This article presents excerpts from medical research papers published in different journals. According to the article "Colonoscopy: How Was It for You?," the short duration of action and rapid recovery with propofol make it attractive for endoscopy while patient controlled analgesia is a well established technique for analgesia. According to the article "Helicobacter Pylori and Oesophageal Adenocarcinoma: Association or Causation?," population Helicobacter pylon screening and treatment may prevent mortality from distal gastric adenocarcirioma. This has not been recommended as H pyiori may have protective as well as harmful effects and the risk-benefit ratio is uncertain.

    Helicobacter pylori (HP) infection appears protective against oesophageal adenocarcinoma (EA) risk. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are released in the presence of HP infection. In MMP2 wild-type individuals, HP was significantly protective of EA risk (adjusted odds ratio: 0.29; 95% confidence...

    Background: Helicobacter pylori (Hp), which is one of the causative agents in human gastric adenocarcinoma, is known to interact with mucous gel and alter mucin gene expression. The aim of this work was to study, using an in vitro model of cell infection, the effects of urease, flagellin, and...
