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...

The findings, published Tuesday in the medical journal Nature Communications, suggest that disrupting the stomach’s delicate balance o...

Gastrointestinal symptoms are common in both inflammatory and non-inflammatory connective tissue disorders and can involve any part of the gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the anus. Dysphagia, gastrooesophageal reflux, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and change in bowel habit are common symptoms and usually arise from gastrointestinal dysmotility and altered visceral sensitivity. In scleroderma, sensorimotor dysfunction is pronounced and can result in complications such as Barrett's oesophagus, gastroparesis, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, malabsorption and malnutrition, with an associated reduction in survival.
