Protective effect of Gloeostereum incarnatum on ulcerative colitis via modulation of Nrf2/NF‑κB signaling in C57BL/6 mice. Mol Med Rep. 2020 Aug 05;: Authors: Li X, Liu X, Zhang Y, Zhang Y, Liu S, Zhang N, Li Y, Wang D Abstract Chronic non‑specific inflammatory cell infiltration of the colon is generally considered to be the cause of ulcerative colitis (UC).

Authors: Pettersson N, Kragsbjerg F, Hamrin A, Bergman S, Forsblad-d'Elia H, Karling P Abstract BACKGROUNDS/AIMS: Musculoskeletal symptoms are common in patients with ulcerative colitis (UC), but no study has compared the prevalence of chronic pain to controls from a general population. METHODS: Patients with UC (n = 1164) and controls (n = 3867) were sent questionnaires comprising demography, history of pain, pain localization and UC patients' Patient-Simple Clinical Colitis Activity Index. Chronic regional pain (ChRP) and chronic widespread pain (ChWP) were defined as having pain f...

This article reviews nonbiologic immunosuppressive agents in the induction and maintenance of remission of ulcerative colitis. Based on meta-analyses and North American guidelines, azathioprine, mercaptopurine, and methotrexate monotherapy are not recommended for induction therapy. Thiopurines are recommended in combination with infliximab. Tofacitinib has been shown to be an effective induction agent. Cyclosporine or tacrolimus are calcineurin inhibitors that can be used as induction therapy. Thiopurine monotherapy is suggested or recommended as maintenance therapy for patients who have achieved steroid-induced remission....

Conclusions: These findings suggest that a decrease in the tear volume in UC was associated with a functional decline in the inflamed lacrimal gland. This result therefore provides useful information that could contribute to the development of treatment approaches for dry eye associated with UC. PMID: 32942916 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractBackgroundPatients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have numerous risk factors for low bone mineral density (BMD). We aimed to study the prevalence of low BMD in IBD and the factors associated with it.MethodsBMD was measured by radial quantitative ultrasound, and clinical and biochemical characteristics were compared in prospectively enrolled patients and healthy age and gender-matched controls. Chi-square test,t test for independent samples, analysis of variance (ANOVA), Mann –WhitneyU test and Kruskal –WallisH tests were used as appropriate for univariate analysis to compare the characteristics b...
