CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that GL prevents inflammation in liver macrophages via inhibition of HMGB1. GL restrains inflammation and cell apoptosis by inhibiting HMGB1 via PI3K/mTOR signaling pathway in ALI. GL may become a novel drug for the therapy of ALI in the future.

ConclusionsWe identified postmarketing cases of serious acute drug-induced liver injury causally associated with ulipristal used to treat uterine fibroids, some with outcomes of liver transplant and/or death. The presence of common structural features identified with certain selective progesterone receptor modulators in the treatment of chronic conditions may indicate a liability for idiosyncratic drug-induced liver injury.

In recent years academic interest has grown in the study of the gut microbiome. Researchers are making inroads into understanding the considerable influence of these microbial populations over the progression of health and aging. The gut microbiome may be as influential as physical activity in these matters. The balance of microbial populations shifts unfavorably over time, for reasons that are yet to be fully mapped and understood. This leads to greater numbers of inflammatory microbes, or those that produce harmful byproducts, and fewer microbes that produce beneficial metabolites. Researchers have identified some of the...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewPatients with congenital heart disease (CHD) are living longer due to advances in cardiovascular medicine. We sought to review the physiology and evaluation of these CHD patients who demonstrate the emerging need for combined heart and liver transplantation.Recent FindingsThe principal population affected by failing cardiohepatic physiology are those with single-ventricle physiology palliated to Fontan. Patients are evaluated by a multidisciplinary team including transplant cardiology and hepatology to determine the degree of liver damage and necessity of combined heart and liver transplantation. W...
