Authors: Pan W, Zhang H, Wang L, Zhu T, Chen B, Fan J Abstract Background: Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is relevant to several renal diseases. Our previous research indicates that cytotoxin-associated gene A (CagA) of H. pylori increases secretion of serum immunoglobulin A1 (IgA1) and induces the underglycosylation of IgA1, one of the key factors causing IgA nephropathy. Here, we aimed to study the correlation between H. pylori infection and kidney damage in patients with peptic ulcer, and evaluate the effect of H. pylori eradication on kidney damage.Methods: 14C-urea breath test and rapid urease tests were appl...

Oikonomou et al. [1] concluded that Galectin-3 (Gal-3) is a novel marker of chronic kidney disease with predictive ability in decompensated cirrhosis and an index of disease outcome. Notably, although the relationship between plasma concentrations of Gal-3 and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is well established [2], a similar association in a cohort of patients with liver cirrhosis has not been studied so far.

Breath analysis is used to detect the composition of exhaled gas. As a quick and non-invasive detection method, breath analysis provides deep insights into the progression of various kinds of diseases, especially those with metabolism disorders. Abundant information on volatile compounds in diabetic patients has been studied in numerous articles in the literature. However, exhaled gas in diabetic patients can be altered by various complications. So far, little attention has been paid to this alteration. In our paper, we found that under air pollution conditions, diabetic patients exhale more nitric oxide. Diabetic pa...

Conclusions Patients with longer duration of HD, male sex, and the presence of dyspepsia had higher odds to exhibit H. pylori infection. Helicobacter pylori infection did not seem to have an influence on iron deficiency or anemia severity in HD patients and does not have relation with serum hepcidin level. However, H. pylori may to be related to inflammation in HD patients.

AbstractStrongyloides stercoralis (S. stercoralis), a human intestinal nematode, can lead to hyper/disseminated (HD) infection in patients treated with corticosteroids. Here, we report a case of strongyloidiasis in a 58-year-old female with a history of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The patient presented with abdominal pain and gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. Stool was negative for parasitic agents in the first direct smear examination, and the patient with the probable diagnosis ofHelicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection or Crohn ’s disease received antibiotics and corticosteroids. ...

ConclusionIn addition to age, male gender, H. pylori infection, and concomitant use of NSAIDs, COX-2 inhibitors, steroids, and thienopyridines, underlying co-morbidities including diabetes, CKD, cirrhosis, history of PUD are also important risk factors for first-time occurrence of non-variceal UGIB in aspirin users.

CONCLUSION: Abnormal upper endoscopy findings were detected in all studied patients. This study suggested that upper endoscopy is a valid procedure for kidney transplant candidates. However, prospective studies are needed to shed more light on this matter. PMID: 29771269 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients receiving hemodialysis (HD) often develop gastrointestinal abnormalities over their long treatment period. In general, prognosis in such patients is poor due to the development of protein-energy wasting (PEW). Therefore, it is important to clarify the etiology of PEW and to establish better strategies to deal with this condition. Chronic Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection in the gastric mucosa has a close association with not only the development of peptic ulcer disease and gastric cancer, but is also associated with abnormal plasma and gastric mucosal ghrelin ...
