Network Meta-Analysis Of Ulcerative Colitis Pharmacotherapies: Carryover Effects From Induction And Bias Of The Results, Dominik Naessens, Chris Cameron, David C. Hoaglin 2020 Janssen Pharmaceutica NV

Network Meta-Analysis Of Ulcerative Colitis Pharmacotherapies: Carryover Effects From Induction And Bias Of The Results, Dominik Naessens, Chris Cameron, David C. Hoaglin

Open Access Publications by UMMS Authors

Dear Editor, In their network meta-analyses (NMAs) of treatments for ulcerative colitis (UC), Singh et al1 did not take into account a complication associated with studies that re-randomized patients for the maintenance phase: differential carryover effects from induction can bias the results. In those studies, patients who responded to induction were re-randomized to maintenance treatments that included placebo. If, however, carryover effects from induction differ substantially among active treatments, the effects of those treatments, relative to placebo, are not comparable.

Histopathology Of Celiac Disease. Position Statements Of The Italian Group Of Gastrointestinal Pathologists (Gipad-Siapec), Carolina Ciacci

Translational Medicine @ UniSa

Celiac Disease (CeD) is an immunemediated inflammatory disorder of the small intestine, affecting genetically susceptible individuals when exposed to gluten. Small intestinal biopsy interpretation has been the "gold standard" for celiac disease (CeD) for over 50 years. Despite today's availability of sensitive and specific serological tests, the histopathological features from mucosal biopsy play a key role in diagnosing when CeD is suspected. Such a diagnostic approach requires a multidisciplinary team to optimize both tissue sampling and interpretation via the interaction between the pathologist and the gastroenterologist. Pathologists of the Italian Group of Gastrointestinal Pathology (GIPAD-SIAPEC), together with a member ...

Background: Psychological comorbidities are common among people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and are associated with worse disease outcomes. Evidence-based psychotherapy is an effective means to increase psychosocial support. This study aimed to identify the barriers to attending psychotherapy.

Methods: This electronic survey study included a demographic, quality of life, and barriers to psychotherapy questionnaire. Quality of life was assessed using the Short Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (SIBDQ). Barriers were assessed using the Perceived Barriers to Psychological Treatments scale (PBPT). Linear regression was used to identify participant characteristics associated with higher PBPT scores.

Results: One hundred eighty-seven participants completed the ...

Laryngeal Histoplasmosis In Patients With Crohn’S Disease Undergoing Treatment With Humira (Adalimumab): A Case Series, Jenna Berg, Jonathan Blecha, Chris Bingcang, Justin Oltman, Jayme Dowdall, Subodh M. Lele

Graduate Medical Education Research Journal

The FDA has advocated for increasing awareness of histoplasmosis for patients undergoing TNF blockers as delay in diagnosis can lead to a poor outcome.1 Laryngeal histoplasmosis is a rare entity that should be part of the differential diagnosis in patients receiving immune suppression for Crohn’s disease. Patients with laryngeal histoplasmosis often report hoarseness, mucosal ulcerations, dysphagia, and odynophagia. We present a series of two cases of laryngeal histoplasmosis in patients with Crohn’s. These cases illustrate the high index of suspicion required to make the diagnosis of laryngeal histoplasmosis, especially in the Midwestern United States. Diagnosis is made ...

Recent advancements in medical genetics and molecular biology are reflected in the modern understanding and approach to colorectal carcinoma (CRC). Understanding the cellular mechanisms and mutational patterns that promote carcinogenesis could enhance the predictive accuracy of the TNM classification. Furthermore, this will allow for a much more documented stratification and tailored oncological treatment. This paper presents an illustrative case of a relatively young patient (50 years old) with no family history of cancer who was diagnosed with four synchronous gastrointestinal (GI) adenocarcinomas displaying a wild type P53, negative BRAF testing, and mutated MLH1 and PMS2 proteins. This case report contributes ...

Intestinal Microbiota – A Possible Contributor To Cardiovascular Diseases?, Roua Iorga, Ovidiu Gabriel Bratu, Nicolae Bacalbasa, Mihnea-Alexandru Gaman, Camelia Cristina Diaconu

Journal of Mind and Medical Sciences

The intestinal microbiota represents an interesting and emergent field of research, with already known implications in metabolic and immunological functions. Recently, there is increasing evidence that specific gut microbial populations are associated with cardiovascular diseases. Numerous completed and ongoing studies aim to evaluate the potential of intestinal microbiota assessment to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and therapeutic arsenal of cardiovascular diseases, considering dysbiosis as a cardiovascular risk factor. There is strong evidence for a correlation between intestinal flora imbalance and metabolic changes secondary to bacterial metabolites. In this minireview, we discuss recent data about the connections between intestinal microbiota and cardiovascular ...

Journal of Mind and Medical Sciences

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a pathogenic entity which determines inflammation and liver damage through complex immune mechanisms. Although progress has been made in managing the disease course, chronic infection still remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality to this day. Because both acute and chronic infection are often asymptomatic, chronic infection is frequently diagnosed when its complications have developed. In a small proportion of cases, the chronic infection does not develop, the immune system managing to cleanse the body from this silent pathogen in the absence of specific treatment, a process called spontaneous viral clearance, which occurs rarely ...

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology Faculty Papers

Background and Aims: With the availability of direct-acting antiviral (DAA) therapy for hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and changing liver disease etiology for liver transplantation (LT), data on the changes in LT recipient population in the DAA era are scanty. Methods: The United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) registry (01/2007 to 06/2018) was used to develop a retrospective cohort of LT recipients for HCV, alco-hol-associated liver disease (ALD), and non-alcoholic steato-hepatitis (NASH). LT recipients in the DAA era (2013-2018) were compared with those in the pre-DAA era (2007-2012) era for recipient characteristics. Chi-square and analysis of variance were ...

Advanced fibrosis and portal hypertension influence short-term mortality. Lipocalin 2 (LCN2) regulates infection response and increases in liver injury. We explored the role of intrahepatic LCN2 in human alcoholic hepatitis (AH) with advanced fibrosis and portal hypertension and in experimental mouse fibrosis. We found hepatic LCN2 expression and serum LCN2 level markedly increased and correlated with disease severity and portal hypertension in patients with AH. In control human livers, LCN2 expressed exclusively in mononuclear cells, while its expression was markedly induced in AH livers, not only in mononuclear cells but also notably in hepatocytes. Lcn2−/− mice were protected from liver ...

Currently, there are inconsistencies in the recommendations of when to obtain an esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) in children with feeding difficulties. The aim of our study was to identify EGD findings in patients presenting to a large, outpatient feeding program. Additionally, we investigated the presence of any relationship between abnormal pathology seen on biopsies (inflammation) and symptoms of feeding intolerance such as vomiting, gagging, retching, or abdominal pain. Retrospective analysis of electronic medical records (EMRs) was conducted for all new patients aged 0-17 years presenting to the Multidisciplinary Feeding Clinic. Three hundred and thirty patients (50.2%) had an EGD with complete ...

HCA Healthcare Journal of Medicine

Background: Acute pancreatitis (AP) is one of the most common causes of hospital admissions due to gastrointestinal disorders. No pharmacologic agents have been proven to impact the prognosis, and the treatment still remains supportive with intravenous fluids for hydration. Although early hydration has been recommended for the management of mild AP, there is no consensus on the type, rate, and amount of the fluid replacement.

Objective: In this study, we aimed to investigate the outcome of aggressive hydration in patients with AP.

Methods: Retrospective data from patients admitted to 12 hospitals (2015–2017) was used for analysis. Five hundred patients ...
