Authors: Kwon YD, Ko KO, Lim JW, Cheon EJ, Song YH, Yoon JM Abstract BACKGROUND: Transient elastography (FibroScan®) is a non-invasive and rapid method for assessing liver fibrosis. While the feasibility and usefulness of FibroScan® have been proven in adults, few studies have focused on pediatric populations. We aimed to determine the feasibility and usefulness of FibroScan® in Korean children. METHODS: FibroScan® examinations were performed in 106 children (age, 5-15 years) who visited the Konyang University Hospital between June and September 2018. Liver steatosis was measured in terms of the...

Conclusions: Among NBNC-HCC patients, heavy alcohol use or any other identifiable cause was not found in 38.0%. These NBNC-NA-NO HCC patients showed a high prevalence of HBcIgG positivity and metabolic risk factors, suggesting that prior hepatitis B virus infection and metabolic risk factors may be major contributing factors in the hepatocarcinogenesis in NBNC-NA-NO patients.

AbstractPrevalence of elevated blood pressure in pediatric population has been increasing worldwide. Thus, the aim of this study was to examine whether the triglycerides and glucose (TyG) index is associated with the presence of prehypertension or hypertension in children and adolescents. Apparently healthy children aged 6 to 15  years were enrolled in a population-based cross-sectional study. Participants were allocated into groups with normal blood pressure (NBP), prehypertension, and hypertension. Smoking, alcohol intake, pregnancy, previous diagnosis of diabetes, kidney, hepatic, or endocrine diseases were exclusi...

We report a case of hairy leukoplakia that developed in a patient undergoing anti-retroviral therapy. A 53-year old white male presented with mild erythema in the anterior maxillary gingiva and was managed with clobetasol gel, after excluding the possibility of candidiasis. Patient's medical history was significant for HIV, bipolar disorder, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, chronic bronchitis, smoking, and alcohol. His medications included Androgel, Axiron, atorvastatin, bupropion, clonazepam, finasteride, hydrochlorothiazide, lamotrigine, lisinopril, pantoprazole, Prezcobix, Trazadone, Truvada (200 mg emticitabine, ...

This study was a before ‐and‐after study that used data from 50 pharmacists who participated in the Community Pharmacists Assist for Blood Pressure (COMPASS‐BP) study, which was an interventional study that was conducted in Japan to evaluate the effects of lifestyle support services provided to hypertension patients. The pharmacists received 4 h of training before the study was initiated to learn how to quickly provide patients with guidance about diet and exercise and tobacco and alcohol consumption. During the interventional period, each pharmacist provided concise lifestyle guidance to 1–3 hypertension ...

CONCLUSIONS: NODAT, recurrent and de novo NAFLD are common after LT but are not associated with signs of graft dysfunction, possibly due to the low frequency of IR and NASH. No correlation is observed between NAFLD and NODAT, MS, hypertriglyceridemia, obesity and IR. β-cell dysfunction and diabetes, however, are seen in most of the patients, possibly due to calcineurin inhibitor toxicity.
