OBJECTIVES To investigate the expression of Igγ-1 chain C region (IGHG1) in human pancreatic carcinomas and determine the biological function of IGHG1 expression in immune evasion mechanisms. METHODS Comparative proteomic analysis was used to detect the differential expression of IGHG1 in human pancreatic cancer tissues versus adjacent noncancerous(More)
Crohn's disease (CD) represents a heterogeneous group of chronic inflammatory disorders with various phenotypes. Establishing a definite diagnosis of CD should be based upon a combined assessment of clinical, endoscopic, radiological and pathological features.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Pouchitis, representing a spectrum of disease phenotypes, is the most common long-term complication in patients who have undergone restorative proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA). Its management and prevention are challenging. RECENT FINDINGS Treatment modalities vary according to phenotypes of pouchitis. The medical(More)
A subset of patients with a pre-operative diagnosis of ulcerative colitis can develop Crohn’s disease (CD) of the pouch after restorative proctocolectomy. While appendectomy has been implicated to be associated with an increased risk for CD, its impact on the development of de novo CD of the pouch in patients’ ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) has not(More)
