  • Smog Linked to Peptic Ulcer Bleeding in Elderly Older adults may be more likely to have peptic ulcer bleeding on days when the air has higher levels of nitrogen dioxide, a pollutant produced by car exhaust and power plants, a recent study in Hong Kong suggests.
  • Celecoxib vs Naproxen for Reducing Risk of Recurrent GI Bleeding For patients with a history of upper GI bleeding while taking a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and aspirin who need to continue both drugs, celecoxib with a proton-pump inhibitor (PPI) is “the preferred treatment” to reduce the risk of recurrent GI bleeding, researchers advise based on results of the CONCERN study.
