AGA White Paper: Training and Implementation of Endoscopic Image Enhancement Technologies
Endoscopic image-enhancement technologies provide opportunities to visualize normal and abnormal tissues within the gastrointestinal (GI) tract in a manner that complements conventional white light endoscopic imaging. The additional information that is obtained enables the endoscopist to better identify, delineate, and characterize lesions and can facilitate targeted biopsies or, in some cases, eliminate the need to send samples for histologic analysis. Some of these technologies have been available for more than a decade, but despite this fact, there is limited use of these technologies by endoscopists. (Source: Clinical ...

A Farewell From the Board of Editors of the Blue Journal
In June 2017, our board of editors (BOE) will hand over the reins of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CGH) to Dr Fasiha Kanwal, the incoming editor-in-chief of CGH, and her BOE. This will mark the end of 5 “quick” years, during which we have been privileged to serve our readers, authors, and the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) and its members. At the risk of sounding like a cliché, this endeavor has been one of the most enjoyable and fulfilling that I have embarked on in the past several years (and yes I do have somewhat of a life otherwise!).

Validation of the Mayo Clinic Staging System in Determining Prognoses of Patients with Perihilar Cholangiocarcinoma
Most systems for staging perihilar cholangiocarcinoma (PHC) have been developed for the minority of patients with resectable disease. The recently developed Mayo Clinic system for staging PHC requires only clinical and radiological variables, but has not yet been validated. We performed a retrospective study to validate the Mayo Clinic staging system. (Source: Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology)

Gastric Cancer as Preventable Disease
Gastric cancer (GC), one of the five most common causes of cancer death, is associated with a 5-year overall survival rate less than 30%. A minority of cancers occurs as part of syndromic diseases; more than 90% of adenocarcinomas are considered as the ultimate consequence of a longstanding mucosal inflammation. H. pylori infection is the leading etiology of non-self-limiting gastritis, which may result in atrophy of the gastric mucosa and impaired acid secretion. Gastric atrophy establishes a field of cancerization prone to further molecular and phenotypic changes, possibly resulting in cancer growth. (Source: Clinical Ga...

Opioids in Gastroenterology: Treating Adverse Effects and Creating Therapeutic Benefits
The use of opioid medications on both an acute and chronic basis is ubiquitous in the U.S. As opioid receptors densely populate the gastrointestinal tract, symptoms and side effects can be expected in these patients. In the esophagus, dysmotility may result manifesting with dysphagia and a syndrome indistinguishable from primary achalasia. In the stomach, a marked delay in gastric emptying may ensue with postprandial nausea and early satiety. Postoperatively, particularly with abdominal surgery, opioid induced ileus may ensue.

Caregiver Burden in Adults with Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic condition which has a relapsing and remitting disease course. There is high degree of inpatient and outpatient health care utilization by IBD patients along with a great deal of psychosocial stress associated with the condition. Patients frequently rely on family, friends and other informal caregivers to provide medical, instrumental and emotional support. The role of caregiving for adult IBD patients can lead to significant caregiver burden. At present, there are limited data on the existence of caregiver burden in adult IBD patients.

Issue Highlights
Cross-sectional studies and clinical experience suggest there is a higher prevalence of depression and anxiety in patients with functional gastrointestinal diseases (FGID). To what extent this reflects the impact of disease symptoms on mood and whether mood disorders precede and may indeed be causally implicated in the pathogenesis of FGID has not been well established. In this issue of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Jones et  al present a study that examined the bidirectional association between mood disorders and FGID in two population-based databases.

Biopsies from Allograft Liver Contain Histologic Features of Hepatitis C Virus Infection Following Virus Eradication
Most patients, even those who have received liver transplants, achieve a sustained virologic response (SVR) to therapy for hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Little is known about the histologic features of liver biopsies collected following SVR, particularly in patients who have received liver transplants. We aimed to better characterize the histologic features of allograft liver biopsies from patients who achieved a SVR to anti-HCV therapy following liver transplantation.

Multicenter External Validation of Risk Stratification Criteria for Patients With Variceal Bleeding
Early placement of a transjugular intrahepatic porto-systemic shunts (TIPS) is considered the treatment of choice for patients with acute variceal bleeding (AVB) and cirrhosis who have a high risk of death (Child-Pugh class B with active bleeding at endoscopy or Child-Pugh class C). It has been proposed that patients of Child-Pugh class B, even with active bleeding, should not be considered high risk. Alternative criteria have been proposed for identification of high-risk patients, such as Child-Pugh class C with plasma level of creatinine of 1 mg/dl or more (ChildC-C1) and a model for end-stage liver disease (MELD) score ...

Promising Modalities to Identify and Monitor Eosinophilic Esophagitis
Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is an allergen-mediated condition characterized by symptoms of esophageal dysfunction and histological evidence of intense eosinophilic inflammation involving the esophagus in absence of overlapping conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease. Since the initial description as a distinct entity about two decades ago, there has been a remarkable rise in the recognition of this clinico-pathologic entity.Current approach to diagnose and monitor EoE requires repeated esophagogastroduodenoscopies (EGDs), with associated sedation/anesthesia, to visualize mucosal abnormalities, and to obtain m...

Do Shared Exposures Link the Lungs and Gut? Association Between Asthma and Inflammatory  Bowel Disease
Immune-mediated, inflammatory conditions of the gut (eg, inflammatory bowel disease [IBD]) and the lungs (eg, asthma) may be driven by common factors including the interplay between genetic risk factors and environmental exposures that impact the microbiome.1 –4 The increasing incidence of these immune-mediated conditions in recent years has been attributed frequently to the hygiene hypothesis,5 which postulates that IBD, asthma, and related immune-mediated conditions are results of improved sanitation including clean water, decreased family size, and improved living conditions.
