Abstract: Background and Aims: Pouchitis, the most common complication after proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) for ulcerative colitis, has been attributed to altered composition of faecal flora. We investigated the rote of antimicrobial and antiglycan antibodies and polymorphisms in microbial pattern recognition receptor genes.
