High dose UDCA therapy does not improve overall liver histology in obesity related hepatitis
Date:4/16/2010

test results.

No significant difference was seen in overall liver histology or biochemistries between the two treatment groups. Interestingly, beneficial results were seen in intra-acinar inflammation (inflammation of the functional units of the liver) and levels of the enzyme gamma glutamyltransferase (a marker for liver cell damage) in a small population of younger, mildly overweight males, indicating that UDCA therapy may be potentially useful for these patients.

The incidence and prevalence of NASH is increasing , in parallel with rising levels of obesity one of the main risk factors for NASH . With this in mind, it is important to identify effective treatment options to improve the management of patients and prevent progression to cirrhosis an irreversible condition with liver transplant the only definitive treatment.
