Improving Anemia in Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Impact of the Anemia Care Pathway.

Improving Anemia in Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Impact of the Anemia Care Pathway. Dig Dis Sci. 2019 Mar 16;: Authors: Qureshi T, Peter Nguyen T, Wang R, Willis D, Shah R, Hou JK Abstract BACKGROUND: Anemia is a common complication of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Despite existing guidelines for anemia in IBD, it is frequently under-treated and the prevalence of anemia has remained high. To address this gap, the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation developed the Anemia Care Pathway (ACP). AIMS: To implement the ACP in a managed care setting and identify…

Dig Dis Sci. 2019 Feb 28;: Authors: Koslowsky B, Sadeh C, Grisaru-Granovsky S, Miskin H, Goldin E, Bar-Gil Shitrit A Abstract INTRODUCTION: Thiopurine exposure throughout pregnancy in patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) is common and teratogenically safe. Late consequences of in utero exposure to thiopurines and its metabolite, 6-thioguanine nucleotides (6-TGN), such as neonatal and infant anemia are still disputed. AIM: To evaluate whether 6-TGN exposure during pregnancy influences anemia in…

Improved Hemoglobin Response with Ferric Carboxymaltose in Patients with Gastrointestinal-Related Iron-Deficiency Anemia Versus Oral Iron.

Improved Hemoglobin Response with Ferric Carboxymaltose in Patients with Gastrointestinal-Related Iron-Deficiency Anemia Versus Oral Iron. Dig Dis Sci. 2018 Jul 28;: Authors: Lichtenstein GR, Onken JE Abstract AIMS: To compare the efficacy and safety of intravenous (IV) ferric carboxymaltose (FCM) versus oral iron and other IV iron therapies in patients with iron-deficiency anemia (IDA) resulting from gastrointestinal (GI) disorders. METHODS: A pooled analysis of four prospective, randomized, active-controlled trials in patients with IDA was performed. Efficacy measures included change from baseline in hemoglobin (Hb), ferritin, and transferrin saturation (TSAT) and…

A Novel Model for Predicting Incident Moderate to Severe Anemia and Iron Deficiency in Patients with Newly Diagnosed Ulcerative Colitis.

A Novel Model for Predicting Incident Moderate to Severe Anemia and Iron Deficiency in Patients with Newly Diagnosed Ulcerative Colitis. Dig Dis Sci. 2017 Mar 11;: Authors: Khan N, Patel D, Shah Y, Yang YX Abstract BACKGROUND: Anemia and iron deficiency are common complications of ulcerative colitis (UC). We aimed to develop and internally validate a prediction model for the incidence of moderate to severe anemia and iron deficiency anemia (IDA) in newly diagnosed patients with UC. METHODS: Multivariable logistic regression was performed among a nationwide cohort of patients who…

Am J Gastroenterol. 1975 Jan;63(1):40-8 Authors: Greenstein AJ, Kark AE, Dreiling DA Abstract In 160 cases with granulomatous colitis or ileocolitis, blood was found in the stool in 72 or 45%. Massive bleeding occurred in four patients (25%); overt bleeding in 51 (32%) and occult bleeding, repeated guaiac positive stools, in 17 (11%). Thus, clinically obvious bleeding occurred in about one patient in three. Of the four patients…

Am J Gastroenterol. 1979 Feb;71(2):202-5 Authors: Kraus J, Schneider R Abstract A patient with granulomatous gastritis is described. Two years after the presentation of his gastric disease he developed pernicious anemia. Lack of intrinsic factor production secondary to Crohn’s disease of the stomach is felt to be the cause of his Vitamin B12 malabsorption.
