The development of SUTENT(R) revolutionized the care of metastatic renal carcinoma and of non-operable GIST. The tolerance is quite good with mostly mild side effects grade 1 or 2.
We report the case of three severe esophagitis stage 4 responsible for digestive bleeding. Two patients were taking anti-coagulant that could worsen the bleeding, but none were taking either antiplatelet or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory or corticosteroid that could favour erosion or ulceration of the digestive mucosa. It seems that SUTENT(R) is responsible for the digestive bleeding.
Cases of esophagitis induced by SUTENT(R) have already been reported but are rare and of mild severity. Our three cases of esophagitis are severe with SUTENT(R) treatment as only risk factor and worsened by anti-coagulant treatment for two patients. It might be of interest preventively to treat these patients with inhibitors of proton pump.

The aim of this study was to investigate histomorphological and immunophenotypic features in pill-induced esophagitis. We comparatively evaluated the histomorphological, immunophenotypic features of p...
We report three cases of drug-induced pneumonia caused by mesalazine. They were all diagnosed as ulcerative colitis and treated with mesalazine orally. Our three cases and literature review revealed t...
Lung cancer patients receiving radiotherapy present with acute esophagitis and chronic fibrosis, as a result of radiation injury to esophageal tissues. We have shown that soy isoflavones alleviate pne...
Proton pump inhibitors are the first-line treatment for reflux esophagitis. Because severe reflux esophagitis has very low prevalence in Japan, little is known about the effectiveness of proton pump i...
Acute severe ulcerative colitis is a potentially life-threatening condition that requires a pro-active approach with either effective medical treatment or timely colectomy. The possibility of free per...
STU-Na belongs to the proton pump inhibitors (PPI), a group of drugs that reduce gastric acidity. PPI are used to treat acid related diseases like erosive or ulcerative esophagitis. This t...
Study Hypothesis: Patients with local renal cell carcinoma who are treated neoadjuvantly with Sutent may show a radiologic response to the study drug (Sutent). The study is looking at th...
Compare the percent of subjects with moderate/severe esophagitis who achieve complete endoscopic resolution after 8 weeks of treatment morning vs. bedtime.
The primary objective of this study is to assess the activity of subcutaneous (SC) amifostine on the incidence and severity of acute radiochemotherapy-induced esophagitis in patients with ...
A Multicenter, Randomized, Double Blind, Double Dummy, Parallel-Group Efficacy Study Comparing 8 Weeks of Treatment With Esomeprazole Magnesium (40mg qd) to Lansoprazole (30mg qd) for the Healing of Erosive Esophagitis in Patients With Moderate or Severe
This study looks at the healing rates in patients with Erosive Esophagitis (EE) when treated with either esomeprazole or lansoprazole
Chronic ESOPHAGITIS characterized by esophageal mucosal EOSINOPHILIA. It is diagnosed when an increase in EOSINOPHILS are present over the entire esophagus. The reflux symptoms fail to respond to PROTON PUMP INHIBITORS treatment, unlike in GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE. The symptoms are associated with IgE-mediated hypersensitivity to food or inhalant allergens.
An idiopathic, rapidly evolving, and severely debilitating disease occurring most commonly in association with chronic ulcerative colitis. It is characterized by the presence of boggy, purplish ulcers with undermined borders, appearing mostly on the legs. The majority of cases are in people between 40 and 60 years old. Its etiology is unknown.
An acute form of MEGACOLON, severe pathological dilatation of the COLON. It is associated with clinical conditions such as ULCERATIVE COLITIS; CROHN DISEASE; AMEBIC DYSENTERY; or CLOSTRIDIUM ENTEROCOLITIS.
A severe condition resulting from bacteria invading healthy muscle from adjacent traumatized muscle or soft tissue. The infection originates in a wound contaminated with bacteria of the genus CLOSTRIDIUM. C. perfringens accounts for the majority of cases (over eighty percent), while C. noyvi, C. septicum, and C. histolyticum cause most of the other cases.
Generalized or localized diffuse fibrous overgrowth of the gingival tissue, usually transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait, but some cases are idiopathic and others produced by drugs. The enlarged gingiva is pink, firm, and has a leather-like consistency with a minutely pebbled surface and in severe cases the teeth are almost completely covered and the enlargement projects into the oral vestibule.
