Elevated ?-GT predicts HCC in hepatitis C patients with sustained response

As reported in the Journal of Hepatology, an elevated baseline ɣ-GT level is the strongest predictor of developing HCC in non-cirrhotic patients with hepatitis C and a sustained virologic response (HR = 6.44), followed by age (HR = 3.68).

Infliximab is effective in corticosteroid-refractory ulcerative colitis

As reported in the Journal of Crohn’s & Colitis, treatment of corticosteroid-refractory ulcerative colitis patients with 3 doses of infliximab (n=113) resulted in short- (3 months) and long-term (12 months) colectomy rates of 18.6% and 25.6%, respectively. The RR of colectomy in patients with an elevated CRP and severe endoscopic lesions was 2.15 and 5.13, respectively.

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.
