Mitochondrial dysfunction, persistent oxidative damage, and catalase inhibition in immune cells of naïve and treated Crohn's disease
Background: Oxidative stress is considered a potential etiological factor for Crohn's disease (CD). We characterized the reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated in immune peripheral cells of CDExpand

Identification of serum and tissue micro‐RNA expression profiles in different stages of inflammatory bowel disease
The altered expression of micro‐RNA (miRNA) has been associated with Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). The aim of this study was to establish specific miRNA expression patterns in theExpand

Role of oxidative stress and antioxidant enzymes in Crohn's disease.
There is increasing interest in oxidative stress being a potential aetiological factor and/or a triggering factor in Crohn's disease, rather than a concomitant occurrence during the pathogenesis ofExpand

Immunological Mechanisms of Adsorptive Cytapheresis in Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease are the two main forms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The study of immunological pathways involved in the onset of IBD is of fundamental importance toExpand

MicroRNAs in autoimmunity and inflammatory bowel disease: crucial regulators in immune response.
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have recently emerged as a new class of modulators of gene expression at the post-transcriptional level. The function of miRNA is the control of protein production by targetingExpand
