The modified Lanza scale (Lanza FL, 1984) has been widely utilized to grade the degree of gastritis and duodenitis. However, the inter-rater or intra-rater reproducibility of this scale has never been validated. As a quality improvement program, it is important to study the reproducibility of the scale between different operators and the operators himself.
Method: During upper endoscopic examinations, one investigator performed the procedure and the second investigator look at the endoscopic image. The degree of gastritis and duodenitis is graded. The results of the grading are blinded to the other investigator.
The endoscopic video is stored for reassessment to determine the intra-rater reliability. The patient identifier is stored in serial number. The investigator will not retrieve the report of the first assessment during the second assessment.

The purpose of this study is to determine whether treatment with esomeprazole alone is able to heal patients with lymphocytic gastritis
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the Chinese prescription Weiqi decoction on Chronic Atrophic Gastritis.
Although all PPIs are effective, there are some differences in their clinical performance, particularly in terms of the degree and speed of gastric acid suppression. Few data are also avai...
Atrophic gastritis with hypochlorhydric milieu is a risk factor for gastric cancer. Microbes colonizing the acid-free stomach oxidize ethanol into acetaldehyde, a group 1 carcinogen. The a...
Endoscopy is a tool that has greatly influenced gastroenterological diagnosis. However, conventional endoscopy is limited to detecting lesions on the basis of gross morphological changes a...
Prevalence of chronic gastritis has markedly declined in developed populations during the past decades. However, chronic gastritis is still one of the most common serious pandemic infections with such...
To present results of the Kyoto Global Consensus Meeting, which was convened to develop global consensus on (1) classification of chronic gastritis and duodenitis, (2) clinical distinction of dyspepsi...
Gastric cancer develops due to atrophic gastritis induced by Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection. Serum levels of pepsinogen (PG) are known to be excellent markers for evaluating the degree of a...
Intestinal‑type gastric adenocarcinomas are preceded by precancerous lesions, which begin with chronic atrophic gastritis. Over the last few years, multiple serological screening techniques have bee...
Intractable bleeding caused by radiation-induced gastritis is rare. We describe a 69-year-old man with intractable hemorrhagic gastritis induced by postoperative radiotherapy for the treatment of esop...
GASTRITIS with atrophy of the GASTRIC MUCOSA, the GASTRIC PARIETAL CELLS, and the mucosal glands leading to ACHLORHYDRIA. Atrophic gastritis usually progresses from chronic gastritis.
GASTRITIS with HYPERTROPHY of the GASTRIC MUCOSA. It is characterized by giant gastric folds, diminished acid secretion, excessive MUCUS secretion, and HYPOPROTEINEMIA. Symptoms include VOMITING; DIARRHEA; and WEIGHT LOSS.
Inflammation of the GASTRIC MUCOSA, a lesion observed in a number of unrelated disorders.
A vitamin found in green vegetables. It is used in the treatment of peptic ulcers, colitis, and gastritis and has an effect on secretory, acid-forming, and enzymatic functions of the intestinal tract.
A species of HELICOBACTER that colonizes in the STOMACH of laboratory MICE; CATS; and DOGS. It is associated with lymphoid follicular hyperplasia and mild GASTRITIS in CATS.
