RETRACTED: Ileal-lymphoid-nodular hyperplasia, non-specific colitis, and pervasive developmental disorder in children
BACKGROUND We investigated a consecutive series of children with chronic enterocolitis and regressive developmental disorder. METHODS 12 children (mean age 6 years [range 3-10], 11 boys) wereExpand
The findings suggest that Crohn's disease is mediated by multifocal gastrointestinal infarction, and this pathogenetic process is compatible with many of the clinical features of Crohn't disease, and its recognition has important implications for the identification of the primary cause of the illness and advances in clinical management. Expand
Detection of herpesvirus DNA in the large intestine of patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease using the nested polymerase chain reaction
The high prevalence of coexistent HHV6 infection with either or both of these two viruses in ulcerative colitis tissue suggests that they may play a synergistic role in the pathogenesis of this disease. Expand
Evidence of persistent measles virus infection in Crohn's disease
The observations suggest that measles virus is capable of causing persistent infection of the intestine and that Crohn's disease may be caused by a granulomatous vasculitis in response to this virus. Expand
Prevalence of gastrointestinal diseases in two British national birth cohorts
An increasing temporal trend in the prevalence of CD is indicated and a period effect in IBS is suggested, possibly due to adult life exposures or variation in recognition and diagnosis of IBS. Expand
Inherited disorders of coagulation appear to protect against inflammatory bowel disease.
This epidemiological study provides further evidence that thrombosis and vascular occlusion may be important in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease. Expand
Crohn's disease: pathogenesis and persistent measles virus infection.
Crohn's disease may be a chronic granulomatous vasculitis in reaction to a persistent infection with measles virus within the vascular endothelium, according to preliminary evidence from both epidemiological and basic scientific data. Expand
The concept of entero‐colonic encephalopathy, autism and opioid receptor ligands
The gut–brain axis is central to certain encephalopathies of extra‐cranial origin, hepatic encephalopathy being the best characterized. Expand
Genetics versus environment in inflammatory bowel disease: results of a British twin study
The levels of concordance for inflammatory bowel disease in British twin pairs were determined using the National Association for Colitis and Crohn's Disease's patient support group. Expand
Perinatal measles infection and subsequent Crohn's disease
The hypothesis that measles is related to Crohn's disease and that the perinatal period is a time of vulnerability is strengthened. Expand
