Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
The histological features of chronic hepatitis C and autoimmune chronic hepatitis: A comparative analysis
Before the availability of serological markers for hepatitis C, the morphological features of this diagnosis, which represents most non‐A, non‐B hepatitis, could not be confirmed. We examined biopsyExpand
Fatty liver hepatitis and cirrhosis in obese patients.
The pathologic picture resembled that of alcohol and postjejunoileal bypass-induced liver diseases suggesting a common denominator in these three conditions. Expand
Carbohydrate-deficient transferrin, a marker for chronic alcohol consumption in different ethnic populations.
Serum levels of carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT) were determined in a racially mixed population of 107 alcoholics, 18 healthy, nonalcoholic control subjects, 62 abstinent alcoholics, and inExpand
Capillarization of hepatic sinusoids in man.
Progressive changes in the hepatic perisinusoidal tissue space of Disse in chronic liver diseases ultimately lead to development of a basement membrane and capillarization of sinusoids that aggravates hepatocellular insufficiency. Expand
Fat-storing cells (lipocytes) in human liver.
Pathophysiology of cholestasis.
This nonmechanical theory excludes from the category of cholestatasis other types of direct reacting hyperbilirubinemia, such as early primary biliary cirrhosis and chronic idiopathic jaundice, but includes thecholestatic component found in many liver diseases of established cause. Expand
Effect of weight reduction on hepatic abnormalities in overweight patients.
In overweight adults without primary liver disease, a weight reduction of greater than or equal to 10% corrected abnormal hepatic test results, decreased hepatosplenomegaly, and resolved some stigmata of liver disease. Expand
The liver in the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome: A clinical and histologic study
Liver biopsy should be performed in any patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome who has unexplained fever, hepatomegaly or abnormal results of serum biochemical liver tests, and all specimens should be stained and cultured for mycobacteria and fungi. Expand
The role of alcoholism and liver disease in the appearance of serum antibodies against acetaldehyde adducts
In addition to alcohol consumption, severity of liver disease may play a role in the appearance of circulating antibodies against acetaldehyde adducts, and in 52 alcoholics and in nonalcoholic patients with biopsy‐confirmed liver disease, the highest titers were seen in the more advanced stages of liver damage.
