Abstract

We treated 143 Helicobacter pylori positive ulcer patients (duodenal ulcer 81, gastric ulcer 24, pyloric ulcer nine, previous duodenal ulcer 27, others two) with a ten days regimen of bismuth subnitrate, oxytetracycline and metronidazole. Four weeks after cessation of treatment the 14C-urea breath test showed that the infection was eradicated in 133 out of 140 patients (95%). The ulcer had healed in 129 (97%) of the H. pylori negative patients. Status at one year after treatment showed that 121 (98.4%) of 123 patients who had become H. pylori negative had remained negative. None of the H. pylori negative patients experienced ulcer relapse. The results show that the treatment is effective and that the rate of recurrence of H. pylori during the first year is very low.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
