  1. 1. On the regulation and effects of chronic inflammation in inflammatory bowel disease

    University dissertation from Olof Grip, Department of Medicine, Malmö University Hospital, 205 02 Malmö, Sweden

    Author : Olof Grip; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; statins; Gastroenterologi; monocytes; eosinophils; dysplasia; thrombosis; ulcerative colitis; Crohn s disease; inflammation; inflammatory bowel disease; Gastro-enterology;

    Abstract : Inflammatory bowel disease is thought to result from the inappropriate and ongoing activation of the mucosal immune system driven by the presence of normal luminal flora. In this process monocytes/macrophages contribute to and maintain chronic inflammation by being both regulatory and effector cells. READ MORE

    Abstract : Inflammatory bowel diseases, (IBD), are a group of chronic disorders of the gastro-intestinal tract, and include Crohn’s disease (CD) and Ulcerative Colitis (UC). The pathogenesis is not known, but involves at least in part a loss of tolerance towards the commensal colonic microbiota. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bone mineral density in pediatric inflammatory bowel disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Susanne Schmidt; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; bone mineral density; inflammatory bowel disease; children; Crohn s disease; ulcerative colitis; vitamin D; parathyroid hormone; familial resemblance; body composition; growth;

    Abstract : Low bone mineral density (BMD) has been highlighted as a potential problem in children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which is one of the most common chronic childhood diseases in the westernized world. The mechanisms behind reduced BMD in pediatric IBD are still not completely understood, but several factors that influence bone mineralization have been discussed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Autoantigens in Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis

    Abstract : Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) comprises diseases that are characterized by chronic or relapsing inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is an extraintestinal manifestation in IBD. READ MORE

  5. 5. Food Antigen Sensitivity in Coeliac Disease Assessed by the Mucosal Patch Technique

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Guðjón Kristjánsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]

    Abstract : A diagnosis of coeliac disease (CD) in adults relies on the presence of a structurally abnormal intestinal mucosa, followed by a clear clinical remission on a gluten-free diet. There is a clear need for a rapid, simple, safe and sensitive method to determine the type and intensity of inflammation in the gut mucosa in clinical practice. READ MORE
