Rapid recurrence of Helicobacter pylori infection in Peruvian patients after successful eradication. Gastrointestinal Physiology Working Group of the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia and The
TLDR
Rapid recurrence of H. pylori infection after successful eradication suggests that measures other than antimicrobial therapy are needed to fight H.pylori in developing countries. Expand
Bioimpedance monitoring of rehydration in cholera
TLDR
It is concluded that BI has uses in monitoring dehydrated patients, in oral rehydration trials, and in physiological studies as measured by serum protein and packed cell volume. Expand
Variation in the prevalence of gastric cancer in Perú
TLDR
It is concluded that the prevalence of gastric cancer is decreasing in Perú, similar to the current trend undergoing in industrialized nations, however, there are still specific groups with high prevalence that might benefit from screening for early detection and treatment. Expand
Decrease in prevalence of peptic ulcer and gastric adenocarcinoma at the Policlínico Peruano Japones, Lima, Peru, between the years 1985 and 2002. Analysis of 31,446 patients.
TLDR
Over the study period, there was a significant decrease in the prevalence of peptic ulcer and gastric adenocarcinoma at the Policlinico Peruano Japonés, where patients from middle and high socio economic status are attended. Expand
Helicobacter pylori and progressive gastric pathology that predisposes to gastric cancer.
TLDR
It is proposed that future programs designed for the control of gastric cancer would be incomplete if they do not include further evaluation of the many effects of infection by H. pylori on the gastric mucosa and of cost-effective methods to eradicate the infection. Expand
Ecology of Helicobacter pylori in Peru: infection rates in coastal, high altitude, and jungle communities. The Gastrointestinal Physiology Working Group of the Cayetano Heredia and the Johns Hopkins
TLDR
Men and women in the Sierra and jungle areas had significantly higher rates of infection than did those on the coast and there was no significant difference between the three populations with respect to the relationship between infection and grade of gastritis. Expand
Severe gastritis in the Peruvian Andes
Objective : To compare the Helicobacter pylori‐associated pathology in gastric biopsies taken from patients living at sea level with those taken from patients living at high altitude.
Helicobacter pylori populations in Peruvian patients.
TLDR
It is proposed that the homogeneity in RAPD fingerprints for strains isolated from most persons reflects selection for particular H. pylori genotypes during chronic infection in individual hosts and the human diversity in traits that are important to this pathogen. Expand
Chronic atrophic gastritis: early diagnosis in a population where Helicobacter pylori infection is frequent.
TLDR
It is proposed that the development of CAG probably proceeds via a stereotyped sequence, with an early deep inflammatory component that may trigger local gland destruction and eventual permanent loss. Expand
