Molecular signatures of long-term hepatocellular carcinoma risk in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

Predicting liver cancer riskNonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) raises the risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but this risk can be difficult to quantify and disease onset can still be difficult to catch early. Fujiwara et al. developed hepatic transcriptome and serum secretome–derived signatures to predict NAFLD-related HCC in patients over 15 years of observation. …

Favorable impact of long-term SGLT2 inhibitor for NAFLD complicated by diabetes mellitus: A 5-year follow-up study

The aim of this study was to determine the impact at 5 years of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitor (SGLT2i) in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) on liver histopathology and clinical features. In this retrospective study, the histological impacts at 5 years after the start of SGLT2i in NAFLD with T2DM were …

Are there outcome differences between NAFLD and metabolic-associated fatty liver disease?

BackgroundGiven the association of NAFLD with metabolic risks, a name change to MAFLD is proposed. We compared the long-term outcomes of NAFLD and MAFLD. MethodsWe included patients with fatty liver disease (FLD) from NHANES III and NHANES 2017–2018 (FLD defined as moderate to severe hepatic steatosis by ultrasound for NHANES III and as having a …

526.3 – Liver Proteomic Profile in Mice on a High-Fat Diet: Modulation with Anti-Tumor Intervention

Presenting AuthorUniversity of Michigan ntroduction: Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is becoming a primary cause of liver damage in Western society. Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is an advanced stage of NAFLD and may lead to liver cancer. Our previous long-term murine studies have shown the beneficial role of Aquamin, a red marine algae-derived (calcium, magnesium, additional …

Inverse association between serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

AbstractBackground & AimsSerum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (S-25(OH)D) and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are correlated in many observational studies, whereas the causality of this association is uncertain, especially in European populations. We conducted a bidirectional Mendelian randomization study to determine the association between S-25(OH)D and NAFLD. MethodsSeven and six independent genetic variants associated with S-25(OH)D and …
