Seizures that occur during a febrile episode. It is a common condition, affecting 2-5% of children aged 3 months to five years. An autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance has been identified in some families. The majority are simple febrile seizures (generally defined as generalized onset, single seizures with a duration of less than 30 minutes). Complex febrile seizures are characterized by focal onset, duration greater than 30 minutes, and/or more than one seizure in a 24 hour period. The likelihood of developing epilepsy (i.e., a nonfebrile seizure disorder) following simple febrile seizures is low. Complex febrile seizures are associated with a moderately increased incidence of epilepsy. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p784)

A retrospective study of the usefulness of acid secretory testing. (1/79)

BACKGROUND: Gastric analysis is useful for diagnosing and monitoring the control of hypersecretory conditions and to distinguish appropriate from inappropriate causes of hypergastrinaemia. Pentagastrin, used to measure maximal acid output (MAO), is no longer available in the USA. METHODS: We examined the University of Pennsylvania Health System gastric analysis database, which includes demographic data, study indications, gastric analysis, and serum gastrin and secretin testing results according to referral indications, paying specific attention to discordant basal acid output (BAO) and MAO measurements. RESULTS: One hundred and twenty-four gastric analyses were performed in 103 patients (42 males, mean age 47.5 years, 14 with prior acid-decreasing surgery). Recurrent ulceration or pain unresponsive to antisecretory therapy was the indication in 42 patients. Twelve were hypersecretory, including three each with isolated elevations of BAO or MAO. Hypergastrinaemia was the indication in 35 patients. Five were hypersecretory (four with Zollinger-Ellison syndrome), three had isolated MAO elevations and 16 were hypo- or achlorhydric, indicating appropriate hypergastrinaemia. Of the seven patients with isolated MAO elevations, two had clear benefit from the stimulated portion of the study (four additional patients had equivocal benefit). CONCLUSIONS: Gastrin concentrations cannot be interpreted without knowledge of acid secretory capacity. MAO measurement has a small but significant benefit over measuring BAO alone.  (+info)

Stomachs of mice lacking the gastric H,K-ATPase alpha -subunit have achlorhydria, abnormal parietal cells, and ciliated metaplasia. (2/79)

The H,K-ATPase of the gastric parietal cell is the most critical component of the ion transport system mediating acid secretion in the stomach. To study the requirement of this enzyme in the development, maintenance, and function of the gastric mucosa, we used gene targeting to prepare mice lacking the alpha-subunit. Homozygous mutant (Atp4a(-/-)) mice appeared healthy and exhibited normal systemic electrolyte and acid-base status but were achlorhydric and hypergastrinemic. Immunocytochemical, histological, and ultrastructural analyses of Atp4a(-/-) stomachs revealed the presence of chief cells, demonstrating that the lack of acid secretion does not interfere with their differentiation. Parietal cells were also present in normal numbers, and despite the absence of alpha-subunit mRNA and protein, the beta-subunit was expressed. However, Atp4a(-/-) parietal cells had dilated canaliculi and lacked typical canalicular microvilli and tubulovesicles, and subsets of these cells contained abnormal mitochondria and/or massive glycogen stores. Stomachs of adult Atp4a(-/-) mice exhibited metaplasia, which included the presence of ciliated cells. We conclude that ablation of the H,K-ATPase alpha-subunit causes achlorhydria and hypergastrinemia, severe perturbations in the secretory membranes of the parietal cell, and metaplasia of the gastric mucosa; however, the absence of the pump appears not to perturb parietal cell viability or chief cell differentiation.  (+info)

Acute gastritis with hypochlorhydria: report of 35 cases with long term follow up. (3/79)

BACKGROUND: Between 1976 and 1987, 35 cases of acute gastritis with hypochlorhydria (AGH) were seen in our research laboratory. The aims of this study were to determine the natural history of AGH and the role of Helicobacter pylori in its pathogenesis. METHODS: Archived serum and gastric biopsy samples obtained from AGH subjects were examined for evidence of H pylori colonisation. Twenty eight of 33 (85%) surviving AGH subjects returned a mean of 12 years after AGH for follow up studies, including determination of H pylori antibodies, basal and peak acid output, endoscopy, and gastric biopsies. A matched control group underwent the same studies. RESULTS: Archived material provided strong evidence of new H pylori acquisition in a total of 14 subjects within two months, in 18 within four months, and in 22 within 12 months of recognition of AGH. Prevalence of H pylori colonisation at follow up was 82% (23 of 28) in AGH subjects, significantly (p<0.05) higher than in matched controls (29%). Basal and peak acid output returned to pre-AGH levels in all but two subjects. CONCLUSIONS: One of several possible initial manifestations of H pylori acquisition in adults may be AGH. While H pylori colonisation usually persists, hypochlorhydria resolves in most subjects.  (+info)

Heterogeneity of gastric histology and function in food cobalamin malabsorption: absence of atrophic gastritis and achlorhydria in some patients with severe malabsorption. (4/79)

BACKGROUND: The common but incompletely understood entity of malabsorption of food bound cobalamin is generally presumed to arise from gastritis and/or achlorhydria. AIM: To conduct a systematic comparative examination of gastric histology and function. SUBJECTS: Nineteen volunteers, either healthy or with low cobalamin levels, were prospectively studied without prior knowledge of their absorption or gastric status. METHODS: All subjects underwent prospective assessment of food cobalamin absorption by the egg yolk cobalamin absorption test, endoscopy, histological grading of biopsies from six gastric sites, measurement of gastric secretory function, assay for serum gastrin and antiparietal cell antibodies, and direct tests for Helicobacter pylori infection. RESULTS: The six subjects with severe malabsorption (group I) had worse histological scores overall and lower acid and pepsin secretion than the eight subjects with normal absorption (group III) or the five subjects with mild malabsorption (group II). However, histological findings, and acid and pepsin secretion overlapped considerably between individual subjects in group I and group III. Two distinct subgroups of three subjects each emerged within group I. One subgroup (IA) had severe gastric atrophy and achlorhydria. The other subgroup (IB) had little atrophy and only mild hypochlorhydria; the gastric findings were indistinguishable from those in many subjects with normal absorption. Absorption improved in the two subjects in subgroup IB and in one subject in group II who received antibiotics, along with evidence of clearing of H pylori. None of the subjects in group IA responded to antibiotics. CONCLUSIONS: Food cobalamin malabsorption arises in at least two different gastric settings, one of which involves neither gastric atrophy nor achlorhydria. Malabsorption can respond to antibiotics, but only in some patients. Food cobalamin malabsorption is not always synonymous with atrophic gastritis and achlorhydria, and hypochlorhydria does not always guarantee food cobalamin malabsorption.  (+info)

Hypochlorhydria induced by a proton pump inhibitor leads to intragastric microbial production of acetaldehyde from ethanol. (5/79)

BACKGROUND: Acetaldehyde, produced locally in the digestive tract, has recently been shown to be carcinogenic in humans. AIM: To examine the effect of iatrogenic hypochlorhydria on intragastric acetaldehyde production from ethanol after a moderate dose of alcohol, and to relate the findings to the changes in gastric flora. METHODS: Eight male volunteers ingested ethanol 0.6 g/kg b.w. The pH, acetaldehyde level and microbial counts of the gastric juice were then determined. The experiment was repeated after 7 days of lansoprazole 30 mg b.d. RESULTS: The mean (+/- S.E.M.) pH of the gastric juice was 1.3 +/- 0.06 and 6.1 +/- 0.5 (P < 0.001) before and after lansoprazole, respectively. This was associated with a marked overgrowth of gastric aerobic and anaerobic bacteria (P < 0. 001), by a 2.5-fold (P=0.003) increase in gastric juice acetaldehyde level after ethanol ingestion, and with a positive correlation (r=0. 90, P < 0.001) between gastric juice acetaldehyde concentration and the count of aerobic bacteria. CONCLUSIONS: Treatment with proton pump inhibitors leads to hypochlorhydria, which associates with intragastric overgrowth of aerobic bacteria and microbially-mediated acetaldehyde production from ethanol. Since acetaldehyde is a local carcinogen in the concentrations found in this study, long-term use of gastric acid secretory inhibitors is a potential risk-factor for gastric and cardiac cancers.  (+info)

Assessment of gastric acidity of Japanese subjects over the last 15 years. (6/79)

The gastric acidity of young to elderly Japanese subjects from 1989 to 1999 was assessed and compared with that obtained in 1984, using GA-Test capsules containing acid-dissolving granules of riboflavin. The percentage of achlorhydric subjects increased with age as observed before, however, an over all decrease in all age categories year by year was noted. The percentage of achlorhydric subjects aged 50 years in 1995-1999 was about 40%, which was lower than that (60%) in 1984. However, such a chronological change was not observed when the percentage of achlorhydric subjects was determined according to birth year, indicating that it is related to the birth year of subjects. The percentage of achlorhydric subjects correlated with infection by Helicobacter pylori. Considering the high percentage of achlorhydric elderly, bioavailability and bioequivalence studies should be performed taking into consideration the effects of gastric acidity on the in vivo performance of drug products.  (+info)

Marginal ulcer in achlorhydric patients. (7/79)

Recurrent gastrojejunal ulceration is reported in three patients with histamine-fast achlorhydria. In none of these patients was extruding suture material responsible for the ulceration. However, all three patients had a history of alcohol abuse, and one abused aspirin as well. These cases demonstrate that achlorhydria does not protect against anastomotic ulceration. It is suggested that surgical manipulation produces an increased susceptibility to mucosal damage, and that it is erroneous to consider all anastomotic ulceration as a continuation or recurrence of acid peptic disease.  (+info)

Vagal impairment of gastric secretion in diabetic autonomic neuropathy. (8/79)

Gastric acid output in response to insulin-induced hypoglycaemia and pentagastrin was measured in 18 diabetic patients with symptoms of autonomic neuropathy. Two patients had achlorhydria but the rest responded normally to pentagastrin. The acid output evoked by insulin-induced hypoglycaemia was low in 10 of the 16 patients who secreted acid in response to pentagastrin. These changes suggest that vagal impairment is common in diabetics with autonomic symptoms, which might explain the infrequency of duodenal ulcer in diabetics.  (+info)

SUMMARY: Binary suspensions of bacteria isolated from the gastric juice of achlorhydric patients were used to determine conditions which favour nitrite accumulation during nitrate reduction. Suspensions of Veillonella parvula and Haemophilus parainfluenzae accumulated nitrite during nitrate reduction in the absence of nitrite-reducing Neisseria subflava or Streptococcus sanguis. The maximum concentration of nitrite that transiently accumulated decreased predictably as the ratio of nitrite-removing bacteria to nitrite-accumulating bacteria increased. This ratio, but more importantly the bacterial density, determined the duration of nitrite accumulation. These results are correlated with the previously reported tendency of nitrite to accumulate in the gastric juice of hypogammaglobulinaemic and pernicious anaemic patients, and with the extremely high incidence of gastric cancer in the two groups.

Defective absorption of calcium has been thought to exist in patients with achlorhydria. Hunt et al found gastric secretion of acid is required for the absorption of calcium from carbonate; however, absorption of calcium from calcium monocitrate was consistent irrespective of pH.20 Recker et al also found decreased absorption of calcium from the carbonate form in patients with achlorhydria. They found absorption of calcium as a pH-adjusted citrate salt was superior to carbonate in individuals with normal gastric acidity, and absorption of the citrate salt was not negatively affected by decreased gastric acidity. In fact, their findings indicate absorption of calcium as a citrate salt was significantly higher in individuals with achlorhydria than in subjects with normal gastric acidity.27 In contrast to these studies suggesting the requirement of HCl for absorption of calcium from carbonate, Bo-Linn et al concluded stomach acid production was not important in absorption of calcium from carbonate ...
In the early twentieth century various investigators believed that patients with reduced gastric acid secretion were especially susceptible to bacterial enteric infections. Since many bacteria are promptly killed in an acidic environment, gastric acidity was thought to act as a barrier to ingested microorganisms. Despite a century of study, the concept of a gastric barrier to ingested microorganisms is still insufficiently understood. In this paper we update the older observations and discuss the interaction between bacteria and gastric acid, and other variables that may influence the survival of ingested bacteria in the stomach. In addition to recent data dealing with nontyphoidal salmonellosis, cholera, and shigellosis, we present information pertinent to other bacterial and parasitic enteric diseases. We believe that the available data, although incomplete, support the concept that gastric hypochlorhydria or achlorhydria increases both susceptibility to and severity of bacterial and ...

Gliding Through the Golden Years Gracefully By Dr. Jen Morganti, NEEDS Education Director Aging is a process in life we all have to go through. Regardless of how much we try to deny or escape it, the undeniable fact is that over time, our bodies naturally deteriorate. Take heart though, we have the power to take steps that can minimize our decay and enable us to embrace the wonders of aging. For many people, the digestive system takes the biggest hit through the course of the aging process, bringing on problems such as gastric atrophy (damage to stomach cells) and subsequent hypo- and achlorhydria (low or no gastric secretion), decreased pancreatic enzyme production or secretion, and decreased bile production.1 Gastric atrophy becomes more likely as our age increases, and can be linked to chronic gastritis and/or H. pylori infection. It leads to hypo- or achlorhydria, and studies show that it occurs at rates ranging from 30 to 60 percent of adults over 60 years of age. This damage is

The mean gastric pH on therapy was significantly igher in the treatment group (7.88 ± 0.37) than in the ontrol group (5.00 ± 0.55) (p , 0.001), and the gastric H was noted to be ,7 on 95% of the occasions in the treatment group and on 8.6% of the occasions in the control group. An overall control of bleeding was chieved in 92.3% of the patients in the treatment group and 50% of the patients in the control group (p , .05). Thus, the failure of therapy was significantly more common in the control group than in the treatment group (p , .05), and more patients of the control group had to indergo emergency surgery than that in the treatment group.

The lowering acid level itself can make symptoms similar to gastroesophageal reflux disease, and hinders protein digestion by holding back the enzyme pepsin. Pepsin needs a low gastric PH to become active. Low acid levels in the stomach are also linked with bacteria growing too much, which can stop the body taking in nutrients or vitamins. ...

PCAs target gastric H+/K+ATPase (4). Acid output was lower in PCA+ patients. Achlorhydria interrupts the negative feedback of somatostatin on antral G-cells, thus inducing hypergastrinemia, a trophic stimulus for ECL cell proliferation. We and others demonstrated a positive correlation between gastrin and ECL cell density (21,27). Also, CgA levels were increased in all patients with ECL cell hyper/dysplasia. ECL cells may release CgA into the circulation (21,22). Multivariate regression showed that the CgA level was determined by ECL cell density and gastrin level, as shown before (13,21,22,28).. The degree of ECL cell hyper/dysplasia is important in determining the risk of carcinoid tumor. CgA may indicate the presence of an increased gastric ECL cell mass more accurately than histology. This is supported by the correlations we found between CgA and gastrin and ECL cell proliferative changes. The assessment of gastric ECL cell proliferation is hampered by the fact that such lesions are usually ...

Cobalamin (vitamin B12) deficiency is highly prevalent in the US and worldwide. Deficiency is most common in the elderly, with an average prevalence ≈25% over age 60 y. About 40% of older persons with low serum cobalamin have food cobalamin malabsorption (F-CM), in which gastric atrophy/achlorhydria and/or dysfunction is implicated. Because of the prevalence of deficiency in those over age 60 y, it is generally recommended that the elderly consume a higher proportion of their cobalamin from fortified foods than what is recommended for younger people. However there is considerable debate about whether crystalline cobalamin is absorbed as well by the elderly with F-CM as it is by younger people, especially if it is added as a fortificant to food. The data to be collected in this study will provide information useful to on-going deliberations concerning the future fortification of wheat flour with vitamin B12 in the United States ...
Vitamin B12 is essential for DNA synthesis and for cellular energy production. This review aims to outline the metabolism of vitamin B12, and to evaluate the causes and consequences of sub-clinical vitamin B12 deficiency. Vitamin B12 deficiency is common, mainly due to limited dietary intake of animal foods or malabsorption of the vitamin. Vegetarians are at risk of vitamin B12 deficiency as are other groups with low intakes of animal foods or those with restrictive dietary patterns. Malabsorption of vitamin B12 is most commonly seen in the elderly, secondary to gastric achlorhydria. The symptoms of sub-clinical deficiency are subtle and often not recognized. The long-term consequences of sub-clinical deficiency are not fully known but may include adverse effects on pregnancy outcomes, vascular, cognitive, bone and eye health.
Vitamin C is the L-ascorbic acid in man while the isomer D-ascorbic acid is biologically inactive. It is water soluble white in color and odorless substance with a sour taste. Ascorbic acid is easily destroyed by heat, oxidation and exposure to air especially in the presence of iron and copper ions. Alkalies also destroy it and therefore its absorption is decreased in achlorhydria. Its chemical names are ascorbic acid, and ascorbyl palmitate. Man and other animal cannot make vitamin C in their bodies and for this reason it is vitamin for them. The inability to produce this vitamin is due to lack of enzyme L-gluonolactone oxidase.. ...

When adults have a pale stool with no other symptoms, it is usually safe to wait and see if the stool returns to normal. Hypochlorhydria, or low stomach acid, may be a sign of an underlying condition, including H. pylori infection or vitamin deficiency. Footstools where generally interchangeable in everyday life from the 17th through the early 19th century. Passing stool fewer than three times in a week, particularly where the stool is hard and there is straining to defecate is medically considered to be constipation.

Stomach acid is one of the bodys defences against bugs which enter our body. If we dont have enough stomach acid, we may be at increased risk of infection. Low stomach acid, also known as hypochlorhydria may occur for a wide array of reasons including low zinc levels, old age, antacid use, or other causes. Studies have found that people suffering from some conditions, such as asthma and eczema, have an increased likelihood of having low stomach acid. You can check whether you have low stomach acid by doing the very classy Bicarb Burp Test. This involves the following: First thing in the morning, before you eat or drink anything, mix a generous one quarter teaspoon of baking soda in eight ounces of cold water. Drink this delicious concoction and have a stopwatch at the ready to see how long it takes you to burp. If you have not burped after five minutes, stop timing. The earlier and the more repetedly you burp, the higher your stomach acid is. So if you belch within the first 2 minutes, you ...

View full article , The real diagnosis for food-cobalamin malabsorption syndrome is hypochlorhydria. Abstract. In naturopathic medicine, we sometimes use diagnoses that are not widely used by mainstream (conventional) medicine. One such diagnosis is hypochlorhydria, which refers to an increased gastric pH as a result of deficient hydrochloric acid (HCl) and pepsin secretion. Hypochlorhydria has occasionally been mentioned as a factor in certain medical conditions (e.g., pernicious anemia, alcoholism, and partial gastrectomies),1 but has received minimal recognition as a diagnostic consideration.. Authors: Jonathan Prousky, N.D., FRSH. Keywords:food-cobalamin malabsorption syndrome, hypochlorhydria, supplemental hydrochloric acid, pepsin. ...
Introduction Autoimmune chronic atrophic gastritis (CAG) causes hypochlorhydria and hypergastrinaemia, that may result in enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cell hyperplasia and gastric neuroendocrine tumours (type 1 gastric NETs). 6, 9, 12 and 24 weeks, we assessed circulating gastrin and CgA and evaluated protection and tolerability. Outcomes Netazepide was secure and well tolerated. Abundances of CgA (p 0.05), histidine decarboxylase (p 0.05) and matrix metalloproteinase-7(p 0.10) were reduced at 6 and 12 weeks, but were raised again at follow-up. Also, plasma CgA was decreased at 3 Eprosartan supplier weeks (p 0.01), remained thus until 12 weeks, but grew up again in follow-up. Tumours had been fewer and how big is the biggest one was smaller sized (p 0.05) at 12 weeks, and remained so at follow-up. Serum gastrin was unaffected. Summary The decrease in abundances, plasma CgA, and tumour quantity and size by netazepide display that type 1 NETs are gastrin-dependent tumours. Failing of netazepide to ...
John McLaren-Howard has again come up with a brilliant suggestion for a simple test to diagnose hypochlorhydria. The idea here is that it is very difficult for the stomach to produce stomach acid. The normal acidity of blood is about pH7, but the acidity of stomach acid can be as low as pH 2 or below. That means that hydrogen ions (which create acidity) are a 100,000 times more concentrated in the stomach than in the bloodstream. So the stomach wall has a very difficult job to do. The gastric parietal cells need quite a bit of energy from ATP to pump hydrogen ions from the inside of the parietal cell into the lumen of the stomach. The difficult bit is stopping these hydrogen ions leaking back again. This is achieved because the gastric parietal cells forming a protective barrier between each other at the cell membrane tight junction to stop hydrogen ions leaking back. Because this is extremely hard work and the body does not want to waste energy, the main regulator for the cell membrane tight ...
Lysosomes are membrane-bound organelles that serve as the major degradative compartments for endocytic, phagocytic, and autophagic materials targeted for destruction in eukaryotic cells. Lysosomes also mediate some cell death pathways and play crucial roles in wound repair. Indeed, lysosomal dysfunction is a hallmark of many diseases, including some referred to as lysosomal storage disorders. Given this central importance of lysosomes, it is striking that little is known about how lysosomes are formed, the process we refer to as lysosome biogenesis.. Mucolipidosis type IV is a neurodegenerative lysosomal storage disorder that is characterized by severe psychomotor retardation, achlorhydria, and ophthalmological abnormalities; most tissues show lysosomal defects resulting in abnormally enlarged vacuoles that accumulate various material. In spite of this general lysosomal defect, neurons are the primary cells that die in Mucolipidosis type IV patients. Mucolipidosis type IV is due to mutations in ...
ABSTRACT. Acid-related disorders, including gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD), duodenal ulcers, and gastric ulcers, are managed by H2 receptor antagonists and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). PPIs represent first choice for treating acid-peptic ulcers inhibits the gastric- H+/ K+ -ATPase through covalent binding to cysteine residues of the proton pump. Achlorhydria and acute renal failure are the most common drawbacks. A reversible acid pump antagonist (APAs), currently in clinical trial removes these problems. The APAs are the conceivable future drugs for the treatment of acid-peptic disorders.. Keywords: Proton pump, Proton pump inhibitors, Acid secretion, Acid related disorders.. ...
Self-experimentation refers to the special case of single-subject research in which the experimenter conducts the experiment on himself or herself. Usually this means that a single person is the designer, operator, subject, analyst, and user or reporter of the experiment. Current champions of self-experimentation include the late Seth Roberts, Tim Ferriss, and a sprawling community of Quantified Self Human scientific self-experimentation principally (though not necessarily) falls into the fields of medicine and psychology. Self-experimentation has a long and well-documented history in medicine which continues to the present day. For example, after failed attempts to infect piglets in 1984, Barry Marshall drank a petri dish of the Helicobacter pylori from a patient, and soon developed gastritis, achlorhydria, stomach discomfort, nausea, vomiting, and halitosis.[citation needed] The results were published in 1985 in the Medical Journal of Australia, and is among the most cited articles from the ...

The H. pylori gene was present in only 6 of the 41 samples. This was expected because, when H. pylori has been present for many years and the stomach becomes atrophic and hypochlorhydric, the intragastric environment is no longer optimal for H. pylori. Competing faecal-type organisms are then able to colonise the stomach. Furthermore, H. pylori is able to colonise only normal gastric cells, and not those that have differentiated into intestinal metaplasia. Therefore, H. pylori disappears from the stomach when atrophy and intestinal metaplasia supervene. In patients who are most likely to develop gastric cancer (those with extensive intestinal metaplasia and atrophy) and those already with advanced cancer, as in our cases, the serology is often negative and the genes will almost always not be detectable by PCR.. No significant relationship was found between age and either IL-1RN or IL-1B in gastric carcinoma from Kenyan patients; the chi-square test for both was not significant: p=0.9 for IL-1RN ...

Consumption of the green flesh kiwifruit (Actinidia deliciosa, Hayward variety) is known to relieve constipation and provide relief from symptoms of digestive dysfunction, but the effect is poorly researched and a credible explanation and mechanism has not been documented. This body of work aimed to increase the understanding of the effects of kiwifruit on the digestion process. There is some evidence that the mechanism may be due to the proteolytic properties of actinidin, a unique protease in kiwifruit. Actinidin has a wide pH-dependent reactivity between pH 2.5 - 6 with an optimum at pH 3.0 - 3.5; equivalent to low acid conditions more associated with hypochlorhydria than the pH range of 1.5 - 2.5 normally associated with efficient gastric hydrolysis of protein. It was hypothesised that in vitro and in vivo the digestion of protein would be facilitated by the presence of the kiwifruit protease, particularly when pH exceeded normal fasting gastric pH. A sequence of studies to measure the ...

The Heidelberg test is like a window into the digestive system. It tells us about food absorption and digestion by obtaining an accurate measurement of the pH balance of the stomach. The Heidelberg pH Capsule is a high-frequency radio transmitter and pH sensor encapsulated within a special polyacrylate (plastic) covering. The capsule is about the size of a multi-vitamin and is designed to be swallowed. It measures and transmits the pH levels in the digestive system and the re-acidification time of the stomachs parietal cells. The Heidelberg Capsule system is one of the most valuable tools a doctor can have for safely and accurately determining disorders of digestion. Mal-absorption, stomach gas, belching, bloating, flatulence and irritable bowels can be addressed more thoroughly when the pH of the stomach is monitored. This test will accurately diagnose a patient who may have hypochlorhydria (low stomach acid), hyperchlorhydria (high stomach acid), achlorhydria (no stomach acid), pyloric ...
Pharmacokinetics Absorption Ketoconazole is a weak dibasic agent and thus requires acidity for dissolution and absorption.. Mean peak plasma concentrations of approximately 3.5 mcg/mL are reached within 1 to 2 hours, following oral administration of a single 200 mg dose taken with a meal. Oral bioavailability is maximal when the tablets are taken with a meal.. Absorption of ketoconazole tablets is reduced in subjects with reduced gastric acidity, such as subjects taking medications known as acid neutralizing medicines (e.g. aluminum hydroxide) and gastric acid secretion suppressors (e.g. H2-receptor antagonists, proton pump inhibitors) or subjects with achlorhydria caused by certain diseases. (See Section PRECAUTIONS: DRUG INTERACTIONS.) Absorption of ketoconazole under fasted conditions in these subjects is increased when ketoconazole tablets are administered with an acidic beverage (such as non-diet cola). After pretreatment with omeprazole, a proton pump inhibitor, the bioavailability of a ...

Intestinal absorption was investigated in six patients with a diagnosis of primary hypogammaglobulinemia. Malabsorption was found in four patients. Low serum vitamin E levels, decreased D-xylose absorption, and increased 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid excretion in the urine correlated with malabsorption with minor exceptions. Five patients were subjected to jejunal biopsies, and nodular lymphoid hyperplasia was found on at least one examination in each of these patients. In addition, partial to complete mucosal atrophy characterized biopsy specimens from four patients and correlated with steatorrhea with one exception. Although gastric achlorhydria (two patients), minimal to moderate pancreatic insufficiency (two patients), significant intestinal intraluminal bacterial overgrowth (three patients), and Giardia lamblia (five patients) were found, the evidence suggests that the most significant cause of malabsorption in these hypogammaglobulinemic patients is an intestinal mucosal lesion. Reversibility ...
Co-administration with atazanavir. Co-administration of atazanavir with proton pump inhibitors is not recommended. If the combination of atazanavir with a proton pump inhibitor is judged unavoidable , close clinical monitoring (e.g. virus load) is recommended in combination with an increase in the dose of atazanavir to 400 mg with 100 mg of ritonavir . A pantoprazole dose of 20 mg per day should not be exceeded.. Influence on vitamin B12 absorption. Pantoprazole, as all acid-blocking medicines, may reduce the absorption of vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin ) due to hypo- or achlorhydria. This should be considered in patients with reduced body stores or risk factors for reduced vitamin B12 absorption on long-term therapy or if respective clinical symptoms are observed..

Sonic Hedgehog and Gastric Cancer. Studies from my lab focus on the role of bacterial colonization and the development of type B chronic atrophic gastritis in a mouse model. Chronic atrophic gastritis is a precursor lesion in the development of intestinal metaplasia and gastric cancer. We found that the gastrin-deficient mice, which are hypochlorhydric, develop antral gastric tumors within 9 -12 months of age. The tumors appear to be dependent on the microflora. Gastric atrophy exemplified by loss of the acid-secreting parietal cell precedes tumor development as observed in human subjects. We found that Helicobacter infection coincides with acute secretion of Shh from the parietal cells then eventually reduced Shh expression prior to parietal cell atrophy. Apparently pro-inflammatory cytokines, e.g., IL-1b, are sufficient to suppress parietal cell acid secretion and Shh gene expression (Waghray, M et al, Gastroenterology 2010). We showed that gastric acid stimulates Shh gene expression through ...

It affects males and females equally. The most common form, Adult Onset Pernicious Anemia, affects people after the age of 35 years. Studies suggest that about 1% of the elderly population is affected. Congenital Pernicious Anemia is very rare and has an onset of age between 4 and 28 months. Juvenile Pernicious Anemia has symptoms similar to the adult-onset type, seems to occur between the ages of 4 and 20 years. North America and in Europe among people of Scandinavian, English, or Irish descent has the higher prevalence. It is extremely rare among Asians. Approximately 1.9% of cases may go undiagnosed. Pernicious anemia shows a 10-fold increase in patients with multiple myeloma and a 250-fold increase in adults with immunoglobulin deficiency. ...
Over 2300-years ago the father of medicine, Hippocrates made the statement that all disorders start in the stomach. That statement is true today as it was long ago. Bronchial Asthma originates from and affliction of the stomach and gastro-intestinal tract. In many cases before the onset of the disease, patients will complain of indigestion, constipation or diarrhea abdominal pain, etc. Gastric secretion of Hydrochloric acid, following a standardized meal was studied in 200 Asthmatic children (ages 6 months to 12 years), and compared with a control group of 200 non-asthmatic children. Clinical studies show that 85% of the Asthmatic children had pH levels of Hydrochloric acid in their stomachs below normal, while only 2% of the non-asthmatic children has similar low acid levels. The study showed that the lack of sufficiently strong acid in the stomach (Hypochlorhydria) prevented the activation of the peptic enzymes. This resulted in incomplete digestion of the food and macromolecule absorption. ...
