Hepatitis B virus-associated glomerulonephritis in HBsAg serological-negative patients
Thu, 27 Nov 2014 18:53:01 +0100 | European Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology
ConclusionWe propose to use the HBV marker in renal tissues as a new diagnostic criterion for HBV-GN. If MN patients have HBV marker positivity in renal tissues, HBV-GN can be diagnosed even without HBsAg in the serum. This would improve the diagnostic accuracy and potential treatment efficiency.

ConclusionAllowing a rapid and sustained control of HBV replication, entecavir seems to be a promising drug for first-line prompt treatment of HBV reactivation in patients undergoing chemotherapy for hematological as well as solid organ malignancies, with safe long-term use enabling maintenance of resolved hepatitis.

Ten-point plan to tackle liver disease published
Thu, 27 Nov 2014 11:30:00 +0100 | NHS News Feed
"Doctors call for tougher laws on alcohol abuse to tackle liver disease crisis," The Guardian reports. But this is just one of 10 recommendations for tackling the burden of liver disease published in a special report in The Lancet.The report paints a grim picture of an emerging crisis in liver disease in the UK, saying it is one of the few countries in Europe where liver disease and deaths have actually increased rapidly over the last 30 years. It concludes with 10 recommendations to tackle the burden of liver disease.The media has approached the recommendations from many different angles, with many sources only reporting on one, not all, of the recommendations. For example, BBC News and The Daily Telegraph focused on the call for improved diagnosis in primary care: "GPs sho...

Genetic characterization of hepadnaviruses associated with histopathological changes in the liver of duck and goose embryos
Thu, 27 Nov 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Veterinary Microbiology
Publication date: 5 December 2014 Source:Veterinary Microbiology, Volume 174, Issues 3–4 Author(s): Marina Biđin , Marina Tišljar , Zdenko Biđin , Ivana Lojkić , Darko Majnarić Avian hepadnaviruses are etiological agents of hepatitis B, that has been identified primarily in ducks, and more recently in various avian species. In this paper, 16 hepadnaviruses were detected by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in the field samples from dead embryos of commercially reared domestic duck and goose. Based on the molecular analysis of the S-protein gene sequences and phylogenetic Neighbor-joining tree, identified viruses were clustered in the same genetic group, indicating no host-related diversity. Both duck and goose-origin hepadnaviruses were grouped within the cluster consisting of “We...

Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia following immunization with the hepatitis B vaccine: another angle of the ‘autoimmune (auto-inflammatory) syndrome induced by adjuvants’ (ASIA)
Thu, 27 Nov 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Immunologic Research
This study suggests that in some cases CFS and FM can be temporally related to immunization, as part of ASIA syndrome. The appearance of adverse event during immunization, the presence of autoimmune susceptibility and higher titers of autoantibodies all can be suggested as risk factors. ASIA criteria were fulfilled in all patients eluding the plausible link between ASIA and CFS/FM. (Source: Immunologic Research)
