Because of the lack of adequate organs, the number of patients with end-stage liver diseases, acute liver failure or hepatic malignancies waiting for liver transplantation is constantly increasing. Accepting aged liver grafts is one of the strategies expanding the donor pool to ease the discrepancy between the growing demand and the limited supply of donor organs. However, recipients of organs from old donors may show an increased posttransplantation morbidity and mortality due to enhanced ischemia-reperfusion injury. Energy metabolism, inflammatory response, and autophagy are 3 critical processes which are involved in the...

ConclusionsA significant subset of transplant recipients showed persistent symptoms of anxiety and depression from before to 2 years after transplantation. These results emphasize the importance of psychosocial care in the transplant population. Objective The aims of the study were to examine whether distinct trajectories of anxious and depressive symptoms are present among liver transplant recipients from before transplantation to 2 years afterward, to identify associated demographic, clinical, and individual characteristics, and to examine the influence of distinct trajectories on outcomes. Methods A prospective, ...

Abstract While much of the discussion regarding expanding the donor pool for pediatric liver transplantation has surrounded the use of technical variant grafts, little attention has been directed toward changes in the deceased donor population. The aim of this study was to investigate trends in the circumstance of the death of deceased donors used for pediatric liver transplantation. All pediatric liver transplant recipients transplanted between 2002 and 2015 were identified in the UNOS database and were categorized based on the donor circumstance of death. There was no significant correlation between year of transplantati...

A number of common herbal supplements, including green tea and Ginkgo biloba, can interact with prescription medications, according to a new research review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology. These interactions can make drugs less effective—and may even be dangerous or deadly. Doctors know that herbs can affect medication regimens, wrote the researchers, from the South African Medical Research Council, in their new paper. But because people often don’t disclose to their healthcare providers what over-the-counter drugs and supplements they’re taking, it’s difficult for scienti...

Conclusion: Myeloid Notch1 deficiency activates the ras homolog gene family member A/ROCK pathway and exacerbates hepatocellular injury by inhibiting transcriptional repressor Hes1 and inducing scaffold protein JSAP1 in IR‐triggered liver inflammation; our findings underscore the crucial role of the Notch–Hes1 axis as a novel regulator of innate immunity‐mediated inflammation and imply the therapeutic potential for the management of organ IR injury in transplant recipients.
