  • Efficacy of l-Ornithine l-Aspartate for the Treatment of Hepatic
           Encephalopathy and Hyperammonemia in Cirrhosis: Systematic Review and
           Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
    • Authors: Roger F. Butterworth; Gerald Kircheis, Norbert Hilger, Mark J.W. McPhail
      Abstract: l-Ornithine l-Aspartate (LOLA) is a mixture of two endogenous amino acids with the capacity to fix ammonia in the form of urea and/or glutamine. Its’ efficacy for the treatment of Hepatic Encephalopathy (HE), a known hyperammonemic disorder, remains the subject of debate. This study quantitatively analyzed the efficacy of LOLA in patients with cirrhosis and HE.

  • Results of Sofosbuvir Plus Ribavirin in Patients With Hepatitis C Related
           Decompensated Cirrhosis
    • Authors: Naveen Tmu; Ashish Kumar, Praveen Sharma, Vikas Singla, Naresh Bansal, Anil Arora
      Abstract: Sofosbuvir (SOF), a direct acting antiviral, has revolutionized the treatment of chronic Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) infection. However, data is scarce about efficacy of SOF plus Ribavarin (RBV) in Indian patients with decompensated cirrhosis. We evaluated the efficacy of SOF plus RBV in decompensated cirrhosis, and compared the outcome with compensated cirrhosis and non-cirrhotics.

  • Hepatic Encephalopathy and Astrocyte Senescence
    • Authors: Boris Görg; Ayşe Karababa, Dieter Häussinger
      Abstract: Hepatic Encephalopathy (HE) is a severe complication of acute or chronic liver diseases with a broad spectrum of neurological symptoms including motor disturbances and cognitive impairment of different severity. Contrary to former beliefs, a growing number of studies suggest that cognitive impairment may not fully reverse after an acute episode of overt HE in patients with liver cirrhosis. The reasons for persistent cognitive impairment in HE are currently unknown but recent observations raise the possibility that astrocyte senescence may play a role here.

  • Systems Challenges of Hepatic Carcinomas: A Review
    • Authors: Dhatri Madduru; Johny Ijaq, Sujata Dhar, Saumyadip Sarkar, Naresh Poondla, Partha S. Das, Silvia Vasquez, Prashanth Suravajhala
      Abstract: Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) is ubiquitous in its prevalence in most of the developing countries. In the era of systems biology, multi-omics has evinced an extensive approach to define the underlying mechanism of disease progression. HCC is a multifactorial disease and the investigation of progression of liver cirrhosis becomes much extensive with cultivating omics approaches. We have performed a comprehensive review about such challenges in multi-omics approaches that are concerned to identify the immunological, genetics and epidemiological factors associated with HCC.

  • Chemical Analysis of Weight Loss Herbal Supplement Safe Lean™ Associated
           With Acute Liver Injury – A Concern for Spurious Drug, Misbranding and
           Adulteration
    • Authors: Cyriac A. Philips; Philip Augustine
      Abstract: Liver injury due to herbal and dietary supplements are well described in literature and its incidence has been on the rise in the past decade. Labelling an herbal product as non-medicinal and as a supplement precludes protocols needed for testing, trials and marketing criteria. This has led to rampant use of clinically unproven multi-herb-based drugs use for a myriad of lifestyle diseases. In this report, we discuss a new dietary weight loss supplement, Safe Lean™ that was found to be the cause of liver injury in a young obese woman, that resolved after discontinuation, and discuss current literature on component, toxicology and chemical analysis of the offending drug.

  • Primary Hepatic Leiomyosarcoma: Histopathologist's Perspective of a Rare
           Case
    • Authors: Suvradeep Mitra; Sahaj Rathi, Uma Debi, Radha K. Dhiman, Ashim Das
      Abstract: Primary hepatic leiomyosarcoma is a rare primary mesenchymal tumor of the liver requiring exclusion of any other primary site of origin and histological and immunohistochemical exclusion of other hepatic/extrahepatic tumors with spindle cell morphology. Only about 70 cases are reported in the English literature and many of these tumors have predisposing conditions in the form of immunosuppression or associated malignancies. The occurrence of this tumor in the immunocompetent individual is also known.

  • Methods for Studying Gut Microbiota: A Primer for Physicians
    • Authors: Aditya N. Sarangi; Amit Goel, Rakesh Aggarwal
      Abstract: Human gastrointestinal tract contains a large variety of microbes, in particular bacteria. Studies in recent years have strongly suggested a role for these microbes, collectively referred to as gut microbiota, in the maintenance of homeostasis during health. In addition, alterations in gut microbiota have been reported in several diseases, including those related to the gastrointestinal tract and several systemic conditions, and are believed to play a pathogenetic role in at least some of these.

  • Prognostic Implications of Minimal/Covert Hepatic Encephalopathy:
           Large-scale Validation Cohort Studies
    • Authors: Christopher R. Flud; Andres Duarte-Rojo
      Abstract: Minimal or Covert Hepatic Encephalopathy (MHE/CHE), the preclinical phase of Hepatic Encephalopathy (HE), is strongly associated with poorer Quality of Life (QOL), Overt HE (OHE), and death. Several diagnostic tests have been developed that have prognostic value in predicting clinical outcomes such as OHE, cirrhosis progression, and death. However, dispute among clinicians and HE researchers have kept its application largely underutilized. Current issues contributing to the confusion include: lack of a formal definition for CHE, uncertainty of which diagnostic tools to use, and whether one or two abnormal tests are required for a diagnosis.

  • Rupture of Hepatocellular Carcinoma: A Review of Literature
    • Authors: Srimanta K. Sahu; Yogesh K. Chawla, Radha K. Dhiman, Virendra Singh, Ajay Duseja, Sunil Taneja, Naveen Kalra, Ujjwal Gorsi
      Abstract: Approximately 700,000 people die of Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) each year worldwide, making it the third leading cause of cancer related deaths. Rupture is a potentially life-threatening complication of HCC. The incidence of HCC rupture is higher in Asia and Africa than in Europe. In Asia approximately 10% of patients with a diagnosis of HCC die due to rupture each year. Spontaneous rupture is the third most common cause of death due to HCC after tumor progression and liver failure. The diagnosis of rupture in patients without history of cirrhosis or HCC may be difficult.

  • MHE Testing in Real World Scenario—A Mini-review
    • Authors: Mette M. Lauridsen; Hendrik Vilstrup
      Abstract: Professional MHE awareness is high but when it comes to psychometric testing for MHE the real world scenario is characterized by hesitation and testing is offered only to selected cirrhosis patients. The hesitation is rooted in doubts about which tests to use, lack of knowledge about treatment benefits, and uncertainty about the tests’ ability to identify patients who will benefit from anti-HE treatment. Thus, the majority of MHE patients do not receive the available efficient anti-HE treatment.

  • Radiological Intervention for Shunt Related Encephalopathy
    • Authors: Silvia Nardelli; Stefania Gioia, Lorenzo Ridola, Oliviero Riggio
      Abstract: Hepatic Encephalopathy (HE) is a neuropsychiatric syndrome that occurs in up to 30% of patients with cirrhosis. HE may be a consequence of pure liver failure, as in patients with fulminant hepatitis, or of the combination of liver failure and portal-systemic shunting, as in patients with liver cirrhosis. Several clinical and pathophysiologic observations suggest the importance of portal-systemic shunts in the development of HE. Episodes of HE are usually related to precipitating events, such as infections or gastrointestinal bleeding; a minority of cirrhotic patients experienced a chronic HE, refractory to standard medical treatment.

  • Hepatic Encephalopathy and Sarcopenia: Two Faces of the Same Metabolic
           Alteration
    • Authors: Barbara Lattanzi; Daria D’Ambrosio, Manuela Merli
      Abstract: Sarcopenia is an important burden in liver cirrhosis representing a negative prognostic factor for mortality. Moreover, sarcopenia is an independent predictor of complications in patients with liver cirrhosis, including Hepatic Encephalopathy (HE). An association between sarcopenia and HE in liver cirrhosis has been reported in recent studies, indeed both these complications often affect patients with advanced liver cirrhosis and may exert a synergic effect in deteriorating patients’ outcome. Episodes of HE occur more often in patients with muscle depletion.

  • Neurological Monitoring in Acute Liver Failure
    • Authors: Mohammed F. Sheikh; Nazri Unni, Banwari Agarwal
      Abstract: Cerebral oedema and Intracranial Hypertension (ICH) are serious complications of acute liver failure affecting approximately 30% of patients, resulting in neurological injury or death. Multiple pathogenetic mechanisms contribute to the pathogenesis of HE including circulating neurotoxins such as ammonia, systemic and neuro-inflammation, infection and cerebral hyperaemia due to loss of cerebral vascular autoregulation. Early recognition and diagnosis is often difficult as clinical signs of elevated Intracranial Pressure (ICP) are not uniformly present and maybe masked by other organ support.

  • Bile Acids in Hepatic Encephalopathy
    • Authors: Sharon DeMorrow
      Abstract: Hepatic encephalopathy describes the array of neurological complications that arise due to liver insufficiency and/or portal-systemic shunt. The pathogenesis of hepatic encephalopathy shares a longstanding association with hyperammonemia and inflammation. Recently, aberrant bile acid signaling has been implicated in the development of key features of hepatic encephalopathy due to acute liver failure including neuronal dysfunction, neuroinflammation and blood–brain barrier permeability. This review summarizes the findings of recent studies demonstrating a role for bile acids in hepatic encephalopathy and speculates on the possible downstream consequences of bile acid signaling.

  • Genetic and Epigenetic Culprits in the Pathogenesis of Nonalcoholic Fatty
           Liver Disease
    • Authors: Alexander J. Kovalic; Pratik Banerjee, Quynh T. Tran, Ashwani K. Singal, Sanjaya K. Satapathy
      Abstract: Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) constitutes a wide spectrum of liver pathology with hepatic steatosis at the core of this pathogenesis. Variations of certain genetic components have demonstrated increased susceptibility for hepatic steatosis. Therefore, these inciting variants must be further characterized in order to ultimately provide effective, targeted therapies for NAFLD and will be the focus of this review. Several genetic variants revealed an association with NAFLD through Genome-wide Association Study, meta-analyses, and retrospective case–control studies.

    • Authors: Naveen Kalra; Pankaj Gupta, Manphool Singhal, Rajesh Gupta, Vikas Gupta, Radhika Srinivasan, Bhagwant R. Mittal, Radha K. Dhiman, Niranjan Khandelwal
      Abstract: Gallbladder Carcinoma (GBCA) is the most common biliary tract malignancy. As the disease is often diagnosed clinically in an advanced stage, the survival rates are dismal. Imaging studies allow for an early diagnosis of malignancy, though the findings may be indistinguishable from non-malignant disease processes affecting the gallbladder. Attempts have been made to make a specific diagnosis of GBCA at an early stage on imaging studies. Ultrasonography (US) is the most commonly employed technique for gallbladder evaluation.

  • Percutaneous Transhepatic Approach for Recanalization of Superior
           Mesenteric and Portal Vein in a Patient With Pancreatic Neuroendocrine
           Tumor Presenting With Bleeding Duodenal Varices: A Brief Case Report
    • Authors: Ajit Yadav; Gaurav Gangwani, Nitin Mishra, Arun Gupta
      Abstract: Occlusion of Portal Vein (PV) and Superior Mesenteric Vein (SMV) is a known effect of local infiltration by pancreatic or mesenteric neuroendocrine tumors. Venous occlusion leads to formation of collateral pathways to restore hepatopetal flow in main PV and these collateral pathways can be seen in the form of ectopic (duodenal or jejunal) varices. We present a case of bleeding duodenal varices secondary to SMV occlusion by a locally infiltrating pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor which was successfully treated by coil embolization of varices and SMV stenting of the occluded venous segment after failure of endoscopic glue injection.

  • How to Design a Multicenter Clinical Trial in Hepatic Encephalopathy
    • Authors: Lorenzo Ridola; Silvia Nardelli, Stefania Gioia, Oliviero Riggio
      Abstract: The design of clinical trials on Hepatic Encephalopathy (HE) is not an easy task, in fact there are several issues related to the performance of clinical trials in HE that have impeded progress in the field, mainly because most of the studies on HE therapy were performed before the era of rigorous Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs). In this review we discuss the major problems affecting previously published trials on HE treatments aiming to provide evidences, suggestions and indications to prepare well designed RCTs in three different settings: (1) management of hospitalized patients with episodic HE; (2) secondary prophylaxis in patients following an episode of HE; and (3) management of minimal/covert HE.

      Abstract: There has been significant improvement in understanding the etiology and management of Budd-Chiari Syndrome (BCS). Patients with chronic or acute-on-chronic BCS need radiological interventions in the form of angioplasty, hepatic vein/inferior vena cava stenting or Transjugular Intrahepatic Portosystemic Shunt (TIPS). Data regarding the long term follow up of patients undergoing TIPS is limited. We thus prospectively followed-up BCS patients who underwent TIPS at our center.

           Virus (HCV) Glycoproteins: An in silico Approach
    • Authors: Anoop Kumar; Roma Pandey, Inderjit S. Yadav, Mausumi Bharadwaj
      Abstract: Chronic infection with Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) poses a major risk for liver disease like cirrhosis, liver failure and hepatocellular carcinoma. In terms of percentage, the prevalence of HCV in India was found to be low to moderate (1–1.5%), but in terms of sheer numbers, India has a significant number of global HCV patients. Presently, HCV can be treated with direct acting-antibody drugs but there is no prophylactic or therapeutic vaccine available against it. In HCV infection, T- and B-cell immunity is important for clearing the virus.

  • De Novo Autoimmune Hepatitis After Living Donor Liver Transplantation: A
           Series of 4 Cases
    • Authors: Narendra S. Choudhary; Sanjiv Saigal, Dheeraj Gautam, Neeraj Saraf, Arvinder S. Soin
      Abstract: While Autoimmune Hepatitis (AIH) may recur in patients after liver transplant, an AIH like presentation (positive auto antibodies, raised immunoglobulin G, raised transaminases and histology showing plasma cell rich infiltrate) may also occur in liver transplant recipients who had transplant for some other disease, called De novo Autoimmune Hepatitis (DAIH). A timely diagnosis and treatment can prevent further graft dysfunction. We report 4 cases of DAIH after living donor liver transplantation.

  • Recovery of the Cholangiocytes After Ischemia and Reperfusion Injury:
           Ultra-Structural, Hystological and Molecular Assessment in Rats
    • Authors: Thiago P.A. Aloia; Bruno Cogliati, Janaina M. Monteiro, Anna C.K. Goldberg, Paolo R. de Oliveira Salvalaggio
      Abstract: Ischemia–reperfusion (I/R) injury of the liver is a common area of interest to transplant and hepatic surgery. Nevertheless, most of the current knowledge of I/R of the liver derives from the hepatocyte and little is known of what happens to the cholangiocytes. Herein, we assess the sequence of early events involved in the I/R injury of the cholangiocytes.

      Abstract: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a major public health challenge in Cameroon with over three million people infected. Government efforts to improve care and treatment are unsatisfactory and need to be assessed. We aimed at studying the several steps along the HCV continuum of care in one of two hepatitis treatment centers in Cameroon.

  • Biopsy Proven Fibrosis in Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease: An Analysis
           of Risk Factors
    • Authors: Kaumudee Pattnaik; Pallavi Bhuyan, Ayaskant Singh, Shivaram P. Singh, Preetam Nath, Sanjib Kar, Bijay Misra, Jayashree Rath
      Abstract: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is emerging as an important cause of liver disease in India. NAFLD is characterized by hepatic steatosis in absence of a significant alcohol use or other known liver disease. Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a progressive form of NAFLD which deserves particular attention because it is more prone for development of fibrosis. Liver biopsy is the gold standard for diagnosis of NASH by evaluating necroinflammatory activity and stages of fibrosis. The aim of the study was to analyze liver biopsy specimens and identify risk factors associated with fibrosis in patients of NAFLD in eastern coastal India.

  • Hepatitis C Virus Infection and Vaccine Development
    • Authors: Xuan Guo; Jin-Yi Zhong, Jun-Wen Li
      First page: 195
      Abstract: In the twenty-seven years since the discovery of hepatitis C virus (HCV) the majority of individuals exposed to HCV establish a persistent infection, which is a leading cause of chronic liver disease, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. In developed nations, the cure rates of HCV infection could be over 90% with direct-acting antiviral (DAA) regimens, which has made the great progress in global eradication. However, the cost of these treatments is so expensive that the patients in developing nations, where the disease burden is the most severe, could not afford it, which highly restricted its access.

  • Leucopenia: A Rare Extrahepatic Manifestation of Acute Hepatitis A
    • Authors: Ankur Gupta; Priyanka Jain
      First page: 215
      Abstract: Hepatitis A infection is a common cause of viral hepatitis in developing world. It is acquired by feco-oral transmission. Patients usually have self-limited disease with uneventful recovery. Extrahepatic manifestations of acute hepatitis A are uncommon and include rash, arthralgias and other rare ones. Hematologic effects include thrombocytopenia and rarely red cell aplasia and aplastic anemia. We recently came across a case of a young female who presented with prodromal symptoms with isolated leucopenia.
