The effect of Adacolumn® on ulcerative colitis with COVID-19. Rev Esp Enferm Dig. 2020 Jun 04;112:511 Authors: Pérez Roldán F, Bernardos Martín ME, González Carro P Abstract Crespo et al. comment on the influence of immunomodulators and biological drugs on ulcerative colitis and SARS-CoV-2 infection. Granulo-monocytoapheresis is a treatment used in ulcerative colitis outbreaks, whose mechanism of action is to selectively retain activated granulocytes and monocytes, in order to reduce the inflammatory process.

(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.

This study aimed to present the longitudinal course of height, weight, and body mass index (BMI) of children from IBD diagnosis to 18  months of follow-up, and to describe the impact of BMI on the clinical course of the disease. One hundred and fifty-two children were identified, of whom 85 had Crohn’s disease (CD) and 67 had ulcerative colitis (UC). During a median (interquartile range) follow-up of 2.95 (1.73–4.5) years, w eight and BMI Z-scores increased in the first 18 months since diagnosis in both the CD (P

This study aimed to investigate the specific regulatory roles of microRNA-219-5p (miR-219-5p) on ulcerative colitis (UC), and reveal the potential mechanisms relating with the differentiation of Treg/Th17 cells. Methods: The mouse model of chronic UC was established by oral administration of 3% dextran sodium sulfate for three cycles. After intravenous injected with lentivirus (LV)-miR-219-5p for 24 h, the disease activity index (DAI), colon length, as well as the serum levels of Interleukin (IL)-6, -17A, -21, and -23 were measured. In addition, the histopathological changes in colon tissues were observed by Hematoxylin...

We report the case of a 9-year-old female patient affected by ulcerative colitis and recently treated for an oral candidiasis, who experienced a relapse in her ulcerative colitis (PUCAI 50), preceded by the return of whitish lesions in the oral cavity, initially misdiagnosed and unsuccessfully treated as candidiasis and then recognized as pyostomatitis vegetans. Bloody diarrhea was treated with oral beclomethasone, with rapid remission of ulcerative colitis and disappearance of pyostomatitis vegetans. After 2 years, ulcerative colitis is in sustained remission with oral mesalamine and pyostomatitis vegetans has not recurre...

In this study, we further explored the effect of sucralose on tumorigenesis and the possible mechanism involved using the AOM/DSS mouse model. First, 1.5 mg/ml sucralose was included in the drinking water for 6 weeks to reach a relatively stable phase of impact on gut microbiota. Then, 10 mg/kg AOM was administered through intraperitoneal injection. Seven days later, 2.5% DSS was put in the drinking water for 5 days, followed by 2 weeks without DSS. The 5 days of DSS was then repeated, and the mice were sacrificed 6 weeks after AOM injection. The results showed that sucralose caused significant increases in the number and ...

DiscussionOn April 30, 2014, the World Health Organization published an alarming report on antibiotic resistance. Finding an alternative medical treatment to antibiotics in order to prevent relapses of pouchitis is therefore becoming increasingly important given the risk posed by multiresistant bacteria. Moreover, if the results of this study are conclusive, FMT, which is less expensive than biologics, could become a routine treatment in the future.Trial,NCT03524352. Registered on 14 May 2018.
