Collagenous gastritis: a rare disease with distinctive endoscopic  findings

A 31-year-old man was referred to our institution because of stomach abnormality detected by EGD during a health checkup. He was asymptomatic and without a medical history, history of allergies, or smoking or drinking habits. EGD revealed a characteristic diffusely nodular atrophy limited to the whole gastric body, where pseudopolyposis consisted of isolated normal mucosa (A, white arrowhead). Chromoendoscopy with indigo carmine clearly showed the atrophic border between the gastric body and the angle/antrum (A, black arrowheads).

CONCLUSIONS: Immunohistochemistry seems to be a promising option not only in clinical recognition, but also in the selection and monitoring of treatment effects. However, these methods have not yet recommended for routine clinical use. PMID: 33032462 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Boosting the sensitivity of in vitroβ-lactam allergy diagnostic tests. Chem Commun (Camb). 2020 Oct 14;56(80):11973-11976 Authors: Peña-Mendizabal E, Morais S, Maquieira Á Abstract The synthesis of structurally new haptens and the development of suitable antigens are essential for boosting the sensitivity of drug allergy diagnostic testing. Unprecedented structural antigens for benzylpenicillin and amoxicillin are characterised and evaluated in a cohort of 70 subjects with a turnkey solution based on consumer electronics.

CONCLUSIONS: Hence, it is important to work with patients and their families to identify and strengthen adaptive and coping behaviors. That is possible only through the synergistic working of a multidisciplinary team made up of experienced doctors, psychologists, and social workers while in contact with patient Associations.

Performance of endoscopic procedures is associated with a risk of infection from COVID-19. This risk can be reduced by the use of personal protective equipment (PPE). However, shortage of PPE has emerged as an important issue in managing the pandemic in both traditionally high and low-resource areas. A group of clinicians and researchers from thirteen countries representing low, middle, and high-income areas has developed recommendations for optimal utilization of PPE before, during, and after gastrointestinal endoscopy with particular reference to low-resource situations. We determined that there is limited flexibility wi...

Background: Weather patterns are well-known to affect human health and behavior and are often arbitrarily blamed for high no-show rates (NSRs). The NSR for outpatient gastrointestinal procedures ranges from 4% to 41% depending on the population and procedure performed. Identifying potential causes will allow for the optimization of endoscopy resource utilization. Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of a day of the year and weather conditions have on NSRs for outpatient endoscopic procedures at a safety-net hospital in Cleveland, Ohio, United States. Methods: A 12-month, retrospective cohort study...

Abstract Eosinophilic gastrointestinal disease (EGID) can be classified as eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) when the eosinophilia is limited to the esophagus or as eosinophilic gastritis (EG) if it is limited to the gastric tract, eosinophilic colitis (EC) if it is limited to the colon, and eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EGE) if the eosinophilia involves one or more parts of the gastrointestinal tract. EoE is by far the most common EGID. It is a well-defined chronic atopic disease due to a T helper type 2 (Th2) inflammation triggered often by food allergens. EoE diagnosis is done if an esophageal biopsy shows at lea...
