OBJECTIVES:The natural history of ulcerative colitis (UC) has been poorly described in children.METHODS:In a geographically derived incidence cohort diagnosed from 1988 to 2002, we identified 113 UC patients (age 0â€“17 years at diagnosis) with a follow-up of at least 2 years. The...
- Genetics in twins with Crohn's disease: less pronounced than previously believed? Halfvarson, J. // Inflammatory Bowel Disease Monitor;2011, Vol. 11 Issue 4, p161
A number of twin studies have previously been conducted to estimate concordance rates and thus the genetic contribution in IBD. However, many of these studies have had methodological limitations, including the lack of standardization according to age. This author aimed to establish concordance...

Worldwide the frequencies of inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis and Crohnï¿½s disease have all increased. In our own environment it has become necessary to establish the epidemiology of these entities and to determine their clinical and endoscopic behavior. Methodology: This is a...
- In siblings with similar genetic susceptibility for inflammatory bowel disease, smokers tend to develop Crohn's disease and non-smokers develop ulcerative colitis. Bridger, S.; Lee, J.C.W.; Bjarnason, I.; Lennard Jones, J.E.; Macpherson, A.J. // Gut;Jul2002, Vol. 51 Issue 1, p21
Background and aims: Smoking tobacco has opposite effects on the different forms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It predisposes to the development of Crohn's disease (CD) yet is associated with a reduced incidence of ulcerative colitis (UC). We have studied sib pairs discordant for both...

- Kallikrein-kinin system activation in Crohnâ€™s disease: differences in intestinal and systemic markers Devani, Massimo; Cugno, Massimo; Vecchi, Maurizio; Ferrero, Stefano; Di Berardino, Federica; Avesani, Ettore Contessini; de Franchis, Roberto; Colman, Robert W. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Aug2002, Vol. 97 Issue 8, p2026
OBJECTIVES:Observations in experimental models and in human ulcerative colitis suggest that activation of the kallikrein-kinin system plays a role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease. The aim of this study was to assess activation of the plasma and tissue kallikrein-kinin system in...
