Abstract : Background. Only a few biomarkers based on metabolic parameters for evaluating liver fibrosis have been reported. The aim of this study was to investigate the relevance of an index obtained from three metabolic variables (glycated albumin: GA, glycated hemoglobin: HbA1c, and branched-chain amino acids to tyrosine ratio: BTR) to the degree of liver fibrosis in hepatitis C virus virus- (HCV-) positive patients. Methods. A total of 394 HCV-positive patients were assessed based on the values of a new index (GA/HbA1c/BTR). The index findings were used to investigate the relationship with the degree of liver fibrosis. Results. The new index showed an association with the stage of fibrosis (METAVIR scores: F0-1: 0.42 +/- 0.10, F2: 0.48 +/- 0.15, F3: 0.56 +/- 0.22, and F4: 0.71 +/- 0.30). The index was negatively correlated with three variables of liver function: the prothrombin time percentage (P < 0.0001), albumin level (P < 0.0001), and cholinesterase level (P < 0.0001). The new index showed a higher correlation related to liver function than FIB-4 and the APRI did. In addition, the index showed a higher AUROC value than that of FIB-4 and the APRI for prediction of liver cirrhosis. Conclusion. The new metabolism-related index, GA/HbA1c/BTR value, is shown to relate to the degree of liver fibrosis in HCV-positive patients.

Title : An Increased Ratio of Glycated Albumin to HbA1c Is Associated with the Degree of Liver Fibrosis in Hepatitis B Virus-Positive Patients - Enomoto_2014_Gastroenterol.Res.Pract_2014_351396

Abstract : Background. In hepatitis B virus- (HBV-) positive patients, the relationship between the metabolic variables and histological degree of liver fibrosis has been poorly investigated. Methods. A total of 176 HBV-positive patients were assessed in whom the ratios of glycated albumin-to-glycated hemoglobin (GA/HbA1c) were calculated in order to investigate the relationship with the degree of liver fibrosis. Results. The GA/HbA1c ratio increased in association with the severity of fibrosis (METAVIR scores: F0-1: 2.61 +/- 0.24, F2: 2.65 +/- 0.24, F3: 2.74 +/- 0.38, and F4: 2.91 +/- 0.63). The GA/HbA1c ratios were inversely correlated with four variables of liver function: the prothrombin time (PT) percentage (P < 0.0001), platelet count (P < 0.0001), albumin value (P < 0.0001), and cholinesterase value (P < 0.0001). The GA/HbA1c ratio was positively correlated with two well-known markers of liver fibrosis, FIB-4 (P < 0.0001) and the AST-to-platelet ratio index (APRI) (P < 0.0001). Furthermore, the GA/HbA1c showed better correlations with two variables of liver function (PT percentage and cholinesterase value) than did FIB-4 and with all four variables than did the APRI. Conclusion. The GA/HbA1c ratio is associated with the degree of liver fibrosis in HBV-positive patients.

Abstract : Hypocholinesterasemia is often observed clinically, especially in various liver diseases. Not well known, however, is the fact that some patients have a hereditary BChE variant. Little has been reported on liver transplants associated with this hereditary BChE variant. Furthermore, no cases have been reported of a LDLT involving hereditary BChE variant that had been diagnosed preoperatively. A 23-month-old girl who had had a failed Kasai operation for biliary atresia underwent a liver transplant using as a graft her father's lateral segment. Preoperatively, she had been diagnosed with hypocholinesterasemia. As the donor, her father had undergone a preoperative examination, during which he was found to also have hypocholinesterasemia. DNA sequencing revealed that both had the hereditary BChE variant. The unique mutation caused a frame-shift mutation. Variant K was also detected. The patient was discharged 143 days after the operation and has had no problems with immunosuppression since. In conclusion, we report that the hereditary BChE variant is not a contraindication for either transplantation or living liver donation.

Abstract : This study describes comprehensive polling of transcription start and termination sites and analysis of previously unidentified full-length complementary DNAs derived from the mouse genome. We identify the 5' and 3' boundaries of 181,047 transcripts with extensive variation in transcripts arising from alternative promoter usage, splicing, and polyadenylation. There are 16,247 new mouse protein-coding transcripts, including 5154 encoding previously unidentified proteins. Genomic mapping of the transcriptome reveals transcriptional forests, with overlapping transcription on both strands, separated by deserts in which few transcripts are observed. The data provide a comprehensive platform for the comparative analysis of mammalian transcriptional regulation in differentiation and development.
