Researchers Grow Functioning Liver Tissue in Mice

WEDNESDAY, July 19, 2017 -- Researchers say they were able to coax tiny " seeds " of liver tissue into fully functioning livers in mice. If this approach works in people, it could help reduce long wait lists for liver transplants. It might also...

Conclusions Older donor age and prolonged warm ischaemia time are independent predictors of HCV recurrence after LDLT, and early treatment with the direct-acting sofosbuvir is helpful in resolving the problem of post-LT HCV recurrence.

We examined data from various studies in India and elsewhere using generic DAAs, and evaluated whether they are equally efficacious as the branded drugs. Since the availability of generic DAAs in the Indian market, there is a lot of real life data as well as prospective studies in special patient populations such as hematological disorders (thalassemia and hemophilia), chronic kidney disease, hemodialysis patients, post liver and renal transplant patients on immunosuppression, intravenous drug users, confections and other high risk groups. Control of HCV infection in India requires multi pronged approach. There is a need t...

Authors: Lauterio A, De Carlis R, Di Sandro S, Ferla F, Buscemi V, De Carlis L Abstract The place of liver transplantation in the treatment of severe iatrogenic liver injuries has not yet been widely discussed in the literature. Bile duct injuries during cholecystectomy represent the leading cause of liver transplantation in this setting, while other indications after abdominal surgery are less common. Urgent liver transplantation for the treatment of severe iatrogenic liver injury may-represent a surgical challenge requiring technically difficult and time consuming procedures. A debate is ongoing on the need for c...

Authors: Biswas S, Ghose S Abstract Several investigations have revealed that liver diseases exhibit gender biases, but identifying the root causes of such biases has been challenging. Evidence of gender differences in liver function is present from the early stage of embryonic development. The differences in access to care and treatment as well as diagnostic deliberation may affect gender-specific differences in liver disease progression. Apart from the pathogenesis, xenobiotic metabolism, immune responses, gene expressions, mitochondrial function, lipid composition, and enzyme activities also differ in this sexua...

Publication date: Available online 21 September 2017 Source:Operations Research for Health Care Author(s): Wen-Hsin Feng, Zhouyang Lou, Nan Kong, Hong Wan Many critical or even life-saving healthcare resources such as cadaveric donor organs are scarce. Upon procurement of such resources, some priority rule is applied to make the allocation decisions. In this paper, we consider the problem of optimally designing a single-score based priority rule to rank patients for each unit of available resource in real-time. We address the cases where multiple potentially conflicting objectives are simultaneously considered and the opt...
