Individuals with common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) have an increased risk of gastric cancer, and gastrointestinal lymphoma, yet screening for premalignant gastric lesions is rarely offered routinely to these patients. Proposed screening protocols are not widely accepted and are based on gastric cancer risk factors that are not applicable to all CVID patients. Fifty-two CVID patients were recruited for screening gastroscopy irrespective of symptoms or blood results and were compared to 40 controls presenting for gastroscopy for other clinical indications...

BACKGROUND: Helicobacter pylori is a major aetiologic agent associated with gastritis. H. pylori infections increase the expression of the Toll-like receptor (TLR), which in turn modulates the expression of microRNA (miRNA)-146a and miRNA-155. The objective of this study was to compare the expression of miRNA-146a and miRNA-155 in gastric lesions of paediatric and adult patients with different pathologies and in Mongolian gerbils (Meriones unguiculatus) infected with H. pylori 26,695...

The characteristics of the gastric microbiota in patients with gastric polyposis (GP) remain unclear. Given this we collected gastric antrum and gastric body biopsies from healthy controls (HC.A and HC.B group) and gastric antrum, gastric body and polyp biopsies from patients with multiple gastric polyps (GP.A, GP.B and GP.P group) for 16S rDNA sequencing. The results showed that the diversity of the gastric flora in the GP group was significantly lower than that of the HC group. The gastric flora composition of the GP group was significantly different from the HC group...

HpaA is considered to be an effective protective antigen for vaccination against Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection. Oral immunization with HpaA significantly decreases bacterial colonization in H. pylori infected mice. In this study, we investigated whether subcutaneous or intranasal immunization with HpaA could protect against H. pylori infection. Mice immunized subcutaneously with HpaA in Complete Freund's adjuvant, but not mice intranasally immunized with HpaA in CpG adjuvant acquired protection against H...

Objective The association between functional dyspepsia (FD) and endoscopic findings has not been fully elucidated. Helicobacter pylori infection is considered a key factor in the pathophysiology of FD. The Kyoto Classification of Gastritis (KCG) was proposed in 2014 to evaluate endoscopic findings based on the H. pylori status. We investigated the endoscopic findings associated with FD according to the KCG. Methods This cross-sectional study included subjects who underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy during a medical health check-up...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Loss of claudin 18 (CLDN18), a membrane-spanning tight junction protein, occurs during early stages of development of gastric cancer and associates with shorter survival times of patients. We investigated whether loss of CLDN18 occurs in mice that develop intraepithelial neoplasia with invasive glands due to infection with Helicobacter pylori, and whether loss is sufficient to promote the development of similar lesions in mice with or without H pylori infection...

Adenylosuccinate synthetase (AdSS) is an enzyme at regulatory point of purine metabolism. In pathogenic organisms which utilise only the purine salvage pathway, AdSS asserts itself as a promising drug target. One of these organisms is Helicobacter pylori, a wide-spread human pathogen involved in the development of many diseases. The rate of H. pylori antibiotic resistance is on the increase, making the quest for new drugs against this pathogen more important than ever. In this context, we describe here the properties of H...

Immune checkpoint inhibitors such as ipilimumab, a cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen-4 inhibitor, have been widely used for advanced malignancies. As these inhibitors improve antitumor immunity via T-cell modulation, immune-mediated adverse events associated with T-cell activation, such as colitis, might occur. Herein, we describe a 75-year-old Japanese woman with metastatic malignant melanoma who developed hemorrhagic gastritis after ipilimumab treatment. There was no macroscopic or clinical improvement of gastritis after proton pump inhibitor treatment...

Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) inhibit H+ , K+ -ATPase, an enzyme which is the final step of gastric acid secretion and is selectively located in the gastric parietal cells. PPIs block the enzyme in a covalent and irreversible binding manner, thus providing better efficacy than previous pharmacological agents such as antacids and histamine H2 receptor antagonists. Although PPIs have been the first-line therapeutic option for acid related diseases (ARDs), there are several limitations to their efficacy, i.e. short half-life in blood, insufficient acid suppression especially at night, necessity of repeated dosages for full action, and large variation in efficacy among patients due to CYP2C19 polymorphism...

With the advent of proton pump inhibitors and H. Pylori treatment, the old dogma "the most common cause of lower GI bleeding is upper GI bleeding" may no longer be valid. We sought to determine the most common causes of GI bleeding in patients without an obvious source and their clinical outcomes. We queried our hospital database for GI hemorrhage during 2015, excluding patients with obvious sources such as hematemesis or anal pathology. We collected data from patients with GI bleeding defined as bright red blood per rectum, melena, or a positive fecal occult blood test...

The drug resistance of Helicobacter pylori ( H. pylori ) is gradually becoming a serious problem. Biofilm formation is an important factor that leads to multidrug resistance in bacteria. The ability of H. pylori to form biofilms on the gastric mucosa is known. However, there are few studies on the regulatory mechanisms of H. pylori biofilm formation and multidrug resistance. Guanosine 3'-diphosphate 5'-triphosphate and guanosine 3',5'-bispyrophosphate [(p)ppGpp] are global regulatory factors and are synthesized in H...

Helicobacter pylori infects the gastric epithelium of half the global population, where infections can persist into adenocarcinomas and peptic ulcers. H. pylori secretes several proteins that lend to its pathogenesis and survival including VacA, CagA, γ-glutamyltransferase and HP0175. HP0175, also known as HpCBF2, classified as a peptidyl-prolyl cis,trans-isomerase, has been shown to induce apoptosis through a cascade of mechanisms initiated though its interaction with toll like receptor 4 (TLR4). Here, we report the structure of apo-HP0175 at 2...
