Infrared Fluorescence-Based Cancer Screening Capsule for the Small Intestine.

Infrared fluorescence endoscopy (IRFE), in conjunction with an infrared fluorescent-labelling contrast agent, is a well known technique used for efficient early-stage cancer detection. In this paper w...

Design and Preliminary Experimental Investigation of a Capsule for Measuring Small Intestine Contraction Pressure.

A tethered pressure measurement capsule was developed for measuring small intestine contraction pressure to assist in locating capsules within the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and quantifying the conta...

Shape memory alloy-based biopsy device for active locomotive intestinal capsule endoscope.

Recently, capsule endoscopes have been used for diagnosis in digestive organs. However, because a capsule endoscope does not have a locomotive function, its use has been limited to small tubular diges...

Enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma: involvement of the gastrointestinal tract from the duodenum to the rectum.

Diet and specific microbial exposure trigger features of environmental enteropathy in a novel murine model.

Environmental enteropathy (EE) is a subclinical chronic inflammatory disease of the small intestine and has a profound impact on the persistence of childhood malnutrition worldwide. However, the aetio...

Clinical Trials [6559 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Plasma Citrulline Concentration in Tropical Enteropathy

Citrulline is an amino acid produced in the intestine and in the liver, but the liver does not contribute significantly to circulating citrulline concentrations. The intestine is thus the ...

Trial of Wireless Capsule Endoscopy in the Evaluation of Obscure Gastrointestinal Bleeding

This study compares wireless capsule endoscopy (patients swallow a pill-size camera that sends pictures of the intestine to a recorder worn on their belt) to an x-ray study (called dedicat...

Performance Evaluation of Capsule Endoscopy in the Diagnosis of Gluten Sensitive Enteropathy (MA-23)

The purpose of this study is to determine how well capsule endoscopy identifies changes in the small bowel mucosa of celiac disease patients.

A Study for Patients With Non-Hodgkin's Lymphomas

In this study, all patients will get investigational drug. There will be no comparator drug. This study will evaluate three tumor types: T-cell lymphoma, Indolent B-cell lymphoma, and A...

Safety and Efficacy of ODSH in Protein Losing Enteropathy Secondary to Single Ventricle Palliative Surgery

Protein Losing Enteropathy (PLE) is a serious and sometimes fatal medical condition that may develop in subjects with congenital cardiac disease for which a palliative procedure known as t...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A primary peripheral T-cell lymphoma in the gastrointestinal tract, most often in the jejunum, associated with a history of CELIAC DISEASE or other gastrointestinal diseases.

A condition that is caused by HYPERPLASIA of LYMPHOCYTES in the small intestine (INTESTINE, SMALL) and the mesenteric LYMPH NODES. These lymphocytes produce an anomalous alpha heavy chain protein. Generally, these IPSID patients have either concurrent LYMPHOMA or develop lymphoma within a few years. The disease was first described in the Mediterranean region and is characterized by malabsorption; WEIGHT LOSS; DIARRHEA; and STEATORRHEA.

A form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma having a usually diffuse pattern with both small and medium lymphocytes and small cleaved cells. It accounts for about 5% of adult non-Hodgkin lymphomas in the United States and Europe. The majority of mantle-cell lymphomas are associated with a t(11;14) translocation resulting in overexpression of the CYCLIN D1 gene (GENES, BCL-1).

B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.

Malignant lymphoma characterized by the presence of immunoblasts with uniformly round-to-oval nuclei, one or more prominent nucleoli, and abundant cytoplasm. This class may be subdivided into plasmacytoid and clear-cell types based on cytoplasmic characteristics. A third category, pleomorphous, may be analogous to some of the peripheral T-cell lymphomas (LYMPHOMA, T-CELL, PERIPHERAL) recorded in both the United States and Japan.
