Frequency of atypical symptoms in patients suffering from gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is not well known, and the optimal management of such symptoms has not been well established. Our aims were to set up an observatory of these atypical symptoms of GORD in Belgium and to study the efficacy of one month treatment with esomeprazole 40 mg. Patients and methods : Gastroenterologists; participating in this observational survey were asked to register every new outpatient with symptoms of GORD during a period of 20 consecutive working days. All patients who reported predominant presence of atypical manifestations of GORD were documented and characterized more in detail. In patients with dominant chest pain or ENT symptoms, a treatment with esomeprazole 40 mg daily during 4 weeks was proposed. Results : 90 gastroenterologists included 2864 patients consulting for symptoms suggestive of GORD, including 776 (27.1%) with dominant atypical symptoms. Endoscopy (performed in 2800 patients) showed significantly less oesophagitis in atypical than in typical GORD patients (68% vs. 81.1%; P < 0.0001). Management of atypical GORD patients appeared to be very heterogeneous. Overall 516/776 patients were included in the open phase of treatment with esomeprazole 40 mg, but data for analysis are only available in 228 patients. After one month, symptoms had disappeared in 57.1% and significantly improved in 26.6%. Conclusion : Atypical GORD represents a large number of consultations in gastroenterology in Belgium. It is associated with less endoscopic lesions than typical GORD. Its management is heterogeneous reflecting the lack of guidelines on this topic. Response rate after esomeprazole 40 mg for one month in this open uncontrolled trial was high. This result warrants confirmation in a placebo-controlled trial. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Polymorphonuclear neutrophils have been implicated in the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis. A substantial body of evidence has emerged to implicate the role of specific leucocyte derived enzyme myeloperoxidase in atherogenesis, since its initiation through progression until destabilization. The aim of the study was to determine the presence of polymorphonuclear neutrophils activation after coronary stenting, to compare this activation between stable and unstable setting and to evaluate the kinetic relation of this activation with inflammatory response following atherosclerotic plaque rupture. METHODS: Myeloperoxidase, lactoferrin, elastase, C-reactive protein and cytokine plasma levels were assessed in 15 patients undergoing direct coronary stenting for unstable angina (Group A) and compared to 11 patients undergoing this procedure for stable angina (Group B). Serial sampling starting before arteriography and continued for 24 h was carried out in all patients. RESULTS: A significant elevation in myeloperoxidase and lactoferrin levels was observed after stenting in both group A (p<0.0001) and group B (p<0.0001), but was higher in group A. Interleukin-8, interleukin-12 and interleukin-6 levels increased temporarily after stenting in the 2 groups. Baseline values of C-reactive protein were similar in the 2 groups and a progressive increase was observed after the intervention. CONCLUSIONS: Direct coronary artery stenting is associated with an early polymorphonuclear neutrophils activation followed by release of inflammatory cytokines (interleukin-6, interleukin-8, interleukin-12) and C-reactive protein elevation in both stable and unstable patients. We conclude that stenting by itself is associated with myeloperoxidase liberation with a significantly enhanced response in unstable patients. [less ▲]

The size of a lymphocyte population is primarily determined by a dynamic equilibrium between cell proliferation and death. Hence, lymphocyte recirculation between the peripheral blood and lymphoid tissues is a key determinant in the maintenance of cell homeostasis. Insights into these mechanisms can be gathered from large-animal models, where lymphatic cannulation from individual lymph nodes is possible. In this study, we assessed in vivo lymphocyte trafficking in bovine leukemia virus (BLV)-infected sheep. With a carboxyfluorescein diacetate succinimidyl ester labeling technique, we demonstrate that the dynamics of lymphocyte recirculation is unaltered but that accelerated proliferation in the lymphoid tissues is compensated for by increased death in the peripheral blood cell population. Lymphocyte homeostasis is thus maintained by biphasic kinetics in two distinct tissues, emphasizing a very dynamic process during BLV infection. [less ▲]
