    ..PCA above 100 U/mL are a sensitive and specific cut-off for workup of patients with ID prior to endoscopy. Serologic suspicion of AIG helps preselection of patients for endoscopic workup for ID. ..

    ..This study provides mechanistic evidence that molecular actions of 5-ASA and AZTP on intestinal epithelia are fundamental in the resolution of barrier dysfunction. ..
  3. Jimenez K, Gasche C. Management of Iron Deficiency Anaemia in Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Acta Haematol. 2019;142:30-36 pubmed publisher
    ..Herein, we discuss the screening, diagnosis, selection of therapy, and follow-up for iron deficiency anaemia in IBD. ..

    ..IHC further revealed that 5-ASA blocked β-catenin signaling via inhibition of PAK1/p-AKT. These data indicate that PAK1 contributes to initiation of intestinal carcinogenesis. ..

    ..Altogether these data demonstrate that PAK1 overexpression and activation in inflammation and colitis-associated cancer promote NF-κB activity via suppression of PPARγ in intestinal epithelial cells. ..

    ..These data indicate that inflammation-driven colon carcinogenesis in IL10 KO mice and IBD patients is associated with oxidative DNA damage and overt presence of DSB. Mol Cancer Res; 16(4); 634-42. ©2018 AACR. ..

    ..As mutations in exons 4e, 8, and 12 were only found in association with SNP5, this variant may have allowed selection pressure to arise. ..
