Effect of Qihuang Decoction Combined with Enteral Nutrition on Postoperative Gastric Cancer of Nutrition and Immune Function.

This study aimed to analyze the effects of Qihuang decoction combined with enteral nutrition on nutrition and the immune function of postoperative gastric cancer. Methods: 120 patients with postoperative gastric cancer in the study group and 117 in the control group were selected as the study subjects from our hospital at random. Indications of nutrition and immune and the rates of complications were compared the day before surgery and 1, 3, 7, and 14 days after surgery. Results: Indications of nutrition except hemoglobin (HB) in the study group were significantly higher than those before operation and the albumin (ALB) and prealbumin (TP) were significantly increased 7 and 14 days after surgery (P

Authors: Yang L, Li J, Hu Z, Fan X, Cai T, Hengli Zhou, Pan H Abstract Gastric precancerous lesions (GPLs) are an essential precursor in the occurrence and development of gastric cancer, known to be one of the most common and lethal cancers worldwide. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has a positive prospect for the prevention and therapy of GPL owing to several advantages including a definite curative effect, fewer side effects compared to other treatments, multiple components, and holistic regulation. Despite these characteristic advantages, the mechanisms of TCM in treating GPL have not been fully elucidated. I...

ConclusionsFor GC patients who underwent radical D2 resection, distant and regional recurrences were still common. Besides, optimizing regional control of lymph nodes outside the D2 dissected area was crucial for rational design of the RT field. Furthermore, the new logistic regression models might act as useful tools to evaluate recurrence risk and determine which patients should receive postoperative chemoradiotherapy.

Authors: Dai YK, Zhang YZ, Li DY, Chen X, Gong L, Luo Q, Lan SY, Chen B, Wu JY, Zhang ZJ, Huang MX, Ye JT, Chen WJ, Li RL, Hu L Abstract Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) is an inducible enzyme stimulated by various inflammatory factors (IFs). Chronic gastritis is a classic model of "inflammation-cancer transformation" and Helicobacter pylori-related gastric diseases (HPGD) are specific ones of this model. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) syndromes could play a predictive role in gastric histopathological evolution. To search for early warning evidence about "inflammation-cancer transformation," this s...

Conclusion: Berberine exerted anticancer effects on human gastric cancer both in vitro and in vivo by inducing apoptosis, which was due to the reduced protein expression of FABPs and the accumulation of fatty acid. PMID: 32328135 [PubMed]

In conclusion, the ethanolic mace extract had anti-H. pylori, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anticancer activities. These data support further preclinical and clinical investigation to see if the mace extract could have a role in treating patients with dyspepsia, peptic ulcers, and possibly gastric cancer.

Authors: Yuan D, Ma Z, Tuo B, Li T, Liu X Abstract Gastric cancer (GC) is a highly invasive and fatal malignant disease that accounts for 5.7% of new global cancer cases and is the third leading cause of cancer-related death. Acid/base homeostasis is critical for organisms because protein and enzyme function, cellular structure, and plasma membrane permeability change with pH. Various ion transporters are expressed in normal gastric mucosal epithelial cells and regulate gastric acid secretion, ion transport, and fluid absorption, thereby stabilizing the differentiation and homeostasis of gastric mucosal epithelial ...

In conclusion, the findings of this study imply that abnormal glycolysis in GPL mice was relieved by Rg3 via regulation of the expressions of PI3K, AKT, mTOR, HIF-1α, LDHA, HK-II, and miRNA-21. Rg3 is an effective supplement for GPL treatment and can be harnessed to inhibit proliferation and induce apoptosis of GPL cells. PMID: 32076440 [PubMed]

ConclusionP. karwinskii leaf extract inhibited reactive oxygen species and exerted an anti-inflammatory effect. Moreover, this extract did not induce gastric damage in the animals. The bioactivity of the species was found to support its traditional use in traditional medicine. This orchid could be used to treat inflammatory diseases without causing the side effects associated with Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. It can also be employed to treat other pathological conditions associated with oxidative stress. The findings herein form the basis for the future discovery of natural products that may serve as safe alternat...
