BACKGROUND: Infection by Helicobacter pylori (H. pilory) affects 50% of the world population. Simple methods for its detection are now available. OBJECTIVES: To identify H. pylori by using a monoclonal coproantigen technique in paediatric patients, and to determine its association with gastrointestinal diseases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study included a total of 110 subjects aged 1 to 18 years. The study variables included: Family history of gastrointestinal disease, age, gender, gastrointestinal symptoms, as well as apparently healthy (asymptomatic) subjects...

In this review, we summarize the progresses in allergy, endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology, infectious diseases, neurology, nutrition and respiratory tract illnesses that have been published in The Italian Journal of Pediatrics in 2012. The induction of Treg activity by probiotics might be effective for promoting tolerance towards food allergens. Nasal cytology is useful in patients with rhinitis for diagnosing chronic non-allergic non-infectious diseases. Atopic eczema is associated both with an aberrant skin matrix and impaired systemic immune response...

Prevalence of atrophic gastritis in various population of Siberia with serological tests was studied. Representative samples of Novosibirsk adult population and also urban and rural population of Yakutia were examined. 348 persons at the age more than 45 years (180 males and 168 females) were studied. Concentration of pepsinogen I, gastrin 17 and antibodies to Helicobacter pilori in blood serum was estimated with immune-enzyme analysis ("Biohit GastroPanel", "Biohit", Finland). In addition, domestic test-systems were used for detection cytotoxic (expressing CagA-protein) strains H...

Three methods of ozone therapy (intravenous injection of ozonized physiologic saline, oral intake of ozonized low-mineral water and combination of the two treatments) were compared by efficacy in 215 patients with gastroduodenal pathology associated with Helicobacter pilori. All the techniques of ozone therapy proved effective in relation to regress of clinical symptoms, regeneration processes, eradication of Helicobacter pylori, but the combined regimen was the best.

Using multilocus sequence typing (MLST), 22 Helicobacter pylori isolates from Russia have been characterized. All of the Russian strains were assigned to a single population, hpEurope.

UNLABELLED: The recurrent chronic abdominal pain (RAP) is one of the most usual pathologies in pediatrics. It may appear in the form of periodical or continuous sharp crisis. In order to be accepted as chronic, the presence of this pain must last at least 3 months. In many of the reference publications, only between 5 and 1% of the cases are considered to have an organic ethiology and the rest are labelled as functional processes of psychological origin. The reason for our communication is to show our experience on 304 RAP patients from 1995 to 2001...

The gastric pathogen Helicobacter pylori has been recognized as the major aetiologic agent of chronic gastritis and peptic ulcers and also a risk factor for gastric cancer; eradication of H pylori prevents peptic ulcer recurrence and may also decrease the prevalence of gastric cancer in high risk populations around the world. Currently the only accepted indication for treatment is ulcer disease and maltosa, infected with Helicobacter pilory. However treatment is difficult and easily develops resistance. The elaboration of an antibiotic profile is recommended after a treatment failure...

Cardiovascular diseases and infections remain the first mortality causes in ESRD patients. European recommendations for good clinical practice in the hemodialysis field advocate to use the inflammation markers in daily practice. These markers foretell both cardiovascular and global mortality. They also enable to detect the silent infections (parodontitis, Heliobacter pilory infection, shunt infection in PTFE), to make sure of the dialysis biocompatibility (microbiological quality of the dialysate, use of biocompatible membrane)...

The relationship between malnutrition and inflammation is by now well established. IL-6 and, probably, other proinflammatory cytokines (mainly IL-1 and TNF) may represent the link between these two entities since these interleukins may promote loss of appetite, muscle protein breakdown and reduced hepatic synthesis of "negative" acute phase proteins like albumin, prealbumin and transferrin. IL-6 also stimulates up to 1000 fold the hepatic synthesis of "positive" acute phase proteins, mainly C-reactive Protein (CRP) and Serum Amyloid A...

In this review we report our recent findings of histopathological features of plaque instability and the association with Mycoplasma pneumoniae (MP) and Chlamydia pneumoniae (CP) infection, studying thrombosed coronary artery segments (CAS) of patients who died due to acute myocardial infarction. Vulnerable plaques are known to be associated with fat atheromas and inflammation of the plaque. Here we demonstrated that vulnerability is also related with focal positive vessel remodeling that maintains relatively well preserved lumen even in the presence of large atheromatous plaques...

Prospects for future development in the field of gastrointestinal pharmacology were briefly discussed on the base of the present progress in our own research on animal models of gastric ulcer and the mechanism of gastric acid secretion. We established a few novel methods to induce extensive ulceration restricted to the gastric antral area in rats by a combination of drug-induced vagal stimulation with necrotizing agents or anti-inflammatory drugs, as well as with ammonia in relation to the etiological role of Helicobacter pilori...

The contributions of cell surface oligosaccharides to critical biological processes such as leukocyte-endothelial cell adhesion, bacterial and viral infection, and immunological recognition of tumor cells and foreign tissue are now understood in significant molecular detail. These discoveries at the forefront of biological research have motivated the design of synthetic glycoconjugates as tools for the fundamental study of glycobiology and as candidates for future generations of therapeutic and pharmaceutical reagents...

Receptors for C3b in normal skin were studied. C3b was produced by treating normal human serum with cobra venom factor and by partial digestion of purified C3 with trypsin. Cryostat sections of normal human skin were incubated with C3b, followed by a direct immunofluorescent technique using monospecific goat antihuman C3. The histologic localization of C3b fluorescence was ascertained by fixing cryostat sections with glutaraldehyde and staining with hematoxylin and eosin. The following structures showed staining with anti-C3: (1) endothelial cells in capillaries, larger vessels, and arteries, (2) smooth muscle in arrector pilori muscles and artery walls, and (3) myoepithelial cells in the secretory portion of sweat glands...
