Background and aims null Namibia has been suffering from an outbreak of hepatitis E genotype 2 since 2017. As nearly half of hepatitis E-related deaths were among pregnant and postpartum women, we analysed maternal and fetal outcomes of pregnancies complicated by acute hepatitis E and assessed whether HIV-status impacted on outcome. null Methods null A retrospective cross-sectional study was performed at Windhoek Hospital Complex. Pregnant and postpartum women, admitted between 13 October 2017 -...

BACKGROUND Despite substantial attention paid to the epidemic of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in adults, data on the burden and sexual dimorphism of NAFLD in Asian children have not yet been synthesized. METHODS We conducted a literature search of 735 references up to April 2021. Pooled analyses, stratified analyses and meta-regression were all performed. RESULTS Thirty-three study populations were finally included. Nine of them comprising 20 595 children showed an overall NAFLD prev...

The COVID-19 pandemic threatened to completely change the priorities of our health systems. However, the diagnosis and timely treatment of patients with cancer should never be compromised: the interruption or delay of cancer surveillance or treatments schedules, due to pandemic, may significantly impact patients' survival.[1] This is particularly true for HCC: despite the task of guaranteeing the safety of our patients, facing a new infection with an increased mortality risk in patients with cir...

BACKGROUND The natural history of patients with anti-mitochondrial antibody (AMA)-negative Primary Biliary Cholangitis (PBC) cirrhosis has not been well defined, with prior studies showing discordant results. Furthermore, most studies of AMA-negative PBC have limited numbers of patients with cirrhosis and liver-related outcomes. METHODS We investigated the association of AMA-negative PBC and the development of death, liver-related death, decompensation and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), in a la...

BACKGROUND & AIMS How adiposity influences the effect of genetic variants on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in the Asian population remains unclear. We aimed to study the association between genetic risk variants and susceptibility/severity of NAFLD in the lean, overweight and obese individuals. METHODS Nine hundred and four community subjects underwent proton-magnetic resonance spectroscopy and transient elastography examination. Lean (<23 kg/m2 ), overweight (23-24.9 kg/m2 ) and obe...

Recently, we read with interest the publication by Berkan-Kawinska and colleagues which compared real world hepatitis C virus (HCV) treatment in patients with decompensated cirrhosis and compensated cirrhosis. Authors noted that use of treatment regimens including a protease inhibitor did not increase the risk of hepatic decompensation.1 We would like to present additional data, particularly regarding the use of sofosbuvir/velpatasvir/voxilaprevir as a salvage therapy in this difficult-to-cure p...

Background & aims null Public health measures introduced to limit transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), also disrupted various healthcare services in many regions worldwide, including British Columbia (BC), Canada. We assessed the impact of these measures, first introduced in BC in March 2020, on hepatitis C (HCV) testing and first-time HCV-positive diagnoses within the province. null Methods null De-identi...
