-release formulation and mixed zero- and first-order absorption with lag time for the extended-release formulation, and lin...

Abstract Elective abdominal surgery for inflammatory bowel disease is common. Surgery for Crohn's disease is not curative, and treatment must be individualized to the disease process. Surgery for ulcerative colitis generally is curative but consideration of patient-specific factors is important for staging of the procedure and determining whether ileal pouch-anal anastomosis is appropriate.
