Highlights in Gastroenterology

SIRT3 expression improves prognosis in gastric cancer

As reported in the World Journal of Surgery, SIRT3 expression improves the prognosis in patients with gastric cancer (n=221). Specifically, the 5-year OS was 51.2% and 39.1% in patients who do and do not express SIRT3, respectively. The 5-year DFS was 49.6% and 38.0% in patients who do and do not express SIRT3, respectively. Patients who do not express SIRT3 are characterized by increased poor cellular differentiation, increased diffuse-type Lauren’s histology, and increases scirrhous-type stromal reactions, suggesting the SIRT3 functions as a tumor suppressor.

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 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).
