Objectives: ‘Coffee ground’ vomiting (CGV) has classically been considered a sign of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. There is a paucity of data concerning endoscopic findings and outcomes in patients presenting with CGV. The aim of this study was to analyze endoscopic yield and 30-day outcomes in CGV patients. Methods: Analysis was performed over the period 1992–2005 and four groups were identified: CGV alone, hematemesis alone, melena alone, and hematemesis and melena. Endoscopic yield, requirement for blood transfusion, rebleeding, and mortality rate at 30 days were calculated and compared ...

Background and aim Recent clinical trials have confirmed that Helicobacter pylori infection is positively associated with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), although some research has shown a negative association. Therefore, to confirm whether H. pylori eradication treatment is feasible for NAFLD patients in our hospital, we aimed to establish the association between H. pylori infection and NAFLD. Methods We enrolled 91 patients with NAFLD diagnosed by abdominal B-mode ultrasonography between January and December 2018. H. pylori infection was confirmed by C13 urea breath test, and liver function, glycometabolis...

(CNN) — Still taking a daily aspirin to ward off heart attacks? You might want to think again, according to a new review. Aspirin is still one of the most commonly used medications in the world, even though it’s no longer recommended as a preventative by many health authorities. There is no evidence that low-dose aspirin — less than 325 milligrams a day — should be taken by most adults in good cardiovascular health, according to a new review of existing research that published Wednesday in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology. The review, which focused on the risks and benefits of low-dose d...

There's no evidence that a daily aspirin should be taken by most adults in good cardiovascular health, according to a new review. The risk of a major bleeding event due to the drug's blood thinning effects outweighs the benefit, the research said.

Authors: Ouyang Y, Li L, Ling P Abstract Helicobacter pylori causes a Gram-negative bacterial infection that can increase the risk of gastric cancer. Consequently, meticulous prevention of an H. pylori infection is significant for averting gastric cancer in humans. Nobiletin, an important dietary polymethoxylated flavonoid in citrus fruits, possesses multidimensional pharmaceutical properties, including its ability to act as an anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antioxidative, cardiovascularly defensive, neuroprotective, and antimetabolic agent. Our study evaluates the role of nobiletin in inflammation-mediated gastric...
