    The association between primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) and IBD is well documented, and the IBD in these cases may represent a distinct disease phenotype. Up to 90% of patients with PSC have IBD, usually ulcerative colitis (UC), while IBD is accompanied by PSC in approximately 5% of IBD...

    Objective: The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between a new activity index and the endoscopic severity assessed by sigmoidoscopy in patients with ulcerative colitis. Methods: We evaluated the sigmoidoscopic severity and Activity Index (AI) in 37 patients with distal colitis,...

    Background: The relapsing nature and varying geographical prevalence of ulcerative colitis (UC) implicates environmental factors such as diet in its aetiology. Methods: In order to determine which foods might be related to disease activity in UC a new method of dietary analysis was developed and...
