Risk factors for peristomal pyoderma gangrenosum complicating inflammatory bowel disease

submitted by samonothco 1 year and 10 months ago
Risk factors for peristomal pyoderma gangrenosum (PPG) are not well defined. The aim of this study was to evaluate risk factors associated with development of PPG. Both PPG patients and controls were obtained by searching a database of the Cleveland Clinic using the ICD-9 code from March 2005 to May 201The control group was selected by matching for underlying diseases and type of stoma in a ratio of 3:Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed. A total of 15 PPG cases and 45 controls were included. The mean age at the time of PPG diagnosis was 46.0±14.4years. The underlying disease was Crohn's disease in 7 patients (46.7%), ulcerative colitis in 7 (46.7%) and indeterminate colitis in 1 (6.7%). Eleven patients (73.3%) had end ileostomy, 3 (20.0%) had loop ileostomy and 1 (6.7%) had colostomy. Eleven patients (73.3%) had active intestinal disease. In multivariate analysis, female gender, the presence of concurrent autoimmune disorders, and a high body mass index (BMI) were significantly associated with the presence of PPG, with odds ratios of 8.385 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.496–46.982, p=0.015), 6.882 (95% CI:1.438–32.941, p=0.016), and 9.895 (95% CI: 1.970–43.704, p=0.005), respectively. After a median follow-up of 12.8 (interquartile range: 7.9–20.1) months with appropriate therapy, PPG healed in 8 patients (53.3%) and improved in 7 (46.7%) patients, after treatment. Female gender, the presence of autoimmune disorders and a high BMI appeared to be associated with an increased risk for the development of PPG in IBD patients.

TRAF3IP2 gene is associated with cutaneous extraintestinal manifestations in Inflammatory Bowel Disease
submitted by paddeng 1 year and 6 months ago - Topic: Health
Genome-wide association (GWA) studies recently identified a novel gene, TRAF3IP2, involved in the susceptibility to psoriasis. Common immune-mediated mechanisms involving the skin or the gut have been suggested. We therefore aimed to assess the role of TRAF3IP2 gene in IBD, with particular regard to the development of cutaneous extraintestinal manifestations (pyoderma gangrenosum, erythema nodo...

What Can We Learn From Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Developing Countries?
submitted by kintw3511 1 year and 5 months ago - Topic: Health
Inflammatory bowel diseases occur due to an aberrant immune response to luminal antigens in genetically predisposed individuals. Although specific genetic loci have been identified underlying the predisposition, they have not fully explained the disease etiology. Striking epidemiological observations implicate the critical role of environmental influences on disease penetrance. The emergence of...

MDR1 polymorphisms are associated with inflammatory bowel disease in a cohort of Croatian IBD patients
submitted by sflonniry2 1 year and 4 months ago - Topic: Health
Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are chronic diseases of unknown etiology and pathogenesis in which genetic factors contribute to development of disease. MDR1/ABCB1 is an interesting candidate gene for IBD. The role of two single nucleotide polymorphisms, C3435T and G2677T remains unclear due to contradictory results of current studies. Thus, the aims of this research were to investigate the a...

Inflammatory Bowel Disease Has a Small Effect on Bone Mineral Density and Risk for Osteoporosis
submitted by yossen 1 year and 9 months ago - Topic: Health
A high prevalence of osteoporosis has been reported among individuals with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We performed a population-based analysis to determine whether IBD is itself a risk factor for low bone-mineral density (BMD) or whether low BMD results from other factors associated with IBD. We identified 1230 subjects with IBD in the Manitoba BMD Database, which contains results of BMD...

Survey of inflammatory bowel diseases in India

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), both ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn’s disease (CD), once thought to be uncommon, is now seen commonly in India. The Indian Society of Gastroenterology (ISG) Task Force on IBD decided to collate data on the clinical spectrum of IBD currently prevailing in India. An open call to members of ISG was given through publication of a proforma questionnaire in the ...

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) encompasses 2 independent but related entities: ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease. Crohn's disease is characterised by transmural patchy inflammation which can involve any portion of the gastrointestinal tract. UC is characterised by superficial inflammation that begins in the rectum and extends proximally along the colon. In Europe, approximately 2.2 ...

Our previous single-center study showed that patients with underlying inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) had a higher risk for post-cholecystectomy complications. The aim of the current population-based study was to verify whether concomitant IBD was indeed associated with an increased risk of post-cholecystectomy complications. In this cross-sectional study, all 1,155,432 patients from the Natio...

Methodological Problems in RCTs on IBD

Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are the gold standard method for developing evidence-based medicine in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Methodological problems in RCTs in IBD concern different aspects such as the definition of the study population due to the extreme variability of patients with IBD, the indices of disease activity, a clearly defined outcome, the environmental risk factors ...

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has unclear pathogenesis and it is related to the increasing risk of developing colorectal cancer (CRC). Recent studies have uncovered the molecular mechanism of intracellular signaling pathways of inflammatory cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interferon (IFN)-γ and interleukin (IL)-6. The major transcription factors including STAT3 have been s...
