Risk factors of Helicobacter pylori infection in an urban community in Northeast Brazil and the relationship between the infection and gastric diseases
Helicobacter pylori is the primary etiologic agent involved in gastric diseases in humans with worldwide distributions. In
2005, H. pylori was identified as a microbiologic contaminant of water, and its role in gastric diseases was further assessed.
Prevalence of infection and Antimicrobial Resistance of Helicobacter pylori isolates from symptomatic patients of Talca Regional Hospital, Chile
Helicobacter pylori, is the causative agent of gastritis, gastric ulcers, gastric cancer and mucosal-associated lymphoid tissue tumor (MALT). There are several treatment schemes for the eradication of this bacterium.
IMMUNODETECTION OF PEPSINOGENS, GASTRIN-17 AND HELICOBACTER PYLORI FOR NON-INVASIVE DIAGNOSIS OF HIGH-RISK ATROPHIC GASTRITIS IN CHILE
astric cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in the world. In Chile, the disease represents the first cause of cancer death in men and the third cause in women, where approximately 3000 individuals died every year from gastric cancer.
GASTRIC CANCER; THE VILLARRICA HOSPITAL PROGRAM
Chile has a 60 to 80 % rate of Helicobacter infection depending on the region; is no surprise that the mortality rate due to gastric cancer in Chile is one of the highest in America.
Genetic variants associated with Helicobacter pylori infection increase serum pepsinogen 2 level in gastric cancer patients
Little is known about serum diagnostic metabolites relate to H. pylori risk of gastric cancer (GC). We aimed to investigate the association between plasma metabolite concentrations and H. pylori infection and two cohorts of patients at risk and excluded GC.
Polymorphisms in Wnt/beta-catenin pathway are associated with survival of gastric cancer
Gastric cancer (GC) is the sixth most common cancer and the third leading cause of death due to cancer worldwide. More than a half of patients are diagnosed at advanced stage (TNM III), where 5-year overall survival rate is less than 50%.
