Since the 1960s, the instrumentation and technique of flexible endoscopic examination of the gastrointestinal tract have established it as the dominant modality for the diagnosis of gastrointestinal disease. The therapeutic potential of flexible endoscopy is rapidly expanding and transforming the endoscopist from a casual observer to an interventionalist who is able to respond to a variety of problems that could previously be addressed only by surgical intervention. The first generation of flexible endoscopes used fiberoptic bundles to transmit light into the intestinal lumen and
Before any pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic differences can be taken into consideration, it has to be remembered that ensuring compliance with medication is even more important than with adults. Often, several people need to be fully involved including the child, their parents, teachers and others. Clear explanations regarding rationale, side-effects and dosage schedules are needed and any fears must be allayed and all questions answered. There are specific pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic differences unique to early stages of development. Although factors such as gastric pH, gut flora and gut wall metabolism vary with age and can theoretically affect absorption, these variations cause little observed difference in absorption from childhood to adult life.3 However, the increased use of liquid formulations in pediatric practice leads to a more rapid rate, but not extent, of
The tools available to physicians and surgeons for the evaluation and therapy of upper gastrointestinal disease have improved. Although a detailed history and physical examination continue to be of paramount importance in the evaluation of gastrointestinal symptoms, a number of sophisticated new diagnostic and therapeutic modalities have emerged that facilitate a rapid and efficacious approach to these maladies.

Endogenous or exogenously ingested benzodiazepines may also play a role in the etiology of acute and chronic hepatic encephalopathy. In the past several years, dozens of basic science and clinical reports have appeared implicating these substances which enhance the inhibitory GABA-ergic tone. The gut flora has been postulated to contribute benzodiazepine ligand activity, which fits well with the general theory regarding the functional failure of hepatic clearance.37 Indeed, animal models of acute liver failure have demonstrated
Ambrose et al. studied 46 patients with Crohn's disease prior to surgery and compared these results with a control group of 43 patients with a variety of nonulcerative abdominal disorders (72) (see Table 7.2). They were able to culture intestinal bacteria from the mesenteric nodes in 33 of patients with ulcerative lesions compared to only 5 in the control group (p 0.01). Poten Deitch reported his results in 42 uninfected patients who underwent laparotomy for a variety of abdominal disorders, 17 of whom had intestinal obstruction and 25 of whom did not (73). Mesenteric lymph nodes were excised for bacteriologic culture at the beginning of surgery in these 42 patients. Ten of the 17 obstructed patients (59 ) had positive cultures for enteric bacteria compared to only one of 25 nonobstructed patients (p 0.01). All of the patients, none of whom had a necrotic bowel, had had perioperative antibiotic agents before surgery. The authors concluded that simple obstruction of the colon or small...
Host, and GI microbial genomes taken altogether may surpass their human host genetic diversity by a factor 100 53 . It is also well known that one of the main side effects of antibiotics is precisely to disturb this gut flora leading to displeasing digestive malfunctions. These intestinal hosts have a very active metabolic life, including cytochrome P450s that are interacting with host drug metabolism, producing active and inactive metabolites, as well as toxic metabolites, which in turn can display a whole range of remote toxicity, i.e., away from the intestinal tract 54 . Studying all the possible interactions between host, endogenous bacteria and antibiotics appears impossible, even using an 'omics approach. First, it is unlikely that we will soon determine the complete genome and the subsequent biology of the thousand odd species populating our guts, as some are even not known yet 53 . Second, the level of co-metabolism and metabolic exchanges are such that only a global approach,...
During radiation, almost all patients experience some alteration in gastrointestinal function. Symptoms include tenesmus, urgency, bleeding, diarrhea, and incontinence these resolve generally within 2 to 3 months after the completion of treatment. Rarely is aggressive therapy needed most patients can be treated with temporary cessation of radiation, fluid resuscitation, diet modification, and antidiarrheal medication.
Bacillus species are common spore-forming soil bacteria barely distinguishable at the genome sequence level (Helgason et al., 2000 Read et al., 2003 La Duc et al., 2004), yet this group of bacteria differs considerably in their virulence properties. B. subtilis is commonly used as a nonpathogenic laboratory model system for studying bacterial sporulation B. thuringien-sis produces a number of insecticidal toxins widely used as pesticides in agriculture and more recently in genetically modified plants to confer insect resistance B. cereus is a food-borne pathogen capable of causing human and animal gastrointestinal disease and B. anthracis is a human and animal pathogen that causes anthrax disease and has received much attention recently because of its potential use as a bioterror agent.
Another major problem of the premature infant is to ingest and absorb adequate food. If the infant is more than 2 months premature, the digestive and absorptive systems are almost always inadequate. The absorption of fat is so poor that the premature infant must have a low-fat diet. Furthermore, the premature infant has unusual difficulty in absorbing calcium and, therefore, can develop severe rickets before the difficulty is recognized. For this reason, special attention must be paid to adequate calcium and vitamin D intake.
Consumption of yoghurt and other fermented dairy products prepared with Lactobacillus, Streptococcus, and Bifidobacteria strains has increased all over the world in recent years. It is considered by both the general public and expert nutritionalist that they provide humans with major benefits protection from infection of intestinal pathogen microorganisms,123 stimulation of the immune system,124 as well as better digestion, and absorption of lactose and minerals,125 prevention of traveler's diarrhea,126 (Alm, 1991), reduction of diarrhea and rotavirus infection in infants,127 prevention of constipation in elderly people,126 contribution to a faster recolonization of the intestinal microflora after administration of antibiotics,128-131 improvement in lactose intolerance,132 reduction of cholesterol level in the blood,133 stimulation of the immune system,134 and improvement in defense against cancer.135 It has been demonstrated that Lactobacillus population in the human gastrointestinal...
Vitamin K is continually synthesized in the intestinal tract by bacteria, so that vitamin K deficiency seldom occurs in the normal person as a result of vitamin K absence from the diet (except in neonates before they establish their intestinal bacterial flora). However, in gastrointestinal disease, vitamin K deficiency often occurs as a result of poor absorption of fats from the gastrointestinal tract. The reason is that vitamin K is fat-soluble and ordinarily is absorbed into the blood along with the fats.
A carcinoma of the ascending colon would be predicted to have lymphatic drainage extending towards the origin of the ileocolic vessels and the right colic vessels (if present). As such, surgery would include ligation of the ileocolic lymphovascular pedicle close to its' origin as well as the right colic pedicle. The terminal ileum and right colon are thereby rendered ischemic and are resected. The apron of lymph nodes along the vascular pedicles are included with the specimen. The ileum is then anastomosed to the proximal transverse colon completing the right hemicolectomy. Gastrointestinal function is usually well preserved despite even extensive colectomy. Therefore, generous resections of the colon are well tolerated with relatively minor effects on subsequent bowel function.
Much of the literature discussed above reports studies carried out on rats. Some of the findings, such as the conversion of stevioside to steviol, may reflect the idiosyncracies of that species. Studies on a variety of species would give better insight into potential risk for human consumers. For example, such studies would include examination of human gut flora under a variety of conditions, and the metabolic abilities of biopsy or autopsied samples of liver and kidney.
Type D (Table 10.1) causes enterotoxemia in sheep,4 and is probably most prevalent in young lambs suckling heavily-lactating ewes. It is also the predominant cause of death in weaned animals up to nearly 1 year old, often in those fed rich rations in feedlots. The frequent association of enterotoxemia with upsets in the gut flora caused by an unmanaged change to a rich diet gives rise to the common name of the disease - overeating disease.91 Multiplication of the organism, production of e-toxin,92 and absorption from the gut83 lead to a toxemia with little enteritis. Peritoneal and pericardial effusions are typical.93 e-Toxin's effects on the central nervous system and other tissues result in sudden death, although some animals display dullness, opisthotonos, and convulsions before death.83'91 Hyperglycemia and glycosuria are pathognomonic,83'94 and pulpy kidney, another common name for the disease, derives from the commonly-found post mortem autolysis which rapidly occurs in...
Changes in the nails can reflect internal disease ( Fig,.28.-13). The great majority of these changes are nonspecific. One recent survey (Jemec) of nondermatologic in-patients found that the most common fingernail findings were absent lunulae (23 ), leukonychia (12 ), and red lunulae (5 ). The following significant associations were noted pulmonary disease and clubbing hematologic disease and brittle nails hematologic disease and Terry's nails gastrointestinal disease and pincer nails and gastrointestinal disease and subjective complaints. Only 0.4 of patients had onycholysis. The mean age of the population was 73 years. As people age, the lunule may become smaller. Also, there may be apparent leukonychia when the white lunule loses its well-defined distal border and extends forward so it is sometimes difficult to correctly segregate absent lunulae and leukonychia.
According to some sources, a diet too high in fiber may prevent your gut from absorbing enough iodine, and a strict sodium-free or salt-free diet may also prevent you from absorbing enough. However, given that iodine is present in so many foods, it's unlikely that you're suffering from iodine deficiency in North America.
Following infection with M. tuberculosis or M. bovis BCG, T-cell proliferation interferon gamma (INF-y) and other cytokine responses to hsp 65 and hsp 16 have been reported (32,33). The magnitude of hsp responses was similar to that found for other protein antigens. The hsp 65 epitope specificity of T cells from draining lymph nodes of primed mice was examined in respect to seven selected peptides (34). Immunodominant as sell as cryptic epitopes had been identified. Interestingly, the response to both immunodominant epitopes (153-171 and 180-196) was found to be H-2 permissive, whereas responses to cryptic peptide epitopes were found to be H-2 restricted. T cells stimulated with peptide 153-171 recognize also GroEL (hsp 60 from E. coli) hence implicating the potential role of sensitization with the gut flora. As antigen-presenting molecules, both IA and IE were shown to be involved in respect to peptide 65-85. The H-2-permissive responsiveness is not unique to hsp antigens and was...
Microbial stimulation, both from normal commensals and pathogens in the gastrointestinal and respiratory tract, is important for normal postnatal maturation of immune functions. We recently observed that the gut flora of Estonian and Swedish infants differ in several respects28 .The gut flora of Estonian infants is similar to the flora of European children some 20-30 years ago and more often comprises Lactobacilli and Eubacteria, and the numbers are higher than in Swedish infants. The potential significance of these findings were supported by an observation that colonisation with lactobacilli appears to be more intense in non allergic as compared to allergic children29.
