Etiopathogenic hypothesis on carcinoma of the gallbladder: our study Abstract The authors are interested in determining causes of gallbladder cancer (GBC). By this intention, they theorize a correlation between genetic modifications (which are responsible of malignant transformation of biliary epithelium) and some intestinal infections. From 1999 to 2004 they observed 15 GBC and all 15 gallbladder have been analyzed histologically and from microbiological aspect; by these means from 1999 till 2004 they have studied also 30 persons with colelithiasis. The authors noticed that bile of both groups contained, in three cases in the first and in 8 cases in the second, a germ named Escherichia Coli which normally lives in intestine, while in 10 operated gallbladders of the first group and 12 of the second there was a positive for k-ras. They are studying to confirm their theories. PMID: 16437900 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE] PROF. ANTONIO GIACOMO RIZZO UNIVERSITA’ DI MESSINA- SICILY
