In theory, the subsequent enteritis or colitis results from a dysregulated or inappropriate immune response to flora tolerated by healthy individuals.
For example, genetic polymorphisms in the NOD2 gene may increase the risk of developing exaggerated secretion of cytokines that promote Th1 and Th17 cells. Similarly, T cells in CD may be more sensitive to cytokines secreted by dendritic cells (such as IL-12 and IL-23) given the detection of polymorphisms of the IL-23 receptor expressed on T cells that determine the responsiveness of this receptor. In a similar manner, dendritic cells in UC likely sample and respond to bacterial antigens in a manner that leads to the excess secretion of other cytokines that would tend to promote a Th2-like response derived from the activity of a unique subset of T cells, the NKT cells.
Severe tenderness, fever, or tachycardia heralds fulminant disease. 2. Laboratory findings—Patients with active disease are generally anemic and often iron deficient.
