Pregnancy-Onset Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Subtle Diagnosis.

Pregnancy-Onset Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Subtle Diagnosis. Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2018 May 17;: Authors: Koslowsky B, Grisaru-Granovsky S, Livovsky DM, Milgrom Y, Goldin E, Bar-Gil Shitrit A Abstract Background: Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) are commonly diagnosed during the reproductive years. IBD first manifested during pregnancy (pregnancy-onset IBD [POIBD]) is still an undescribed entity. The aim of the study was to evaluate the characteristics and maternal and neonatal outcomes of patients with POIBD.

Anti-TNF levels in cord blood at birth are associated with anti-TNF type.

Related Articles Anti-TNF levels in cord blood at birth are associated with anti-TNF type. J Crohns Colitis. 2018 May 15;: Authors: Kanis SL, de Lima A, van der Ent C, Rizopoulos D, van der Woude CJ Abstract Background and Aims: Pregnancy guidelines for women with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) provide recommendations regarding anti-TNF cessation during pregnancy, in order to limit fetal exposure. Although infliximab (IFX) leads to higher anti-TNF concentrations in cord blood than adalimumab (ADA), recommendations are similar. We aimed to demonstrate the effect of anti-TNF cessation during pregnancy…

Fecal Calprotectin During Pregnancy in Women With Moderate-Severe Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

Fecal Calprotectin During Pregnancy in Women With Moderate-Severe Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2018 Feb 28;: Authors: Kammerlander H, Nielsen J, Kjeldsen J, Knudsen T, Gradel KO, Friedman S, Nørgård BM Abstract Background: Fecal calprotectin (FC) is a biomarker used for assessing disease activity among IBD patients. Sparse knowledge exists as to whether FC correlates with clinical disease activity during pregnancy. Our aim was to assess FC and selected biomarkers in women with moderate-severe IBD and correlate them with clinical disease activity scores in pregnant women. Methods: We identified…
