Biomarkers for Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis
ABSTRACT: For cirrhotic ascitic individuals, spontaneous bacterial peritonitis is a potentially fatal outcome. Other tests for early spontaneous bacterial peritonitis diagnosis were looked upon, despite the fact that an ascitic polymorphonuclear leukocytes count of 250 cells/mm3 remains the gold standard for the diagnosis of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis. This article compiles and evaluates recent studies on spontaneous bacterial peritonitis diagnostic indicators ... Read more

Prognostic factors of short-term mortality in spontaneous bacterial peritonitis patients
INTRODUCTION: In cirrhotic individuals, spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) is one of the most frequent side effects. 1-year mortality is up to 50% even with strong prevention, early diagnosis, and effective care__ AIM: To analyze prognostic factors of short-term mortality in SBP individuals. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In our study, 92 SBP patients were involved. Prothrombin time, international normalized ratio (INR), liver ... Read more

Diagnostic Value of Ascitic Fluid Homocysteine and Calprotectin in  Cirrhotic Patients with Spontaneous Bacterial Peritonitis
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIM: Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) is mainly diagnosed by ascitic polymorphonuclear (PMNL) leukocyte greater than 250/mm3. We intended to assess ascitic homocysteine and calprotectin for SBP diagnosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In our study, we collected ascitic fluids from 70 patients with liver cirrhosis (46 SBP plus 24 non-SBP according to PMNL>250 cells/mm3). Complete blood count, alanine aminotransferase, ... Read more

Managing Spontaneous Bacterial Peritonitis (SBP) Patients During The Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Pandemic
The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a great challenge to medical systems in affected countries. As COVID-19 came to public attention, researchers want to learn more about its spread, mortality rate, and who is most susceptible to have severe disease. Elderly and those with other comorbidities are at the high of a severe illness. Until now, it is still uncertain ... Read more

Evaluation of Aspartate Aminotransferase Platelets Ratio Index (APRI) and FIB-4 as Non Invasive Predictors of Hepatic Fibrosis in Patients with Chronic Hepatitis C
OBJECTIVES: This study aims to assess simple models from routine investigation for prediction of significant fibrosis (Ishak score > 2) and cirrhosis in CHC patients PATIENTS AND METHOD: Our retrospective cohort study studied 100 chronic HCV patients that had liver biopsy. Two indices were assessed, aspartate aminotransferase platelets ratio index (APRI) and FIB-4 to predict significant fibrosis and cirrhosis. RESULT: ... Read more
