Helicobacter pylori is a risk factor for gastric and duodenal ulcers, but gastric ulcers generally occur in individuals who have low acid production and diffuse gastritis, whereas duodenal ulcers are more likely to occur with high acid output and antrum-predominant gastritis. Low acid production, gastritis, and ulcer healing each contribute to poor antioxidant absorption, oxidative stress, and elevated nitrite levels in the stomach. N-Nitrosamines are known carcinogens, and nitrate ingestion… Expand
Gastric and duodenal ulcers, periodontal disease, and risk of bladder cancer in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study
TLDR
A prospective analysis among 45,185 men in the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study did not find sufficient evidence for interaction between gastric/duodenal ulcers and periodontal disease on bladder cancer risk. Expand
Gastric and Duodenal Ulcer and Risk of Bladder Cancer
To the Editors: In the Health Professional Follow-up Study, Michaud et al. ([1][1]) found a 55% increased risk of bladder cancer for subjects with a history of gastric ulcer. Previous epidemiologicExpand
Exposure to Ranitidine and Risk of Bladder Cancer: A Nested Case-Control Study.
TLDR
The use of ranitidine particularly long-term use was associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer, and further studies are necessary to attempt to replicate this finding in other settings. Expand
Risk of Cancer Following the Use of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) Contaminated Ranitidine Products: A Nationwide Cohort Study in South Korea
TLDR
There is no evidence that exposure to NDMA through ranitidine increases the risk of cancer, and no significant differences were observed in the analysis of 11 single cancer outcomes. Expand
Oral intake of ranitidine increases urinary excretion of N-nitrosodimethylamine.
TLDR
A need to evaluate the risks attributable to NDMA associated with chronic consumption of ranitidine, and to identify alternative treatments that minimize exposure to N-nitrosamines, is suggested. Expand
Nitrate accumulation in plants, factors affecting the process, and human health implications. A review
TLDR
The risk to human health due to nitrate consumption may be minimized by harvesting vegetables at noon, removal of organs rich in nitrate content and cooking of vegetables in water with a low nitrates content. Expand
Factors Responsible for Nitrate Accumulation: A Review
TLDR
The risk to human health due to nitrate consumption may be minimized by harvesting vegetables in the noon, removal of organs rich in nitrate content and cooking of vegetables with water having a low nitrate Content. Expand

Peptic-ulcer disease
TLDR
Evidence suggests that prescription of NSAIDs along with potent antiulcer agents and the use of highly selective cyclo-oxygenase-2 inhibitors reduce gastroduodenal ulceration and whether these therapeutic advances will translate into clinical benefits remains to be seen. Expand
Chronic atrophic gastritis, gastric pH, nitrites and micronutrient levels in a population at risk for gastric carcinoma.
TLDR
The study showed a higher level of pH (greater than 4) and high nitrites in gastric juice in patients with chronic atrophic gastritis, gastric malignant and dysplastic lesions and neither the hypochlorhydria nor gastric nitrites affected the prevalence of C. pylori in Gastric mucosa. Expand
Micronutrient antioxidants in gastric mucosa and serum in patients with gastritis and gastric ulcer: does Helicobacter pylori infection affect the mucosal levels?
TLDR
In patients with gastritis, alpha-tocopherol levels were reduced in serum and mucosa irrespective of H. pylori status, whereas carotenoids and ascorbic acid levels were similar to controls, and depletion in antioxidants seems to be a nonspecific response and was not related to H. Pylori infection. Expand
Mutagenic activity in gastric juice and urine of subjects with chronic atrophic gastritis, gastric epithelial dysplasia and gastric cancer.
TLDR
Gastric juice and urine samples from consecutive patients who underwent endoscopy for upper GI tract complaints were examined and no correlation was however found between gastric mutagen levels and urinary mutagen excretion in the individuals examined. Expand
Current peptic ulcer time trends. An epidemiological profile.
TLDR
Current time trends for peptic ulcers are examined, finding that duodenal and gastric ulcer death rates have remained fairly constant since 1979 and hospitalizations for uncomplicated cases continue to decline, but there has been no decrease in cases with complications. Expand
Interaction of Helicobacter pylori (Hp) and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) on gastric mucosa and risk of ulcerations.
TLDR
The results support the concept that the interaction between Hp infection and NSAID on gastro-duodenal ulcerations is antagonistic, and there is no need for the Hp eradication in NSAID-treated patients, as the rate of ulcer complications remains constant despite the decrease in Hp and ulcer prevalence. Expand
Gastric antioxidant, nitrites, and mucosal lipoperoxidation in chronic gastritis and Helicobacter pylori infection.
TLDR
Chronic gastritis and H. pylori infection correlate with increased free-radical production, reduced gastric vitamin C levels, and increased glutathione turnover, and the possible implications of these changes in the pathogenesis of gastric damage and in carcinogenesis are intriguing. Expand
Peptic ulcer disease
TLDR
In the final paragraph of that classical volume, "Peptic Ulcer" (1) published in 1951, three of the most eminent gastrointestinal physicians, namely A. C. Ivy, Morton Grossman and William Bachrach, predicted that "future research will reveal orally-active innocuous substances for specifically preventing the formation of acid by the parietal cells and/or rendering the gastric and duodenal mucosa less susceptible to injury". Expand
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and bladder cancer prevention
TLDR
There were clear differences in both the direction and strength of the associations between the different formulation classes of analgesics and bladder cancer risk, andetic acids seemed to exhibit the strongest protective effect, whereas aspirin/other salicylic acids and oxicam showed the weakest protection.
