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)

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 ...

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 ...

Think that is fairly quick tbh at our hospital (when it was really bad last time it took a week! This time I am pushing everything as quick as) and its not like last time so if it is its only just starting. They are keeping a very close eye on me (most of the staff know me by name now!!) but I will hear tomorrow (or hopefully not!) I wish it had been same day but tbh if I hadnt had it last time then I wouldnt know anything at all was up as its minor and may just be normal itching- they did test me at 16 weeks too and that was clear ...
Oh my goodness I have never been so itchy in all my life! I have finally officially been diagnosed with PUPPPS after 4 weeks of insane itching & a
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 ...

Has anyone experienced intraheptic Cholestasis before ? I have an extreme itch that I cannot get to go away . No amount of itching or lotion or anything is helping . Ive been reading stories on the internet (I know , bad idea) about this and they all result in still birth . I have an appointment tomorrow but has anyone who has experienced this tell me differences between this and a regular itch ? I feel like crying because I cant stop itching
Dr. Wahl, perinatologist at Saint Francis Healthcare System, talks about cholestasis of pregnancy - including risks and treatment options.
GD/Cholestasis: So being my third pregnancy i was surprised to get GD but it wasnt as bad as i had thought and since my last two pregnancies ended in emergency c-sections this one was going to be a scheduled c-section and i was scheduled for July 7 and original due date was July 16th... But last week i was having extreme itchiness on feet and arms so i got sent to get blood work. ...
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 ...

The force added that an officer was assaulted but did not require hospital treatment.. A spokesperson for Jenkinss confirmed the incident and said the star had seen the old woman being attacked and had gone over to assist her, before falling victim herself.. It is not clear if Jenkins still performed at the service she was on her way to.. Jenkins recently told how she was hit with a potentially life-threatening liver condition while pregnant.. She said: "With my second pregnancy there was a little bit of a complication. I got a thing called Cholestasis, I had itchy skin and at first I thought it was just stretching.. But she went on: "Eventually I had a blood test and I found that my liver wasnt working properly which can have really serious effects.". Katherine was diagnosed with cholestasis, where bile flow is disrupted.. ...
My son was born two days ago... He was delivered at 36 weeks exactly, because of severe cholestasis of pregnancy. He was born viasection after a failed early medical induction that lasted 34 hours. He was 6 lbs 10.5 oz and 21 inches at birth... Big guy for a 36 weeker!!! Anyway... I started BFing immediately, while still in recovery from thesec after the 34 hours of labor, and he took to me beautifully, especially given that he was born at 36 weeks 0 days. They also had me start pumping after feelings to try to get supply up as quickly as possible. Well, by the end of the first 24 hours, he was feeding 15 minutes on each side every 2 hours. After each feed, I pumped for 20 minutes and averaged about 10 ml of colostrum. Today was even better. He is a hungry little guy!!! By the end of the 48 hour mark, he was feeding 20 minutes on each side and I am now pumping 30 ml/1 full ounce *after* a successful 40 minute feed!!! They just brought him back from a weg- in and said that he is already gaining
I know this is the biggest question above all. My itching didnt pass until recently. I feel way better last 2 days, still itching though. Even though I started to use my medication almost 10 days ago, It just gets better. I dont think medication helps you by itself. You also need to take control of your comfort and things you consume.. I stop eating salt and oily foods. Since liver cant pass through extra of these things to your bile, your blood gets all the extra unwanted thing like salt etc. I was like "It gonna be ok if I only put a pinch of salt to my eggs in the morning". No, Its not! You should cut right away. Same thing for oily foods. I started to eat thing like salad mostly.. Second, the first thing I did was an oatmeal bath. It doesnt work for me that much. Instead, I keep washing my arms and legs with cold water in the middle of the night without wiping them go to bed. That helps you at least 15-20 min. If you are exhausted and have too much sleep you might get lucky and sleep in ...
When I hit about 30 weeks in my pregnancy, I started to itch. Having had a PUPPP rash for the last 3 pregnancies, I was used to my belly itching uncontrollably, but this was a totally different beast. It started as a mild itch that really only affected me at night. It was like a weird tickly sensation all over my body. The odd thing about this itch is that it never showed any signs on my skin. No rash, no redness, no hives of any kind and it was all encompassing. Every part of my body itched. At first, I figured it was dry skin and slathered myself with a thick lotion every night before I went to bed with hopes it would help. When it didnt, I tried benedryl. When that didnt help, I mostly just whined to Michael who Im fairly sure thought I was just losing my mind ...

My doctor told me that sometimes pregnant women get itchy. Its normal. That seemed like a banal description of my experience, so I scoured the Internet, eventually finding a website called itchymoms.com. There I learned about a condition called cholestasis of the liver, in which bile leaks into your bloodstream, slowly poisoning your blood and causing a terrible itch. More important, it can immediately kill babies. Continue. ...
Cholestasis… pronounced kō-lə-ˈstā-səs. It just SOUNDS awful. And it is. The itching …. oh the ITCHING! And its worse on the palms of your hands and the bottoms of your feet. You see, you itch because of your blood, not your skin, so no amount of itching will relieve it. Oatmeal baths, lotions, and even anti-itching medications - useless and the medication can even be harmful so dont do it. If youve ever experienced it you know I could go on and on about it and STILL not do it justice. Continue Reading →. ...
5:00 P.M. The contractions are now back to back with no breaks. All my friends who had given birth told me that when their contractions were back to back, they made the most progress. I also learned in the Bradley class that right before you give birth you go through a stage called "Transition" and I was sure this was it, so I begged my midwife to check my progress. I could tell she didnt want to, but I had to know, so she checked and I was only 4cm dilated. I was like, THATS IT! GIVE ME AN EPIDURAL!!! I need to rest and I couldnt take it anymore. It was evident that this was going to be a very long and hard labor and two hours of sleep was not going to cut it. The Pitocin was not working and my body was holding on to this baby. Everyone tried to talk me out of the epidural because that was the instruction I gave on my birth plan, but my birthing plan was already altered because I was on Pitocin and my desire for a natural birth was no longer possible. Given the fact that I had Cholestasis we ...
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 ...
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 ...

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 ...
Background: Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) is characterised by troublesome maternal pruritus, raised serum bile acid levels and increased fetal risk. Mutations of the ABCB4 gene encoding the hepatobiliary phospholipid transporter have been identified in a small proportion of patients with cholestasis of pregnancy. In a recent prospective study on 693 patients with cholestasis of pregnancy, a cut-off level for serum bile acid (⩾40 μmol/l) was determined for increased risk of fetal complications.. Objectives: To investigate whether common combinations of polymorphic alleles (haplotypes) of the genes encoding the hepatobiliary ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters for phospholipids (ABCB4) and bile acids (ABCB11) were associated with this severe form of cholestasis of pregnancy.. Methods: For genetic analysis, 52 women with bile acid levels ⩾40 μmol/l (called cases) and 52 unaffected women (called controls) matched for age, parity and geographical residence were studied. Gene ...
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. World experts cover a broad spectrum of topics from genetic studies to endoscopy and from medical treatment to liver transplantation.Acalovschi, M. is the author of Hepatobiliary Diseases Cholestasis and Gallstone with ISBN 9780792387701 and ISBN ...

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 - Malignant biliary obstruction. T2 - A comparison of cost for a use of metal or plastic stent for palliation in Japanese health care system. AU - Fukami, Norio. AU - Inoue, Haruhiro. AU - Kudo, Shin Ei. PY - 2004/11/19. Y1 - 2004/11/19. N2 - Endoscopic treatment with endoprosthesis for obstructive jaundice is a well-accepted method for palliation of obstructive jaundice and its associated symptoms. Yet, there is no consensus whether a plastic stent or metal stent to be used. The longer patency period with metal stent is a definite advantage but its high cost limits its routine use. The best use of metal stent is accomplished with consideration of patients predicted prognosis and a medical cost in Japan. We used a simulated case scenario to calculate a cost for metal stent and non-metallic stent. Metal stent use would cost about 437 000 yen per patient at 6 months compared with 276 000-329 000 for non-metallic stents, and thus metal stent use appears to be more costly in current ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...
A retrospective case-control study of 21,008 women in Finland has found that those with intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP), an itchy skin condition when bile gets backed up in the liver, are significantly more likely to suffer other liver diseases later in life.

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}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry ...

Neoadjuvant therapy (Chemotherapy and Radiation) is treatment that is provided before primary therapy. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy may be performed to help shrink a tumor that is inoperable in its current state, so that it can be surgically removed.. Patient education: Biliary Metal Stents and Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA). The WallFlexTM Biliary RX metal stent is FDA cleared for use in the treatment of biliary strictures (abnormal narrowing of the bile duct) produced by malignant neoplasms (cancerous cells) and relief of malignant biliary obstruction (blockage) prior to surgery. WallFlex Biliary RX metal stents may be an option for pancreatic cancer patients who are candidates for treatment to help relieve malignant biliary obstruction while they receive neoadjuvant chemotherapy in preparation for surgery. Additionally, RFA therapy can be used with stenting to perform endoscopic biliary drainage or decompression (opening the duct) for symptom relief and may prolong patency (unobstruction) of the ...
AIM: To analyze 1-year liver injury burden in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients. METHODS: During a 6-mo inclusion period, consecutive IBD cases having a control visit at IBD center were included. Basic demographics, IBD phenotype and IBD treatment were recorded on entry. Aminotransferase (AT) activities of ALT, AST, ALP and gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT) were measured at baseline, 3 mo prior to study entry and prospectively every 3 mo for 1 year. Liver injury patterns were predefined as: Grade 1 in ALT 1-3 × upper limit of normal (ULN), grade 2 in ALT , 3 × ULN, hepatocellular injury in ALT , 2 × ULN, cholestatic injury in simultaneous GGT and ALP elevation , ULN ...
Previous studies suggest that LPS-induced cholestasis is mediated by impairment of the hepatobiliary transporting systems involved in the formation of bile. To date, several genes encoding hepatobiliary transporters localized to sinusoidal or canalicular membranes of hepatocytes have been cloned. It has been shown that LPS-mediated repression of hepatobiliary transporters is principally the result of down-regulation of gene expression (Green et al., 1996; Moseley et al., 1996; Trauner et al., 1997, 1998; Vos et al., 1998). Consistent with these published studies on other transporters, the present data demonstrate that LPS treatment also produces a time-dependent decrease in mouse Oatp4 mRNA levels (Fig. 1). Oatp4 mRNA levels return to control values after a single injection of LPS, indicating that the effects of LPS on Oatp4 mRNA are reversible in this model. Among the rat Oatps, Oatp4 mRNA levels have been shown to be relatively high in liver (Li et al., 2002). Oatp4 mediates Na+-independent ...
Creams, such as aqueous cream with menthol, are safe to use in pregnancy and can provide some relief from itching.. There are some medicines, such as ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA), that help reduce bile acids and ease itching.. UDCA is considered safe to take in pregnancy, although it is prescribed on what is known as an informed consent basis as it has not been properly tested in pregnancy. You may also be offered a vitamin K supplement. This is because ICP can affect your absorption of vitamin K, which is important for healthy blood clotting.. Most experts on ICP only prescribe vitamin K if the mother-to-be reports pale stools, has a known blood clotting problem, or has very severe ICP from early in pregnancy.. If you are diagnosed with ICP, your midwife and doctor will discuss your health and your options with you.. Further information. The Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists (RCOG) has more information about obstetric cholestasis, including what it means for you and your baby, ...
Rat and mous. e Mrp3 share 88% and 89% similarity with human MRP3 at the protein level, respectively. Mrp3 is localized at the basolateral site of renal tubule cells, enterocytes, cholangiocytes and hepatocytes [1, 2]. Although basal expression of rat Mrp3 is low in the liver, it is induced in cholestatic conditions [3], Mrp2 deficiency [4, 5], and by certain drugs and microsomal enzyme inducers [6-10]. It is interesting to note, however, that levels of Mrp2 and Mrp3 are not always inversely correlated, as physiological Mrp2 deficiency in pregnant rats or downregulation of Mrp2 in obese Zucker rats do not cause upregulation of Mrp3 [11, 12]. Unlike in rat liver, Mrp3 has a constitutively high expression in mouse hepatocytes [13] which can be further induced with chemicals [14] but not by Mrp2 deficiency [15]. Within the kidney, MRP3 can be found in different cell types in humans versus rats. While rat Mrp3 is expressed in both the proximal and distal tubules [2], human MRP3 protein was ...
I am not going to lie, moving away from my home, my family, was hard. Maybe if I could drive it wouldnt have been so hard - but I was also excited having my own place and paying my own way even though I did pay rent and council tax at my Dads too. My partner works 40+ hours a week and up until the end of December, I was going to work too. After December it was nice staying home with Mia but I suddenly got quite fed up because I wasnt sleeping due to the condition I had when I was pregnant (Obstetric Cholestasis) and Mia was going through her terrible two stage. I fell into depression from 30+ weeks but that was no surprise since I was absolutely shattered getting no sleep, still having to wake up to Mia each morning, scared because I wasnt quite sure how I could share my love between two kids, struggling with severe back pain and the itching caused by OC. I struggled badly to keep on top of the house work and I stopped going out because I nearly had a break down in a local shop because Mia ...

When I was seeing Dr. C during Avas pregnancy, I had to fight and fight and fight to get diagnosed and put on Actigall. I called him numerous times during Christmas break, even calling on Christmas Day to state that I would be going to the hospital for testing. I was in complete misery, wasnt sleeping, itching 24/7 and I had a doctor who was skeptical of it being cholestasis because its such a rare condition. When I finally got in to his office after having tests done at the hospital, I was armed with print-out after print-out from the internet in case I had to basically be my own lawyer and fight for my rights as a patient. Thankfully he finally relented at that appointment and put me on the medication, and from there it was smooth sailing - I was carefully monitored the rest of the pregnancy and followed standard protocol for cholestasis: Actigall, follow-up blood work to check my bile acid levels, bi-weekly NSTs, and a 37 week induction date - which thankfully was unnecessary since Ava ...

So back to waiting for the results… they came back and not only did they not increase, they went DOWN into "normal" levels!! It was a miracle!! We kept a really close eye on everything and I stayed extremely consistent with the herbal regimen that my midwives had me on and just continued with the original plan of staying pregnant until the baby decides to come.. With my first, I went to 42 weeks and 2 days so we knew it was a strong possibility that I would go past 42 weeks. In Colorado, where I gave birth to my first 3 children, you can have a homebirth after 42 weeks if you have an OBs "green light" as I like to call it. I saw the amazing Dr. Johnny Johnson. He said I was very healthy overall and he had no problem with me having a homebirth. I did have my membranes stripped at that appointment and had the same thing done at 42 weeks with my first son.. The woman who did the ultrasound told me that the machine didnt measure above 9 lbs 6 oz and she was confident that my son was larger than ...

To say I was ready to not be pregnant anymore would be an understatement. A LOT has happened since my last bump-date!! I ended up getting the surgery to remove the big kidney stone from my left side. Surgery was successful and after a night in the hospital, I was discharged with a stent in me. That damn stent was so uncomfortable and I could not wait to get it removed the following week. Thankfully, after the stent was removed I started to feel much better. I was so happy to not be in pain, but I was still itching - and not just minor itching - my entire body and mainly at night. Annoying! I mentioned the itching to the maternal fetal specialist, so she had some blood drawn. Sure enough, I was diagnosed with Cholestasis - which is a liver disease while youre pregnant. I was put on antibiotics to help my acid levels and the medicine ended up working off and on. I had to get ultrasounds, blood work, and stress tests done weekly to make sure baby girl was doing well. She was perfect the entire ...

A paraneoplastic syndrome can often present as the first manifestation of an underlying malignancy. We report a patient who presented with cholestatic jaundice as a paraneoplastic syndrome from his newly diagnosed metastatic prostate cancer. He received initial treatment with androgen deprivation therapy followed by six cycles of docetaxel resulting in resolution of his cholestatic process, normalization of liver enzyme levels, and excellent biochemical and radiographic response. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of metastatic prostate cancer with cholestatic jaundice as a paraneoplastic phenomenon to be safely treated with androgen deprivation therapy and upfront docetaxel, reflecting the latest shift in the treatment of metastatic prostate cancer.

Current practice is to monitor prothrombin time as an indicator of vitamin K sufficiency in cholestatic liver disease. Since prothrombin time is a surrogate marker, it may underestimate the actual prevalence of vitamin K deficiency in this population. This study investigates the frequency of vitamin K deficiency among a convenience sample of children and adults with cholestatic liver disease by determining plasma levels of protein induced in vitamin K absence II (PIVKA-II), and assesses the relationship between PIVKA-II levels and markers of cholestasis, measured prothrombin time, and vitamin A, E and 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels. Methods: Subjects with cholestatic liver disease were recruited from the Cincinnati referral area. Subjects with decompensated cirrhosis, malignancy, concurrent disease that results in fat malabsorption and AIDS were excluded. All subjects had blood collected for liver function tests, prothrombin time (PT), INR, bile acids, 25-hydroxyvitamin D, vitamin A, vitamin E and ...
Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) is a chronic cholestatic liver disease that eventually leads to end-stage liver failure and death unless liver transplantation (LT) is performed. Ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) administered orally at the daily dose of 13-15 mg/kg is currently the only drug approved for the treatment of PBC. UDCA consistently improves biochemical liver tests, prolongs survival without LT, and delays histological progression as well as the occurrence of portal hypertension. However, a significant proportion (40%) of patients treated with UDCA shows an incomplete biochemical response and remains at high risk of death or LT. The development of new treatments in combination with UDCA is therefore needed. Several candidates exist among which is Bezafibrate. Bezafibrate belongs to the fibrates pharmacological class, which has been developed 4 decades ago for the treatment of mixed hyperlipidaemia. Bezafibrate is cheap, widely available and well tolerated. There is now a substantial body of ...

AU - Malasky, Charlotte. PY - 2004/7. Y1 - 2004/7. N2 - A 45-year-old woman with advanced gastric carcinoma presented with obstructive jaundice. Percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography (PTC) revealed erosive disruption of the extrahepatic bile ducts by a cavitating metastasis in the porta hepatis, as well as a biliary-duodenal fistula. External-internal biliary drainage via the fistula was plagued by recurrent drain occlusion by necrotic debris. This was ultimately alleviated by successful catheterization of the distal common bile duct (CBD) through the cavity, and linking the common hepatic duct (CHD) and CBD with a Wallstent, across the cavity. This succeeded in improving internal biliary drainage and isolating the exfoliating debris of the cavity from the bile ducts.. AB - A 45-year-old woman ...
Intrahepatic cholestasis represents 20%-40%of drug-induced injuries from which a large proportion remains unpredictable. We aimed to investigate mechanisms underlying drug-induced cholestasis and improve its early detection using human HepaRG cells and a set of 12 cholestatic drugs and six noncholestatic drugs. In this study, we analyzed bile canaliculi dynamics, Rho kinase (ROCK)/myosin light chain kinase (MLCK) pathway implication, efflux inhibition of taurocholate [a predominant bile salt export pump (BSEP) substrate], and expression of the major canalicular and basolateral bile acid transporters. We demonstrated that 12 cholestatic drugs classified on the basis of reported clinical findings caused disturbances of both bile canaliculi dynamics, characterized by either dilatation or constriction, and alteration of the ROCK/MLCK signaling pathway, whereas noncholestatic compounds, by contrast, had no effect.
