Highlights in Gastroenterology

Predictors of sustained binge drinking

As reported in Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research, sustained binge drinkers have an earlier onset, drink monthly in secondary school, binged in their 20s, exhibit impulsivity and novelty-seeking, and have depressive symptoms during adolescence compared to those who stop binge drinking.

Risk factors for CHC-related death identified

As reported in the World Journal of Gastroenterology, the following risk factors for chronic hepatitis C (CHC)-related deaths have been identified (n=8250 CHC patients; n=144 CHC-related deaths): α-IFN therapy (AOR=0.53); liver cirrhosis (AOR=2.89); hepatocellular carcinoma versus CHC (AOR=8.82); hypertension (AOR=1.76); alcohol consumption (AOR=1.73); and HBsAg positivity (AOR=22.28).

Decreased PTPN12 expression associated with poor prognosis in HCC

As reported in PLoS ONE, the expression of PTPN12 was decreased in hepatocellular carcinoma tissue samples compared with adjacent normal tissues. Furthermore, decreased PTPN12 expression was associated with tumor recurrence, decreased cancer-specific survival, and decreased recurrence-free survival.
