Quantifying Body Composition and Liver Disease in Children Using Free-Breathing MRI and MRE

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used to measure liver fat content and fatty tissues in the body, and magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) is used to measure liver stiffness. The information from MRI and MRE are used to understand risk factors and diagnose liver diseases, such as fatty liver disease and …

sCD163 in PBC Patients - Assessment of Treatment Response

Primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) is an autoimmune chronic liver disease, characterised by destruction of the small intrahepatic bile ducts. Ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) is the first line treatment for patients with PBC. However, up to 40% of patients respond inadequate to this treatment. sCD163 is a macrophage activation marker shedded into …

Hepatic Resection for Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the feasibility of an aggressive multimodal approach among patients with stage IV pancreatic cancer (PAC) with isolated, low-volume hepatic metastasis (LVHM). We will evaluate and describe the surgical and overall outcomes of an initial cohort of subjects who undergo pancreatectomy and hepatic …

Derivation of New Human Embryonic Stem Cell Lines Lines for Clinical Use

Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) are isolated from the early human embryo and have the capability to proliferate indefinitely in culture and to develop into nearly every cell of the human body. Therefore, hESCs may serve as a renewable unlimited source of cells for transplantation therapy. Because of the use …

Analgesic Efficacy of Orally Administered VTS-K for Pain Management

A combination of ketamine and aspirin for the treatment of acute MSK pain in the ED would confer multimodal analgesia, with the contributions of aspirin and ketamine to an opioid sparing effect. Research on this multimodal approach is sparse, but the minimal empirical evidence supports a clinical benefit to patients …

Microvesicles and Monocytes to Predict Mortality of Patients With Cirrhosis

Chronic liver diseases related to viral hepatitis, metabolic syndrome or excessive alcohol consumption can evolve towards cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is responsible for 170 000 deaths per year in Europe. Initially asymptomatic and called "compensated" it can become "decompensated" with the developement of acute complications such as infections, ascites or variceal bleeding. …
