Molecular Mechanisms for Protection of Hepatocytes against Bile Salt Cytotoxicity.

Chem Pharm Bull (Tokyo) 2019 ;67(4):333-340

Department of Pharmacy, Shiga University of Medical Science Hospital.

Biliary lipids consist mainly of bile salts, phospholipids and cholesterol, which form mixed micelles and vesicles. Bile salts play various physiological roles but have damaging effects on cell membranes due to their detergent properties. The cytotoxicity of bile salts on hepatocytes leads to liver injuries and is largely determined by the bile salt species, the concentrations of bile salts, phospholipids and cholesterol, and the lipid composition of cell membranes.

Ann Hepatol 2018 Dec;18(1):240-245

2nd Dept. of Surgery, "Aretaieio" Hospital, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, School of Medicine, Greece.

Gallbladder duplication can present a clinical challenge primarily due to difficulties with diagnosis and identification. Recognition of this anomaly and its various types is important since it can complicate a gallbladder disease or a simple hepatobiliary surgical procedure. The case report of a 63-year-old woman who presented with cholangitis and underwent a successful laparoscopic management of symptomatic gallbladder duplication is described, emphasizing several important considerations.

Fibroinflammatory Liver Injuries as Preneoplastic Condition in Cholangiopathies.

Int J Mol Sci 2018 Dec 4;19(12). Epub 2018 Dec 4.

School of Medicine and Surgery, University of Milan-Bicocca, Via Cadore 48, 20900 Monza, Italy.

The cholangipathies are a class of liver diseases that specifically affects the biliary tree. These pathologies may have different etiologies (genetic, autoimmune, viral, or toxic) but all of them are characterized by a stark inflammatory infiltrate, increasing overtime, accompanied by an excess of periportal fibrosis. The cellular types that mount the regenerative/reparative hepatic response to the damage belong to different lineages, including cholagiocytes, mesenchymal and inflammatory cells, which dynamically interact with each other, exchanging different signals acting in autocrine and paracrine fashion.
