BACKGROUND AND AIM: Bacterial infections are among the main causes of death in patients with cirrhosis. While there are unquestionable benefits of using albumin in patients with spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, the benefits of albumin are controversial for those with extraperitoneal infections. The aim was to compare the use of albumin associated to antibiotics and antibiotics alone in cirrhotic patients with extraperitoneal infections. METHODS: A systematic review was performed using MEDLINE and Embase databases...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: NAFLD patients often have dyslipidemia, and optimal treatment of dyslipidemia lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality. We aimed to study the prescription of statin and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol treatment targets in NAFLD patients. METHODS: Consecutive NAFLD patients attending five clinics in Asia were included in this study. The 10-year cardiovascular disease risk was calculated based on the Framingham Heart Study, and patients were categorized as moderate, high or very high risk for cardiovascular disease based on the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologist 2017 Guidelines...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: This study aimed to investigate the association between the findings of Doppler ultrasonography and transient elastography using FibroScan and to determine the cut-off points, sensitivity, and specificity of resistance indices, and pulsatility of the hepatic vessels to predict significant hepatic fibrosis. METHODS: This is a transversal, observational, and analytical study that includes 30 patients with chronic hepatitis C who were admitted at a public referral hospital...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: A few small retrospective studies recently found that endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in asymptomatic compared with symptomatic common bile duct stones (CBDSs) patients appeared to increase the risk of post-ERCP pancreatitis (PEP). This study aimed to determine the risk of ERCP in asymptomatic CBDS patients. METHODS: A total of 327 consecutive patients with native papilla were invited to participate into the study and divided into two groups: 53 in the asymptomatic group and 274 in the symptomatic group, who underwent CBDS removal by ERCP...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: A growing body of literature suggests the association between dementia risk and proton pump inhibitor (PPI) use. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the association between PPI use and dementia risk. METHODS: An extensive literature search was performed in PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane till March 31, 2019. All the studies (cohort and case-control) assessing the association between PPI use and dementia risk were eligible for inclusion. Articles were selected based on the screening of title and abstract, data were extracted, and risk of bias was assessed using Newcastle-Ottawa scale...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Magnifying endoscopy is useful for diagnosis of early gastrointestinal neoplasms by visualizing microvascular (MV) and microsurface (MS) structure of the mucosa when combined with image-enhanced endoscopy. However, precise control of the endoscope is needed because the depth of focus is narrow and the target may move. These problems may be overcome by the all-in-focus (AIF) technique, which was developed in the engineering field. The aim of the study was to evaluate magnifying endoscopic image with AIF algorithm...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: The aim of this study is to evaluate the epidemiology and impact of bacterial infections at admission in patients with acute decompensation (AD) of cirrhosis. METHODS: A cohort with AD of cirrhosis (European Association for the Study of the Liver criteria) admitted at a tertiary center was evaluated between 2013 and 2014 for the presence of bacterial infections at admission. Clinical, demographic, and microbiological data were collected prospectively till death, transplant, or 90 days...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: The prevalence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) associated with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD-HCC) is increasing. Unfortunately, NAFLD frequently develops into HCC without liver cirrhosis. Therefore, we investigated the clinical features of HCC in NAFLD patients without advanced fibrosis. METHODS: We compared clinical characteristics, survival rates, and recurrence rates between 104 NAFLD-HCC patients diagnosed between January 2000 and December 2016, including 35 without (F0-2) and 69 with advanced fibrosis (F3-F4)...

The Asia-Pacific Working Group on Inflammatory Bowel Disease was established in Cebu, Philippines, under the auspices of the Asia-Pacific Association of Gastroenterology with the goal of improving inflammatory bowel disease care in Asia. This consensus is carried out in collaboration with Asian Organization for Crohn's and Colitis. With biologic agents and biosimilars becoming more established, it is necessary to conduct a review on existing literature and establish a consensus on when and how to introduce biologic agents and biosimilars in conjunction with conventional treatments for ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease in Asia...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: The pathological features of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) have not been determined, so fundamental treatment has not been established. Adipose-tissue-derived stromal/stem cells (ADSCs) are beneficial for repair/regenerative therapy of impaired organs because of their immuno-modulatory capability. In this study, we assessed how liver damage progresses during the early development phase of the murine NASH model and investigated whether ADSCs are preventatively efficacious against the fibrosis progression of NASH...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Although non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is common in the general population, identifying patients with advanced fibrosis remains a challenge. We investigated whether the homeostasis model assessment parameter of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR), an index of IR and one of the most important metabolic factors, is an independent predictive factor for advanced fibrosis in nondiabetic patients with NAFLD. METHODS: This was a retrospective, cross-sectional multicenter study...
