Introduction Cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) is a functional gastrointestinal disorder (FGID) whose aetiology is poorly understood. It is characterised by acute episodes of vomiting and nausea followed by asymptomatic periods. Average age of symptom onset in adults is 22 years but average age of diagnosis is 31 years. This delay is probably because, until recently, CVS was considered to be a paediatric condition. Few studies have reported the prevalence in adults or risk factors for CVS. We exami...

SummaryBackground Ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD) are inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Evidence implicates disturbances of the gastrointestinal microbiota in their pathogenesis.

Methods MEDLINE, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Controlled Trials Register were searched (until November 2016). Eligible randomised controlled trials (RCTs) recruited adults with UC or CD, and compared probioti...

Background & Aims Symptoms compatible with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are common in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), but it is unclear whether this relates to occult IBD activity. We attempted to resolve this issue in a secondary care population by using a cross-sectional study design. Methods We analyzed Rome III IBS symptoms, disease activity indices, and psychological, somatization, and quality of life data from 378 consecutive, unselected adult patients with IBD seen in cl...

Summary Background Inflammatory bowel disease is associated with psychological comorbidity and impaired quality of life. Psychological comorbidity could affect the natural history of inflammatory bowel disease. Psychological therapies might therefore have beneficial effects on disease activity, mood, and quality of life in patients with inflammatory bowel disease. We did a systematic review and meta-analysis examining these issues. Methods In this systematic review and meta-analysis, we searched...
