ASSOCIATION OF CELIAC DISEASE AND INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE: A NATIONWIDE REGISTER-BASED COHORT STUDY.

Am J Gastroenterol 2022 May 25. Epub 2022 May 25.

Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Karolinska Institutet, Solna, Sweden.

Objectives: To determine the risk of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in patients with celiac disease (CeD) (and vice versa) compared to general-population comparators.

Methods: Using Swedish histopathology and healthcare register data, we identified 48,551 patients with CeD and 83,529 with IBD diagnosed in 1969-2016. Each patient was compared to age- and sex-matched general-population comparators (CeD: n=240,136; IBD: n=408,195). Read More

Association between family history of gastric cancer and the risk of gastric cancer and adenoma: A nationwide population-based study.

Am J Gastroenterol 2022 May 25. Epub 2022 May 25.

Department of Internal Medicine, College of Medicine, Ewha Womans University, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Introduction: A family history of gastric cancer (GC) is a well-known risk factor for GC. However, the association between family history of GC and the risk of GC and gastric adenoma according to the affected family members is unclear.

Methods: We analyzed the data of participants aged ≥40 years who underwent national GC screening between 2013 and 2014. Read More

Novel Endoscopic Polypectomy Surveillance Technique for Fundic Gland Polyps in Familial Adenomatous Polyposis Can Improve Early Detection of Dysplasia and Gastric Cancer.

Am J Gastroenterol 2022 May 18. Epub 2022 May 18.

. Karsh Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, United States.

Background Aims: Fundic Gland Polyps (FGPs) are commonly found in familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) patients and are considered benign. Biopsies are not routinely done, and conventional forceps may be time-consuming and/or yield non-representative histology. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of a novel endoscopic polypectomy surveillance (EPS), a large volume cold-snare polypectomy technique of random FGPs, on the incidence of dysplasia and gastric cancer (GC) in FAP.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Mayo Clinic Rochester, Rochester MN.

Abstract: When the only biologics were anti TNF agents, it was not hard to treat our sick Crohn's patients. Now with multiple mechanisms of action the therapeutic landscape is more broad but can be confusing. Trying to compare agents is difficult because head to head trials are lacking. Read More

It has been over 50 years since the Stonewall Inn Riots in June 1969, a seminal event for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and other sexual and gender-diverse minorities (LGBTQI+, or lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and everyone else) rights movement. However, sexual and gender minority (SGM) individuals still face discrimination and harassment due to their sexual orientation or gender identity. As such, the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities has identified SGM communities as a "health disparity population. Read More

Mechanisms Underlying Food-Triggered Symptoms in Disorders of Gut-Brain Interactions.

Am J Gastroenterol 2022 06 4;117(6):937-946. Epub 2022 May 4.

Gastrointestinal Diseases Research Unit, Queen's University, Kingston General Hospital, Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

There has been a dramatic increase in clinical studies examining the relationship between disorders of gut-brain interactions and symptoms evoked by food ingestion in the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract, but study design is challenging to verify valid endpoints. Consequently, mechanistic studies demonstrating biological relevance, biomarkers and novel therapeutic targets are greatly needed. This review highlights emerging mechanisms related to nutrient sensing and tasting, maldigestion, physical effects with underlying visceral hypersensitivity, allergy and immune mechanisms, food-microbiota interactions and gut-brain signaling, with a focus on patients with functional dyspepsia and irritable bowel syndrome.

Proton pump inhibitors and risk of cardiovascular disease: a self-controlled case series study.

Am J Gastroenterol 2022 May 4. Epub 2022 May 4.

Department of Applied Statistics, Yonsei University, Seoul 03722, South Korea.

Objectives: We investigated cardiovascular risk due to proton pump inhibitor (PPI) treatment using a self-controlled case series (SCCS) study design, a type of case-only design and an approach to overcome between-person confounding in which individuals act as their own control.

Methods: We conducted an SCCS study using the National Health Insurance Service-Health Screening cohort in Korea (2002-2015). The cohort included 303,404 adult participants without prior cardiovascular events, who were followed up until December 2015. Read More
