U.S. medical scientists say they've determined chronic inflammation can cause stomach cancer -- the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the world. The multi-center research team led by Columbia University Medical Center said it discovered, for the first time, that elevated levels of a single pro-inflammatory cytokine, an immune system protein called IL-1 Beta, can start the progression towards stomach cancer. The scientists said they hope their finding will lead to development of ways...

By Sepulveda, Antonia R Patil, Madhavi Context.-Most types of gastritis can be diagnosed on hematoxylin- eosin stains. The most common type of chronic gastritis is Helicobacter pylori gastritis. Reactive or chemical gastropathy, which is often associated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug use or bile reflux, is common in most practices. The diagnosis of atrophic gastritis can be challenging if few biopsy samples are available and if the location of the biopsies in the stomach is not...

By Chaudhry, A S Kochhar, R; Kohli, K K Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are extensively metabolized in the liver by CYP2C19, that demonstrates genetic polymorphism with 21 mutant alleles. The subjects can be divided into 2 groups with respect to CYP2C19 phenotypes viz., extensive metabolizers (EMs) and poor metabolizers (PMs) of PPIs. This division results in marked interindividual variations in the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of PPIs in the population. Intragastric pH values and...

LAKEVILLE-MIDDLEBORO, Mass., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- New research suggests that cranberry juice can be as effective as probiotics in maintaining good digestive health. The double-blind trial at the University of Chile found a regular 6.8 oz. serving of 25% cranberry juice was as effective as the probiotic studied in suppressing growth of H. pylori among asymptomatic children. The study also showed the potential for an increased benefit when cranberry and probiotics are combined. "This...

U.S. Researchers reported on Tuesday that a type of bacteria only recently revealed as a major cause of ulcers and stomach cancer may help protect children from developing asthma. Helicobacter pylori, a bacterium that has co-existed with humans for at least 50,000 years, may lead to peptic ulcers and stomach cancer, but children between the ages of 3 and 13 who carried the bug were 59 percent less likely to have asthma than uninfected children, they reported. "Our findings suggest that...

By Ehrenberg, Rachel Scientists look at exhaled compounds to diagnose ills Scientists would like to take your breath away. Literally. Exhaled vapor holds clues to your health, revealing much more than what you ate for lunch. In recent years, researchers have been scrutinizing the misty mixture of molecules with fervor, seeking evidence of conditions ranging from sleep apnea to cancer. Breath can also reveal exposure to pollutants such as benzene and chloroform, providing a measure of...

Holds promise for treating stomach ulcersMassachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) biologists have provoked soil-dwelling bacteria into producing a new type of antibiotic by pitting them against another strain of bacteria in a battle for survival.The antibiotic holds promise for treatment of Helicobacter pylori, which causes stomach ulcers in humans. Also, figuring out the still murky explanation for how the new antibiotic was produced could help scientists develop strategies for finding...

Helicobacter pylori is a Gram-negative, microaerophilic bacterium that can inhabit various areas of the stomach, particularly the antrum. It causes low-level inflammation of the stomach lining and is linked to gastric ulcers and stomach cancer. Out of those infected, 80%, are asymptomatic. It was initially named Campyloacter pyloridis and then renamed C. pylori to correct the Latin grammar error. It was later placed in the genus, Helicobacter. Over 50% of the population has H. pylori in...
