While primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) has been recognized for decades, immunoglobulin G4-related sclerosing cholangitis (IgG4-SC) has been correctly diagnosed only in recent years. PSC and IgG4-S...
Several studies have demonstrated that elevated serum IgG4 levels are associated with poor outcomes of primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), but the impact of serum IgG4 levels on PSC remains controve...
Chronic sclerosing sialadenitis is a benign inflammatory condition that most commonly affects the submandibular gland in elderly individuals. It is currently known to belong to the spectrum of IgG4-re...
Immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4) related sclerosing disease (RSD) of the paranasal sinuses is a rare lesion of dense lymphoplasmacytic tissue, with a high proportion of IgG4+ plasma cells. We presented a rare...
IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a fascinating clinical entity proposed by Japanese investigators, and includes a wide variety of diseases, formerly diagnosed as Mikulicz's disease (MD), autoimmune p...
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...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether curcumin, a drug and naturally-occurring plant compound, is safe and effective in the treatment of primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC).
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...
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.
