The occurrence of autoantibodies against intrinsic factor, H,K-ATPase, and pepsinogen was analysed by means of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in three groups of sera. Group 1 comprised sera from 14 rheumatoid arthritis patients with normal acid secretion; group 2, sera from 18 rheumatoid arthritis patients with reduced acid secretion; and group 3, sera(More)
Our aim was to investigate the effect of misoprostol on NSAID-induced gastroduodenal mucosal damage in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The study included 40 patients, and it was designed as a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Misoprostol significantly reduced the gastroduodenal mucosal lesions found at endoscopy (P < 0.05) and prevented the(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), or ankylosing spondylitis (AS) are commonly treated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), sometimes with a concomitant gastroprotective proton pump inhibitor (PPI). The present study examines real-life patient adherence to PPIs when coprescribed with NSAIDs. METHODS(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the microflora-associated characteristics (MACs) of faecal samples of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and to evaluate the actions of sulphasalazine (SASP) on these MACs. The conversion of cholesterol to coprostanol, the production of urobilinogen, the degradation of faecal tryptic activity (FTA) and of(More)
It has been stated that ibuprofen can be safely prescribed with concomitant warfarin. The effect of ibuprofen on primary haemostasis was investigated in 20 patients on warfarin for venous thromboembolism. Ibuprofen, 600 mg orally t.i.d., was added for 1 week. Bleeding time, prothrombin time, platelet count and urinalysis for haemoglobin were performed(More)
A 4-year-old Labrador Retriever was examined because of progressive left hind limb lameness involving the stifle. A villous synovial mass was evacuated by synovectomy. Initially, the macroscopic and histopathologic features suggested a malignant fibrosarcomatous process; however, further histologic studies revealed lesions consistent with pigmented(More)
The relation between the basal and stimulated gastric acid secretion, plasma gastrin, and the gastric microflora was examined in 45 patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Sixteen patients (36%) had basal achlorhydria, and of these, 10 (22%) had achlorhydria or hypochlorhydria after stimulation with pentagastrin. The peak acid output and acidity showed inverse(More)
