2006 News in IBD Myenteric plexitis and prediction of post- operative relapse in CD Colorectal cancer in IBD MMX mesalamine Immunosuppressors and biotherapies
Enteric nervous system and CD Nerve fiber hypertrophy and hyperplasia Inflammatory infiltrates in the vicinity of ganglia and nerve bundles (plexitis) Increased number of myenteric ganglia Perineural inflammation in otherwise uninflamed resection margins Highly organized integrative system in the wall of the gastro-intestinal tract Submucosal plexus Myenteric plexus Previous observations in CD
Role of myenteric plexitis of the proximal section margin in endoscopic recurrence P=0.008 (n=15) (n=17)(n=27)(n=32) P= % 59% 93% 75% months12 months No plexitisPlexitis % Endoscopic recurrence Plexitis : presence of one or more inflammatory cells adjacent to or within an enteric ganglion or nerve bundle Ferrante M et al. Gastroenterology 2006; 130:1595–1606
Correlation between the severity of myenteric plexitis in the proximal resection margin (pl0 – pI3) and the severity of postoperative endoscopic recurrence (i0–4) The surface of the circles represents the number of cases. Ferrante M et al. Gastroenterology 2006; 130:1595–1606 Endoscopic recurrence at 3 months Endoscopic recurrence at 12 months

Thirty-Year Analysis of a Colonoscopic Surveillance Program for Neoplasia in UC Rutter MD et al. Gastroenterology 2006; 130: N=600, 2627 colonoscopy, 5932 patient-yrs of FU 8 biopsy specimens per colonoscopy (median) Compliance to surveillance colonoscopy : 94.3% Neoplasia 12.3%, 30 CRCs Cumulative incidence of CRC – 2.5 % at 20yrs – 7.6% at 30yrs – 10.8% at 40 yrs 5-yr survival rate : 73% 16 of 30 CRCs were interval cancers

Protective Factors Associated With Reduced CRC in Chronic Ulcerative Colitis Evidence for Chemoprevention In a pooled analysis of 334 CRC cases among patients with chronic UC, regular use of 5-ASA reduced the risk of CRC by approximately 50% (P <.05) A recent case-control study suggested that 5-ASA may be chemopreventive in Crohn's disease as well Velayos FS et al. Am J Gastroenterol 2005;100: Siegel CA et al. IBD 2006;12:491-6.
MMX mesalamine a novel formulation of 5-ASA Combines a gastro-resistant polymer film and MMX Multi Matrix System technology to delay and extend drug delivery throughout the entire colon.
Once-Daily High Concentration MMX Mesalamine in active mild or moderate, left-sided or extensive UC Kamm M et al. Gastroenterology 2007; in press Percentage of patients in clinical and endoscopic remission at W8 (Intent-to-Treat Population, n = 341). **P <.01; ***P <.001.
