BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a common condition with endemic prevalence in some areas of the world. In Romania, the mean prevalence is about 3%. New treatments have become available on the market in recent years and new drugs are in the pipeline. A re-evaluation of HCV therapy was considered mandatory. The Romanian Society of Gastroenterology and Hepatology undertook this task for the practitioners of this country. METHODOLOGY: A group of recognized experts was created who screened the available literature and the major available guidelines...

It has been suggested that hepatobiliary carcinomas are less frequent in Wilson's disease (WD) than in liver diseases of other etiology. However, the protective role of copper against malignancies is debated. Only a few cases of cholangiocarcinoma (CCC) in WD have been published. Here we report on a case of a 47-year-old male H1069Q homozygous, Kayser-Fleischer ring positive WD patient with a low ceruloplasmin level who was followed up and treated with chelating agents throughout nine years. The patient presented with neurological symptoms and liver cirrhosis at diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Hepatic inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT) is considered to be benign in biological behavior, and its malignant transformation is extremely rare. There has only been one published case of primary hepatic lymphoma complicated by hepatic IPT. CASE PRESENTATION: A 73-year-old man presented with obstructive jaundice and a pancreatic head mass. Histology of the mass revealed chronic pancreatitis with lymphoid follicle formation, leading to a diagnosis of a suspicion of follicular pancreatitis...

Barrett's esophagus (BE) is a premalignant condition. The incidence of adenocarcinoma in BE has been reported to be between 0.1-3%. Dysplasia in BE is patchy and extensive biopsy sampling is labor intensive, low yield and does not eliminate the sampling error completely. Volumetric laser endomicroscopy (VLE) is expected to enable endoscopists to do targeted biopsy of dysplastic/cancerous lesions (not visible on white light endoscopy) among patients with BE. We reviewed 7 studies with a total of 62 subjects who had undergone VLE...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: This is a prospective study for evaluation of 2D-shear wave elastography (2D-SWE) for characterisation and differentiation of benign und malignant focal liver lesions (FLLs). METHODS: The patients referred to our ultrasound unit were prospectively included. B-mode ultrasound and 2D-SWE (Aixplorer® France) were performed for one FLL in each patient. Liver histology and/or contrast-enhanced imaging were used as a reference method. RESULTS: 140 patients with FLL were included...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Ombitasvir/Paritaprevir/ritonavir/Dasabuvir (OBV/PTV/r+DSV) is one of the elective direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) recommended by international guidelines and the only one covered by the National Insurance System in Romania until November 2016. Our aim was to present the first prospective Romanian cohort evaluating the effectiveness and safety in clinical practice of this 3DAA combination in patients with HCV genotype-1b Child A liver cirrhosis. METHODS: 681 patients received OBV/PTV/r+DSV+RBV for 12 weeks and were assessed clinically and biologically at baseline, week 4, 8, 12 (end of treatment, EOT), and 12 weeks after therapy (sustained viral response, SVR)...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Recent reports suggest an involvement of Th17 responses in inflammatory and autoimmune reactions in alcoholic liver disease (ALD). Our study aimed to assess serum levels of Th17-interleukins in ALD with regard to the frequency of liver-specific autoantibodies and degree of liver damage. METHODS: Ninety-five patients with ALD were enrolled. Serum concentrations of IL-17F, IL-17A, IL-22 were assessed by ELISA. The presence of autoantibodies AMA-M2, SLA/LP, LKM-1, LC1, anti-F-actin, anti-desmin and anti-myosin in serum was assessed by immunoblotting, ANA antibodies were detected by ELISA...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is emerging as an independent cardiovascular risk factor. Recently, Endocan has been studied as an early marker of endothelial dysfunction. Our aim was to evaluate Endocan serum levels in patients with NAFLD with or without type 2 diabetes mellitus. METHOD: We enrolled 56 patients: 19 with NAFLD and 37 with type 2 diabetes mellitus with or without NAFLD, and compared them to 25 healthy controls. Endocan serum level was measured by using the ELISA EndoMark assay...

BACKGROUND: The biliary complications (BC) have been always considered the "Achilles' heel" of liver transplantation (LT), being one of the leading causes of postoperative morbidity. AIM: To analyse predictors of BC, by monitoring in the peripheral blood the biomarkers involved in the inflammation and hepatic fibrosis, such as the matrix metalloproteinases (MMP 2, 9) and their tissue inhibitors (TIMP1), the interleukins (IL 2, 8), alfa-TNF, the endothelins and their receptors...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Patients with primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) frequently suffer from extrahepatic autoimmune conditions, of which autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) is one of the most common. Previous studies identified several genetic variants increasing the odds of developing AITD. Here we investigate whether AITD-associated polymorphisms might also play a role in the development and clinical course of PBC and PBC associated with AITD (PBC-AITD). METHODS: To this end, we prospectively recruited 230 patients with PBC and 421 healthy controls...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Golimumab (GOL) has been recently approved in Italy for the treatment of ulcerative colitis (UC) unresponsive to standard treatments. Our aims were to assess the real-life efficacy and safety of GOL in managing UC outpatients in Italian primary Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) centres. METHODS: Consecutive UC outpatients with at least 3-months follow-up were enrolled. Primary end-point was the induction and maintenance of remission in UC, defined as Mayo score </=2, at 6-month follow-up...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play an important role in the occurrence and progression of human cancers, including gastric cancer. Our hospital-based case-control study aimed to investigate whether four commonly studied single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have effects on susceptibility to gastric cancer in a Romanian population. METHOD: We genotyped the miR-27a rs895819, miR-146a rs2910164, miR-196a2 rs11614913 and miR-499 rs3746444 SNPs by real-time PCR using predesignated TaqMan assays in 430 individuals (142 gastric cancer patients and 288 age and gender matched cancer-free controls)...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) eradication in patients who failed one or more therapeutic attempts remains challenging. This study aimed to assess the efficacy of three-in-one capsules bismuth-based quadruple therapy (Pylera®) in these patients managed in clinical practice. METHODS: This was a prospective, open-label, multicenter study enrolling consecutive, adult patients with persistent H. pylori infection following at least one standard therapy...
