  • clinically
  • Recognition of acute-on-chronic liver failure as a clinically and pathophysiologically distinct syndrome with defined diagnostic and prognostic criteria will help to encourage the development of new management pathways and interventions to address the unacceptably high mortality.

  • Exacerbation
  • The patient showed rapid decompensation due to CHB exacerbation. (e-cmh.org)
  • The main pathogenesis of CHB exacerbation is considered to be liver injury through the induction of cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-mediated cytolytic pathways in hepatitis B virus (HBV)-infected hepatocytes [ 4 ]. (e-cmh.org)

(prweb.com)
  • According to the agency, at least 56 cases of severe liver injury, liver failure and acute non-viral hepatitis have been associated with use of the product. (prweb.com)
  • Severe liver damage involves oxidative stress and depletion of ATP resulting in necrosis. (frontiersin.org)
  • Recent data suggest that necrosis resulting from severe liver damage is associated with poor outcome of ALF patients. (frontiersin.org)
  • exposure
  • Symptoms usually appear from 40 days to 6 months after exposure to the hepatitis B virus (HBV). (britannica.com)
  • Although the probability that any given individual user of an NSAID will suffer a serious gastrointestinal complication is fairly low, widespread patient exposure can translate into a major national health burden. (biomedcentral.com)
