OBJECTIVE: Introduction: The pathogenesis of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a topical issue of modern gastroenterology. There are a number of scientific papers on changes in the qualitative and quantitative composition of saliva, which triggers a cascade of biochemical reactions, the consequence of which is the destruction of the resistance of the mucous membrane of the esophagus. Calcium is a macro element that provides the normal functioning of cells. Parathormone also regulates the metabolism of calcium in the body...

GOALS: To validate cut-off values of CD3 T-cell receptor gamma-delta chain (TCRγδ) intraepithelial lymphocyte (IEL) in the (differential) diagnosis of celiac disease (CD). BACKGROUND: CD is characterized by an increase in gamma-delta IEL (CD3TCRγδ IEL). STUDY: Percentages were determined by flow cytometric analysis of IELs from small bowel biopsies in 213 CD and 13 potential CD (PCD) patients and in total 112 controls. A cut-off value for percentages of CD3TCRγδ IEL to differentiate active CD and controls was obtained from a receiver operating characteristic curve and implemented in controls and PCD patients...

An unexpected human outbreak of the mosquitoborne Sindbis virus occurred in a previously nonendemic area of Sweden. At follow-up, 6-8 months after infection, 39% of patients had chronic arthralgia that affected their daily activities. Vectorborne infections may disseminate rapidly into new areas and cause acute and chronic disease.

Mountain grasslands have recently been exposed to substantial changes in land use and climate and in the near future will likely face an increased frequency of extreme droughts. To date, how the drought responses of carbon (C) allocation, a key process in the C cycle, are affected by land-use changes in mountain grassland is not known.We performed an experimental summer drought on an abandoned grassland and a traditionally managed hay meadow and traced the fate of recent assimilates through the plant-soil continuum...

In Italy high-quality vines are sometimes grown in small fields with slope steeper than 5-10%, where an air-blast sprayer is impractical so spray-gun application of pesticides is used, a technique that is very costly and labour intensive, and that causes high pesticide exposure of the operators. A possible alternative is the use of a fixed spraying system, and the first researches are in progress in Italy. A fixed spraying system prototype was built in a vineyard at Laimburg Research Centre with an upper line with micro-sprinkler and a lower line with cooler-type nozzles, and a trial was performed with the aim of measuring the deposition pattern of droplets on the row and between rows with water sensitive papers, also in comparison with a precise low-drift air-blast sprayer...

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a common disorder, known to affect about 20% of the Western population. Although conventional medical or surgical treatment has proven effective, there is certainly room for improvements. As only 10% of GERD patients are finally treated by antireflux surgery, a large therapeutic window exists. This treatment gap consists of patients who are not effectively treated with proton pump inhibitor but do not want to run the potential risks of conventional surgery. During the last two decades, several novel and intriguing options for the surgical treatment of GERD have been introduced and found their way into clinical use...

BACKGROUND: Cough and sputum production (symptoms of bronchitis) are common in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Extrapulmonary comorbidities, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and post-nasal drip, also cause bronchitis symptoms. The impact of extrapulmonary comorbidities on the severity of bronchitis symptoms in COPD is unknown. The aim of this study was to quantify bronchitis symptoms and assess the impact of GERD and nasal symptoms on the severity of bronchitis symptoms in COPD...

Considered as a chronic illness, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) has manifested itself as a widespread condition throughout the adult population. As a growing epidemic, GERD has reached a staggering prevalence of 10% to 20% in the Western world, by affecting up to 30 million people in the United States alone. Sixty percent of individuals in an adult population will experience symptoms and the impact of GERD over a period of 12 months, whereas a remarkable 20% to 30% of individuals will have weekly symptoms...

Many biochemical processes are involved in regulating the consecutive transition of different phases of dormancy in sweet cherry buds. An evaluation based on a metabolic approach has, as yet, only been partly addressed. The aim of this work, therefore, was to determine which plant metabolites could serve as biomarkers for the different transitions in sweet cherry buds. The focus here was on those metabolites involved in oxidation-reduction processes during bud dormancy, as determined by targeted and untargeted mass spectrometry-based methods...

Although the prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) used to be lower in East Asia as compared to Western countries, it has recently been increasing, most likely due to the socioeconomic development in the East. The prevalence of both GERD and functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) ranges between 10% and 25% worldwide and there are distinct subgroups of patients with overlapping of GERD and FGIDs. However, the true prevalence of an overlap between GERD and FGIDs can be determined only when a formal pathophysiological evaluation has been performed...

Reflux esophagitis is an important clinical diagnosis; however, the histologic findings can be nonspecific and overlap with other entities. Various benign changes can produce diagnostic difficulties for pathologists. In this review, the typical histologic findings of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) of the esophagus are discussed, along with the issues relating to clinical correlation and technical aspects of endoscopic biopsies and specimen processing. The literature has been reviewed to discuss histologic definitions of GERD as well as current and developing controversies in the area of GERD...

Many domains of human behavior are based on multisensory representations. Knowledge about the principles of multisensory integration is useful to configure real-time movement information for the online support of perceptuomotor processes (motor perception, control, and learning). A powerful method for generating real-time information is movement sonification. Remarkable evidence exists on movement-acoustic real-time information being effective in behavioral domains (music training, motor rehabilitation, sports)...

Identification of hot spots of land degradation is strongly related with the selection of soil tracers for sediment pathways. This research proposes the complementary and integrated application of two analytical techniques to select the most suitable fingerprint tracers for identifying the main sources of sediments in an agricultural catchment located in Central Argentina with erosive loess soils. Diffuse reflectance Fourier transformed in the mid-infrared range (DRIFT-MIR) spectroscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) were used for a suitable fingerprint selection...
