Role for Biochemical Assays and Kayser-Fleischer Rings in Diagnosis of Wilson's Disease
Wilson ’s disease is an autosomal recessive disorder that impairs copper homeostasis and is caused by homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations in ATP7B, which encodes a copper-transporting P-type ATPase. Patients have variable clinical manifestations and laboratory test results, resulting in diagnos tic dilemmas. We aimed to identify factors associated with symptoms and features of Wilson’s disease from a large cohort, over 15 years. (Source: Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology)

Issue Highlights
The management of patients with eosinophilic esophagitis remains challenging.1,2 In routine practice, treatment includes either swallowed steroids or dietary exclusion therapy as a first line, but many patients need chronic use of these strategies with high rates of symptom recurrence upon steroid cessation or re-introduction of culprit foods. In this issue of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Dellon and colleagues3 report on the observational phase of a randomized double-blind trial comparing oral viscous budesonide to multi-dose inhaled fluticasone for eosinophilic esophagitis.

Calculation of Stop ages for Colorectal Cancer Screening Based on Comorbidities and Screening History
Routine screening for colorectal cancer is typically recommended until age 74 years.

We investigated the effects of screening history on selection of optimal age to stop screening. (Source: Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology)

You Can ’t Have One Without the Other—Innovation and Ethical Dilemmas in Gastroenterology and Hepatology
Medical innovation and ethical dilemmas are intertwined in gastroenterology and hepatology. This narrative review explores direct-acting antiviral (DAA) therapy for hepatitis C virus (HCV) as a touchstone example of how medical innovation breeds ethical dilemmas. A few quandaries —informed consent as well as informed deferral during the first wave of DAA approvals, sobriety restrictions from payors, and high DAA costs for patients—are addressed through the lens of the foundational principles of clinical medical ethics: autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence, justice, and utility.

Should treatment indications for chronic hepatitis B be expanded?
Antiviral therapy has greatly improved the outcomes of patients with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and active liver disease or advanced fibrosis/cirrhosis. However, current treatment does not eradicate HBV and long-term treatment is needed in most patients to maintain clinical benefit. Thus, professional society guidelines do not recommend treatment of all patients with chronic HBV infection. This review article will examine evidence for and against expansion of treatment to patients in whom treatment is not recommended based on current guidelines.

Barrett ’s Epithelial Thickness, Assessed by Volumetric Laser Endomicroscopy, is Associated with Response to Radiofrequency Ablation
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is the most common treatment for flat Barrett ’s esophagus (BE), but reasons for varying outcomes are poorly understood. A recently developed contrast-enhancement algorithm allows reliable measurement of Barrett’s epithelial thickness (BET) from volumetric laser endomicroscopy (VLE) images and correlation with response to RFA. Using this al gorithm, we investigated whether patients with thicker Barrett’s mucosa are less likely to respond to RFA. In the future, this algorithm may guide choice of RFA dosing or endoscopic resection. (Source: Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology)
