BACKGROUND: Although both eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) and Barrett's esophagus (BE) are considered to be associated with T helper (Th) 2-mediated immune responses, the association between EoE and BE is unclear. We investigated the clinical relationship between EoE and BE. METHODS: We conducted a single-center retrospective observational study. The study included 95 patients with EoE and randomly selected age- and sex-matched controls who underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy during a medical health check-up at Osaka City University in a ratio of 1:2 for comparison...

REVIEW
Oya Yucel
Interactions between Helicobacter Pylori (HP) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) are a complex issue. Several pathophysiological factors influence the development and the course of GERD, HP infection might be only one of these. Many studies emphasize the co-existence of these diseases. HP infection could contribute to GERD through both a protective and an aggressive role. Gastric acid secretion is a key factor in the pathophysiology of reflux esophagitis. Depending on the type of gastritis related to HP, acid secretion may either increase or decrease...

BACKGROUND: Esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) is frequently found on the right-anterior wall of the distal esophagus in short-segment Barrett's esophagus (SSBE) patients. However, the endoscopic characteristics of EAC in cases with long-segment BE (LSBE) and squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) in the lower esophagus remain to be fully evaluated. Here, we determined the circumferential distribution and clinical characteristics of esophageal cancer occurring in the lower esophagus based on histological subtype...

PURPOSE: Oral mucositis (OM) is one of the most uncomfortable adverse events experienced by cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. Previous reports have revealed that the oral administration of an elemental diet (ED) may prevent OM. However, the incidence of OM has not been accurately determined by specialized diagnostic methods and the effects of an ED on OM remain unclear. We investigated the dose that could feasibly be administered and its effects with regard to the suppression of OM in esophageal cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy...
