BACKGROUND Limited data are available on paediatric inflammatory bowel diseases in Eastern Europe. Our aim was to analyse disease characteristics in the population-based Veszprem province database between 1977 and 2011. METHODS 187 (10.5%, ulcerative colitis/Crohn's disease/undetermined colitis: 88/95/4) out of 1565 incident patients were diagnosed with a(More)
BACKGROUND Significance of pancreatic autoantibodies determined by using exocrine pancreas (PAB) and antibodies against recombinant pancreas antigen (rPAB), as well as the importance of autoantibodies against goblet cells (GAB), is not known in pediatric patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Our aim was to determine the complex analysis of PAB,(More)

The aim of this study was to analyze the relationship between smoking and IBD risk in a population-based database from Veszprem Province, which included(More)
