    Background: Nowadays, treatments for cholestasis remain largely nonspecific and often ineffective. Recent studies showed that inflammatory injuries and oxidative stress occur in the liver with cholestasis. In this study, we would use corilagin to treat the animal model of acute...

    Among the three main schistosomes ( Schistosoma japonicum, Schistosoma mansoni, and Schistosoma haematobium) known to infect humans, S. japonicum causes the most serious pathological lesions. In China, only schistosomiasis japonica is transmitted. From the 1950s, massive epidemiological...

    Background: Schistosomiasis is a parasitic disease infecting more than 200 million people in the world. Although chemotherapy targeting on killing schistosomes is one of the main strategies in the disease control, there are few effective ways of dealing with liver fibrosis caused by the parasite...

  • Liver fibrosis: a bidirectional model of fibrogenesis and resolution. Ramachandran, P.; Iredale, J.P. // QJM: An International Journal of Medicine;Sep2012, Vol. 105 Issue 9, p813 

    Liver fibrosis is the generic response to chronic injury of varying aetiologies. A number of common mechanisms link this response to the pathogenesis of fibrosis in other organs. While long thought to be relentlessly progressive, there is now excellent evidence in both human liver disease and...

  • Models of liver fibrosis: exploring the dynamic nature of inflammation and repair in a solid organ. Iredale, John P. // Journal of Clinical Investigation;Mar2007, Vol. 117 Issue 3, p539 

    Models of liver fibrosis, which include cell culture models, explanted and biopsied human material, and experimental animal models, have demonstrated that liver fibrosis is a highly dynamic example of solid organ wound healing. Recent work in human and animal models has shown that liver fibrosis...

    Background: Schistosomiasis (or bilharzia), a major parasitic disease, affects more than 260 million people worldwide. In chronic cases of intestinal schistosomiasis caused by trematodes of the Schistosoma genus, hepatic fibrosis develops as a host immune response to the helminth eggs, followed...

    The aim of this study was to determine whether two polymorphisms in the gene encoding IL13 previously associated with Schistosoma hematobium (S. hematobium) and S. mansoni infection are associated with S. japonicum infection. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) rs1800925 (IL13/-1112C>T) and...
