Quotes

"The compounds and compositions provided by this invention are also useful for the study of JAK kinases in biological and pathological phenomena; the study of intracellular signal transduction pathways mediated by such kinases; and the comparative evaluation of new kinase inhibitors."
...The most common adverse event was esophageal stricture (11.8%), which all resolved with a median of one endoscopic dilation. "Ablation therapy is safe and is performed as an outpatient procedure" Dr. Bergman noted
...that it shows that Stretta meets the need for long-term and safe control of the underlying cause of reflux – without surgery," observed Dr. Noar. "Looking at this data in the context of other GERD treatments, patient satisfaction with Stretta is higher than with either long-term PPI use or anti-reflux surgery. Given concerns about long-term PPI use, the long-term durability of Stretta as seen in this study suggests this therapy as a way to correct reflux, reduce medication, and improve quality of life for these patients."
...According to news reporting from Xi'an, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Caudal-related homeobox 1 (CDX1), an intestinal-specific transcription factor, has been reported to have vital roles in gastric intestinal metaplasia (IM). Although IM is a high-risk factor for gastric cancer (GC), the specific role of CDX1 in GC is largely unknown."
