Abstract Aims. IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis in extrahepatic bile ducts in the absence of autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is rare and is poorly studied. Herein, we present the clinicopathological ...
Response to steroids is included in the diagnostic criteria for IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis (IgG4-SC). To assess how to appropriately conduct steroid trials for IgG4-related SC, we examined th...
Comparisons of intraductal ultrasonography (IDUS) findings between primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) and IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis (IgG4-SC) have not been elucidated. We aimed to clarify ...
We report a rare case of immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related sclerosing cholangitis without other organ involvement. A 69-year-old-man was referred for the evaluation of jaundice. Computed tomography rev...
IgG4-related disease is a systemic disorder that can involve various abdominal organs. Abdominal manifestations include autoimmune pancreatitis, sclerosing cholangitis, gallbladder pseudotumours, mult...
The objectives of this qualitative study are to elicit concepts about symptoms that are important to patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), as well as the key impacts of sympt...
OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the safety and effectiveness of budesonide in patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis or primary biliary cirrhosis experiencing a suboptimal response to ursode...
This is a multicenter, randomized, controlled trial of high dose ursodiol versus placebo for patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). The average duration of follow-up will be ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether fenofibrate is safe and effective in the treatment primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC).
The reason for this study is to see if a new radiologic technique called computerized tomographic cholangiography (CT cholangiography) could be helpful to demonstrate the bile ducts featur...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Chronic inflammatory disease of the BILIARY TRACT. It is characterized by fibrosis and hardening of the intrahepatic and extrahepatic biliary ductal systems leading to bile duct strictures, CHOLESTASIS, and eventual BILIARY CIRRHOSIS.
Inflammation of the biliary ductal system (BILE DUCTS); intrahepatic, extrahepatic, or both.
Impairment of bile flow due to injury to the HEPATOCYTES; BILE CANALICULI; or the intrahepatic bile ducts (BILE DUCTS, INTRAHEPATIC).
The use of one's knowledge in a particular profession. It includes, in the case of the field of biomedicine, professional activities related to health care and the actual performance of the duties related to the provision of health care.
FIBROSIS of the hepatic parenchyma due to obstruction of BILE flow (CHOLESTASIS) in the intrahepatic or extrahepatic bile ducts (BILE DUCTS, INTRAHEPATIC; BILE DUCTS, EXTRAHEPATIC). Primary biliary cirrhosis involves the destruction of small intra-hepatic bile ducts and bile secretion. Secondary biliary cirrhosis is produced by prolonged obstruction of large intrahepatic or extrahepatic bile ducts from a variety of causes.
