: Statins have pleiotropic effects which may include chemoprevention. Several observational studies have suggested that statins may prevent hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) but they have not yet been fully studied in patients with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infections. A hospital-based retrospective cohort of 7,713 chronic HBV-infected individuals between January 2008 and December 2012 were analyzed. The primary outcome was the development of HCC. Patients who used statins for at least 28 cum...

This study aimed to investigate the clinical significance of systemic inflammation markers (SIMs)—including neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), and lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR)—in patients with newly diagnosed, previously untreated hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The present study was performed using prospectively collected registry data of newly diagnosed, previously untreated HCC from a single institution. The training set included 6619 patients from...

The aim of this study was to investigate the on-treatment kinetics of quantitative HBsAg during entecavir therapy to predict the treatment period needed to achieve functional cure.From a cohort of 1,009 CHB treatment-naive patients who were started on entecavir, the kinetics of quantitative HBsAg decline was assessedin 410 patients by a linear mixed model. The difference in the kinetics of quantitative HBsAg was determined based on the HBeAg-positivity, HBeAg seroclearance and presence of baseli...

Background/Aims: Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections put patients at risk of serious liver disease and adversely affects patient quality of life (QoL). MOSAIC (International Multicenter Prospective Observational Study to Evaluate the Epidemiology, Humanistic and Economic Outcomes of Treatment for Chronic Hepatitis C Virus) was a prospective, non-interventional, international, multicenter study that aimed to describe the epidemiology of the infection, the impact of the infection on health-...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a multisystem disease associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), diabetes, and chronic kidney disease. Indeed, CVD is the most common cause of death in NAFLD patients. This study aimed to evaluate the association between NAFLD and the risk of incident myocardial infarction. METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort study involving 111 492 adults over 40 years old without history of CVD, liver disease, or cance...

This study examined the association between chronic HBV or HCV infection and the risk of extrahepatic cancers.A total of 537,103 adultsaged >/=20 years without history of cancer were identified from the Korean National Health Insurance Service-National Sample Cohort between 2003 and 2013. The difference in cancer incidence was compared between those with and without chronic HBV or HCV infection. During 3,854,130person-years of follow-up (median follow-up:8.0 years), 19,089 participants developed...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Sustained off-treatment immune control is achievable in a proportion of patients with chronic hepatitis B treated with peginterferon alfa-2a. We evaluated on-treatment predictors of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) clearance 3 years after peginterferon alfa-2a treatment and determined the incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma. METHODS: A prospective, international, multicenter, observational study in patients with chronic hepatitis B who have been prescribed peginterferon...

Abstract Background and aim It has been suggested that tumor markers can provide additional information over tumor size and number-based liver transplantation (LT) criteria. We aimed to assess if changes in tumor markers are associated with the risk of tumor recurrence after LT for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) who received loco-regional therapies (LRTs). Methods A total of 129 patients who received LT with pre-LT LRTs for HCC were analyzed. Milan criteria and tumor markers, alpha-fetoprotein, ...

BACKGROUND: The benefit of weight loss for reducing cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk in metabolically healthy obese people is unknown. OBJECTIVES: We evaluated the association between weight change and incident subclinical carotid atherosclerosis (SCA) in metabolically healthy but overweight or obese subjects. METHODS: Cohort study of 3117 metabolically healthy overweight or obese adults who did not have any metabolic syndrome components or insulin resistance at baseline. SCA was assessed using...

Nowadays, intensive immunosuppressive therapy including rituximab is commonly used prior to kidney transplantation (KT), raising concerns over hepatitis B virus (HBV) reactivation among hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg)-negative and anti-hepatitis B core (HBc)-positive KT recipients. Recent practice guidelines suggested watchful monitoring or antiviral prophylaxis for the first 6-12 months, the period of maximal immunosuppression. However, the actual risk for HBV reactivation, and whether shor...
