PATHOGENESIS OF CROHN'S DISEASE: MULTIFOCAL GASTROINTESTINAL INFARCTION
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.
Mucosal capillary thrombi in rectal biopsies
Thrombi were observed in 8/13 cases of ulcerative colitis, 4/10 cases of Crohn's disease, 1/3 cases of unspecified inflammatory bowel disease and 5/20 cases of self‐limited colitis; the presence of capillary thrombi was not related to the severity of inflammation, but none of the control biopsies showed capillary Thrombi.
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.
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.
Inherited disorders of coagulation appear to protect against inflammatory bowel disease.
