Kevin; O'Sullivan, Gerald C.; O'Connell, Joe; Shanahan, Fergus // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Aug2004, Vol. 99 Issue 8, p1539 

    OBJECTIVES: We previously reported the use of laser capture microdissection (LCM) and PCR to detect the presence ofMycobacterium paratuberculosisDNA in granulomas of patients with Crohn's disease. While this does not imply a cause-effect relationship, it may influence the disease process because...

    Background: Defects in the small intestinal epithelial barrier have been associated with inflammatory bowel disease but their role in the causation of disease is still a matter of debate. In some models of disease increased permeability appears to be a very early event. The interleukin 10 (IL10)...

    Background and aims: Barrier dysfunction is an important feature contributing to inflammation and diarrhea in Crohn's disease (CD). Recently, tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) antibodies were recognised as effective in steroid refractory CD. The aim of this study was to characterize the...

    A 54-yr-old man with a 22-yr history of Crohn's disease was found to have a microscopic focus of immunoblastic lymphoma within a segment of small bowel resected to relieve intestinal obstruction. There was no other clinically evident disease. Thirty months later, he developed axillary adenopathy...

    Background and aims: Epithelioid granulomas is one of the best histological criterion for distinguishing Crohn's disease (CD) from other in Hammatory bowel diseases. Few data are available on the time of occurrence of epithelioid granulomas, and the value of epithelioid granulomas in predicting...
