Endoscopic tissue sampling – Part 1: Upper gastrointestinal and hepatopancreatobiliary tracts. European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) Guideline

Endoscopy DOI: 10.1055/a-1611-5091 1 ESGE recommends that, where there is a suspicion of eosinophilic esophagitis, at least six biopsies should be taken, two to four biopsies from the distal esophagus and two to four biopsies from the proximal esophagus, targeting areas with endoscopic mucosal abnormalities. Distal and proximal biopsies should be placed in separate containers.Strong recommendation, low quality of evidence. 2 ESGE recommends obtaining six biopsies, including from the base and edge of the esophageal ulcers, for histologic analysis in patients with suspected viral esophagitis.Strong recommendation, low quality of evidence. 3 ESGE recommends at least six biopsies are taken in cases of suspected advanced esophageal cancer and suspected advanced gastric cancer.Strong recommendation, moderate quality of evidence. 4 ESGE recommends taking only one to two targeted biopsies for lesions in the esophagus or stomach that are potentially amenable to endoscopic resection (Paris classification 0-I, 0-II) in order to confirm the diagnosis and not compromise subsequent endoscopic resection.Strong recommendation, low quality of evidence. 5 ESGE recommends obtaining two biopsies from the antrum and two from the corpus in patients with suspected Helicobacter pylori infection and for gastritis staging.Strong recommendation, low quality of evidence. 6 ESGE recommends biopsies from or, if endoscopically resectable, resection of gastric adenomas.Strong recommendatio...

Aging is built on feedback loops, interactions between damage and dysfunction in which both sides accelerate the other. This is a feature of all complex systems, not just biological ones. The existence of feedback loops in which damage accumulation causes dysfunction that accelerates damage accumulation is the fundamental reason as to why aging is an accelerating process. It starts slowly, and moves ever more rapidly with time. Aging in one's 30s is a very different beast to aging in one's 70s, and the downhill slide is much faster in later life. The way to break this cycle is to repair the damage. This is true whet...

AbstractGastric gland mucin secreted from pyloric gland cells, mucous neck cells, and cardiac gland cells of the gastric mucosa harbors uniqueO-glycans carrying terminal α1,4-linkedN-acetylglucosamine residues ( αGlcNAc), which are primarily attached to the scaffold mucin core protein MUC6. αGlcNAc acts as an antibiotic againstHelicobacter pylori (H. pylori), a microbe causing gastric cancer. In addition, mice deficient inA4gnt, which encodes the enzyme α1,4-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase ( α4GnT) that catalyzes αGlcNAc biosynthesis, spontaneously develop gastric differentiated-type ade...

Authors: Venerito M, Vasapolli R, Malfertheiner P Abstract Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a Gram negative spiraliform bacterium that is commonly found in the stomach. H. pylori infection is still one of the world's most frequent infections, present in the stomachs of approximately one-half of the world's people. H. pylori infection is etiologically linked to histologic chronic active gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, and primary B-cell gastric lymphoma (gastric MALT lymphoma) and represents the major risk factor for the development of sporadic non-cardia gastric cancer (GC) of both intestinal and diffuse type. S...
