INTRODUCTION/OBJECTIVE: Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a bowel disorder characterized by pain accompanying defecation or altered bowel habits, divided into diarrhea-predominant, constipation-predominant, and alternating subtypes, whose pathogenesis is considered to include disordered bowel motility. The hormone ghrelin is a growth hormone secretagogue which furthermore affects gastrointestinal motility. We study the association between its genetic polymorphisms and the risk for IBS. METHODS: ...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of Crohn's disease (CD) patients is complex as therapy choices depend on a variety of factors, such as location and severity of inflammation, disease behavior (inflammatory, stricturing or penetrating) but also comorbidities, extra-intestinal manifestations, the patient's age, and previous therapies. Subsequently, the choice of treatment should be tailored to the individual patient. SUMMARY: This article gives the reader therapy algorithms as a guide through different CD sc...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine the characteristics of patients without Helicobacter pylori infection who were prescribed antacid medications (potassium-competitive acid blockers, proton pump inhibitors, and/or H2 receptor antagonist) and had no upper gastrointestinal lesions detected by endoscopy. METHODS: This cross-sectional study included the patients who underwent upper gastrointestinal endoscopy in our institution between August 2017 and July 2018. They were aged from 55 ...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Proton pump inhibitor (PPI) was widely used in cirrhotic patients with variceal bleeding empirically rather than evidence-based practice. We aimed to evaluate the plausible indication of PPI use in variceal bleeding cirrhotic patients and figure out whether it can decrease the re-bleeding rate after endoscopic therapy. Furthermore, we also investigated the association between PPI and bleeding-related mortality in these patients. METHODS: We have searched in PubMed, Medline, ...
BACKGROUND/AIMS: The hepatitis C virus nonstructural 3/4A protease has been shown to cleave protein tyrosine phosphatase nonreceptor type 2 (PTPN2, also known as T cell protein tyrosine phosphatase), thereby inducing a shift from a Th1 toward a nonantiviral Th2 immunity. Ribavirin therapy reverses these effects and supports direct-acting antiviral (DAA) therapy as an immunomodulatory compound and ultimately improves the response to DAA therapy. Here we aimed to assess whether intrahepatic levels...

Extraintestinal manifestations (EIM) have become an important source of morbidity and disability as well as an identified risk factor for an unfavorably course of disease in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Therefore, efforts have been put into a more global and interdisciplinary management of IBD patients in collaboration with rheumatologists, dermatologists, and ophthalmologists. A real therapeutic success has also been obtained with a more "systemic" IBD treatment associated with the develo...

INTRODUCTION: Weakly acidic reflux has been reported to be the major cause of symptoms in patients with proton pump inhibitor (PPI)-refractory nonerosive reflux disease (NERD) undergoing PPI treatment. We previously reported that reflux at pH 4-5 was the main factor that induced symptoms in such patients. The present study aimed to elucidate the symptom-ameliorating effect of vonoprazan (VPZ) by evaluating the change in the pH value of the refluxate using multichannel intraluminal impedance and ...

BACKGROUND: Symptoms caused by chronic pancreatitis (CP) are common but often elusive hampering therapeutic decisions. Though correlations of morphologic findings in imaging and clinical appearance remain vague. We aimed in investigating whether a distinct combination of clinical parameters can better define the extent of pancreatic insufficiency and disease burden. METHODS: Data from 350 CP patients were evaluated retrospectively from a single center data base following predefined criteria: (i)...

INTRODUCTION: Management of esophageal anastomotic leaks (AL) and esophageal perforations (EP) remains difficult and often requires an interdisciplinary treatment modality. For primary endoscopic management, self-expanding metallic stent (SEMS) placement is often considered first-line therapy. Recently, endoscopic vacuum therapy (EVT) has emerged as an alternative or adjunct for management of these conditions. So far, data for EVT in the upper gastrointestinal-tract is restricted to single centr...

OBJECTIVES: Recently, several studies have demonstrated the usefulness of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for residual or locally recurrent colorectal lesions after endoscopic treatment. However, the feasibility of ESD for recurrent rectal lesions after transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) has not been fully investigated. In this study, we evaluated the feasibility and safety of ESD for recurrent rectal lesions after TEM. METHODS: The treatment outcomes of 10 lesions in 9 patients, who...
