<h4>Background/objectives</h4>In patients with liver cirrhosis (LC), sarcopenia is correlated with frequent complications and increased mortality. Myostatin-a myokine-is a potential biomarker of skeletal mass and/or sarcopenia. The aim of this study was to examine the association between myostatin and muscle-mass and evaluate myostatin as a biomarker of sarcopenia in LC.<h4>Methods</h4>Skeletal-muscle-index (SMI) ...

Evaluation of noninvasive markers for the diagnosis of cystic fibrosis liver disease.

Alexandra Alexopoulou, Sophia Pouriki, Larisa Vasilieva, Theodoros Alexopoulos, Vasiliki Filaditaki, Maria Gioka, Filia Diamantea, Spyros P Dourakis,

<h4>Objectives</h4>In cystic fibrosis (CF), liver disease (LD) is the third leading cause of mortality. As liver biopsy was considered inconsistent in CFLD diagnosis, a combination of modalities were utilized in the conventional Debray criteria (DC). More recently, noninvasive liver fibrosis biomarkers were applied by Koh et al (New criteria-NC). In the ... Read more >>

Bacterial translocation markers in liver cirrhosis.

Alexandra Alexopoulou, Danai Agiasotelli, Larisa E Vasilieva, Spyros P Dourakis,

Bacterial translocation (BT) is an important mechanism in the development of infection in liver cirrhosis. The migration and colonization of bacteria and/or bacterial products from the bowel to mesenteric lymph nodes is a controlled process in healthy persons. Increased intestinal permeability, bacterial overgrowth and defect of gut-associated lymphatic tissue promote ... Read more >>

High serum lipopolysaccharide binding protein is associated with increased mortality in patients with decompensated cirrhosis.

Danai Agiasotelli, Alexandra Alexopoulou, Larisa Vasilieva, Emilia Hadziyannis, Dimitris Goukos, George L Daikos, Spyros P Dourakis,

<h4>Background & aims</h4>Lipopolysaccharide-binding-protein (LBP) is an acute-phase-protein produced by hepatocytes. Changes in LBP are associated with the dynamics of bacterial translocation and intestinal permeability in decompensated cirrhosis (DC). We assessed serum and ascitic-fluid (AF) LBP and examined their association with mortality in patients with DC.<h4>Methods</h4>Eighty-eight consecutive patients (73.9% males) underwent ...

Larisa E Vasilieva, Stefanos I Papadhimitriou, Alexandra Alexopoulou, Dimitris Pavlidis, Ioannis Kostopoulos, Maria Georgiakaki, Dimitrios Xinopoulos, Andreas Romanos, Spyridon P Dourakis,

The cytological diagnosis of cholangiocarcinoma has been significantly aided by applying a 4-probe fluorescence in situ hybridization system on endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography brushing smears, aiming mainly at the detection of hyperdiploidy. However, this approach adds little to our understanding of the genetic background of the disease. With the prospect of ... Read more >>

Modern diagnostic approaches to cholangiocarcinoma.

Larisa E Vasilieva, Stefanos I Papadhimitriou, Spyros P Dourakis,

<h4>Background</h4>Cholangiocarcinoma is a very aggressive tumor with poor survival. Therefore, early diagnosis and surgical resection are of paramount importance. Its diagnosis is difficult because access to the tumor is not easy. Biopsy is possible only for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, which accounts for 10% of cases. Routine brush cytology from endoscopic retrograde ... Read more >>
