If you’re Hiroshi, Masaki, Yoshitaka, and a bunch of others from Japan who completed some research that was published in February of 2013…I’m pretty sure that you’re answer is going to be a big fat, “YES! Life events can indeed cause/induce colitis flares”. So once again, I was spending time reading through PubMed and another […]
science and research into the ulcerative colitis, or gastrointestinal world.
Hey, I hope you are all doing well. I’m actually writing this post in a bit of a hurry as I’m hitting the road tomorrow and heading back to the US, but I wanted to make sure to get this posted before taking off in the morning. Earlier tonight I was doing some research on […]
There is a fascinating scientific study I think you’ll enjoy. WAY MORE interesting than Kate and Will’s new royal baby, the Kardashians(when are they going to be over with), President Morsi’s troubles, and all of the other news that’s out there. The news makes you dumber, this will make you smarter, for sure! You don’t […]
What up Colitis Folks! The time has come, we need to get down to some basics with our Immune System. Epithelial Surfaces What a strange looking/sounding set of words. Almost sounds like a part of an insect’s antennae right? Truth is, we all have these things, and a crapload of them. Even if you don’t […]
Participants must meet certain criteria and there is a screening process for fecal donors. Patients may not be in remission, on biologic therapy, or be using probiotics.
WHAT UP UC’ERS: Earlier today, I noticed that a longtime writer of the website named Angie, posted a story where she mentioned some eye problems she’s dealing with. And she wanted to know if this type of thing could be related to her ulcerative colitis. And of course there’s a never ending list of website […]
FOR ANYBODY WHO ALREADY KNOWS about “Helminthic Therapy”, I’m guessing your first thoughts were somewhere along the lines of, “Oh HELL NO!”. Could anybody blame you? Of course not. For crying out loud helminths are little parasitic worms. And who wants to be messing with those right? Disgusting, nasty, full on ridiculous…well maybe. But the […]
Have YOU visited PubMed.gov before? If your answer is no, or even if it’s yes, I’d highly encourage you to continue reading the quick and easy steps below for using PubMed to find UC articles. This is one of those posts I should have written ages ago. So my apologies for that, but the time […]
Dear UC’ers of the world and all other concerned family/friends, I received an email a few days ago from one of you asking what the heck was going on with the SCD study that is taking place right now at Rush Medical Center near Chicago, IL. Crazy how times flies, but I originally posted on […]
Hey UC’ers, What’s happening! It’s another end of the week, and I thought it would be great to do a little re-visit on an old topic that is making the headlines once again. That’s right, the good old “Hygiene Hypothesis”. As you might have guessed, it is pretty controversial like most “new” ideas in the […]
