When GI practitioners address physiology issues related to acid secretion, they must assess whether patients are suffering from common indigestion or more serious ulcer-related concerns. In the Digestive Diseases Self-Education Program’s® (DDSEP) chapter on acid diseases of the stomach, Steven F. Moss, MD, AGAF, helps learners understand the causes of acid hypersecretion, recognize differences between ulcers and dyspepsia, ascertain effective treatments for H. pylori infections, and identify approaches to prevention.
Dr. Moss is a UK-trained physician-scientist whose research focuses on the role of H. pylori infection in gastric cancer. He is a clinical gastroenterologist at Rhode Island Hospital and Providence VA Medical Center and is Director of the Brown Gastroenterology Fellowship Training Program.
