Colitis is a medical condition of inflammation of the large intestine, including the colon, caecum, and rectum.
microscopic colitis, ischemic colitis, segmental colitis associated with diverticula, radiation colitis, diversion colitis, eosinophilic colitis, and Behcet's colitis.
There is no exact cause of colitis. Certain risk factors such as colon infection, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis), ischemic colitis, allergic reactions, and microscopic colitis have been found to increase the risk of the onset of the condition.
The most common symptoms of colitis are totally depending on the types, including abdominal pain, cramping, diarrhea, with or without blood in the stool.
Conventionally, besides treating colitis with antibiotics, certain medications also are prescribed to improve the symptoms and quality of life of the patients, including anti-diarrheal medications.
On finding a potential plant that process anti-colitis activity researchers compared the effects of broccoli-derived nanoparticle (BDN) and SFN on three mouse colitis models.
According to the data collected from the experiment, orally given nanoparticles isolated from broccoli extracts protected mice against colitis by-mediating the activation of 5'-adenylic acid-activated protein kinase (AMPK) associated with cellular energy homeostasis.
In the immune analysis, BDN prevented the dendritic cells (DCs) to act as messengers between the innate and the adaptive immune systems in dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced colitis in C57BL/6 (B6) mice by targeting dendritic cells (DCs) activation and inducing DC tolerance.
