Highlights in Gastroenterology

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.

SCCA-IgM predicts survival in HCC patients

As reported in the Journal of Gastroenterology & Hepatology, SCCA-IgM levels are elevated in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) compared to patients with cirrhosis and healthy controls. Not only does the SCCA-IgM level predict overall and progression-free survival in HCC patients, but the sensitivity of SCCA-IgM in patients with HCC was 2-fold greater than AFP. A decline in SCCA-IgM levels was shown to be associated with response to treatment.

SIRT3 expression improves prognosis in gastric cancer

As reported in the World Journal of Surgery, SIRT3 expression improves the prognosis in patients with gastric cancer (n=221). Specifically, the 5-year OS was 51.2% and 39.1% in patients who do and do not express SIRT3, respectively. The 5-year DFS was 49.6% and 38.0% in patients who do and do not express SIRT3, respectively. Patients who do not express SIRT3 are characterized by increased poor cellular differentiation, increased diffuse-type Lauren’s histology, and increases scirrhous-type stromal reactions, suggesting the SIRT3 functions as a tumor suppressor.
