A Novel Maladaptive Unfolded Protein Response as a Mechanism for Small Bowel Resection (SBR)-Induced Liver Injury.

Am J Physiol Gastrointest Liver Physiol 2022 Jun 21. Epub 2022 Jun 21.

Division of Pediatric Surgery, Department of Surgery, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis Children's Hospital, St. Louis, MO, United States.

Background: The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a complex adaptive signaling pathway activated by accumulation of misfolded proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). ER stress (ERS) triggers a cascade of responses that converge upon C/EBP-homologous protein (CHOP) to drive inflammation and apoptosis. Herein, we sought to determine whether liver injury and fibrosis after small bowel resection (SBR) was mediated by a maladaptive hepatic ERS/UPR. Read More

Nutritional Management of Short Bowel Syndrome.

Clin Perinatol 2022 06 21;49(2):557-572. Epub 2022 Apr 21.

Global Newborn Society (https://www.globalnewbornsociety.org/), Clarksville, MD, USA.

Short bowel syndrome (SBS) of infancy is a cause of prolonged morbidity with intolerance to enteral feeding, specialized nutritional needs, and partial/total dependence on parenteral nutrition. These infants can benefit from individualized nutritional strategies to support and enhance the process of intestinal adaptation. Early introduction of enteral feeds during the period of intestinal adaptation is crucial, even though the enteral feedings may need to be supplemented with an effective, safe, and nutritionally adequate parenteral nutritional regimen.
