Structural and functional changes in acute liver injury. (1/4731)

Carbon tetrachloride produces liver cell injury in a variety of animal species. The first structurally recognizable changes occur in the endoplasmic reticulum, with alteration in ribosome-membrane interactions. Later there is an increase in intracellular fat, and the formation of tangled nets of the ergastoplasm. At no time are there changes in mitochondria or single membrane limited bodies in cells with intact plasmalemma, although a relative increase in cell sap may appear. In dead cells (those with plasmalemma discontinuties) crystalline deposits of calcium phosphatase may be noted. Functional changes are related to the endoplasmic reticulum and the plasma membrane. An early decrease in protein synthesis takes place; an accumulation of neutral lipid is related to this change. Later alterations in the ergastoplasmic functions (e.g., mixed function oxidation) occurs. Carbon tetrachloride is not the active agent; rather, a product of its metabolism, probably the CC1, free radical, is. The mechanisms of injury include macromolecular adduction and peroxide propagation. A third possibility includes a cascade effect with the production of secondary and tertiary products, also toxic in nature, with the ability to produce more widespread damage to intracellular structures.  (+info)

Various forms of chemically induced liver injury and their detection by diagnostic procedures. (2/4731)

A large number of chemical agents, administered for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes, can produce various types of hepatic injury by several mechanisms. Some agents are intrinsically hepatotoxic, and others produce hepatic injury only in the rare, uniquely susceptible individual. Idiosyncrasy of the host is the mechanism for most types of drug-induced hepatic injury. It may reflect allergy to the drug or a metabolic aberation of the host permitting the accumulation of hepatotoxic metabolites. The syndromes of hepatic disease produced by drugs have been classified hepatocellular, hepatocanalicular, mixed and canalicular. Measurement of serum enzyme activities has provided a powerful tool for studies of hepatotoxicity. Their measurement requires awareness of relative specificity, knowledge of the mechanisms involved, and knowledge of the relationship between known hepatotoxic states and elevated enzyme activities.  (+info)

Quantitative aspects in the assessment of liver injury. (3/4731)

Liver function data are usually difficult to use in their original form when one wishes to compare the hepatotoxic properties of several chemical substances. However, procedures are available for the conversion of liver function data into quantal responses. These permit the elaboration of dose-response lines for the substances in question, the calculation of median effective doses and the statistical analysis of differences in liver-damaging potency. These same procedures can be utilized for estimating the relative hazard involved if one compares the liver-damaging potency to the median effective dose for some other pharmacologie parameter. Alterations in hepatic triglycerides, lipid peroxidation, and the activities of various hepatic enzymes can also be quantitiated in a dose-related manner. This permits the selection of equitoxic doses required for certain comparative studies and the selection of doses in chemical interaction studies. The quantitative problems involved in low-frequency adverse reactions and the difficulty these present in the detection of liver injury in laboratory animals are discussed.  (+info)

Assessment of hepatotoxic potential. (4/4731)

Philosophic concepts and pragmatic approaches toward improved understanding of the effect of drugs in the hepatocyte are reviewed. No set pattern of studies is advocated but rather observations are encouraged within the framework of studies that provide for varied exposure of the hepatocyte. Clinical usage should be imitated to provide earliest possible indications of toxicity in man. The need for definitive characterization through utilization of appropriate methodology derived from cross-fertilization of related disciplines is stressed. Both minimal and maximal dose effects should be established. Selected use of electron microscopy has become essential for characterizing responses of the liver to injury. The advantages of the toluidine blue-stained Epon "thick" sections are emphasized. Such observations are used to implement the utility of serial biopsies from the beagle dog prior to and during long-term study of potential hepatic injury. Examples of the critical effects of drug concentration within the hepatocyte are presented.  (+info)

Complement fixing hepatitis B core antigen immune complexes in the liver of patients with HBs antigen positive chronic disease. (5/4731)

One hundred and fifty-two biopsies from serologically HBsAg positive and negative patients with liver disease were studied in immunofluorescence: for the presence of the surface (HBs) and the core (HBc) antigenic determinants foeterminants of the hepatitis B virus, of immunoglobulins and complement (C) deposits, and for the capacity to fix human C. Circumstantial evidence is presented suggesting that HBc immune-complexes are a relevant feature in the establishment and progression of chronic HBSAg liver disease. C fixation by liver cells was shown in all HBC positive patients with chronic hepatitis; an active form was present in every case, except two with a persistent hepatitis, an inverse ratio of HBc to C binding fluorescence being noted between active chronic hepatitis and cirrhotic patients. HBc without C fixation was observed in only three patients in the incubation phase of infectious hepatitis. IgG deposits were often found in HBc containing, C fixing nuclei. No C binding or IgG deposits were observed in acute self-limited type B hepatitis, in serologically positive patients with normal liver or minimal histological lesions, with and without HBs cytoplasmic fluorescence in their biopsy, or in serologically negative individuals.  (+info)

Study of an epidemic of venoocclusive disease in India. (6/4731)

Twenty-five cases of rapidly developing ascites occurring in an epidemic form were observed in a tribal district in Central India during August 1972-May 1973. Eleven of the patients died. Six patients were brought to hospital and studied for periods of two to 17 months. Necropsy was performed on one patient who died. The clinical features suggested an outflow tract obstruction such as a Budd-Chiari-like syndrome or venoocclusive disease. Radiographic and haemodynamic studies demonstrated a combination of post and perisinusoidal blocks. Liver dysfunction was indicated by the presence of a marked bromsulphthalein retention and mild to moderate hypoalbuminaemia. Histological examination of the liver biopsies showed changes that ranged from centrizonal haemorrhagic necrosis to an extensive centrilobular fibrosis associated with central vein occlusion. The disease was apparently caused by a food toxin, and the possible nature of this is discussed.  (+info)

Risk of major liver resection in patients with underlying chronic liver disease: a reappraisal. (7/4731)

OBJECTIVE: To explore the relation of patient age, status of liver parenchyma, presence of markers of active hepatitis, and blood loss to subsequent death and complications in patients undergoing a similar major hepatectomy for the same disease using a standardized technique. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Major liver resection carries a high risk of postoperative liver failure in patients with chronic liver disease. However, this underlying liver disease may comprise a wide range of pathologic changes that have, in the past, not been well defined. METHODS: The nontumorous liver of 55 patients undergoing a right hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma was classified according to a semiquantitative grading of fibrosis. The authors analyzed the influence of this pathologic feature and of other preoperative variables on the risk of postoperative death and complications. RESULTS: Serum bilirubin and prothrombin time increased on postoperative day 1, and their speed of recovery was influenced by the severity of fibrosis. Incidence of death from liver failure was 32% in patients with grade 4 fibrosis (cirrhosis) and 0% in patients with grade 0 to 3 fibrosis. The preoperative serum aspartate transaminase (ASAT) level ranged from 68 to 207 IU/l in patients with cirrhosis who died, compared with 20 to 62 in patients with cirrhosis who survived. CONCLUSION: A major liver resection such as a right hepatectomy may be safely performed in patients with underlying liver disease, provided no additional risk factors are present. Patients with a preoperative increase in ASAT should undergo a liver biopsy to rule out the presence of grade 4 fibrosis, which should contraindicate this resection.  (+info)

Predicting bone loss following orthotopic liver transplantation. (8/4731)

BACKGROUND: Hepatic osteodystrophy occurs in the majority of patients with advanced chronic liver disease with the abnormalities in bone metabolism accelerating following orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). AIMS: To examine changes in bone mineral density (BMD) following OLT and to investigate factors that lead to bone loss. METHODS: Twelve patients had BMD (at both the lumbar spine (LS) and femoral neck (FN)) and biochemical markers measured preoperatively and for 24 months following OLT. RESULTS: BMD was low in 75% of patients prior to OLT and decreased significantly from baseline at the LS at three months and the FN at six months. BMD began to increase thereafter at both sites, approaching baseline values at the LS by 12 months. Bone formation markers, osteocalcin and procollagen type I carboxy propeptide, decreased immediately post-OLT, with a concomitant increase seen in the resorption markers pyridinoline and deoxypyridinoline. This resulted in a negative uncoupling index early post-OLT, that rebounded to positive values after six months. There was a significant correlation between the change in the uncoupling index between six and three months which preceded the increase in BMD at 12 months. The decrease in BMD recorded early post-OLT correlated with vitamin D levels at three months. CONCLUSIONS: Results suggest that increased resorption and inadequate formation are the major contributors to additional bone loss following OLT. Non-invasive biochemical markers precede later changes in BMD in this patient group following OLT and may have a role in investigating and planning intervention strategies to prevent bone loss in future studies.  (+info)

Amenorrhoea is common in women with non-alcoholic chronic liver disease, but little is known about its causes or consequences. We investigated 12 young women with non-alcoholic chronic liver disease and amenorrhoea and compared them with 11 healthy age matched controls studied in the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle. None of the patients had raised serum concentrations of follicle stimulating hormone suggesting primary gonadal failure, but the variance in serum concentrations of testosterone, oestradiol, prolactin, and luteinising hormone were significantly greater in chronic liver disease patients than control subjects (p less than 0.01). Seven of the 12 chronic liver disease patients had low serum luteinising hormone concentrations, and compared with controls these patients also had significantly reduced median values of oestradiol (64 pmol/l), testosterone (1.1 nmol/l), and follicle stimulating hormone, and were significantly underweight as assessed by skinfold thickness measurements ...
Chronic liver disease in the clinical context is a disease process of the liver that involves a process of progressive destruction and regeneration of the liver parenchyma leading to fibrosis and cirrhosis. Chronic liver disease refers to disease of the liver which lasts over a period of six months. It consists of a wide range of liver pathologies which include inflammation (chronic hepatitis), liver cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. The entire spectrum need not be experienced. Signs of chronic liver disease detectable on clinical examination can be divided into those that are associated with the diagnosis of chronic liver disease, associated with decompensation and associated with the cause.

In this study, we found that the prevalence of anti-HBc is almost 50% in patients with HCV related chronic liver disease, which is significantly higher than that reported in healthy blood donors at a blood centre in Japan.25 It is also higher than that observed in our control group without liver disease (12.2%). Several previous reports have already shown a high prevalence of anti-HBV serological markers in HCV infected patients.5-9 However, most of the previous reports have mainly focused on patients with HCC, and moreover have not assessed the anti-HBV serological status in relation to age. It is known that the prevalence of anti-HBV serological markers increases with age. Moreover, the mean age of patients with HCV related chronic liver disease is generally high,23 ,24 raising the possibility that the high prevalence of anti-HBV markers in HCV related chronic liver disease found in this study merely reflects their advanced age. Indeed, our patients with anti-HCV are older than the blood ...
The incidence of several liver diseases, especially non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), has increased globally over the last few decades. During the same time, overweight, defined as a BMI above 25, and obesity, defined as a BMI above 30, have increased in both Europe and the USA, as well as globally. It has been estimated that if current trends continue, there will be more than two billion overweight and over one billion obese individuals worldwide by 2030. Obesity in adults has been linked to an increased risk for liver-related death or hospitalization in individuals both with and without liver disease, as well as a higher risk for liver cell cancer. In addition, overweight and obesity are associated with a worse prognosis in several liver diseases, such as NAFLD, hepatitis B and C, and alcoholic liver disease ...

Alcoholic liver disease is the main cause of illness and deaths in United States of America. This disease can be found normally in the people who abuse alcohol since long time. There are different stages involved in these liver disease which slowly ruins the livers performance and finally damages it completely. The more longer alcohol is consumed and in more quantities, the greater will be the risk of developing liver diseases.. The first stage of liver damage is swelling and inflammation which can be termed as hepatitis. Later it can lead to scaring and results in cirrhosis of liver, which is the final stage of liver disease. Women have high chances of getting liver diseases than men. In some cases it may be hereditary, if you take the habit as hereditary. It may not happen in all the heavy drinkers. It varies from person to person depending upon the food and the nutrients they are taking. Poor nutrition makes the liver problem even worse.. In these liver diseases, symptoms may not be seen ...

With improved survival following the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), liver disease has become a leading cause of death among HIV-infected persons in Western cohorts, primarily affecting those co-infected with hepatitis B or C viruses (HBV, HCV). However, data are sparse on liver disease in HIV-infected populations from Uganda and other African nations, where the etiologies of liver disease are broader and include aflatoxin, schistosomiasis and other infectious and environmental agents. Our previous noninvasive study in rural, Rakai, Uganda indicates that the prevalence of significant liver fibrosis is high among HIV-infected individuals (17%) and is 50% higher than in HIV-uninfected persons, although the prevalence of viral hepatitis B co-infection is low (5%). The study presented here is a biopsy-based study that follows up on these results with the objectives of defining the etiology of liver disease and describing the mechanisms of HIV-accelerated liver fibrosis ...

According to a study published last week, fatalities from liver disease are on the rise, and young adults have been hit the hardest.
TUESDAY, March 21, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Overweight and obese young men are at increased risk for serious liver disease or liver cancer later in life, and those with diabetes have an even higher risk, a new study warns.. Efforts to reduce obesity, should be implemented from an early age to reduce the future burden of severe liver disease on individuals and society, say Swedish researchers led by Hannes Hagstrom, of the Center for Digestive Diseases at Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm.. A liver specialist in the United States agreed.. This should be a wake-up call for young men to take their weight seriously and take steps to stay in shape to hopefully prevent liver disease, diabetes and liver cancer in the future, said Dr. David Bernstein, chief of hepatology at Northwell Health in Manhasset, NY.. He explained that obesity is linked to the development of a condition called non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), where fat starts to be deposited in the organ. In turn, NAFLD ...

People with chronic liver disease are at particular risk of severe illness if they catch flu, and are 48 times more likely to die if they develop flu than healthy individuals. If you are living with hepatitis C or liver disease, protect yourself with a free flu vaccine provided as part of the NHSs Stay Well this Winter campaign.. For most healthy people, flu is an unpleasant but usually self-limiting disease with a short recovery. However, people with an underlying health condition are far more likely than a healthy adult to be admitted to hospital with complications. Liver disease can affect the immune system, making it more difficult to fight off infection. Flu can also make the effects of an existing condition worse and makes complications like pneumonia more likely.. Flu vaccination remains the best protection we have against the influenza virus. Last year only 42.6% of those with chronic liver disease had the flu vaccination, and the NHS is emphasising it the importance of as many people ...

New data released today at the largest conference for liver clinicians reveals that around 5,200 people die from liver disease in hospital in England each year. Of these, 30% of those have not had an admission in the year before death. On admission to hospital time is of the essence in saving these seriously ill patients. 1 in 4 of those who die do not survive more than 3 days and 43% do not survive a week.. These are people with advanced liver disease and many of their lives could have been saved if they had been diagnosed earlier in primary or secondary care and had been given advice on risk factors like alcohol and management of their liver disease.. The analysis is being presented at the British Association of Liver Disease annual conference in Glasgow. The data also reveals that these deaths occur in relatively young people. 60% of these patients are under 64 years of age and that one in five are under the age of 50.. Liver disease has increased by 400% since 1970 and its the biggest cause ...

Liver disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in dogs and cats, but non-invasive tests such as ALT lack sensitivity and specificity. This article reports on a veterinary/human medicine collaboration to identify a better alternative.. Chronic liver disease occurs commonly in dogs and can cause severe clinical signs such as hepatic encephalopathy, ascites, loss of interest in food, weight loss and jaundice (1). Acute hepatitis is also well recognised in dogs and can occur secondary to numerous disease processes including drug reactions and infections (2, 3). Definitive treatment of both acute and chronic liver diseases in dogs is often challenging and is frequently associated with poor outcomes (4). For example, we recently reported that dogs with chronic hepatitis had a median survival time of just 38 days (4). A significant cause of the poor outcomes in dogs with liver disorders is the delay in disease detection; due to the limitations of current tests, liver pathology is often well ...

A study at University of California San Diego School of Medicine claims that suppression of stomach (gastric) acid by drugs alters specific gut bacteria, promoting liver injury and progression of three types of chronic liver disease. Nearly 10% people use proton pump inhibitor (PPI) drug to relieve the symptoms of heartburn and acid reflux; this percentage being seven times higher for those suffering from a chronic liver disease. The number of people suffering from chronic liver disease is ...
AIM Serum Golgi protein 73 (sGP73) is a novel biomarker for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, there are few reports on the pattern of GP73 expression in the progression of benign liver diseases to precancerous lesions and HCC. This study aimed to investigate GP73 expression and its correlation with clinicopathological parameters. METHODS Tissue GP73 (tGP73) levels were detected in specimens of group A (n = 186) including HCC, peritumoral tissue (PTL), high/low-grade hepatic atypical hyperplasia (AH), chronic hepatitis B (CHB) and normal controls (NC) by immunohistochemistry, and GP73 expression in group B (n = 159) and group C (n = 16) were detected by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction and western blot, respectively. sGP73 levels were detected in subjects of group D (n = 287) by enzyme-linked immunoassay. RESULTS GP73 expression increased gradually from NC, CHB, PTL to high-grade AH and HCC at both protein and mRNA levels (P | 0.05), while sGP73 in the HCC group was lower than
Canine liver disease is one of the top five causes of possible death for a dog. The liver removes waste and toxins from the blood as well as produces bile to aid digestion. When the liver is compromised, the health of your dog is in jeopardy. Dogs with liver disease may show any number of signs and symptoms. A few symptoms, such as jaundice, are specific to liver disease and other liver problems. ...
April 30, 2017 Doctors continually strive to get the best possible information available while striking a balance between good, reliable data which is essential for accurate diagnoses, and patient comfort and safety. Enter liver elastography.. For years, a liver biopsy was the most reliable way to assess the status of patients with chronic liver disease.. Dr. Scott King, a radiologist at Inland Imaging, explains the background, When someone has chronic liver disease, most commonly Hepatitis C, Hepatitis B, and alcohol abuse, the chronic inflammation eventually results in liver scarring. When this scarring, or fibrosis, becomes severe, the risk of complications of chronic liver disease, including liver cancer, increases dramatically.. Liver biopsy can determine the degree of liver fibrosis. There are potential medical complications with biopsy, however, not to mention other inconveniences. Patients may experience pain, must undergo sedation, require up to a day of recovery time, and need to ...
The negative effects of obesity on overall health have been well-established along with the increasing rates throughout both the U.S. and internationally. Obesity as a comorbidity in liver disease can affect progression of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and compound alcohol-related liver complications. Recent studies have also shown that obesity in liver disease may have a more complex
Although many different pathogenic agents and processes can affect the liver (Table 14-1), they are generally manifested in individual patients in a limited number of ways that can be assessed by evaluating some key parameters. Liver disease can be acute or chronic, focal or diffuse, mild or severe, and reversible or irreversible. Most cases of acute liver disease (eg, caused by viral hepatitis) are so mild that they never come to medical attention. Transient symptoms of fatigue, loss of appetite, and nausea are often ascribed to other causes (eg, flu), and minor biochemical abnormalities referable to the liver that would be identified in blood studies are not discovered. The patient recovers without any lasting medical consequences. In other cases of acute liver injury, symptoms and signs are severe enough to call for medical attention. The entire range of liver functions may be affected or only a few, as is the case with liver injury resulting from certain drugs that cause isolated impairment ...

HCV infection is the most common chronic bloodborne infection in the United States. Data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NAHANES III), conducted during 1988-1994, indicate an estimated 3.9 million (1.8%) Americans are infected with HCV. Most people are asymptomatic and may not be aware of their infection. They are a source of transmission to others and are at risk for chronic liver disease or other HCV-related chronic diseases during the first two or more decades after initial infection. Population-based studies indicate that 40% of chronic liver disease is HCV-related. Chronic liver disease is the 11th leading cause of death in Washoe County in 2002. Most HCV-infected persons are 30-49 years of age. The number of deaths attributable to HCV-related chronic liver disease could increase substantially during the next 10-20 years as these persons reach ages at which complications from chronic liver disease typically occur. On May 1, 2002, the Washoe District Health ...
The Royal College of GPs has announced today that Liver disease will be a clinical priority starting this year and running until 2019. During this period, the College will be supporting GPs and healthcare professionals in delivering quality care to patients suffering from this disease.. Liver disease has been announced as a clinical priority for the Royal College of GPs, as part of a programme of work running from 2016-2019 aiming to support GPs and primary care professionals in identifying and delivering care to patients with liver disease.. Liver disease is the third most common cause of premature death in the UK, with some of the highest rates in Western Europe, and mortality rates increasing 400% since 1970. It is also a disease that affects the poorest and most vulnerable in society most, making it a major issue in efforts to tackle health inequalities. Vanessa Hebditch, Director of Communications and Policy at the British Liver Trust, said:. ...
The prevalence of liver disease is increasing. Cirrhosis, the terminal pathology of most liver diseases, has a general population incidence as high as 5% in some autopsy series. It is a major cause of death in men in their fourth and fifth decades of life, and mortality rates are increasing. Ten percent of the patients with liver disease undergo operative procedures during the final 2 years of their lives. The liver has remarkable functional reserve, and thus overt manifestations of hepatic disease are often absent until extensive damage has occurred. When patients with little hepatic reserve come to the operating room, effects from anesthesia and the surgical procedure can precipitate hepatic decompensation and frank hepatic failure. ...

Based on the latest research, Skinny Liver is an authoritative, easy-to-follow guide not just for your liver, but for your whole body. The liver is the seat of our overall health and wellness and the health of nearly every organ is intimately connected with our liver. A healthy liver is essential to a fully functioning body, but our modern sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy eating habits can truly damage the liver--and damage our health overall. A silent health crisis is impacting one-third of the American population---nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Because its symptoms often dont manifest until the liver is seriously compromised, many people are not aware that they are at risk. Did you know that if you have fatty liver disease, you are more likely to develop cardiovascular disease (heart attack and stroke), and potentially several devastating conditions such as liver cirrhosis and liver cancer? Did you know that fat is as dangerous as alcohol to the liver? Award-winning dietitian ...
Recent evidence indicates that the intestinal microflora plays a critical role in physiological and pathological processes; in particular, it is now considered a key determinant of immune pathologies and metabolic syndrome. Receiving the majority of its blood supply from the portal vein, the liver represents the first line of defense against food antigens, toxins, microbial-derived products, and microorganisms. Moreover, the liver is critically positioned to integrate metabolic outcomes with nutrient intake. To accomplish this function, the liver is equipped with a broad array of immune networks. It is now evident that, during pathological processes associated with obesity, alcohol-intake, or autoimmunity, the interaction between these immune cell populations and the intestinal microbiota promotes chronic liver disease progression and therefore they represent a novel therapeutic target. Herein, we highlight recent studies that have shed new light on the relationship between the microbiome, the ...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Somatostatin analogues reduce liver volumes in polycystic liver disease. However, patients show considerable variability in treatment responses. Our aim was to identify specific patient, disease or treatment characteristics that predict response in polycystic liver disease during somatostatin analogue therapy. METHODS: We pooled the individual patient data of four trials that evaluated long-acting somatostatin analogues (120 mg lanreotide or 40 mg octreotide) for 6-12 months in polycystic liver disease patients. We performed uni- and multivariate linear regression analysis with preselected patient, disease and drug variables to identify independent predictors of response, defined as per cent change in liver or kidney volume (in ADPKD subgroup). All analyses were adjusted for baseline liver volume and centre. RESULTS: We included 153 polycystic liver disease patients (86% female, median liver volume 4974 ml) from three international centres, all treated with octreotide (n = 70) ...

March is Liver Health Month. Raising awareness about this disease is important to us at RLCF, because 1 in 10 Canadians lives with some type of liver disease. We caught up with our friends at the Canadian Liver Foundation to share some important information about the most commonly diagnosed liver disease: fatty liver disease.. Fatty liver disease is only 1 of over 100 different types of liver diseases, but according to Health Canada it is the most diagnosed liver disease among Canadians. This type of liver disease is a result of excess fat in the liver cells and affects adult men, women and children. In Canada, the leading cause of fatty liver disease is obesity. Alarmingly, the number of obese children in Canada has nearly tripled in the last decade. As obesity becomes more prevalent, statistics have shown that approximately 25% of Canadians or as many as 8 million people are affected by fatty liver disease, even children as young as 4 years old.. Rising as one of the most common and fastest ...

Chronic liver diseases are known to cause several skin manifestations, including cutaneous vascular changes such as spider naevus and palmar erythema. Arteriovenous haemangioma (AVH), a benign acquired cutaneous vascular lesion, has also been reported to be associated with chronic liver disease. We report here four cases of AVH in patients with chronic liver disease: (i) a 59-year-old man who had suffered from chronic active hepatitis associated with hepatitis C virus for 15 years; (ii) a 48-year-old man who had suffered from alcoholic hepatitis for 3 years and was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis 1 year ago; (iii) a 69-year-old female who had had chronic active hepatitis associated with hepatitis C virus infection for 20 years and was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis 7 years ago; and (iv) a 48-year-old man who had had chronic active hepatitis associated with hepatitis B virus infection for about 20 years. All patients showed an asymptomatic solitary dome-shaped reddish papule, 5-10 mm in diameter, ...

This axial (cross sectional) CT, through the upper abdomen with oral contrast, shows extensive cysts within the liver which is enlarged. You can see the enlarged liver bulging towards the anterior abdominal wall. This condition is often autosomal dominant in inheritance and is often associated with cystic disease of the kidneys. The incidence of cystic change increases with age. Development of symptoms may be due to the associated mass effect on surrounding structures or associations with other abnormalities. - Stock Image M130/0999
Introduction: The RELAX-AHF (Relaxin in Acute Heart Failure [AHF]) Phase lll study (NCT00520806) examined the effects of serelaxin (recombinant human relaxin-2) in patients with AHF, and demonstrated favorable tolerability with benefits on short- and longer-term outcomes. The present study evaluated the effect of hepatic impairment on serelaxin pharmacokinetics (PK). Secondary study objectives included safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of serelaxin.. Methods: This open-label, parallel-group study (NCT01433458) enrolled patients 18-70 years of age (mean age 52.0; SD 8.8) with mild (n=9), moderate (n=8), or severe (n=8) hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh Class A, B, and C, respectively) and matched healthy volunteers (n=24). All subjects received a single 24h IV infusion of serelaxin 30 μg/kg/day. Blood sampling and standard safety assessments were conducted. Noncompartmental PK parameters were estimated based on the serelaxin serum concentration-time profiles. Primary PK parameters [including ...
Adrenal gland dysfunction, resulting in hormonal imbalance.. These are just some of the causes of elevated liver enzymes. A host of other conditions may lead to a high liver enzymes count in the blood.. Elevated liver enzymes in pregnancy. Increased liver enzymes during pregnancy may occur due to hereditary liver disorders and viral hepatitis, which can prove fatal to both mother and infant. Elevated liver enzymes during pregnancy may occur due to medical conditions such as ICP (Intrahepatic Choletasis of Pregnancy) and HELLP syndrome. This acronym stands for the breakdown of red blood cells (hemolysis), elevated liver enzymes, and low platelets (low chance of blood clotting). In most cases, pregnancy hormones, immune disorders, and a family history of liver problems cause high liver enzymes in pregnancy and related conditions. Hormonal imbalances during pregnancy may also increase the risk of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, causing increased liver enzymes in pregnancy.. Elevated liver enzymes ...

Liver diseases are not only common among high alcohol consumers but many non-alcohol consumers also suffer from liver complications due to high Body Mass Index (BMI). There is a linear relationship between BMI and non-alcoholic liver diseases like non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and Non-Alcoholic Steato-Hepatitis (NASH). The risk of severe liver diseases increases 5-10-fold in obese patients and 10-20-fold in morbidly obese patients. Also, people with high Body Mass Index (BMI) are at an increased risk of developing diabetes which in turn can increase the risk of developing severe liver disease. As per WHO guidelines, the optimal BMI is between 18.5 to 24.9, said Dr. Sumana Kolar. An abdomen ultrasound along with liver function test can diagnose Non-Alcoholic Steato-Hepatitis (NASH). The definitive test for the same would be a liver biopsy. Generally, corporate employees are more prone to developing non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) due to work stress and sedentary ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Observer error and sampling variability tested in evaluation of hepatitis and cirrhosis by liver biopsy. AU - Soloway, Roger D.. AU - Baggenstoss, Archie H.. AU - Schoenfield, Leslie J.. AU - Summerskill, W. H.J.. PY - 1971/12/1. Y1 - 1971/12/1. N2 - In 50 patients with chronic active liver disease, observer and sampling error in histologically evaluating hepatitis and cirrhosis after blind-needle biopsy of the liver was assessed from coded tissue. This was done by repeated readings of the same specimens by the same pathologist, by sequential biopsies from the same patients with cirrhosis, and by multiple simultaneous biopsies from adjacent areas of the liver. Observer error was small. The consistency of grading the individual histologic characteristics of hepatitis was 90%, and the reproducibility of the degree of either hepatitis or cirrhosis was 94%. Sampling error was also trivial in hepatitis, indicating that a single needle biopsy accurately reflects the type and degree of ...
London, June 17 (IANS) Being overweight during adolescence can put men at significantly higher risk of developing severe liver disease later in life, says a study. The findings are based on 40 years follow-up of study of nearly 45,000 Swedish men.. The study showed that adolescent males with a body mass index (BMI) above 25 are at a 64 per cent increased risk of developing severe liver diseases and liver cell cancer in their late lives. Even for one kg/m2 increase in BMI, obese males can face a five per cent increased risk, the study said.. It is possible that this increased risk is caused by a longer exposure to being overweight, compared to becoming overweight or obese later in life and that individuals with a longer history of being overweight have an increased risk of severe liver disease, said lead investigator Hannes Hagstrom from Karolinska University in Sweden.. In addition, overweight and obesity are associated with a worse prognosis in several liver diseases, such as non-alcoholic ...
For the first time, researchers have shown that a bi-directional relationship exists between fatty liver disease and cardiovascular disease. Fatty liver disease can lead to increased cardiovascular disease risk and vice versa.. The findings, which appear online in the Journal of Hepatology, are important in understanding the link between fatty liver disease and cardiovascular disease, which continues to be one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide.. Due to the increased prevalence of obesity, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease has become the most common liver disease in the U.S., affecting 20-30 percent of the adult population. Obesity is also an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease - so both diseases exist in many patients. Previous studies have shown that there is a link between fatty liver and cardiovascular disease however it is not fully understood if fatty liver disease precedes or develops after cardiovascular disease.. Using data from participants in the ...
Background amp; Aims: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is very common in the general population, but identifying patients with increased risk of mortality and liver-specific morbidity remains a challenge. Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is thought to enhance this risk; therefore, resolution of NASH is a major endpoint in current pharmacologic studies. Herein, we aim to investigate the long-term prognosis of a large cohort of NAFLD patients, and to study the specific effect of NASH and fibrosis stage on prognosis. Methods: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of 646 biopsy-proven NAFLD patients. Each case was matched for age, sex and municipality to ten controls. Outcomes on mortality and severe liver disease, defined as cirrhosis, liver decompensation/failure or hepatocellular carcinoma, were evaluated using population-based registers. Cox regression models adjusted for age, sex and type 2 diabetes were used to examine the long-term risk according to fibrosis stage. Likelihood ...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease describes a range of conditions caused by a build-up of fat within liver cells. But when nonalcoholic fatty liver disease-associated cirrhosis , the condition becomes worth. Liver inflammation leads to scarring of the liver tissue. With time, scarring can become so severe that the liver no longer functions adequately (liver failure).. Most people with simple fatty liver or NASH have no symptoms. However, some people with simple fatty liver or NASH have a nagging persistent pain in the upper right part of the tummy (abdomen), over an enlarged ...
Background & Aims: High alcohol consumption is associated with an increased risk of severe liver disease. Current recommendations suggest it is safe for men to consume 30 grams of alcohol per day. We investigated the association between alcohol consumption early in life and later development of severe liver disease.. Methods: We used data on alcohol consumption at conscription to military service from 43,296 men (18-20 years) in Sweden between 1969 and 1970. Outcomes were defined as incident diagnoses of severe liver disease from systematic national registration of clinical events until the end of 2009. A Cox regression model adjusted for body mass index, smoking, use of narcotics, cognitive ability and cardiovascular capacity was applied.. Results: During a mean follow-up of 37.8 years, 383 men developed severe liver disease. Alcohol consumption was associated with an increased risk of development of severe liver disease in a dose-response pattern (adjusted hazard ratio for every one gram/day ...

If you have been told that you have fatty liver disease, you are among 25 percent of people in the United States and 24 percent of people worldwide who have this condition. Fatty liver disease occurs when fat is deposited in the liver due to causes other than excessive alcohol use. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is one type of fatty liver. NAFLD is the most common liver disorder in developed countries. Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is the most extreme and fastest progressing subtype of NAFLD.. NASH and NAFLD are the leading causes of chronic liver disease. NAFLD is associated with insulin resistance, increasing body mass index (BMI) and age, and metabolic syndrome (obesity, combined hyperlipidemia, Type II diabetes mellitus and high blood pressure) as well as hypoxia caused by obstructive sleep apnea. Being male might also be a risk factor for NAFLD, as NAFLD has been observed to be more prevalent in men than women.. A liver biopsy is the only test widely accepted as ...

Keratin 8 and 18 (K8/18) phosphorylation plays a significant and site-specific role in regulating keratin filament organization, association with binding proteins, and modulation of cell cycle progression. Keratin hyperphosphorylation correlates with exposure to a variety of stresses in cultured cells and in mouse models of liver, pancreatic, and gallbladder injury, and it is found in association with mouse and human Mallory bodies. We asked whether K8/18 phosphorylation correlates with human liver disease progression by analyzing liver explants and biopsies of patients with chronic noncirrhotic hepatitis C virus (HCV) or cirrhosis. We also examined the effect of HCV therapy with interleukin-10 on keratin phosphorylation. Using site-specific antiphosphokeratin antibodies we found keratin hyperphosphorylation on most K8/18 sites in all cirrhotic liver explants tested and in most liver biopsies from patients with chronic HCV infection. Immunofluorescence staining of precirrhotic HCV livers showed ...

Its one thing to have a heart condition which requires you to be on warfarin, but its another to throw liver disease in the mix. This requires much more caution for patients and health care professionals. Liver disease, especially chronic liver disease such as cirrhosis or cancer, puts a patient at a much higher risk for bleeding. When the liver becomes so damaged it can no longer heal itself, it loses the ability to produce enough of the clotting factors that stop someone from bleeding after being cut. Many patients with chronic liver disease suffer from frequent internal bleeding, usually in the stomach or intestine.. If you need to be on anticoagulation therapy and have liver disease, it is very important you be pro-active in your own care. If you monitor your INR at home, check your INR as instructed by your doctor and take it at the same time of day every day. You also need to take your warfarin exactly as instructed by your doctor. Be sure to plan your schedule so as not to miss any of ...
Unexpected discovery of a new molecular signature for a destructive and often lethal pediatric liver disease may lead to a new therapeutic target for the hard-to-treat condition.. In a study that included human livers and a mouse model of biliary atresia, researchers report in the November Journal of Clinical Investigation that not all children with biliary atresia share the same disease process. Some patients have a second molecular conductor of disease called Th2 (T helper cell 2) immune system.. Biliary atresia is disease that destroys the bile ducts in and near the liver in the first few months of life. Driven by an overly aggressive immune system response after birth, the condition is the most common cause of severe pediatric liver disease. The ducts, which normally carry bile from the liver and gall bladder to the intestines, become blocked over time. Even with treatment, which can include surgery, children often need a liver transplant within two years of birth.. Despite the need for ...

Interleukin-7 (IL-7) is a critical factor for T cell development and for maintaining and restoring homeostasis of mature T cells. Polymorphisms at α-chain of the IL-7 receptor (IL7R or CD127) gene are related to evolution of HIV-infection, but there are no data concerning the evolution of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. The aim of this study was to analyze the association between IL7R polymorphisms and severe liver disease in HCV/HIV coinfected patients. We performed a cross-sectional study in 220 naïve patients who underwent a liver biopsy. IL7R polymorphisms (rs6897932, rs987106 and rs3194051) were genotyped using the GoldenGate® assay. The outcome variables were: (a) liver biopsy: advanced fibrosis (F ≥ 3), severe activity grade (A3); (b) non-invasive indexes: advanced fibrosis (APRI ≥1.5 and FIB-4 ≥3.25). Logistic regression analysis was used to investigate the association between IL7R polymorphisms and outcome variables. This test gives the differences between groups and the odds ratio

TY - JOUR. T1 - Keratin 8 mutations in patients with cryptogenic liver disease. AU - Ku, Nam On. AU - Gish, Robert. AU - Wright, Teresa L.. AU - Omary, M. Bishr. N1 - Copyright: Copyright 2007 Elsevier B.V., All rights reserved.. PY - 2001/5/24. Y1 - 2001/5/24. N2 - Background: About 10 percent of patients who undergo liver transplantation have cryptogenic liver disease. In animal models, the absence of heteropolymeric keratins 8 and 18 or the presence of mutant keratins in hepatocytes causes or promotes liver disease. We have previously described a mutation in the keratin 18 gene in a patient with cryptogenic cirrhosis, but the importance of mutations in the keratin 8 and keratin 18 genes in such patients is unclear. Methods: We tested for mutations in the keratin 8 and keratin 18 genes in purified genomic DNA isolated from 150 explanted livers and 89 peripheral-blood specimens from three groups of patients: 55 patients with cryptogenic liver disease; 98 patients with noncryptogenic liver ...

In chronic liver disease leading to fibrosis, hepatic stellate cells (HSC) differentiate into myofibroblasts. Myofibroblastic HSC have taken center stage during liver fibrogenesis, due to their remarkable synthesis of extracellular matrix proteins, their secretion of profibrogenic mediators and their contribution to hypertension, due to elevated contractility. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, noncoding RNA molecules of 19-24 nucleotides in length. By either RNA interference or inhibition of translational initiation and elongation, each miRNA is able to inhibit the gene expression of a wide panel of targeted transcripts. Recently, it was shown that altered miRNA patterns after chronic liver disease highly affect the progression of fibrosis by their potential to target the expression of extracellular matrix proteins and the synthesis of mediators of profibrogenic pathways. Here, we underline the role of miRNAs in the interplay of the profibrogenic cell communication pathways upon myofibroblastic
MONDAY, Jan. 22, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- Men who started drinking in their teens are at increased risk for liver disease, Swedish researchers report.. Our study showed that how much you drink in your late teens can predict the risk of developing cirrhosis later in life, said lead investigator Dr. Hannes Hagstrom, with the Center for Digestive Diseases and Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm.. The finding comes from an analysis of data on more than 49,000 men in Sweden who entered military service in 1969-1970, when they were 18 to 20 years old.. Over the next 39 years, 383 of the men developed cirrhosis and other types of severe liver disease. Some developed liver failure or died from liver disease.. Drinking during the late teen years was associated with an increased risk for liver disease. The association was mostly seen in young men who drank two drinks a day or more, the researchers found. The study was published Jan. 22 in the Journal of Hepatology.. The findings indicate that ...
