New perspectives on biliary atresia. (1/473)

An investigation into the aetiology, diagnosis, and treatment of biliary atresia was carried out because the prognosis remains so poor.In an electron microscopical study no viral particles or viral inclusion bodies were seen, nor were any specific ultrastructural features observed. An animal experiment suggested that obstruction within the biliary tract of newborn rabbits could be produced by maternal intravenous injection of the bile acid lithocholic acid.A simple and atraumatic method of diagnosis was developed using(99) (m)Tc-labelled compounds which are excreted into bile. Two compounds, (99m)Tc-pyridoxylidene glutamate ((99m)Tc-PG) and (99m)Tc-dihydrothioctic acid ((99m)Tc-DHT) were first assessed in normal piglets and piglets with complete biliary obstruction. Intestinal imaging correlated with biliary tract patency, and the same correlation was found in jaundiced human adults, in whom the (99m)Tc-PG scan correctly determined biliary patency in 21 out of 24 cases. The (99m)Tc-PG scan compared well with liver biopsy and (131)I-Rose Bengal in the diagnosis of 11 infants with prolonged jaundice.A model of extrahepatic biliary atresia was developed in the newborn piglet so that different methods of bile drainage could be assessed. Priorities in biliary atresia lie in a better understanding of the aetiology and early diagnosis rather than in devising new bile drainage procedures.  (+info)

Casts of hepatic blood vessels: a comparison of the microcirculation of the penguin, Pygoscelis adeliae, with some common laboratory animals. (2/473)

Latex casts of the hepatic blood vessels of the penguin, Pygoscelis adeliae, and of some common laboratory animals were compared. There was general similarity between the different species, but the portal venous and hepatic arterial systems of the penguin were simpler than those of other species. Measurements were made of the volume and length of portal veins and it appears that the portal venous system is capable of being a more efficient blood reservoir in the penguin than in other species studied. The peribiliary plexus was especially well formed in the penguin and was drained by long veins which usually joined portal venous branches. Some of the long veins drained directly into the hepatic venous tree: these translobular veins were more prominent than in mammals. Anastomoses between hepatic artery and portal vein were not present in penguins, and the supply to the sinusoids appeared to be separate. The morphology of small hepatic veins of all the species appeared to be similar.  (+info)

Metabolism and disposition of 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1- butanone (NNK) in rhesus monkeys. (3/473)

Metabolism and disposition of the tobacco-specific N-nitrosamine, 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK), a potent rodent lung carcinogen, were studied in rhesus monkeys. In three males receiving a single i.v. dose of [5-3H]NNK (0.72 mCi; 4.6-9.8 microg/kg), urine was collected for 10 days. Within the first 24 h, 86.0 +/- 0.7% of the dose was excreted. NNK-derived radioactivity was still detectable in urine 10 days after dosing (total excretion, 92.7 +/- 0.7%). Decay of urinary radioactivity was biexponential with half-lives of 1.7 and 42 h. Metabolite patterns in urine from the first 6 h closely resembled those reported previously for patas monkeys; end products of metabolic NNK activation represented more than 50% of total radioactivity. At later time points, the pattern shifted in favor of NNK detoxification products (60-70% of total radioactivity in urine), mainly 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanol (NNAL) and its O-glucuronide conjugates. One female rhesus monkey received a single i.v. dose of [5-3H]NNK (1.72 mCi; 28.4 microg/kg) under isoflurane anesthesia; biliary excretion over 6 h (0.6% of the dose) was 10 times less than predicted by our previously reported rat model. No preferential excretion of NNAL glucuronide was observed in monkey bile. Collectively, these results suggest that the rhesus monkey could be a useful model for NNK metabolism and disposition in humans.  (+info)

Review article: antibiotic prophylaxis for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). (4/473)

This review examines the evidence for antibiotic prophylaxis in endoscopic retrograde cholangiopan-creatography (ERCP), and provides detailed advice about suitable antibiotic regimens in appropriate high-risk patients. Ascending cholangitis and infective endocarditis are potential complications of endoscopic ERCP. The pathophysiology of these two complications is quite separate and different sub-groups of patients require prophylaxis with appropriate antibiotic regimens. Ascending cholangitis results from bacterial infection of an obstructed biliary system, usually from enteric Gram-negative microorganisms, resulting in bacteraemia. There is incomplete drainage of the biliary system after ERCP in up to 10% of patients who require stenting. Antibiotics started in these patients will probably reduce the frequency of cholangitis by 80%. If antibiotics are restricted to this group, approximately 90% of all patients having an ERCP will avoid antibiotics, but 80% of cholangitic episodes will be prevented. Infective endocarditis may result from the bacteraemia caused at the time of the ERCP in patients with an abnormal heart valve. Antibiotic prophylaxis, in particular covering alpha-haemolytic streptococci, should be started before the procedure in this defined high-risk group.  (+info)

Enterogastric reflux mimicking gallbladder disease: detection, quantitation and potential significance. (5/473)

OBJECTIVE: Visualization of enterogastric reflux (EGR) may be present during hepatobiliary imaging. Reflux of bile may damage the gastric mucosa, altering its function, and cause such symptoms as epigastric pain, heartburn, nausea, intermittent vomiting and abdominal fullness. These symptoms also are associated with gallbladder disease. The aim of this study was to quantitate the EGR index (EGRI) and to determine if a difference exists in normal and abnormal responses using standard cholecystokinin (CCK)-augmented hepatobiliary imaging. METHODS: This study used 129 patients. LAO dynamic data on a 128 x 128 matrix at a rate of 1 frame/min were obtained. After the gallbladder ejection fraction (GBEF) was determined, the EGRI (%) was calculated by relating the counts in the gastric ROI to the counts in the hepatobiliary ROI at a specified time. The results were compared with the patient's final clinical diagnosis. RESULTS: Normal responders (GBEF > or = 35%) had a higher EGRI than abnormal responders with a P = 0.001 EGR observed in 75 patients (58.1%). Significant reflux (EGRI > or = 14.2% at 15 min) was observed in 29 additional patients (22.5%). Patients with EGRI > or = 24.5% showed a strong association with the pathophysiologic syndrome of gastritis, alkaline reflux, gastric ulcer and gastro esophageal reflux disease. There was no EGR observed in the remaining 25 patients (19.4%). CONCLUSION: This simple addition to the CCK-augmented hepatobiliary imaging may both detect and quantitate abnormal EGR as the cause of the patient's symptoms in the presence of a normal GBEF result, and/or those patients with risk factors for gastritis.  (+info)

The role of different P-glycoproteins in hepatobiliary secretion of fluorescently labeled short-chain phospholipids. (6/473)

Class III P-glycoproteins (Pgps) mediate biliary phosphatidylcholine (PC) secretion. Recent findings that class I P-glycoproteins are able to transport several short-chain phospholipid analogues raises questions about the role of these Pgps in physiological lipid transport. We investigated the biliary secretion of C6-7-nitro-2,1, 3-benzoxadiazol-4-yl (NBD)-labeled ceramide and its metabolites in Mdr1a/b and Mdr2 knockout mice compared to control mice. Biliary secretion of these NBD-lipids was unaffected in Mdr1a/b -/- mice. Thus neither Mdr1a nor Mdr1b Pgp mediates biliary secretion of these lipids. In contrast, secretion of all three NBD-labeled short-chain phospholipids was significantly reduced in Mdr2 -/- mice. As in vitro studies revealed that Mdr2 Pgp is not able to translocate these lipid analogues, we hypothesized that Mdr2 -/- mice had a reduced PC content of the exoplasmic canalicular membrane leaflet so that extraction of the short-chain lipid probes from this membrane by canalicular bile salts was impaired. To investigate this possibility we studied the bile salt-mediated extraction of natural sphingomyelin (SM) and NBD-labeled short-chain SM from small unilamellar vesicles of different lipid composition. Natural SM could be extracted by the bile salt tauroursodeoxycholate from vesicles containing PC, cholesterol (CHOL), and SM (1:2:2) but not from vesicles containing only SM and CHOL (3:2). NBD-labeled short-chain SM could be extracted from vesicles containing PC while its extraction from pure SM:CHOL vesicles was reduced by 65%. These data confirm that the efficiency of NBD-SM extraction depends on the lipid composition and suggest that the canalicular membrane outer leaflet of Mdr2 -/- mice has a reduced PC content.  (+info)

Cholesterol inhibits spontaneous action potentials and calcium currents in guinea pig gallbladder smooth muscle. (7/473)

Elevated cholesterol decreases agonist-induced contractility and enhances stone formation in the gallbladder. The current study was conducted to determine if and how the electrical properties and ionic conductances of gallbladder smooth muscle are altered by elevated cholesterol. Cholesterol was delivered as a complex with cyclodextrin, and effects were evaluated with intracellular recordings from intact gallbladder and whole cell patch-clamp recordings from isolated cells. Cholesterol significantly attenuated the spontaneous action potentials of intact tissue. Furthermore, calcium-dependent action potentials and calcium currents were reduced in the intact tissue and in isolated cells, respectively. However, neither membrane potential hyperpolarizations induced by the ATP-sensitive potassium channel opener, pinacidil, nor voltage-activated outward potassium currents were affected by cholesterol. Hyperpolarizations elicited by calcitonin gene-related peptide were reduced by cholesterol enrichment, indicating potential changes in receptor ligand binding and/or second messenger interactions. These data indicate that excess cholesterol can contribute to gallbladder stasis by affecting calcium channel activity, whereas potassium channels remained unaffected. In addition, cholesterol enrichment may also modulate receptor ligand behavior and/or second messenger interactions.  (+info)

Metabolism and disposition of [(14)C]1-nitronaphthalene in male Sprague-Dawley rats. (8/473)

In rats and mice, 1-nitronaphthalene (1-NN) produces both lung and liver toxicity. Even though these toxicities have been reported, the metabolism and disposition of 1-NN have not been elucidated. Therefore, studies were performed to characterize its fate after i.p. and i.v. administration to male Sprague-Dawley rats. After i.p. administration of [(14)C]1-NN (100 mg/kg; 60 microCi/kg), 84% of the dose was eliminated in the urine and feces by 48 h. At 96 h, 60% of the dose was recovered in the urine, 32% in the feces, and 1% collectively in the tissues, blood, and gastrointestinal contents. The terminal phase rate constant (k(term)) of 1-NN was 0.21 h(-1), the terminal phase half-life (T(1/2,term)) was 3.40 h, and the systemic bioavailability was 0.67. When administered i.v. (10 mg/kg; 120 microCi/kg), 85% of the dose was eliminated in the urine and feces by 24 h. At the end of the study (96 h), 56% of the dose was recovered in the urine, 36% in the feces, and 1% collectively in the tissues, blood, and gastrointestinal contents. Interestingly, 88% of the dose was secreted into bile by 8 h. The k(term) was 0.94 h(-1) and the T(1/2,term) was 0.77 h. The major urinary metabolite after both routes of administration was N-acetyl-S-(hydroxy-1-nitro-dihydronaphthalene)-L-cysteine. Other urinary metabolites identified include hydroxylated, dihydroxylated, glucuronidated, sulfated, and reduced metabolites, as well as dihydrodiol. The major biliary metabolite was hydroxy-glutathionyl-1-nitro-dihydronaphthalene. These data show that 1-NN undergoes extensive metabolism and enterohepatic recirculation, and the majority of the dose is eliminated in the urine.  (+info)

The gastrointestinal exam is used to assess patients for pathology affecting the gastrointestinal tract, hepatobiliary system or other abdominal organs.
However, some doctors may want to have incorporation of the pharmacogenomic data into the EMR. This would be quite handy. Using me as an example, if I ever get depression, I would let the doctor know the SSRIs above and the fact that I may, with these meds, require more of the usual dose and sooner. Additionally, I can see there the health maintenance reminder for a patient with LYNCH SYNDROME, for instance would be important. Individuals with Lynch syndrome have an increased risk of colorectal and endometrial cancer [1]. Other sites of cancer include the ovary, stomach, small bowel, hepatobiliary system, renal pelvis, ureter, brain, and skin. There may also be an increased risk of breast, prostate, and pancreatic cancer in individuals with Lynch syndrome.

Consistent with previous reports, the biliary excretion of acetaminophen glucuronide and acetaminophen glutathione was negligible in livers from Mrp2-deficient rats (Xiong et al., 2000; Chen et al., 2003). In contrast, the biliary excretion of AS was maintained partially in the absence of Mrp2. Recent reports suggested that BCRP, a transporter localized to the canalicular membrane in hepatocytes, may be capable of transporting sulfate conjugates (Maliepaard et al., 2001; Imai et al., 2003; Suzuki et al., 2003). To evaluate the potential contribution of Bcrp1 to biliary excretion of AS, acetaminophen disposition was studied in IPLs from wild-type Wistar and Mrp2-deficient TR- rats in the presence or absence of the Bcrp1 and P-glycoprotein inhibitor, GF120918.. GF120918 is an inhibitor of both P-glycoprotein and Bcrp1, but not Mrp2 (de Bruin et al., 1999; Evers et al., 2000; Shepard et al., 2003). This modulator has been used previously in recirculating IPLs to impair (∼10-fold) biliary ...

Isolated livers from Wistar rats (n = 6), or Wistar TR- rats (n = 6) were perfused with MPA (5 mg/l). A third group of Wistar rats (n = 6) was perfused with MPA and CsA (250 μg/l). There was no difference in the half-life, hepatic extraction ratio (EH), clearance or partial clearance of MPA to MPAGe, but there was a difference in partial clearance to MPAGa between control and CsA groups (0.9 ± 0.4 versus 0.5 ± 0.1 ml/min). TR- rats had a lower EH (0.59 ± 0.30 versus 0.95 ± 0.30), a lower clearance (18 ± 8 versus 29 ± 7 ml/min), and a longer half-life (19.5 ± 10.3 versus 10.1 ± 2.4 min) than controls. Compared to controls, MPAGe and MPAGa biliary excretion was reduced by 99% and 71.8%, respectively, in TR- ...

Fenestra® VC is a refined version of Fenestra® LC in which the surface of the lipid emulsion particles is modified so as to alter the recognition of the particle by the receptors on hepatocytes that are responsible for its uptake into the liver. With Fenestra VC, the delayed uptake by liver cells produces an agent with superior blood pool imaging properties that last for several hours after injection. Moreover, the agent remains truly intravascular so long as the endothelial integrity of the vessel is maintained. Like its liver-selective counterpart, Fenestra VC is eventually metabolized and eliminated through the hepatobiliary system.. Because of their comparatively long and stable in vivo residence times (up to several hours), the Fenestra® products have shown considerable promise for use in microCT imaging procedures. The numerous benefits provided by the Fenestra technology will play an instrumental role in facilitating the implementation of microCT imaging as an increasingly important ...

In the present study, a variety of techniques were used to investigate the effects of Ca2+ depletion on the transport properties and tight junctions of hepatocytes cultured in a sandwich configuration. The results indicate that: 1) Ca2+ depletion does not alter taurocholate transport; 2) Ca2+ depletion increases the permeability of tight junctions, thus disrupting the barrier between the canalicular lumen and the extracellular space; 3) integrity of the disrupted tight junctions cannot be re-established completely by incubation in the presence of Ca2+ for 1 h; and 4) taurocholate accumulation involves Michaelis-Menten nonlinear processes for uptake and biliary excretion.. Hepatocytes cultured in a collagen-sandwich configuration for 6 days form complete junctional complexes composed of a tight junction, intermediate junction, and desmosomes (LeCluyse et al., 1994). Recently, Talamini et al. (1997) demonstrated the existence of junctional protein, uvomorulin (E-cadherin), in hepatocytes cultured ...

The biliary tract refers to the path by which bile is secreted by the liver then transported to the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine. A structure common to most members of the mammal family, the biliary tract is often referred to as a tree because it begins with many small branches which end in the common bile duct, sometimes referred to as the trunk of the biliary tree. The duct, the branches of the hepatic artery, and the portal vein form the central axis of the portal triad. Bile flows in the direction opposite to that of the blood present in the other two channels. The system is usually referred to as the biliary tract or system, [2]and can include the use of the term hepatobiliary when used to refer just to the liver and bile ducts.[3] The name biliary tract is used to refer to all of the ducts, structures and organs involved in the production, storage and secretion of bile.[4] The tract is as follows: ...

N2 - ATP in bile is a potent secretogogue, stimulating cholangiocyte Cl- and fluid secretion via binding to membrane P2 receptors, though the physiological stimuli involved in biliary ATP release are unknown. The goal of the present studies was to determine the potential role of fluid flow in biliary ATP release and secretion. In both human Mz-Cha-1 biliary cells and normal rat cholangiocyte monolayers, exposure to flow increased relative ATP release which was proportional to the shear stress. In parallel studies, shear was associated with an increase in [Ca2+]i and membrane Cl- permeability, which were both dependent on ...
Damage of the biliary tract at the end of a period of hepatic preservation prior to liver transplantation has been observed in man. This damage may be important in the development of early biliary complications. A model of hepatic biliary ischaemia in the pig has been developed which permits comparison between the influences of warm and cold ischaemic damage on the biliary tract. The major damage to the biliary tract in the pig in this model appears to occur after prolonged cold preservation.
The molecular pathogenesis of biliary tract cancers is poorly understood. By performing immunohistochemical analysis of more than 125 surgically resected cases of biliary tract carcinoma, we have previously shown altered cell cycle regulatory protein expression in biliary tact cancers [13]. Our current findings also show mutated expression of a large number of cell cycle regulators including UBD, BCL2L2, CDC2, MCM2, and CDKN1C in all subtypes. Similarly, Kang et al. [15] found that expression of G1-S modulators were commonly mutated in 42 cases of IHC. Total loss of p16, p27, and Rb were detected at rates of in 36%, 31%, 12%, respectively, in cancer specimens. Furthermore, in the above study, even in 7 of 13 cases of biliary dysplasia, without frank carcinoma, abnormal expression of p53, cyclin D1 or p16 was detected. Kim et al. [16] reported that the mutation of the p53, p16, and K-ras genes occurred at rates of 36%, 31% and 20%, respectively, in GBC. A further finding of the above study was ...

Biliary-enteric anastomosis (BEA) is a common surgical procedure performed for the management of biliary obstruction or leakage that results from a variety of benign and malignant diseases. Complications following BEA are not rare. We aimed to determine the incidence and the factors associated with early complications occurring after BEA for benign diseases. We reviewed the medical records of all patients who underwent BEA for benign diseases at our institution between January 1988 and December 2009. The primary outcome was early post operative complication. Logistic regression analysis was done to identify factors predicting the occurrence of complications. Records of 79 patients were reviewed. There were 34 (43%) males and 45 (57% females). Majority (53%) had choledocholithiasis with impacted stone or distal stricture, followed by traumatic injury to the biliary system (33%). Thirty-four patients (43%) underwent a hepaticojejunostomy, 19 patients (24%) underwent a choledochojejunostomy, and

The biliary tract, (biliary tree or biliary system) refers to the liver, gall bladder and bile ducts, and how they work together to make, store and secrete bile. Bile consists of water, electrolytes, bile acids, cholesterol, phospholipids and conjugated bilirubin. Some components are synthesised by hepatocytes (liver cells), the rest are extracted from the blood by the liver. Bile is secreted by the liver into small ducts that join to form the common hepatic duct. Between meals, secreted bile is stored in the gall bladder. During a meal, the bile is secreted into the duodenum to rid the body of waste stored in the bile as well as aid in the absorption of dietary fats and oils. The biliary tract refers to the path by which bile is secreted by the liver then transported to the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine. A structure common to most members of the mammal family, the biliary tract is often referred to as a tree because it begins with many small branches which end in the common ...

A Tc-99m-labelled compound with the biological characteristics of flumazenil would be useful for determination of neuronal viability after the onset of a stroke. Therefore, we have derivatized Ro-15-3890 (a flumazenil metabolite bearing a carboxylic acid group instead of an ethyl ester) by coupling it with a bisamino bisthiol tetraligand bearing a 3-hydroxypropyl side chain (3-hydroxypropyl-BAT) to enable labelling with technetium-99m. After purification by RP-HPLC, the ligand was deprotected and labelled in a one pot reaction, yielding a Tc-99m-BAT-propylester of Ro-15-3890 (Tc-99m-techmazenil). Radio-LC-MS analysis of the isolated main peak showed the molecular ion mass (608.0618) of the expected Tc-99m-techmazenil. The biodistribution of Tc-99m-techmazenil was investigated in normal mice and indicated that the tracer is cleared from plasma mainly by the hepatobiliary system and shows a very low uptake in brain. In vitro binding studies on mice brain slices indicated that techmazenil does ...
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a monogenic disorder with a complex phenotype and clinical variability. It is observed in approximately 1 in 2500 births among Caucasians, and has a carrier frequency of 1 in 25 individuals, making it the most common lethal monogenetic disease within this demographic group. CF is caused by mutations in a 180 kb gene localized to the long arm of chromosome 7. The gene encodes the 1480 amino acid cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) protein.. CF cases present with complex phenotypes and clinical variability. Defects in CFTR lead to altered exocrine secretion and pathological changes in multiple organ systems. Therefore, CF provides an excellent example of the ways in which a single gene defect confers a wide variety of clinical symptoms. The most commonly affected organs include the airways, gastrointestinal (GI) tract, pancreas, sweat glands, hepatobiliary system, and genital tract. The most life-threatening clinical features of CF are recurrent and ...

The variations in natural language definitions of what constitutes an organ, their degree of precision, and the variations in how they map to ontologies and taxonomies in information science (for example, to count how many organs exist in a typical human body) are topics explored by writer Carl Engelking of Discover magazine in 2017 as he analyzed the science journalism coverage of the evolving scientific understanding of the mesentery.[11] He explored a challenge now faced by anatomists: as human understanding of ontology generally (that is, how things are defined, and how the relationship of one thing to another is defined) meets applied ontology and ontology engineering, unification of varying views is in higher demand.[11] However, such unification always faces epistemologic frontiers, as humans can only declare computer ontologies with certainty and finality to the extent that their own cognitive taxonomy (that is, science's understanding of the universe) is certain and final.
