Helicobacter pylori is one of the most prevalent infection worldwide. It affects individuals of different age groups. Aging ‐associated risk factors should be considered. Future studies, related to aging andH. pylori infection with extragastric disease can help to provide vivid evidences. AbstractHelicobacter pylori is one of the most prevalent infection worldwide. It affects individuals of different age groups. Elderly people tend to resist eradication treatment and worsening of infection can lead to several gastric and non ‐gastric pathologies. Aging‐associated cellular and molecular alteration can increase the ris...

Conclusions: Swept-source optical coherence tomography provides highly reproducible measurements of retinal and choroidal thickness in both the macular and peripapillary areas. The reproducibility is higher in measurements of retinal thickness versus choroidal thickness.RESUMO Objetivo: Avaliar a reprodutibilidade das medi ções da retina e da coroide nas áreas macular e peripapilar utilizando a tomografia de coerência ótica com fonte de varredura pacientes com doença de Parkinson. Métodos: Um total de 63 olhos de 63 pacientes com doença de Parkinson idiopática f...
