Previous studies have suggested that profound inhibition of gastric acid secretion may increase exposure to potentially carcinogenic N-nitroso compounds. The aim of this study was to find out if the proton pump inhibitor omeprazole (20 mg daily) is associated with increased concentrations of potentially carcinogenic N-nitroso compounds in gastric juice. The(More)
BACKGROUND Eradication of Helicobacter pylori provides potential cure in the majority of patients with peptic ulcer disease, and eradication rates of more than 90% have been reported, using omeprazole in combination with two antimicrobials. The choice of antimicrobials, dose regimen and duration of treatment have varied between studies, however, and an(More)
1. Thirty-five patients on continuous therapy with warfarin were given omeprazole 20 mg once daily and placebo each for 3 weeks according to a two-centre randomised double-blind cross-over design. 2. Blood samples were obtained once weekly during the run-in and follow-up periods as well as during the first 2 weeks of each treatment period, and twice during(More)
The relationship between the oxygen supply and the energy metabolism in perfused rat hindlimb muscles was evaluated both during contractions and during recovery from contractions. The 31P-nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technique and conventional biochemical methods were used. Significant correlations were found between the oxygen delivery and the oxygen(More)
It has been shown that omeprazole treatment produces higher intragastric pH values in Helicobacter pylori positive subjects than in H pylori negative subjects. This study aimed to investigate the effect of curing H pylori on the intragastric pH in both the presence and absence of omeprazole therapy. Twenty four hour intragastric pH recordings were performed(More)
To test the hypothesis that Helicobacter pylori infection is associated with a decreased intragastric acidity during omeprazole therapy, ambulatory 24 hour dual point gastric pH recordings were performed in 18 H pylori positive and 14 H pylori negative subjects. There was a four to six week washout period between the two pH recordings made in each subject(More)
A rat model was developed in which the adaptive effects of exposing skeletal muscle tissue to a reduced blood flow during muscle contractions could be studied. The common iliac artery was ligated in one hindlimb, using the other as control. This procedure reduced the exercise blood flow to the individual muscles of the lower limb by 76-93%, evaluated with(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Omeprazole is less effective in healthy subjects than in patients with duodenal ulcers. The aim of this study was to determine whether Helicobacter pylori augments the pH-increasing effect of omeprazole in patients with duodenal ulcers. METHODS In 16 patients with duodenal ulcers, baseline intragastric acidity was measured before and 4-6(More)
The activity of phosphofructokinase (PFK), citrate synthetase (CS), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), 3-OH-CoA dehydrogenase (ACDH) and cytochrome-c-oxidase (cyt-ox) was measured in right atrial auricle and abdominal rectal muscle biopsies from 24 children, aged 3-12 years, with congenital heart malformations. Twelve children had cyanotic conditions (tetralogy(More)
An in vivo rat hindlimb tourniquet ischemia model was used to study the purine nucleotide metabolism in response to 2, 4, and 6 h of ischemia and to the same ischemia periods followed by 1 h of reperfusion. All purine intermediates from ATP to uric acid were determined in skeletal muscle with a high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) system. The major(More)
