Approach and Management of Patients with Chronic Hepatitis B and C During the Course of Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Fri, 24 Oct 2014 04:23:15 +0100 | Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
Abstract:Inflammatory bowel disease and chronic viral hepatitis are 2 distinct but common conditions throughout the world. Mostly, both need life-long follow-up. Since immunosuppressive drugs remain corner stones of inflammatory bowel disease management, one should be aware of the concomitant presence of chronic viral hepatitis in such patients to prevent serious (even fatal) outcomes. Recently, new treatment options have become available in the treatment of both inflammatory bowel disease and chronic viral hepatitis. In this review, we have discussed and summarized current treatment and follow-up strategies for those 2 important public health issues in light of available literature.

Risk factors for 1-year mortality in patients with intermediate-stage hepatocellular carcinoma treated solely with transcatheter arterial chemoembolization
Thu, 23 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Advances in Digestive Medicine
Conclusion One-year mortality in patients with intermediate-stage HCC treated solely with TACE is not uncommon. High serum AFP level (> 400 ng/mL), CTP class B cirrhosis, and tumor size are independent risk factors for 1-year mortality in those patients. (Source: Advances in Digestive Medicine)

Younger age and female sex predict a better therapeutic response in HBeAg-positive chronic hepatitis B patients to entecavir therapy
Thu, 23 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Advances in Digestive Medicine
Conclusion Two-year entecavir therapy has good biochemical and virologic responses; however, the rate of HBeAg loss is modest in HBeAg-positive CHB patients. A young age (i.e., ≤35 years) and female sex were also associated with a better serologic response. (Source: Advances in Digestive Medicine)

High pre-operative serum aminotransferase levels predict local recurrence after curative resection of hepatocellular carcinoma
Thu, 23 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Advances in Digestive Medicine
Conclusion Although this is a small-scale study, our findings could be easily applied clinically and used as readily available indicators to help the follow-up algorithm. We also suggest antiviral management as soon as possible for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma undergoing curative resection, especially those with a high preoperative aspartate aminotransferase level.

How grim is hepatocellular carcinoma?
Thu, 23 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Annals of Medicine and Surgery
Publication date: September 2014 Source:Annals of Medicine and Surgery, Volume 3, Issue 3 Author(s): Elroy P. Weledji , George Enow Orock , Marcelin N. Ngowe , Dickson Shey Nsagha Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a complex disease and a major cause of death in high endemic areas of hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. HCC has gone from being a universal death sentence to a cancer that can be prevented, detected at an early stage and effectively treated. Liver resection or tumour ablation techniques may be effective bridge to liver transplantation if they fulfill the Milan criteria. The areas of progress in HCC are in the control of HBV or HCV and the development of adjuvant or neoadjuvant therapies. (Source: Annals of Medicine and Surgery)
