Special Issue, Call for Submissions

Healthcare disparities in gastroenterology and hepatology

We are pleased to announce a special issue of Gastroenterology Research to be published in April 2022 focusing on "Healthcare disparities in gastroenterology and hepatology". Disparities in healthcare access and healthcare outcomes are pervasive and predominantly affect underserved and vulnerable populations. Highlighting research to better identify and understand the factors contributing to healthcare disparities is of paramount importance to help guide future interventions to mitigate these healthcare disparities. We invite your submissions focused on all aspects of healthcare disparities in gastroenterology and hepatology.

Submission deadline: Feb 28, 2022
Publication: April 2022
Editor-in-Chief: Robert Wong, MD


Highlights

  • Corticosteroid and Biologic Use Not Associated With Adverse Outcomes for Inflammatory Bowel Disease Patients Hospitalized With COVID-19

    To date, studies investigating the inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patient experience with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) have consistently reported that the observed rate of COVID-19 within this population is similar to the general population.

  • Cross-Sectional Study of Swallowing Phases in Cases of Megaesophagus Caused by Chagas Disease

    Chagas disease, caused by the flagellate protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi, is an infectious cause of secondary achalasia and megaesophagus. Moreover, the oral and pharyngeal phases of swallowing may also be affected, which may contribute to dysphagia and increase the possibility of airway aspiration during and/or after swallowing.

  • Usefulness of the Eosinophilic Esophagitis Histologic Scoring System in Distinguishing Active Eosinophilic Esophagitis From Remission and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

    Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is defined as esophageal dysfunction in the presence of > 15 intraepithelial eosinophils per high-power field (eos/hpf) in either the mid or distal esophagus. The current focus of EoE pathologic evaluation is the peak eosinophil count (PEC), although histologic features other than eosinophilic inflammation are also commonly observed.

  • Is the Use of Proton Pump Inhibitors a Predisposing Factor for Pyogenic Liver Abscesses?

    Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) increase gastric pH by reducing acid production. The resulting alkaline milieu in the stomach increases the risk of bacterial translocation. This study aimed to investigate if there is a correlation between PPI use and developing pyogenic liver abscesses.

  • Clostridium difficile Infection Hospitalizations in the United States: Insights From the 2017 National Inpatient Sample

    There is a paucity of contemporary national estimates for Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) hospitalizations by age group, sex, and region in the US population. Also, there is lack of contemporary national statistics on CDI hospitalizations with comorbidities.

A Unique Coexistence of Rectal Adenocarcinoma and Gastric Antral Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor: A Case Report and Minireview
Several studies have reported the coexistence of gastric gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) with many primary carcinomas such as gastric and renal cell carcinomas. However, to date reports about the coexistence of gastric GISTs and colorectal adenocarcinoma are limited. Herein we report a unique case of gastric GIST coexisting synchronously with rectal adenocarcinoma in a 36-year-old male patient who presented with weight loss, vomiting, and bleeding per rectum.
