Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is an established risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD). However, whether cardiac consequences present early in IBD is unknown. This is the first study in children aiming to unmask altered myocardial mechanics in IBD. We enrolled 50 consecutive normotensive children with Crohn's disease (CD) (n = 28) or ulcerative colitis (UC) (n = 22). The study groups consisted of 18 patients with active inflammatory disease (mean age 14.6 ± 2.5 years) and 32 children with IBD in remission (14...

Background & Aims: Exclusive enteral nutrition (EEN) is recommended as first-line induction therapy for pediatric Crohn's disease (CD) although corticosteroids (CS) are still used commonly. Our aim was to compare short- and long-term disease outcomes of pediatric CD patients initially managed with either EEN or CS. Methods: Medical records of newly-diagnosed pediatric CD patients treated with EEN or CS as induction therapy were retrospectively reviewed. To minimize selection bias inherent in observational cohort studies, propensity analysis was carried out...

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the gastrointestinal tract caused by a dysregulated immune response to the fecal microbiota. Very early-onset inflammatory bowel disease (VEO-IBD) refers to a subgroup of pediatric patients with IBD diagnosed before 6 years of age. This subgroup is often characterized by increased severity, aggressive progression, strong family history of IBD, and often poor response to conventional treatments. Nutritional therapies have been utilized to treat IBD, but their role in VEO-IBD is unclear...

REVIEW
Giovanni C Actis, Rinaldo Pellicano
The inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are chronic incurable inflammatory disorders of the gut. Some 10% run a downhill course, requiring emergency medical support and often surgery; another small subset are monogenic, and, threatening pediatric patients, are the challenge of these days. The majority of the IBDs, however, are polygenic low-penetrance diseases, running a lifetime waxing-and-waning course. The prevalent trend is towards a slow worsening and steady cost increase. Each and all drugs of the available arsenal exhibit strengths and weaknesses: Mesalamines are chiefly effectively for mild-moderate colitis, and do not work in Crohn's; steroids do not control some 40% of the ulcerative colitis cases, and are not indicated for Crohn's; thiopurines are effective in the maintenance of the IBDs but do not prevent relapses on withdrawal; biologics are still being used empirically (not monitored) causing further increase of their cost over that of hospitalization...

Although the exact pathophysiology remains unknown, the development of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is influenced by the interplay between genetics, the immune system, and environmental factors such as diet. The commonly used food additives, carrageenan and carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), are used to develop intestinal inflammation in animal models. These food additives are excluded from current dietary approaches to induce disease remission in Crohn's disease such as exclusive enteral nutrition (EEN) using a polymeric formula...

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn disease, ulcerative colitis, and IBD-unspecified, is a chronic immune-mediated condition of the gastrointestinal tract in which the goal of treatment is to induce and maintain durable remission. In pediatrics, there is a wide spectrum of presenting symptoms, but esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy are imperative to confirming the diagnosis. Treatment goals include achieving mucosal healing of the gastrointestinal tract, reaching growth potential, limiting medication toxicities, and optimizing quality of life for all patients...

Crohn's disease (CD) is a chronic inflammatory disorder with an unknown etiology that commonly involves the gastrointestinal tract, and bronchopulmonary manifestations only occur in 0.4% of cases. There have not been any reports about pulmonary involvement in pediatric CD patients. We experienced a 14-year-old boy with Crohn's disease diagnosed with organizing pneumonia by chest CT-guided biopsy examination. His pneumonia was intractable despite the administration of multiple antibiotics, and steroid therapy was very effective...

Low vitamin D has been implicated in reduced bone mineral density (BMD) in children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Our study aimed to evaluate differences in serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D) and total body less head (TBLH) BMD z-scores in children with Crohn's disease (CD), ulcerative colitis (UC), and those with abdominal pain-related functional gastrointestinal disorder (AP-FGID) as the control group. We also examined the correlation between serum 25(OH)D and TBLH BMD z-score, and factors that affect each of these parameters...

OBJECTIVES: The pharmacokinetics of infliximab are highly variable in children with Crohn's disease (CD), and a one-size-fits-all approach to dosing is inadequate. Model-based drug dosing can help individualize dosing strategies. We evaluated the predictive performance and clinical utility of a published population pharmacokinetic model of infliximab in children with CD. METHODS: Within a cohort of 34 children with CD who had infliximab trough concentrations measured, the pharmacokinetics of each patient was estimated in NONMEM® using a published population pharmacokinetic model...

Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, known together as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), and celiac disease are the most common disorders affecting not only adults but also children. Both IBDs and celiac disease are associated with oxidative stress, which may play a significant role in their etiologies. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) such as superoxide radicals (O2•(-)), hydroxyl radicals (•OH), hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), and singlet oxygen ((1)O2) are responsible for cell death via oxidation of DNA, proteins, lipids, and almost any other cellular constituent...
