Gastro-esophageal Reflux and Esophageal Motility Disorders in Morbidly Obese Patients
TLDR
Upper GI endoscopy should be performed routinely during evaluation of morbidly obese patients for bariatric surgery, and effective treatment is probably best provided by Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, which produces effective weight loss and correction of pathological reflux. Expand
Effect of Whey-Based Culture Supernatant of Lactobacillus acidophilus (johnsonii) La1 on Helicobacter pylori Infection in Humans
TLDR
La1 culture supernatant shown to be effective in vitro has a partial, acid-independent long-term suppressive effect on H. pylori in humans. Expand
Budesonide treatment for collagenous colitis: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter trial.
TLDR
Oral budesonide (Entocort capsules) is an effective and safe treatment modality for patients with collagenous colitis and long-term follow-up is necessary to investigate whether clinical and histologic remission is sustained. Expand
Differential expression of laminin‐5 subunits and integrin receptors in human colorectal neoplasia
TLDR
It is suggested that in colorectal cancer, an abnormal expression of laminin‐5 subunits and integrin chains may identify a subset of carcinoma cells prone to invade focally and to contribute to disease aggressiveness. Expand
Helicobacter pylori infection in Swiss adolescents: prevalence and risk factors
TLDR
The rate of H. pylori infection among Swiss adolescents is one of the lowest in Europe, Nevertheless, an important disparity is evident between the rates observed in the native population and that among immigrants. Expand
Effect of curing Helicobacter pylori infection on intragastric pH during treatment with omeprazole.
TLDR
It is concluded that the apparently greater antisecretory effect of omeprazole during H pylori infection may be a result of the production of acid neutralising compounds by the H plyori. Expand
Acid inhibition on the first day of dosing: comparison of four proton pump inhibitors
TLDR
This data indicates that rapid and consistent acid suppression on the first day of dosing may be important in treating acid‐related disorders. Expand
Performance of multidetector computed tomography colonography compared with conventional colonoscopy
TLDR
Computed tomography colonography provides good data quality and has good sensitivity and specificity for the detection of colonic lesions of 10 mm or more and conventional colorectal neoplasia. Expand
Autofluorescence endoscopy in surveillance of Barrett's esophagus: a multicenter randomized trial on diagnostic efficacy.
TLDR
In this referral Barrett's esophagus population with a higher prevalence of neoplastic lesions, the AFE-guided approach improved the diagnostic yield for neoplasia in comparison with the conventional approach using four- quadrant biopsies, however, AFE alone was not suitable for replacing the standard four-quadrant biopsy protocol. Expand
Combined written and oral information prior to gastrointestinal endoscopy compared with oral information alone: a randomized trial
TLDR
Written information led to more favourable assessments of the quality of information and had no impact on patient anxiety nor on the overall assessment of the endoscopy. Expand
