  • Dense genotyping of immune-related loci identifies HLA variants associated with increased risk of collagenous colitis.

    • Collagenous colitis (CC) is a major cause of chronic non-bloody diarrhoea, particularly in the elderly female population. The aetiology of CC is unknown, and still poor is the understanding of its pathogenesis. This possibly involves dysregulated inflammation and immune-mediated reactions in genetically predisposed individuals, but the contribution of genetic factors to CC is underinvestigated. We systematically tested immune-related genes known to impact the risk of several autoimmune diseases for their potential CC-predisposing role.

    • Purpose The diagnosis microscopic colitis (MC) consisting of collagenous colitis (CC) and lymphocytic colitis (LC) relies on histological assessment of mucosal biopsies from the colon. The optimal biopsy strategy for reliable diagnosis of MC is controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the distribution of histopathological features of MC throughout the colon. Methods Mucosal biopsies from multiple colonic segments of patients with MC who participated in one of the three prospective European multicenter trials were analyzed. Histological slides were stained with hematoxylin-and-eosin, a connective tissue stain, and CD3 in selected cases. Results In total, 255 patients were included, 199 and 56 patients with CC and LC, respectively. Both groups exhibited a gradient with more pronounced inflammation in the lamina propria in the proximal colon compared with the distal colon. Similarly, the thickness of the subepithelial collagenous band in CC showed a gradient with higher values in the proximal colon. The mean number of intraepithelial lymphocytes was > 20 in all colonic segments in patients within both subgroups. Biopsies from 86 to 94% of individual segments were diagnostic, rectum excluded. Biopsies from non-diagnostic segments often showed features of another subgroup of MC. Conclusion Conclusively, although the severity of the histological changes in MC differed in the colonic mucosa, the minimum criteria required for the diagnosis were present in the random biopsies from the majority of segments. Thus, our findings show MC to be a pancolitis, rectum excluded, questioning previously proclaimed patchiness throughout the colon.

  • European guidelines on microscopic colitis : United European Gastroenterology (UEG) and European Microscopic Colitis Group (EMCG) statements and recommendations
  • 2020

    • Introduction: Microscopic colitis is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease characterised by normal or almost normal endoscopic appearance of the colon, chronic watery, non-bloody diarrhoea and distinct histological abnormalities, which identify three histological subtypes, the collagenous colitis, the lymphocytic colitis and the incomplete microscopic colitis. With ongoing uncertainties and new developments in the clinical management of microscopic colitis, there is a need for evidence-based guidelines to improve the medical care of patients suffering from this disorder.Methods: Guidelines were developed by members from the European Microscopic Colitis Group and United European Gastroenterology in accordance with the Appraisal of Guidelines for Research and Evaluation II instrument. Following a systematic literature review, the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation methodology was used to assess the certainty of the evidence. Statements and recommendations were developed by working groups consisting of gastroenterologists, pathologists and basic scientists, and voted upon using the Delphi method.Results: These guidelines provide information on epidemiology and risk factors of microscopic colitis, as well as evidence-based statements and recommendations on diagnostic criteria and treatment options, including oral budesonide, bile acid binders, immunomodulators and biologics. Recommendations on the clinical management of microscopic colitis are provided based on evidence, expert opinion and best clinical practice.Conclusion: These guidelines may support clinicians worldwide to improve the clinical management of patients with microscopic colitis.

  • Microscopic colitis: pathophysiology and clinical management

    • Microscopic colitis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the colon that frequently causes chronic watery diarrhoea that might be accompanied by abdominal pain, nocturnal diarrhoea, urgency, and faecal incontinence. These symptoms lead to poor quality of life and increased health-care costs. Diagnosis relies on histological examination of multiple biopsy samples from the colonic mucosa, which often show no or only few abnormalities on endoscopy. Two major histological subtypes can be distinguished-collagenous colitis and lymphocytic colitis-but incomplete and variant forms with fewer characteristic features have been reported. Here we summarise the latest evidence on epidemiology, pathogenesis, and risk factors, and discuss established and novel therapeutic options for clinical remission. Finally, we propose an updated treatment algorithm. Further prospective studies are needed to clarify the natural history of microscopic colitis, supported by validated criteria for the assessment of disease activity.

  • Smoking Status Influences Clinical Outcome in Collagenous Colitis
  • 2016
  • Ingår i: Journal of Crohn's & Colitis. - Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press. - 1873-9946 .- 1876-4479. ; 10:4, s. 449-454

    • Background: The relationship between clinical and histological parameters in collagenous colitis (CC) is poorly understood. Smoking is a risk factor for CC, whereas its impact on clinical activity and outcome is not well known.Methods: In a post hoc analysis of pooled data from two randomized controlled trials we assessed the association between demographic data (gender, age, smoking habits, family history of inflammatory bowel disease), clinical variables (duration of symptoms, mean number of stools/watery stools per day, abdominal pain, clinical remission) and histological data (thickness of the collagen band, inflammation of the lamina propria, total numbers of intraepithelial lymphocytes, degeneration). Moreover, we analysed the predictive value of baseline parameters for clinical outcome in a logistic regression model.Results: Pooled data were available from 202 patients with active CC, of whom 36% were current smokers, 29% former smokers and 35% non-smokers. Smoking status was associated with decreased ability to achieve clinical remission (current smokers vs non-smokers: odds ratio [OR] 0.31, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.10-0.98, p = 0.045; former smokers vs non-smokers: OR 0.19, 95% CI 0.05-0.73, p = 0.016). Current smokers had an increased mean number of watery stools at baseline compared with non-smokers (p = 0.051) and increased mean number of watery stools per se was associated with decreased likelihood of obtaining clinical remission (OR 0.63, 95% CI 0.47-0.86, p = 0.003). Patient characteristics and histology at baseline had no association with clinical parameters and no predictive value for clinical outcome.Conclusion: Smoking worsens clinical symptoms in CC and is associated with an increased number of watery stools and decreased likelihood of achieving clinical remission. There is no significant association between histology and clinical data.
