IBD (Crohn's, Colitis) 'joins' cancer, inflammatory diseases in associated blood vessel growth

Snowmass, Co. (September 13, 2004) Over at least the last decade it has been recognized that the growth of new blood vessels is critical in the pathogenesis of cancer because it increases blood supply to malignant tissue. Relatively recently, a novel pathogenic role of angiogenesis has been established for such chronic inflammatory diseases as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and atherosclerosis....

Flagellation in Crohn disease

The intestinal mucosa is challenged with more bacterial antigens than any other tissue in the body. Previous work has indicated that inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) results from maladaptive immune responses to intestinal microbiota. However, identification of microbial antigens underlying such intestinal disorders remains difficult due to the diversity of microflora present in these tissues. Thr...

U of T researchers isolate gene for Crohn's disease

Researchers at the University of Toronto have isolated a gene that predisposes people to Crohn's disease....... "Isolating this gene is a critical step towards improved diagnosis of this disease and developing better therapies for Crohn's sufferers," says Katherine Siminovitch, a U of T professor with the Department of Medicine. She is also a senior scientist at the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Inst...
