  • Helicobacter
  • Achlorhydria associated with Helicobacter pylori infection may respond to H pylori eradication therapy, although resumption of gastric acid secretion may only be partial and it may not always reverse the condition completely. (wikipedia.org)
  • digestive
  • It exchanges potassium from the intestinal lumen with cytoplasmic hydronium and is the enzyme primarily responsible for the acidification of the stomach contents and the activation of the digestive enzyme pepsin (see gastric acid). (wikipedia.org)
  • severe
  • A severe esophageal spasm attack is a truly helpless feeling as you cannot sit, stand or lie down and you might be literally rolling with the pain. (naturazi.com)
  • Individuals with more severe forms of LPR may experience abrasion of tooth enamel due to intermittent presence of gastric contents in the oral cavity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Norfloxacin is used for prevention of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis in cirrhotic patients who have a low ascites fluid protein level, impaired renal function, severe liver disease, have had a prior episode of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, or esophageal variceal bleeding. (wikipedia.org)
  • this can occur due to bleeding directly from a gastric ulcer, or from damage to the esophagus from severe/continuing vomiting. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hydrogen
  • Gastric hydrogen potassium ATPase, also known as H+/K+ ATPase, is an enzyme which functions to acidify the stomach. (wikipedia.org)
  • The gastric hydrogen potassium ATPase or H+/K+ ATPase is the proton pump of the stomach. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sensitivity of key signals in the NMR spectrum to small changes in pH suggested that the uracil ring exists in a keto/enol tautomeric relationship, where a hydrogen transfer results in two distinct structures (Figure 2). (wikipedia.org)
  • acidic
  • Since acidic pH facilitates the absorption of iron, achlorhydric patients often develop iron deficiency anemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • muscles
  • Of particular importance is a high-pressure gradient of 10-30 mm Hg maintained by tonic contraction of the circular muscles of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). (hindawi.com)
  • painful
  • I am sure you will agree if I say that Esophageal spasm is probably one of the most uncomfortable and painful conditions one can have. (naturazi.com)
