Although the study of bioequivalence waivers in humans is already well-established, their application and translation into animals, which are complicated by differences in physiology, have only recently become subjects of interest. The main purpose of this paper is to quantify the liquid volume affecting drug dissolution in pig stomachs. We used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to scan 18 Bama miniature pigs weighing 15, 30 or 50 kg. Amira 6.0.1 software was used for 3D image processing. We found that the gastric fluid volume had a linear relationship with the weight of pig (R2 = 0...

We assessed the effect of xanthohumol (XN) on gastric cancer (GC) in vitro and in vivo. XN reduced the viability of SGC-7901, SNU216, and SNU668 cells, but not GES-1 non-tumorigenic human gastric epithelial cells. XN induced apoptosis in SGC-7901 cells in a concentration-dependent manner by enhancing the numbers of late and early apoptotic cells. XN also downregulated the anti-apoptotic proteins Bcl-XL and Bcl-2 and upregulated the pro-apoptotic proteins Bax, Bid, PARP, and caspase-3. XN induced phosphorylation of PI3K, Akt, and mTOR in SGC7901 cells...

Ensuring optimal nutrition is vital in critically ill children and enteral feeding is the main route of delivery in intensive care. Feeding intolerance is the most commonly cited reason amongst pediatric intensive care unit healthcare professionals for stopping or withholding enteral nutrition, yet the definition for this remains inconsistent, nebulous, and entirely arbitrary. Not only does this pose problems clinically, but research in this field frequently uses feeding intolerance as an endpoint and the heterogeneity in this definition makes the comparison of studies difficult and meta-analysis impossible...

Background: The main problem of hospitalized patients in intensive care units is feeding, and if the patient does not receive the daily caloric intake required to his body, he will have malnutrition and problems related to it. Abdominal massage is a method used to improve digestive function in various studies, but few studies have been conducted in intensive care units, and sometimes, contradictory results have been obtained. Therefore, the present study is conducted with the aim of determining the effect of abdominal massage on the gastric residual volume in patients hospitalized in intensive care units...

BACKGROUND: Preoperative fasting is a major cause of perioperative discomfort in paediatric anaesthesia and leads to postoperative insulin resistance, thus potentially enhancing the inflammatory response to surgery. Addressing these problems by preoperative carbohydrate intake has not been a well-defined approach in children. METHODS: We randomised 120 children scheduled for gastroscopy under general anaesthesia to either a control group of standard preoperative fasting or a study group receiving a carbohydrate beverage (PreOp™; Nutricia, Erlangen, Germany)...

BACKGROUND: The paediatric preoperative fasting time of 2 h for clear fluids, as suggested by guidelines, is often exceeded. Shorter preoperative fasting has been proposed to avoid potential outcomes such as dehydration, ketoacidosis, reduced arterial blood pressure, and patient discomfort. The aim of this study was to investigate whether liberal clear fluid intake until premedication significantly reduces actual fasting time and impacts gastric pH and residual volume. METHODS: Children (1-16 yr old, ASA I or II) undergoing elective procedures with general anaesthesia requiring tracheal intubation were randomised for clear fluid intake until premedication with midazolam (liberal) or 2 h fluid fasting (standard)...

Breath analysis is highly acceptable to patients and health care professionals, but its implementation in clinical practice remains challenging. Clinical trials and routine practice require a robust system for collection, storage, and processing of large numbers of samples. This work describes a platform based upon the hyphenation of thermal desorption (TD) with proton transfer reaction time-of-flight mass spectrometry (PTR-ToF-MS), coupled by means of an original modification of the TD interface. The performance of TD-PTR-ToF-MS was tested against seven oxygenated volatile organic compounds (VOCs), belonging to three chemical classes (i...

OBJECTIVES: Current guidelines recommend 6 h of fasting for solids before anaesthesia. However, prolonged fasting may lead to discomfort, hunger, thirst, misbehaviour and lipolysis. To prevent this, a more liberal fasting regimen has been empirically implemented in our children's hospital, allowing a shorter fasting time of 4 h for a standardised light breakfast. AIM: The aim of this study was to determine the gastric emptying time after a standardised light breakfast in healthy children...

PURPOSE: Pathologic response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy is a prognostic factor in many cancer types. However, the existing evaluative criteria are deficient. We sought to prospectively evaluate the total iodine uptake derived from dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) in predicting treatment efficacy and progression-free survival (PFS) time in gastric cancer after neoadjuvant chemotherapy. METHODS: From October 2012 to December 2015, 44 patients with locally advanced gastric cancer were examined with DECT 1 week before and three cycles after neoadjuvant chemotherapy...

BACKGROUND: Gastric Cancer (GC) with Peritoneal Carcinomatosis (PC) has long been regarded as a terminal disease. Over the past two decades, cytoreductive surgery (CRS) with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) has changed the traditional concept of peritoneal metastases from being a systemic disease, to being considered a locoregional dissemination. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A prospective study was performed at a high-volume Carcinomatosis Center to evaluate survival, morbi-mortality and prognostic factors for survival in a cohort of patients with GC and PC treated with CRS + HIPEC between June 2006 and December 2016...

The clinical indication for capsule endoscopy has expanded from small bowel evaluation to include esophagus or colon evaluation.Nevertheless, the role of capsule endoscopy in evaluation of the stomach is very limited because of the large volume and surface.However, efforts to develop an active locomotion system for capsule manipulation in detailed gastric evaluation are ongoing, becausethe technique is non-invasive, convenient, and safe, and requires no sedation. Studies have successfully reported gastric evaluation usinga magnetic-controlled capsule endoscopy system...
