We investigated the effect of nutritional therapy with an elemental diet (ED) for active Crohn's disease. One hundred and thirty-nine patients with Crohn's disease were enrolled in this study. Remission was judged to be present when the International Organization of Inflammatory Bowel Disease score was < or = 1 and the CRP and ESR values were within the(More)
We investigated the eradication and recurrence rate of Helicobacter pylori-infected gastric ulcer patients by combination therapies. Eighty-six H. pylori-positive gastric ulcer patients were assigned randomly to one of seven groups: I, omeprazole 20 mg (n = 9); II, lansoprazole (LPZ) 30 mg (n = 16); III, LPZ 30 mg plus plaunotol 480 mg (n = 13); IV, LPZ 30(More)
It is important to study the effect of Helicobacter pylori infection on the permeability of the intestine. Permeability was evaluated by oral sucrose tolerance test using sucrose 25 g in 200 ml of water. Existence of H. pylori itself was associated with increased permeability of sucrose. Also, the permeability of sucrose increased as polymorphonuclear and(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of plaunotol in combination with proton-pump inhibitors on Helicobacter pylori eradication in patients with gastric ulcer. PATIENTS AND METHODS We studied 65 H. pylori-positive gastric ulcer patients. They were randomly assigned to five treatment groups: omeprazole (group I, n = 8), lansoprazole (group II, n = 13),(More)
Although peptic ulcer frequently recurs in the presence of Helicobacter pylori infection, the effects of H. pylori on ulcer healing have yet to be studied in detail. Using an animal model, we examined the effects of H. pylori infection on the healing of peptic ulcer in Japanese macaques. Forty-four Japanese macaques, aged 5 years, were randomly divided into(More)
We investigated the effects of omeprazole or lansoprazole on peptic ulcer healing, eradication of Helicobacter pylori (Hp) and abdominal symptoms. A prospective, randomized study was performed for the administration of omeprazole or lansoprazole. Hp-positive peptic ulcer patients (n = 86) were randomly assigned to two groups. Gastric ulcer patients received(More)
The absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of 2-chloro-11-(2-dimethylaminoethoxy)dibenzo [b,f]thiepine (zotepine), a new neuroleptic agent, were investigated in rat, mouse, dog and man. Zotepine was absorbed rapidly and almost completely from the gastrointestinal tract in all species after oral dosing. The serum level of the unchanged drug in(More)
Although hematopoietic growth factors influence renewal and differentiation of blast progenitors in acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), morphological maturation of leukemic blasts is thought a rare event, even when cultured in the presence of appropriate growth stimulants. However, light microscopic observation may not be sufficient to clarify precisely the(More)
