Use of Bezafibrate in Patients With Primary Biliary Cirrhosis to Archive Complete Biochemical Response in Non-responders

The primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), formerly known as primary biliary cirrhosis, treatment is based in the use of ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) at a daily dose of 13 to 15 mg/kg, without other treatment options. Patients with good or complete response to UDCA have more liver transplant-free survival and delay histologic progression compared to patients with partial or no response. Nowadays there is an estimated partial response to UDCA in approximately 30 to 50% of patients wi...

Bariatric Embolization of Arteries in Obese Patients With HCC to Allow Salvage Liver Transplantation

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common primary malignant liver tumor and has a grave prognosis. Obesity is an epidemic in the US.Patients with HCC and obesity are not candidates for liver transplantation, depriving them of the best option for cure from HCC.

Interest of elastoFRM With Force Measure by MRI on Patients With Hepatocellular Cancer

FORCE project aims to measure actives forces of malignant tumor by magnetic resonance force (FRM). Two main forces are considered as key indicators of therapeutic response and metastatic potential: interstitial force and traction force at the interface cell/tumor. Biomarkers of these forces will be developped using direct images of magnetic resonance force (FRM). Efficiency of these non-invasive biomarkers will be evaluated through their capacity to predict tumoral environment ...

This treatment can prevent graft rejection, but can cause side effects including kidney failure (in 25% after the first year). Everolimus is an immunosuppressive that effectively prevents acute rejection in heart and kidney transplant recipients. It preserves renal function when it is started soon after the transplant, i.e. before a severe dysfunc...
