The Effect of Gastric Helicobacter pylori Colonization on Nasal Functions.

The Effect of Gastric Helicobacter pylori Colonization on Nasal Functions. Ear Nose Throat J. 2019 Apr 24;:145561319840825 Authors: Kumral TL, Gökden Y, Saltürk Z, Berkiten G, Yıldırım G, Ataç E, Tutar B, Uyar Y Abstract The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of gastric Helicobacter pylori colonization on nasal functions. The study enrolled patients (n = 100) who underwent endoscopy for gastroesophageal reflux disease. Patients with laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) were identified by Reflux Symptom Index (RSI) and Reflux Finding Score (RFS). Patients were divided into 2 groups: LPR (+) (n = 64) H pylori (+), RSI> 13, RFS> 7; LPR (-) (n = 36) H pylori (+), RSI

Abstract Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are widely used for acid suppression in the treatment and prevention of many conditions including gastroesophageal reflux disease, gastric and duodenal ulcers, erosive esophagitis, H. pylori infection, and pathological hypersecretory conditions. Most PPIs are metabolized primarily by CYP2C19 into inactive metabolites, and CYP2C19 genotype has been linked to PPI exposure, efficacy, and adverse effects. We summarize the evidence from the literature and provide therapeutic recommendations for PPI prescribing based on CYP2C19 genotype (updates at The potential b...

lo FF Abstract Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a bacterium that infects more than a half of world's population. Although it is mainly related to the development of gastroduodenal diseases, several studies have shown that such infection may also influence the development and severity of various extragastric diseases. According to the current evidence, whereas this bacterium is a risk factor for some of these manifestations, it might play a protective role in other pathological conditions. In that context, when considered the gastrointestinal tract, H. pylori positivity have been related to Inflammatory Bowel Dis...

Methods We conducted a hospital-based, retrospective cross-sectional study of consecutive outpatients ≥65 years old at the Department of Gastroenterology, Juntendo Tokyo Koto Geriatric Medical Center from 2017 to 2019. Patients were included in the study if all of the following information was available from their medical records: patient's profile, the evaluation of osteoporos...

Functional dyspepsia (FD) is a common condition, loosely defined by some physicians as a stomach ache without a clear cause. More specifically, it is characterized by the feeling of fullness during or after a meal, or a burning sensation in the mid-upper abdomen, just below the rib cage (not necessarily associated with meals). The symptoms can be severe enough to interfere with finishing meals or participating in regular daily activities. Those with FD often go through multiple tests like upper endoscopy, CT scan, and gastric emptying study. But despite often-severe symptoms, no clear cause (such as cancer, ulcer disease, ...

Conclusions: The prevalence of GU and DU has gradually decreased whereas that of RE has markedly increased in Japan. Inverse time trends of peptic ulcer and reflux esophagitis are significantly associated with reduced prevalence of HP infection. Key Messages:The prevalence of gastric and duodenal ulcer has gradually decreased whereas that of reflux esophagitis has markedly increased in Japan.The prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection in Japan has greatly decreased from 49.8% to 31.2% during the 14 years (from 1996 to 2010).Inverse time trends of peptic ulcer and reflux esophagitis are associated with reduced prevalenc...

ConclusionsWe identified gaps between the practices of PCPs and the guidelines onH. pylori infection management, while guidelines on GERD management are well adopted. Simplification of the guidelines and exploring barriers towards their implementation by PCPs is warranted.

Studies of the gastric microbiota showed that Helicobacter pylori (Hp) was not alone and the interaction of Hp with those microorganisms might play a part in Hp associated diseases and Gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD). The respective roles of these species in development of different diseases including GERD remains to be determined. Metagenomics study can provide new access to the constitution and diversity of the microbiota as well as the function of microbiota in the pathogenesis of GERD in presence or absence of Hp.

Conclusions: The detection of increased severity of intestinal metaplasia, mucosal atrophy, and gastric inflammation in RLS/WED patients with dyspeptic complaints may entail the close gastrointestinal system evaluation of these patients. However, larger randomized and controlled trials are required on this subject where patients are evaluated by upper GIS endoscopic biopsy.Resumo Introdu ção: Os efeitos das doenças do sistema digestório sobre a Síndrome das Pernas Inquietas/doença de Willis-Ekbom (SPI/DWE) foram demonstrados previamente por testes sorológicos. No entanto, at...
