Previous research has confirmed that duodenobiliary reflux exists in patients with choledocholithiasis. The objective of this study was to investigate whether the motor activity of the sphincter of Oddi (SO) has an effect on duodenobiliary reflux. A total of 51 patients orally ingested 1mL water containing technetium-99m diethylenetriaminepentaacetatic acid, and a 2-h bile collection was obtained from the T tube. Technetium counts in the collected bile were performed using an RM905 radioactivity meter. The patients were divided into two groups: reflux group (duodenobiliary reflux positive) and control group (duodenobiliary reflux negative). Next, 33 cases were randomly selected and double blinded to receive SO manometry by choledochoscope. Of the 51 total cases, 16 bile samples exhibited radioactivity. The average SO basal pressure and contraction pressure values were 7.2±3.9mmHg and 53.5±24.5mmHg, respectively, in the reflux group, and 14.7±11.0mmHg and 117.2±65.6mmHg, respectively, in the control group. The choledochus pressure values were 5.1±1.6mmHg and 11.5±7.4mmHg in the reflux group and the control group, respectively. The differences between the groups were statistically significant; however, the SO contraction frequenc...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.

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.
