Advances in Liver Diseases and Transplantation 2017

04/01/2017 - 04/01/2017

Liver diseases and associated complications remain a significant source of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Chronic liver disease can lead to the development of both cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma with liver transplantation as the only life saving option. Significant advances have been made or are on the immediate horizon for liver diseases such as hepatitis C, hepatitis B and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. These advances, if disseminated to patients in need, have the possibility of affecting the burden of liver diseases in the US. Information about evidence-based recommendations for screening, diagnosis, and treatment of patients with liver diseases is important in order to provide optimal care and appropriate triage of patients. Clinical skills to manage patients with cirrhosis…

2017 Inflammatory Bowel Diseases and Other Inflammatory Pathologies of the GI Tract

04/29/2017 - 04/29/2017

The incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) continues to rise in the world, and now affects more than 1.6 million Americans. We currently have a better understanding of the pathogenesis of IBD, allowing for the development of new therapies targeting the inflammatory pathways. Hence, the management of this complex disease is in turn becoming complex, where the clinician needs to use evidence-based medicine to personalize the use of the appropriate therapy for each individual patient. Becoming familiar with therapeutic drug monitoring and disease monitoring is essential in order to maximize the therapeutic benefit of drugs and the chance of maintaining IBD patients in remission and preventing complications. Patient with long standing IBD carry an increased risk of colon cancer, and…
