[Peculiarities of occupational esophagogastroduodenal pathology in personnel serving at CW disposal and storage facilities].

[Article in Russian]


In a process of medical care and supervision on staff and military personnel, eliminating the chemical weapons, it was revealed that they are more susceptible to esophagogastroduodenal pathology in comparison with the control group. Moreover, the given pathology has an asymptomatic disease course but associated with high contamination of Helicobacter pylori. Marked inflammation changes, atrophic and fibrosis manifestation and microcirculation dysfunction have been confirmed by histological analysis of gastric mucosa. We supposed that the complex of occupational health risk factors, including possible subliminal toxic influence of eliminated CW components determines this pathological dysfunction. Negative influence of shift work and irregular nutrition rhythm are not excluded. The findings of this research are dictating the necessary of revision of military medical expertise principles and the development of the more effective treatment and prophylactic methods.
