Research Field Of Interest :

  • Epidemiology research to establish the prevalence of the disease and Disease Surveillance
  • Basic research (pathophysiology, autoimmune mechanisms, inflammatory processes, genetics);
  • Clinical research (clinical spectrum of IBDs, association with other autoimmune diseases and complications);
  • Challenges of treatment of the disease (psychological impact of the diagnosis on family dynamics and on the acceptance of the treatment and prevention)

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.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome–like Symptoms in Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Clinical Remission Phase are Related to Gut Inflammation

Background: Symptoms consistent with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are common among IBD patients in remission phase, and clinicians have difficulties in interpreting such symptoms as an ongoing disease activity or a coexistent IBS. We investigated if the assessment of Fecal Calprotectin (FC) could be helpful in this regard like_symptoms_in_patientswith_inflammatory_bowel_disease_in_clinicalremission_phase_are_related_to_gut_inflammation

Serologic celiac disease in patients with inflammatory bowel disease

Background: There is an association of celiac disease (CD) with several gastrointestinal illnesses. We aimed to determine the prevalence of CD in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) to evaluate the value of the routine serological tests for CD in these patients.

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.

Endoscopic polypectomy resection of blue rubber bleb nevus lesions in small bowel

Background: Blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome (BRBNS) is a rare disorder characterized by cutaneous and gastrointestinal (GI) venous malformations. The treatment of BRBNS is primarily supportive and ablative. Ablative therapy involves endoscopic or surgical treatment of GI venous malformations. We describe a 20-year-old woman who had multiple venous malformations all over the GI tract as well as cutaneous lesions.

Is microscopic colitis a missed diagnosis in diarrhea-predominant Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

Background: There are controversies about the importance of biopsies of normal colon mucosa in the investigation of patients with diarrhea predominant irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). On the other hand, microscopic colitis may be missed based on normal colonoscopy and laboratory examination in this group of patients.
