Intervention on Spontaneous Splenorenal Shunt May Decrease the Incidence of Acute Kidney Injury After Liver Transplant.
CONCLUSIONS: Peritransplant interventions for spontaneous splenorenal shunt may reduce posttransplant acute kidney injury. In patients without intervention, spontaneous splenorenal shunt predominantly persisted 1 year posttransplant. PMID: 32039670 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: LB is widely used in clinical practice as an irreplaceable diagnostic tool, even in the era of noninvasiveness. Ultrasonography-guided LB can be performed safely in patients with liver cirrhosis. PMID: 32447878 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Jeong C, Kim HJ, Lee S, Kang MI, Ha J Abstract Purpose: Denosumab is a monoclonal antibody that prevents the development of osteoclasts. The effect of denosumab in solid organ transplant recipients has been elucidated, but its effect in haematopoietic stem cell transplantation recipients has not been studied yet. The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness and safety of denosumab in haematopoietic stem cell transplantation recipients. Methods: We retrospectively evaluated 33 female patients with osteoporosis (mean age 52.6 ± 9.8 years) following allogeneic haematopoiet...
Authors: Verma B, Wesa A Abstract The clinical success of immune checkpoint modulators and the development of next-generation immune-oncology (IO) agents underscore the need for robust preclinical models to evaluate novel IO therapeutics. Human immune system (HIS) mouse models enable in vivo studies in the context of the HIS via a human tumor. The immunodeficient mouse strains NOG (Prkdcscid Il2rgtm1Sug ) and triple-transgenic NOG-EXL [Prkdcscid Il2rgtm1Sug Tg (SV40/HTLV-IL3, CSF2)], which expresses human IL-3 and GM-CSF, allow for human CD34+ hematopoietic stem cell (huCD34+ HSC) engraftment and multilineage immun...
Conclusions: Maternal health risks were associated with increased adult preventive visits, but 38% of dyads had no adult preventive visits in the year following birth. Most dyads had more opportunities for preventive care in pediatric settings than adult settings.
Conclusion The long-term treatment of NAFLD complicated by T2DM using an SGLT2i is associated with long-term improvement in liver histopathology despite the worsening of clinical features. PMID: 32448832 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Kimura N, Tsuchiya A, Oda C, Kimura A, Hosaka K, Tominaga K, Hayashi K, Abé T, Umezu H, Terai S Abstract A 75-year-old woman with liver cirrhosis was admitted for treatment of portal vein thrombosis (PVT). Computed tomography (CT) showed PVT, massive ascites, and multiple abdominal organ embolism. Blood tests revealed a decreased liver function (Child-Pugh grade C). Language impairment followed by progressive left hemi-paralysis was subsequently detected. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed multiple small acute cerebral infarctions and, on CT, a 30-mm bladder tumour; a biopsy specimen examination sh...
