Gastroesophageal reflux and antacid therapy in IPF: analysis from the Australia IPF Registry

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is highly prevalent in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and may play a role in its pathogenesis. Recent IPF treatment guidelines suggest that all patients with IPF be ...

Authors: Mohammadifard M, Saremi Z, Rastgoo M, Akbari E Abstract There is evidence that infection by H. pylori can have a critical proportion in the development of hepatocyte injury and both noncancerous and malignant liver conditions including non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). This is attributed to several mechanisms, the most important one being the toxic products of the bacterium H. pylori and oxidative injury for hepatocytes which promotes hepatic injury. The present research was aimed at determining the association between H. pylori infection and the prevalence of NAFLD in Birjand, Iran. Two groups we...

Authors: Michel F, Dannesberger R, Stroh T, Fritsche R, Ahrens P Abstract The findings of functional endoscopy (upper esophageal sphincter insufficiency, cardia insufficiency, esophagitis, gastric heterotopia, axial sliding hernia, and visible aerosols) can be traced back to pharyngeal acid exposure by oropharyngeal pH measurement. Significantly increased pharyngeal acid loads are seen in gastric heterotopy and axial sliding hernia. For all measured statistics, the pharyngeal acid load is in the pathological or even very pathological range. The value of functional endoscopy in the context of laryngopharyngeal reflu...

AbstractBackgroundHiatal hernia (HH) repair during laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has been advocated to reduce the incidence of postoperative gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and/or intrathoracic migration (ITM). The necessity of intraoperative repair in asymptomatic patients is still controversial. Previous, mid-term results of a prospective, comparative study evaluating posterior cruroplasty concomitant with LSG (group A 48 patients with simple vs. group B 48 reinforced with bioabsorbable mesh) confirmed the safety and effectiveness of simultaneous procedures. Present aim was to report the 60  months fo...

Publication date: Available online 6 August 2019Source: Materials Chemistry and PhysicsAuthor(s): Kamini Turan, Prabhsharan Kaur, Dinesh Manhas, Jadab Sharma, Gaurav VermaCarbon nanofibers (CNF) are the state of art materials owing to their special morphological features. In the pristine form, they exhibit strong van der Waals interactions which keep them agglomerated. The actual potential of these nanofibers could be realized once these are unbundled. In this work, CNF have been dispersed with Triton X-100 during ultrasonication, and further functionalized using 3:1 mixture of H2SO4 and HNO3 via reflux method. The effects...

In this issue of JAMA Pediatrics, Shaikh et al continue to shed light on important aspects of urinary tract infections (UTIs) in children based on data gleaned from the Randomized Intervention for Children with Vesicoureteral Reflux (RIVUR) and Careful Urinary Tract Infection Evaluation (CUTIE) trials. The study by Shaikh et al addresses the likelihood of new renal scars developing after a first febrile UTI and after recurrent UTIs. Three decades ago, the pioneering group in Sweden identified a slight increase in renal scarring from the first UTI to the second and from the second to the third; only after 3 UTIs did the rat...
