Summary of "What Is Hot and New in Basic and Translational Science in Liver Transplantation in 2019? Report of the Basic and Translational Research Committee of the International Liver Transplantation Society."

The International Liver Transplantation Society (ILTS) 2019 Annual Congress was held in Toronto, Canada in May 2019. Members of the ILTS Basic and Translational Research Committee attended all sessions of the meeting, and selected the most promising, innovative and novel research presented. A total of 900 abstracts were presented at the meeting. The percentage of abstracts presented at the ILTS Congress that contains basic or translational research continues to increase, accounting for 15 percent of all the abstracts in 2019, up from 10 percent in 2018. Here, we summarize the "what's hot what's new" in 5 main themes: liver immunobiology and tolerance, ischemia/reperfusion injury and organ preservation, bioengineering and liver regeneration, hepatic primary tumor biology, and pathophysiology of liver failure.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.

The transference of a part of or an entire liver from one human or animal to another.

Conditions in which the LIVER functions fall below the normal ranges. Severe hepatic insufficiency may cause LIVER FAILURE or DEATH. Treatment may include LIVER TRANSPLANTATION.

Single or multiple areas of PUS due to bacterial infection within the hepatic parenchyma. It can be caused by a variety of BACTERIA, local or disseminated from infections elsewhere such as in APPENDICITIS; CHOLECYSTITIS; PERITONITIS; and after LIVER TRANSPLANTATION.

Preparative treatment of transplant recipient with various conditioning regimens including radiation, immune sera, chemotherapy, and/or immunosuppressive agents, prior to transplantation. Transplantation conditioning is very common before bone marrow transplantation.
