Steatosis in chronic hepatitis C: prevalence and therapeutic impact

Mrabet Soumaya , Jemni Imen , Akkari Imen , Jazia Elhem Ben

Introduction: Steatosis has become an important issue in hepatitis C, due to the injury it can cause in a chronically ill liver. In chronic hepatitis C patients, the prevalence of steatosis ranges from 40–86%. Steatosis was significantly associated with the lack of response using PEG-IFN and ribavirin. The aim of our study was to determine the prevalence of hepatic steatosis in chronic hepatitis C and determine its impact on the therapeutic response using new direct antiv...

Effect of diets rich in n-3 or n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids on fibrinogen and haptoglobin on the acute phase response

Nunes Deise W , Carrilho Alexandre J F , Mazzuco Tania L , Silveira Vera L F

Background: Diets rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) n-3 may change the fluidity and composition of membrane phospholipids, leading to different prostanoids formation, decreasing IL-1β and TNFα releases and increasing the basal levels of corticosterone, important factors to promote acute phase response (APR) to stimuli. This study proposes to verify if PUFA n-3 or n-6 rich diets alters the APR of fibrinogen and haptoglobin after turpentine stimulus.<p cla...

Mukhtarova Shakhnoza , Mukhtarova Margarita , Yulduz Urmanova

Actuality: Diabetes is one of the largest global health emergencies of the 21st century. Each year more and more people live with this condition, which can result in life-changing complications. In addition to the 415 million adults who are estimated to currently have diabetes, there are 318 million adults with impaired glucose tolerance, which puts them at high risk of developing the disease in the future (International Diabetes Federation, 2015). The prevalence of patients w...

Emerging evidence suggests that HS is associated with other comorbidities, while data concerning the coexistence of HS and Down syndrome (DS) are scarce. We report the case of a young male affected by DS and HS that suffers from multiple endocrine disturbances.Observation: A 23-year-old overweight male (BMI 32 kg/m2) with a 9-year hi...

Introduction: Rothmund-Thomson syndrome (RTS) is a rare autosomal recessive genodermatosis, with specific clinical features. Herein, we report a case of RTS with RECQL4 mutation, unusually associated with hypercortisolemia.Case report: An 18-year-old girl, born to consanguinous parents, with a history of xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) in two cousins, has been followed-up for RTS, since the age of 3 years. The diagnosis of RTS was made based on photosensitivi...
