New treatment options for inflammatory bowel diseases.

New treatment options for inflammatory bowel diseases. J Gastroenterol. 2018 Mar 19;: Authors: Verstockt B, Ferrante M, Vermeire S, Van Assche G Abstract The advent of anti-TNF agents has dramatically changed the treatment algorithms for IBD in the last 15 years, but primarily and more importantly secondary loss of response is often observed. Fortunately , new treatment options have been actively explored and some have already entered our clinical practice. In the class of anti-cytokine agents, the anti-IL12/IL23 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) have entered clinical practice with the anti-p40 mAb ustekinumab in…

Induction of PIR-A/B+ DCs in the in vitro inflammatory condition and their immunoregulatory function.

Related Articles Induction of PIR-A/B+ DCs in the in vitro inflammatory condition and their immunoregulatory function. J Gastroenterol. 2018 Mar 05;: Authors: Matsui F, Inaba M, Uchida K, Nishio A, Fukui T, Yoshimura H, Satake A, Yoshioka K, Nomura S, Okazaki K Abstract BACKGROUND: Dendritic cells (DCs), primary antigen-presenting cells, are now well known as an immunoregulator of many aspects of immune responses including inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. We have reported that PIR-A/Bhigh cDCs (conventional DCs) appeared in dextran sodium sulfate (DSS)-induced colitis…

Pharmacogenetics of thiopurines for inflammatory bowel disease in East Asia: prospects for clinical application of NUDT15 genotyping.

Pharmacogenetics of thiopurines for inflammatory bowel disease in East Asia: prospects for clinical application of NUDT15 genotyping. J Gastroenterol. 2017 Nov 30;: Authors: Kakuta Y, Kinouchi Y, Shimosegawa T Abstract The thiopurine drugs 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) and azathiopurine (AZA) are widely used to treat inflammatory bowel disease. However, the incidence of adverse reactions is high, particularly in Asia, and the mechanisms of toxicity in Asian populations remain unclear. Thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT) is a well-known enzyme that inactivates AZA or 6-MP through methylation and is one of the few pharmacogenetic predictors used…

Clinical importance of IL-22 cascade in IBD.

Related Articles Clinical importance of IL-22 cascade in IBD. J Gastroenterol. 2017 Oct 26;: Authors: Mizoguchi A, Yano A, Himuro H, Ezaki Y, Sadanaga T, Mizoguchi E Abstract IL-22 is a relatively new cytokine that is characterized by several unique biological properties. In the intestines, the effect of IL-22 is restricted mainly to non-lymphoid cells such as epithelial cells. Interestingly, the expression pattern and major cellular source of IL-22 have distinct difference between large and small intestines. IL-22 possesses an ability to constitutively activate STAT3 for promoting epithelial cell regeneration…
