Sarcopenia, defined as progressive and generalized loss of muscle mass and strength, is common in chronic liver disease. It significantly impacts the quality of life and increases the risk of liver-related complications and mortality in cirrhotic patients. Moreover, recent studies showed a negative impact of sarcopenia on patients awaiting liver transplantation (LT), on post-LT outcomes, and on response to hepatocellular carcinoma therapies. Data about the influence of sex on the incidence, prev...

Abstract null null Background null PPI-refractory gastroesophageal reflux disease (RGERD) is characterized as the existence of reflux symptoms resistant to optimized PPI treatment. Alleviated mucosal integrity has been regarded as one of the mechanisms of RGERD. null null null Methods null RNA sequencing analysis and GSEA were performed. Human biopsy samples, cell lines, and rat models were recruited. Trans-epithelial electrical resistance (TEER) was tested and a FITC-dextran flux assay was perf...

Abstract null null Background null Pseudogenes are dysfunctional copies of protein-coding genes that showed critical regulatory roles during carcinogenesis. Plasminogen like A (PLGLA) is a transcribed unprocessed pseudogene and biasedly expressed in liver. But its function has not been studied in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). null null null Aims null We aimed to explore the role of PLGLA in HCC. null null null Methods null The expression of PLGLA and its association with pathological features ...

Background Spontaneous portosystemic shunts (SPSS) are common in cirrhosis. Their characterization and clinical implications remain unclear. Aims To devise a system of assessment of these shunts, and assess their clinical implications METHODS: We retrospectively studied patients with cirrhosis who underwent imaging in a liver transplant program. A novel index was computed to assess total SPSS -the diameter of a circle having an area equivalent to the sum of the areas of all the existing shunts. ...
