IBS and Chronic Constipation Journal Articles

 
 
  • Incidence and Risk Factors for IBS in Population-based Studies This study aimed to identify the incidence and risk factors for developing new onset irritable bowel syndrome in population-based cohorts who did not have prior gastrointestinal infection.
  • Mechanisms for Symptom Causation by FODMAP Subgroups This paper explores the mechanisms by which foods high in specific FODMAP subgroups cause symptoms. How might this information be useful for developing a more personalized IBS diet?
  • Early Discontinuation of Anti-TNF-alpha in Women With IBD Are there sex-specific differences in the overall and cause-specific drug persistence of anti-TNF-alpha therapy in patients with inflammatory bowel disease?
  • Efficacy of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation for IBS This systemic review examined the current evidence for the efficacy of fecal microbiota transplantation in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome.
  • Chemoprotection of Colorectal Cancer With Non-aspirin NSAIDs Do non-aspirin nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs offer protection against colorectal cancer? This study examined the chemoprotective effect of both COX-2 selective and nonselective NSAIDs.
  • Analytical Performance of Fecal Calprotectin Methods This study compared four automated methods of measuring fecal calprotectin, a noninvasive biomarker that can distinguish inflammatory bowel disease from irritable bowel syndrome.
  • Role of the Gut Microbiome in the Progression of NAFLD This study investigated the mechanisms by which altered gut microbiota impact the development and progression of NAFLD. Might microbiota-targeting therapies be beneficial?
  • Prevalence of Anxiety and Depression in Patients With IBS What is the prevalence of anxiety and depressive symptoms in IBS patients, and how do rates compare with healthy controls?
  • Ketamine Infusions for Chronic Pain This meta-analysis evaluated the persistent analgesic efficacy of IV ketamine infusions vs. placebo for various chronic pain syndromes. Do benefits wane over time, and are benefits dose-dependent?
  • Fecal Gluten Peptides to Monitor Children With Celiac Disease Is measurement of gluten immunogenic peptides in stool useful as a marker of gluten-free diet adherence in children newly diagnosed with celiac disease?
  • Glecaprevir/Pibrentasvir for Treatment of Chronic HCV The study evaluated the effectiveness and safety of glecaprevir/pibrentasvir under real-world conditions in adult patients with chronic HCV infection.
  • Metabolomic Profiles in IBS, UC, and Healthy Controls This study aimed to determine whether urinary metabolite profiles might be useful for differentiating IBS patients from healthy controls and IBD patients.
  • The Overlap of IBS and Nonceliac Gluten Sensitivity This review explores possible etiologies for nonceliac gluten sensitivity, as well as the complex relationship between NCGS and irritable bowel syndrome.
  • Dietary Fiber in the Era of Microbiome Science What do we know about the health benefits of dietary fiber and its impacts on gut microbiota?
  • Donor Features, Procedures and Outcomes in Fecal Transplant This comprehensive review examined donor characteristics and screening protocols for fecal microbiota transplantation, as well as FMT procedures and outcomes.
  • Crohn's Disease Treatment Update This article presents the American College of Gastroenterology's updated guidelines on managing Crohn's disease in adult patients.
  • An At-home Intestinal Screening Test for C. Difficile An at-home, self-administered sequencing-based clinical intestinal screening test may be useful for identifying the presence of C. difficile in high risk patients.
  • Bifidobacterium Lactis NCC2818 in Chronic Constipation This study investigated changes in physiological and clinical measures of gut function in patients with chronic constipation following consumption of a specific strain of Bifidobacterium lactis.
  • Implementation of a Low FODMAP Diet for Patients With IBS This review addresses many outstanding questions surrounding a low FODMAP diet for relief of IBS symptoms. Which patients will benefit? What's its long-term efficacy, acceptability, and impact on QoL?
  • Classifying Chronic Pain for ICD-11: Chronic Primary Pain Review the definition and etiologies of chronic primary pain, a newly proposed diagnosis in the ICD-11 classification for chronic pain, intended to describe a number of poorly understood conditions.
