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...

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 Patient’s with Barrett’s esophagus (BE) are at risk of progression to esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC). Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) was found to be a predictor of poor prognosis in patients with EAC; however, its performance in premalignant esophageal lesions is vague. We aimed to evaluate the utility of NLR as a predictor of histologic progression in patients with BE. Methods A prospective cohort of patients with proven BE in a tertiary referral center was retrospectively ana...

GOALS: The goal of this study was to examine the impact of prior treatment with a nitroimidazole antibiotic on the success of Helicobacter pylori treatment. BACKGROUND: Prior nitroimidazole exposure may increase the likelihood of nitroimidazole-resistant H. pylori. Current H. pylori treatment guidelines recommend that, in the absence of susceptibility testing, patients with prior nitroimidazole exposure should not be treated with a nitroimidazole antibiotic. Data to support this recommendation a...

INTRODUCTION: Suppression of gastric acid secretion with proton-pump inhibitors (PPI) is an integral part of the treatment of Helicobacter pylori infection. Esomeprazole has been shown to be superior to other PPIs when used in the context of triple therapy; however, comparative data for PPI efficacy in quadruple therapy are lacking. Current guidelines recommend H. pylori eradication with quadruple therapy in areas with high clarithromycin resistance. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether esomeprazole ...
