Using EPIMAD Cohort (1988‐2006), among 841 incident IBD patients, 139 (17%) underwent intestinal surgery, including...
The Inflammatory Bowel Disease Disability Index (IBD‐DI) has recently been developed for patients with Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC).
To assess the severity of disability and associated factors using the IBD‐DI, and review the validity of the IBD‐DI as a tool.
Systematic review of cross‐sectional studies. Patients included had UC or CD and were classified...
Inflammatory bowel disease and periodontitis are both described as a disproportionate mucosal inflammatory response to a microbial environment in susceptible patients. Moreover, these two conditions share major environmental and lifestyle‐related risk factors.

Le recours aux médecines non conventionnelles (MNC) semble augmenter, surtout chez les patients ayant une maladie chronique. L’objectif de notre étude était d’estimer la fréquence du recours aux MNC au cours des maladies inflammatoires du tube digestif (MICI) pédiatriques. Les objectifs secondaires étaient de préciser les MNC les plus utilisées, étudier les facteurs favorisants et les raisons de leur...
BackgroundA better knowledge of the natural history of disabling chronic diseases is essential to improve patient management, evaluate the impact of treatment strategies and provide predictors for disabling disease and comprehensive information for patients.
AimTo summarise our current knowledge issued from population‐based studies of the natural history of ulcerative colitis (UC) in children.
BackgroundInflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) typically affect young patients during the reproductive years, and reproductive issues are of key concern to them.
