AIMS: Later evaluation on those patients who underwent partial gastrectomy as a treatment for peptic ulcer, at that time when any drug to eradicate the Helicobacter pylori was not used. The clinical evaluation included the late postoperative symptoms and postgastrectomy syndromes like dumping, diarrhea, alkaline gastritis and nutritional aspects...

Gastric acid, a product of parietal cells secretion, full fills multiple biological roles which are absolutely necessary to keep corporal homeostasis. The production of the acid depends upon an effector cellular process represented in the first step by histamine, acetilcholine and gastrin, first messengers of the process. These interact with specific receptors than in sequence activate second messengers -cAMP and the calcium-calmodulin system- which afterwards activate a kinase. An specific protein is then phosphorilated by this enzyme, being the crucial factor that starts the production of acid...

From 1990 to 1998, 12 patients with columnar metaplasia of the lower esophagus were diagnosed. Only 4 of them displayed a Barrett's epithelium (BE) with a specialized columnar epithelium and globet cells. As it is already published, a male predominance was observed. In three of these patients some predisposing factor to develop BE was detected (i.e. severe central nervous system damage, chronic pulmonary disease, esophageal atresia and chemotherapy). All patients had severe gastroesophageal reflux (GER) with abnormal pH probe...
