OBJECTIVES To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of ultrasound in assessing active Crohn's disease (CD) in adults. METHODS We systematically searched PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science and the Cochrane Library for prospective studies in which ultrasound was performed to evaluate active CD in adults from January 1993 to April 2013. Pooled sensitivity,(More)
BACKGROUND The traditional Chinese medicine, Tripterygium wilfordii Hook F (TwHF) is widely used to treat Crohn's disease (CD) in China. METHODS The authors compared different doses of TwHF with mesalazine in 198 patients with CD over a 52-week period. Subjects were randomized to receive mesalazine (3 g/d), low-dose TwHF (1.5 mg·kg·d), or high-dose TwHF(More)
Approximately 50 % of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) suffer from anaemia, with Fe deficiency being the most common cause. CD52 monoclonal antibody (mAb) targets the cell surface CD52 and is effective in depleting lymphocytes through cytolytic effects in vivo. The aim of the present study was to investigate the therapeutic effect of(More)
The explosive growth in data and database has generated an urgent need for new techniques and tools that can intelligently and automatically transform the processed data into useful information and knowledge. Data mining is such a technique. In this paper, we consider the mining of association rules from remotely sensed data and its application in(More)
Intestinal inflammation causes tight junction changes and death of epithelial cells, and plays an important role in the development of Crohn's disease (CD). CD52 monoclonal antibody (CD52 mAb) directly targets the cell surface CD52 and is effective in depleting mature lymphocytes by cytolytic effects in vivo, leading to long-lasting changes in adaptive(More)
Loss of intestinal epithelial barrier function including typical tight junction changes and epithelial cell apoptosis plays an important role in Crohn's disease. SEW2871, a selective sphingosine-1-phosphate type-1 receptor agonist, has been proven to be efficient in protecting against colitis in IL-10(-/-) mice in our previous study. Here we performed(More)
BACKGROUND Enteral nutrition [EN] was reported to be as effective as steroids in achieving short-term remission in patients with Crohn's disease [CD], and exclusive EN [EEN] is widely used as primary therapy in children with CD. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of a specific multi-fibre mix [MF], designed to match the fibre content of a(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Crohn's disease is an autoimmune disease associated with imbalanced mucosal immunity, mediated with increased Th1 and Th17 cells. Laquinimod, an immunomodulatory drug, has shown efficacy in regulating the differentiation of T cells. The aim of the study was to investigate the therapeutic effect of laquinimod on spontaneous colitis in(More)
The impact of preoperative enteral nutrition (EN) on postoperative complications and recurrence in Crohn’s disease (CD) has not been investigated to date. The purpose of the present study was to determine the effect of preoperative exclusive EN on postoperative complications and recurrence after bowel resection in patients with active CD. Patient data were(More)
