The Comparison of Parameters of Oxidative Stress in Native Rat Livers Between Different Immunosuppressive Regimens.

CONCLUSIONS Long-lasting immunosuppressive treatment does indeed affect redox status; however, the antioxidant defenses of the liver against the effects of excess hydrogen peroxide are efficient, so the superoxide dismutase/glutathione peroxidase (SOD/GPx) and superoxide dismutase/catalase (SOD/CAT) ratios were not significant.

This study aimed to analyze clinical and laboratory parameters and their association with long-term outcomes in patients who underwent liver transplantation for hepatocellular carcinoma treatment, according to the etiology of the underlying chronic liver disease, in order to identify predictors of response to this therapeutic modality. METHODS: Demographic, clinical, and laboratory data from a cohort of 134 patients who underwent orthotopic liver transplantation for hepatocellular carcinoma treatment at a referral center in Brazil were retrospectively selected and compared according to the etiologic group of the underlying...

Background and aim: Cirrhosis is a major public health problem worldwide. The prevalence of cirrhosis is various in different geographical regions. The aim of the present study was to determine the distribution of the etiologies of cirrhosis and their proportional changes through recent 11 years in Iran. Methods: In this retrospective, observational study, the data of cirrhotic patients who have been listed for liver transplantation in the Namazi Transplant Center (Shiraz, Iran) between January 2006 and December 2016 were analyzed. Demographic and clinical data of the patients including model for end-stage liver disea...

AbstractPurposeThe correlation between right hepatic vein (RHV) diameter and inferior RHV (IRHV) incidence and that between IRHV incidence and other clinical features remain unclear. We investigated factors correlated with IRHV incidence as well as provide a simple and reliable method for predicting IRHV presence preoperatively.MethodsWe obtained computed tomography (CT) imaging data of 1980 patients from the Department of Radiology, Qingdao Municipal Hospital, from July 1, 2016, to July 1, 2017. We excluded patients with heart disease, inferior vena cava (IVC) disease, history of liver surgery or trauma, space-occupying l...

In conclusion, despite an early improvement in renal function after everolimus introduction, we found no evidence that everolimus halts the long-term mGFR decline compared to continued low-dose CNI therapy. Due to retrospective design, small sample size and heterogenous characteristics, definite conclusions require prospective studies. PMID: 32479116 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
