Low-Literacy Instructions Enable Successful Completion of Fecal Immunochemical Tests
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States and a common cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide.1 Multiple randomized trials have shown that CRC screening reduces CRC incidence and mortality.2 As a result, several professional societies and the United States Preventative Services Task Force recommend CRC screening for all average-risk individuals aged 50 to 75 years. However, only 67% of average-risk individuals are up-to-date with CRC screening recommendations in 2016. (Source: Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology)

We are grateful for the interest shown in our study1 by Dai et  al.2 The authors note that our findings were in contrast to previous studies. However, only one prior study demonstrated a benefit to accelerated infliximab induction in acute severe ulcerative colitis (ASUC), and that too was only in the short-term.3 This benefit was not preserved at 2 years. Sin ce then, multiple studies including ours, which was conducted at 3 centers, have failed to show either a short-term or a long-term benefit of accelerated induction in ASUC.

Variants in STAT4 Associated With Cure of Chronic HBV Infection in HBeAg-positive Patients Treated With Pegylated Interferon-alpha
Variants in STAT4 (rs7574865) have been associated with seroconversion to hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg) and reduction in levels of hepatitis B virus (HBV) DNA in patients with chronic infection treated with interferon alpha (IFNA). We evaluated the associations among rs7574865, loss of HB surface antigen (HBsAg, a marker of functional cure of HBV infection), and response to treatment with pegylated IFNA (PegIFN) or nucleos(t)ide analogues (NUCs) in HBeAg-positive patients with chronic HBV infection.

Endoscopic Ultrasound Placement of Preloaded Fiducial Markers Shortens Procedure Time Compared to Back-Loaded Markers
Fiducial markers are inert radiopaque gold or carbon markers implanted in or near pancreatic tumor to demarcate areas for image-guided radiation therapy. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) pre-loaded fiducial needles (PLNs) have been developed to circumvent technical issues associated with traditional back-loaded fiducials (BLNs). We performed a randomized controlled trial to compare procedure times in patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma undergoing EUS-guided placement of BLNs vs PLNs.

Procedural Volume and Colectomy Complications
The relationship between procedural volume and colectomy complications is considered established in adults,1 but it has not been evaluated fully in children. Very few health care providers would seriously doubt that such a relationship exists for children, and in fact many would assume that it is even more pronounced among our youngest patients. By using epidemiologic methods to study the problem and its magnitude, Egberg et  al2 have provided us with an opportunity to further explore variations in surgical availability and outcomes of colectomy performed for pediatric ulcerative colitis.

Genetic Factors Account for Some Disparities in Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease Among Hispanic Subgroups
Nonalcoholic fatty liver (simple steatosis) represents the more commonly prevalent and benign subset of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, nonalcoholic fatty liver can progress to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and advanced fibrosis. Development of NAFLD-related advanced fibrosis portends a poor prognosis because of a higher risk of end-stage liver disease and hepatocellular carcinoma. Longitudinal studies in patients with NAFLD have established the stage of fibrosis, not the presence of NASH, as an independent predictor of both the risk of overall and cause-specific mortality in this disease state.

Abdominal Pain in Children Develops With Age and Increases With Psychosocial Factors
Functional gastrointestinal disorders are highly prevalent, cause significant suffering, and are costly to society. Pain is a central feature of 2 of the most common functional gastrointestinal disorders —irritable bowel syndrome and functional dyspepsia. Although these disorders have been well studied in adults, their etiology is poorly understood. We sought to identify early-life factors associated with development of abdominal pain in children (2–12 years old). (Source: Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology)

Spatial Patterns From High-Resolution Electrogastrography Correlate With Severity of Symptoms in Patients With Functional Dyspepsia and Gastroparesis
Invasive gastric electrical mapping has revealed spatial abnormalities of the slow wave in subjects with gastroparesis and functional gastrointestinal disorders. Cutaneous high-resolution electrogastrography (HR-EGG) is a non-invasive method that can detect spatial features of the gastric slow wave. We performed HR-EGG in subjects with active foregut symptoms to evaluate associations between gastric myoelectric abnormalities, symptoms (based on a validated questionnaire), and gastric emptying.

Should We Divide Crohn ’s Disease Into Ileum-dominant and Isolated Colonic Diseases?
Crohn's disease (CD) is an inflammatory bowel disease, which can involve any region of the gastrointestinal tract. First described in 1932 as terminal ileitis or regional enteritis, it predominately involves the ileum with or without colonic involvement. Isolated colonic CD was first described in 1960 and since then the phenotypic classification of CD has evolved to stratify patients into isolated ileal, ileocolonic, or isolated colonic involvement. In the current review we evaluate the published literature regarding differences in epidemiology, natural history, pathogenesis, response to therapy, and disease monitoring, wh...

They concluded that metabolic disease (obesity or fatty disease) may play a role in liver tumorigenesis in patients with HBsAg seroclearance. (Source: Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology)

Simple Clinical Tools to Predict Decompensation in Patients With Compensated Cirrhosis: An Unmet Need
The natural history of cirrhosis is characterized by a long, asymptomatic stage (compensated cirrhosis), and by a much shorter stage (decompensated cirrhosis) that is defined by the presence of 1 or more complications of portal hypertension, namely ascites, portal hypertensive bleeding, and/or encephalopathy. The main determinant of survival in cirrhosis is the development of decompensation, with liver-related mortality occurring almost exclusively after the development of decompensation.1 (Source: Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology)

Thank you for your letter. We agree that the purpose of the fecal immunochemical test (FIT) is to detect polyps and early colorectal cancer (CRC) for the benefit of reducing the burden of CRC. We regret that the intention of our statement that primary care providers “should refrain from ordering FITs for patients who are not agreeable to colonoscopy if FIT is positive” was interpreted negatively.1 Yes, “The secret in the care of the patient, is in caring for the patient,” which is why we engage in this critical research to improve Veterans’ outcomes.
