What is Liver Cirrhosis?
Cirrhosis is a severe and irreversible liver condition characterized by the replacement of healthy liver tissue with scar tissue. Once cirrhosis has developed, the liver’s ability to function properly is significantly impaired, which can lead to life-threatening complications such as liver failure, hepatic encephalopathy, and portal hypertension. While there is no cure for cirrhosis, treatment […]
A drug can cause liver regeneration in Alagille syndrome
For the first time, research led by Associate Professor Duc Dong, Ph.D., demonstrated that a drug can stimulate liver regeneration in Alagille syndrome. Alagille syndrome is caused by a mutation that prevents the formation and regeneration of bile ducts in the liver. It affects over 4,000 babies each year. The patients frequently require a liver […]
Green tea extract may harm liver in people with certain genetic variations
Long-term use of high-dose green tea extract may provide some protection against cancer, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. Still, it also may create liver damage in a small minority of the population. Who is at risk? Research from Rutgers, published in The Journal of Dietary Supplements, provides the first solid clue: two genetic […]
Poor diet damages blood vessels, says study
Despite eating a healthy diet and losing a lot of weight, the blood vessels in the kidneys didn’t fully recover from the disease but the blood vessels in the liver did. A study team has found that each organ’s blood arteries are uniquely impacted by metabolic illness. For instance, the liver and adipose tissue’s blood […]
Unborn babies’ lungs and brains are found to contain hazardous pollutants, according to a recent study.
Millions of people die every year as a result of air pollution, which affects over 90% of the world’s population. The lungs, brains, and livers of even unborn children have been found to contain hazardous air particles, according to a recent disturbing discovery. The study was published in the Lancet Planetary Health journal. Mothers who […]
A diet heavy in processed fibre may raise certain people’s chance of developing liver cancer
Sometimes, it can be hard to follow dietary recommendations despite new dieting ideas and trends. Diets frequently need to be varied and adapted based on individual needs and health hazards because everyone’s nutritional requirements are unique. In a recent Gastroenterology study, the risk of getting liver cancer in mice fed diets high in fermentable fibre […]
The novel zoonotic Langya Henipavirus from China can cause leukopenia and damage to the liver and kidneys
35 people have been infected by the Langya henipavirus, a new zoonotic illness that affects shrews in China. Is it worthwhile to panic? If it begins to spread among people, it is. People have been on high alert for viruses that are transmitted from animals to humans ever since the coronavirus pandemic began. And there’s […]
Potentially, advanced non-alcoholic fatty liver disease could be treated with B vitamins
These findings research which was published in the Journal of Hepatology could help people with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, an umbrella term for a range of liver conditions affecting people who drink little to no alcohol, which affects 25 percent of all adults globally, and four in 10 adults in Singapore. A mechanism that causes an […]
How Does Alcohol Consumption Affect the Immune System?
Although alcohol consumption is typically associated with liver damage, both moderate and chronic alcohol use can significantly impact the immune system, thereby limiting the ability of the body to protect itself from infection and disease adequately. The immune system is typically categorized into the innate and adaptive immune response systems, both of which are essential […]
