NAFLD: Challenges and opportunities to address the public health challenge in Latin America
Ann Hepatol. 2021 May 15;24:100359. doi: 10.1016/j.aohep.2021.100359. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTNon-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is reaching epidemic proportions worldwide. Collectively, Latin American countries have some of the highest obesity rates in the world and the fastest-growing prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Since obesity and T2DM are intrinsically linked with NAFLD, epidemiological projections are worrisome. In addition to this adverse epidemiological setting, the region of Latin America faces unique challenges and obstacles to addressing the growing burden of NAFLD. In this article, ...

Assessment of hepatic fatty acids during non-alcoholic steatohepatitis progression using magnetic resonance spectroscopy
CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that monitoring lipid composition in addition to total water/fat with MRS may yield additional insights that can be translated to non-invasively stratification of high-risk NAFLD patients.PMID:33962045 | DOI:10.1016/j.aohep.2021.100358 (Source: Annals of Hepatology)

Mineralocorticoid receptor modulation by dietary sodium influences NAFLD development in mice
Ann Hepatol. 2021 Apr 30:100357. doi: 10.1016/j.aohep.2021.100357. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Nonalcoholic-fatty-liver disease (NAFLD) is considered the hepatic manifestation of metabolic syndrome (MetS). Mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) activation is associated with increased risk of MetS but few studies have assessed the role of liver MR on NAFLD. We aimed to evaluate the effect of MR modulation by sodium intake in liver injury in experimental models of NAFLD.MATERIALS AND METHODS: C57BL/6J mice were fed either a high-fat-diet (HFD) or a choline/methionine deficient (MCD) diet with differen...
