  • Clinical
  • Disease can be reversed in many patients, and thus clinical management focuses upon the identification and treatment of the precipitant while providing multiorgan-supportive care that addresses the complex pattern of physiological disturbance in critically ill patients with liver disease. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • 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.

  • metabolic
  • Necrosis is typically the consequence of acute metabolic perturbation with ATP depletion, whereas apoptosis represents an ATP-dependent cell death program. (frontiersin.org)
  • 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)
  • Therefore, the efficacy of corticosteroid in managing acute exacerbation of CHB is unclear. (e-cmh.org)
  • medications
  • A proper long-term care with medications and regular follow-up for liver functioning is suggested. (selfgrowth.com)

  • Apparently, a Food and Drug Administration warning four months ago was missed by many physicians, pharmacists and patients, so the agency, in an unusual move, saw fit Monday to remind us: Stop writing prescriptions for, stop dispensing prescriptions for, and stop taking prescription medications containing more than 325 milligrams of acetaminophen. (baltimoresun.com)
  • And many surgeons and dentists continue to recommend these medications to patients. (baltimoresun.com)
  • Because of the high cost of hepatitis B medications, herbs-also called 'complementary and alternative therapies' in modern Western science-are widely used for treatment of chronic hepatitis B in developing countries. (hepatitisbannual.org)
  • biliary
  • About 50% of the pediatric patient who needs a transplant have Biliary Atresia (Atresia is a condition where an orifice or passage in the body is closed or absent). (selfgrowth.com)
  • Gastroenterology
  • [ 2 ] The American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) and the British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) recommend combination therapy, using the corticosteroid prednisone with azathioprine. (medscape.com)
  • The Department offers fellows vast clinical and endoscopic experience during our three-year fellowship program in gastroenterology and liver diseases. (montefiore.org)
  • Complication
  • 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)
  • bilirubin
  • A complete liver panel should include the aminotransferases (AST, ALT), Alkaline Phosphatase, Total bilirubin as well as tests of liver function: Albumin, Prothrombin time (PT) and international normalized ratio (INR). (clinicalpainadvisor.com)
  • aplastic
  • Joshi, Kusum 2014-09-01 00:00:00 Human parvovirus B19 (PVB19) is linked to variety of diseases, including erythema infectiosum, transient aplastic crisis, fetal hydrops, cardiomyopathy and, recently, hepatitis and arthritis. (deepdyve.com)
  • Human infection with parvovirus B19 may lead to a diverse spectrum of clinical manifestations, including benign erythema infectiosum in children, transient aplastic crisis in patients with haemolytic anaemia, and congenital hydrops foetalis. (biomedcentral.com)
  • lamivudine
  • One hundred and thirty patients receiving lamivudine were selected into the lamivudine treatment group with another 130 without lamivudine treatment studied as control. (wiley.com)
  • The cumulative survival rates of patients in the lamivudine group were higher than those of the control group (χ 2 = 9.50, P = 0.0021). (wiley.com)
  • Lamivudine can significantly decrease the 3-month mortality of patients with a MELD score of 20-30, and a low pretreatment viral load and rapid decline of HBV DNA load are good predictors for the outcome of the treatment. (wiley.com)
  • therapies
  • Therefore, new technologies are in constant development, including blood purification therapies as plasmapheresis, hemodiafiltration, and bioartificial liver support. (cognizantcommunication.com)
