    Concordance in Anti-OmpC and Anti-I2 Indicate the Influence of Genetic Predisposition: Results of a European Study of Twins with Crohn's Disease2016In: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis, ISSN 1873-9946, E-ISSN 1876-4479, Vol. 10, no 6, p. 695-702Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background and Aims: An adaptive immunological response to microbial antigens has been observed in Crohn's disease (CD). Intriguingly, this serological response precedes the diagnosis in some patients and has also been observed in healthy relatives. We aimed to determine whether genetic factors are implicated in this response in a CD twin cohort.

    Methods: In total, 82 twin pairs (Leuven n = 13, Maastricht n = 8, Örebro n = 61) took part: 81 pairs with CD (concordant monozygotic n = 16, discordant monozygotic n = 22, concordant dizygotic n = 3, discordant dizygotic n = 40) and 1 monozygotic pair with both CD and ulcerative colitis. Serology for Pseudomonas fluorescens-related protein (anti-I2), Escherichia coli outer membrane porin C (anti-OmpC), CBir1flagellin (anti-CBir1) and antibodies to oligomannan (anti-Saccharomyces cerevisiae antibody [ASCA]) was determined by standardized enzyme-linked immunoassay.

    Results: All markers were more often present in CD twins than in their healthy twin siblings. Using the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC), agreements in concentrations of anti-OmpC and anti-I2 were observed in discordant monozygotic but not in discordant dizygotic twin pairs with CD (anti-OmpC, ICC 0.80 and -0.02, respectively) and (anti-I2, ICC 0.56 and 0.05, respectively). In contrast, no agreements were found in anti-CBir, immunoglobulin (Ig) G ASCA and ASCA IgA.

    Conclusions: We show that anti-I2 and anti-CBir1 statuses have specificity for CD and confirm previous reported specificities for anti-OmpC and ASCA. Based on quantitative analyses and observed ICCs, genetics seems to predispose to the anti-OmpC and anti-I2 response but less to ASCA and anti-CBir1 responses.

    Environmental factors in a population-based inception cohort of inflammatory bowel disease patients in Europe: An ECCO-EpiCom study2014In: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis, ISSN 1873-9946, E-ISSN 1876-4479, Vol. 8, no 7, p. 607-616Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background and Aims: The incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is increasing in Eastern Europe possibly due to changes in environmental factors towards a more "westernised" standard of Living. The aim of this study was to investigate differences in exposure to environmental factors prior to diagnosis in Eastern and Western European IBD patients.

    Methods: The EpiCom cohort is a population-based, prospective inception cohort of 1560 unselected IBD patients from 31 European countries covering a background population of 10.1 million. At the time of diagnosis patients were asked to complete an 87-item questionnaire concerning environmental factors.

    Results: A total of 1182 patients (76%) answered the questionnaire, 444 (38%) had Crohn's disease (CD), 627 (53%) ulcerative colitis (UC), and 111 (9%) IBD unclassified. No geographic differences regarding smoking status, caffeine intake, use of oral contraceptives, or number of first-degree relatives with IBD were found. Sugar intake was higher in CD and UC patients from Eastern Europe than in Western Europe while fibre intake was lower (p < 0.01). Daily consumption of fast food as well as appendectomy before the age of 20 was more frequent in Eastern European than in Western European UC patients (p < 0.01). Eastern European CD and UC patients had received more vaccinations and experienced fewer childhood infections than Western European patients (p < 0.01).

    Conclusions: In this European population-based inception cohort of unselected IBD patients, Eastern and Western European patients differed in environmental factors prior to diagnosis. Eastern European patients exhibited higher occurrences of suspected risk factors for IBD included in the Western lifestyle. (C) 2013 European Crohn's and Colitis Organisation.

    Health care and patients' education in a European inflammatory bowel disease inception cohort: an ECCO-EpiCom study2014In: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis, ISSN 1873-9946, E-ISSN 1876-4479, Vol. 8, no 8, p. 811-818Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background and Aims: The EpiCom study and inception cohort was initiated in 2010 in 31 centers from 14 Western and 8 Eastern European countries, covering a 10.1 million person background population. Our aim was to investigate whether there is a difference between Eastern and Western Europe in health care and education of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

    Methods: A quality of care (QoC) questionnaire was developed in the EpiCom group consisting of 16 questions covering 5 items: time interval between the onset of symptoms and diagnosis, information, education, empathy and access to health care providers.

    Results: Of 1,515 patients, 947 (217 east/730 west) answered the QoC questionnaire. Only 23% of all patients had knowledge about IBD before diagnosis. In Eastern Europe, significantly more patients searched out information about IBD themselves (77% vs. 68%, p < 0.05), the main source was the Internet (92% vs. 88% p = 0.23). In Western Europe, significantly more patients were educated by nurses (19% vs. 1%, p < 0.05), while in Eastern Europe, gastroenterologists were easier to contact (80% vs. 68%, p < 0.05).

    Conclusion: Health care differed significantly between Eastern and Western Europe in all items, but satisfaction rates were high in both geographic regions. Because of the low awareness and the rising incidence of IBD, general information should be the focus of patient organizations and medical societies. In Western Europe IBD nurses play a very important role in reducing the burden of patient management. (c) 2014 European Crohn's and Colitis Organisation. Published by Elsevier B.V.

    Health-related quality of life improves during one year of medical and surgical treatment in a European population-based inception cohort of patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease: An ECCO-EpiCom study2014In: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis, ISSN 1873-9946, E-ISSN 1876-4479, Vol. 8, no 9, p. 1030-1042Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background & Aims: Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is impaired in patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). The aim was prospectively to assess and validate the pattern of HRQoL in an unselected, population-based inception cohort of IBD patients from Eastern and Western Europe.

    Methods: The EpiCom inception cohort consists of 1560 IBD patients from 31 European centres covering a background population of approximately 10.1 million. Patients answered the disease specific Short Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (SIBDQ) and generic Short Form 12 (SF-12) questionnaire at diagnosis and after one year of follow-up.

    Results: In total, 1079 patients were included in this study. Crohn's disease (CD) patients mean SIBDQ scores improved from 45.3 to 55.3 in Eastern Europe and from 44.9 to 53.6 in Western Europe. SIBDQ scores for ulcerative colitis (UC) patients improved from 44.9 to 57.4 and from 48.8 to 55.7, respectively. UC patients needing surgery or biologicals had lower SIBDQ scores before and after compared to the rest, while biological therapy improved SIBDQ scores in CD. CD and UC patients in both regions improved all SF-12 scores. Only Eastern European UC patients achieved SF-12 summary scores equal to or above the normal population.

    Conclusion: Medical and surgical treatment improved HRQoL during the first year of disease. The majority of IBD patients in both Eastern and Western Europe reported a positive perception of disease-specific but not generic HRQoL. Biological therapy improved HRQoL in CD patients, while UC patients in need of surgery or biological therapy experienced lower perceptions of HRQoL than the rest.

    Construction and validation of a web-based epidemiological database for inflammatory bowel diseases in Europe an EpiCom study2011In: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis, ISSN 1873-9946, E-ISSN 1876-4479, Vol. 5, no 4, p. 342-349Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: The EpiCom-study investigates a possible East-West-gradient in Europe in the incidence of IBD and the association with environmental factors. A secured web-based database is used to facilitate and centralize data registration.

    AIM: To construct and validate a web-based inception cohort database available in both English and Russian language.

    METHOD: The EpiCom database has been constructed in collaboration with all 34 participating centers. The database was translated into Russian using forward translation, patient questionnaires were translated by simplified forward-backward translation. Data insertion implies fulfillment of international diagnostic criteria, disease activity, medical therapy, quality of life, work productivity and activity impairment, outcome of pregnancy, surgery, cancer and death. Data is secured by the WinLog3 System, developed in cooperation with the Danish Data Protection Agency. Validation of the database has been performed in two consecutive rounds, each followed by corrections in accordance with comments.

    RESULTS: The EpiCom database fulfills the requirements of the participating countries' local data security agencies by being stored at a single location. The database was found overall to be "good" or "very good" by 81% of the participants after the second validation round and the general applicability of the database was evaluated as "good" or "very good" by 77%. In the inclusion period January 1st -December 31st 2010 1336 IBD patients have been included in the database.

    CONCLUSION: A user-friendly, tailor-made and secure web-based inception cohort database has been successfully constructed, facilitating remote data input. The incidence of IBD in 23 European countries can be found at www.epicom-ecco.eu.

    Natural Disease Course of Ulcerative Colitis During the First Five Years of Follow-up in a European Population-based Inception Cohort-An Epi-IBD Study2019In: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis, ISSN 1873-9946, E-ISSN 1876-4479, Vol. 13, no 2, p. 198-208Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background and Aims: Few population-based cohort studies have assessed the disease course of ulcerative colitis [UC] in the era of biological therapy and widespread use of immunomodulators. The aim of this study was to assess the 5-year outcome and disease course of patients with UC in the Epi-IBD cohort.

    Methods: In a prospective, population-based inception cohort of unselected patients with UC, patients were followed up from the time of their diagnosis, which included the collection of their clinical data, demographics, disease activity, medical therapy, and rates of surgery, cancers, and deaths. Associations between outcomes and multiple covariates were analysed by Cox regression analysis.

    Results: A total of 717 patients were included in the study. During follow-up, 43 [6%] patients underwent a colectomy and 163 [23%] patients were hospitalised. Of patients with limited colitis [distal to the left flexure], 90 [21%] progressed to extensive colitis. In addition, 92 [27%] patients with extensive colitis experienced a regression in disease extent, which was associated with a reduced risk of hospitalisation (hazard ratio [HR]: 0.5 95% CI: 0.3-0.8]. Overall, patients were treated similarly in both geographical regions; 80 [11%] patients needed biological therapy and 210 [29%] patients received immunomodulators. Treatment with immunomodulators was found to reduce the risk of hospitalisation [HR: 0.5 95% CI: 0.3-0.8].

    Conclusions: Although patients in this population-based cohort were treated more aggressively with immunomodulators and biological therapy than in cohorts from the previous two decades, their disease outcomes, including colectomy rates, were no different. However, treatment with immunomodulators was found to reduce the risk of hospitalisation.

    Occurrence of anaemia in the first year of inflammatory bowel disease in a European population-based inception cohort: An ECCO-EpiCom study2017In: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis, ISSN 1873-9946, E-ISSN 1876-4479, Vol. 11, no 10, p. 1213-1222Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background and aims: Anaemia is an important complication of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of anaemia and the practice of anaemia screening during the first year following diagnosis in a European prospective population-based inception cohort.

    Methods: Newly diagnosed IBD patients were included and followed prospectively for one year in 29 European and 1 Australian centre. Clinical data including demographics, medical therapy, surgery and blood samples were collected. Anaemia was defined according to the World Health Organization.

    Results: A total of 1,871 patients (CD: 686, 88%; UC: 1,021, 87%; IBDU 164. 81%) were included in the study. The prevalence of anaemia was higher in CD than in UC patients and overall, 49% of CD and 39% of UC patients had at least one instance of anaemia during the first 12 months after diagnosis. UC patients with more extensive disease and those from Eastern European countries, and CD patients with penetrating disease or colonic disease location, had higher risks of anaemia. CD and UC patients in need of none or only mild anti-inflammatory treatment had a lower risk of anaemia. In a significant proportion of patients, anaemia was not assessed until several months after diagnosis, and in almost half of all cases of anaemia a thorough work-up was not performed.

    Conclusions: Overall, 42% of patients had at least one instance of anaemia during the first year following diagnosis. Most patients were assessed for anaemia regularly; however, a full anaemia work-up was frequently neglected in this community setting.

    Smoking is Associated with an Increased Risk of Microscopic Colitis: Results From Two Large Prospective Cohort Studies of US Women2018In: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis, ISSN 1873-9946, E-ISSN 1876-4479, Vol. 12, no 5, p. 559-567Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: Long-term data on the influence of smoking on risk of microscopic colitis are limited. We therefore sought to examine and characterize the association between smoking and risk of incident microscopic colitis in two large prospective cohorts of women.

    Methods: We conducted a prospective study of 231,015 women enrolled in the Nurses' Health Study (NHS) and NHSII. Information regarding smoking, other lifestyle factors, and medications were collected biennially from 1976 to 2012 in NHS and 1989 to 2013 in NHSII. Incident cases of microscopic colitis were confirmed through physician medical record review. We used Cox proportional hazards modeling to examine the association between smoking and risk of microscopic colitis.

    Results: We documented 166 incident cases of microscopic colitis over 6,122,779 person-years of follow up. Compared to non-smokers, the multivariable-adjusted hazard ratio (HR) for microscopic colitis was 2.52 (95% CI 1.59 - 4.00) amongst current smokers and 1.54 (95% CI 1.09 - 2.17) amongst past smokers. The risk increased with higher pack-years of smoking (Ptrend = 0.001) and diminished following smoking cessation (Ptrend = 0.017). Current smoking appeared to be more strongly associated with risk of collagenous colitis (3.68; 95% CI 1.94 - 6.97) than lymphocytic colitis (HR 1.71; 95% CI 0.83 - 3.53).

    Conclusion: In two large prospective cohort studies, we observed an association between current smoking and risk of microscopic colitis. Risk of microscopic colitis appeared to increase with higher pack-years and diminish following smoking cessation. Future studies focused on characterizing the biologic mechanisms underlying these associations are warranted.

    Sick leave and disability pension in inflammatory bowel disease: A systematic review2014In: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis, ISSN 1873-9946, E-ISSN 1876-4479, Vol. 8, no 11, p. 1362-1377Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background & aims: Inflammatory bowel disease has considerable effects on work-related outcomes and leads to high societal costs due to sick leave and disability pension. The aims of this study were to systematically review evidence on work-related outcomes that are relevant to productivity losses and to evaluate whether medical or surgical interventions have a positive impact on patients work ability.

    Methods: A systematic literature search in PubMed was conducted in June 2013. Abstracts were screened by two independent reviewers, and full-text articles describing the frequency of work-related outcomes were retrieved. Two independent reviewers extracted data according to the PRISMA Statement for Reporting Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses. Findings were organized by study design (non-interventional/interventional). Non-interventional studies were structured according to whether they presented data in comparison to control groups or not and interventional studies were summarized according to type of intervention.

    Results: This review included 30 non-interventional (15 with comparison groups and 15 without comparison group) and 17 interventional studies (9 surgical and 8 medical). The majority of the studies reported a high burden of work:related outcomes among inflammatory bowel disease patients regardless of the methodology used. While biologic agents showed positive effect on work absenteeism and presenteeism in randomized clinical trials, the impact of surgical interventions needs further evaluation.

    Conclusions: Inflammatory bowel disease patients experience a high burden in work-related outcomes. Additional data on productivity losses and the long-term impact of interventions is needed to help inform decision-makers about treatment options and their benefits in reducing productivity losses in inflammatory bowel disease patients.

    Sick Leave and Disability Pension in Prevalent Patients With Crohn's Disease2018In: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis, ISSN 1873-9946, E-ISSN 1876-4479, Vol. 12, no 12, p. 1418-1428Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background and Aims: Crohn's disease may affect the ability to work and lead to permanent disability. We aimed to investigate work loss in prevalent patients.

    Methods: We identified patients with Crohn's disease and general population comparators matched by sex, birth year, healthcare region and education. We assessed days of sick leave and disability pension retrieved from the Swedish Social Insurance Agency and estimated the absolute and relative risk of receiving disability pension [minimum 25% work impairment].

    Results: In 2014, the 20638 Crohn's disease patients [median age 44 years] had more than twice as many mean lost workdays [disability pension: 44; sick leave: 19] as the 102038 comparators [disability pension: 20; sick leave: 8], mean difference 35 days [95% confidence interval 33-37]. However, the majority had no lost workdays [68% of patients and 85% of comparators]. The proportion of patients receiving disability pension was 15% (6.5% in the comparators, risk ratio 2.34 [2.25-2.43]) and was higher in all subgroups, especially in female patients [28% vs 13% in the comparators], in those with ≤9 years of education [41% vs 23%] and in ages 60-64 years [46% vs 25%]. The relative risk of disability pension within the patient cohort [adjusted for age, sex, region and education] was higher in patients with complicated disease behaviour, extraintestinal manifestations, need of surgery or treatment with biologics. The differences between patients and comparators remained when comparing other calendar years [2006-2013].

    Conclusion: Work loss was found in approximately one-third of patients. The mean number of lost workdays was twice as high as in the comparators.

    Clinical Features and HLA Association of 5-Aminosalicylate (5-ASA)-induced Nephrotoxicity in Inflammatory Bowel Disease2016In: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis, ISSN 1873-9946, E-ISSN 1876-4479, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 149-158Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background and Aims: Nephrotoxicity is a rare idiosyncratic reaction to 5-aminosalicylate (5-ASA) therapies. The aims of this study were to describe the clinical features of this complication and identify clinically useful genetic markers so that these drugs can be avoided or so that monitoring can be intensified in high-risk patients.

    Methods: Inflammatory bowel disease patients were recruited from 89 sites around the world. Inclusion criteria included normal renal function prior to commencing 5-ASA, >= 50% rise in creatinine any time after starting 5-ASA, and physician opinion implicating 5-ASA strong enough to justify drug withdrawal. An adjudication panel identified definite and probable cases from structured case report forms. A genome-wide association study was then undertaken with these cases and 4109 disease controls.

    Results: After adjudication, 151 cases of 5-ASA-induced nephrotoxicity were identified. Sixty-eight percent of cases were males, with nephrotoxicity occurring at a median age of 39.4 years (range 6-79 years). The median time for development of renal injury after commencing 5-ASA was 3.0 years (95% confidence interval [CI] 2.3-3.7). Only 30% of cases recovered completely after drug withdrawal, with 15 patients requiring permanent renal replacement therapy. A genome-wide association study identified a suggestive association in the HLA region (p = 1 x 10(-7)) with 5-ASA-induced nephrotoxicity. A sub-group analysis of patients who had a renal biopsy demonstrating interstitial nephritis (n = 55) significantly strengthened this association (p = 4 x 10(-9), odds ratio 3.1).

    Conclusions: This is the largest and most detailed study of 5-ASA-induced nephrotoxicity to date. It highlights the morbidity associated with this condition and identifies for the first time a significant genetic predisposition to drug-induced renal injury.

    Sequencing-based hematopoietic miRNA landscape reveals common and distinct features of autoimmune inflammatory phenotypes2019In: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis, ISSN 1873-9946, E-ISSN 1876-4479, Vol. 13, no Suppl. 1, p. S614-S614Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: MiRNAs represent a class of small non-coding RNAs which are involved in regulation of protein-coding gene expression. Being implicated in various processes such as development and regu-latory circuits of cells, miRNAs also play an important role in the etiology of a variety of diseases. Imbalance of the regulatory pro-cesses within immune system development and response may lead to disturbed production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and over-reactivity of the immune cells, thus causing relapsing inflamma-tion, a characteristic feature of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Recent studies of colonic miRNAs employed NGS for the distinction between CD, UC and healthy controls, or among different CD sub-types. However, NGS-based profiles of blood-circulating miRNAs have thus far not been investigated in the context of IBD together with other immune-mediated diseases, including ankylosing spon-dylitis, psoriasis, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis and sarcoidosis, as well as non-immune hemolytic-uremic syndrome.

    Methods: Study participants were recruited in Germany and Sweden, where peripheral blood samples (PAXgene) as well as phenotypical and clinical information (such as treatment status, dis-ease activity and location) was collected. Small RNA transcriptomes of 680 individuals (Figure 1) were sequenced using Illumina NGS platform. Small RNA-seq data preprocessing and quantification were performed using cutadapt and miraligner (ref. miRBase v22), respectively. Differential expression analysis (DESeq2) and correla-tion (Spearman) analysis have been performed to identify disease activity-, trait- and treatment-specific miRNA signatures. These sig-natures were then utilized in a machine-learning approach to build classification models for IBD diagnostics.

    Results: The results of multiple pairwise differential expression anal-yses among different immune-mediated inflammatory conditions and healthy controls revealed inflammation-specific as well and dis-ease-specific deregulation of miRNAs. Correlation analysis identified miRNAs positively and negatively correlated with IBD activity. The preliminary results of machine learning classifiers based on miRNA profiles showed that median Matthews correlation coefficient for all model types showed remarkable predictive performance estimated as being 1.00 (median over main diagnoses), as well as ranging from 0.68 to 0.76 (median over CD location) and from 0.69 to 0.77 (median over UC extent).

    Conclusions: Immune-mediated inflammatory diseases share com-mon and distinct differentially expressed miRNAs, which have a potential to be used in the diagnostics of IBD, including the evalua-tion of the disease activity.

    Abstract [en]

    Background and aims: The aetiology of Crohn's disease is poorly understood. By investigating twin pairs discordant for Crohn's disease we aimed to assess if the dysregulated barrier represents a cause or a consequence of inflammation and to evaluate the impact of genetic predisposition on barrier function.

    Methods: Ileal biopsies from 15 twin pairs discordant for Crohn's disease (monozygotic n=9, dizygotic n=6) and 10 external controls were mounted in Ussing chambers to assess paracellular permeability to51Chromium (Cr)-EDTA and trancellular passage to non-pathogenic E. coli K-12. Experiments were performed with and without provocation with acetylsalicylic acid. Immunofluorescence and ELISA were used to quantify the expression level of tight junction proteins.

    Results: Healthy co-twins and affected twins displayed increased 51Cr-EDTA permeability at 120 min both with Acetylsalicylic acid (p<0.001) and without (p<0.001) when compared to controls. A significant increase in 51Cr-EDTA flux was seen already at 20 minutes in healthy monozygotic co-twins compared to controls (p≤0.05) when stratified by zygosity, but not in healthy dizygotic co-twins. No difference in E. coli passage was observed between groups. Immunofluorescence of the tight junction proteins claudin-5 and tricellulin showed lower levels in healthy co-twins (p<0.05) and affected twins (p<0.05) compared to external controls, while ELISA only showed lower tricellulin in Crohn's disease twins (p<0.05).

    Conclusion: Our results suggest that barrier dysfunction is a primary defect in Crohn's disease, since changes were predominantly seen in healthy monozygotic co-twins. Passage of E. coli seems to be a consequence of inflammation rather than representing a primary defect.

    Microscopic colitis patients have increased frequencies of Ki67+proliferating and CD45RO+ active/memory CD8+ and CD4+8mucosal T cells2013In: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis, ISSN 1873-9946, E-ISSN 1876-4479, Vol. 7, no 9, p. 694-705Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Collagenous colitis (CC) and lymphocytic colitis (LC) are chronic inflammatory bowel disorders of unknown etiology. This study investigated phenotypic characteristics of the mucosal lymphocytes in CC and LC.

    Methods: Lamina propria and intraepithelial lymphocytes (LPLs, IELs) isolated from mucosal biopsies from CC (n = 7), LC (n = 6), as well as LC or CC patients in histopathological remission, (LC-HR) (n = 6) and CC-HR (n = 4) and non-inflamed controls (n = 10) were phenotypically characterized by four-color flow cytometry.

    Results: The proportions of CD8+ IELs were increased in CC and LC (p < 0.01) compared to controls. Increased proportions of CD45RO+CD8+ IELs and LPLs were observed in LC and even more in CC patients (p < 0.01). Both CC (p < 0.05) and LC patients had elevated proportions of CD4+8+ IELs and LPLs compared to controls. The proportions of CD45RO+ cells were increased in CD4+8+ IELs and LPLs (p < 0.05) in CC and LC patients compared to controls. Both CC (p < 0.05) and LC patients had higher proportions of Ki67+CD8+ IELs and LPLs compared to controls.

    In contrast, decreased proportions of CD4+ LPLs were observed in CC and LC as well as CD4+ IELs in LC compared to controls. Increased proportions of Ki67+CD4+ IELs and LPLs (p < 0.05) were observed in CC and LC patients. CC-HR but not LC-HR patients demonstrated normalized proportions of both IELs and LPLs compared to CC and LC patients respectively.

    Conclusion: LC and CC patients have differences in mucosal lymphocyte subsets, with increased proportions of Ki67+ and CD45RO+ CD8+ and CD4+8+ mucosal T cells.

    Microscopic colitis: current status, present and future challenges statements of the European microscopic colitis group2012In: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis, ISSN 1873-9946, E-ISSN 1876-4479, Vol. 6, no 9, p. 932-945Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Microscopic colitis (MC) is an inflammatory bowel disease presenting with chronic, non-bloody watery diarrhoea and few or no endoscopic abnormalities. The histological examination reveals mainly two subtypes of MC, lymphocytic or collagenous colitis. Despite the fact that the incidence in MC has been rising over the last decades, research has been sparse and our knowledge about MC remains limited. Specialists in the field have initiated the European Microscopic Colitis Group (EMCG) with the primary goal to create awareness on MC. The EMCG is furthermore a forum with the intention to promote clinical and basic research. In this article statements and comments are given that all members of the EMCG have considered being of importance for a better understanding of MC. The paper focuses on the newest updates in epidemiology, symptoms and diagnostic criteria, pathophysiology and highlights some unsolved problems. Moreover, a new treatment algorithm is proposed on the basis of new evidence from well-designed, randomized control trials.

    Smoking Status Influences Clinical Outcome in Collagenous Colitis2016In: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis, ISSN 1873-9946, E-ISSN 1876-4479, Vol. 10, no 4, p. 449-454Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: The relationship between clinical and histological parameters in collagenous colitis (CC) is poorly understood. Smoking is a risk factor for CC, whereas its impact on clinical activity and outcome is not well known.

    Methods: In a post hoc analysis of pooled data from two randomized controlled trials we assessed the association between demographic data (gender, age, smoking habits, family history of inflammatory bowel disease), clinical variables (duration of symptoms, mean number of stools/watery stools per day, abdominal pain, clinical remission) and histological data (thickness of the collagen band, inflammation of the lamina propria, total numbers of intraepithelial lymphocytes, degeneration). Moreover, we analysed the predictive value of baseline parameters for clinical outcome in a logistic regression model.

    Results: Pooled data were available from 202 patients with active CC, of whom 36% were current smokers, 29% former smokers and 35% non-smokers. Smoking status was associated with decreased ability to achieve clinical remission (current smokers vs non-smokers: odds ratio [OR] 0.31, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.10-0.98, p = 0.045; former smokers vs non-smokers: OR 0.19, 95% CI 0.05-0.73, p = 0.016). Current smokers had an increased mean number of watery stools at baseline compared with non-smokers (p = 0.051) and increased mean number of watery stools per se was associated with decreased likelihood of obtaining clinical remission (OR 0.63, 95% CI 0.47-0.86, p = 0.003). Patient characteristics and histology at baseline had no association with clinical parameters and no predictive value for clinical outcome.

    Conclusion: Smoking worsens clinical symptoms in CC and is associated with an increased number of watery stools and decreased likelihood of achieving clinical remission. There is no significant association between histology and clinical data.

    Surgical treatment in childhood-onset inflammatory bowel disease: A nationwide register-based study of 4695 incident patients in Sweden 2002-20142018In: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis, ISSN 1873-9946, E-ISSN 1876-4479, Vol. 12, no 2, p. 157-166Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background and Aims: The incidence of childhood-onset (<18 years) inflammatory bowel disease is increasing worldwide, and some studies suggest that it represents a more severe disease phenotype. Few nationwide, population-based studies have evaluated the surgical burden in patients with childhood-onset IBD, and whether the improved medical treatment has influenced the need for gastrointestinal surgery. The aim was to examine whether the surgical treatment at any age of patients with childhood-onset IBD has changed over time.

    Methods: In a nationwide cohort study we identified 4,695 children (<18 years) diagnosed with incident IBD in 2002-2014 through the Swedish Patient Register (ulcerative colitis: n=2,295; Crohn's disease: n=2,174; inflammatory bowel disease-unclassified: n=226). Abdominal (intestinal resections and colectomies) and perianal surgery were identified through the Swedish Patient Register. The cumulative incidences of surgeries were calculated using the Kaplan Meier method.

    Results: In the cohort, 44% were females and 56% males. The median age at inflammatory bowel disease diagnosis was 15 years and the maximum age at end of follow-up was 31 years. The three-year cumulative incidence of intestinal surgery was 5% in patients with ulcerative colitis and 7% in patients with Crohn's disease, and lower in children <6 years at inflammatory bowel disease diagnosis (3%) than in those aged 15-17 years at diagnosis (7%). Calendar period of inflammatory bowel disease diagnosis was not associated with risk of surgery.

    Conclusion: Over the last 13 years, the risk of surgery in childhood-onset inflammatory bowel disease has remained unchanged.
