Related Articles Obesity/Bariatric Surgery and Crohn’s Disease. J Clin Gastroenterol. 2017 May 09;: Authors: Korelitz BI, Sonpal N, Schneider J, Swaminath A, Felder J, Roslin M, Aronoff J Abstract BACKGROUND: Crohn’s disease (CD) following bariatric surgery has been previously described. It is not clear whether the clinical entity is due to rapid metabolism of fat, change in the bacterial milieu of the bowel, the loss of defense mechanisms of the stomach, or even a coincidence. OBJECTIVES: To present observations which might serve to sort out these various etiologies. DESIGN: We…

Long-term Extent Change of Pediatric-Onset Ulcerative Colitis.

Long-term Extent Change of Pediatric-Onset Ulcerative Colitis. J Clin Gastroenterol. 2017 Jan 06;: Authors: Rinawi F, Assa A, Hartman C, Mozer Glassberg Y, Nachmias Friedler V, Rosenbach Y, Silbermintz A, Zevit N, Shamir R Abstract BACKGROUND: Data describing extent change (progression or regression) in pediatric-onset ulcerative colitis (UC) are scarce. GOAL: We aimed to describe extent change in pediatric-onset UC during long-term follow-up and to assess predictors of extent change. STUDY: Medical charts of pediatric-onset UC patients with at least 5-year follow-up were analyzed retrospectively. Disease extent was determined using…

Clinical and Fecal Microbial Changes With Diet Therapy in Active Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

Clinical and Fecal Microbial Changes With Diet Therapy in Active Inflammatory Bowel Disease. J Clin Gastroenterol. 2016 Dec 27;: Authors: Suskind DL, Cohen SA, Brittnacher MJ, Wahbeh G, Lee D, Shaffer ML, Braly K, Hayden HS, Klein J, Gold B, Giefer M, Stallworth A, Miller SI Abstract GOAL: To determine the effect of the specific carbohydrate diet (SCD) on active inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). BACKGROUND: IBD is a chronic idiopathic inflammatory intestinal disorder associated with fecal dysbiosis. Diet is a potential therapeutic option for IBD based on the hypothesis that…

There is Significant Practice Pattern Variability in the Management of the Hospitalized Ulcerative Colitis Patient at a Tertiary Care and IBD Referral Center.

There is Significant Practice Pattern Variability in the Management of the Hospitalized Ulcerative Colitis Patient at a Tertiary Care and IBD Referral Center. J Clin Gastroenterol. 2016 Dec 22;: Authors: Shah SC, Naymagon S, Cohen BL, Sands BE, Dubinsky MC Abstract BACKGROUND AND GOALS: Despite published clinical guidelines, substantive data underlying the approach to the management of hospitalized ulcerative colitis (UC) patients failing outpatient therapy are lacking. Variability in practice is therefore not uncommon and may impact clinical outcomes. The degree of variability, however, is not well-studied. Our aim was…

Within-Stool and Within-Day Sample Variability of Fecal Calprotectin in Patients With Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Prospective Observational Study.

Within-Stool and Within-Day Sample Variability of Fecal Calprotectin in Patients With Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Prospective Observational Study. J Clin Gastroenterol. 2016 Dec 22;: Authors: Du L, Foshaug R, Huang VW, Kroeker KI, Dieleman LA, Halloran BP, Wong K, Fedorak RN Abstract BACKGROUND AND GOALS: The use of fecal calprotectin (FC) as a stool biomarker for differentiating inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) from IBS has been well validated, and there is a strong correlation between FC and the presence of endoscopic inflammatory lesions. However, recent studies have demonstrated intraindividual sample variability…
