Summary of "NFE2L2 is associated with NQO1 expression and low stage of hepatic fibrosis in patients with chronic hepatitis C."

Oxidative stress is extremely important in the pathogenesis of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV). In response to oxidative stress, adaptive antioxidant defenses are upregulated in the liver. The balance between antioxidant response and oxidative stress plays a key role in hepatic injury in HCV infection.

MiR-542-3p controls hepatic stellate cell activation and fibrosis via targeting BMP-7.

There has been an increasing number of studies about microRNAs as key regulators in the development of hepatic fibrosis. Here, we demonstrate that miR-542-3p can promote hepatic fibrosis by downregula...

lncRNA GAS5 Restrains CCl-Induced Hepatic Fibrosis by Targeting miR-23a through the PTEN/PI3K/Akt Signaling Pathway.

Hepatic fibrosis is chronic liver damage with many causes that has a relatively high death rate. The current study showed that lncRNA GAS5, miR-23a and PTEN play important roles in the pathological pr...

Ameliorates Thioacetamide-Induced Hepatic Fibrosis via TGF-β1/Smads Pathways.

Hepatic fibrosis, characterized by persistent deposition of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins, occurs in most types of chronic liver disease. The prevention of liver damage using extract of has bee...

Molecular drivers of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis are sustained in mild-to-late fibrosis progression in a guinea pig model.

Hepatic fibrosis increases mortality in humans with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), but it remains unclear how fibrosis stage and progression affect the pathogenic mechanisms of NASH. This study...

Hepatocyte-specific suppression of microRNA-221-3p mitigates liver fibrosis.

Fibrosis, a cardinal feature of a dysfunctional liver, significantly contributes to the ever-increasing mortality due to end-stage chronic liver diseases. The cross-talk, between hepatocytes and hepat...

Hepatic Fibrosis Assessment Using Multiparametric MRI

The purpose of this study is to assess degree of hepatic fibrosis using multiparametric MRI for investigating difference between normal or early fibrosis and advanced fibrosis.

Serum Ferritin as a Non-invasive Marker in Prediction of Hepatic Fibrosis Among NAFLD Patients

This study was designed to assess the relation between serum ferritin and hepatic fibrosis in patients with NAFLD. It included 83 patients with NAFLD with or without hepatic fibrosis, in a...

Evaluation of Irbesartan on Hepatic Fibrosis in Chronic Hepatitis C

The purpose of this study is to examine the efficacy of irbesartan on the progression of liver fibrosis in adults patients with chronic hepatitis C. The expected total enrollment is 200 pa...

Utility of Point Shear-wave Elastography to Assess for Hepatic & Pancreatic Fibrosis in Pediatric CF Patients

Diagnosis of hepatic fibrosis is challenging as specific tests for detection of fibrosis in pediatric Cystic Fibrosis associated liver disease (CFALD) have not been developed and existing ...

Non-invasive Evaluation of Hepatic Fibrosis in Patients With the Metabolic Syndrome

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is now recognised as the hepatic complication of the metabolic syndrome of insulin resistance. In some patients, the disease can progress into ste...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition in which the hepatic venous outflow is obstructed anywhere from the small HEPATIC VEINS to the junction of the INFERIOR VENA CAVA and the RIGHT ATRIUM. Usually the blockage is extrahepatic and caused by blood clots (THROMBUS) or fibrous webs. Parenchymal FIBROSIS is uncommon.

FIBROSIS of the hepatic parenchyma due to chronic excess ALCOHOL DRINKING.

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.

The stage in the first meiotic prophase, following ZYGOTENE STAGE, when CROSSING OVER between homologous CHROMOSOMES begins.

Irreversible FIBROSIS of the submucosal tissue of the MOUTH.
