IgG4-associated cholangitis (IAC) is an inflammatory disorder of the biliary tract representing a major manifestation of IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) often with elevation of serum IgG4 levels, infil...
Orbital sclerosing inflammation is a distinct group of pathologies characterized by indolent growth with minimal or no signs of inflammation. However, contrary to earlier classifications, it should no...
Introduction. Recent studies suggest that serum alkaline phosphatase may represent a prognostic biomarker in patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis. However, this association remains poorly un...
Critically ill patients are commonly imaged for liver dysfunction. An often fatal condition, secondary sclerosing cholangitis, is an important and likely under-recognized hepatic condition in these pa...
Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is an uncommon inflammatory disorder that may affect multiple organ systems, including the biliary tree. IgG4-sclerosing cholangitis (IgG4-SC) c...
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 study evaluates corticosteroids in the treatment of obstructive jaundice in autoimmune pancreatitis and/or immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related sclerosing cholangitis in adults. Half of p...
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 ...
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.
