AIM Gastric juice may constitute a precious source of clinicopathological information. We assessed the usefulness of real-time, perendoscopic, gastric juice pH determination in identifying preneoplastic conditions of the stomach, that often escape the mere endoscopic evaluation. METHODS The study included 245 patients (115M; 130F; age 47±17). In each of(More)

We determined the contribution of real-time gastric juice analysis in detecting lesions non-detectable with the simple endoscopic inspection. METHODS Endoscopy, histology and gastric juice analysis were performed in 216 patients. We assessed six diagnostic strategies: EGDS(More)
To evidentiate a participation clinically not evident of thrombocytes during viral infections, the Authors performed platelets count in 207 children of age varying 7 months to 12 years from the diagnosis and during the course of the illness. A subclinical thrombocytopenia was revealed in 55% of children affected by measles, in 25% of mumps, in 45% of(More)
