Authors: Sun L, Yin H, Liu M, Xu G, Zhou X, Ge P, Yang H, Mao Y Abstract Albumin is the most abundant plasma protein and albumin infusion is commonly used. Conventionally, the biologic and therapeutic effects of albumin have been thought to be due to its oncotic properties. However, albumin has a variety of biologic functions, including molecular transport, anti-oxidation, anti-inflammation, endothelial stabilization, anti-thrombotic effects, and the adjustment of capillary permeability. Despite this, the functions of albumin have not been thoroughly investigated. Recent studies have shown non-alcoholic fatty liver...

AbstractIn the present work, QSAR (quantitative structure −activity relationship) analysis has been executed for RG7834 analogs. RG7834 is a first-in-class selective and orally available dihydroquinolizinone (DHQ)-based small molecule Hepatitis B virus expression inhibitor. OECD’s guidelines have been followed for developing multiple QSAR models for He patitis B virus expression inhibitory activity of 73 RG7834 analogs. The present multiple QSAR models are not only easily interpretable but possess high external predictive ability, as well. These are effective in the recognition of many privileged and underprivi...

Drug-Induced Liver Injury (DILI) is a challenging clinical problem for which currently, there are no specific diagnostic markers, except for few exceptions [1,2]. Here we report a case of ticlopidine-induced cholestatic hepatitis, for which histologic immunoreactivity to the Multidrug Resistance-associated Protein 2 (MRP2), assisted in the diagnosis of DILI, thus providing new insight into both the pathogenic mechanisms and the diagnostic process of DILI.

ConclusionsThe tolerability of the combined checkpoint blockade in UM may possibly be better than in trials on cutaneous melanoma. This study implies that combined checkpoint blockade represents the hitherto most effective treatment option available for metastatic UM available outside of clinical trials.

AbstractBackground and AimsThe features of non-viral, nonalcohol hepatocellular carcinoma (NBNC-HCC) remain elusive. The aim of this study was to investigate this clinical characteristics and overall survival of NBNC-HCC compared to hepatitis B- (HBV-HCC) and hepatitis C-related (HCV-HCC) HCC.MethodsWe analyzed the etiologies, fibrosis stages, clinical data, and outcomes of newly diagnosed patients with HCC.ResultsA total of 1777 HCC patients were recruited, including 332 patients with NBNC-HCC, 682 patients with HBV-HCC, 680 patients with HCV-HCC, and 83 patients with HBV/HCV HCC. Patients with NBNC-HCC were older (69.9 &...
