Keywords Aging gastric mucosa; Injury; Phosphatase and tensin homologue deleted on chromosome ten-PTEN; Survivin; Apoptosis; Hypoxia
Core Tip This review focuses on aging gastric mucosa and its increased susceptibility to injury. The following events occur in aging gastric mucosa: reduced mucosal blood flow and hypoxia, upregulates PTEN that activates pro-apoptotic caspases and reduces anti-apoptosis protein, survivin. The imbalance between pro- and anti-apoptosis mediators results in increased apoptosis and increased susceptibility to injury. Aging gastropathy is an important and clinically relevant issue because of: (1) an aging world population; (2) older patients have much greater risk of gastroduodenal ulcers and gastrointestinal complications (e.g., non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs-induced gastric injury) than younger patients; and (3) increased injury of aging gastric mucosa can be reversed pharmacologically.
