Highlights in Gastroenterology

Predictors of sustained binge drinking

As reported in Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research, sustained binge drinkers have an earlier onset, drink monthly in secondary school, binged in their 20s, exhibit impulsivity and novelty-seeking, and have depressive symptoms during adolescence compared to those who stop binge drinking.

Infliximab is effective in corticosteroid-refractory ulcerative colitis

As reported in the Journal of Crohn’s & Colitis, treatment of corticosteroid-refractory ulcerative colitis patients with 3 doses of infliximab (n=113) resulted in short- (3 months) and long-term (12 months) colectomy rates of 18.6% and 25.6%, respectively. The RR of colectomy in patients with an elevated CRP and severe endoscopic lesions was 2.15 and 5.13, respectively.

Increased MMP-9 expression associated with poor prognosis in CRC

As reported in the World Journal of Surgical Oncology, the expression of MMP-9 in colon cancer tissues was increased compared to distal normal mucosa (69.1% vs. 2.9%). Increased MMP-9 expression was associated with lymph node metastasis, Duke stage, and decreased survival.
