BACKGROUND: The severity of liver dysfunction in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is often estimated with Child-Turcotte-Pugh (CTP) classification or model for end-stage liver disease (MELD) score. We aim to investigate the performance of albumin-bilirubin (ALBI) and platelet-albumin-bilirubin (PALBI) grade, which are recently reported to be simple and objective measurements for liver reserve in HCC. METHODS: Between 2002 and 2014, consecutive 3,182 HCC patients were enrolled to follow up their survival...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Overall survival (OS) is a composite clinical endpoint in hepatocellular carcinoma due to the mutual influence of cirrhosis and active malignancy in dictating patient's mortality. The ALBI grade is a recently described index of liver dysfunction in HCC, based solely on albumin and bilirubin levels. Whilst accurate, this score lacks cross-validation, especially in intermediate-stage HCC, where OS is highly heterogeneous. METHODS: We evaluated the prognostic accuracy of the ALBI grade in estimating overall survival (OS) in a large, multi-center study including 2426 patients, including a large proportion of intermediate-stage patients treated with chemoembolization (n=1461) accrued from Europe, the United States and Asia...

INTRODUCTION: Post-operative bile leak (BL) and post hepatectomy liver failure (PHLF) are the major potential sources of morbidity among patients undergoing liver resection. We sought to define the incidence of BL and PHLF among a large cohort of patients, as well as examine the prognostic impact of model for end-stage liver disease (MELD) and albumin-bilirubin (ALBI) scores to predict these short-term outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients who underwent a hepatectomy between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014 were identified using the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) liver-targeted database...

Free water elimination (FWE) in brain diffusion MRI has been shown to improve tissue specificity in human white matter characterization both in health and in disease. Relative to the classical diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) model, FWE is also expected to increase sensitivity to microstructural changes in longitudinal studies. However, it is not clear if these two models differ in their test-retest reproducibility. This study compares a bi-tensor model for FWE with DTI by extending a previous longitudinal-reproducibility 3T multisite study (10 sites, 7 different scanner models) of 50 healthy elderly participants (55-80 years old) scanned in two sessions at least 1 week apart...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: The albumin-bilirubin (ALBI) grade is a recently emerging alternative of the Child-Pugh (CP) grade. The Cancer of the Liver Italian Program (CLIP) was demonstrated to be a useful prognostic model for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in large prospective cohorts. We aimed to investigate the feasibility of substituting the CP grade by the ALBI grade in the CLIP system and compare the prognostic performance with other existing staging systems. METHODS: A large cohort of 1973 Chinese patients with HCC was recruited to evaluate the prognostic performance of CP-based CLIP (CP-CLIP) and ALBI-based CLIP (ALBI-CLIP) systems and 9 other staging systems by homogeneity likelihood chi-square, c-index and corrected Akaike information criterion (AICc)...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: The ALBI grade was proposed as an objective means to evaluate liver function in patients with Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC). ALBI grade 1 vs 2 were proposed as stratification factors within the Child Pugh (CP) A class. However, the original publication did not provide comparison with the sub-classification by points (5 to 15) within the CP classification. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed data from patients treated with sorafenib for HCC from 17 centers in United Kingdom and France...

BACKGROUND: The Child-Pugh (CP) score is used widely to assess liver function and predict postoperative outcomes in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Recently, the albumin-bilirubin (ALBI) score has been validated as a predictor of overall survival in these patients. This study aimed to compare the ability of the ALBI and CP scores to predict outcomes in patients with HCC after liver resection with curative intent. METHODS: Consecutive patients who underwent liver resection with curative intent for HCC between January 2007 and July 2013 were included in this retrospective study...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: The Cancer of the Liver Italian Program (CLIP) score is a commonly used staging system for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) helpful with predicting prognosis of advanced HCC. CLIP uses the Child-Turcotte-Pugh (CTP) score to evaluate liver reserve. A new scoring system, the albumin-bilirubin (ALBI) grade, has been proposed as they objectively evaluate liver reserve. We examined whether the modification of CLIP with ALBI retained its prognosis prediction for patients with advanced HCC...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The albumin-bilirubin (ALBI) grade is a recently reported, simpler, more objective, and evidence-based alternative to the Child-Pugh (CP) score for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We aimed to study whether ALBI grade could substitute for CP score in Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC) for HCC. METHODS: An international multicentre cohort (n = 3696) was accrued to compare the prognostic performance of the CP-based and ALBI-based BCLC system, in terms of homogeneity, discriminatory ability, and monotonicity of gradients that were numerically reflected by homogeneity likelihood, linear trend chi-squares, and c-indices, respectively...

BACKGROUND: The Albumin-Bilirubin (ALBI) grade has been proposed as a new, simple, and objective method of assessing liver function. However, there is lack of data in sorafenib-treated patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS: We evaluated the correlations between the ALBI grade and Child-Pugh score, adverse events, and survival in 89 patients with advanced HCC who were prospectively treated with sorafenib. RESULTS: Majority of patients with ALBI grade 1 (14/15 patients, 93%) had a Child-Pugh score of 5...
