Upper gastrointestinal symptoms and associated endoscopic and histological features in patients receiving immune checkpoint inhibitors.

CONCLUSION: We observed a correlation between ICI use and onset of upper GI inflammation even when other risk factors were excluded. Gastric involvement was evident more often than duodenal involvement on endoscopic and histological level. PMID: 31079556 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Gonzalez, Qiao Wang, Yangang WangAbstractAnalysis of the properties of the tongue has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for disease diagnosis. Notably, tongue analysis, which is non-invasive and convenient compared with gastroscopy and pathological examination, can be used to assess chronic gastritis (CG). In order to find potential diagnostic biomarkers and study the metabolic mechanisms of the endo...

AbstractPurposeChronic gastritis is observed in almost half world population. Traditional medications against chronic gastritis might produce adverse effects, so alternative nutritional strategies are needed to prevent the aggravation of gastric mucosal damage. The aim of this study is to evaluate the protective effect of the combination of wheat peptides and fucoidan (WPF) on adults diagnosed with chronic superficial gastritis in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial.MethodsParticipants were randomized to receive WPF (N  =  53) or placebo (N  =  53) once daily for 45&nbs...

ghalpour Sharifi-Rad Valere Tsouh Fokou Cho Martins Symphytum species belongs to the Boraginaceae family and have been used for centuries for bone breakages, sprains and rheumatism, liver problems, gastritis, ulcers, skin problems, joint pain and contusions, wounds, gout, hematomas and thrombophlebitis. Considering the innumerable potentialities of the Symphytum species and their widespread use in the world, it is extremely important to provide data compiling the available literature to identify the areas of intense research and the main gaps in order to design future studies. The present review aims at sum...

In this study, we compared clinicopathological characteristics and prevalence of non ‐Helicobacter pylori Helicobacter (NHPH) infection between common type mucosa ‐associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma and MALT lymphoma with nodular gastritis‐like appearance (M‐NGA).H suis infection was detected in 4/4 cases of M ‐NGA. Our study indicates that NHPH infection may be one of the causes of the pathogenesis of M‐NGA and that eradication therapy should be the first‐choice treatment for M‐NGA associated with NHPH infection. AbstractMost patients with gastric mucosa ‐associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphom...

AbstractDefective spleen function increases susceptibility to bacterial infections which can be prevented by vaccine prophylaxis. Splenic hypofunction can be found in a number of autoimmune disorders; however, no data are available regarding autoimmune atrophic gastritis (AAG), autoimmune enteropathy (AIE) and autoimmune liver disease (AILD). Peripheral blood samples from patients with AAG (n = 40), AIE (n = 3) and AILD (n = 40) were collected. Patients affected by autoimmune disorders already known to be associated with splenic hypofunction, i.e. coeliac disease (CD) and ulcerativ...

Conclusion: There was no evidence of the role of H. pylori in GM damage in the SLE and APS patients. More frequent detection of H. pylori was observed in anticoagulants or low-dose acetylsalicylic acid users than in glucocorticoids and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs ones.

Conclusion: Our study demonstrated that H. pylori may play an important role in the development of BG hyperplasia and hamartomas in association with chronic gastritis and duodenitis. This is probably due to chronic irritation. PMID: 31187029 [PubMed - in process]

In conclusion, LP2 has been shown to improve the protective effect of rHpaA against H. pylori infection, which may be closely related to its ability to activate TLR2 by mimicking the terminal structure of nHpaA.
