Non-Invasive Predictors of Esophageal Varices in Patients with Liver Cirrhosis
BACKGROUND: The number of patients undergoing screening endoscopy for the presence of esophageal varices (EV) is increasing in Egypt as a result of the growing pool of patients with chronic liver diseases. AIM: The aim of the present study was to identify clinical, biochemical, and ultrasonographic parameters which might non-invasively predict the presence of EV in patients with liver cirrhosis. ...

Comparative Evaluation of the BACTEC MGIT 960 (Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tube) System with LJ Solid Medium for Diagnosis of Pulmonary Tuberculosis
Tuberculosis (TB), which is caused by infection with _Mycobacterium tuberculosis_, is responsible for about one third of preventable deaths worldwide. Accurate and rapid diagnosis of TB is essential for controlling the spread of the disease. The aim of this study was to evaluate the Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tube 690 [(MGIT 960), (M690)] which is a fully automated, non-invasive system for ... Read more

Gastritis; Helicobacter Pylori or Giardia Lamblia infection or Both?
INTRODUCTION:Infectionwith_Helicobacter pylori _is accepted as a main cause of gastritis and gastritis-associated diseases. _Giardia lamblia_parasite is considered the most common protozoal infection in human. Concomitant _H. pylori_and _Giardia_infection is common for their similar mode of transmission and strong correlation to socioeconomic levels, but only few reports had described gastric giardiasis. In this work, _H. pylori_and _Giardia lamblia_were detected by PCR ... Read more

Annexin A2 expression and phosphorylation are up-regulated in hepatocellular carcinoma
Annexins (ANXs) constitute a family of Ca2+-dependent membrane-binding proteins; at least 20 of them have been described to date. Among these, Annexin A2 (ANXA2) has been revealed as a multi-functional protein in vitro. Its actual role in vivo, however, requires further investigation. We already reported that ANX-I (ANXA1) was up-regulated in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The role of ANXA2 in various ... Read more

Role of Serum Matrix Metalloproteinase-1 and Tumor Necrosis Factor- α in Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease characterized by joint inflammation and destruction resulting in degradation of extracellular cartilage matrix. Osteoarthritis (OA) is also associated with degradation of molecular components of cartilage matrix with eventual loss of joint cartilage function. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of proteinases modulated enzymes that play an important role in the pathogenesis ... Read more

Pattern of Immune Liver Diseases in Upper Egypt
Autoimmune liver diseases (AILD) include a group of rare disorders. This study is designed to determine their frequency and characteristics in a hepatology clinic in Upper Egypt. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study involved three groups; the first included 12 cases suspected to have AILD based on a scoring system of clinical, biochemical and immunological findings. The second group (n = ... Read more

Diagnostic Accuracy of Helicobacter pylori Stool Antigen Test (HpSA) and Gastric Expression of MUC5AC& MUC2 in Patients with Dyspepsia
_Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori)_infection is one of the most common causes of gastritis and peptic ulcer diseases. Selection of a reliable method for accurate detection of _H. pylori _infection in dyspeptic patients is of major importance. _H. pylori _reside the gastric mucous layer of the superficial epithelium, attaches to gastric epithelial cells; mucins are the most important structural component of ...

Visualizing the gastric wall with a 30-MHz ultrasonic miniprobe: ex vivo imaging of normal gastric sites and sites of early gastric cancer
This study was performed to determine the echo layer structures of the normal gastric wall and early gastric cancer when visualized with a 30-MHZ ultrasonic miniprobe Read more

Three‐dimensional endoscopic ultrasonography for the assessment of early gastric carcinoma invasion: could it provide diagnostic innovations?
BACKGROUND: This study aimed to evaluate a three‐dimensional endoscopic ultrasonographic (3‐D EUS) system in the assessment of the tumor invasion depth of early gastric carcinoma. METHODS: Sixty‐nine macroscopically early cancer lesions in 67 patients were recruited in an _in vivo_ study. The surgically resected gastric specimens of 30 of them were re‐examined in an _ex vivo_ study. An Olympus 3‐D ... Read more

Endosonographic Features of Advanced Gastric Carcinoma Invading the Colon: Is it Easy to Differentiate from Pancreatic Invasion?
Endoscopic ultrasonographic (EUS) image of a T4 gastric carcinoma on the posterior wall of the angulus taken using a GF-UM200 (7.5 MHz) echoendoscope (Olympus, Tokyo, Japan). The linear hypoechoic area along the out- er tumor margin (arrow) was first interpreted as the main pancreatic duct of an invaded pancreatic body, but surprisingly, the actual pancreas was demonstrated soon afterwards in ...
