Crohn´s disease (CD) is often complicated by the appearance of intestinal stenosis (B2 behaviour) or fistulas (B3 behaviour), and the factors determining the pattern of disease and the etiology of these lesions, both associated with fibrosis and requiring surgery, are poorly defined. Our aim has been to detect transcriptomic alterations in intestinal tissues affected by stenosis or fistulas, and have centred our attention in genes affecting vessel formation and function as potential contributors to these lesions.
We conducted a small RNA sequencing profiling on ileal surgical resections from CD patients with B2 (n=10) or B3 (n=10) behaviour. We obtained a sample from affected tissue and the paired non-affected ileum from each patient.
Fig1. Expression of pro-angiogenic miRNAs (A) and of genes associated with vascular regulation (B) in tissues from stenotic (B2) and penetrating (B3) lesions of CD patients. Data represent normalized counts of each RNA and are expressed as mean±SEM (A) or mean (B). Data in (C) correspond to Pearson’s R. Significant differences vs corresponding non-affected tissue are represented by *P<0.05 (paired t-test) and #P<0.05 (ANOVA+Tukey test)
