Highlights in Gastroenterology

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.

Risk factors for intra-abdominal abscesses in Crohn’s disease

As reported in Digestion, uncontrolled CRP at week 14 of therapy with infliximab (OR=1.36) and early loss of response to infliximab (OR=5.36) are independent risk factors for intra-abdominal abscesses in patients with Crohn’s disease.
