Controlled Delivery of Bile Acids to the Colon.

Clin Transl Gastroenterol 2020 12;11(12):e00229

Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.

Introduction: Bile acids, such as chenodeoxycholic acid, play an important role in digestion but are also involved in intestinal motility, fluid homeostasis, and humoral activity. Colonic delivery of sodium chenodeoxycholate (CDC) has demonstrated clinical efficacy in treating irritable bowel syndrome with constipation but was associated with a high frequency of abdominal pain. We hypothesized that these adverse effects were triggered by local super-physiological CDC levels caused by an unfavorable pharmacokinetic profile of the delayed release formulation. Read More

Regenerative medicine for the upper gastrointestinal tract.

Regen Ther 2020 Dec 4;15:129-137. Epub 2020 Aug 4.

Department of Surgery, Nagasaki University Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, Japan.

The main surgical strategy for gastrointestinal tract malignancy is resection, which consists of not only resection of the involved organs but also simultaneous resection of the surrounding or adjacent mesenteries that contain lymph vessels and nodes. After resection of the diseased organs, the defect of the gastrointestinal conduit is replaced with organs located downstream, such as the stomach and jejunum. However, esophageal and gastric reconstruction using these natural substitutes is associated with a diminished quality of life due to the loss of the reserve function, damage to the antireflux barrier, and dumping syndrome.

[Efficacy and safety of pylorus-preserving gastrectomy for early gastric cancer located in the middle third of the stomach: a meta-analysis].

Zhonghua Wei Chang Wai Ke Za Zhi 2020 Nov;23(11):1088-1096

Department of Gastrointestinal Surgery, the First Affiliated Hospital of Nanchang University, Nanchang, Jiangxi 330006, China.

It is yet to be clarified whether pylorus-preserving gastrectomy (PPG) for early gastric cancer will bring the risk of radical tumor resection, whether it will increase the incidence of postoperative complications, and how much is the benefit of the quality of life for patients after surgery, these issues are not clear. This meta-analysis aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pylorus-preserving gastrectomy (PPG) for early middle gastric cancer. The Chinese and English literatures about PPG and distal gastrectomy (DG) for early gastric cancer were searched from PubMed, Embase, The Cochrane Library, Web of Science, CNKI net and Wanfang database.
