Evaluation of cross-reactivity to Taenia hydatigena and Echinococcus granulosus in the enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blot assay for the diagnosis of porcine cysticercosis.

Parasit Vectors 2019 Jan 24;12(1):57. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Center for Global Health Tumbes, Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, Tumbes, Peru.

Background: Taenia solium is an important zoonotic parasite that infects humans as definitive host (taeniasis) and pigs as intermediate host (cysticercosis). Serological diagnosis of porcine cysticercosis is limited to antigen detection using ELISA, which is known to cross-react with other Taenia species, and antibody detection using the lentil-lectin glycoprotein enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blot (LLGP EITB), which has not been adequately evaluated for cross-reactivity to other parasites. Field studies suggest that the GP50 diagnostic band of the LLGP EITB may cross-react to Taenia hydatigena, a common non-zoonotic parasitic infection of pigs. Read More

Heterozygous Pkhd1 mice develop cystic liver disease and proximal tubule ectasia that mimics radiographic signs of medullary sponge kidney.

Am J Physiol Renal Physiol 2019 Mar 2;316(3):F463-F472. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Department of Medicine, The University of Alabama at Birmingham , Birmingham, Alabama.

Heterozygosity for human polycystic kidney and hepatic disease 1 ( PKHD1) mutations was recently associated with cystic liver disease and radiographic findings resembling medullary sponge kidney (MSK). However, the relevance of these associations has been tempered by a lack of cystic liver or renal disease in heterozygous mice carrying Pkhd1 gene trap or exon deletions. To determine whether heterozygosity for a smaller Pkhd1 defect can trigger cystic renal disease in mice, we generated and characterized mice with the predicted truncating Pkhd1 mutation in a region corresponding to the middle of exon 20 cluster of five truncating human mutations (between PKHD1 and PKHD1).

Symptom relief and not cyst reduction determines treatment success in aspiration sclerotherapy of hepatic cysts.

Eur Radiol 2018 Dec 12. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Radboud University Medical Center, P.O. Box 9101, 6500 HB, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Objective: To assess whether quantitative assessment of symptom reduction is a better outcome parameter than cyst volume reduction for treatment success in patients treated by aspiration sclerotherapy.

Methods: We included patients with symptomatic, large (> 5 cm), hepatic cysts from a randomized controlled trial (NCT02048319). At baseline and 6 months after treatment, symptoms were assessed with the polycystic liver disease questionnaire (PLD-Q) and we measured cyst volume using ultrasonography. Read More

Modified technique of total hepatectomy in polycystic liver disease with caval flow preservation: the exposure left lateral sectionectomy.

Transplantation 2018 Nov 15. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Département de Chirurgie Hépato-pancréato-biliaire, AP-HP Hôpital Beaujon, Clichy, France.

Background: Liver transplantation (LT) for polycystic liver disease (PLD) is rare, extremely challenging and hemorrhagic, without standard approach. Moreover, LT for PLD presents the highest mortality rate (12 to 18%) among all causes of LT. In this setting, the combination of difficult mobilization of a heavy polycystic native liver with narrow access to inferior vena cava (IVC) and fragile venous wall may lead to venous tearing and cataclysmic bleeding during dissection.
