Conclusions: Exclusive enteral nutrition has proven to be effective in inducing remission of Crohn ’ s Disease, and the use of partial enteral nutrition for maintenance treatment has shown promising results. Other modified oral diets are inconclusive concerning their effectiveness, requiring further randomized controlled clinical trials.RESUMO Objetivos: Revisar a literatura quanto à terapia nutricional oral e enteral e verificar evidências de sua eficácia tanto para tratamento quanto para prevenção de recidivas e redução de sintomas das doenças inflamatór...

Author´s answer to: "Effect of adacolumn® in ulcerative colitis with COVID-19". Rev Esp Enferm Dig. 2020 Jun 04;112:511-512 Authors: Hinojosa Del Val J, Crespo J, Pérez-Cuadrado Martínez E Abstract We have read with interest the article published by Pérez et al., we really appreciate their interesting comments and would like to qualify some points. With the except of the clinical practice, currently there is no recommendation based on scientific evidence about the use of apheresis in the treatment of ulcerative colitis (UC), and even less in Crohn's disease (CD)...

We report a 34-year-old woman with ileal Crohn's disease diagnosed 14 years ago, with the development of extensive, exudative scalp lesions after adalimumab therapy. Biopsies from skin lesions were compatible with vulgar psoriasis. The patient reports no personal or family history of psoriasis. Due to persistence and further worsening of skin lesions, paradoxical etiology to adalimumab was presumed and the drug was stopped with complete resolution of skin lesions and intestinal disease in remission under methotrexate. Due to pregnancy-planification methotrexate was stopped and, 8 months-after, systemic steroid-therapy was ...

(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.

We have recently observed a case of acute kidney Injury (AKI) in a patient with Crohn's disease (CD) receiving isoniazid (INH) prophylaxis for latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI). While the most common INH-related adverse events are well-known and include asymptomatic elevation of serum liver enzyme concentrations, peripheral neuropathy and hepatotoxicity, INH-induced AKI is a very rare event that has been occasionally reported in the literature particularly in pediatric patients [1-3].

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 ...

AbstractPurposeTo determine the incidence and clinical relevance of extra-intestinal incidental findings (IF) in a cohort of patients with proven or suspected Crohn disease (CD) examined with magnetic resonance enterography (MR-E) in a single University Centre.MethodsBetween January 2018 and June 2019, 182 patients with proven or suspected CD with a planned first MR-E examination, were retrospectively included in this study. Incidental findings were considered as any abnormality identified in the absence of previous clinically suspected or known disease. IF were categorized as unremarkable, benign or potentially relevant f...

Add “improving” before “detection”? PET/MR is beneficial particularly in pediatric patients who undergo recurrent imaging, such as those with cancer or chronic inflammatory disease. PET/MR has advantages compared with PET/computed tomography, including decreased radiation exposure and superior c haracterization of soft tissue. Ongoing challenges include reducing examination duration and costs and detection of pulmonary lesions. Accepted clinical applications of PET/MR in pediatric patients are evaluation of epileptic foci and diagnosis, staging, and follow-up of solid tumors. PET/MR also ma y have a...
