Sustained virological response in hepatitis C virus type 1b infected patients is predicted by the number of mutations within the NS5A-ISDR: a meta-analysis focused on geographical differences
Background and aims: There is growing evidence that the response of hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 1b infected patients towards interferon (IFN) therapy is influenced by the number of mutations… Expand
Increasing applicability of liver transplantation for patients with hepatitis B–related liver disease
Liver transplantation in patients with hepatitis B has been under discussion for 20 years because of inferior results without reinfection prophylaxis; therefore, we analyzed our overall experience… Expand
RELATION BETWEEN ESCHERICHIA COLI R(ROUGH)-FORMS IN GUT, LIPID A IN LIVER, AND PRIMARY BILIARY CIRRHOSIS
Since antimitochondrial antibodies (AMA) specific to primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) recognise enterobacterial proteins and can be induced by R(rough)-mutants of enterobacteriaceae a study was done… Expand
Long term clinical outcome of chronic hepatitis C patients with sustained virological response to interferon monotherapy
Background: The key end point for treatment efficacy in chronic hepatitis C is absence of detectable virus at six months after treatment. However, the incidence of clinical events during long term… Expand
Hepatitis B virus with antigenically altered hepatitis B surface antigen is selected by high‐dose hepatitis B immune globulin after liver transplantation
“Escape” variants of hepatitis B virus (HBV) can cause infection despite previous immunization. These viruses show alterations of the immunogenic major hydrophilic loop of the HBV small surface… Expand
Prediction of treatment outcome in patients with chronic hepatitis C: significance of baseline parameters and viral dynamics during therapy.
In patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection scheduled for a 48-week treatment period, premature discontinuation of treatment was previously recommended if HCV-RNA levels remained… Expand
Prediction of treatment outcome in patients with chronic hepatitis C: Significance of baseline parameters and viral dynamics during therapy
In patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection scheduled for a 48‐week treatment period, premature discontinuation of treatment was previously recommended if HCV‐RNA levels remained… Expand
Viral dynamics of hepatitis C early after orthotopic liver transplantation: evidence for rapid turnover of serum virions.
The pathogenesis of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is likely to be associated with viral replication in vivo, but little is known concerning the dynamics of HCV turnover. We performed serial… Expand
Systemic lupus erythematosus: neuropsychiatric signs and symptoms related to cerebral MRI findings

- 1 March 1993
A 76.2% prevalence of abnormalities was found in the cerebral MR scans of 21 patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). These patients were enrolled in the study consecutively as they… Expand
Long-term follow-up of hepatitis B virus-infected recipients after orthotopic liver transplantation.
The outcome after OLT was studied in 53 patients with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV)* infection, 15 of whom had, in addition, evidence of hepatitis delta virus (HDV) superinfection. Nine of 53… Expand
