Circulating markers of gut barrier function associated with disease severity in primary sclerosing cholangitis.

Summary of "Circulating markers of gut barrier function associated with disease severity in primary sclerosing cholangitis."

One important hypothesis in primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) pathophysiology suggests that bacterial products from an inflamed leaky gut leads to biliary inflammation. We aimed to investigate whether circulating markers of bacterial translocation were associated with survival in a Norwegian PSC cohort.

Viewpoint: Toward the Genetic Architecture of Disease Severity in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases.

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is characterized by uneven disease courses with various clinical outcomes. A few prognostic markers of disease severity may help stratify patients and identify those w...

Circulating PCSK9 levels are not associated with the severity of hepatic steatosis and NASH in a high-risk population.

Some studies suggested that proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin type 9 (PCSK9) is linked to liver steatosis severity and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). We aimed to assess whether circulating...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A severity of disease classification system designed to measure the severity of disease for patients aged 15 and over admitted to intensive care units.

An analysis comparing the allele frequencies of all available (or a whole GENOME representative set of) polymorphic markers in unrelated patients with a specific symptom or disease condition, and those of healthy controls to identify markers associated with a specific disease or condition.

The barrier between the perineurium of PERIPHERAL NERVES and the endothelium (ENDOTHELIUM, VASCULAR) of endoneurial CAPILLARIES. The perineurium acts as a diffusion barrier, but ion permeability at the blood-nerve barrier is still higher than at the BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER.

The property of blood capillary ENDOTHELIUM that allows for the selective exchange of substances between the blood and surrounding tissues and through membranous barriers such as the BLOOD-AIR BARRIER; BLOOD-AQUEOUS BARRIER; BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER; BLOOD-NERVE BARRIER; BLOOD-RETINAL BARRIER; and BLOOD-TESTIS BARRIER. Small lipid-soluble molecules such as carbon dioxide and oxygen move freely by diffusion. Water and water-soluble molecules cannot pass through the endothelial walls and are dependent on microscopic pores. These pores show narrow areas (TIGHT JUNCTIONS) which may limit large molecule movement.

The selectively permeable barrier, in the EYE, formed by the nonpigmented layer of the EPITHELIUM of the CILIARY BODY, and the ENDOTHELIUM of the BLOOD VESSELS of the IRIS. TIGHT JUNCTIONS joining adjacent cells keep the barrier between cells continuous.
