Chronic inflammatory diseases are associated with a persistent and enhanced response to environmental antigens. As an adaptive response to this exaggerated immune state, affected tissue typically develops tertiary lymphoid organs. Studies of Crohn disease (CD), a chronic inflammatory disease of the intestinal tract, report tertiary lymphoid organs present within the mucosal wall, along with other lymphatic diseases, such as lymphangiogenesis and obstructed lymphatic vessels. These observations s...

Abnormalities in mesenteric adipose tissue (MAT) have long been recognized; however, the functional changes in the mesenteric adipocytes as well as the underlying mechanisms are not entirely clear. The aim of this study was to analyze the function and morphology of the MAT in patients with Crohn's disease (CD) and the underlying mechanism.The MAT specimens were obtained from areas adjacent to the intestinal wall in patients with CD (n = 33) and without CD (control, n = 23) who underwent intestin...

Aim Mesenteric hypertrophy has been recognized as an indicator of the complicated course of Crohn's disease. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the visceral fat area (VFA) is associated with postoperative clinical and endoscopic recurrence. Method Computed tomography was used to measure the subcutaneous fat area and VFA, and the mesenteric fat index (MFI) was defined as the ratio of the VFA to the subcutaneous fat area. Associations between body mass index, subcutaneous fat area, V...

Epidemiological studies show that both the incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and the proportion of people with obesity and/or obesity-associated metabolic syndrome markedly increased in developed countries during the past half century. Obesity is also associated with the development of more active IBD and requirement for hospitalization and with a decrease in the time span between diagnosis and surgery. Patients with IBD, especially Crohn’s disease, present fat-wrapping or “creeping-...

Abstract Aims To observe the effect of cigarette smoke (CS) on the small bowel and colon in mice and to attempt to explain the potential mechanisms that account for these effects. Methods Male BALB/c mice age 6–8 weeks were randomly divided into a CS group and a control group (n = 10 per group). CS mice were exposed to CS (five cigarettes each time, four times a day for 5 days a week using Hamburg II smoking machine and CS was diluted with air at a ratio of 1:6) for 10 weeks, and control mice we...

Summary Background & aims Mesenteric adipose tissue hypertrophy is a hallmark of Crohn's disease and can express various adipokines. Exclusive enteral nutrition could effectively induce remission in Crohn's disease with mechanisms largely unknown. We investigated whether exclusive enteral nutrition could modify mesenteric fat in patients with active Crohn's disease. Methods Sixteen patients who underwent resection for ileum Crohn's disease were studied. As a control group, eight patients without...

In vitro studies have revealed that acute increases in transmural pressure increase lymphatic vessel contractile function. However, adaptive responses to prolonged changes in transmural pressure in vivo have not been reported. Therefore, we developed a novel bovine mesenteric lymphatic partial constriction model to test the hypothesis that lymphatic vessels exposed to higher transmural pressures adapt functionally to become stronger pumps than vessels exposed to lower transmural pressures. Postn...

BACKGROUND: The structures of the mesentery including adipose tissue, nerves, and lymphatics play an important role in the pathogenesis and disease progression of Crohn's disease (CD). Conventional surgical resection for CD usually does not involve resecting the mesentery en bloc with the specimen. This contrasts with complete mesocolic excision (CME) in colorectal cancer, which involves radical resection of the mesentery. Preliminary evidence from smaller studies suggests that applying the prin...

BACKGROUND: Crohn's disease (CD) is a multifactorial disease characterized by chronic intestinal inflammation. The increased visceral adiposity near the affected intestinal area, of which mesenteric adipose tissue (MAT) is the main component, is a feature of CD. Both protective and pathological roles have been attributed to this disease-associated tissue in CD. To understand the contribution of MAT to CD pathophysiology, a molecular and cellular signature of disease-associated MAT in CD patients...

Background – Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is characterised by both acute and chronic phase inflammation of the gastro-intestinal (GI) tract that affect a large and growing number of people worldwide with little to no effective treatments. This is in part due to the lack of understanding of the disease pathogenesis and also the currently poorly described involvement of other systems such as the lymphatics. During DSS induced colitis, mice also develop a severe inflammation of terminal ileum w...

Hepatocellular cancer (HCC) is a lethal malignancy with poor prognosis and easy recurrence. There are few agents with minor toxic side effects that can be used for treatment of HCC. Evodiamine (Evo), one of the major bioactive components derived from fructus Evodiae, has long been shown to exert anti-hepatocellular carcinoma activity by suppressing activation of nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK). In addition, in the Nucleotide-Binding Oligomerization Domain 1 ...
