Evidence-based management of HCC: Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (2002-2020)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a leading cause of cancer-related mortality with a rapidly changing landscape of treatments. In the past 20 years, numerous randomized controlled trials (RCT) have aimed at improving outcomes across disease stages. We aimed at analyzing the current evidence and identifying potential factors influencing response to therapies. (Source: Gastroenterology)

Faecal microbiota transplantation influences procarcinogenic Escherichia coli in recipient recurrent Clostridioides difficile patients
Patients suffering from multiple recurrent Clostridioides difficile infections (rCDI) have a disturbed gut microbiota, which can be restored by faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT). Despite extensive screening, healthy faeces donors may carry bacteria in their intestinal tract that could have long-term health effects, such as potentially procarcinogenic pks+ Escherichia coli. Here, we aim to determine whether the pks abundance and persistence of pks+ E. coli is influenced by pks-status of the donor faeces. (Source: Gastroenterology)

A pilot study on automatic 3D quantification of Barrett ’s esophagus for risk stratification and therapy monitoring
Barrett ’s epithelium measurement using widely accepted Prague C&M classification is highly operator dependent. We propose a novel methodology for measuring this risk score automatically. The method also enables quantification of the area of Barrett ’s epithelium (BEA) and islands which was not possible before. Furthermore, it allows 3D reconstruction of the esophageal surface enabling interactive 3D visualization. We aim to assess the accuracy of the proposed AI system both on phantom and endoscopic patient data. (Source: Gastroenterology)

Eus-guided fine-needle biopsy with or without rapid on-site evaluation for diagnosis of solid pancreatic lesions: a randomized controlled non-inferiority trial
Benefit of rapid on-site evaluation (ROSE) on diagnostic accuracy of endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle biopsy (EUS-FNB) has never been evaluated in a randomized study. This trial aimed to test the hypothesis that in solid pancreatic lesions (SPLs), diagnostic accuracy of EUS-FNB without ROSE was not inferior to that of EUS-FNB with ROSE. (Source: Gastroenterology)

Circular RNA circHIPK3 promotes homeostasis of the intestinal epithelium by reducing miR-29b function
S: Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are a class of endogenous noncoding RNAs that form covalently closed circles. Although circRNAs influence many biological processes, little is known about their role in intestinal epithelium homeostasis. We surveyed circRNAs required to maintain intestinal epithelial integrity and identified circHIPK3 as a major regulator of intestinal epithelial repair after acute injury. METHODS: Intestinal mucosal tissues were collected from mice exposed to cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) for 48 h and patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and sepsis.

WFDC2 promotes spasmolytic polypeptide-expressing metaplasia through the upregulation of IL33 in response to injury
WAP four-disulfide core domain protein 2 (WFDC2), also known as human epididymis protein 4 (HE4), is a small secretory protein that is highly expressed in fibrosis and human cancers, particularly in the ovaries, lungs, and stomach. However, the role of WFDC2 in carcinogenesis is not fully understood. The present study aimed to investigate the role of WFDC2 in gastric carcinogenesis using preneoplastic metaplasia models.

Early-life microbial restitution reduces colitis risk promoted by antibiotic-induced gut dysbiosis in IL-10-/- mice
Perturbations in the early life gut microbiome are associated with increased risk for complex immune disorders like inflammatory bowel diseases. We previously showed maternal antibiotic-induced gut dysbiosis vertically transmitted to offspring increases experimental colitis risk in IL-10 gene deficient (IL-10-/-) mice, a finding that may result from the loss/lack of essential microbes needed for appropriate immunological education early in life. Here, we aimed to identify key microbes required for proper development of the early life gut microbiome that decrease colitis risk in genetically susceptible animals. (Source: Gastroenterology)

Tumor-specific delivery of 5FU-incorporated EGFR-targeted aptamers as an efficient treatment in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma models
Fluoropyrimidine 5-fluorouracil (5FU) increasingly represents the chemotherapeutic backbone for neoadjuvant, adjuvant and palliative treatment of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). Even in combination with other agents, 5FU efficacy remains transient and limited. One explanation for the inadequate response is insufficient and nonspecific delivery of 5FU to the tumor.

Hybrid stomach-intestinal chromatin states underlie human Barrett ’s metaplasia
Tissue metaplasia is uncommon in adults because established cis-element programs resist rewiring. In Barrett ’s esophagus, the distal esophageal mucosa acquires predominantly intestinal character, with notable gastric features, and is predisposed to develop invasive cancers. We sought to understand the chromatin underpinnings of Barrett’s metaplasia and why it commonly displays simultaneous gastric and intestinal properties. (Source: Gastroenterology)

AGA Clinical Practice Guidelines on the Medical Management of  Moderate to Severe Luminal and Perianal Fistulizing Crohn’s Disease
Crohn ’s disease (CD) is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease with substantial morbidity when not adequately controlled.1 Historically, approximately 20% of patients with CD were hospitalized every year, and the risk of surgery within 1 year of diagnosis was 24%, 36% by 5 years, and 47% by 10 years.2 In recent years, outcomes have improved, likely because of earlier diagnosis, increasing use of biologics, escalation or alteration of therapy based on disease severity, and endoscopic management of colorectal cancer.

AGA Technical Review on the Medical Management of Moderate to Severe Luminal and Perianal Fistulizing Crohn ’s Disease
The incidence and prevalence of Crohn's disease (CD) is rising globally. Patients with moderate to severe CD are at high risk for needing surgery and hospitalization and for developing disease-related complications, corticosteroid dependence, and serious infections. Optimal management of outpatients with moderate to severe luminal and/or fistulizing (including perianal) CD often requires the use of immunomodulator (thiopurines, methotrexate) and/or biologic therapies, including tumor necrosis factor –α antagonists, vedolizumab, or ustekinumab, either as monotherapy or in combination (with immunomodulators) to m...

Presentation of the Julius M. Friedenwald Medal to Michael Camilleri, MD, AGAF
In 1913, Dr Julius Friedenwald, a professor of medicine at the Baltimore College of Physicians and Surgeons (later to become part of the University of Maryland) wrote the definitive 890 page textbook on Diet and Health and dedicated the book to Sir William Osler, FRS FRCP, a Canadian physician and one of the four founding professors of Johns Hopkins Hospital. Much of the book concentrated on the physiology of digestion and the application of diet recommendations to gastrointestinal disorders. Clearly, Dr Friedenwald ’s prescience had Dr Michael Camilleri in mind as a future winner of his namesake award. (Source: Gastroenterology)

The role of phosphate in alcohol-induced experimental pancreatitis
Heavy alcohol consumption is a common cause of acute pancreatitis, however, alcohol abuse does not always result in clinical pancreatitis. As a consequence, the factors responsible for alcohol-induced pancreatitis are not well understood. In experimental animals it has been difficult to produce pancreatitis with alcohol. Clinically, alcohol use predisposes to hypophosphatemia and hypophosphatemia has been observed in some patients with acute pancreatitis. Due to abundant protein synthesis, the pancreas has high metabolic demands, and reduced mitochondrial function leads to organelle dysfunction and pancreatitis. (Source: Gastroenterology)
