Antioxidant Effects of Methanol Extract of Dracocephalum kotschyi in Acetic Acid Induced Rat Colitis Model

Background: There is a worldwide trend towards substitute synthetic antioxidants with natural alternatives to treat inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) such as ulcerative colitis (UC). This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of Dracocephalum kotschyi extract on tissue injury and oxidative stress in an acetic-acid induced colitis model.

Sleep quality and associated factors in Iranian inflammatory bowel disease patients

Background: Sleep is essential in maintaining health and quality of life. Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients suffer from poor sleep quality. This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of sleep disturbances in Iranian IBD patients as well as the variables which can be attributed to the quality of sleep in IBD patients.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease Registry and Monitoring: Feasibility Study and Application (Isfahan Inflammatory Bowel Disease Surveillance Project)

Background: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) incidence has been increased in Iran as a developing country. Surveillance is a standard method for accessing valid data about disease epidemiology to make relevant decisions for disease control, prevention, and management. We designed Isfahan IBD Surveillance Project (IISP) to make a surveillance system in this area.

Establishment and development of the first biobank of inflammatory bowel disease, suspected to primary immunodeficiency diseases in Iran

background: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) might be an immunodeficiency rather than an excessive inflammatory reaction. IBD, suspected to primary immunodeficiency diseases biobank (IBDSPIDB) as a resource for researches can help improve the prevention, diagnosis, and illness treatment and the health promotion throughout the society. Therefore, we launched the biobank of IBDSPID for the first time in Iran.

Relationship between articular and nonarticular manifestations in inflammatory bowel Diseases

Background: Musculoskeletal manifestations (MSM) of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) are usually the most frequent extraintestinal manifestations. However, they are not paid enough attention during regular office visits. This cross‑sectional study aimed to draw a clinical picture of MSM and their relationships with other findings in patients with IBD.

Setting up the First Registry for Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Suspected to Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases in Iran

Background: inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has been considered a hyperinflammatory state due to disturbed interactions between the immune system and the commensal bacterial flora of the gut and suggesting IBD asa primary immunodeficiencies (PID). Therefore a registry launched about IBD, suspected to PID (IBDSPID) for the first time in Iran to raise awareness about this disease, to identify its risk factors, to early diagnosis and treatment.

Pulmonary function tests in ulcerative colitis

Background: Pulmonary impairment in patients suffering ulcerative colitis (UC) has been suggested by several investigators using standard pulmonary function tests (PFTs). This changes in pulmonary function associated with minimal respiratory symptoms have been documented, especially in patients with active disease. The aim of this prospective study was to determine airway resistance and lung volumes in patients with UC who have no respiratory symptoms in comparisons to a healthy control group.

Linguistic Validation of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire-Short Form (IBDQ-9) in Iranian Population

Background: Quality of life is significantly reduced in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). As there was no specific instrument for assessment of quality of life of Iranian IBD patients, we aimed to linguistically validate the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire-Short Form (IBDQ-9) in Iranian IBD patients.
