Sulphated and unsulphated bile acids in serum, bile, and urine of patients with cholestasis. (1/1230)

Samples of serum, bile, and urine were collected simultaneously from patients with cholestasis of varying aetiology and from patients with cirrhosis; their bile acid composition was determined by gas/liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry. In cholestasis, the patterns in all three body fluids differed consistently and strikingly. In serum, cholic acid was the major bile acid and most bile acids (greater than 93%) were unsulphated, whereas, in urine, chenodeoxycholic was the major bile acid, and the majority of bile acids (greater than 60%) were sulphated. Secondary bile acids were virtually absent in bile, serum, and urine. The total amount of bile acids excreted for 24 hours correlated highly with the concentration of serum bile acids; in patients with complete obstruction, urinary excretion averaged 71-6 mg/24 h. In cirrhotic patients, serum bile acids were less raised, and chenodeoxycholic acid was the predominant acid. In healthy controls, serum bile acids were consistently richer in chenodeoxycholic acid than biliary bile acids, and no bile acids were present in urine. No unusual monohydroxy bile acids were present in patients with primary biliary cirrhosis, but, in several patients, there was a considerable amount of hyocholic acid present in the urinary bile acids. The analyses of individual bile acids in serum and urine did not appear to provide helpful information in the differential diagnosis of cholestasis. Thus, in cholestasis, conjugation of chenodeoxycholic acid with sulphate becomes a major biochemical pathway, urine becomes a major route of bile acid excretion, and abnormal bile acids are formed.  (+info)

Factor VII as a marker of hepatocellular synthetic function in liver disease. (2/1230)

Factor VII levels have been measured in 100 patients with liver disease following parenteral vitamin K1 therapy. There was good agreement between specific factor VII measurements and the one-stage prothrombin time apart from six patients with compensated cirrhosis in whom the prothrombin time was prolonged despite the presence of normal factor VII levels. A mean activity of 58% was found in patients with cirrhosis. Cirrhotic patients with features of hepatic decompensation had a significantly lower mean level of activity (40%) than the "contrast" patients with surgical obstruction of the major bile ducts (93%). Patients with chronic active liver disease had moderate depression of factor VII levels and those with non-cirrhotic liver damage had mean activities similar to the contrast group. Factor VII levels could not be correlated with BSP retention but there was a correlation with serum albumin concentration. It is concluded that the prothrombin time using Quick test with a standardized thromboplastin showing good sensitivity to factor VII, eg, the Manchester reagent (BCT), provides a reliable index of coagulability in chronic liver disease, and specific factor VII assays are not indicated.  (+info)

An interpretation of the serum alkaline phosphatase isoenzyme patterns in patients with obstructive liver disease. (3/1230)

Earlier studies have identified two main isoenzymes of alkaline phosphatase in the sera of patients with obstructive liver disease. This paper reports on a study of these isoenzymes in specific types of liver disease where the pathology in relation to bile duct obstruction is known. The results have been used to support the theory that in biliary obstruction the increase in serum alkaline phosphatase is in part due to regurgitation of the biliary isoenzymes.  (+info)

Villous adenoma of the bile ducts: a case report and a review of the reported cases in Korea. (4/1230)

Villous adenomas are benign epithelial lesions with malignant potential which can occur at any site in the gastrointestinal tract. They are usually encountered in the rectum and colon, less frequently in the small bowel and very rarely in the biliary trees. Nine cases of bile duct villous adenomas have been reported in the literature. However, 4 cases of bile duct villous adenomas have been reported in the Korean literature. Recently, we experienced a case of villous adenoma in the common hepatic duct in a 77-year-old man presenting with obstructive jaundice in which preoperative histologic diagnosis of villous adenoma played a critical role in managing this patient. Herein, we present a case report of bile duct villous adenoma and a review of the reported cases in Korea to help define and manage this rare disease entity in the bile ducts. In addition, confusing nomenclature of bile duct adenomas is discussed.  (+info)

High plasma cholesterol in drug-induced cholestasis is associated with enhanced hepatic cholesterol synthesis. (5/1230)

In alpha-naphthylisothiocyanate-treated mice, plasma phospholipid (PL) levels were elevated 10- and 13-fold at 48 and 168 h, respectively, whereas free cholesterol (FC) levels increased between 48 h (17-fold) and 168 h (39-fold). Nearly all of these lipids were localized to lipoprotein X-like particles in the low-density lipoprotein density range. The PL fatty acyl composition was indicative of biliary origin. Liver cholesterol and PL content were near normal at all time points. Hepatic hydroxymethylglutaryl CoA reductase activity was increased sixfold at 48 h, and cholesterol 7alpha-hydroxylase activity was decreased by approximately 70% between 24 and 72 h. These findings suggest a metabolic basis for the appearance of abnormal plasma lipoproteins during cholestasis. Initially, PL and bile acids appear in plasma where they serve to promote the efflux of cholesterol from hepatic cell membranes. Hepatic cholesterol synthesis is then likely stimulated in the response to the depletion of hepatic cell membranes of cholesterol. We speculate that the enhanced synthesis of cholesterol and impaired conversion to bile acids, particularly during the early phase of drug response, contribute to the accumulation of FC in the plasma.  (+info)

Obstructive jaundice and acute cholangitis due to papillary stenosis. (6/1230)

Papillary stenosis is characterized by fixed fibrosis leading to structural outflow obstruction and it is usually secondary to inflammation and fibrosis from the chronic passage of gallstones, episodes of acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, sclerosing cholangitis, peptic ulcer disease, and cholesterolosis. However, obstructive jaundice with or without acute cholangitis which leads the physician to suspect the presence of malignancy as a cause is a rare manifestation of papillary stenosis. We report here a case of papillary stenosis presenting with obstructive jaundice and acute cholangitis. The lesion was so difficult to exclude the presence of malignancy preoperatively and intraoperatively that a pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy was performed. Histologic examination of the resected specimen revealed fibrosis, adenomatoid ductal hyperplasia, and mild chronic inflammation of the papilla of Vater and distal common bile duct.  (+info)

MRP3, a new ATP-binding cassette protein localized to the canalicular domain of the hepatocyte. (7/1230)

Bile secretion in liver is driven in large part by ATP-binding cassette (ABC)-type proteins that reside in the canalicular membrane and effect ATP-dependent transport of bile acids, phospholipids, and non-bile acid organic anions. Canalicular ABC-type proteins can be classified into two subfamilies based on membrane topology and sequence identity: MDR1, MDR3, and SPGP resemble the multidrug resistance (MDR) P-glycoprotein, whereas MRP2 is similar in structure and sequence to the multidrug resistance protein MRP1 and transports similar substrates. We now report the isolation of the rMRP3 gene from rat liver, which codes for a protein 1522 amino acids in length that exhibits extensive sequence similarity with MRP1 and MRP2. Northern blot analyses indicate that rMRP3 is expressed in lung and intestine of Sprague-Dawley rats as well as in liver of Eisai hyperbilirubinemic rats and TR- mutant rats, which are deficient in MRP2 expression. rMRP3 expression is also transiently induced in liver shortly after birth and during obstructive cholestasis. Antibodies raised against MRP3 recognize a polypeptide of 190-200 kDa, which is reduced in size to 155-165 kDa after treatment with endoglycosidases. Immunoblot analysis and immunoconfocal microscopy indicate that rMRP3 is present in the canalicular membrane, suggesting that it may play a role in bile formation.  (+info)

The pathogenetic role of endogenous angiotensin II in stress ulcer in obstructive jaundice rats. (8/1230)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the pathogenetic role of endogenous angiotensin II (Ang II) in the mechanism of stress ulcer in obstructive jaundice rats and to detect the effect of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) on stress ulcer in obstructive jaundice rats. METHODS: After common bile duct ligation (CBDL) in Wistar rats, the content of plasma and gastric mucosal Ang II, gastric mucosal blood flow (GMBF) and gastric mucosal damage were measured, and the relationship among them was analyzed. RESULTS: The plasma Ang II contents increased much more significantly at 1, 3, 7 and 14 days following CBDL than those in non-CBDL rats (P < 0.05, < 0.01, < 0.01 and < 0.01, respectively). Within 120 minutes following cold-restraint stress, plasma and gastric mucosal Ang II contents were elevated, GMBF decreased, and ulcer index and gastric mucosal damage increased more significantly than those in non-cold-restraint stress rats (P < 0.05, < 0.05, < 0.01, < 0.01 and < 0.05, respectively). Administration of an ACEI, enalaprili, to CBDL rats (5 mg.kg-1.day-1, orally for two days) before stress reduced both the plasma and gastric mucosal Ang II levels, inhibited the decrease of GMBF and decreased ulcer index and gastric mucosal damage (P < 0.001, < 0.01, < 0.01, < 0.01 and < 0.05, respectively). CONCLUSION: The endogenous Ang II plays a significant pathogenetic role in the development of stress ulcer in obstructive jaundice rats, and ACEI may prevent stress ulcer.  (+info)

Obstetric cholestasis (synonymintrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy) is rapidly emerging from the realms of clinical impressions into a scientific framework. Obstetricians, not least in Britain, have maintained a generally sceptical attitude towards attempts to recognise it as a significant clinical entity. Nevertheless, a consensus is emerging which acknowledges that obstetric cholestasis has major clinical implications for mother and baby.1 The pregnant woman may be driven to distraction by severe pruritus, most severely felt on hands and feet, which leads to regular cold baths and other ineffectual palliation during stressful sleepless nights. The brush off that itching is of no consequence and that everyone itches in pregnancy merely adds insult to injury. Mothers with a history of obstetric cholestasis have a higher incidence of gallstones. Babies are at increased risk of premature labour with fetal distress and there is a significantly increased risk of stillbirth. Traditional ...
Cholestasis is a condition where bile cannot flow from the liver to the duodenum. The two basic distinctions are an obstructive type of cholestasis where there is a mechanical blockage in the duct system that can occur from a gallstone or malignancy, and metabolic types of cholestasis which are disturbances in bile formation that can occur because of genetic defects or acquired as a side effect of many medications. Itchiness (pruritus). Pruritus is the primary symptom of cholestasis and is thought to be due to interactions of serum bile acids with opioidergic nerves. In fact, the opioid antagonist naltrexone is used to treat pruritus due to cholestasis. Jaundice. Jaundice is an uncommon occurrence in intrahepatic (metabolic) cholestasis, but is common in obstructive cholestasis. Pale stool. This symptom implies obstructive cholestasis.

Cholestasis comprises aetiologically heterogeneous conditions characterized by accumulation of bile acids in the liver that actively contribute to liver damage. Sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) regulates liver regeneration and bile acid metabolism via modulating the farnesoid X receptor (FXR); we here investigate its role in cholestatic liver disease. We determined SIRT1 expression in livers from patients with cholestatic disease, in two experimental models of cholestasis, as well as in human and murine liver cells in response to bile acid loading. SIRT1 overexpressing (SIRToe) and hepatocyte‐specific SIRT1‐KO mice (SIRThep‐/‐) were subjected to BDL and were fed with 0.1%DDC diet to determine the biological relevance of SIRT1 during cholestasis. The effect of NorUDCA was tested in BDL/SIRToe mice. We found that SIRT1 was highly expressed in livers from cholestatic patients, mice after BDL and Mdr2‐/‐ animals. The detrimental effects of SIRT1 during cholestasis were validated in vivo and in vitro. ...
Today I am finally sharing Romans Newborn Lifestyle shoot photos! I am so happy that despite the rushed circumstances of Romans birth, we were able to put this shoot together and capture such beautiful moments.. As many of you may already know, I delivered Roman 18 days earlier than his originally anticipated arrival due to a pregnancy complication called Obstetric Cholestasis. In short, Obstetric Cholestasis is a rare pregnancy complication caused by a build-up of bile acids in the bloodstream. The bile salts in the blood cause a persistent and in my opinion, uncontrollable itch on the skin and most notably on the soles of your feet. The bile in the bloodstream could have potentially become toxic to my little Roman and therefore I was induced on May 31, 2016 and gave birth on Wednesday, June 1, 2016, three days before my scheduled maternity photo shoot.. Therefore, my maternity photo shoot turned into Romans Newborn Lifestyle photo shoot. The nursery was not yet finished and I had not ...
Extrahepatic cholestasis leads to complex injury and repair processes that result in bile infarct formation, neutrophil infiltration, cholangiocyte and hepatocyte proliferation, extracellular matrix remodeling, and fibrosis. To identify early molecular mechanisms of injury and repair after bile duct obstruction, microarray analysis was performed on liver tissue 24 hours after bile duct ligation (BDL) or sham surgery. The most upregulated gene identified encodes plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 (PAI-1, Serpine 1), a protease inhibitor that blocks urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) and tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA) activity. Because PAI-1, uPA, and tPA influence growth factor and cytokine processing as well as extracellular matrix remodeling, we evaluated the role of PAI-1 in cholestatic liver injury by comparing the injury and repair processes in wild-type (WT) and PAI-1-deficient (PAI-1-/-) mice after BDL. PAI-1-/- mice had fewer and smaller bile infarcts, less neutrophil infiltration, and
Background/Aim: To study the oxidative stress status in children with cholestatic chronic liver disease by determining activities of glutathione peroxidase (GPx), superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) in liver tissue. Materials and Methods: A total of 34 children suffering from cholestatic chronic liver disease were studied. They were selected from the Hepatology Clinic, Cairo University, and compared with seven children who happened to have incidental normal liver biopsy. The patients were divided into three groups: extrahepatic biliary atresia (n=13), neonatal hepatitis (n=15) and paucity of intrahepatic bile ducts (n=6); GPx, SOD and CAT levels were measured in fresh liver tissue using ELISA. Results: In the cholestatic patients, a significant increase was found in mean levels of SOD, GPx and CAT in hepatic tissue compared to control children. The three enzymes significantly increased in the extrahepatic biliary atresia group, whereas in the groups of neonatal hepatitis and paucity of ...
Cholestasis is a condition that results when excretion of bile acids from the liver is interrupted. Liver injury occurs in both humans and animals as a result of cholestasis, and recent studies have shown that inflammation is required for injury. The mechanism by which cholestasis increases production of proinflammatory mediators is not completely understood. One recent study showed that farnesoid X receptor (FXR), a bile acid nuclear receptor, upregulates proinflammatory mediators in response to bile acids in vitro. This suggests that FXR is important for inflammation during cholestasis. To test this hypothesis in vivo, wild-type and FXR knockout mice were subjected to bile duct ligation (BDL), a commonly used model of cholestasis. Three days later, levels of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and macrophage inflammatory protein-2 (MIP-2), both important for the recruitment of neutrophils to the liver, were measured. ICAM-1 levels were increased to a similar extent in wild-type and FXR ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The genetics of complex cholestatic disorders. AU - Hirschfield, Gideon M.. AU - Chapman, Roger W.. AU - Karlsen, Tom H.. AU - Lammert, Frank. AU - Lazaridis, Konstantinos N.. AU - Mason, Andrew L.. PY - 2013/6. Y1 - 2013/6. N2 - Cholestatic liver diseases are caused by a range of hepatobiliary insults and involve complex interactions among environmental and genetic factors. Little is known about the pathogenic mechanisms of specific cholestatic diseases, which has limited our ability to manage patients with these disorders. However, recent genome-wide studies have provided insight into the pathogenesis of gallstones, primary biliary cirrhosis, and primary sclerosing cholangitis. A lithogenic variant in the gene that encodes the hepatobiliary transporter ABCG8 has been identified as a risk factor for gallstone disease; this variant has been associated with altered cholesterol excretion and metabolism. Other variants of genes encoding transporters that affect the composition of ...

A pregnant woman in labour who is an IVF patient who has obstetric cholestasis a rare complication of pregnancy. Which is a build-up of bile acids in the bloodstream and liver. Southmead hospital, Bristol. - Paul Box - 2012-09-23 - PB1303055.JPG
Obstetric cholestasis is a rare condition that only affects you if you are pregnant. In the UK fewer than 1 in 100 pregnant women will develop it.
As part of medical care subjects will be undergoing an endoscopic procedure (ERCP) in order to evaluate and stent a bile duct blockage. During the ECRP and just prior to the stent placement subjects will undergo the placement of a radiofrequency ablation catheter into the bile duct blockage. Heat will be applied to the bile duct in order to open the blockage and prevent the re-growth of tissue into the stent; after the radiofrequency ablation, stent will be placed. Three days after the procedure subjects will receive a phone call from the research coordinator to check any adverse or unwanted effects of the treatment. The study procedure (radiofrequency ablation) takes place over 10 minutes during ERCP. The subjects will undergo routine follow up for their medical problems. No follow up visits are required as part of the study ...

Cholestasis is a significant risk factor for immediate hepatic failure due to ischemia reperfusion (I/R) injury in patients undergoing liver surgery or transplantation. We recently demonstrated that inhibition of Hedgehog (Hh) signaling with cyclopamine (CYA) before I/R prevents liver injury. In this study we hypothesized that Hh signaling may modulate I/R injury in cholestatic rat liver. Cholestasis was induced by bile duct ligation (BDL). Seven days after BDL, rats were exposed to either CYA or vehicle for 7 days daily before being subjected to 30 min of ischemia and 4 h of reperfusion. Expression of Hh ligands (Sonic Hedgehog, Patched-1 and Glioblastoma-1), assessment of liver injury, neutrophil infiltration, cytokines, lipid peroxidation, cell proliferation and apoptosis were determined. Significant upregulation of Hh ligands was seen in vehicle treated BDL rats. I/R injury superimposed on these animals resulted in markedly elevated serum alanine transaminase (ALT), aspartate transaminase ...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Pituitary stalk interruption syndrome (PSIS) is characterized by a thin or absent pituitary stalk, hypoplasia of the adenohypophysis, and ectopic neurohypophysis. PSIS manifestations include a wide spectrum of clinical phenotypes and pituitary hormone deficiencies of variable degree and timing of onset. In this review, recent advances with respect to the cause of PSIS, clinical characteristics leading to earlier diagnosis, and management are outlined. RECENT FINDINGS: Diagnosis of PSIS is often delayed probably because clinical findings such as neonatal hypoglycemia, cholestasis, and/or micropenis as well as decreasing growth velocity are not appropriately and timely validated ...
Bile duct ligation (BDL) induces primary biliary cirrhosis characterized by cholestasis, impaired liver function and cognition including impairment of memory formation and anxiety-like behaviors. Endogenous opioid and acetylcholine levels are elevated in animal model of cholestasis. In addition, there is no data about the effects of interaction opioidergic and cholinergic systems of dorsal hippocampus (CA1) on amnesia-induced by cholestasis. Male mice weighing 25�??35 g were used in this study. Cholestasis was induced by the ligation of the common bile duct. One-trial step-down and hole-board paradigms were used for the assessment of memory retrieval and anxiety-like behaviors respectively. All drugs injected intra-CA1. The data showed that cholestasis (24 days after BDL) decreased memory retrieval. Sole intra-CA1 injection of higher dose of mecamylamine (0.125, 0.25, 0.5 and 1 µg/mice) and scopolamine (0.125, 0.25, 0.5 1 and 2 µg/mice) but not all doses of naloxone (0.0125, 0.025 and ...
Cholestasis of pregnancy is a liver problem. It slows or stops the normal flow of bile from the gallbladder. This causes itching and yellowing of your skin, eyes, and mucous membranes (jaundice). Cholestasis sometimes starts in early pregnancy. But it is more common in the second and third trimesters. It most often goes away within a few days after delivery. The high levels of bile may cause serious problems for your developing baby (fetus).

Neonatal cholestasis is never physiological but rather is a sign of hepatobiliary and/or metabolic disorders, some of which might be fatal if not identified and treated rapidly. A step-wise timely.
We have previously shown that SHP is a transcriptional repressor of CYP2D6 expression (Koh et al., 2014), and activation of the FXR and SHP pathways by using a synthetic FXR agonist leads to decreased CYP2D6 expression and activity (Pan et al., 2015). Bile acids are endogenous activators of FXR that are capable of upregulating SHP within hours (Fang et al., 2007; Miao et al., 2009); however, it remains unclear how chronically elevated concentrations of bile acids (e.g., in cholestatic conditions) affect SHP expression/activity and thus its regulation of CYP2D6 expression. In this study, we employed CA feeding in mice to mimic cholestatic conditions and unexpectedly found that CA feeding decreased SHP protein levels, thus increasing CYP2D6 expression and activity.. In this study, mRNA expression levels of SHP were similar between the control and CA-fed mice, but SHP protein expression was decreased upon CA feeding. The lack of SHP induction by bile acids was also observed in a previous study ...
The historical introductory chapter brings home the almost startling rapidity with which the field has developed. Less than half a century ago it was first understood that bile secretion was an active process which could be sustained against a pressure gradient in contradistinction to urine. The energy which drives secretion is now known to emanate from an array of ATP binding cassette transporters responsible for secretion of osmotically active bile solutes. Many of those transporters have been cloned and characterised and disease associations worked out.. Similarly, the function and feedback regulation of a host of genes whose products contribute to the composition and secretion of bile is explained, along with the changes induced by various cholestatic perturbations. The scope of the book is comprehensive, including all aspects of cell physiology pertinent to bile formation for the hepatocyte and cholangiocyte, and extensive data on the causes and consequences of cholestasis. The basic ...

Cholestasis is a term used to denote a condition in which obstruction of the bile duct prevents the normal flow of bile from the liver to the duodenum (a part of small intestine). Cholestasis can occur due to number of underlying diseases, including diseases of the liver, gallbladder, or pancreas.
Biliary obstruction is importantly influencing quality of life and survival of patients suffering from primary or secondary bile duct malignancies. The

My mom arrived a week after I sprained my ankle twisting it off my shoe and shortly after I was diagnosed with Cholestasis, which is bile spilling into your bloodstream. It affects approximately 0.7% of white pregnant females. Apparently I am good at weird odds. About two weeks ago, Id suddenly been up for two nights with intense itching all night long (sleeping with a towel to itch myself instead of using my fingernails), and ended up in labor and delivery on a Saturday morning. Luckily Kaiser was familiar with Cholestasis, and had me started on medications even before all the labs came back. I was feeling way less itchy after about four days. Its an important one to catch, because if it gets out of control or goes undiagnosed, you have a higher risk of preterm labor or stillborn birth. With Cholestasis they want to deliver twins in the 37th week ...

Its only been every week since we had sex however ive been having cd23 symptoms of pregnancy cramps on the backside of my stomach and my breasts are sore. Not that I learn about. I feel it appears to can the baby move too much during pregnancy common with new parents, I didnt read it so cannot inform if its any good myself. You probably have extreme itching all over, significantly at night time, you may have obstetric cholestasis (OC). While can the baby move too much during pregnancy an irregular period could make it more challenging to get pregnant (since it is not always quite as clear when you are going to ovulateudring probably conceive), the excellent news is that this is often a highly treatable condition. This contains scans and checks, screening, and free dental care. The changes in these secretions in your cervix play a huge position in your fertility and ovulation.

I know how you feel with the midwifes when I was up at the hospital I was sat waiting for an hour before I was seen and they were the same then, had know idea what it was and when pupps was mentioned they had blank expressions. Went to see mw last thurs for routine check and also yesterday for routine check and when they asked about my rash and asked if i had been told what it was, again when pupps was mentioned they had no idea. I think because only 1% of woman actually suffer from not everyone knows and unless they actually come across a case they dont research it. Pupps does have a rash with it, if there is no rash then it could be obstetric cholestasis which is a liver disorder. My rash is know alot better and has cleared up completely on bump and arms, its just on my legs now still taking stuff docs prescribed ...

We present a case of Primary cytomegalovirus infection presented in mid-trimester with itching and obstetric cholestasis like picture. To the best of our knowledge the similarities between primary CMV and obstetric cholestasis, when presenting during pregnancy, have not been highlighted before in the literature. Case Report: A 36 year old lady presented to antenatal clinic at 23+4 weeks gestational age with intense itching. Bile acids and ALT were raised so she was treated as obstetric cholestasis whilst other results were awaited. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) antibodies, immunoglobulin G (IgG) and IgM were positive despite being negative at booking, suggesting an acquisition of CMV at approximately 18 weeks gestation. This article highlights the details of her case including the management and consequences of cytomegalovirus in pregnancy. Conclusion: This case report highlights the importance of the awareness of the clinicians with the condition as a differential diagnosis to obstetric cholestasis. CMV should
The differential diagnosis of neonatal cholestasis is extensive; etiologies are often divided into obstructive, infectious, and metabolic causes (2). Hypothyroidism and hypopituitarism are 2 endocrinopathies associated with neonatal cholestasis. Hyperthyroidism is not typically considered a cause of neonatal conjugated hyperbilirubinemia, although to date 2 previous reports have detailed instances in which hyperthyroid infants born to mothers with Graves disease have developed cholestasis (3,4). In addition, hepatic dysfunction with cholestatic jaundice has also been reported in adults with symptomatic hyperthyroidism (5). We present a third case of neonatal cholestasis associated with hyperthyroidism and suggest that hyperthyroidism be considered a potential etiology of cholestasis and liver dysfunction in neonates.. Neonatal hyperthyroidism caused by maternal Graves disease is a transient process because of transplacental passage of maternal antibodies, which stimulate the fetal thyroid. A ...
Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy (ICP), also termed Obstetric Cholestasis in the United Kingdom, is a reversible form of cholestasis, a liver disorder that occurs in pregnant women. ICP gives rise to troublesome itching during pregnancy but may lead to possibly serious complications for the mother and very serious outcomes for the fetus. Itching has long been considered to be a common symptom of pregnancy. The vast majority of times, itching, or pruritus is a minor annoyance caused by changes to the skin, especially that of the abdomen.. Cholestasis is a condition that impairs the release of a digestive fluid called bile from liver cells. As a result, bile builds up in the liver, impairing liver function. Because the problems with bile release occur within the liver (intrahepatic), the condition is described as intrahepatic cholestasis. Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy usually becomes apparent in the third trimester of pregnancy and recurs in 45 to 70% of subsequent pregnancies. Bile ...
Progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis 2 is a rare condition and is one of many forms of cholestasis. Cholestasis is a rare disease where a persons liver can not move the bile it makes to the small intestine. The liver, an organ, is responsible for producing bile. Bile is a compound that helps people digest fats. Once the bile has been made, it is supposed to go to the small intestine, another organ, to digest the fats there. However, in people with cholestasis, the bile can not move to the small intestine because there is either a physical block or because the bile is stuck in the liver cells. Symptoms of cholestasis are itchiness, jaundice (yellowing of the skin), pale stool, and dark urine. People with progressive familial intraheptic cholestasis 2 are not able to move the bile from the cells in the liver that produce it to the small intestine to digest fats. Talk with your doctor to find the best treatment for you if you have been diagnosed with progressive familial intraheptic ...
The prominent finding of this large retrospective study is the presence of marked intraparenchymal cholestasis on liver biopsy as an independent predictor of survival, along with age and the Maddreys score. Among other histological lesions commonly observed in ASH[20] bilirubinostasis was also the sole predictor of outcome. Interpretation of intrahepatic cholestasis is especially challenging in patients with decompensated cirrhosis at risk of developing biliary tract disease, infection or sepsis. In the latter situation, intrahepatic cholestasis is a prominent finding[13]. Having reasonably excluded the role of bile duct lesions or concomitant sepsis with the complete work-up performed at admission, intraparenchymal cholestasis can be considered as a lesion associated with ASH, as previously suggested[21]. Our results are in line with the study by Nissenbaum et al.[9] who reported lobular cholestasis in 38% of patients that correlated to malnutrition and a poor clinical outcome. In a recent ...
Accumulation of bile acids is a major mediator of cholestatic liver injury. Recent studies indicate bile acid composition between humans and rodents is dramatically different, as humans have a higher percent of glycine conjugated bile acids and increased chenodeoxycholate content, which increases the hydrophobicity index of bile acids. This increase may lead to direct toxicity that kills hepatocytes, and promotes inflammation. To address this issue, this study assessed how pathophysiological concentrations of bile acids measured in cholestatic patients affected primary human hepatocytes. Individual bile acid levels were determined in serum and bile by UPLC/QTOFMS in patients with extrahepatic cholestasis with, or without, concurrent increases in serum transaminases. Bile acid levels increased in serum of patients with liver injury, while biliary levels decreased, implicating infarction of the biliary tracts. To assess bile acid-induced toxicity in man, primary human hepatocytes were treated with ...
Mutations in the ATP8B1 gene cause two autosomal recessive disorders affecting liver: cholestasis, benign recurrent intrahepatic, 1 (BRIC1), cholestasis, progressive familial intrahepatic, 1 (PFIC1) and one autosomal dominant disorder: cholestasis, intrahepatic, of pregnancy, 1 (ICP1). BRIC2 is caused by mutations in the ABCB11 gene. PFIC can be caused by mutations in three other genes: ABCB11 (PFIC2), ABCB4 (PFIC3) and TJP2 (PFIC4). Mutations in the ABCB4 gene have been reported in ICP3. BRIC is characterized by intermittent episodes of cholestasis without extrahepatic bile duct obstruction. PFIC is characterized by early onset of cholestasis that progresses to hepatic fibrosis, cirrhosis, and end-stage liver disease before adulthood. ICP typically occurs in the third trimester and it recurs in 45 to 70% of subsequent pregnancies. Findings include pruritus, jaundice, increased serum bile salts, and abnormal liver enzymes. This condition is reversible, but it can result in fetal complications ...

To elucidate the consequences of extrahepatic cholestasis on the structure and function of hepatocytes, we studied the effects of bile duct ligation on the turnover, surface distribution, and functional activity of the canalicular 100-kD bile salt transport protein (cBSTP). Basolateral (blLPM) and canalicular (cLPM) liver plasma membrane vesicles were purified to the same degree from normal and cholestatic rat livers and the membrane bound cBSTP identified and quantitated using polyclonal anti-cBSTP antibodies. Cholestasis of 50 h resulted in an increased release of cBSTP into bile, thereby decreasing its in vivo half-life from 65 to 25 h. Furthermore, a significant portion of cBSTP accumulated at the basolateral surface and in intracellular vesicles of cholestatic hepatocytes. This redistribution of cBSTP was functionally paralleled by decreased and increased electrogenic taurocholate anion transport in cLPM and blLPM vesicles, respectively. These results demonstrate that biliary obstruction ...

Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP), also known as obstetric cholestasis, cholestasis of pregnancy, jaundice of pregnancy, and prurigo gravidarum, is a medical condition in which cholestasis occurs during pregnancy. It typically presents with troublesome itching and can lead to complications for both mother and fetus. Pruritus (itching) has long been considered to be a common symptom of pregnancy. The vast majority of times, itching is a minor annoyance caused by changes to the skin, especially that of the abdomen. However, there are instances when itching is a symptom of ICP. This is usually most intense on the palms of the hands, and the soles of the feet, but can be widespread. ICP occurs most commonly in the third trimester, but can begin at any time during the pregnancy. Most women with this condition present in third trimester with itching without a rash. Typically, the itching is localized to the palms of the hands and soles of the feet but can be anywhere on the body. Hallmarks ...
In recent years, our knowledge about the pathogenesis, pathophysiology and treatment of hepatobiliary diseases has increased considerably. The molecular basis of cholestatic disorders as well as of gallstone disease is increasingly recognized. This has resulted in improved diagnosis, for instance in hereditary forms of intrahepatic cholestasis, and advances in treatment, for example in primary biliary cirrhosis and other chronic cholestatic disorders. This book, the proceedings of a Falk Workshop held in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, on June 9-10, 2000, brings together contributions from scientists and clinicians to highlight the most recent advances in molecular biology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and therapy of diseases of the hepatobiliary system.

Myosin Vb (MYO5B) is a motor protein that facilitates protein trafficking and recycling in polarized cells by RAB11- and RAB8-dependent mechanisms. Biallelic MYO5B mutations are identified in the majority of patients with microvillus inclusion disease (MVID). MVID is an intractable diarrhea of infantile onset with characteristic histopathologic findings that requires life-long parenteral nutrition or intestinal transplantation. A large number of such patients eventually develop cholestatic liver disease. Bi-allelic MYO5B mutations are also identified in a subset of patients with predominant early-onset cholestatic liver disease. We present here the compilation of 114 patients with disease-causing MYO5B genotypes, including 44 novel patients as well as 35 novel MYO5B mutations, and an analysis of MYO5B mutations with regard to functional consequences. Our data support the concept that (1) a complete lack of MYO5B protein or early MYO5B truncation causes predominant intestinal disease (MYO5B-MVID), (2)
Fifteen patients with cholestatic disorders were treated for 1 to 5 months with phenobarbital. Primary biliary cirrhosis was diagnosed in seven, sclerosing cholangitis in two, intrahepatic biliary hypoplasia in three, and cholestatic hepatitis in three. Except for the patients with cholestatic hepatitis, in whom marked cholestasis was virtually the only abnormality in liver biopsy specimens, serum bilirubin and bile acid concentrations were diminished during therapy, the hepatic clearance of sulfobromophthalein and 131I-rose bengal was variably enhanced, and there was relief from pruritus. Serum cholesterol concentrations and other measures of hepatic function were not significantly changed during therapy except for serum alkaline phosphatase activity, which rose in twelve patients. Parallel changes occurred in 5′-nucleotidase, suggesting a hepatic origin for the alkaline phosphatase activity. These studies indicate that phenobarbital therapy is associated with improvement in organic anion ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - X-linked cholestasis in mouse due to mutations of the P4-ATPase ATP11C. AU - Siggs, Owen M.. AU - Schnabl, Bernd. AU - Webb, Bill. AU - Beutler, Bruce. PY - 2011/5/10. Y1 - 2011/5/10. N2 - Transporters at the hepatic canalicular membrane are essential for the formation of bile and the prevention of cholestatic liver disease. One such example is ATP8B1, a P4-type ATPase disrupted in three inherited forms of intrahepatic cholestasis. Mutation of the X-linked mouse gene Atp11c, which encodes a paralogous P4-type ATPase, precludes B-cell development in the adult bone marrow, but also causes hyperbilirubinemia. Here we explore this hyperbilirubinemia in two independent Atp11c mutant mouse lines, and find that it originates from an effect on nonhematopoietic cells. Liver function tests and histology revealed only minor pathology, although cholic acid was elevated in the serum of mutant mice, and became toxic to mutant mice when given as a dietary supplement. The majority of homozygous ...

definition of SCIH, what does SCIH mean?, meaning of SCIH, Sickle Cell Intrahepatic Cholestasis, SCIH stands for Sickle Cell Intrahepatic Cholestasis
Cholestatic liver disease refers to a condition that impairs the production or flow of bile. It can cause itchiness in pregnant women and jaundice for newborns.
Malignant bile duct obstruction is a common problem among cancer patients with hepatic or lymphatic metastases. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC) with the placement of a stent is the method of choice to improve biliary flow. Only little data exist concerning the outcome of patients with malignant biliary obstruction in relationship to microbial isolates from bile. Bile samples were taken during the ERC procedure in tumor patients with biliary obstruction. Clinical data including laboratory values, tumor-specific treatment and outcome data were prospectively collected. 206 ERC interventions in 163 patients were recorded. In 43 % of the patients, systemic treatment was (re-) initiated after successful biliary drainage. A variety of bacteria and fungi was detected in the bile samples. One-year survival was significantly worse in patients from whom multiresistant pathogens were isolated than in patients, in whom other species were detected. Increased levels of inflammatory markers were associated

Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (obstetric cholestasis) is characterised by pruritus, otherwise unexplained deranged liver enzyme levels, and elevated levels of serum bile acid.1 The itching typically subsides almost immediately after delivery and the serum bile acid and liver enzyme levels normalise within a few weeks.2 Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy usually presents in the late second and third trimester3 although it has been reported as early as 6-10 weeks gestation.4. Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy affects about 0.7% of pregnancies in the United Kingdom, varying by ethnic group,5 and usually runs a relatively benign course. The condition is associated with increased rates of spontaneous preterm labour, antepartum passage of meconium, and asphyxial events, but its relation to perinatal mortality is uncertain; early studies reported an increased risk of stillbirth, but some recent studies have cast doubt on the magnitude of the increased risk.1 Interpretation has been ...
Objective : To determine the risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes resulting from intrahepatic cholestasis. Methods : We analyzed 91 women with singleton pregnancies complicated by cholestasis who gave birth at Kuopio University Hospital from January 1990 to December 1996. Logistic regression analysis was used to compare pregnancy outcomes of this...
The placement of SEMS with minor ES is better comparable with the incidence of PEP in previous large clinical trials. Post ES bleeding was lower in minor ES comparable to standard sphincterotomy. The bleeding rate of SEMS insertion after minor ES was lower compared with standard sphincterotomy prior to stent placement. Minor ES was safe and effective procedure as not increasing severe bleeding to facilitate the SEMS placement in patients with malignant biliary obstruction.. ...
SummaryIntroduction Cholestasis and the newborn infant are a heterogeneous group of diseases that pose a problem etiologic diagnosis and management. Objective Report our experience in cholestasis in newborns and infants. Patients and methods This is a retrospective study of 60 cases of infants with cholestatic jaundice collected in the pediatric ward of the University Hospital of Marrakech Mohamed {VI} over a period from January 2008 to September 2014. Results The frequency of cholestasis was 10.7 cases/year, the average age was 5 months (17 days-2 years), and the peak frequency was noted at 2 months with a male predominance (61.6%) and inbreeding in 40% of cases. Cholestasis was total and permanent in 60% of cases. A laboratory test was disrupted in all cases showing a very significant cytolysis in 33% of cases, a biological cholestasis with normal {GGT} in 4 cases. Abdominal ultrasound showed absence of visualization of the gall bladder in 14.5% of cases, liver cirrhosis with portal hypertension 14.5%
Viral hepatitis characterized by prolonged cholestasis has not been associated with a specific serologic marker. We report the cases of six patients presenting with a clinical syndrome typical of cholestatic hepatitis who were subsequently found to have acute hepatitis A. Usual features include pruritus, fever, diarrhea, and weight loss with serum bilirubin levels greater than 10 mg/dL, and a clinical course lasting at least 12 weeks. All patients recovered completely without sequelae. Knowledge of this unusual manifestation of hepatitis A may help avoid potentially invasive procedures involved in the evaluation of suspected obstructive jaundice and facilitate appropriate immunoprophylactic measures. ...

Cholestasis is defined as a decrease in bile flow due to impaired secretion by hepatocytes or to obstruction of bile flow through intra-or extrahepatic bile ducts. Therefore, the clinical definition of cholestasis is any condition in which substances normally excreted into bile are retained.
Disrupted regulation and accumulation of bile salts (BS) in the liver can contribute towards progressive liver damage, cholestasis and fibrosis. Adverse outcome pathways (AOPs) are a promising tool for the development of in vitro toxicity screening tests as they provide us with key events, which we can use when establishing cell-based models. The proposed AOP for cholestasis and established AOP for liver fibrosis provide us with specific events involved in each condition. However, certain key events occur in both AOPs such as apoptosis and inflammation. Here, we investigated the role of BS in the progression of cholestatic injury and liver fibrosis using 3D scaffold-free multicellular human liver microtissues (MTs) comprising the cell lines HepaRG, THP-1 and hTERT-HSCs. We demonstrated that low concentrations of BS led to down-regulation of CYP7A1 and increased stellate cell activation, which are key events specific to cholestasis and fibrosis, respectively. We also identified that BS elicit ...

Today I am finally sharing Romans Newborn Lifestyle shoot photos! I am so happy that despite the rushed circumstances of Romans birth, we were able to put this shoot together and capture such beautiful moments.. As many of you may already know, I delivered Roman 18 days earlier than his originally anticipated arrival due to a pregnancy complication called Obstetric Cholestasis. In short, Obstetric Cholestasis is a rare pregnancy complication caused by a build-up of bile acids in the bloodstream. The bile salts in the blood cause a persistent and in my opinion, uncontrollable itch on the skin and most notably on the soles of your feet. The bile in the bloodstream could have potentially become toxic to my little Roman and therefore I was induced on May 31, 2016 and gave birth on Wednesday, June 1, 2016, three days before my scheduled maternity photo shoot.. Therefore, my maternity photo shoot turned into Romans Newborn Lifestyle photo shoot. The nursery was not yet finished and I had not ...

Cholestasis, benign recurrent intrahepatic, 2 (BRIC2) [MIM:605479]: A disorder characterized by intermittent episodes of cholestasis without progression to liver failure. There is initial elevation of serum bile acids, followed by cholestatic jaundice which generally spontaneously resolves after periods of weeks to months. The cholestatic attacks vary in severity and duration. Patients are asymptomatic between episodes, both clinically and biochemically. {ECO:0000269,PubMed:15300568, ECO:0000269,PubMed:16039748}.

Background: Cognitive functions are impaired in patients with liver disease. Bile duct ligation causes cholestasis that impairs liver function. This study investigated the impact of cholestasis progression on the acquisition and retention times in the passive avoidance test and on the locomotor activity of rats. Methods: Cholestasis was induced in male Wistar rats by ligating the main bile duct. Locomotor activity, learning and memory were assessed by the passive avoidance learning test at day 7, day 14, and day 21 post-bile duct ligation. The serum levels of bilirubin, alanine aminotransferase, and alkaline phosphatase were measured. Results: The results showed that acquisition time and locomotor activity were not affected at day 7 and day 14, but they were significantly (P , 0.05) impaired at day 21 post-bile duct ligation compared with the results for the control group. Additionally, memory was significantly impaired on day 7 (P , 0.01), day 14, and day 21 (P , 0.001) compared with the ...
Youd be forgiven if your first thought reading this was what on earth is ICP, Ive never heard of it. That was very much my reaction whilst sitting in the Maternity Assessment Unit (MAU) early on a July Sunday morning. So just to clarify, Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy aka Obstetric Cholestasis is a potentially serious but uncommon liver condition that affects 1 in 140 pregnant women. With ICP, the bile acids that usually flow from your liver dont flow properly and start to build up in your body instead. Heres my story.. ...

Alterations in Abcb4(-/-) mice, compared with wild-type mice, included deregulation of genes that control lipid synthesis, storage, and oxidation; decreased serum levels of cholesterol and phospholipids; and reduced hepatic long-chain fatty acyl-CoAs (LCA-CoA). Feeding Abcb4(-/-) mice the side chain-modified bile acid 24-norursodeoxycholic acid (norUDCA) reversed their liver injury and fibrosis, increased serum levels of lipids, lowered phospholipase and triglyceride hydrolase activities, and restored hepatic LCA-CoA and triglyceride levels. Additional genetic and nutritional studies indicated that lipid metabolism contributed to chronic cholestatic liver injury; crossing peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-?-deficient mice with Abcb4(-/-) mice (to create double knockouts) or placing Abcb4(-/-) mice on a high-fat diet protected against liver injury, with features similar to those involved in the response to norUDCA. Placing pregnant Abcb4(-/-) mice on high-fat diets prevented liver ...
