The distribution of gastric ulcers: double contrast barium meal and endoscopy findings

Clinical Radiology
G Stevenson


One thousand consecutive double contrast barium meals and 424 consecutive upper gastrointestinal endoscopic examinations have been reviewed. 70 gastric ulcers were found radiologically in 56 patients and 82 gastric ulcers endoscopically in 70 patients. 55% of radiological and 53.6% of endoscopic ulcers were located in the mid or upper body of the stomach. The distribution is contrary to previous radiological findings with the traditional barium meal. Age did not seem to be a major factor. The double contrast meal and in particular the left anterior oblique view with the head elevated, display en face the lesser curve of the upper body around the cardia where many benign ulcers and carcinomas arise.

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.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh Isoimmunization

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.

Enzyme Evolution

This feed focuses on molecular models of enzyme evolution and new approaches (such as adaptive laboratory evolution) to metabolic engineering of microorganisms. Here is the latest research.
