Abstract Background Aims Inpatients with cirrhosis have high rates of acute on chronic failure (ACLF) development and high mortality within 30 days of admission to the hospital. Better biomarkers are needed to predict these outcomes. We performed metabolomic analyses of serum samples from patients with cirrhosis at multiple centers to determine whether metabolite profiles might identify patients at high risk for ACLF and death. Methods We performed metabolomic analyses, using liquid chromatograp...

Abstract: Background and Aims Altered microbiota can affect gut-liver-brain axis in cirrhosis and hepatic encephalopathy (HE), but the impact of sex on these changes is unclear. We aimed to determine differences in fecal microbiota composition/functionality in men compared to women with cirrhosis and HE on differing treatments. Methods Men and women with cirrhosis and controls underwent stool microbiome composition (16srRNA sequencing) and microbial functional analysis between groups cross-secti...

Alcohol use disorder (AUD) screening is important but focused training with using AUDIT-10 with counselling/mental health (MH) referral may be needed. We aimed to compare the effect of training on AUD screening/intervention in hepatology clinics in pre versus post-training phases of a quality-improvement initiative. Pre-training encounters were evaluated for inquiry into AUD, AUDIT-10 and MH referrals. Dedicated AUD-related training was provided to hepatology providers and analyses repeated post...

Objective Comorbid conditions are associated with poor prognosis in COVID-19. Registry data show that patients with cirrhosis may be at high risk. However, outcome comparisons among patients with cirrhosis+COVID-19 versus patients with COVID-19 alone and cirrhosis alone are lacking. The aim of this study was to perform these comparisons. Design A multicentre study of inpatients with cirrhosis+COVID-19 compared with age/gender-matched patients with COVID-19 alone and cirrhosis alone was performed...

Abstract Background & Aims Liver transplantation is the only treatment that increases survival times of patients with decompensated cirrhosis. Patients who live further away from a transplant center are disadvantaged. Health care delivery via telehealth is an effective way to remotely manage patients with decompensated cirrhosis. We investigated the effects of telehealth on the liver transplant evaluation process. Methods We performed a retrospective study of 465 patients who underwent evaluatio...

The gut microbiome is an exciting new area of research in chronic liver disease. It has shown promise in expanding our understanding of these complicated disease processes and has opened up new treatment modalities. The aim of this review is to increase understanding of the microbiome and explain the collection and analysis process in the context of liver disease. It also looks at our current understanding of the role of the microbiome in the wide spectrum of chronic liver diseases and how it is...

Abstract: Background & Aims Insurance, race, and ethnicity can affect outcomes of patients with cirrhosis, but findings from prospective studies are unclear. We investigated the role of insurance status and race and ethnicity (race/ethnicity) on inpatient and 90-day post-discharge outcomes in a large inpatient cohort of patients with cirrhosis. Methods We used data from the North American Consortium for the Study of End-Stage Liver Disease (NACSELD) database, from 13 tertiary-care centers. Insur...
