Management of Helicobacter pylori infection—the Maastricht IV/ Florence Consensus Report
TLDR
In this 4th edition of the Maastricht consensus report aspects related to the clinical role of H pylori were looked at again in 2010, with recommendations to guide doctors involved in the management of this infection associated with various clinical conditions. Expand
Current concepts in the management of Helicobacter pylori infection: the Maastricht III Consensus Report
TLDR
H pylori eradication is less effective than proton pump inhibitor (PPI) treatment in preventing ulcer recurrence in long term NSAID users and a test and treat strategy using a non-invasive test is recommended in adult patients with persistent dyspepsia under the age of 45. Expand
Management of Helicobacter pylori infection—the Maastricht V/Florence Consensus Report
TLDR
This fifth edition of the Maastricht Consensus Report describes how experts from 24 countries examined new data related to H. pylori infection in the various clinical scenarios and provided recommendations on the basis of the best available evidence and relevance. Expand
International Consensus Recommendations on the Management of Patients With Nonvariceal Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding
TLDR
Recommendations emphasize early risk stratification, by using validated prognostic scales, and early endoscopy, whereas data support attempts to dislodge clots with hemostatic, pharmacologic, or combination treatment of the underlying stigmata. Expand
Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 310 diseases and injuries, 1990–2015: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015
TLDR
Ageing of the world's population is increasing the number of people living with sequelae of diseases and injuries, and a summary indicator that combines measures of income per capita, educational attainment, and fertility (the Socio-demographic Index) is created and used to compare observed patterns of health loss to the expected pattern for countries or locations with similar SDI scores. Expand
Global, regional, and national disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) for 306 diseases and injuries and healthy life expectancy (HALE) for 188 countries, 1990–2013: quantifying the epidemiological
TLDR
Patterns of the epidemiological transition with a composite indicator of sociodemographic status, which was constructed from income per person, average years of schooling after age 15 years, and the total fertility rate and mean age of the population, were quantified. Expand
Global, regional, and national life expectancy, all-cause mortality, and cause-specific mortality for 249 causes of death, 1980–2015: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015
TLDR
The Global Burden of Disease 2015 Study provides a comprehensive assessment of all-cause and cause-specific mortality for 249 causes in 195 countries and territories from 1980 to 2015, finding several countries in sub-Saharan Africa had very large gains in life expectancy, rebounding from an era of exceedingly high loss of life due to HIV/AIDS. Expand
Global, regional, and national comparative risk assessment of 79 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or clusters of risks, 1990–2015: a systematic analysis for the Global
TLDR
The comparative risk assessment framework developed for previous iterations of the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015 was used to estimate attributable deaths, disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs), and trends in exposure by age group, sex, year, and geography for 79 behavioural, environmental and occupational risks or clusters of risks from 1990 to 2015. Expand
Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 301 acute and chronic diseases and injuries in 188 countries, 1990–2013: a systematic analysis for the Global
TLDR
The results can guide future health initiatives through examination of epidemiological trends and a better understanding of variation across countries. Expand
Colorectal cancer screening: a global overview of existing programmes
TLDR
This review highlights issues to consider when implementing a CRC screening programme and gives a worldwide overview of CRC burden and the current status of screening programmes, with focus on international differences. Expand
