• organisms
  • Helicobacter organisms have been identified most commonly in the gastric tissue of dogs and cats, especially in the fundus and cardia of the stomach, but they are also found in the intestinal tract. (merckvetmanual.com)
  • There have been sporadic reports of Helicobacter organisms identified in the hepatic tissue of a dog with multifocal necrotizing hepatitis, as well as in healthy cats and in cats with cholangiohepatitis. (merckvetmanual.com)
  • A commercially available rapid urease test to detect production of bacterial urease in gastric biopsies can identify the presence of Helicobacter organisms. (merckvetmanual.com)
  • This assumption is supported by the presence of Helicobacter-like organisms, called GHLOs, in the vomit, feces and saliva of animals that have been infected. (petmd.com)
  • livers
  • There are some reports of isolation of Helicobacter from the livers of dogs with hepatitis but this remains anecdotal. (petmd.com)
  • antibiotic
  • A few months ago, working in collaboration with the Austrian Society of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, a team of researchers led by infectionologist Christoph Steininger from the Division of Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine at MedUni Vienna's Department of Medicine I conducted a large-scale study into antibiotic resistance of Helicobacter pylori in Austria. (healthcanal.com)
  • In most cases, the cause is unknown, although it may be preceded by a viral infection, antibiotic therapy, or emotional upset. (wikipedia.org)
  • Though an effective antibiotic when all others fail, against extremely drug resistant infections, it has many side effects. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • Treatment decisions for dogs and cats should be based on presence of Helicobacter , in combination with appropriate clinical signs and/or gastric lesions. (merckvetmanual.com)
  • 5 The host, and environmental and bacterial factors are important in the clinical manifestations of infections with this bacillus. (hkmj.org)
  • This immunological response may cause local damage as well as influence the clinical course of other diseases, including those outside the stomach, thus, opening the field of extragastric manifestations of HP infection. (hkmj.org)
  • parasitic
  • Hives including chronic spontaneous hives can be a complication and symptom of a parasitic infection, such as blastocystosis and strongyloidiasis among others. (wikipedia.org)
  • Parasitic infections strongly associated with cancer include Schistosoma haematobium (squamous cell carcinoma of the bladder) and the liver flukes, Opisthorchis viverrini and Clonorchis sinensis (cholangiocarcinoma). (wikipedia.org)
  • intestinal
  • Apart from its well-demonstrated role in gastroduodenal diseases, some authors have suggested a potential role of Helicobacter pylori infection in several extra-intestinal pathologies including haematological, cardiovascular, neurological, metabolic, autoimmune, and dermatological diseases. (hkmj.org)
  • Helicobacter pylori (HP) is a frequent gastro-intestinal infectious agent having worldwide distribution. (hkmj.org)
  • Causes
  • Causes of increased breakdown include a number of genetic conditions such as sickle cell anemia, infections like malaria, and certain autoimmune diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cancer causes 22.5% of deaths in the United States, so that about 2% of mortality in the United States appears to be due to cancers caused by infections. (wikipedia.org)
  • Worldwide, HPV causes the second largest fraction of infection-associated cancers or 5.2% of the global cancer burden. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other signs and symptoms may include the following: Nausea Vomiting (may be clear, green or yellow, blood-streaked or completely bloody depending on the severity of the stomach inflammation) Belching (does not usually relieve stomach pain if present) Bloating Early satiety Loss of appetite Unexplained weight loss Common causes include Helicobacter pylori and NSAIDs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other potential causes of the symptoms should be excluded including urinary tract infection and high thyroid levels. (wikipedia.org)
  • proton
  • As proton-pump inhibition can suppress infection, any treatment with this class of drug should be ceased 2 weeks prior to biopsy retrieval. (wikipedia.org)
  • therapeutic
  • H pylori infections in people are treated with double or triple antimicrobial agent therapy plus an acid secretory inhibitor (eg, clarithromycin , amoxicillin , bismuth, and ranitidine ) for 2 wk, and similar therapeutic approaches have been used in veterinary medicine. (merckvetmanual.com)
  • Furthermore, they also confirm the relevant role that short-term treatments may play in the therapeutic approach to H. pylori infection, and highlight some important aspects influencing short-term schedules. (ebscohost.com)
  • significantly
  • However, this diversity is significantly impaired when a Helicobacter infection is present. (healthcanal.com)
  • 20 ] reported that lower consumption of raw vegetables was significantly associated with higher risk of H. pylori infection in a group of Iranian students. (springer.com)
  • Systolic blood pressure was significantly higher in subjects with helicobacter infection before adjustment for age, sex, body mass index (weight (kg)/(height (m) 2 )), smoking, and high alcohol intake, but significantly lower after these adjustments (see table). (bmj.com)
  • methods
  • To diagnose and monitor the results of treatment for HP infection, serological methods may not be optimal, since antibodies may remain the blood for months after an infection is eliminated. (google.com.au)
  • H pylori infection had little effect on blood pressure in the general population in the age groups studied when methods designed to minimise potential sampling biases and selection biases were used. (bmj.com)
