OBJECTIVE: To explore a possible significance of the presence of anti-ganglioside and anti-sulfatide antibodies in sera of adult patients with celiac disease (CD) in different clinical scenario. METHODS: We selected 22 adult patients with newly diagnosed CD and 20 age-sex matched non-CD controls. Patients' serum was tested - before and after at least 6 months on a gluten-free diet (GFD) - for anti-GM1, GM2, GM3, GD1a, GD1b, GD3, GT1a, GT1b, GQ1b and sulfatide IgM, IgG and IgA auto-antibodies, by means of a dot blot technique and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)...

BACKGROUND: Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is a leading cause of death in patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). Biliary polysomy detected by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) helps to identify patients with early CCA, but not all PSC patients with polysomy develop CCA. Here, we examined the features and clinical outcomes of PSC patients with serial versus isolated polysomy. METHODS: All patients with PSC who underwent ≥1 endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC) with FISH testing at Mayo Clinic, Rochester from 2008-2011 were identified...

OBJECTIVE: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are rare cancer forms, which are often disseminated at diagnosis. In cancer patients, pain is a feared symptom and reported in 30% of patients during treatment and in 70-90% with advanced disease. However, the extent and the severity of pain in patients with NET have never been investigated. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional survey of 207 NET patients in the period March 2014 to March 2015 at our tertiary NET Center...

OBJECTIVE: Hepatic (biliary) cystic tumor (HBCT) is a rare focal cystic liver lesion, which has been rarely described in the literature. In our current multicenter, retrospective study, we aimed to analyze contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) features and its diagnostic performance in histologically proved HBCT. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twenty-three patients with single HBCT were retrospectively analyzed. Histologically, 17 (73.9%) were benign hepatic (biliary) cystadenoma (HBCA), 6 (26...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the prevalence of serological markers in newly diagnosed treatment-naïve pediatric inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), their utility in differentiating Crohn's disease (CD), ulcerative colitis (UC) and symptomatic non-IBD patients and whether serological markers are associated with early TNF blocker treatment. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Ninety-six children and adolescents <18 years, 58 with IBD and 38 symptomatic non-IBD controls were included...

OBJECTIVE: With several faecal calprotectin (FC) assays on the market, it has been difficult to define a uniform threshold for discriminating between remission and active disease in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We aimed to compare the results of different FC-assays in IBD patients, followed over time. MATERIAL AND METHODS: IBD patients provided faecal samples and reported clinical activity every third month prospectively over a two year period...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The incidence of gallstones and gallbladder sludge is higher in patients after total gastrectomy than in general population. Formation of gallstones after gastrectomy is multifactorial. Here, we investigate the changes in gallbladder and biliary tract functions by cholescintygraphy and monitored changes in cholecystokinin (CCK) release in long-term survivors after total gastrectomy for gastric carcinoma. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients had undergone total gastrectomy for gastric carcinoma at least five years ago...

BACKGROUND: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), composed of Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), is an inflammatory autoimmune disease. CD99 has been reported to participate in migration of leukocytes and T cell activation. However, the roles of CD99 in IBD are obscure. MATERIALS AND METHODS: CD99 expression was examined in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and inflamed mucosa from IBD patients by qRT-PCR. Serum TNF-α and IL-17A levels were detected by ELISA...

OBJECTIVE: A defunctioning stoma is a therapeutic option for colonic or perianal Crohn's disease. In the pre-biologic era the response rate to defunctioning in our unit was high (86%), but intestinal continuity was only restored in 11-20%. Few data exist on the outcome of defunctioning since the widespread introduction of biologicals. MATERIAL AND METHODS: All patients undergoing a defunctioning stoma for colonic/perianal Crohn's disease since 2003-2011 were identified from a prospective database...

OBJECTIVE: Fatigue is a major concern for patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD), but evidence from population-based studies regarding fatigue in long-standing inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients is scarce. Our aims were to assess fatigue scores and the prevalence of chronic fatigue in IBD patients 20 years after diagnosis and to identify variables associated with fatigue in this cohort. METHODS: Twenty years after diagnosis, patients from a cohort with incident IBD were invited to a follow-up visit that included a structured interview, a clinical examination, laboratory tests and the Fatigue Questionnaire (FQ)...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Patients with dysplasia in Barrett's esophagus (BE) have a considerable risk of developing esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC). The mucosal expression of the pro-inflammatory angiotensin II receptor type 1 (AT1R) is elevated in these patients, suggesting a role in carcinogenesis. The purpose of this study was to determine whether interference with the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) would influence downstream markers of carcinogenesis. METHODS: Endoscopic mucosal biopsies from BE patients with low-grade dysplasia (LGD) were sampled before and after a three-week period of RAS-interfering treatment...

OBJECTIVE: In autoimmune hepatitis, data on the prognostic value of baseline liver biopsy and the sequential histology is controversial. Our aim was to evaluate the prognostic value of clinical variables and biopsy at the time of diagnosis and during the disease course. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All 98 patients in our hospital during 1995-2012 were included. Sequential biopsies were available in 66 patients. Analyses based on clinical and histological variables were performed to find parameters predicting the progression of fibrosis, and development of cirrhosis...

OBJECTIVE: The ten-eleven translocation (TET) proteins, as methylcytosine dioxygenases, catalyze 5-methylcytosine (5mC) into 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC). The altered expression of TET1 disrupts the balance between DNA methylation and demethylation. This alteration has been reported to be associated with carcinogenesis in various malignancies. The aim of the present study was to investigate changes in expression and the role of TET1 in colorectal cancer (CRC). MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 109 CRC patients who underwent radical surgical colon resection were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Capsule endoscopy (CE) is often used to investigate small bowel Crohn's disease (CD). AIM: The aim of this study is to prospectively assess the value of fecal calprotectin and lactoferrin to predict CE findings. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Sixty-eight consecutive patients that were referred for CE were included. Stool samples for calprotectin and lactoferrin and blood samples were collected for relevant parameters. Correlation between fecal markers and CE findings was assessed and receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves were built to determine the predictive values of fecal markers for the diagnosis of CD...

BACKGROUND: Recently, diagnosis of obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB) has improved greatly due to introduction of capsule endoscopy (CE) and double balloon enteroscopy (DBE). However, the efficacy of CE over DBE in patients with previous OGIB remains unclear. This study aimed to compare, in terms of diagnostic yield, the efficacy of DBE with that of CE in patients with previous OGIB. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We enrolled 223 consecutive patients with previous OGIB who were treated between May 2007 and March 2012...

OBJECTIVES: To compare cumulative ionizing radiation in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) for the years 2001-2011. To study how radiation exposure change over time in patients with newly diagnosed IBD and factors associated with radiation exposure. MATERIAL AND METHODS: All radiological investigations performed between 1 January 2001 and 31 December 2011 were retrospectively recorded in patients with Crohn's disease (CD) (n = 103), ulcerative colitis (UC) (n = 304) and IBS (n = 149)...
