French national consensus clinical guidelines for the management of ulcerative colitis.

Ulcerative colitis: unravelling the uncertainty in diagnosis and management

TLDR
This article provides a guide for GPs to aid in the prompt diagnosis of potential new cases of UC and the appropriate treatment of flares in people with established UC.

Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Occurrence, course and prognosis during the first year of disease in a European population-based inception cohort.

TLDR
A prospective European population-based inception cohort of incident IBD patients was created to investigate whether an East-West gradient in the incidence of IBD exists in Europe and whether the earlier and more frequent treatment with immunomodulators and biologicals observed in this study will change the natural disease course and phenotypes over time.

Management of Paediatric Ulcerative Colitis, Part 1: Ambulatory Care- an Evidence-Based Guideline from ECCO and ESPGHAN.

TLDR
These guidelines provide a guide to clinicians managing children with UC and IBDU to provide modern management strategies while maintaining vigilance around appropriate outcomes and safety issues.

Second Korean guidelines for the management of ulcerative colitis

TLDR
This is an update of the first Korean guidelines for the management of UC, and encompasses treatment of active colitis, maintenance of remission, and indication of surgery for UC.

Implementation of the French national consensus for the management of ulcerative colitis into clinical practice.

Management of difficult-to-treat patients with ulcerative colitis: focus on adalimumab

TLDR
The current evidence indicates that adalimumab is effective for the treatment of patients with different types of ulcerative colitis, including biologically naïve and difficult-to-treat patients.

Management of ulcerative colitis in Taiwan: consensus guideline of the Taiwan Society of Inflammatory Bowel Disease

TLDR
Patients should be evaluated for hepatitis B virus and tuberculosis infection prior to immunosuppressive treatment, especially with steroids and biologic agents, and should be regularly monitored for reactivation of latent infection.

East–West gradient in the incidence of inflammatory bowel disease in Europe: the ECCO-EpiCom inception cohort

TLDR
Whether an East–West gradient in the incidence of inflammatory bowel disease in Europe exists is investigated to find out whether international guidelines for diagnosis and initial treatment are not being followed uniformly by physicians.

Impact of the age of diagnosis on the natural history of ulcerative colitis.

TLDR
When diagnosed before the age of 40-years-old, UC preferably affects women and manifests as a more severe disease, with more frequent hospitalizations and chronic intermittent symptoms.

Clinical uniformity of inflammatory bowel disease at presentation and during the first year of disease in the north and south of Europe

TLDR
The standard of diagnosis and clinical features of IBD are similar in specialist centres throughout Europe so providing a valid basis for this aspect of collaborative epidemiological or other studies.

Clinical uniformity of inflammatory bowel disease a presentation and during the first year of disease in the north and south of Europe. EC-IBD Study Group.

The standard of diagnosis and clinical features of IBD are similar in specialist centres throughout Europe so providing a valid basis for this aspect of collaborative epidemiological or other studies.

Clinical course during the first 10 years of ulcerative colitis: results from a population-based inception cohort (IBSEN Study)

TLDR
The prognosis for UC during the first 10 years was generally good, the colectomy rate was low, and a large proportion of patients were in remission as time progressed, suggesting patients with initially extensive colitis and elevated ESR could benefit from an early potent medical treatment strategy.

Incidence of inflammatory bowel disease across Europe: is there a difference between north and south? Results of the European Collaborative Study on Inflammatory Bowel Disease (EC-IBD).

TLDR
The higher overall incidence rates in northern centres did not seem to be explained by differences in tobacco consumption or education, and the magnitude of the observed excess for both conditions is less than expected on the basis of previous studies.

Update on the etiology, pathogenesis and diagnosis of ulcerative colitis

TLDR
The diagnosis of ulcerative colitis is being aided by recent advances in diagnostic strategies, including the detection of fecal and serologic markers and the use of wireless capsule endoscopy, but, in the absence of a pathognomonic marker, the definition of this disease remains undefined.
