Biol Chem 2018 Dec 1. Epub 2018 Dec 1.

Institute of Biochemistry, Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, Universitätsstraße 1, D-40225 Düsseldorf, Germany.

Several ABC transporters of the human liver are responsible for the secretion of bile salts, lipids and cholesterol. Their interplay protects the biliary tree from the harsh detergent activity of bile salts. Among these transporters, ABCB4 is essential for the translocation of phosphatidylcholine lipids from the inner to the outer leaflet of the canalicular membrane of hepatocytes. Read More

Surgeon 2019 Jan 28. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery Unit, General Surgery Department, Joan XXIII University Hospital, Tarragona, Spain.

Background: Current evidence shows that single-stage treatment of concomitant choledocholithiasis and cholelithiasis is as effective and safe as two-stage treatment. However, several studies suggest that single-stage approach requires shorter hospitalization time and is more cost-effective than the two-stage approach, even though it requires considerable training. This study aimed to evaluate the implementation of a protocol for managing concomitant choledocholithiasis and cholelithiasis using single-stage treatment. Read More

Against the Odds: A Novel Technique to Perform Cholangiography from a Percutaneous Approach through the Cystic Duct.

Cureus 2018 Nov 12;10(11):e3577. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

Interventional Radiology, University of Florida College of Medicine, Jacksonville, USA.

Percutaneous cholangiography is typically performed via a transhepatic approach and is reserved for patients with contraindications to traditional cholangiogram imaging modalities. For those with suspected cholelithiasis or choledocholithiasis who cannot undergo magnetic resonance imaging for diagnosis, percutaneous cholecystostomy with cholangiogram is a viable option. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography may also be precluded due to anatomic or obstructive limitations, in which case, percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography (PTC) may be indicated for diagnosis.

Cholangiocyte death in ductopenic cholestatic cholangiopathies: Mechanistic basis and emerging therapeutic strategies.

Life Sci 2019 Feb 2;218:324-339. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Instituto de Fisiología Experimental (IFISE-CONICET), Facultad de Ciencias Bioquímicas y Farmacéuticas, Universidad Nacional de Rosario (UNR), Suipacha 570, 2000 Rosario, Argentina. Electronic address:

Among hepatic diseases, cholestatic ductopenic cholangiopathies are poorly studied, and they are rarely given the importance they deserve, especially considering their high incidence in clinical practice. Although cholestatic ductopenic cholangiopathies have different etiologies and pathogenesis, all have the same target (the cholangiocyte) and similar mechanistic basis of cell death. Cholestatic cholangiopathies are characterized, predominantly, by obstructive or functional damage in the biliary epithelium, resulting in an imbalance between proliferation and cholangiocellular death; this leads to the progressive disappearance of bile ducts, as has been shown to occur in primary sclerosing cholangitis, primary biliary cholangitis, low-phospholipid-associated cholelithiasis syndrome, cystic fibrosis-related liver disease, and drug-induced ductopenia, among other biliary disorders.

Genome-wide association meta-analysis yields 20 loci associated with gallstone disease.

Nat Commun 2018 11 30;9(1):5101. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

deCODE Genetics/Amgen, Inc., Reykjavik, 101, Iceland.

Gallstones are responsible for one of the most common diseases in the Western world and are commonly treated with cholecystectomy. We perform a meta-analysis of two genome-wide association studies of gallstone disease in Iceland and the UK, totaling 27,174 cases and 736,838 controls, uncovering 21 novel gallstone-associated variants at 20 loci. Two distinct low frequency missense variants in SLC10A2, encoding the apical sodium-dependent bile acid transporter (ASBT), associate with an increased risk of gallstone disease (Pro290Ser: OR = 1.

Comprehensive metabolic profile of phenolic acids and flavonoids in Glechomae Herba using ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography coupled to quadrupole-time-of-flight tandem mass spectrometry with diagnostic ion filtering strategy.

J Pharm Biomed Anal 2019 Feb 16;164:615-629. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

The National Pharmaceutical Engineering Center (NPEC) for Solid Preparation in Chinese Herbal Medicine, Jiangxi University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, 56 Yangming Road, Jiangxi, Nanchang 330006, China. Electronic address:

Glechomae Herba (GH), a traditional Chinese medicine, is commonly used for the treatment of urolithiasis and cholelithiasis based on its diuretic and cholagogic actions. However, relatively few studies have been conducted to describe this medicine's metabolites. Therefore, an ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography coupled to quadrupole time of flight tandem mass spectrometry (UHPLC-QTOF-MS/MS) analysis with diagnostic product ions and neutral loss filtering strategy was established for the metabolic profiling profile of GH.
