Prevalence of Barrett's esophagus in the general population: an endoscopic study.
Alcohol and smoking were significant risk factors for the prevalence of Barrett's esophagus in an adult Swedish population and the prevalence in the general population was found to be 1.6% of the general Swedish population. Expand
Endoscopic submucosal dissection: European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) Guideline.
The majority of colonic and rectal superficial lesions can be effectively removed in a curative way by standard polypectomy and/or by EMR, and ESGE recommends ESD as treatment of choice for most gastric superficial neoplastic lesions. Expand
High prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux symptoms and esophagitis with or without symptoms in the general adult Swedish population: A Kalixanda study report
GERS and EE (of which one-third is asymptomatic) are highly prevalent in the Swedish adult population and H. pylori infection seems to play a role in the manifestations of gastroesophageal reflux. Expand
Chromoscopy-guided endomicroscopy increases the diagnostic yield of intraepithelial neoplasia in ulcerative colitis.
Endomicroscopy based on in vivo histology can determine if UC lesions identified by chromoscopy should undergo biopsy examination, thereby increasing the diagnostic yield and reducing the need for biopsy examinations. Expand
Prospective Follow-Up Data from the ProGERD Study Suggest that GERD Is Not a Categorial Disease
Progression and regression between grades was observed in this large cohort of patients under routine clinical care and gastroesophageal reflux disease does not seem to be a categorial disease. Expand
European consensus on the histopathology of inflammatory bowel disease.
The European Crohn's and Colitis Organisation and the European Society of Pathology jointly elaborated a consensus to establish standards for histopathology diagnosis in IBD based on the highest level of evidence available, but significant gaps remain in certain areas. Expand
Nonpolypoid neoplastic lesions of the colorectal mucosa.
Cholesterol glucosylation promotes immune evasion by Helicobacter pylori
A mechanism regulating the host–pathogen interaction whereby glucosylation of a lipid tips the scales towards immune evasion or response is proposed, which corroborates the importance of cholesteryl glucosides for escaping phagocytosis, T cell activation and bacterial clearance in vivo. Expand
Confocal laser endoscopy for diagnosing intraepithelial neoplasias and colorectal cancer in vivo.
Confocal laser endoscopy is a novel diagnostic tool to analyze living cells during colonoscopy, thereby enabling virtual histology of neoplastic changes with high accuracy and may be of crucial importance in clinical practice. Expand
TH9 cells that express the transcription factor PU.1 drive T cell–mediated colitis via IL-9 receptor signaling in intestinal epithelial cells
The findings suggest that the TH9 subset of helper T cells serves an important role in driving ulcerative colitis by regulating intestinal epithelial cells and that TH9 cells represent a likely target for the treatment of chronic intestinal inflammation. Expand
