BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The Helicobacter pylori eradication rate using conventional triple therapy has decreased due to clarithromycin (CAM) resistance in H. pylori. Recently, dual priming oligonucleotide (DPO)-based multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) can be used to detect H. pylori and point mutations in the 23S ribosomal RNA gene causing CAM resistance. This study aimed to evaluate the success rate and cost-effectiveness of tailored H. pylori eradication using DPO-PCR. METHODS: The H...

BACKGROUND/AIM: To develop a scoring method using with common clinical data for predicting hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) development after SVR 24 weeks (SVR24) after treatment with direct acting antivirals (DAAs), we retrospectively evaluated clinical features of patients who obtained SVR24. METHODS: From October 2014 to December 2017, 1069 HCV patients without a past history of HCC, who obtained SVR24 by DAAs at 2 different areas, were enrolled [the training (n=484, ChuShikoku-group) and validation (n=585, Chubu-group) sets]...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Gastrointestinal (GI) diseases account for substantial morbidity, mortality and health care utilization. This public hospital based study assessed the incidence and time trend of hospitalization and mortality of major GI diseases over one decade. METHODS: We conducted an observational study using population-wide database managed by the Hong Kong Hospital Authority with a principal diagnosis of GI diseases defined by ICD-9-CM coding. We measured age-standardized incidence of hospitalization, emergency admissions, multiple admissions and in-hospital mortality from 2005 to 2014 using Poisson regression...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Clinical syndromes associated with biallelic mutations of bile acid (BA) transporters usually present in childhood. Subtle mutations may underlie intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) and oral contraceptive steroid(OCS)-induced cholestasis. In 5 women with identified genetic mutations of such transporters, with 8 observed pregnancies complicated by ICP, we examined relationships between transporter mutations, clinical phenotypes and treatment outcomes. METHODS: Gene mutation analysis for BA transporter deficiencies was performed using Next Generation/Sanger sequencing, with analysis for gene deletions/duplications...

AIMS: To better define the relationship between IBS and psychiatric disorders and to examine the efficacy of paroxetine in the treatment of IBS patients. METHODS: 150 subjects with diagnosis of IBS (Roma III criteria) and relative sub-classification (constipated, diarrhea and mixed) were assessed for psychopathological features and gastrointestinal symptoms using IBS Symptom Severity Score and were consecutively enrolled. Fifty patients assumed paroxetine for 16 weeks and were longitudinally evaluated...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: A proper colonoscopy referral criterion is essential for flexible sigmoidoscopy (FS) based colorectal cancer (CRC) screening. We aimed to compare the predictive capability of four existing criteria to detect proximal neoplasia (PN) and advanced proximal neoplasia (APN) in a Chinese population. METHODS: Asymptomatic Chinese participants aged 50-75 years, who received screening colonoscopy, were consecutively recruited. The four criteria, included: (1) UK FS; (2) Italian Screening for COlon REctum; (3) NORwegian Colorectal Cancer Prevention trial; (4) US clinical index...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Fecal immunochemical test (FIT) is used in colorectal cancer (CRC) screening, but number of tests and cut-off level differ by program. The aim was to evaluate CRC-screening with two FIT samples in average-risk 60-year-old men and women, and to investigate Hemoglobin (Hb) level in correlation to adenoma characteristics. METHODS: We analyzed a cohort from SCREESCO (Screening of Swedish Colons) trial where participants with at least one of two FIT samples ≥10μgHb/g are offered colonoscopy...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Noninvasive fibrosis indices can predict the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB). Modified FIB-4 (mFIB-4) is a promising noninvasive index for predicting liver fibrosis. To investigate the predictive accuracy of several extant noninvasive fibrosis indices, including mFIB-4, for HCC incidence in CHB patients receiving long-term entecavir therapy. METHODS: We enrolled 1325 nucleos (t)ide-analogue-naïve CHB patients (noncirrhotic 844; cirrhotic 481) treated with entecavir...

OBJECTIVES: This randomized control trial was undertaken to assess efficacy and safety of fixed dose combination of drotaverine hydrochloride (80mg) and paracetamol (PCM) (500mg). This was done by comparison of mean pain intensity difference (mPID), total pain relief at 2 hours (TOTPAR2), onset of pain relief, decrease in number of pain episodes, global improvement and adverse effects. METHODS: A randomized double blind controlled trial for adults between 18-59 years of either gender with acute infectious diarrhea (≥3 unformed, watery or soft, stools with symptoms at-least within last 24 hours preceding randomization with duration of illness not more than 72 hours) with moderate to severe abdominal pain...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: The high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) protein plays an important role in a lot of biological behaviors, including DNA damage repair, gene transcription, cell replication and cell death and its expression is higher in many solid tumors tissues than in their adjacent normal tissues, and it is always involved in tumor proliferation, metastasis, therapeutic tolerance, and poor prognosis. However, HMGB1 in proliferation and radioresistance of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) remains poorly understood...

BACKGROUND/AIM: The diagnosis of celiac disease autoimmune pathology relies on the subjective histological assignment of biopsies into Marsh score categories. It is hypothesized that Marsh score categories have unique gene expression signatures. The aims were first, to develop a CD quantitative RT-PCR array; second define gene expression signatures associated with Marsh score categories and third, develop equations that classify biopsies into Marsh score categories and to monitor the efficacy of patient treatment...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Metformin has been shown to have anti-cytokine property. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS)- or repeated water avoidance stress (WAS)-induced visceral allodynia and increased gut permeability were proinflammatory cytokine-dependent responses, which were considered to be animal models of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). We hypothesized that metformin improves symptoms in the patients with IBS by attenuating these visceral changes and tested the hypothesis in rats. METHODS: The threshold of the visceromotor response (VMR) induced by colonic balloon distention was measured...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Delayed gastric emptying occurs in more than 50% of chronic diabetic patients and this is associated with significant impairments in quality of life. Traditional therapy for delayed gastric emptying has focused on supportive treatment and there is no significant effective therapy. The effect of low-energy shockwave on gastric motility is never studied. We investigated low-energy shockwave on gastric motility in a diabetic rat model. METHODS: Twenty-eight male Wistar rats were studied and separated in three groups in randomized order as: control, diabetic rats received shockwave, and diabetic rats received the sham procedure...
