OBJECTIVES To evaluate two triple-therapy (TT) regimens of colloidal bismuth subcitrate (CBS), metronidazole, and tetracycline HCl in eradicating Helicobacter pylori, with particular attention to the frequency of resulting adverse effects of the two therapies. METHODS A prospective, randomized controlled trial was conducted in patients with symptoms of(More)
The role of Campylobacter pylori gastritis in dyspepsia could be clarified more readily if reliable eradication therapy were available. Antibiotic monotherapy and combined therapy with an antibiotic agent plus a bismuth compound have yielded poor long-term results. In this study, bismuth-tetracycline-metronidazole triple therapy has been used to eradicate(More)
Herpes simplex virus type-2 (HSV-2) specific glycoprotein G (gG-2) is widely used as the antigen of choice for serodiagnosis of HSV-2. In order to develop an ELISA for serodetection of HSV-2 IgG in patient sera, the soluble form of the mature gG-2 antigen (mgG-2), gG283-649, was expressed using a baculovirus expression system. gG283-649 contains the(More)
A randomized study was carried out to determine the effect of oxygen (3 liters/min) via a novel oxygenating mouthguard (Oxyguard) on arterial oxygenation in 242 intravenously sedated patients undergoing gastroscopy. In another group of 21 patients, a randomized crossover study of arterial oxygen saturation using either the standard mouthguard or the(More)
The purpose of this study was to measure the effectiveness of radiation safety instruction and the impact on radiation film badge levels. A convenience sample of 144 endoscopy nurses and technicians was pretested for radiation safety knowledge, given a course in radiation safety, and then posttested immediately after the course and then 6 months later.(More)
The recent utilization of the axillo-axillary bypass graft for revascularization of proximal subclavian or innominate artery occlusions has proved to be a successful operation, technically simple with a low operative morbidity. We have reviewed the reported experience to date and have added our experience of nine additional cases. The procedure has produced(More)
Most patients with chronic duodenal ulcer (DU) craters have gastritis associated with Helicobacter pylori (HP), now thought to be the major cause of DU. A smaller proportion of DU patients have no detectable HP. In this study, we examined the frequency and causes of HP-negative duodenal ulcers. In 302 consecutive patients with endoscopic diagnosis of(More)
