BACKGROUND AND AIMS: MicroRNA-1254 (miR-1254) has not been studied in colorectal cancer (CRC) to date. In the current study, we investigate the inhibitory mechanism of miR-1254 in CRC tumorigenesis. METHODS: Differential miR-1254 expression was examined using real-time-PCR in CRC and control tissues. Whether miR-1254 levels correlated with colon adenocarcinoma cell proliferation and migration was determined using the CCK-8 and transwell assays. RNA sequencing was used to identify differentially expressed genes downstream of miR-1254...

REVIEW
Xinyan Zhu, Fei Liu
Over 80% population with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection is asymptomatic. H. pylori was considered as a primary reason for various natural gastric physiopathology. Increased antibiotic resistance and less medication compliance lead to the failure of antibiotic eradication therapy. Probiotics have been applied as a supplementary treatment in H. pylori eradication therapy in recent years. They have direct and indirect inhibitory effects on H. pylori in both animal models and clinical trials. Because of the improvement in eradication rates and therapy-related side effects, probiotics have been considered as the useful supplementation to current eradication therapy although the treatment outcomes were controversial due to the heterogeneity of probiotics in species, strains, doses and therapeutic duration...

AIMS: Long-term acid suppression lowers the risk of progression to esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) in patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE). With the recent reports about harmful effects of chronic proton pump inhibitor (PPI) use, there is renewed interest about alternative methods of acid suppression. Hence, our aim was to study the effect of H2 receptor antagonists (H2RA) on the risk of progression to neoplasia in our BE cohort. METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data of patients in our BE Registry from 2002 to 2015...

Esophageal tuberculosis is rare, even in countries with high prevalence of tuberculosis. It usually presents as an ulcerative lesion on conventional endoscopy. Due to its rarity, when esophageal tuberculosis presents as a subepithelial lesion (SEL), conventional endoscopy and other imaging modalities such as computed tomography (CT) are often insufficient to distinguish it from other diseases. From January 2007 to December 2014, 1094 patients who underwent endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) were retrospectively analyzed...

Initially, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) was developed to inspect the pancreas and other organs adjacent to the gastrointestinal tract. After introduction of curvilinear-array echoendoscopes, EUS has been used for a variety of interventions in gastroenterology including fine needle aspiration, pancreatobiliary drainage, and tumor ablation. EUS-guided ablation of pancreatic cystic tumor with ethanol and with or without cytotoxic agents has been studied in many clinical trials and showed potential to become an alternative to surgery...

Endotipsitis is a broad term used to describe sustained and clinically significant bacteremia or fungemia from a suspected vegetation or thrombus within the transjugular intrahepatic portosytemic shunt (TIPS) device. Endotipsitis is a rare infection in post-TIPS patients and given the diagnostic challenges, there is a need to establish formal diagnostic criteria. Bacterial causes of endotipsitis have been well documented in the literature, but few fungal-associated etiologies have been published to date. With this paucity of data, treatment strategies are lacking regarding the role of antifungal duration, the aggressiveness of medical therapy, and the role of liver transplantation...

We report the use of balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration (BRTO) for portosystemic shunt in one patient, resulting in marked improvements in residual liver function and enabling safe hepatitis C virus (HCV) elimination with direct-acting antiviral agents. A woman undergoing outpatient treatment at our institution for HCV-related cirrhosis with a history of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) treatment developed hepatic encephalopathy (HE; Child-Pugh score 8) at age 65 years. Improvement was obtained with conservative treatment; however, contrast-enhanced computed tomography revealed a splenorenal shunt with decreased portal vein blood flow...

The incidence and prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) show considerable variation over time and across geographic regions. The first studies on the epidemiology of IBD were available mainly from traditionally high-incidence areas, as North America and Northern and Western Europe. In the last two decades, more and more data have been reported from Eastern European and Asian counties with increasing incidence rates from some regions. According to recent studies, the high incidence and prevalence of IBD in some Western countries is plateauing and in some Eastern countries increasing incidence rates have been reported...

BACKGROUND: The rate of rebleeding from peptic ulcers could differ between Asian and Western populations. AIM: To determine whether the observed twofold difference in rebleeding rates in two similarly designed clinical trials (one in Hong Kong [n=240], the other in a multinational Western population [n=764, http://ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00251979]) can be explained by differences in baseline patient characteristics. METHODS: Two-factor and multifactor analyses (adjusted by demographics, established risk factors for peptic ulcer and peptic ulcer bleeding, and disease severity variables) were performed using pooled data from the two studies...
