It is used to predict the risk of re-bleeding and mortality and is known to have a stronger association with gastric ulcers
compared with duodenal ulcers.
Other factors that may be responsible for the decline in the prevalence of duodenal ulcer over the study period should be considered because of the unexpected difference in the changing prevalence patterns of duodenal ulcer and gastric ulcer
Hence by their ability to differentiate into gastric cells and their ability to increase growth factors EGF & VEGF as well as reducing inflammatory mediators, stem cells have shown potential efficacy in treating gastric ulcer
, where their effect was as good as that of omeprazole.
Licensed treatments for gastric ulcers
aren't banned from use in training.
2] receptor antagonists have been used to treat the gastric ulcer
(Santin et al.
Experimental set-up for pylorus ligation and aspirin-induced gastric ulcer
Gastro-colic fistula secondary to benign gastric ulcer
disease is uncommon with only 111 reported cases in English literature (2).
It included 80 healthy subjects and the studied population was divided on the basis of (a) eating food from outside home daily, twice a week or once a week, (b) using filtered or tap water for drinking, and (c) having family history of gastric ulcer
or without family history of gastric ulcer
These agents have been implicated in the pathogenesis of gastric ulcer
including enhanced gastric acid and pepsin secretion, inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis and cell proliferation growth, diminished gastric blood flow and gastric motility (7)
Aspirin-induced (ASP) gastric ulcer
model in rats: Aspirin at a dose of 150 mg/kg, po was administered to induce ulcer after 45 min of treatment of DMHBR (100 mg/kg, po) and omeprazole (10 mg/kg, po).
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- The results of a new research into the function of Gastric Ulcer
Bacteria paved the way for a future vaccine against the bacteria.
From the literature review, male incidence is slightly higher than female which is in duodenal ulcer the ratio between men and women is 2:1 while in gastric ulcer
the ratio is 1:1.
Prevacid NapraPAC (lansoprazole delayed-release capsules and naproxen tablets kit) is now approved for reduction of NSAID-associated gastric ulcers
in patients with a history of a documented gastric ulcer
who require the use of an NSAID for the treatment of the signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and ankylosing spondylitis.
Pharmaceutical company Chemeq Ltd (ASX: CMQ) has produced an antimicrobial drug that kills a strain of the gastric ulcer
germ, Helicobacter pylori which is resistant to antibiotics.
Cytotec is indicated for the prevention of NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)-induced gastric ulcers
in patients at high risk of complications from gastric ulcer
, as well as patients at high risk of developing gastric ulceration, such as patients with a history of ulcer.
