Conclusion: This expert review provides key recommendations for decision making in order to minimize the irrational use of PPIs. Some significant recommendations include: patients with GERD and acid-related complications should take a PPI for minimum 12 weeks for healing of esophagitis, and for maximum up to 48 weeks for symptom control. Patients with Barrett's esophagus should take long-term PPI. Patients at high risk for ulcer-related bleeding from NSAIDs including aspirin should take a PPI if they continue to take NSAIDs. Best practice recommendations are meant to merely assist with decision making in conjunction with p...

In this study, we observed the effect of HWJND on esophageal morphology in a rat model of ovalbumin (OVA)-induced visceral hypersensitivity followed by acid exposure. Esophageal morphology was assessed by measuring the extent of dilated intercellular spaces (DIS), desmosome disruption, and mitochondrial fragmentation. HWJND in low, moderate, and high doses relieved DIS and desmosome disruption in esophageal epithelium compared with model group (P<0.05 for all doses). In addition, HWJND in high dose protected mitochondria from fragmentation (P<0.05). Other findings suggest that DIS and mitochondrial fragmentation are ...

Abstract BACKGROUND AND AIM: Fecal calprotectin has successfully been widely recommended as a sensitive biomarker of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Recently, we have identified an excellent new fecal biomarker, B-cell activating factor (BAFF), as effective as fecal calprotectin for diagnosing intestinal inflammation. Here in this study, we sought to investigate the potential of fecal BAFF as a screening marker for gastrointestinal inflammation and neoplasms in patients with abdominal discomfort. METHODS: 230 patients with abdominal discomfort were prospectively enrolled into this study and fecal samples w...

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is now one of the most common diagnoses made in a gastroenterology practice. From a conventional pathophysiological perspective GERD is conceptualized as incompetence of the antireflux barrier at the esophagogastric junction; the more severe that incompetence, the worse the disease. However, it is increasingly clear that many presentations of GERD represent distinct phenotypes with unique predisposing cofactors and pathophysiology outside of this paradigm. Three major consensus initiatives have grappled with this dilemma (the Montreal Consensus, The Rome Foundation, and the Lyon Conse...

AbstractBackgroundObesity is associated with a twofold risk of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and thrice the risk of Barrett ’s esophagus (BE). Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) leads to weight loss and improvement of GERD in population with obesity, but its effect on BE is less clear.MethodsBibliographic databases were searched systematically for relevant articles till January 31, 2019. Studies evaluating the effect of RYGB on BE with preoperative and postoperative endoscopy and biopsy were included. Study quality was assessed using the Methodological Index for Non-Randomized Studies (MINORS) tool. Meta-analys...
