Background Crohn’s disease (CD) triggers are incompletely understood and the incidence of the disease has been increasing. Aims The aims of this study were to describe the trends in the clinical, endoscopic, histological, and laboratory characteristics of pediatric CD during the last decade and to describe the seasonal variation of disease present...
Article
Background Few risk factors are associated with the risk of relapses of Crohn’s disease in children. Aims The aims of this retrospective cohort study were to describe the rate of relapses in children with Crohn’s disease, its evolution over the past decade and to determine risk factors associated with relapse. Methods Patients under 18 years old...
Article
Background The natural evolution of Crohn’s disease is incompletely understood in the pediatric population. Data on factors influencing time-to-remission are very limited in the literature. Aims The aim of this retrospective cohort study was to describe the time to clinical remission in children with Crohn’s disease as well as changes over the pas...

Article
Background Monotherapy with infliximab (IFX) could be as efficient as combotherapy with immunomodulators in the treatment and maintenance of remission for children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) if a proactive therapeutic drug monitoring strategy is adequately performed. This strategy may allow optimization of blood levels of IFX in order to...
Article
Objective: There is currently little knowledge on factors associated with the relapse of Crohn's disease (CD) in children. The aims of this study were to describe the risk factors associated with relapse in pediatric CD and the changes in the relapse rate over the past decade. Design: Patients aged under 18 years old and diagnosed between 2009 a...

The study i...

Background: Low vitamin D level is associated with a higher risk and a more severe course of Crohn’s disease (CD). Varying doses of vitamin D can rapidly alter the serum levels of 25 hydroxy-vitamin D (25OHD). No study specifically addressed whether a supplementation of 25OHD can modulate its long-term level and the relapse rate of CD in children....
