Effect of resveratrol on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

Effect of resveratrol on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Exp Ther Med. 2019 Jul;18(1):559-565 Authors: Theodotou M, Fokianos K, Moniatis D, Kadlenic R, Chrysikou A, Aristotelous A, Mouzouridou A, Diakides J, Stavrou E Abstract The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of a micronized formulation of trans-resveratrol in humans with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Trans-Resveratrol has been used in the form of micronized formulation, which is better absorbed, has strong antioxidants effects, is more effective than plain resveratrol formulations and is circulated on the market as a food supplement. Resveratrol (3,5,4'-trihydroxy-trans-stilbene) is a stilbenoid and a phytoalexin produced by several plants. NAFLD is an increasing clinical problem involving the liver for which effective treatments are required. The present study was based on two patient groups. The study, which commenced on April 2013 and finished on April 2015, included 44 patients, aged 29-70 years, with an average weight of 84.6 kg (n=22 per group; 28 men and 16 women) who were randomly assigned to groups and given 50 mg Evelor capsule (n=22) and 200 mg Evelor H tablet (n=22) correspondingly on a daily basis. The patients were followed up for 6 months. Quantity fat measurements, with ultrasound on the liver and kidney, were carried out. There was an initial measurement (time 1) and one after six months (time 2). The study results showed the effects of Trans-res...

Abstract Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the leading cause of diffuse liver disease. An accurate estimate of the fat in the liver is important in the diagnostic work-up of patients with NAFLD because the degree of liver steatosis is linked to the metabolic syndrome and the cardiovascular risk. Ultrasound (US) B-mode imaging allows to subjectively estimate the fatty infiltration in the liver; however, it has a low performance for the detection of mild steatosis. Quantitative US is based on the analysis of the radiofrequency echoes detected by an US system, and it allows to calculate a backscatter coeff...

Conclusions: The constantly increasing prevalence of NAFLD in the general population can contribute to a growing role of NAFLD/NASH in HCC epidemiology. Moreover, some particular challenges specific for patients with liver steatosis may impede proper HCC diagnosis, treatment and follow-up. PMID: 31631714 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractObjectiveTo evaluate the association between high uric acid (UA), reduced estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in outpatient children and adolescents with overweight (OW) or obesity (OB).MethodsAnthropometric, biochemical, hepatic ultrasound and eGFR data were available from 2565 young people with OW/OB (age 5 –18 years). eGFR was calculated using the Schwartz’s bedside formula and reduced eGFR (ReGFR+) was defined by a value

We investigated whether ultrasound (US) could quantify steatosis and fibrosis in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Estimates of fat by gray-scale, hepatorenal index (HRI) and fibrosis by acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) were made using the interquartile range (IQR)/median for ARFI quality. Biopsy was the gold standard. US fat assessment correlated with histologic grade and predicted steatosis. HRI predicted steatosis but did not improve accuracy. ARFI of good quality was highly sensitive toward severe fibrosis.

Abstract Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and nonalcoholic fatty liver (NAFLD) share similar clinical presentations including obesity, insulin resistance (IR), and metabolic abnormality. The predictive factors of NAFLD in women with PCOS and specifically in Asian women are not well established. Associated factors for NAFLD assessed by ultrasound (US) among a group of PCOS and healthy women were determined and diagnostic accuracy between US and transient elastography (TE) for NAFLD was compared and correlated. Sixty-three women with ages ranging from 20 to 40 years participated in the present cross-sectional study....

Authors: Mohammadifard M, Saremi Z, Rastgoo M, Akbari E Abstract There is evidence that infection by H. pylori can have a critical proportion in the development of hepatocyte injury and both noncancerous and malignant liver conditions including non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). This is attributed to several mechanisms, the most important one being the toxic products of the bacterium H. pylori and oxidative injury for hepatocytes which promotes hepatic injury. The present research was aimed at determining the association between H. pylori infection and the prevalence of NAFLD in Birjand, Iran. Two groups we...
