TY - JOUR. T1 - Autoimmune hepatitis. AU - Li, Ding You. AU - Schwarz, Kathleen B.. PY - 2004/2. Y1 - 2004/2. N2 - Autoimmune hepatitis affects all ages with a peak incidence in preadolescent girls. The pathogenesis of autoimmune hepatitis has not been defined. Susceptibility, clinical manifestations, and treatment outcomes are affected by environmental factors, individual immunoregulatory responses, genetic factors, age and gender. An international panel has developed diagnostic criteria for autoimmune hepatitis, and a scoring system to assess the strength of the diagnosis has also been proposed. This article discusses the diagnosis and treatment of the three types of autoimmune hepatitis proposed based on characteristic autoantibody profiles, as well as de novo autoimmune hepatitis, a new type of autoimmune hepatitis that has been recently described in liver transplant recipients without previous autoimmune disease..

What is Autoimmune Hepatitis? Autoimmune hepatitis is a disease in which the bodys immune system attacks liver cells. This immune response causes inflammation of the liver, also called hepatitis. Researchers think a genetic factor may make some people more susceptible to autoimmune diseases. About 70 percent of those with autoimmune hepatitis are female.
The doctor will make a diagnosis based on symptoms, blood tests, and a liver biopsy.. Blood tests. A routine blood test for liver enzymes can help reveal a pattern typical of hepatitis, but further tests, especially for autoantibodies, are needed to diagnose autoimmune hepatitis. Antibodies are proteins made by the immune system to fight off bacteria and viruses. Autoantibodies attack the bodys cells. In autoimmune hepatitis, the immune system makes one or more types of autoantibodies. The most common are antinuclear antibodies (ANA), smooth muscle antibodies (SMA), and antibodies to liver and kidney microsomes (anti-LKM). People with type 1 have ANA, SMA, or both, and people with type 2 have anti-LKM.. Blood tests also help distinguish autoimmune hepatitis from other diseases that resemble it, such as viral hepatitis B or C or a metabolic disease such as Wilson disease.. Liver biopsy. A tiny sample of liver tissue, examined with a microscope, can help doctors accurately diagnose autoimmune ...
Autoimmune hepatitis, formerly called lupoid hepatitis, is a chronic, autoimmune disease of the liver that occurs when the bodys immune system attacks liver cells causing the liver to be inflamed. Common initial symptoms include fatigue or muscle aches or signs of acute liver inflammation including fever, jaundice, and right upper quadrant abdominal pain. Individuals with autoimmune hepatitis often have no initial symptoms and the disease is detected by abnormal liver function tests. Anomalous presentation of MHC class II receptors on the surface of liver cells,[citation needed] possibly due to genetic predisposition or acute liver infection, causes a cell-mediated immune response against the bodys own liver, resulting in autoimmune hepatitis. This abnormal immune response results in inflammation of the liver, which can lead to further symptoms and complications such as fatigue and cirrhosis. The disease may occur in any ethnic group and at any age, but is most often diagnosed in patients ...
Autoimmune hepatitis is an autoimmune chronic liver disease whose treatment includes the use of immunosuppressive drugs, particularly azathioprine, and corticosteroids. When properly treated, patients have a good survival. One of the major problems related to its treatment is the the high rate of relapses after stopping therapy that has lead to biochemical and histological remissions, close to 80%. Many authors recommend continuous treatment throughout life, resulting in the occurrence of many side effects. Chloroquine is a drug with anti-inflammatory properties already used in the treatment of other extrahepatic autoimmune liver diseases. There are some reports in the literature about its beneficial use in liver diseases such as chronic hepatitis B, and a pilot study in patients with autoimmune hepatitis, in which its use was associated with a 6.49 times lower risk of disease recurrence when compared with patients in whom treatment was discontinued after remission. Our purpose is to ...
AIH so far thought to be an auto-immune disease. One of the genetic predisposing factors is thought to be HLA-DR3 and DR4 genes. The present study aimed at investigation the frequencies of HLA-DR3, DR4 and HLA-B27 genes among the Real-time PCR were used for the HLA-genes. The age of the patients were ranged from 7- 69 years in AIH group and from 8-67 years in healthy controls group. On the context of genotyping of HLA- genes, DR3, DR4, and B27 were found to be differed in their frequencies significantly among AIH patients that creating high etiological fraction of 0.504, 0.583, and 0.129 respectively compared to healthy controls, with odd ratio (OR) 7.35 for DR3, high OR 8.0 for DR4 and 2.23 for B27. The frequencies of these genes in AIH patients, highly significant differed between patient group, for DR3 compared to healthy group which 58.3% and 16% respectively, and very high significantly differed between patient group for DR4 compared to healthy group which 66.7% and 20% respectively, while no

Pilot Study of Budesonide for Primary Biliary Cirrhosis with overlap features of Autoimmune Hepatitis Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) is a chronic liver disease of unknown cause that may result in inflammation and destruction of the bile ducts inside the liver. Over time, cirrhosis and complications of liver failure may develop. Although treatment with ursodiol has been association with a reduction in liver enzymes (blood tests) and a reduction in the progression of the disease, some patients do not respond to ursodiol therapy. Patients with overlap features of Autoimmune Hepatitis (AIH) appear to be at higher risk of developing complications of disease even when on ursodiol. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects and safety of Budesonide in PBC with overlap features of AIH. Budesonide has unique effects on the immune system that may be helpful in the treatment of the disease.. Eligible participants will include those patients with a diagnosis of PBC with overlap features of AIH ...
PBC was first described in India from our centre in 1973 as a rare entity [1]. The largest series from India describes late detection of PBC and PBC/AIH overlap (26%) due to low intensity of screening and evaluation of liver function [2].. There is currently no consensus on what constitutes an autoimmune overlap syndrome. In true overlap syndrome, the patient has clinical, serologic and histologic characteristics of two conditions either at the same time or during the course of their illness [3]. In a study by Amrapurkar et al [4] all 6 cases of PBC/AIH overlap were detected in a late stage i.e cirrhotics and in a case report from Pune [5], the female patient presented with decompensated cirrhosis conforming to the findings of Sarin et al [2]. This index case has been detected in the incipient stage, where by using stringent diagnostic criteria (International Autoimmune Hepatitis criteria [6]: 7/15; recent simplified criteria for AIH [7]: 5/7; PBC criteria: 3/3) the patient may be labeled as a ...
There is still no known direct cause for autoimmune hepatitis. The Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Center note that people who have a family history of autoimmune conditions, or those with other autoimmune diseases, may be more likely to get autoimmune hepatitis.. According to the NIDDK, some common medicines may cause autoimmune liver injury, including the antibiotics minocycline and nitrofurantoin. However, in these cases, the symptoms typically clear up once the person stops taking the medication.. No matter what triggers the disease, the cause of the symptoms is damage to the liver. The immune system in the body gets wrong signals about normal cells, mistaking them for invading cells. It attacks these cells and damages the liver tissue, leading to symptoms over time.. ...
Hepatitis is the inflammation of the liver, resulting in liver cell damage and destruction. In autoimmune hepatitis, the bodys own immune system destroys the cells of the liver. It is a chronic inflammatory liver disease with no known cause. It is associated with a disorder called hypergammaglobulinemia. Hypergammaglobulinemia is a disorder where there are too any circulating protein antibodies in the blood. A chronic infection or certain malignant blood diseases may cause hypergammaglobulinemia. Autoimmune hepatitis may resolve without treatment in some individuals, but, for the majority of individuals, it is chronic and can lead to cirrhosis and liver failure ...
Autoimmune hepatitis may present completely asymptomatic (12-35% of the cases), with signs of chronic liver disease, or acute or even fulminant hepatic failure.[5][6]. People usually present with one or more nonspecific symptoms, sometimes of long lasting duration, as fatigue, general ill health, lethargy, weight loss, mild right upper quadrant pain, malaise, anorexia, nausea, jaundice or arthralgia affecting the small joints. Rarely, rash or unexplained fever may appear. In women, amenorrhoea is a frequent feature. Physical examination may be normal, but it may also reveal signs and symptoms of chronic liver disease. Many people have only laboratory abnormalities as their initial presentation, as unexplained increase in transaminases and are diagnosed during an evaluation for other reasons. Others have already developed cirrhosis at diagnosis.[6] Of note, alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin are usually normal. Autoimmune hepatitis frequently appears associated with other autoimmune conditions, ...
Our study indicates that 7% of patients with type 1 autoimmune hepatitis deteriorate during corticosteroid therapy and that treatment failure is associated with onset at an early age, acute presentation, hyperbilirubinemia, HLA DRB1*03, and a MELD score of at last 12 points. We could not ascribe the treatment failure to transition of the autoimmune hepatitis to another condition, and only 1 patient developed fatty liver disease, in whom treatment failure might have related to a superimposed or concurrent disease. Treatment failure was associated with a poor prognosis despite high-dose corticosteroid treatment, 7 patients (50%) either died of liver-related causes or required transplantation, and only 2 patients (14%) achieved remission.. Previous studies have indicated the importance of using disease severity, shown by histological pattern and laboratory features, to identify patients who have a poor prognosis if they are untreated.56 These findings, however, have not reliably identified those ...

Hepatic fibrosis develops or progresses in 25 % of patients with autoimmune hepatitis despite corticosteroid therapy. Current management regimens lack reliable noninvasive methods to assess changes in hepatic fibrosis and interventions that disrupt fibrotic pathways. The goals of this review are to indicate promising noninvasive methods to monitor hepatic fibrosis in autoimmune hepatitis and identify anti-fibrotic interventions that warrant evaluation. Laboratory methods can differentiate cirrhosis from non-cirrhosis, but their accuracy in distinguishing changes in histological stage is uncertain. Radiological methods include transient elastography, acoustic radiation force impulse imaging, and magnetic resonance elastography. Methods based on ultrasonography are comparable in detecting advanced fibrosis and cirrhosis, but their performances may be compromised by hepatic inflammation and obesity. Magnetic resonance elastography has excellent performance parameters for all histological stages in ...

Introduction To define the clinical features, biochemical and histological findings and outcome of three forms of autoimmune hepatitis. Materials and Methods In a cross sectional study between November 2001 to January 2008 in Tehran and Mashhad university of medical sciences, 61 children who diagnosed as AIH (40 girls and 21 boys) have been analyzed for their clinical, serological, and histological data. Variables analyzed included age, sex, clinical presentation, hepatic function, immunoglobulins, autoimmunity markers, histology and clinical evolution. According to the auto-antibodies profile, AIH patients were classified as type I AIH (ANA or smooth-muscle antibodies or both positive), type II (anti-LKM-1 positive) and type III (antibody negative). Results We analyzed data of 61 children with AIH. 51 patients (median age: 10 (0.7-14) years had anti-nuclear and/or smooth muscle antibody (ANA/ASMA or both), 5 (median age: 7 (2-8) years) had liver/kidney microsomal antibody (LKM-1). 5 patients had no

ICD-10 code: K75.4. Definition: Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is a chronic immune-mediated liver disorder of unknown etiology characterised by hepatocellular inflammation, tranaminitis and distinctive autoantibodies.. Pathology: Liver biopsy should be obtained early to establish histologic severity and guide therapy. Characteristic histology includes a lymphoplasmacytic periportal infiltration. lobular inflammation, granulomas and eosinophils. With chronicity portal inflammation may undergo "piecemeal necrosis" interface hepatitis or fibrosis.. Demographics: AIH is rare with an incidence rate of 1-2 per 100,000 per year and a prevalence of 10-20/100,000.. Cardinal Features: AIH more commonly affects women (70%) than men (30%), usually under the age 40 yrs. More than 1/3 will be asymptomatic and only exhibit transaminitis. Up to 1/3 will have an acute onset of fever, abdominal pain, jaundice, hepatomegaly and moderate to severe AST and ALT elevations with normal or slight increases in alkaline ...
Dr. Anil Sharma had excellent learning points specifically regarding autoimmune hepatitis including:. 1) The diagnosis of autoimmune hepatitis is complex and based upon a number of clinical, biochemical, serologic, and histologic findings (and exclusion of other forms of liver disease).. 2) AST and ALT are elevated (range from mild elevations to greater than 1000 U/L), ALP is normal to mildly elevated, serum IgG levels are also elevated, anti-smooth muscle or antinuclear antibodies are typically present, and classic histologic findings include interface hepatitis (biliary tree sparing) and lymphoplasmacytic infiltrates.. 3) The newer F-actin ELISA seems to be a useful diagnostic tool for autoimmune hepatitis. ...
In this study, we had applied a comprehensive serum proteomics strategy to look for important differential proteins in serum based on AIH mouse model and patients serum. And totally 9 altered proteins were identified in AIH mice serum by 2-DE. Two upregulated proteins, C3 and A2M, were validated in the serum of AIH patients by a targeted iTRAQ analysis. And furthermore, serum level of C3 and A2M was generally higher in 34 cases of AIH patients than normal persons by ELISA detection. From mouse models to clinical AIH sera, the integrated serum proteomics investigation can overcome discrepancy in samples and tools, which is a translational medical viewpoint to look for the molecules associated with AIH.. Serum proteome contains the proteins not only from the liver, small intestine synthesis such as albumin, but also millions of species of immunoglobulin. The serum proteome holds the promise of a reform in disease diagnosis and therapeutic monitoring provided that major challenges in proteomics ...
We investigated the specificities and characteristics of anti-cytoskeleton antibodies in 13 anti-smooth muscle antibody (ASMA)-positive patients with chronic liver disease C (CLD-C), and compared them with those in 7 ASMA-positive patients with autoimmune hepatitis (AIH), and 6 ASMA-positive patients with chronic liver disease B (CLD-B). Anti-microfilaments (anti-MF) were found not only in 6/7 AIH patients (85.7%), but also in 8/13 CLD-C patients (61.5%) with a relatively high incidence, when compared with 1/6 CLD-B patients (16.7%), while, there was no significant difference in the incidence of anti-intermediate filaments (anti-IMF), especially anti-IMF IgM, among these patient groups. Among the patients with CLD-C, the mean levels of serum gammaglobulin and IgG in the anti-MF-positive patients were 2.46 +/- 1.03 g/dl and 3277 +/- 1089 mg/dl, respectively, which were higher than those in the anti-MF-negative patients (1.60 +/- 0.53 g/dl, 2245 +/- 610 mg/dl) and those in the patients with CLD-B ...
Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) may have an atypical serum alkaline phosphatase elevation, antimitochondrial antibodies, histologic features of bile duct injury/loss, or cholangiographic findings of focal biliary strictures and dilations. These manifestations characterize the overlap syndromes. Patients can be classified as having AIH with features of primary biliary cholangitis, primary sclerosing cholangitis, or a cholestatic syndrome. The gold standard of diagnosis is clinical judgment. Histologic evaluation is a major diagnostic component. Treatment is based on algorithms; outcomes vary depending on the predominant disease component. Combination therapy has been the principal recommendation.

Abstract. Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) can arise de novo after liver transplantation (LT) for non-autoimmune liver diseases. Considering the identical features of de novo AIH after LT and classical AIH, as well as the importance of anti-human leukocyte antigen (HLA) antibodies in graft rejection, we investigated the presence of circulating anti-HLA class II antibodies in the sera of 35 patients with AIH, 30 patients with primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC), and 30 healthy donors using fluorescent dye-impregnated beads bound to HLA molecules. We then investigated the allele specificity of the antibodies and identified the HLA alleles in each patient using DNA-based HLA typing. We also examined HLA class II expression in liver samples using immunohistochemistry. Anti-HLA class II antibodies were detected significantly more frequently in the patients with AIH (88.1%) than in the patients with PBC (33.3%) or in the healthy donors (13.3%) (both P ,0.01). We confirmed that the anti-HLA class II antibodies ...

A gene mutation disrupts the activity of certain immune cells and causes the immune system to erroneously attack the liver, according to a new animal study from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. The findings, published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, will provide a new model for studying drug targets and therapies for Autoimmune Hepatitis (AIH), a condition for which the only treatment options are short-acting steroids or liver transplant. Â T-cells, immune cells created in an organ called the thymus, grow into healthy T-cells with the help of medullary thymic epithelial cells (mTECs). mTECs act as coaches to T-cells to teach them when to attack tissue that might be harmful and when to leave it alone. T-cells that attack healthy body tissue are programmed to die. Led by Konstantina Alexandropoulos, PhD, associate professor of medicine in the Division of Clinical Immunology at Mount Sinai, the research team sought to create a model for understanding why certain immune cells called

Autoimmune liver diseases are typically chronic conditions. This means that patients may experience persistent immune system attacks that destroy liver cells. As cells die, scar tissue known as fibrosis forms. Fortunately, autoimmune diseases tend to progress slowly. Many patients experience long periods without symptoms.. When fibrosis does become extreme and liver function is weakened, the condition is called cirrhosis. Also known as liver failure or end-stage liver disease, the only successful cure for this condition is organ transplantation. However, many individuals with cirrhosis can have their symptoms successfully managed with medication and avoid the need for transplantation.. A large number of patients with autoimmune liver disease also have additional forms of autoimmunity. Liver specialists work closely with other experts at Mount Sinai to provide a comprehensive approach to treating multiple autoimmune conditions, thereby keeping immune system activity and symptoms under ...
