1. Do probiotics have a therapeutic role in gastroenterology?
Match Strength: 4.365
Several hundred species of bacteria inhabit the gut, and affect its cell biology, morphology and homeostasis. Many bacteria are however potential pathogens, especially if the integrity of the epithelial barrier is physically or functionally breached. Conversely, the interaction between host and commensal microbes can confer important health benefits. This has led to commercial and public interest in "probiotics", live microbes principally taken as food supplements. Might probiotics also be used in disease therapy? Experimental evidence that probiotics modulate gut physiology, particularly ... Read More »

2. Molecular biology of Barrett's cancer.
Match Strength: 3.554
Oesophageal adenocarcinoma (OA) remains one of the more deadly forms of gastro-intestinal cancer with a mortality rate exceeding 90%. The incidence of OA remains unabated and has a reported fivefold increase since 1970 [Pera M, Cameron AJ, Trastek VF, Carpenter HA & Zinsmeister AR. Increasing incidence of adenocarcinoma of the esophagus and esophagogastric junction. Gastroenterology 1993; 104(2): 510-513]. Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease and its sequelae, Barrett's oesophagus, is one of the principle risk factors in the development of OA, with a 30-fold increased risk in Barrett's patients ...

3. Sensitivity and specificity of various tests for the diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori in Egyptian children.
Match Strength: 2.658
OBJECTIVES: Many noninvasive methods (using breath, blood, and stool samples) are available to diagnose Helicobacter pylori. However, because the noninvasive tests are proxy measures of the infection, they need validation before use. Factors that may affect test validity include patient age, gender, and geographic location. Because no data were available on the validation of noninvasive tests for the diagnosis of H. pylori among children in the Middle East, this study was performed. METHODS: Children between 2 and 17 years of age evaluated at the Cairo University School of Medicine pediatric ... Read More »
