Liver Functions

Functions of the liver include:

Production of Bile,  which helps carry away waste and break down fats in the small intestine during digestion,

Production of proteins for blood plasma and detoxification of blood.

Hepatology

Hepatology is the branch of medicine that incorporates the study, prevention and diagnosis of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas as well as management of their disorders but is not limited to, the study of acute and chronic hepatitis, viral hepatitis, genetic and metabolic liver diseases and their complications.

Translational Hepatology

The fundamental concept underlying the Translational Hepatology is that human disease can serve as a window into broad biological processes, the understanding of which could, in turn, lead to treatments for these and other diseases.

Liver Pathology

The study of Liver diseases is called Liver pathology. Liver diseases can be inherited or caused by a variety of factors that damage the liver, such as viruses and alcohol use. Liver diseases include the following conditions: Cirrhosis, Inflammation or hepatitis.

Liver Disease Diagnosis

Liver disease can often be difficult to diagnose because its symptoms can be vague and easily confused with other health problems. Blood tests can look for the presence of liver inflammation or screen for antibodies or virus particles that might indicate a specific form of liver Disease. These tests are called Liver Tests.

Liver Disease Complications

These include high blood pressure in the veins that supply the liver, swelling inthe legs and abdomen, enlargement of spleen, bleeding, infections, malnutrition, jaundice, bone diseases, increased risk of liver cáncer and acute-or-chronic cirrosis.

Immunology of Hepatobiliary systems

The hepatobiliary system is essential for digestion and includes: the liver, pancreas, bile ducts and the gallbladder. Many disorders and diseases can affect these organs of hepatobiliary system. Immunology deals with the defence mechanisms including all physical, chemical and biological properties of the organism that help it to combat its susceptibility to foreign organisms, material, etc.

Gastroenterology

The medical specialty devoted to the study, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the digestive system. These disorders may affect the esophagus (swallowing tube), stomach, small intestine, large intestine (colon), rectum, liver, gallbladder, or pancreas.

Digestive Disorders

Digestive disorder is any health problems that occurs in the digestive tract. Some common problems include Heart burn/GERD, Irritable bowel syndrome and Lactose intolerence. Symptoms may include Bloating, diarrhoea, gas, stomach pain and stomach cramps.

Liver Cancers

It is also known as Hepatic Cancer, which starts in the liver. It is a condition that happens when normal cells in the liver become abnormal and grow out of control into cáncer.

Liver Cirrhosis

Cirrhosis is a slowly progressing Disease in which healthy liver tissue is replaced with scar tissue, eventually preventing liver from functioning properly. The scar tissue blocks the flow of blood through the liver and slows the processing of nutrients, hormones, drugs and naturally produced toxins.

Liver Hepatitis

Hepatitis is swelling and inflammation of liver. Hepatitis is most commonly caused by viral infection. Other causes of Hepatitis include autoinmune hepatitis (a disease occuring when the body makes antibodies against the liver tissue) and hapatitis that occurs as a secondary result of medications, drugs, toxins and alcohol.

Liver Failure

Liver failure is a life threatening condition that demands urgent medical care. Most often, liver failure occurs gradually and over many years. Rare condition known as acute liver failure occurs rapidly within 48hrs and difficult to detect initially.

Liver Regeneration

The liver has a remarkable capacity to regenerate after injury and to adjust its size to match its host. Within a week after partial hepatectomy, which, in typical experimental settings entails surgical removal of two-thirds of the liver, hepatic mass is back essentially to what it was prior to surgery.

Transplantation Biology

The science of transferring a graft from one part of the body to another or from one individual to another is known as Transplantation. The graft may consist of an organ, tissue, or cells. If donor and recipient are the same individual, the graft is autologous. If donor and recipient are genetically identical it is syngeneic. If donor and recipient are any other same-species individuals, the graft is allogeneic. If the donor and recipient are of different species, it is called xenogeneic.

Transplantation & Immunosuppressive Management

Immunosuppression involves an act that reduces the activation or efficacy of the immune system. Some portions of the immune system itself have immunosuppressive effects on other parts of the immune system, and immunosuppression may occur as an adverse reaction to treatment of other conditions.

Transplantation Complications

Complications of a liver transplant can include rejection, an increased risk of infection, graft failure, biliary conditions and a higher risk of developing certain conditions – including some types of cancer.

Posttransplantation Care

After liver transplantation care must be taken because the complications don’t arise soon after the transplantation. They may arise after 2 or 3 weeks. Hence patients must be shifted to ICU and must be under observation. This is known as Post Transplantation care.

*Unofficial 2014 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 with the number of times they are cited in 2014 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2014 than, impact factor = Y/X
