We previously conducted nationwide surveys for primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) in Japan, and demonstrated several characteristic features of Japanese PSC patients, yet patients with IgG4-related...
The recent addition of IgG4-associated cholangitis (IAC), also called IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis (IRSC) to the spectrum of chronic cholangiopathies has created the clinical need for reliable...
Recent studies suggested the existence of two subtypes of autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP): type 1 related with IgG4 as the pancreatic manifestation of IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD), and type 2 related...
IgG4-related sclerosing disease is an established disease entity with characteristic clinicopathological features. Some recent reports have demonstrated that this disease can occur in the respiratory...
An immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related disease is a recently emerging entity, and a few cases of IgG4-related disease in lung and pleura have been reported. Herein, we report the case of a 74-year-old ma...
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...
OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the effects of cladribine (2-chlorodeoxyadenosine; 2-CdA) on biochemical, radiologic, and histologic parameters in patients with early stage primary sclerosing...
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.
