Opisthorchis viverrini is remains a public health problem in Thailand, particularly in the northeast and north regions which have the highest incidences of chonalgiocarcinoma (CCA). O. viverrini causes the disease opithorchiasis, and its has been classified as a group 1 biological carcinogen. Humans, dogs, and cats become infected with O. viverrini by(More)
The Mini Parasep SF fecal parasite concentrator (MPSFC) is a new modification of the closed concentration system, which can easily be adopted in any routine clinical pathology laboratory. Here we describe our experience with the system in diagnosing Opisthorchis viverrini. A total of 199 fecal samples was submitted for routine examination in the clinical(More)
BACKGROUND Helicobacter pylori infection and premalignant gastric mucosa can be reliably identified using conventional narrow band imaging (C-NBI) gastroscopy. The aim of our study was to compare standard biopsy with site specific biopsy for diagnosis of H. pylori infection and premalignant gastric mucosa in daily clinical practice. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
Background and Aim. Risk factors for Helicobacter pylori infection are genetic susceptibility and poor living conditions. This study aimed to investigate the Mdm2 gene, clarithromycin resistance, and possible risk factors for Helicobacter pylori infection. Methods. Risk factors and clinical characteristics were analyzed, including patient demographic data,(More)
BACKGROUND Colorectal polyps are common in Thailand, particularly in the northeastern region. The present study aimed to determine any correlation between Helicobacter pylori-associated gastritis and colorectal polyps in the Thai population. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 303 patients undergoing esophagogastroduodenoscopy with colonoscopy for(More)
BACKGROUND Helicobacter pylori is now recognized as a causative factor of chronic gastritis, gastroduodenal ulcers, gastric cancer and mucosaassociated lymphatic tissue lymphoma. Tolllike receptors are important bacterial receptors in gastric epithelial cell signaling transduction and play critical roles in gastric carcinogenesis. MATERIALS AND METHODS A(More)
From 1997 to 1998 the first series of 21 patients with large biliary tract stones (1.5-4.0 cm with average 2.5 cm in diameter) who underwent endoscopic stone extraction by using combination of ERCP and EST with automatic stone-tissue detection pulse dye laser was carried out. Male = 8, Female = 13, average age = 57.5 years (32-83) most of the stones were(More)
BACKGROUND There are many palliative treatments for patients with unresectable malignant biliary obstruction, e.g. endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with stents, percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) or surgery. We propose a new technique by using endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) with fluoroscopy to perform hepaticogastrostomy for(More)
Opisthorchis viverrini infection is associated with cholangiocarcinoma particularly in the cases of chronic or re-infection. This presents a serious health problem in northeastern and northern Thailand. A community base approach is required for surveillance. Therefore, in a pilot project, re-examination of O. viverrini infection was conducted in the 3(More)
