In a manner similar to that used to determine skeletal muscle density, CT has also been employed to determine the density of liver tissue (104-106). In obesity research, this approach has been used to identify fatty liver, which is an emerging predictor of metabolic abnormalities such as insulin resistance (100) and dyslipidemia (99). As with skeletal muscle, lower mean liver attenuation values are indicative of greater fatty infiltration or steatosis in the liver. In other words, CT-measured liver attenuation can be used as a surrogate measure of liver steatosis, as liver density is inversely related to liver fat (105). Unlike in the skeletal muscle, fat in the liver resides solely inside the hepatocytes thus there is no extracellular lipid component. However, it has been reported that although extremely low HU values have been measured in biopsy-diagnosed fatty livers, an overlap exists between normal and abnormal liver HU values (107). Therefore, the absolute liver density...
A simplified scheme of infection-related oncogenesis can be used to categorize the malignancies into one of two types either tumors caused by the integration of oncogenic DNA into the host cell or those induced by chronic inflammation. Basically, all types of oncogenic agents enhance cell growth. The mechanisms by which this occurs can be quite variable, however, ranging from expression of viral oncogenes for cell growth factors to stimulation of growth by inflammatory intermediaries. Agents with oncogenes, however, directly immortalize cells, while inflammatory carcinogenic agents do not. Moreover, it is thought that immunosuppression may be important for development of malignancies related to oncogene integration. This is not thought to be the case for inflammation-related malignancy in fact, immunosuppression, by lessening the inflammatory response, could potentially protect against inflammation-related cancers. This was highlighted in a recent review by Smukler and Ratner who...
Discussion Pollutants, cigarette smoke, and infections increase PMNs and macrophages in the lung and thus produce a number of proteolytic enzymes. Damage to lung tissue due to these enzymes is controlled by the globulin a,-antitrypsin, which inhibits trypsin, neutrophil, elastase, and collagenase. A deficiency of this enzyme causes excessive lung tissue destruction and panacinar emphysema (cigarette smoking is associated with the centrilobular type). Patients may also develop liver damage.
Unsterilized syringe or dirty needle. The incubation period for hepatitis ranges from six weeks to six months. The type of hepatitis a patient has can be identified in some patients. There can be a wide variety of clinical symptoms and signs of hepatitis ranging from mild infection to death. The disease is usually centered in the liver and jaundice (yellow coloration of skin) is usually present along with hepatomegaly (enlarged liver). Liver damage may result in hepatitis. Most patients recover from hepatitis. Bed rest is usually required during the first phase of the disease. Hepatitis is viral in nature. Therefore, there is no specific treatment or cure other than to let the disease run its course. The physician treating a person who has hepatitis must carefully observe the patient and treat symptoms and complications when they arise.
This disease is characterized by random necrosis of liver cells. An inflammatory mononuclear collects in the liver lobule and sinusoids of involved areas. In most instances of nonfatal viral hepatitis, regeneration of the liver begins almost with the onset of the disease. The damaged cells and their contents eventually are removed by phagocytosis and enzymatic reaction and the liver return to normal. There are several factors that will influence the course and severity of the disease. The virulence of the virus is a prime factor. The stronger the virus, the stronger the disease. Prior hepatic damage is also a factor. If the patient has sustained liver damage before exposure to the virus, this will make the disease more severe. Some people seem to have natural barriers or immunity to the virus. Care following the appearance of the symptoms will also affect the course of the disease. Mostly viral hepatitis is a mild disease and complete recovery is the rule. During the course of the...
TG2 has been shown to have an important role in the maintenance of tissue integrity following cell stress or injury 2, 64 . Its role in tissue repair, as a response to loss in tissue homeostasis following trauma, is well documented 64 . The participation of the enzyme has been proposed in various degenerative diseases leading to severe tissue damage characterized by cell death and accumulation of insoluble protein aggregates both at intracellular and extracellular level 64, 65 . These diseases include, between others, various types of liver damages. A liver pathology characterized by accumulation of intracellular aggregate is the alcoholic hepatitis. The characteristic of this disease is the formation of Mallory Bodies that are cytoplasmic deposits of cytokeratin proteins, and TG2 has been shown to participate in their cross-linking 66 . The TG2 enzymatic reaction contributes to these pathologies by increasing the resistance of the deposited ECM to breakdown. Its ablation, in a mouse...
Of plasma retinol (i.e., 3H retinol retinol) decreased during inflammation, indicating that the mobilization of retinol from liver stores was inhibited while there was still some apoRBP being synthesized in hepatocytes to allow for mobilization of unlabeled, diet-derived vitamin A. It was hypothesized that delivery of vitamin A to tissues, such as the eyes, lungs, or kidneys, might be impaired with chronic low plasma retinol levels such as occurs during chronic inflammatory disease. This has important public health implications. Specifically, administering vitamin A during inflammation may not ameliorate low plasma retinol concentrations, although it might increase the delivery of chylomicron vitamin A to extrahepatic tissues. Normally, the liver parenchymal cells secrete diet-derived vitamin A into plasma quite quickly (von Reinersdorff et al., 1998). It may be that the chronic administration of large vitamin A supplements during inflammation, when RBP synthesis is depressed, may...
A 58-year-old white male who has had diabetes for 5 years, taking 4 mg of glimepiride twice daily and 850 mg of metformin three times daily, presents with an A1-C of 7.8 , fasting glucose of 157, and postprandial glucoses at suppertime of 195-205. He admits to sporadic eating patterns, has had fatty liver with transaminases 1.5-2 times normal, and is reluctant to take insulin.
Although paraquat causes marked local irritation (e.g. of skin, eyes or gastrointestinal tract), its most dramatic effects are systemic, with renal failure, liver damage and in particular pulmonary oedema. Although these complications may be rapidly fatal, more typically death occurs in a few weeks from severe pulmonary fibrosis.
Most common was the belief that allopathic health care was inappropriate to chronic conditions (Pawluch et al. 1994 Sharma 1990, 1992 Wellman 1995). For example, Roger and Lucy turned to alternative therapies in response to chronic health problems for which they found no relief in allopathic medicine. Roger put it this way The whole area of managing chronic illness in one's life comes to mind as kind of a departure from a Western medical framework. And Lucy told me this The medical field felt that the chronic fatigue had created the liver damage, but when I went to the naturopath they discovered that cortisone has about three pages of counter indications. The medical field, they didn't know what to do.
Leptospira interrogans is a Gram-negative spirochete that causes leptospirosis, an infection of the kidneys. Symptoms of leptospirosis include fever, headache, jaundice, and kidney and liver damage. Leptospira interrogans is transmitted through urine and is carried by rats.
Benzodiazepines are the preferred treatment for alcohol withdrawal delirium. Diazepam and chlordiazepoxide are the most commonly used. Elderly patients, or patients with severe liver damage, may better tolerate intermediate-acting benzodiazepines, such as lorazepam and oxazepam. Thiamin (100 mg) and folic acid (1 mg) are routinely administered to prevent central nervous system (CNS) damage secondary to vitamin deficiency. Thiamin should be always administered prior to glucose infusion, because glucose metabolism may rapidly deplete the patient's thiamin reserves in cases of long-term poor nutrition. When the patient has a history of alcohol withdrawal seizures, magnesium sulfate should be administered.
Mild icterus palmar erythema muscle wasting malnourishment abdomen reveals 2+ ascitic fluid (due to alcoholic liver damage) fourth and fifth fingers of right hand reveal flexion contracture with nodular thickening and thick bands of tissue palpable upon drawing examining finger across palm,
The liver scan is a radionuclide study of the size, shape, and function of the liver. Liver and spleen scans are done together since the same radionuclide is used for each study. Indications for liver scan include differentiating between primary and metastatic liver cancer, identifying various liver diseases, and evaluating liver damage caused by drugs, trauma, or radiation therapy.
