- Reinforcing the mucus: a new therapeutic approach for ulcerative colitis? Gibson, P. R.; Muir, J.G. // Gut;Jul2005, Vol. 54 Issue 7, p900
Luminal delivery of phosphatidyl rich phospholipids appears to reduce mucosal inflammatory activity in a high proportion of patients with chronically active ulcerative colitis. The simplicity and apparent safety of this therapeutic approach offers new insights into the importance of the mucus...

- Carbogen Breathing Differentially Enhances Blood Plasma Volume and 5-Fluorouracil Uptake in Two Murine Colon Tumor Models with a Distinct Vascular Structure. Van Laarhoven, Hanneke W. M.; Gambarota, Giulio; Lok, Jasper; Lammens, Martin; Kamm, Yvonne L. M.; Wagener, Theo; Punt, Cornelis J. A.; Van der Kogel, Albert J.; Heerschap, Arend // Neoplasia;Jun2006, Vol. 8 Issue 6, p477
For the systemic treatment of colorectal cancer, 5-fluorouracil (FU)--based chemotherapy is the standard. However, only a subset of patients responds to chemotherapy. Breathing of carbogen (95% O2 and 5% CO2) may increase the uptake of FU through changes in tumor physiology. This study aims to...
- Evaluation of the effects of hyperbaric oxygen treatment and enoxaparin on left colon anastomosis. An experimental study. KEMIK, O.; ADAS, G.; ARIKAN, S.; GURLULER, E.; DOGAN, Y.; TOKLU, A. S.; KAPRAN, Y.; KUNTSAL, L.; PURISA, S.; KEMIK, A. // European Review for Medical & Pharmacological Sciences;Sep2013, Vol. 17 Issue 17, p2286
BACKGROUND: Surgical interventions on left colon lead to high morbidity. The problems in wound healing are the main cause of this morbidity. Hypoxia retards wound healing and hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) has an anti-hypoxic effect. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this experimental study we...
- Indications for hyperbaric oxygen therapy. // DVM: The Newsmagazine of Veterinary Medicine;Apr2012, Vol. 43 Issue 4, p35
The article offers information on the concept of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. It mentions that the therapy allows patient to breathe high concentrations of oxygen. It mentions that hyperbaric treatment is used in the treatment of Lyme disease, colon torsions and peripheral neuropathies. It states...
- Faecal urobilinogen levels and pH of stools in population groups with different incidence of cancer of the colon, and their possible role in its aetiology. Malhotra, S. L. // Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine;Sep1982, Vol. 75 Issue 9, p709
Mean faecal urobilinogen levels and the pH of stools were both found to be higher in subjects from a population group at high risk of developing cancer of the colon than in subjects matched for age, sex and socioeconomic status from a low-risk population group. An alkaline reaction of the colon...
