BACKGROUND Patients with impaired renal function have been known to have elevated concentrations of serum pepsinogens, which are raised by Helicobacter pylori infection of the stomach. The present study was performed to examine the effect of H. pylori infection on serum pepsinogen concentrations in dialysis patients. METHODS Forty nine patients on(More)
It has been shown that hyperhomocysteinemia is a risk factor for atherosclerotic vascular disease. In this study, we measured total plasma homocysteine in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients and evaluated its correlation with atherosclerosis. Subjects consisted of healthy volunteers, and hemodialysis (HD) and CAPD patients. Fluoro-HPLC(More)
In order to explore the role of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection in hypergastrinemia in patients on dialysis, the changes in serum gastrin concentration were examined before and after eradication treatment for H. pylori. Twenty-seven patients on dialysis were treated for the eradication of H. pylori. Fasting serum gastrin concentrations were(More)
It is known that Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) plays an important role in gastritis and peptic ulcer disease in the general population. Although upper gastrointestinal mucosal lesions have been one of the most common complications in patients with chronic renal failure, quite few reports are available regarding the prevalence of H. pylori and its(More)
The efficacy and safety of combination therapy with amoxicillin, lansoprazole, and plaunotol for the eradication of Helicobacter pylori in patients on dialysis were evaluated. The study subjects comprised 15 dialysis patients in whom H pylori had been found in the gastric mucosa. The patients were given 500 mg amoxicillin once a day for 3 weeks, 30 mg(More)
The aim of the present study was to examine the efficacy and safety of combination therapy with amoxicillin (AMPC), lansoprazole, and plaunotol for the eradication of H. pylori in dialysis patients. The subjects consisted of 15 dialysis patients (10 men and 5 women, mean age of 56 +/- 2.4 years) in whom H. pylori was found in the stomach. H. pylori status(More)
S-1 was found to be highly effective against metastatic hepatic lesions from multiple drug-resistant breast cancers, in 2 patients. The details of these cases are presented below. Case 1, a 59-year-old woman, was HER2-positive. For chemotherapy following a recurrence, trastuzumab+weekly paclitaxel and trastuzumab+vinorelbine regimens were attempted, but the(More)
The present report describes a rare case of hematophagic histiocytosis associated with acute renal failure. A 32-year-old woman was referred to us from a local hospital because of progressive deterioration of renal function, jaundice and a bleeding tendency. The physical findings at admission revealed hyperemic conjunctivae, gingival bleeding, hepatomegaly,(More)
