Assessing the Risk Factors for Refractory Eosinophilic Esophagitis in Children and Adults.

Gastroenterol Res Pract 2019 13;2019:1654543. Epub 2019 Jan 13.

Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehabilitation, ASST Pini/CTO, Milan, Italy.

Background: Up to one-third of the patients suffering from eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) present a refractory form, as defined by nonresponsiveness in clinical, endoscopic, or histological assessment after first-line therapy.

Crosstalk between the Tumor Microenvironment and Immune System in Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma: Potential Targets for New Therapeutic Approaches.

Gastroenterol Res Pract 2018 18;2018:7530619. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Fondazione IRCCS Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza, UO di Oncologia Medica, Viale Cappuccini 1, 71013 San Giovanni Rotondo, FG, Italy.

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma is a lethal disease for which radical surgery and chemotherapy represent the only curative options for a small proportion of patients. Recently, FOLFIRINOX and nab-paclitaxel plus gemcitabine have improved the survival of metastatic patients but prognosis remains poor. A pancreatic tumor microenvironment is a dynamic milieu of cellular and acellular elements, and it represents one of the major limitations to chemotherapy efficacy. Read More

The Interaction of lncRNA-HEIH and lncRNA-HULC with HBXIP in Hepatitis B Patients.

Gastroenterol Res Pract 2018 4;2018:9187316. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Department of Laboratory, People's Hospital of Anji, Huzhou, Zhejiang 313300, China.

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is a major risk factor for the development of hepatic cirrhosis (HC) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), which are associated with very high morbidity and mortality rates worldwide. Many studies have shown that long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) that are highly expressed in HCC (lncRNA-HEIH) and highly upregulated in liver cancer (lncRNA-HULC) have been implicated in the development and progression of hepatitis B-related HC and HCC. In this study, reverse transcription and quantitative PCR were used to detect the expression of lncRNA-HEIH and lncRNA-HULC and western blot analysis to detect the expression of hepatitis B X-interacting protein (HBXIP).

How the V600E Mutation Defines a Distinct Subgroup of Colorectal Cancer: Molecular and Clinical Implications.

Gastroenterol Res Pract 2018 26;2018:9250757. Epub 2018 Nov 26.

Conjoint Gastroenterology Laboratory, QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

The oncogene is an integral component of the MAP kinase pathway, and an activating V600E mutation occurs in 15% of sporadic colorectal cancer. This is an early event in serrated pathway tumourigenesis, and the V600E has been commonly associated with the CpG island methylator phenotype, microsatellite instability (MSI), and a consistent clinical presentation including a proximal location and predilection for elderly females. A proportion of the mutant lesions remain as microsatellite stable (MSS), and in contrast to the MSI cancers, they have an aggressive phenotype and correlate with poor patient outcomes. Read More

Gastroenterol Res Pract 2018 26;2018:2097359. Epub 2018 Nov 26.

Department of New Technologies and Translational Research in Medicine and Surgery, Gastroenterology Unit, University of Pisa, Via Roma 67, 56122 Pisa, Italy.

Bile acid malabsorption (BAM) causing chronic diarrhea may be due to organic as well as functional disorders, and some of them were included under the general label of diarrheic-type irritable bowel syndrome (IBS-D). The 75-selenium homocholic acid taurine (SeHCAT) test is a nuclear medicine investigation considered to be the gold standard for the diagnosis of bile acid malabsorption (BAM). Many studies demonstrate that it could be effective in the clinical workout of chronic diarrhea due to different conditions. Read More

Novel Approaches to Ileocolic and Perianal Fistulising Crohn's Disease.

Gastroenterol Res Pract 2018 21;2018:3159543. Epub 2018 Nov 21.

Department of Clinical Medicine and Surgery, University of Naples Federico II, Italy.

Crohn's disease (CD) is a well-known idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease characterised by transmural inflammation which can ordinarily affect all the gastrointestinal tract. Its true aetiology is unknown, and a causal therapy is not available to date. The most peculiar aspect of CD lies in its absolute heterogeneity, as we might face various scenarios, locations of the disease, pathologic behaviours, and severity of the disease itself. Read More
