Systemic Litholysis with Bile Acids: Ursodeoxycholic Acid
TLDR
UDCA has the advantage that it can be administered entirely without side effects, and was reported for the first time the successful dissolution of cholesterol gallbladder stones with ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA).
Increased Prevalence of Gallstone Disease and Impaired Gallbladder Motility in Patients with Barrett’s Esophagus
TLDR
Patients with Barrett’s esophagus have a more complex gastrointestinal motility disorder that involves the gallbladder, and this subset of patients with GERD is more prone to gallstone disease.
Immunological Features and the Effect of Interferon Treatment in Chronic Hepatitis C
TLDR
The treatment resulted in the clearance of HCV-RNA from the serum in 40% of patients and this correlated well with complete remission and in the responders, a decrease in CD4+ cell count and a transient decrease inCD8+ cell number as well as a moderate rise in B cell count were seen during the treatment.
Silibinin potentially attenuates arsenic-induced oxidative stress mediated cardiotoxicity and dyslipidemia in rats
TLDR
It is demonstrated that silibinin (SB) has a potential to extenuate the arsenic-induced cardiotoxicity and dyslipidemia in rat and the light microscopic and transmission electron microscopic study further supports the protective efficacy of SB on the heart mitochondria.
Pharmacokinetics of Rokitamycin after Single and Repeated Dose Oral Administration to Patients with Liver Cirrhosis
TLDR
The results suggest that a dosage adjustment is not necessary in patients with compensated liver cirrhosis and after repeated doses of rokitamycin, the drug did not show increasing blood concentrations either in cirrhotics or in healthy controls.
Effect of Uridine Diphosphoglucose on Levels of 5-Phosphoribosyl Pyrophosphate and Uridine Triphosphate in Murine Tissues
TLDR
The potential use of UDPG to elevate UTP pools in normal tissues in the delayed rescue of cancer chemotherapeutic drugs such as 5-fluorouracil which function as a uridine analogue in these tissues is suggested.
The Benefits of Whole Food Nutrition in Veterinary Medicine Clinical Use of Whole Food Nutrients in Veterinary Practice
TLDR
Nutrition is the foundation of optimal health and deficiency studies have correlated deficiencies of vitamin C with scurvy, thiamin with beriberi, minerals with growth inhibition, and antioxidants with nutritional amblyopia and chronic diseases.
A Comparison of the Predictive Power of DNA Methylation with Carbohydrate Deficient Transferrin for Heavy Alcohol Consumption
TLDR
It is concluded that DNA methylation is a promising method for quantifying HAC and that further studies to better refine its strengths and limitations are in order.

Hormonal control of hepatic bilirubin transport and conjugation.
TLDR
The role of the pituitary and thyroid glands in the regulation of hepatic transport and metabolism of bilirubin in Sprague-Dawley rats was investigated with continuous bilirubs infusion and bile collection for estimation of cumulative hepatic uptake and maximal hepatic excretion in vivo and determination of glucuronyltransferase activity in vitro.
Bilirubin conjugates in bile of man and rat in the normal state and in liver disease.
TLDR
The present investigations stress the importance of the physiopathological state when studying bilirubin conjugation as well as the easy model of hydrostatic obstruction in rats, which provides an easy model when postobstructive bile pigment composition and parameters have to be investigated.
Phototherapy for primary biliary cirrhosis.
TLDR
The patients referred to me had already been receiving routine therapy for the pruritus and jaundice, without success, and this therapy included oral administration of cholestyramine resin, vitamin K, calcium lactate, fat soluble vitamins, methyltestosterone, and phototherapy.
Arzneimitteltherapie bei Leberkrankheiten
TLDR
In all cases with significant impairment of the metabolic capacity of the liver (e.g. acute viral hepatitis), dosage adjustments should be based on decreased (hepatic) clearance rather than on prolongation of halflife of the respective drug.
NIH conference: Primary biliary cirrhosis: a model autoimmune disease.
TLDR
Better understanding of the pathogenesis of primary biliary cirrhosis is needed to develop specific immunotherapies and treatments to arrest the disease's progress have included corticosteroids, azathioprine, cyclosporin, and D-penicillamine.
Maximal biliary secretion of bilirubin in the anaesthetized rat: dependence on UDP-glucuronosyltransferase activity.
TLDR
The observations demonstrate that the ratio of mono- to di-glucuronide in bile is mainly but not solely determined by the transferase activity, and that the currently used assay of the digitonin-activiated glucuronosyltransferase yields physiologically meaningful data.
Clearance of Antipyrine‐Dependence of Quantitative Liver Function
TLDR
The results indicate that the drug‐metabolizing capacity of the liver changes in parallel with the other metabolic functions, and the use of the clearance of antipyrine as a quantitative test of liver function is suggested.
Gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase--its role in hepatocarcinogenesis.
TLDR
Elevated levels of GGT during hepatocarcinogenesis are found not only in the liver of rats but in the livers of other species as well, and several investigators have concluded that GGT acts primarily as a glutathionase.
