Dietary changes didn’t make a difference, so he began taking prescription oral anti-inflammatory drugs that are often used to treat certain bowel diseases, which alleviated but didn’t eliminate his discomfort. He started using prescription steroid suppositories to cope with flare-ups of the inflammatory bowel disease...

This study investigated the effect of sodium alginate on biopsy-related gastrointestinal symptoms.METHODS: In this open-label, randomized, controlled trial, patients undergoing EGD with biopsy were randomly assigned to a treatment or control group. In the treatment group, sodium alginate was orally administered for 3 days after EGD. Patients completed questionnaires about their gastrointestinal symptoms at baseline (past week), the day after returning home, and after another 3 days. Gastrointestinal symptoms, including abdominal pain, epigastric pain/soreness, heartburn, acid reflux, nausea/vomiting, borborygmus, abdominal...

yong Yu Heartburn and non-cardiac chest pain are the predominant symptoms in many esophageal disorders, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), non-erosive reflux disease (NERD), functional heartburn and chest pain, and eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). At present, neuronal mechanisms underlying the process of interoceptive signals in the esophagus are still less clear. Noxious stimuli can activate a subpopulation of primary afferent neurons at their nerve terminals in the esophagus. The evoked action potentials are transmitted through both the spinal and vagal pathways to their central terminals, which synapse w...

Am J Physiol Gastrointest Liver Physiol. 2021 Jun 23. doi: 10.1152/ajpgi.00187.2021. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBile acid reflux in the esophagus plays a role in the pathogenesis of certain esophageal disorders where it can induce esophageal pain and heartburn. The present study aimed to determine whether bile acid, deoxycholic acid (DCA), directly activates and sensitizes esophageal vagal nociceptive afferent C-fiber subtypes. DCA-elicited effects on vagal nodose and jugular neurons were studied by calcium imaging. Its effects on esophageal-labeled nodose and jugular neurons were then determined by patch-clamp recordin...
