- Interleukin-10 Enhances the Intestinal Epithelial Barrier in the Presence of Corticosteroids through p38 MAPK Activity in Caco-2 Monolayers: A Possible Mechanism for Steroid Responsiveness in Ulcerative Colitis. Lorén, Violeta; Cabré, Eduard; Ojanguren, Isabel; Domènech, Eugeni; Pedrosa, Elisabet; García-Jaraquemada, Arce; Mañosa, Miriam; Manyé, Josep // PLoS ONE;Jun2015, Vol. 10 Issue 6, p1
Glucocorticosteroids are the first line therapy for moderate-severe flare-ups of ulcerative colitis. Despite that, up to 60% of patients do not respond adequately to steroid treatment. Previously, we reported that low IL-10 mRNA levels in intestine are associated with a poor response to...

- Oral Beclomethasone Dipropionate as an Alternative to Systemic Steroids in Mild to Moderate Ulcerative Colitis Not Responding to Aminosalicylates. Papi, Claudio; Aratari, Annalisa; Moretti, Alessandra; Mangone, Manuela; Margagnoni, Giovanna; Koch, Maurizio; Capurso, Lucio // Digestive Diseases & Sciences;Jul2010, Vol. 55 Issue 7, p2002
Aminosalicylates (5-ASA) are first-line treatment for mild-moderate ulcerative colitis (UC). Systemic corticosteroids (CS) are considered for patients in whom 5-ASA has been unsuccessful, but their use is limited by adverse effects. Beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP), a topically acting steroid...

Ri Shin; Kyung Hwan Kang; Min Kyoung Kim; Hyun Jin Park; Hoe Hoon Chung; Eun Jung Hwang // Intestinal Research;2012, Vol. 10 Issue 3, p251
Background/Aims: Some clinical and laboratory parameter are predictors to determine steroid treatment failure in patients acute severe ulcerative colitis. We aimed to validate previous models in the Korean patients. Methods: This study was conducted retrospectively with 70 patients who were...
- Faecal calprotectin, lactoferrin, M2-pyruvate kinase and S100A12 in severe ulcerative colitis: a prospective multicentre comparison of predicting outcomes and monitoring response. Turner, D.; Leach, S. T.; Mack, D.; Uusoue, K.; McLernon, R.; Hyams, J.; Leleiko, N.; Walters, T. D.; Crandall, W.; Markowitz, J.; Otley, A. R.; Griffiths, A. M.; Day, A. S. // Gut;Sep2010, Vol. 59 Issue 9, p1207
OBJECTIVE: To compare four faecal markers for their ability to predict steroid refractoriness in severe paediatric ulcerative colitis (UC). Construct validity and responsiveness to change were also assessed. METHODS: This was a prospective multicentre cohort study. Stool samples from 101...
