    Abstract : Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic inflammatory condition affecting the gastrointestinal tract, with a remitting and relapsing course. There are two main forms of IBD: Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). READ MORE

  2. 2. Going trough a colonoscopy and living with inflammatory bowel disease : children's and parents' experiences and evaluation of the bowel cleansing quality prior to colonoscopy

    Author : Vedrana Vejzovic; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : Colonoscopy; Inflammatory bowel diseases; Randomised control trial; Content analysis; Phenomenological hermeneutics;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on children aged 10-18 years with symptoms of, ordiagnosed with, inflammatory bowel disease (henceforth referred to as IBD).Before the disease can be diagnosed, a child must undergo several procedures,with colonoscopy as an established investigation, including bowel cleansing,which is crucial for the safe examination of the intestine.

    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

  4. 4. Serological and faecal biomarkers in inflammatory bowel disease

    Author : Karin Amcoff; Jonas Halfvarson; Marie Carlsson; Hans Törnblom; Örebro universitet; []

    Abstract : The inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, are relapsing and remitting disorders characterised by chronic inflammation at various sites in the gastrointestinal tract, resulting in diarrhoea and abdominal pain. Neither the aetiology nor the pathophysiology is yet fully understood, and there is currently no cure. READ MORE

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

    Author : Susanne Schmidt; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    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
