The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) RSS feed -- Search Results in Gastroenterology. NEJM ( is a weekly general medical journal that publishes new medical research findings, review articles, and editorial opinion on a wide variety of topics of importance to biomedical science and clinical practice.

Pediatric Intestinal Failure
31/12/69 - Once a condition that was almost always fatal, pediatric intestinal failure is now considered a complex but survivable syndrome that afflicts tens of thousands of children. Deaths due to dehydration and malnutrition, which claimed more than half of infants with the short-bowel syndrome, were…

Inflammatory Bowel Disease and the NLRP3 Inflammasome
31/12/69 - The majority of the immune cells in the body are located in the intestine, where they are spatially separated from more than 10 trillion microorganisms by a layer of mucus and a layer of epithelial cells. Deterioration of this physical barrier ? the result of invading pathogens or an unrestrained…

Case 24-2017: An 8-Month-Old Girl with Fever and an Abdominal Mass
31/12/69 - Presentation of Case. Dr. Rajitha Venkatesh (Pediatrics): An 8-month-old girl was admitted to this hospital because of fever and an abdominal mass. The patient had been in her usual good health until approximately 6 days before admission, when she passed a large stool surrounded by clotted blood.…

NAD Deficiency, Congenital Malformations, and Niacin Supplementation
31/12/69 - Major congenital malformations occur in at least 2% of human births. There are relatively few identified causes. The origins of most malformations have been difficult to determine and probably involve genetic and environmental factors or gene?environment interaction. Although malformations…

Metabolism and Congenital Malformations ? NAD?s Effects on Development
31/12/69 - We have long known that metabolism must be tightly controlled to support the needs of individual cells and tissues. Nutrient oxidation is necessary for the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which supports energetically unfavorable processes in cells, and for the metabolic conversion of…

Case 23-2017: A 9-Day-Old Girl with Vomiting, Acidosis, and Azotemia
31/12/69 - Presentation of Case. Dr. Katherine L. Tuttle (Pediatrics): A 9-day-old girl was admitted to this hospital because of nonbilious vomiting, acidosis, and azotemia. The patient had been born at another hospital by induced vaginal delivery after 41 weeks 3 days of gestation. The pregnancy had been…

Association of Changes in Diet Quality with Total and Cause-Specific Mortality
31/12/69 - Some epidemiologic studies of nutrition focus on dietary patterns rather than single nutrients or foods to evaluate the association between diet and health outcomes. Accumulated evidence supports an association between healthy dietary patterns and a decreased risk of death. Results from recent…

CD55 Deficiency, Early-Onset Protein-Losing Enteropathy, and Thrombosis
31/12/69 - Genetic inquiry has contributed to our understanding of gastrointestinal diseases, associating at least 64 genes with early-onset or very-early-onset inflammatory bowel disease. Deleterious gene variants affect the intestinal epithelial barrier, phagocytosis processes, immune regulation, and…
