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...

(PLOS) Bacteria associated with Crohn's disease rely on multiple stress responses to survive, multiply, and tolerate antibiotics within white blood cells called macrophages, according to a study published November 14, 2019 in the open-access journal PLOS Pathogens by Olivier Esp é li of the College de France and PSL Research University in Paris, France, and colleagues.

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...

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]

In conclusion, a molecularly distinct pro-inflammatory CD14+ subpopulation accumulates in inflamed colon, drives intestinal inflamma tory T-cell responses, and thus, might contribute to CD disease severity.

Adalimumab versus azathioprine to halt the progression of bowel damage in Crohn's disease: application of Lémann Index. Scand J Gastroenterol. 2019 Nov 06;:1-7 Authors: Ribaldone DG, Caviglia GP, Pellicano R, Vernero M, Italia A, Morino M, Saracco GM, Astegiano M Abstract Background: The Lémann Index (LI) was recently developed to evaluate the cumulative bowel damage in patients with Crohn's disease (CD).Aims: To search for a difference between adalimumab and azathioprine to halt the progression of bowel damage in active CD, using the LI.Methods: A single-centre, retrospective study was c...
