Conclusions: There is a need to improve rates of environmental risk-reduction behaviors and reduce disparities in the practice of these behaviors through efforts to increase awareness. Public health officials should target outreach to specific populations that do not practice risk-reduction behaviors.

Clin Endosc. 2021 Sep 23. doi: 10.5946/ce.2021.149. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND/AIMS: We have been developing artificial intelligence based polyp histology prediction (AIPHP) method to classify Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) magnifying colonoscopy images to predict the hyperplastic or neoplastic histology of polyps. Our aim was to analyze the accuracy of AIPHP and narrow-band imaging international colorectal endoscopic (NICE) classification based histology predictions and also to compare the results of the two methods.METHODS: We studied 373 colorectal polyp samples taken by polypectomy from 279 patients. The docum...

Cutaneous involvement is one of the most common extraintestinal manifestations of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). More commonly, pyoderma gangrenosum and erythema nodosum are noted, but psoriasis, aphthous stomatitis, Sweet ’s syndrome, and vasculitis may also occur. Leukocytoclastic vasculitis (LCV) is a rare cutaneous manifestation, characterized by the appearance of palpable purpura, urticaria, and ulcer-necrotic lesions predominantly in the lower extremities that improve with immunosuppressive therapy. In this ca se, we report a patient with CD and LCV. We also searched the literature on the diagnosis and treat...

In this study, we performed an integrated analysis first using 4 different datasets (discovery cohorts) to identify miRNAs associated with colorectal cancer development, unveil their role in this disease by identifying putative targets and regulatory networks and investigate their ability to serve as biomarkers. We have identified 26 differentially expressed miRNAs which interact with frequently deregulated genes known to participate in commonly altered pathways in colorectal cancer. Most of these miRNAs have high diagnostic power, and their prognostic potential is evidenced by panels of 5 miRNAs able to predict the outcom...

Intern Med. 2021 Sep 18. doi: 10.2169/internalmedicine.8031-21. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIntestinal mucosal injury that develops as a complication of tocilizumab (TCZ) is usually associated with diverticulosis. We herein report a rare case of TCZ-induced intestinal mucosal injury in the absence of diverticulosis. A 74-year-old woman suffering from rheumatoid arthritis started taking TCZ. Six months later, she complained of hematochezia and abdominal pain. Colonoscopy revealed multiple ulcers spreading from the cecum to the transverse colon but no diverticulosis. These lesions were cured at three months after the disco...

By HANS DUVEFELT Perhaps it is because I love doctoring so much that I find some of the tools and tasks of my trade so tediously frustrating. I keep wishing the technology I work with wasn’t so painfully inept. On my 2016 iPhone SE I can authorize a purchase, a download or a money transfer by placing my thumb on the home button. In my EMR, when I get a message (also called “TASK” – ugh) from the surgical department that reads “patient is due for 5-year repeat colonoscopy and needs [insurance] referral”, things are a lot more complicated, WHICH THEY SHOULDN’T HAVE TO BE! Fo...
