  • Difficulties and possibilities with thiopurine therapy in inflammatory bowel disease-Proceedings of the first Thiopurine Task Force meeting
  • 2011

    • Background: Thiopurines, such as azathioprine and mercaptopurine, are of pivotal importance in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. Although these drugs have been used for several decades, still many questions remain unanswered. Aim: To provide an overview of clinically and scientifically challenging topics concerning thiopurine therapy in inflammatory bowel disease treatment. Methods: The first meeting of the Thiopurine Task Force Interest Group was held during the 2009 United European Gastroenterology Week in London (GASTRO2009). The topics of this meeting were of particular clinical and scientific interest. Additional literature was identified by performing a Pubmed search using the search terms inflammatory bowel disease, azathioprine, 6-mercaptopurine and thioguanine. Results: The following topics were discussed: therapeutic drug monitoring; the synergy of thiopurines with aminosalicylates and allopurinol; serious adverse events such as opportunistic infections, hepatotoxicity, carcinogenicity and pancreatitis; prolongation of thiopurines during clinical remission; indications for thiopurines in the postoperative setting; and the potential use of thioguanine. Specific interesting and clinically relevant topics for potential future research are provided. Conclusions: Thiopurines remain central to inflammatory bowel disease treatment, although future studies are required to substantiate a more personalised medicine approach to their use.

  • Development of an index to define overall disease severity in IBD
  • 2018
  • Ingår i: Gut. - London, United Kingdom : BMJ Publishing Group Ltd. - 0017-5749 .- 1468-3288. ; 67:2, s. 244-254

    • Background and aim: Disease activity for Crohn's disease (CD) and UC is typically defined based on symptoms at a moment in time, and ignores the long-term burden of disease. The aims of this study were to select the attributes determining overall disease severity, to rank the importance of and to score these individual attributes for both CD and UC.Methods: Using a modified Delphi panel, 14 members of the International Organization for the Study of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IOIBD) selected the most important attributes related to IBD. Eighteen IOIBD members then completed a statistical exercise (conjoint analysis) to create a relative ranking of these attributes. Adjusted utilities were developed by creating proportions for each level within an attribute.Results: For CD, 15.8% of overall disease severity was attributed to the presence of mucosal lesions, 10.9% to history of a fistula, 9.7% to history of abscess and 7.4% to history of intestinal resection. For UC, 18.1% of overall disease severity was attributed to mucosal lesions, followed by 14.0% for impact on daily activities, 11.2% C reactive protein and 10.1% for prior experience with biologics. Overall disease severity indices were created on a 100-point scale by applying each attribute's average importance to the adjusted utilities.Conclusions: Based on specialist opinion, overall CD severity was associated more with intestinal damage, in contrast to overall UC disease severity, which was more dependent on symptoms and impact on daily life. Once validated, disease severity indices may provide a useful tool for consistent assessment of overall disease severity in patients with IBD.
