The field of liver transplantation directly or indirectly embodies all liver diseases, in addition to specific ones related to organ rejection (cellular and humoral). The recommended non-invasive methods for determining the indication for liver transplantation are the Model for End-stage Liver Disease score, and the alpha-foetoprotein score in case of hepatocellular carcinoma. Radiological methods are the cornerstones for the diagnosis of vascular and biliary complications after liver transplant...

ABSTRACT null null Purpose null The standard of care for treatment of celiac disease (CD) is a stringent lifetime gluten-free diet (GFD). Larazotide acetate (AT-1001) is an anti-zonulin which functions as a gut permeability regulator for treatment of CD. We endeavored to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of all randomized controlled trials (RCTs) which studied the efficacy and safety of AT-1001 in patients with CD. null null null Methods null We examined four databases from inception...
ABSTRACT null null Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is a liver disease characterised by necrotico-inflammatory lesions of hepatocytes, the presence of specific autoantibodies and response to corticosteroid treatment. AIH must be considered in any patient with acute or chronic liver disease. As there is no pathognomonic sign of AIH, the diagnosis is based on a combination of clinical, biological, immunological and histological findings, after excluding other causes of liver disease. The clinical and bi...
Liver steatosis is the hepatic manifestation of the metabolic syndrome, and is now the leading cause of chronic liver disease worldwide. The treatment of metabolic cirrhosis with liver failure and/or hepatocellular carcinoma is liver transplantation (LT). During the past decade, metabolic cirrhosis represented an increasing cause for LT, especially in the United States. At listing, patients with metabolic cirrhosis are older, with numerous cardiovascular (CV) and renal comorbidities, and this re...

Increased serum ferritin is a very frequent cause of referral for which thorough evaluation is required to avoid unnecessary exploration and inaccurate diagnosis. Clinicians must thus know factors and tools that are relevant in this setting. Several biochemical and radiological tools drastically improved the diagnosis work-up of increased serum ferritin. Because serum ferritin value can be altered by many cofounding factors, scrutiny in the initial clinical evaluation is crucial. Alcohol consump...
Abstract null null Background null Whether interferon (IFN)-α therapy is better than nucleos(t)ide analogs (NAs) in the prevention of adverse outcomes, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB) is still uncertain or controversial. This study aimed to compare the cumulative incidence of adverse outcomes in patients with CHB on IFN-α- and NA-based therapies. null null null Methods null This was a retrospective study of patients with CHB on antivirals. Pati...
