Into The Future of Gastroenterology With Digestibles And Microbiome Testing

Gluten? Lactose? Stomach pain? Digestive troubles? Way too many people suffer from gastrointestinal issues, and much less are aware of the digital technologies that can come to their aid. Did you know that digestibles could successfully replace the dreaded colonoscopy? Or have you heard about microbiome testing? What about the swarm of health apps supporting dietary restrictions? We took a deep breath and jumped into the universe of digital technologies just to bring you as much information about the future of gastroenterology as possible. Will you jump after us? IBS, colorectal cancer, and other animals Referring to Gerald Durrell’s autobiographical work, gastroenterology is a universe that deals with a swarm of diseases related to the digestive system, including the intestines, liver, pancreas, or the biliary tree, although it is often only identified with colorectal cancer and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) that are becoming more and more common nowadays. And perhaps also with one of the most unpleasant medical examinations ever – colonoscopy. While a significant amount of people suffers from digestive problems, it is still considered a rather intimate, embarrassing, and/or minor medical issue, which might not even be shared with the family physician. If you believe that’s not true just think about whether you rather share your skiing injury with a complete stranger or that you have been experiencing constipation for the last week. A survey cond...

This multistep process involves the migration of cancer cells to anatomically distant organs. Metastasis formation relies on cancer cell dissemination and survival in the circulatory system, as well as adaptation to the new tissue notably through genetic and/or epigenetic alterations. A large number of proteins are clear...

Integrins are the key regulators of critical biological functions and contribute significantly to the promotion of cancer at almost every stage of disease progr...

This paradoxical effect of chemotherapy can affect different districts such as the primary tumor, the circulation and distant organs by s...

Authors: Druschky K, Bleich S, Grohmann R, Engel RR, Toto S, Neyazi A, Däubl B, Stübner S Abstract The aim of the study was to assess rates of severe parkinsonism related to different antipsychotic drugs (APDs) using data from an observational pharmacovigilance programme in German-speaking countries-Arzneimittelsicherheit in der Psychiatrie (AMSP). Data on APD utilization and reports of severe APD-induced parkinsonism were collected in 99 psychiatric hospitals in Austria, Germany and Switzerland during the period 2001-2016. Of 340,099 patients under surveillance, 245,958 patients were treated with APDs fo...

In this study, human serum albumin (HSA) complexed with 5BMF (5BMF@HSA) has been developed to further improve its solubility (from 1.61 to 5.41 mg/mL), and the fluorescent intensity of 5BMF@HSA was improved over 2 times. Nearly 10-fold 5BMF was released from 5BMF@HSA complex in acidic condition when compared with neutral/basic environment. Intracellular distribution of 5BMF was altered by HSA as its signals were observed in lysosomes where free 5BMF barely localized. Both 5BMF@HSA and 5BMF showed selective toxicity toward tumor cells in μM and nM range and effectively inhibited tumor growth in mice model. In summar...

In the present study, sliding wear test on Pin-on disc tribometer was conducted on CGI. The wear behavior was studied at room temperature (32 °C) and 200 °C test against rotating hardened steel metal disc as counter face. The influence of the temperatures on abrasive wear behavior of CGI was rep...

The objective of this study is to improve the corrosion resistance of nickel bipolar plate by means of conductive polymer coating. Typically, polypyrrole film has been electrodeposited using chronopotentiometric technique at different current densities in aqueous sodium saccharin medium. The electrochemical behaviour of nickel in the presence of sodium saccharinate solution in the absence and the presence of the pyrrole monomer were investigated using cyclic voltammetry. Characterization of the polypyrrole coating was carried out using x-ray photoelectrons (XPS) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Corrosion behavior of...
