Presents a summary of recommendations developed by an international working party supported by the world congresses of gastroenteology on the terminology of chronic hepatitis, hepatic allograft rejection and nodular lesions of the liver as of August 2, 1994. General principles and suggestions of the panels on the terminology of chronic hepatitis; Traditional terms that are obsolete in chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis; Information on the alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency disease of the liver.

    Since the condition was first described four decades ago, alpha-1-antitrypsin (A1AT) deficiency has served as a model for other disease processes. A1AT is the archetypal serpin designed to ensnare proteases, a process that involves significant conformational change within the molecule. Mutations...

    Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD) is a rare genetic disease that results from mutations in the alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT) gene. The mutant AAT protein aggregates and accumulates in the liver leading to AATD liver disease, which is only treatable by liver transplant. The PiZ transgenic mouse...

    Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and its chronicity is a serious public health problem, and mother - to - child transmission (MTCT) of HBV is one of the most common routes of infection. The risk factors for the MTCT of HBV and corresponding measures are reviewed from the aspects of...

    A middle-aged white man of Scotch-Irish ancestry, being treated for chronic hepatitis C, was found to be heterozygous for α1-antitrypsin deficiency (PiMZ phenotype) after diagnostic PAS-positive, diastase-resistant globules were detected in a liver biopsy. The globules had not been present in...

    α1-antitrypsin deficiency is characterised by predispositions to liver disease and severe, early-onset emphysema. It is caused by point mutations that destabilise the molecular structure of α1-antitrypsin, leading it to self-associate into chains known as polymers. Polymerisation abolishes...
