BACKGROUND & AIMS Fractionated plasma separation and adsorption (FPSA) is an extracorporeal procedure that supports liver function by removing endogenous toxins that cause complications from acute-on-chronic liver failure (AOCLF). We performed a randomized trial to investigate survival of patients with AOCLF treated with FPSA. METHODS Patients with AOCLF(More)
BACKGROUND In gouty arthritis, monosodium urate (MSU) crystals interact with monocytes and neutrophils to produce inflammatory reactions associated with acute synovitis. In patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), gouty arthritis is a rare condition despite often severe hyperuricaemia. We wondered whether differences in the secretion of proinflammatory(More)
Acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) is a life-threatening complication after solid-organ transplantation, which is mediated by host-reactive donor T cells emigrating from the allograft. We report on two liver transplant recipients who developed an almost complete donor chimerism in peripheral blood and bone marrow-infiltrating T cells during aGVHD. By(More)
In May 2000, a 38-year-old patient with Crohn’s disease (CD) was referred to our outpatient clinic. CD had been diagnosed in 1985 in connection with a resection of the ileocecal region. In May 2000, the patient developed an inflammatory stenosis of the anastomosized region, diagnosed by magnetic resonance tomography. The patient responded well to standard(More)
INTRODUCTION Drug-induced tubulointerstitial nephritis and acute tubular necrosis are common, and are often caused by drugs especially antibiotics or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Drug-induced liver dysfunction and renal failure after subcutaneous injection of phosphatidylcholine was not reported so far. 3-sn-Phosphatidylcholine has been described(More)
