ConclusionRepeat hepatectomy has favorable long-term outcomes. Cirrhosis and HBV not treated with antiviral therapy were associated with immediate postoperative morbidity. Serum AFP> 20 ng/mL at first resection, PH, and GVI at recurrence are independent prognostic factors. For patients without PH, TNM staging can predict prognosis.

MarksAbstractHepatitis B and C viruses present dual considerations in rheumatic disease as both etiologic factors and important comorbidities that must be assessed and addressed. This review summarizes the link between hepatitis B and arthritis and polyarteritis nodosa as well as hepatitis C and arthritis, Sicca syndrome and cryoglobulinemic vasculitis. Recent data pertaining to the antiviral management in these conditions, especially regarding the use of the...

Background: Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is a leading cause of end-stage liver disease (ESLD) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in HIV. Factors contributing to the high rates of liver complications among HIV/HBV-coinfected individuals remain unknown. Setting: North American AIDS Cohort Collaboration on Research and Design. Methods: We performed a retrospective cohort study among HIV/HBV-coinfected patients in 10 US and Canadian cohorts of the North American AIDS Cohort Collaboration on Research and Design that validated ESLD (ascites, spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, variceal hemorrhage, and/or hepatic ence...

Authors: Sun J, Li Y, Sun X, Liu Y, Zheng D, Fan L Abstract The present cross-sectional study aimed to assess hepatic fibrosis in chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients with abdominal obesity and to explore the associated indicators. A total of 615 CHB patients were enrolled and 287 of them had abdominal obesity. The liver stiffness value was measured using Fibroscan. The diagnosis of liver fibrosis was confirmed by a liver stiffness value of>7.4 kPa, and a value of>10.6 kPa was considered to indicate advanced liver fibrosis. The Fibroscan results suggested that the liver stiffness value in patients with abdomina...

Conclusion: The current document includes general recommendations on ethical standards, use of interpreters and specific recommendations for prevention or early detection of communicable and non-communicable diseases. It may serve as a tool to ensure the fundamental right that migrant children in Europe receive a comprehensive, patient-centred health care.

Conclusions Testing for gonorrhea and chlamydia was low, particularly in jail, which was attributed to testing protocols. High proportions of PLWH tested positive for syphilis and HBV infection in both settings. The majority of patients with active STIs had a detectable HIV VL. Routine, opt-out screening for STIs for PLWH during and after incarceration has the potential to identify a high proportion of STIs and improve secondary HIV prevention.

Authors: Kwon Y, Jeong SJ Abstract Background: The seropositivity rate of antibodies against hepatitis B surface antigen (anti-HBs) is known to be ≥95% after Hepatitis B virus (HBV) vaccination during infancy. However, low or absence of anti-HBs in healthy children are discovered in many cases. Recent, studies in adults have reported that reduction in the rate of anti-HBs production is related to obesity. Purpose: The present study investigated whether body mass index (BMI) affects anti-HBs level in healthy children following three serial dose vaccination in infancy. Methods: We recruited 1200 healthy vo...
