AbstractPurpose of ReviewDrug-induced liver injury (DILI) can present with a variable clinical and pathological phenotype and can be classified using liver enzymes as hepatocellular, cholestatic, or a mixed pattern. The cholestatic pattern has been considered amongst the spectrum of direct liver damage at the microscopic level, but recently, bile duct injury, as a manifestation of DILI, has emerged as a distinct entity, and this review examines several examples of biliary tract abnormalities due to DILI from a clinical, radiologic, and pathologic perspective.Recent FindingsCase series and reports have emerged over the last...

ConclusionThis research is the first to clarify that iridoid glycosides and phenol compounds are the substance basis of the hepatoprotective activity of the EAFVC. Establish rapid and effective method for the determination of main seven compounds, which is vital for the quality control of V. ciliata. These main compounds could be chosen to the analytical marker of V. ciliata. The strong activity of EAFVC and its isolated compounds on relieving the drug-induced liver injury provided the further scientific data for the traditional use and deep development of this Tibetan Medicine. In addition, PASS Online prediction, an effe...

Science is just beginning to understand how important your mitochondria are to warding off the diseases of aging. And, as usual, mainstream medicine is lagging way behind. Along with your telomeres, the cellular time keepers at the ends of your chromosomes, your mitochondria are another key component of the anti-aging equation. You see, these tiny organelles in your cells are the power plants that turn fuel into energy for your body. Healthy mitochondria keep you young and energetic.  Research shows that damaged mitochondria can lead to: Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder; Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s d...

Abstract Marginal zone lymphomas (MZL) represent around 8 % of all non-Hodgkin lymphomas. During the last decades a number of studies have addressed the mechanisms underlying the disease development. Extranodal MZL lymphoma usually arises in mucosal sites where lymphocytes are not normally present from a background of either autoimmune processes, such as Hashimoto thyroiditis or Sjögren syndrome or chronic infectious conditions. In the context of a persistent antigenic stimulation, successive genetic abnormalities can progressively hit a B-cell clone among the reactive B-cells of the chronic inflammatory tiss...
