Electrogastrographic study of gastric myoelectrical activity in patients with unexplained nausea and vomiting

H GeldofJ L Grashuis


Using cutaneous electrodes an electrogastrographic study was made of gastric myoelectrical activity in both the fasting and postprandial states in 48 patients with unexplained nausea and vomiting and in 52 control subjects. A gastric emptying study, using a radio-labelled solid phase meal, was carried out in 30 of these 48 patients. A follow up study was done after one year. In 48% of the patients abnormal myoelectrical activity was found which was characterised by: instability of the gastric pacemaker frequency; tachygastrias in both the fasting and postprandial states; the absence of the normal amplitude increase in the postprandial electrogastrogram. This last characteristic was correlated with a delayed gastric emptying of solids. The present study shows that with electrogastrography in a heterogeneous group of patients with unexplained nausea and vomiting a subgroup can be discerned with abnormal myoelectrical activity. Our findings suggests that this abnormal myoelectrical activity is related to these symptoms.

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.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

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.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
