H PYLORI INFECTION IN A CHINESE FISHING POPULATION: DOES HELMINTH INFECTION PROTECT AGAINST GASTRIC ATROPHY
- Interactions between parasites and microbial communities in the human gut. F., Berrilli; D., Di Cave; S., Cavallero; S., D'Amelio // Frontiers in Cellular & Infection Microbiology;Oct2012, Vol. 2, p1
The interactions between intestinal microbiota, immune system and pathogens describe the human gut as a complex ecosystem, where all components play a relevant role in modulating each other and in the maintenance of homeostasis. The balance among the gut microbiota and the human body appear to...
- NY-ESO-1 antibody as a novel tumour marker of gastric cancer. Fujiwara, S; Wada, H; Kawada, J; Kawabata, R; Takahashi, T; Fujita, J; Hirao, T; Shibata, K; Makari, Y; Iijima, S; Nishikawa, H; Jungbluth, A A; Nakamura, Y; Kurokawa, Y; Yamasaki, M; Miyata, H; Nakajima, K; Takiguchi, S; Nakayama, E; Mori, M // British Journal of Cancer;3/19/2013, Vol. 108 Issue 5, p1119
Background:NY-ESO-1 antibodies are specifically observed in patients with NY-ESO-1-expressing tumours. We analysed whether the NY-ESO-1 humoral immune response is a useful tumour marker of gastric cancer.Methods:Sera from 363 gastric cancer patients were screened by enzyme-linked immunosorbent...
- Whipworm genome and dual-species transcriptome analyses provide molecular insights into an intimate host-parasite interaction. Foth, Bernardo J; Tsai, Isheng J; Reid, Adam J; Bancroft, Allison J; Nichol, Sarah; Tracey, Alan; Holroyd, Nancy; Cotton, James A; Stanley, Eleanor J; Zarowiecki, Magdalena; Liu, Jimmy Z; Huckvale, Thomas; Cooper, Philip J; Grencis, Richard K; Berriman, Matthew // Nature Genetics;Jul2014, Vol. 46 Issue 7, p693
Whipworms are common soil-transmitted helminths that cause debilitating chronic infections in man. These nematodes are only distantly related to Caenorhabditis elegans and have evolved to occupy an unusual niche, tunneling through epithelial cells of the large intestine. We report here the...
- Differences in Adult Egg Output of Schistocephalus solidus From Singly- and Multiply-Infected Sticklebacks. Dörücü, M.; Wilson, D.; Barber, I. // Journal of Parasitology;Dec2007, Vol. 93 Issue 6, p1521
In this study, we recovered Schistocephalus solidus plerocercoids from singly and multiply infected three-spine sticklebacks, Gasterosteus aculeatus, transferred them individually to in vitro culture conditions, and quantified their lifetime egg output. We found a significant difference in the...
- Will worms really cure Crohn's disease. Radford-Smith, G. L. // Gut;Jan2005, Vol. 54 Issue 1, p6
Treatment of Crohn's disease patients with the intestinal helminth Trichuris suis appears safe and effective in the short term, even with concurrent immunosuppressive therapy
- A Rare Gastric Outlet Anomaly: Pyloric Ostium on Incissura Angularis. Süleyman Uraz; Tolga Konduk; Altay Çelebi; Ömer Şentürk; Sadettin Hülagü // Digestive Diseases & Sciences;Apr2007, Vol. 52 Issue 4, p1001
AbstractÂ Â Congenital gastric outlet anomalies are rarely seen defects resulting from early embryologic development of foregut. We report a case of congenital pyloric outlet anomaly in a 60-year-old man with mild postprandial epigastric discomfort of approximately 3 monthsâ€™ duration....
- Microbiology: RNA pockets help parasites to infect. // Nature;11/27/2014, Vol. 515 Issue 7528, p469
The article reports that parasitic worms release tiny membrane-bound sacs which contain small Ribonucleic acid that immobilize immune responses in infected mice.
- PYLORIC OBSTRUCTION BY A MUCOSAL DIAPHRAGM. Pulsifer, L.; Jedd, F. L.; Van Zandt, T. F. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Jan1965, Vol. 43 Issue 1, p30
Discusses the incidence of pyloric obstruction which is caused by a mucosal diaphragm. Description of pyloric obstruction; Causes of pyloric obstruction; Information on posterior gastrojejunostomy operation.
- An ER export signal accelerates the surface expression of shal potassium channels in pyloric neurons of the lobster stomatogastric ganglion. Zhang, Y.; Harris-Warrick, R. M. // Pflugers Archiv European Journal of Physiology;Jan2004, Vol. 447 Issue 4, p401
The shal gene encoding the transient potassium current, IA, plays important roles in shaping the firing properties of neurons in the pyloric network in the stomatogastric ganglion (STG) of the spiny lobster, Panulirus interruptus. However, when we overexpressed the shal protein in pyloric...
