    The effects of the abdominal weight with the intention of producing training of the diaphragm, have not been sufficiently evaluated. We studied the function of the diaphragm during the abdominal weight training and during associated changes in the respiratory pattern. Six normal volunteers were...

    OBJECTIVES:Subclassification of achalasia based on high-resolution manometry (HRM) may be clinically relevant because response to therapy may vary by subtype. However, the consistency and reliability of subtyping achalasia patients based on HRM remains undefined. The objectives of this study...

    Background: Data on the spectrum of corrosive injury to the esophagus after paraquat or glyphosate-surfactant ingestion are sparse in the literature and confined to case studies and brief reports. Therefore, this study aimed to examine the clinical features, degrees of esophageal injury, and...

    Background. Soft esophageal bolus impaction is an emergency that requires skilled endoscopic removal if persistent obstructive symptoms do not resolve spontaneously after careful observation. Expedited care of these patients is crucial to avoid respiratory and mechanical complications. Other...

    The external muscle layer of the mammalian esophagus consists of striated muscles. We investigated the contractile properties of esophageal striated muscle by comparison with those of skeletal and cardiac muscles. Electrical field stimulation with single pulses evoked twitch-like contractile...

  • Laminin-332 promotes the invasion of oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma via PI3K activation. Baba, Y.; Iyama, K.-i.; Hirashima, K.; Nagai, Y.; Yoshida, N.; Hayashi, N.; Miyanari, N.; Baba, H. // British Journal of Cancer;3/4/2008, Vol. 98 Issue 5, p974 

    Laminin-332 is major component of epithelial basement membrane, and has an important role in cell migration and tumour invasion. Recently, the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) activation induced by laminin-332 during carcinogenesis or tumour invasion has been highlighted in skin squamous...
