Short disease duration, worsening IBD linked after liver transplantation

from Healio

Liver transplant recipients with IBD are more likely to experience worsening disease posttransplant with shorter disease duration, according to data presented at Digestive Disease Week. Researchers performed a retrospective chart analysis of 924 patients who underwent liver transplantation between 1998 and 2012. The cohort included 45 patients with posttransplant IBD, including 38 with previous IBD and seven who developed de novo IBD after the procedure. IBD severity was determined according to symptoms, complications, hospitalizations because of flares and use of steroids or immunosuppressive medications. more
