BACKGROUND Decreased cardiac contractility has been observed in cirrhosis, suggesting a latent cardiomyopathy in these patients. This study was designed to evaluate left ventricular structure and function in patients with end-stage liver disease by the model for end-stage liver disease (MELD) scoring system. METHODS We recruited 82 patients (72 male, 10(More)
Many studies reported that DcR3 participated in the clinicopathological characteristics of gastrointestinal cancer, however, they all included few patients and had inconsistent results. So we conducted a meta-analysis to explore the correlation between overexpression of DcR3 and the clinicopathological characteristics of gastrointestinal cancer. Identical(More)
AIM To evaluate the prognostic ability of model for end-stage liver disease (MELD) to serum sodium (SNa) ratio (MESO) index and to compare the predictive accuracy of the MESO index with the MELD score and the modified Child-Turcotte-Pugh (CTP) score for short-term survival in cirrhotic patients. METHODS A total of 256 patients with cirrhosis were(More)
The microtubule-associated protein ASPM (abnormal spindle-like microcephaly-associated) plays an important role in spindle organization and cell division in mitosis and meiosis in lower animals, but its function in mouse oocyte meiosis has not been investigated. In this study, we characterized the localization and expression dynamics of ASPM during mouse(More)
Although a series of studies have shown that VSL#3 (L plantarum, L Bulgaricus, L casei and L. acidophilus, B breve, B longum and B infantis and S salivarius subspecies thermophilus) can exert therapeutic effects on colitis, whether heat-killed VSL#3 also can exert similar effects has never been tested. The aim of the study was to investigate whether(More)
BACKGROUND Adiponectin (AdipoQ) is an adipose-derived plasma protein that plays an important role in hepatic lipoprotein-lipid metabolism. Emerging evidence have shown that two common polymorphisms (T45 G and G276 T) in the AdipoQ gene may contribute to increasing susceptibility to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD); however individually published(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of Capsule metadoxine in the treatment of alcoholic liver disease. METHODS A randomized double blind multicenter placebo-controlled clinical study was performed to evaluate the therapeutic effectiveness and safety of capsule metadoxine. Patients in metadoxine group received capsule metadoxine 500mg tid po.(More)
BACKGROUND Alcoholic hepatitis (AH) is a necrotizing inflammatory process caused by alcoholic liver injury. It carries a significant short-term mortality. The management of AH is challenging. Although corticosteroids have been demonstrated to exert anti-inflammatory and antifibrotic effects, their efficacy for the treatment of AH remains debatable. DATA(More)
BACKGROUND Important advances have been made in research into the mechanism of alcoholic liver disease (ALD) over the past few years, but the role of liver sinusoidal endothelial cell (LSEC) in ALD has not been elucidated adequately. This study was undertaken to investigate the effect of ethanol on fenestrae of LSECs in rats. METHODS A rat model of(More)
Intestinal mucosal barrier dysfunction is closely related to liver diseases, which implies impaired gut-liver axis may play a role in the pathogenesis of NAFLD. In our study, rats were divided into three groups: normal chow diet (NCD) group, high-fat diet (HFD) group and TNBS-induced colitis with high-fat diet (C-HFD) group. Liver tissues were obtained for(More)
