What is A Ulcerative Colitis Flare up?

Ulcerative colitis is a chronic, inflammatory bowel disease that causes inflammation in the digestive tract. It is a chronic disease of the large intestine, or colon, in which the lining of the colon becomes inflamed and develops tiny open sores, or ulcers, that produce pus and mucous. More and more research is linking ulcerative colitis, and IBD in general, with the shingles virus, as contributor for the severe inflammation an pain caused by the inflammation in the inner lining of the colon.

A cohort study of 108,604 patients has found that the risk of contracting shingles is greater in IBD patients than non-IBD patients. Research revealed those taking anti-tumor necrosis factor-alpha agents (TNF) were found to be particularly prone to the virus.

The cohort included 50 932 patients with Crohn’s disease, 56 403 patients with ulcerative colitis, and 1269 with unspecified IBD. The IBD cohort was found to be at an shingles risk, compared with non-IBD patients.
