Background/Aim: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic gastrointestinal disorder which includes ulcerative colitis (UC), Crohn's disease (CD), and indeterminate colitis (IC). The natural history of pediatric IBDs is poorly understood and generally unpredictable. We aim to study the natural history of IBD in Saudi children including the extraintestinal manifestations, changes in diagnosis, disease behavior, medical management, and surgical outcome. Patients and Methods: A retrospective review of all the charts of children less than 14 years of age who were diagnosed as IBD and followed up in King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center (KFSH and RC) from January 2001 to December 2011 was performed...

The phase angle (PhA) seems to be a reliable screening tool for the identification of malnutrition risk in hospitalized children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The aim of the present study was to assess the body composition and nutritional status of hospitalized children and adolescents with IBD by using bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) with phase angle (PhA) calculation, which has not been evaluated in hospitalized children with IBD yet. A total of 59 children and adolescents aged 4–18 years, with IBD: 34 ulcerative colitis (UC) and 25 Crohn’s disease (CD) were included in the study...

Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) are incurable lifelong inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) with a rising worldwide incidence. IBD is characterized by diarrhea, rectal bleeding, severe cramping and weight loss. However, there is a growing evidence that IBD is also associated with anxiety- and depression-related disorders, which further increase the societal burden of these diseases. Given the limited knowledge of central nervous system (CNS) changes in IBD, we investigated CNS-related comorbidities in a mouse model of experimental colitis induced by dextran sulfate sodium (DSS) administration in drinking water for 5 days...

Background: Anemia is a frequent complication of Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), collectively known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Intravenous (IV) iron is recommended as the initial therapy for patients with clinically active IBD, severe anemia, and intolerance to oral iron. IV iron is associated with serious adverse effects including a black box warning for anaphylaxis with iron dextran and ferumoxytol. We aimed to examine the occurrence of adverse reactions including anaphylaxis after IV iron infusions in a large database of US IBD patients...

Background: Anti-tumor necrosis factor alpha (anti-TNFα) therapy has become the mainstay of therapy for Crohn's disease (CD). However, post-therapy, the recurrence rate is still high. The aim of this study was to dissect the molecular mechanism for recurrence of CD treated with anti-TNFα therapy and investigate novel therapeutic options that could induce complete remission. Methods: We re-analyzed publicly available mucosal gene expression data from CD patients pre- and post-infliximab therapy to extract the transcriptional differences between responders and healthy controls...

Background: Patients with active ulcerative colitis (UC) failing conventional therapies are in need of rescue strategies. Due to the fact that accepted step-up therapy with biologicals is expensive and sometimes unavailable, alternative therapies are warranted. Methotrexate (MTX) and thioguanine (TG) have both been suggested as alternative maintenance strategies in conventional thiopurine failing UC patients. In this multicenter database study, we compared safety and effectiveness (drug-survival) of MTX and TG in UC patients...

Background: Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy is a serious condition linked to certain diseases and immunosuppressant therapies, including the α4 integrin antagonist natalizumab. No cases have been reported to date with vedolizumab, a selective antagonist of the α4β7 integrin expressed on gut-homing lymphocytes. This analysis aimed to describe the current and future expected occurrence of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy with vedolizumab use, were the risk the same as in other populations in which this disease has been studied...

Background: In Crohn's disease (CD), the pathogenic immune response is associated with high Smad7, an inhibitor of TGF-β1 signaling. Smad7 knockdown with Mongersen, a specific antisense oligonucleotide-containing compound, restores TGF-β1 activity leading to inhibition of inflammatory signals and associates with clinical benefit in CD patients. As TGF-β1 is pro-fibrogenic, it remains unclear whether Mongersen-induced Smad7 inhibition increases the risk of intestinal fibrosis. We assessed the impact of Smad7 inhibition on the course of colitis-driven intestinal fibrosis in mice...

Long-standing ulcerative colitis (UC) and extensive Crohn's colitis confer increased risk for development of colorectal cancer. Screening and surveillance colonoscopy programs aim to identify, resect, or detect dysplasia or colorectal cancer. Dysplastic lesions can be removed by endoscopic resection and patients with unresectable lesions can be referred for colectomy at an earlier stage, with the goal of reducing overall morbidity and mortality from colorectal cancer. Surveillance colonoscopy for patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is endorsed by multiple specialty societies...

Background: Anti-tumor necrosis factor α (anti-TNF-α) is important in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, but some patients experience only a partial response. In these patients, a combination of anti-TNF-α and vedolizumab (VDZ) may act as a bridge until the full VDZ effect occurs. At present, clinical data on combination treatment with anti-TNF-α and VDZ are not available. The aim of this case series was to evaluate the safety and clinical response of combination therapy with anti-TNF-α and VDZ in clinical practice...

Tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) is an important fundamental cytokine during the immune response against cancer and infections such as tuberculosis. This molecule also plays a key pathogenic role in complex and difficult-to-treat diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, Crohn's disease, psoriasis and ulcerative colitis. The treatment of these diseases frequently needs TNF-α antagonists, which has been related to an increased risk of developing tuberculosis, mycoses, and other severe infections...

Behçet's disease (BD) is a systemic inflammatory disorder involving the oral and genital mucosa, skin, eyes, gastrointestinal tract, joints, vasculature, and nervous. The gastrointestinal lesions accompanying with BD can extend along the full length of the tract, from the mouth to the anus, and show various clinical characteristics which is difficult to be differentiate from the other inflammatory bowel diseases including ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. Hence, the differential diagnosis is difficult and can affect treatment outcomes...
