Up to 5% of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients are thought to have clinically significant liver disease due to multifactorial causes, however, this figure may be an underestimate due to reliance on abnormal liver tests (LTs) and/or liver biopsies.
Our aim was to evaluate the prevalence of clinically significant liver disease in IBD patients as defined by an increased li...

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a group of conditions that affect the gastrointestinal system. IBD consists of autoimmune diseases that attack the GI mucosa, resulting in inflammation of the gut wall. For this discussion, we will be focusing on ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn’s disease (CD). The main differences between the two are that ulcerative colitis mainly involves the large intesti...
Introduction Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is not a specific diagnosis, rather it is a histological description of a syndrome resulting from a host hypersensitivity response to antigenic stimuli. In IBD there is an increase in the inflammatory cell population in the intestinal mucosa. The predominant inflammatory component can be lymphocytic-plasmacytic (most common type), eosinophilic, neut...
Background: This paper summarizes our experiences from a six-month pilot study of a web portal that provided secure communications, education, and support for self-management by Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) patients. An analysis of “don't know” responses revealed room for improvement in site organization and content analysis. Objectives: To address a gap in knowledge, information, access, a...

Identity by descent (IBD) inference is the task of computationally detecting genomic segments that are shared between individuals by means of common familial descent. Accurate IBD detection plays an important role in various genomic studies, ranging from mapping disease genes to exploring ancient population histories. The majority of recent work in the field has focused on improving the accurac...

Much of the flat or biopsy-only detected dysplasia in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that had historically warranted a colectomy can now be shown to be circumscribed lesions with dye-spray or advanced endoscopic imaging. These lesions are therefore amenable to endoscopic excision with close endoscopic follow-up, though are technically very challenging. This review discusses preresection asses...
BACKGROUND AND AIMS
Fatigue is one of the top complaints of people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD); however this is often not addressed in clinical consultations. This study aimed to gain an understanding of healthcare practitioners' (HCPs) perception of IBD fatigue as experienced by people with IBD.
Descriptive phenomenology was conducted with 20 HCPs who work with people with ...
The incidence of TE events in IBD patients is higher then in population control. The main reason of it, is the hypercoaugulable state. Our aim was to detect serum markers related to TE, that can assume preventing and prognostic meanings.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
We performed a 3 years study on 71 patients with IBD, evaluating hypercoaugulability, and then we compared the results with ...
