Recent changes in the incidence of duodenal and gastric ulcer

, : Recent changes in the incidence of duodenal and gastric ulcer. American Journal of Epidemiology 111(6): 713-720

The incidence of duodenal and gastric ulcer was examined in a Health Maintenance Organization with over 200,000 members. Hospitalization data were available from 1966 through 1975, and outpatient data from 1967 through 1973. Outpatient episodes of duodenal ulcer declined from 21.0 +/- 3.6 episodes per 1000 male person years (PY) in 1967 to 6.6 +/- 1.5 per 1000 male PY in 1973, and from 9.4 +/- 2.4 episodes per 1000 female PY in 1967 to 4.1 +/- 0.8 per 1000 female PY in 1973. Similar declines were observed in the hospitalization data. There were slight declines in gastric ulcer rates, but these were not significant except for a decrease in male gastric ulcer hospitalizations. The decrease in duodenal ulcer incidence has no readily apparent explanation.

We report here the isolation of 44 genes that are upregulated after serum starvation and/or contact inhibition. These genes have been termed TIGA, after Transcript Induced by Growth Arrest. We found that there are two kinds of G0 phases caused by...

Realistic recognition of information dissemination as a blood brother of experimentation in the research and development household is urged.
