  1. WHat are two Inflammatory Bowel diseases?
    What are the causese of theses (General)
    Crohns disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    • Inappropriate and persistent activation of the mucosal immune system, driven by presence of normal intraluminal flora
    • and Defects in epithelial barrier function
  2. Inflamatory Bowel disease
    Where is it most common?
    Location in the GI?
    These are common in developing areas and european decent

    • UC- primaraly in the Colon/ Rectum
    • CD- Any part of the GIT, but most commonly in the distal small intestine and colon.
  3. inflammatory bowel disease
    Is there a genetic component?
    What is the Immune response in these diseases?

    When is it hard to tell UC and CD apart?
    Yes, there is a genetic associated for both CD and UC

    You see abnormal T-cell response ( the prime culprit is CD4+ T-cells

    Hard when they are both limited to the colon.
  4. Inflammatory Diseases

    pANCA + in?
    Ab for polysaccharide of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (ASCA) in?
    see p ANCA more commonly in UC (75%)

    See ASCA in some CD patients
  5. Another name for Crohns disease is?

    Western nations

  15. Ulcerative Colitis
    Location of the infection in the Bowel?
    is it continous?
    What is it associated with systemically?

  18. Ulcerative Colitis
    Location of involvement?
    Does it skip?
    When it involves the entire colon it is called?
    What might you see?
