A close relationship exists between nodular gastritis and Helicobacter pylori infection in children. The pathogenesis and optimal management of nodular gastritis in adults, however, are unclear. This study describes the clinicopathologic features of nodular gastritis in adults and correlates treatment with outcome. Of 97,262 adult patients who underwent(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine whether a combination of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization using doxorubicin and radiofrequency ablation can increase tumor destruction compared with radiofrequency alone in the treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma. SUBJECTS AND METHODS. Twenty-one patients with 26 nodules smaller than 3 cm in(More)
As an attempt to approach the pathogenesis of peptic ulcer disease, antral gastrin and somatostatin concentrations were studied in normal subjects, patients with duodenal ulcer and gastric ulcer. In the patients with peptic ulcer, antral somatostatin concentrations were significantly lower than those in normal subjects. In non-ulcer subjects, including(More)
The basal serum gastrin concentration and stimulated gastric acid secretion (MAO) were measured in 837 patients at Hiroshima University Hospital. The basal serum gastrin concentration was significantly higher in males than females in the control group (normal and atrophic gastritis) and it was similar in patients with duodenal (DU) and gastric ulcer (GU),(More)
Somatostatin in gastric juice was determined in normal subjects and patients with duodenal ulcer. Gel exclusion chromatography of gastric juice revealed that the main immunoreactivity existed at the position of somatostatin-14. A large amount of somatostatin was present in gastric juice, and the quantity increased following tetragastrin stimulation.(More)
Aging and smoking are known to promote atrophic gastritis (AG) and intestinal metaplasia (IM). This study investigated the relationship between Helicobacter pylori (Hp) infection, aging, smoking, and AG/IM. Ninety-six Hp-negative and 231 Hp-positive subjects were divided according to age; (≤39 years, 40–59 years, and ≥60 years) and smoking history (never(More)
The effects of changes in diet on antral gastrin-like immunoreactivities and antral and corporal somatostatin-like immunoreactivities were studied in three groups of young male rats. Group 1 rats were weaned physiologically, group 2 rats received only breast milk, and group 3 rats were fed milk until 20 days of age and then were switched abruptly to(More)
A 83-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with a large hepatic tumor located in lateral segment. Alpha-fetoprotein was 7ng/ml, and protein induced by vitamin K deficiency and antagonist-II (PIVKA-II) was 50792mAU/ml. The tumor was diagnosed as hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) by angiographically assisted CT. No ascites was detected and major serological(More)
