Evidence for second line therapy in patients with microscopic colitis (MC) failing budesonide is scarce, although anti-tumor necrosing factors (anti-TNFs), methotrexate and azathioprine have been repo...
Microscopic colitis is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the colon primarily affecting postmenopausal women. However, the relationship between hormonal determinants, including reproductive and menopa...
Microscopic colitis (MC) has been described as 1 pattern of injury in immune checkpoint inhibitor (ICPI)-induced colitis. The main objective of this study was to characterize ICPI-induced MC by explor...
The risk of drowning is reported to be 15-19 times greater in people with epilepsy compared to the general population. Despite this disproportionate burden, there is limited data about the circumstanc...
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 as...
Microscopic colitis is a common cause of watery diarrhea, particularly in the elderly. Although the incidence is comparable to ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, the etiology is unkno...
The goal of this study is to establish a prospective observational cohort of adult patients with microscopic colitis and collect clinical information and specimens over the course of their...
Subjects must be 18 years old and older, have diarrhea and microscopic colitis. Pregnant or nursing females are excluded. They can't have other untreated diarrheal conditions. Subjects w...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy of budesonide for the treatment of active incomplete microscopic colitis.
Microscopic colitis (MC) is a disease with chronic inflammation of the colon that is mostly diagnosed in middle-aged or elderly women. Patients suffer from chronic watery diarrhoea, abdomi...
A subtype of MICROSCOPIC COLITIS, characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. Microscopic examination of biopsy samples taken from the COLON show larger-than-normal band of subepithelial COLLAGEN.
A subtype of MICROSCOPIC COLITIS, characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. Microscopic examination of biopsy samples taken from the COLON show infiltration of LYMPHOCYTES in the superficial EPITHELIUM and the underlying connective tissue (lamina propria).
A condition characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. This syndrome was first described in 1980 by Read and associates. Subtypes include COLLAGENOUS COLITIS and LYMPHOCYTIC COLITIS. Both have similar clinical symptoms and are distinguishable only by histology.
The non-susceptibility to infection of a large group of individuals in a population. A variety of factors can be responsible for herd immunity and this gives rise to the different definitions used in the literature. Most commonly, herd immunity refers to the case when, if most of the population is immune, infection of a single individual will not cause an epidemic. Also, in such immunized populations, susceptible individuals are not likely to become infected. Herd immunity can also refer to the case when unprotected individuals fail to contract a disease because the infecting organism has been banished from the population.
Ongoing scrutiny of a population (general population, study population, target population, etc.), generally using methods distinguished by their practicability, uniformity, and frequently their rapidity, rather than by complete accuracy.
