• Severity
  • The presence of the latter autoantibodies was significantly correlated with the severity of body gastritis, gastric mucosa atrophy, elevated fasting gastrin concentrations, and a decreased ratio of serum pepsinogen I:II. (bmj.com)
  • From all patients four biopsy specimens, two from the gastric antrum and two from the corpus mucosa, were examined for the presence, severity, and distribution of gastritis, as well as for intestinal metaplasia and atrophy on staining with haematoxylin and eosin. (bmj.com)

  • Long-term H. pylori infection in Mongolian gerbils led to progressive gastritis, glandular atrophy, hypergastrinemia, increased epithelial proliferation and elevated gene expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines. (diva-portal.org)
  • significance
  • Background and study aim: Various gastroscopic features may be interpreted as signs of gastritis, but the significance of such features in relation to histomorphology is uncertain. (diva-portal.org)
  • Bile
