Patients with liver cirrhosis have an increased risk to develop life-threatening complications such as spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP). Impairment in the intestinal barrier, change...
Chronic hepatitis B(CHB) is a common infectious disease affecting up to 2 billion people worldwide. Around 650 thousand people died of liver failure, cirrhosis and primary liver cancer cau...
In China, with the improvement of living standards, there is a significant increase in the rate of prevalence of type 2 diabetes and hyperlipidemia, associated with Non-alcoholic fatty liv...
Many studies describe the relationship between microbiota alteration and the occurrence of metabolic, alcoholic or inflammatory liver diseases. Nevertheless, the modifications of microbiot...
The CEDIP LCI study is intended to show the difference in intestinal permeability between compensated and decompensated liver cirrhosis by confocal endoscopy.
Inpatients with cirrhosis are prone to develop acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF). ACLF is associated with dysbiosis of the intestinal microbiota, which might serve as a prognostic factor. We inves...
Design and rationale of the INSYTE study: A randomised, placebo controlled study to test the efficacy of a synbiotic on liver fat, disease biomarkers and intestinal microbiota in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) represents a spectrum of fat-related conditions ranging from simple fatty liver, to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), fibrosis and cirrhosis. There is gro...
Several microorganisms belonging to the intestinal microbiota act in an ecosystem responsible for maintaining the homeostasis and vital functions of human beings. From birth to old age the diversity o...
Alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency (A1ATD) due to homozygosity for the Z-allele (ZZ) is an established risk factor for cirrhosis, but the liver disease risk in heterozygous Z-allele carriers (MZ) is contr...
With the advent of liver transplant for acute liver failure (ALF), survival rate has improved drastically. Liver transplant for ALF accounts for 8% of all transplant cases. The 1-year survival rates a...
Experimentally induced chronic injuries to the parenchymal cells in the liver to achieve a model for LIVER CIRRHOSIS.
Sudden liver failure in the presence of underlying compensated chronic LIVER DISEASE (e.g., LIVER CIRRHOSIS; HEPATITIS; and liver injury and failure) due to a precipitating acute hepatic insult.
Liver diseases associated with ALCOHOLISM. It usually refers to the coexistence of two or more subentities, i.e., ALCOHOLIC FATTY LIVER; ALCOHOLIC HEPATITIS; and ALCOHOLIC CIRRHOSIS.
Liver disease in which the normal microcirculation, the gross vascular anatomy, and the hepatic architecture have been variably destroyed and altered with fibrous septa surrounding regenerated or regenerating parenchymal nodules.
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER due to ALCOHOL ABUSE. It is characterized by NECROSIS of HEPATOCYTES, infiltration by NEUTROPHILS, and deposit of Mallory hyaline bodies. Depending on its severity, the inflammatory lesion may be reversible or progress to LIVER CIRRHOSIS.
