Granulocyte‐colony stimulating factor induces proliferation of hepatic progenitors in alcoholic steatohepatitis: A randomized trial
Liver failure is the major cause of death in alcoholic steatohepatitis (ASH). In experimental hepatitis, granulocyte‐colony stimulating factor (G‐CSF) mobilizes hematopoietic stem cells, induces… Expand
Autologous Bone Marrow Mononuclear Cell Transplantation in Patients with Decompensated Alcoholic Liver Disease: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Objective Impaired liver regeneration is associated with a poor outcome in patients with decompensated alcoholic liver disease (ALD). We assessed whether autologous bone marrow mononuclear cell… Expand
Role of proteomics to differentiate between benign and potentially malignant pancreatic cysts.
Pancreatic cystic neoplasms represent 10-15% of primary cystic masses of the pancreas. While pancreatic cysts are detected with an increasing frequency due to the use of advanced imaging modalities… Expand
Combined written and oral information prior to gastrointestinal endoscopy compared with oral information alone: a randomized trial
BackgroundLittle is known about how to most effectively deliver relevant information to patients scheduled for endoscopy.MethodsTo assess the effects of combined written and oral information,… Expand

OBJECTIVE:In patients with cirrhosis, acute octreotide administration may transiently decrease the hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG). Information on long-term effects of octreotide is limited… Expand
Hepatic cell proliferation plays a pivotal role in the prognosis of alcoholic hepatitis.
BACKGROUND & AIMS The role of liver progenitor cell (LPC) expansion, known as a marker of disease severity, as well as the impact of macrophage activation on liver regeneration remains unclear in… Expand

The role of CFTR and SPINK-1 mutations in pancreatic disorders in HIV-positive patients: a case–control study
Objective: Pancreatic disorders in HIV-positive patients are frequent. CFTR and SPINK-1 mutations have been reported to increase the risk of pancreatitis, but no data are available in HIV-positive… Expand
Soluble TNF-R1, but not tumor necrosis factor alpha, predicts the 3-month mortality in patients with alcoholic hepatitis.

- Journal of hepatology
- 1 August 2004
BACKGROUND/AIMS In alcoholic hepatitis (AH), soluble TNF alpha receptor-1 (sTNF-R1) is increased. Elevated TNF alpha predicts mortality, but infection influences TNF alpha values. In patients with… Expand
Initial cholecystectomy vs sequential common duct endoscopic assessment and subsequent cholecystectomy for suspected gallstone migration: a randomized clinical trial.
IMPORTANCE The optimal management of treatment for patients at intermediate risk of a common duct stone (including increased liver function tests but bilirubin <4 mg/dL and no cholangitis) is a… Expand
