BACKGROUND AND AIM Empirical therapy for Helicobacter pylori infection is limited by increasing antibiotic resistance and suboptimal eradication rates. Studies of the relative effectiveness of susceptibility-guided therapy have produced conflicting results. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to determine whether susceptibility-guided therapy is superior to empirical therapy for H. pylori infection. METHODS We searched articles listed in PubM...

Abstract Aim of the study To compare [¹¹C] choline PET/CT findings between patients with cirrhosis and normal liver controls. Methods Included 11 patients with cirrhosis and 14 controls. All underwent a dynamic [11C] choline PET/CT. The maximal standard uptake values (SUVmax), the area under the curve (AUC) and kinetic parameters (K1 and K2), clinical and laboratory data, were compared between groups. Results Patients mean age was 68.4 ± 10.7 and controls, 69.7 ± 7.3 years. Mean SUVmax was highe...

Intestinal metaplasia (IM) is an intermediate step in the progression from premalignant to malignant stages of gastric cancer (GC). The Popeye domain containing (POPDC) gene family encodes three transmembrane proteins, POPDC1, POPDC2, and POPDC3, initially described in muscles and later in epithelial and other cells, where they function in cell–cell interaction, and cell migration. POPDC1 and POPDC3 downregulation was described in several tumors, including colon and gastric cancers. We questione...

Data on cardiovascular outcomes in elderly using proton pump inhibitors (PPI) are scant. We aimed to test the association between PPI use and the occurrence of first-time ischemic stroke (FTIS) among elderly. The electronic database of a centrally located district branch of a large health maintenance organization in Israel was retrospectively screened (2002-2016) for community-dwelling individuals (≥65-95 years) for demographics and co-morbidities. Follow-up was until FTIS, death or end of study...

BACKGROUND The antibiotic resistance profile of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is constantly changing. Up-to-date and reliable data for the effectiveness of first-line H. pylori treatment protocols are necessary to provide evidence-based best-practice guidelines. OBJECTIVES To determine the effectiveness, compliance and safety of first-line treatment for H. pylori in Israel. METHODS An observational, prospective, multicenter study was conducted in tertiary referral centers in Israel, as part of...

BACKGROUND AND AIM Due to the increasing resistance of Helicobacter pylori, there is a need for novel antibiotic treatment protocols. We aimed to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis in order to determine the effectiveness and safety of rifabutin triple therapy for H. pylori infection. METHODS We performed a systematic review of prospective clinical trials with a treatment arm consisting of proton pump inhibitor, amoxicillin, and rifabutin and a meta-analysis of randomized controlled tr...
