1. Gastroduodenal peptic ulcer and Helicobacter pylori infection in children and adolescents.
Match Strength: 11.745
OBJECTIVES: To show important aspects of gastroduodenal peptic ulcer and of Helicobacter pylori infection in children and adolescents. SOURCES: Technical textbooks and MEDLINE and LILACS databases including publications between 1966 and 2006. SUMMARY OF THE FINDINGS: The etiology of peptic ulcer in children and adolescents may be primary, associated with H. pylori infection, or secondary, in which etiopathogenic mechanisms rely upon the underlying disease. The infection is acquired predominantly in childhood, with prevalence rates between 56.8 and 83.1% in children who live in the poorest ... Read More »

2. Risk of oesophageal cancer by histology among patients hospitalised for gastroduodenal ulcers.
Match Strength: 8.362
OBJECTIVE: The mechanism behind the epidemiologically evident inverse relationship between Helicobacter pylori seropositivity and risk of oesophageal adenocarcinoma (OAC) remains obscure. Severe corpus gastritis is unlikely to be in the causal pathway. With the hypothesis of a uniformly low risk, we aimed to explore the associations of OAC with duodenal ulcer (DU) and gastric ulcer (GU) - both linked to H. pylori infection but with different patterns of bacterial colonization and intragastric acidity. We also addressed possible associations of oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) with ... Read More »

3. Protective effects of nedocromil sodium and sodium cromoglycate on gastroduodenal ulcers: a comparative study in rats.
Match Strength: 6.979
Stabilization of mast cells plays a key mechanism to protect gastrointestinal tract from injury. This study presents a comparative evaluation of mast cell stabilizers nedocromil sodium (NDS) and sodium cromoglycate (SCG) in experimental gastric and duodenal ulcers in rats. Wistar rats of either sex were used in this study. Both NDS and SCG, in the doses of 10, 30 and 100 mg/kg were given intraperitoneally for gastric secretion studies and by gavage for antiulcer studies. Acid secretion studies were undertaken in pylorus-ligated rats. Gastric lesions were induced by water immersion restraint ... Read More »
