Factors Associated with Durable Response to Infliximab in Crohn's Disease 5 Years and Beyond: A Multicenter International Cohort
Fri, 19 Dec 2014 19:05:24 +0100 | Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
Conclusions:Young age at start of IFX and colonic CD are factors associated with a beneficial long-term use of IFX. After 5 years of IFX, there is still a 3% to 5% discontinuation rate annually. Several factors associated with a good initial response such as nonsmoker and shorter disease duration at IFX initiation do not seem associated with a longer term response.

Conclusions: Our results suggest that an intervention before the onset of puberty seems promising for long-term weight maintenance in overweight children. Thus, new concepts are needed to improve long-term treatment success in patients with lower success rates. (Source: Hormone Research in Paediatrics)

Effect of weight loss strategies on FGF21
Fri, 19 Dec 2014 12:00:00 +0100 | Society for Endocrinology
Weight loss by calorie restriction or Roux-en-Y Gastric bypass surgery (RYGB) is a cornerstone in the current treatment for obesity and diabetes. The anatomical alterations after RYGB and peri-operative starvation could affect endocrine fibroblast growth factors (FGFs)  in a direct manner. This is important as FGF19 and FGF21 have diverse hormone-like metabolic functions. In addition to FGF19 and FGF21,  the early effects of restrictive and metabolic weight loss strategies on (postprandial) bile salt has not been directly compared yet.
