Background: Treatment targets for ulcerative colitis are evolving towards achievement of endoscopic improvement and remission in addition to symptom resolution. It remains to be accurately quantified what proportion of patients with symptom resolution have residual endoscopic activity that might warrant treatment modification. Aim: To quantify the prevalence of endoscopic improvement and remission amongst ulcerative colitis patients with various permutations of patient-reported outcomes. Methods...

Background: The test characteristics of blood urea concentration in the identification of upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) or high-risk endoscopic lesions have not been clearly determined. This study aimed to elucidate if urea independently correlates with the presence of positive endoscopic findings in cases of presumed UGIB and understand the diagnostic value of this parameter when assessing a patient with potential UGIB. Methods: A retrospective cohort study was conducted at Hamilton He...

Background & Aims Previous or current infection with Helicobacter pylori (exposure) has been reported to protect against eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), perhaps owing to H pylori–induced immunomodulation. However, findings vary. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of comparative studies to define the association between H pylori exposure and EoE more clearly. Methods We searched 4 large databases to identify comparative clinical studies that included sufficient detail to determine...

BACKGROUND: Accumulating data support a protective role of Helicobacter pylori against inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), which might be mediated by strain-specific constituents, specifically cagA expression. AIM: To perform a systematic review and meta-analysis to more clearly define the association between CagA seropositivity and IBD. METHODS: We identified comparative studies that included sufficient detail to determine the odds or risk of IBD, Crohn's disease (CD) or ulcerative colitis (UC) ...

Background and Aims: Patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have high rates of psychiatric comorbidities, but it is not clear whether those with comorbidities are at higher risk of poor outcomes. We aimed to determine whether patients with IBD who have co-existing anxiety and/or depression are more likely to have poor IBD-related outcomes compared with IBD patients without anxiety and/or depression. Methods: This was a prospective longitudinal follow-up study in Ontario, Canada, from 200...
