We performed a cohort study to determine the risk for recurrent VTE among patients with IBD compared with subjects without IBD. METHODS We assessed 2811 patients with IBD for a history(More)
Polymorphic acetylation was investigated in twenty-seven patients with Gilbert's syndrome using the sulphadimidine test. Whereas the finding of 51% slow acetylators in seventy-eight control persons agreed well with the expected frequency in a continental European population, the prevalence of slow acetylators in Gilbert's syndrome was increased to 78% (P(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are at increased risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE), but data on frequency, site of thrombosis and risk factors are limited. We sought to determine prevalence, incidence as well as location and clinical features of first VTE among IBD patients. METHODS We evaluated a cohort of 2811 IBD(More)
This is a consensus of the Austrian working group of IBD (inflammatory bowel diseases) of the ÖGGH on nutrition in IBD. Malnutrition should be assessed in case of IBD (in 20 - 70 % of Crohn's patients) and weight loss(> 5 % within 3 months) or nutritional deficiencies or after extensive bowel resection and afterwards also treated. Malnutrition should be(More)
Infliximab is a monoclonal antibody against tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), which is approved for the treatment of chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) such as Crohn's disease (CD), fistulating Crohn's disease (FCD), ulcerative colitis (UC), and paediatric ulcerative colitis (PUC) from 6 years onwards. Besides its therapeutic efficacy, this(More)
