Gastric acid measurement is useful in assessing the effectiveness of antisecretory drugs, however, the conventional tests involve invasive nasogastric intubation. Orally administered (13)C-labeled calcium carbonate (Ca(13)CO3) reacts with gastric acid to produce (13)C-labeled carbon dioxide ((13)CO2), which is then excreted in the breath. The objective of this study was to ...

The core function of the human stomach is as an aid to digestion. The four key components of gastric digestive function are its function as a reservoir, acid secretion, enzyme secretion and its role in gastrointestinal motility. The reservoir capacity of the stomach allows it to increase its volume significantly ...

Proton pump inhibitor (PPI) use increases the risk of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) despite C. difficile spores being acid resistant. Swallowed saliva contains nitrite which reacts with gastric acid, producing bactericidal nitrogen oxides. With 5mM nitrite at pH 2 (reflecting normal gastric conditions) all C. difficile spores were killed within 15min. No ...

Nicorandil, a nicotinamide ester, was first reported to be involved in the induction of oral ulcers in 1997. Since then, many reports of single or multiple nicorandil-induced ulcerations (NIUs) have been reported. We hypothesised that in the case of high-dosage nicorandil or after an increased dosage of nicorandil, nicotinic acid ...

Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and gastric acid hypersecretion respond well to suppression of gastric acid secretion. However, clinical management and research in diseases of acid secretion have been hindered by the lack of a non-invasive, accurate and reproducible tool to measure gastric acid output (GAO). Thus, symptoms or, in refractory ...

Even-number, medium-chain dicarboxylic acids (DAs), naturally occurring in higher plants, are a promising alternative energy substrate. Unlike the homologous fatty acids, DAs are soluble in water as salts. They are β-oxidized, providing acetyl-CoA and succinyl-CoA, the latter being an intermediate of the tricarboxylic acid cycle. Sebacic acid and dodecanedioic acid, ...
