90-Day Specific Readmission for Clostridium difficile Infection After Hospitalization With an Inflammatory Bowel Disease Flare: Outcomes and Risk Factors, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
Conclusions The 90-day CDI-specific readmission rate after the index admission of IBD flares was 0.1%. We found risk factors for CDI-associated readmissions such as history of Parkinson ' s disease, prior CDI, HIV-positive status, and alcohol abuse disorder. Finally, our study also revealed a high health care cost, charges, and burden. (Source: Current Awareness Service for Health (CASH))

Ben-Gurion University researchers developing probiotic yogurt-based drugs
(American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev) " This is the first demonstration that virulence of human pathogenic bacteria can be mitigated by molecules secreted in probiotic milk products, such as yogurt or kefir, " said BGU Prof. Jelinek. " Our research illuminates the mechanism by which milk fermented probiotics can protect against pathogenic infections and aid the immune system. We look forward to administering these drug candidates to patients who are experiencing a cytokine storm due to COVID-19 infection, or people suffering from acute inflammatory bowel pathologies, such as Crohn's disease.

Crohn's disease may be caused by immune signaling failure
(Scripps Research Institute) Scientists find that T cells in the small intestine prevent bile acid-driven stress and inflammation. The work highlights a completely new direction in Crohn's disease research, and potentially, its treatment. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Possible trigger for Crohn's disease identified
(McMaster University) AIEC bacteria grow in a biofilm that coats cells lining the intestinal wall, protecting them from both the immune system and antibiotics. In this research, the team identified a critical protein structure on the surface of the bacteria that allow them to grow in biofilms. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

What Are Indications for a Ileostomy?
Discussion There are three types of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD): Crohn’s disease (CD) – can affect entire gastrointestinal tract but often is discontinuous (i.e., has skipped areas), has transmural inflammation and disease, has granulomas Ulcerative colitis (UC) – affects the colon, is continuous (i.e., has no skipped areas) and has superficial mucosal ulcerations Unclassified IBD – has chronic colitis but not specific features of CD or UC The specific pathogenesis appears to be multifactorial with having a genetic predisposition (1.6 – 30% risk of developing UC if patient has first deg...

A T-cell stimulatory protein and interleukin-10 synergize to prevent gut inflammation
(University of Alabama at Birmingham) Researchers have found an unexpected synergy between a T-cell stimulatory protein -- the ICOS ligand -- and interleukin-10, an immunoregulatory cytokine, to prevent inflammatory bowel disease in mice. The study will aid the understanding of, and future research into, this immune disorder, which includes Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. About 1.6 million Americans have inflammatory bowel disease. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Common inflammatory bowel disease treatment linked to reduced COVID-19 antibody response
(University of Exeter) The findings arose from the CLARITY study, which recruited 6,935 patients with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis from 92 UK hospitals between September and December 2020. It found that fewer than half of people with IBD who were treated with infliximab had detectable antibodies after SARS-CoV-2 infection, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
