ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study that presents identification of a new strain of H pylori inducing rapid development of gastric cancer in the Mongolian gerbil. Studies in Japan show long term infection of Mongolian gerbils with H pylori results in gastric adenocarcinoma. However, these results hove not been reproduced with Mongolian gerbils in other countries. This study' confirms previous Japanese reports that H pylori infection induces gastric carcinoma in gerbils. The rapid development of gastric cancer with this Chinese strain will facilitate studies on the role of H pylori in gastric carcinogenesis.

In this study Fourier analysis was applied to condensed images of gastric emptying with the aim of evaluating the amplitude and frequency of gastric contractions as well as gastric emptying in patients with various well-defined disorders. In 15 controls, 65 patients with progressive...

    Gastric adenomyoma is a rare tumour-like lesion composed of glandular components and smooth muscle bundles. We report a case of gastric adenomyoma in a 1-week-old neonate who presented with gastric outlet obstruction. To the best of our knowledge, this is the youngest child reported with gastric...
