Clinical and Basic Investigations Into Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome
Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome (HPS) is an inherited disease which results in decreased pigmentation (oculocutaneous albinism), bleeding problems due to a platelet abnormality (platelet storage pool defect), and storage of an abnormal fat-protein compound (lysosomal accumulation of ceroid lipofuscin). The disease can cause poor functioning of the lungs, intestine, kidneys, or heart. The major complication of the disease is pulmonary fibrosis and typically causes death in patients ages 40 - 50 years old. The disorder is common in Puerto Rico, where many of the clinical research studies on the disease have been conducted. Neither the full...
Colorectal Cancer in Crohn's Disease
Retrospective multicentre study. All patients with a diagnosis of Crohn's disease (CD) and operated for colorectal cancer (CRC) between 01/01/2010 and 01/01/2020 will be included in the dataset. Data will include preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative variables, with long term follow up when feasible. The study will focus on a comparison between patients treated with total proctocolectomy (TPC) and patients treated with subtotal colectomy (STC) or segmental resection (SR). Primary endpoints will be oncologic outcomes, postoperative morbidity and mortality. Secondary endpoints include quality of life (QoL).
Combination Corticosteroids+5-aminosalicylic Acids Compared to Corticosteroids Alone (for Ulcerative Colitis).
The role of steroids in the treatment of severe ulcerative colitis (UC) exacerbation is well established and recommended by professional societies. Similarly, 5-aminosalycilates (5-ASA) agents in the form of mesalamine/mesalzine are well established proven therapy in mild-moderate UC, and the combination of oral 5-ASA with topical (per-rectal enema) 5-ASA was shown to be superior to oral 5ASA alone in patients with mild moderate UC. Thus, in most cases, when a patient with UC experiences a flare while taking 5-ASA therapy, treatment is usually optimized by maximizing the oral dose to 4gr/day and adding topical therapy until the flare...
Combination of Diet and 5ASA ( 5-aminosalicylic Acid) for Ulcerative Colitis
Combination Therapy with Drug and Diet for Induction of Remission in Mild to Moderate Active Pediatric Ulcerative colitis: A Single Blinded, International Randomized Controlled Trial
Comparing the Effectiveness of IV Bezlotoxumab Versus Placebo in Decreasing Morbidity and Mortality in Patients With Fulminant C. Diff Requiring Surgery.
A new medication, Bezlotoxumab, has been approved for treatment of recurrent Clostridium difficile diarrhea by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The way this new medication works, is by binding the toxin produced by C. difficile bacteria and preventing damage to the large bowel. The toxin, and not the bacteria, is responsible for the damage, resulting in the clinical symptoms seen in patients. Sometimes, the infection can make a patient severely ill with organ failure and death. If severe enough, the infection requires surgery to remove the large bowel and allow the patient a better chance at recovery. Even with surgery and removal ...
Comparison of Environmental Factors Between the Areas of Over- and Under-incidence of Crohn's Disease in the Haut de France Region, by the Study of Dental Exposomes
the aim of this preliminary observational study is to compare external exposomes from 10 teeth issued through 10 subjects living in high incidence of crohn's disease area and 10 teeth issued through 10 subjects living in low incidence of crohn's disease area.
COmparison of MicroBiota AccordIng to Age in Crohn's Disease (COMeBACk)
The cause of CD could be different according to age at onset of CD symptoms. Indeed we know that some very young patients at CD diagnosis have particular genetic variants as abnormalities of the IL10R that are regarded as quite monogenic disease. In the other way, the microbiota also undergoes substantial changes at the extremes of life, in infants and older people and the ramifications of which are very few being explored. The comparison of microbiota by principal component analysis and genetic profile of patients with CD beginning at the extremes of life could help us to better known physiopathology of CD according to age and...

Control Crohn Safe Trial
Crohn's disease (CD) is a chronic disease with a heterogeneous clinical presentation, relapse rate and treatment response. Insufficient control of mucosal inflammation results in irreversible bowel damage and complications and at present no markers are available to predict such a complicated disease course at diagnosis. Therefore, to prevent overtreatment of low risk patients, step-up treatment with subsequent introduction of corticosteroids, thiopurines maintenance and TNF-blockers if a previous category fails is standard care. Combination treatment with thiopurines and a TNF-blocker is more effective than monotherapy but associated...
