The article reports issues and topics related to the gastrointestinal system. A research study has found out that carbonated drinks, in contradiction to previous studies, are not a major risk for esophageal adenocarcinoma. The global assessment method called the Royal Free Hospital Global Assessment has accurately predicted survival during subsequent 14 to 52 months follow-up of patients with cirrhosis.

    Esophageal carcinoma rarely results in intracranial metastases but when it does, the patient prognosis is grim. Because of its rarity outcomes after stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) are not known. We sought to evaluate the outcomes of SRS in the management of esophageal cancer that has spread to...

    The present study showed, for the first time, that aberrant cfmiRNAs may contribute to survival outcome of esophageal adenocarcinome (EA) and H. pylori infection status may modify the association between cfmiRNAs and EA survival.Cell free circulating microRNAs (cfmiRNAs) have been recognized as...

    Inflammatory bowel diseases comprising Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) are chronic immunologically mediated diseases. The key mechanism underlying the pathogenesis of these diseases is a dysregulated immune response to commensal flora in a genetically susceptible host. Thus...
