    Many extremophilic microorganisms are polyextremophiles, being confronted with more than one stress condition. For instance, some thermoacidophilic microorganisms are in addition capable to resist very high metal concentrations. Most likely, they have developed special adaptations to thrive in...

    Background Gastric polyps (GP) are characterised by luminal overgrowths projecting above the plane of the mucosal surface that can be classified as non-neoplastic and neoplastic lesions. In humans, recent studies have drawn attention the malignant potential of some of these lesions. However,...

  • Case report: multiple gastric adenomatous polyps- a rare occurrence. Godhi, Ashok; Godhi, Satyajit; Jalde, Devendra; Mahajan, Aman; Pandey, Rakesh; Patil, Aditya // Recent Research in Science & Technology;2012, Vol. 4 Issue 4, p54 

    Multiple gastric polyps usually occur as a part of multiple polyposis syndrome of the gut. Multiple gastric polyps are rarely encountered in general surgical practice, with an incidence of <1% including those detected incidentally. Most common multiple gastric polyps are hyperplastic polyps....

  • Endoscopic versus histological characterisation of polyps during screening colonoscopy. Schachschal, Guido; Mayr, Michael; Treszl, Andras; Balzer, Klaus; Wegscheider, Karl; Aschenbeck, Jens; Aminalai, Alireza; Drosse, Rolf; Schröder, Andreas; Scheel, Mathias; Bothe, Carl-Hermann; Bruhn, Jens-Peter; Burmeister, Wolfgang; Stange, Gabriela; Bähr, Christina; Kießlich, Ralf; Rösch, Thomas // Gut;Mar2014, Vol. 63 Issue 3, p458 

    Background As screening colonoscopy becomes more widespread, the costs for histopathological assessment of resected polyps are rising correspondingly. Reference centres have published highly accurate results for endoscopic polyp classification. Therefore, it has been proposed that, for smaller...

    One thousand forty-eight small (up to 6 mm) colorectal polyps, removed during colonoscopy, have been analyzed. Sixty-one percent of these small polyps were neoplastic, the remainder being equally divided between hyperplastic polyps and polypoid mucosa with normal-appearing glands. The number of...

    OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this retrospective study was to determine the frequency and intensity of eosinophilic infiltration (or tissue eosinophilia) in the stroma of colonic adenomas, hyperplastic polyps, and colorectal adenocarcinomas. Eosinophilic infiltration in various malignancies has been...

  • Are Endoscopic Measurements of Colonic Polyps Reliable? Fennerty, M. Brian; Davidson, Jonelle; Emerson, Scott S.; Sampliner, Richard E.; Hixson, Lee J.; Garewal, Harinder S. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Apr1993, Vol. 88 Issue 4, p496 

    Many clinical studies of colorectal adenomatous polyps rely on endoscopic estimation of polyp size. To examine the reliability of such measurements, we conducted a study using artificial polyps in an endoscopy teaching model. Eight experienced endoscopists estimated the size of 13 polyps in two...
