BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Celiac disease (CD) presents with a wide spectrum of extra-digestive symptoms, including hemorrhagic manifestations. The aim of this review was to conduct an extensive analysis of the hemorrhagic events reported in adult CD patients. METHODS: Case report and review of the literature. Pubmed (MEDLINE) database search from January 1970 onwards was performed using the medical subject headings [MeSH] terms "celiac disease" AND "blood coagulation disorders", "hemorrhage", "hematoma", "hematuria", "hemoptysis", "epistaxis", "hemosiderosis"...

A 41-year-old woman diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary hypertension presented symptoms despite the use of vasodilators, requiring treatment with bosentan. Previously, the patient had no signs of autoimmunity and had normal liver function. After three years of bosentan use, aminotransferase levels increased, without improvement after bosentan suspension, leading to complementary investigation. The diagnosis of autoimmune hepatitis was confirmed by biopsy, already in the stage of cirrhosis. In conclusion, in case of aminotransferase levels that remain persistently elevated, despite the reduction in doses and/or suspension of bosentan, autoimmune hepatitis must be investigated and treated urgently due to possibly rapid progression to cirrhosis...

A 70-year-old man was referred to our hospital with exacerbation of diabetes. His blood tests showed elevated levels of serum IgG4 and HbA1c. Computed tomography of the pancreatic body demonstrated a weakly enhanced mass, 2 cm in size, with indistinct borders. Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography revealed a narrowing of the main pancreatic duct (MPD) at the pancreatic body, a markedly dilated upstream duct, and a slightly dilated downstream duct. Endoscopic ultrasonography demonstrated an iso-hypoechoic heterogeneous mass, protruding and spreading in the pancreatic duct...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Growing evidence has shown that M2-PK is involved in cancer diagnosis and prognosis. The overall diagnostic accuracy of the pyruvate kinase isoenzyme type M2 (M2-PK) in biliary tract carcinoma (BTC) remains controversial. We performed a meta-analysis to evaluate the diagnostic value of M2-PK for BTC. METHODS: The online PubMed, Cochrane, Web of Science, and Embase databases were searched for eligible studies published until August 8th, 2017...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endoscopic ultrasound-guided radiofrequency ablation (EUS-RFA) is a promising technique for the treatment of pancreatic neoplasm. We evaluated the feasibility, safety, and technical success of pancreatic EUS-RFA performed in a single center. METHODS: 9 consecutive patients (8 with pancreatic adenocarcinoma and 1 with renal cancer metastasis) were referred for EUS-RFA between November 2016 and July 2017. EUS-RFA was performed using 18-gauge internally cooled electrode with a 5 or 10 mm exposed tip...

BACKGROUND: Cholangiocarcinoma is a relatively rare cancer that is difficult to diagnose and has a poor prognosis. Currently, knowledge concerning its etiology, tumor localization, and pathological features remains limited. The present study aimed to clarify the clinico-epidemiologic nature of cholangiocarcinoma with its clinical subtypes using the largest regional cancer registry in Japan. METHODS: Using a regional cancer registry in Kanagawa prefecture, Japan, we estimated three-year and five-year survival rates of cholangiocarcinoma patients, who were classified into two groups: intrahepatic (i-CCA) and extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (e-CCA) cases...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Current management of alcoholic liver disease (ALD), especially for alcoholic hepatitis (AH) is still driven by liver biopsy. Therefore, the identification of novel and accurate noninvasive biomarkers for the diagnosis and assessment of severity is important. Metabolomics, because it unravels changes closest to the phenotype, may represent the key for novel biomarkers. The aim of this study was to identify and characterize potential metabolomic biomarkers for diagnosis, staging and severity assessment of ALD...

BACKGROUND: Probiotics have a beneficial effect on nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in animal models. Randomized placebo-controlled trials (RCTs) in NAFLD are still lacking in humans despite a large number of data from animal research. AIM: We performed a double-blind single center RCT of live multi-strain probiotic vs. placebo in type 2 diabetes patients with NAFLD. METHODS: A total of 58 patients met the criteria for inclusion. They were randomly assigned to receive the multi-probiotic "Symbiter" (concentrated biomass of 14 probiotic bacteria genera Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus, Lactococcus, Propionibacterium) or placebo for 8-weeks administered as a sachet formulation in double-blind treatment...

BACKGROUND: Almonds are healthy nutraceuticals, which vary across different cultivars. We compared the composition, agreeability and gastrointestinal effects of two almond cultivars from different areas. METHODS: Californian Carmel (CAcv) and local Apulian Filippo Cea (FCcv) cultivars were compared for the chemical composition and sensory evaluation according to visual analogue and semiquantitative scales in 60 volunteers. Gallbladder/gastric motility (ultrasonography) and orocecal transit time (H2-breath test) were studied in another 24 subjects by comparing the effects of a standard liquid test meal with isovolumetric almond test meals (24 g of CAcv or FCcv almonds)...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Small colorectal polyps may be removed with cold snare polypectomy (CSP). Some of these polyps may contain unexpectedly advanced neoplasia. Thus, it is important to establish criteria for excision that will ensure that the CSP specimens are adequate for accurate histological assessment. We retrospectively investigated depth of excised small polyps and their vertical margins in patients who underwent CSP. METHOD: CSP-excised specimens of 376 small colorectal polyps were examined...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Down-regulation of the growth arrest specific transcript 5 (GAS5) (long non-coding RNA) is associated with cell proliferation of gastric cancer (GC) and a poor prognosis. We aimed to investigate whether the variant rs145204276 of GAS5 is associated with the prognosis of GC in the Chinese population, and to unveil the regulatory mechanism underlying the GAS5 expression in GC tissues. METHOD: 1,253 GC patients and 1,354 healthy controls were included...

AIMS: The aim of the study was to evaluate the rationale of blood pepsinogen (PG) testing in population based screening settings. METHODS: Participants from a cross-sectional population-based study of cardiovascular risk factors in Latvia were invited to participate in the current study. Pepsinogen I and II were measured in blood samples taken during the initial study and at follow-up; upper gastrointestinal endoscopy was performed. There were three groups of patients: with moderately decreased (PG I< 70 ng/ml and PG I/PG II ratio < 3), with strongly decreased (PG I< 30 ng/ml and PG I/PG II ratio < 2), and with normal PG level...
