UA researchers find physicians' adherence to H. pylori guidelines low
(University of Arizona) It was long thought that gastric ulcers and other digestive woes were brought about by stress. But in 2005, clinical fellow Barry J. Marshall and pathologist J. Robin Warren were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for recognizing the role of Helicobacter pylori in gastritis and peptic ulcer disease. Now physicians can point their collective fingers at H. pylori when it comes to a host of gastric maladies in their patients. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Researchers from Aarhus solve the mystery of the acid pump
(Aarhus University) Researchers at Aarhus University in Denmark have succeeded in identifying the mechanisms involved in what is known as the acid pump, which at the cellular level pumps acid into the stomach -- in some cases leading to gastric ulcers and gastroesophageal reflux disease. The research results emanate from Jens Chr. Skou's sodium-potassium pump, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize twenty years ago. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

This Vitamin Can Save Your Brain
Your brain has amazing abilities. And it can heal itself. That’s not something you’re likely to hear from mainstream medicine — especially if you or a loved one suffer from the effects of stroke, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or another form of dementia. Here at the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine, I’ve seen many people with brain damage. And, sadly, most have been deemed “hopeless” by so-called medical experts. But I can tell you there is nothing hopeless about dementia — no matter what its cause. With the right nutrients, there are times when brain damage can be re...

This Vitamin Could Save Your Life
For years, I’ve recommended that my patients take a special family of super-nutrients with the power to boost their health and save their lives in at least a half a dozen ways. I’m talking about tocotrienols, an especially potent form of vitamin E. Tocotrienols, which comprise four out of the eight types of vitamin E, are powerful antioxidants that until recently were ignored by mainstream medicine. But the patients at my wellness clinic and regular readers of my newsletter will know that I’ve recommended them as a critical nutrient for years. And I do it because almost daily I observe the effects of the...

Vegetable oil ingredient key to destroying gastric disease bacteria
(University of California - San Diego) The bacterium Helicobacter pylori is strongly associated with gastric ulcers and cancer. To combat the infection, researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Jacobs School of Engineering developed LipoLLA, a therapeutic nanoparticle that contains linolenic acid, a component in vegetable oils. In mice, LipoLLA was safe and more effective against H. pylori infection than standard antibiotic treatments. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

The Basics of Peptic Ulcers
Peptic ulcers can cause a variety of symptoms, and these vary from patient to patient. Some patients with ulcers have minimal, unusual, or even no symptoms at all. Others may have every symptom. This is why it is very important to consult your doctor if you have any concerns. It is important to understand the causes of peptic ulcers. In the past, it was believed stress and diet caused peptic ulcers. Later, researchers stated stomach acids (hydrochloric acid and pepsin) contributed to the majority of ulcer formation. Today, however, research shows that most ulcers develop as a result of infection with a bacterium called ...

Gastric balloon pill launched in UK
Most of the UK media has got rather overexcited about the UK launch of Obalon, a gastric balloon in pill form that can be swallowed to help overweight people achieve rapid weight loss without invasive surgery. The Obalon pills are designed to be inflated into balloons in the stomach, reducing the free volume of the stomach and therefore how much a person can eat before they feel full. Intra-gastric balloons are not new, and are sometimes provided to extremely obese people through the NHS, although these often have to be surgically implanted. Obalon has been approved in Europe for overweight and obese adults, but in th...

Eradicating Helicobacter pylori
Gut-dwelling bacteria are attracting increasing attention, particularly those associated with human diseases. Helicobacter pylori is found in the stomach of humans, where it may cause chronic gastritis and gastric ulcers, although the majority of infections are asymptomatic. The bacterium has been associated with man since over 100,000 years ago, when it first infected San hunter-gatherers... (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)

Getting rid of unwanted visitors
(University of Veterinary Medicine -- Vienna) Helicobacter pylori is found in the stomach of humans, where it may cause chronic gastritis and gastric ulcers. An international consortium coordinated by Yoshan Moodley at the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna has discovered that the Baka pygmies of Cameroon, a community of hunter-gatherers, have a surprisingly low rate of Helicobacter infection. The findings are reported in the online journal PLOS Genetics and cause us to question how the bacteria are maintained in human populations. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

How Common Are Gastric Ulcers?
Discussion The exact cause of gastric and upper intestinal inflammation and ulceration are not entirely understood. Imbalances between irritative factors and mucosal defenses underlie it. Gastric acid production is at adult levels by 3-4 years. Actual ulceration is associated with a lower acid secretion for gastric ulcerations but are increased in duodenal ulcerations in both adults and children. In adults changes to the mucus layer of the stomach and duodenum and bicarbonate secretion play a part in upper GI inflammation and ulcerations. Genetic studies have been linked to differences in both acid production, and mucosal ...

Stroke Drug Kills Bacteria That Cause Ulcers And Tuberculosis
A drug currently being used to treat ischemic strokes may prove to be a significant advance in the treatment of tuberculosis and ulcers. In a new research report appearing online in The FASEB Journal, a compound called ebselen effectively inhibits the thioredoxin reductase system in a wide variety of bacteria, including Helicobacter pylori which causes gastric ulcers and Mycobacterium tuberculosis which causes tuberculosis. Thioredoxin and thioredoxin reductase proteins are essential for bacteria to make new DNA, and protect them against oxidative stress caused by the immune system...
