Influence of hydrogen ion concentration on bile acid induced acute gastric mucosal ulcerogenesis

Annals of Surgery
W P Ritchie, K J Cherry


Aggressive treatment with H(2) receptor blocking agents and/or antacids has been advocated as effective prophylaxis against and treatment for "stress ulcer," based on the logical but infrequently tested assumption that the severity of the disease is critically determined by the concentration of intraluminal acid. The present study investigated this assumption in a model which employed topical acid, topical bile acid and mucosal ischemia to induce ulcerogenesis. With vascularized, chambered ex vivo wedges of canine proximal gastric wall, groups of animals were studied during three sequential periods using topical test solutions (TS) containing either 0 mM, 100 mM or 160 mM HCI. During period 1, mucosae were exposed to TS alone; during period 2, either to TS containing 1 mM sodium taurocholate (TC) or to TS and concomitant vasopressin infusion (VP); and during period 3, to TS + TC + VP. Parameters evaluated included net H(+) flux ( big up tri, openH(+)), aminopyrine clearance (AC), a measure of mucosal blood flow, net TC flux ( big up tri, openTC) and the lesion index, graded 0-5. The data indicate that in nonischemic mucosa exposed to constant [TC], AC was significantly increased, big up tri, openH(+) ("back-diffusion") increase...Continue Reading

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.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.

Artificial Intelligence in Cardiac Imaging

Artificial intelligence (ai) techniques are increasingly applied to cardiovascular (cv) medicine in cardiac imaging analysis. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

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.

Social learning involves learning new behaviors through observation, imitation and modeling. Follow this feed to stay up to date on the latest research.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.

Single Cell Chromatin Profiling

Techniques like ATAC-seq and CUT&Tag have the potential to allow single cell profiling of chromatin accessibility, histones, and TFs. This will provide novel insight into cellular heterogeneity and cell states. Discover the latest research on single cell chromatin profiling here.
