41. Liver Transplantation for Alcoholic Hepatitis is Likely Underestimated in the National Transplant Database. (PubMed)

Liver Transplantation for Alcoholic Hepatitis is Likely Underestimated in the National Transplant Database. Alcohol-associated liver disease (ALD) can be coded in United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) as either alcoholic cirrhosis or alcoholic hepatitis (AH), without having specific criteria to assign either diagnosis. In this multicenter American Consortium of Early Liver Transplantation for Alcoholic Hepatitis (ACCELERATE-AH) study, we sought to assess the concordance of the clinician (...) , we determined the reason for alternate classification. Among 124 ACCELERATE-AH LT recipients with a chart-review diagnosis of AH, only 43/124 (35%) had AH as listing diagnosis in UNOS; 80 (64%) were listed as alcoholic cirrhosis, and 1 (1%) as fulminant hepatic necrosis. Of the 81 patients missing AH as a UNOS listing diagnosis code, the reasons for alternate classification were 44 (54%) due to a lack of awareness of a separate diagnosis code for AH; 13 (16%) due to concomitant clinical diagnosis

42. Biomarkers of macrophage activation and immune danger signals predict clinical outcomes in alcoholic hepatitis. (PubMed)

Biomarkers of macrophage activation and immune danger signals predict clinical outcomes in alcoholic hepatitis. Although mortality due to acute alcoholic hepatitis (AH) correlates with Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) scores, biomarkers are critically needed to manage this disease. Increases in inflammatory markers and macrophage activation are associated with acute AH and could be potential biomarkers of clinical events and/or mortality. We enrolled 89 clinically diagnosed AH patients (...) in four US academic medical centers. Plasma from AH patients had a significant increase in gut microbial translocation indicators (endotoxin, bacterial 16S ribosomal DNA) and host response indicators (soluble cluster of differentiation 14 [sCD14] and lipopolysaccharide binding protein [LBP]) compared to controls. Patient MELD score and Glasgow Alcoholic Hepatitis score (GAHS) correlated with endotoxin levels. AH patients also had a significant increase in high mobility group protein 1 (HMGB1

43. A Peripheral Blood DNA Methylation Signature of Hepatic Fat Reveals a Potential Causal Pathway for Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease. (PubMed)

A Peripheral Blood DNA Methylation Signature of Hepatic Fat Reveals a Potential Causal Pathway for Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a risk factor for type 2 diabetes. We aimed to identify the peripheral blood DNA methylation signature of hepatic fat. We conducted epigenome-wide association studies of hepatic fat in 3,400 European ancestry (EA) participants and in 401 Hispanic ancestry and 724 African ancestry participants from four population-based (...) cohort studies. Hepatic fat was measured using computed tomography or ultrasound imaging and DNA methylation was assessed at over 400,000 cytosine-guanine dinucleotides (CpGs) in whole blood or CD14+ monocytes using a commercial array. We identified 22 CpGs associated with hepatic fat in EA participants at a false discovery rate <0.05 (corresponding p=6.9×10-6) with replication at Bonferroni corrected p<8.6×10-4 Mendelian randomization analyses supported the association of hypomethylation

45. Evaluating the association of serum ferritin and hepatic iron with disease severity in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. (PubMed)

Evaluating the association of serum ferritin and hepatic iron with disease severity in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Hyperferritinemia, with or without increased hepatic iron, represents a common finding in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, it is unclear whether it reflects hepatic inflammation or true iron-overload and, in case the latter is confirmed, whether this influences disease progression. We therefore explored the association between serum ferritin, degree (...) and pattern of hepatic iron deposition and liver disease severity in patients with NAFLD.We selected 468 patients with biopsy-proven NAFLD from two European centres. Iron, hepatic and metabolic parameters were collected at the time of liver biopsy. Iron deposits in hepatocytes and reticuloendothelial cells were assessed and graded. Diagnosis of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and fibrosis staging were performed.122 (26%) patients had hyperferritinemia, whereas stainable hepatic iron was found in 116

47. Current trials and novel therapeutic targets for alcoholic hepatitis. (Full text)

Current trials and novel therapeutic targets for alcoholic hepatitis. Alcoholic hepatitis is a clinical syndrome in which patients present with acute-on-chronic liver failure and a high risk of short-term mortality. The current treatment of alcoholic hepatitis is suboptimal. Results recently published from the STOPAH study have improved our understanding of how best to design clinical trials for this condition. Although emerging data on liver transplantation for patients with alcoholic (...) hepatitis are encouraging, less than 2% of these patients qualify. Clearly, there is an unmet need for novel treatments to improve the survival of these patients. Changes in the gut microbiota, inflammatory and cytokine signalling, oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction, and abnormalities in the hepatic regenerative capacity alone or in combination contribute to the pathology of alcoholic hepatitis. In this chapter, we will describe the novel therapeutic agents targeting various pathways

Endpoints and patient stratification in clinical trials for alcoholic hepatitis. In some areas of medicine the clinical development pathway through phase II and III clinical trials has been well mapped out and refined through extensive experience. In contrast, a number of key questions remain unanswered in the development of novel therapeutics for alcoholic hepatitis. The use of mortality as an endpoint in phase II clinical trials will potentially restrict the appeal of this therapeutic area

49. Liver transplantation for alcoholic hepatitis. (Full text)

Liver transplantation for alcoholic hepatitis. While liver transplantation (LT) has become a standard therapy for life-threatening alcohol related cirrhosis, LT as a treatment for severe alcoholic hepatitis (AH) has remained a taboo owing to concerns about the limited organ supply and the risk that the AH liver recipient will return to harmful drinking. The adoption of a 6-month abstinence requirement (the so-called '6-month rule') by many centres made AH a contraindication to LT. Given (...) studies are urgently needed to resolve the controversies that still surround the criteria for selection of patients with AH for LT and the long-term outcomes of the associated alcohol use disorder.Copyright © 2018 European Association for the Study of the Liver.

53. Intestinal fungal dysbiosis and systemic immune response to fungi in patients with alcoholic hepatitis. (PubMed)

Intestinal fungal dysbiosis and systemic immune response to fungi in patients with alcoholic hepatitis. Chronic alcohol consumption causes increased intestinal permeability and changes in the intestinal microbiota composition which contribute to the development and progression of alcohol-related liver disease. In this setting, little is known about commensal fungi in the gut. We studied the intestinal mycobiota in a cohort of patients with alcoholic hepatitis, patients with alcohol use disorder (...) or steroid treatment was not associated with a lower diversity. Patients with alcoholic hepatitis had significantly higher ASCA levels compared to patients with alcohol use disorder and to non-alcoholic controls. Within the alcoholic hepatitis patient cohort, patients with levels of ≥34 IU/ml, had a significantly lower 90-day survival (60%) compared to those with ASCA levels <34 IU/ml (80%) with an adjusted hazard ratio of 3.13 (95% CI 1.11-8.82, p=0.031).

55. The association between a non-invasive hepatic fibrosis score and urolithiasis among non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) patients in China: a cross-sectional study. (Full text)

The association between a non-invasive hepatic fibrosis score and urolithiasis among non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) patients in China: a cross-sectional study. Mounting data now support a strong link between the presence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and an increased risk of urolithiasis. However, little is known on the association between hepatic fibrosis and the risk of urolithiasis among NAFLD patients. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the prevalence (...) of urolithiasis among NAFLD patients and determine whether the Fibrosis-4 (FIB-4) score, a surrogate marker of hepatic fibrosis, is associated with urolithiasis among NAFLD patients.Cross-sectional studies.China.A total of 2058 adult patients with NAFLD were included in this study. Logistic regression analysis was used to detect the association between FIB-4 score and urolithiasis. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis was used to assess the diagnostic value of FIB-4 score for the detection
