Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) can have a significant impact on psychological wellbeing and quality of life. How one responds to and copes with IBD may be an important determinant of psychological wellbeing. We aimed to systematically review all published literature regarding coping strategies of IBD patients.
Ovid and Pubmed databases were searched over 6 months. All arti...
The American Gastroenterology Association (AGA) Bridges to Excellence (BTE) Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Care Recognition program encourages clinicians to develop a superior quality of care in the treatment of IBD. We evaluated adherence to BTE measures in the care of IBD patients among IBD and non-IBD gastrointestinal physicians at a tertiary care hospital.

Due to misunderstandings about their effectiveness and feasibility, topical (or rectal) therapies with aminosalicylates (5-aminosalicylic acid, 5-ASA) and steroids are often underused in patients with ulcerative colitis (UC). However, many of these patients could be treated solely with rectal/topical therapies, or could benefit from them in combination with oral therapies. We review the evidenc...
SN The incidence and prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are lower in Asia than in the West. However, time trend studies from Asia (Japan, Korea, and Hong Kong) have shown that the incidence of IBD has increased over the past 2 decades. Differences have also been observed in the incidence of IBD across different geographic regions within Asia. In Asia, ulcerative colitis (UC) is more...

Strongyloides has been shown to infrequently mimic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or to disseminate when a patient with IBD and unrecognized strongyloides is treated with immunosupression.
A man from Ecuador, living in Spain for years, with a history of type 2 diabetes mellitus and psoriasis treated with topical corticosteroids, was admitted to the hospital with an ...

Ocular manifestations occur in 4-12% of patients with IBD. Uveitis and iritis are more frequently associated with ulcerative colitis while episcleritis is more common in Crohn's disease. Some ocular manifestations in IBD can be secondary to treatment and/or effects of the intestinal disease itself. The specific management of ocular manifestations in IBD requires the use of topical steroids and ...

Patients with long-standing ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease have an increased risk of developing colorectal cancer and patients with small intestinal Crohn’s disease are at increased risk of small bowel adenocarcinoma. Colorectal cancer appearing on the ground of inflammatory bowel disease is the result of a process which is believed to begin from no dysplasia progressing to indefinite d...
C rohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis result from an inappropriate response of the mucosal immune system to the normal enteric flora in a genetically susceptible individual. The importance of genetic predisposition was firmly established in 2001 by the identification of the first CD susceptibility gene NOD2 (CARD15) on chromosome 16q12 (IBD1). 2 It is now clear that NOD2 variants contrib...

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs, 18-23 nucleotides long, which act as post-transcriptional regulators of gene expression. miRNAs are strongly implicated in the pathogenesis of many common diseases, including IBDs. This review aims to outline the history, biogenesis and regulation of miRNAs. The role of miRNAs in the development and regulation of the innate and adaptive immune syste...
