A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Background: Alagille syndrome (ALGS) is a multisystem disorder, characterized by cholestasis. Existing outcome data are largely derived from tertiary centers and real-world data are lacking. This study aimed to elucidate the natural history of liver disease in a contemporary, international, cohort of children with ALGS. Methods: Multicenter retr...
Objectives: Most patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) also have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The liver and colon express MAdCAM-1, a target of lymphocyte homing integrins. Vedolizumab (VDZ) is an α4β7 integrin antibody used to treat IBD. We investigated liver outcomes in children with PSC-IBD treated with VDZ. Methods: Patient...
Background & aims: Disease progression in children with primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is variable. Prognostic and risk-stratification tools exist for adult-onset PSC, but not for children. We aimed to create a tool that accounts for the biochemical and phenotypic features and early disease stage of pediatric PSC. Approach & results: We us...
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), especially when associated with primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), is a risk factor for developing colorectal cancer (CRC).1-3 We aimed to determine the incidence of CRC in a large cohort of pediatric-onset PSC-ulcerative colitis (UC) patients.
Similarity Network Fusion (SNF) is a novel methodological tool that integrates multiple different types of data to identify homogeneous subsets of patients in whom disease classification may be otherwise unclear or challenging. In this review article, the authors hope to provide insight into how SNF can be used in clinical decision making where the...
Background and aims: Ten to 20% of children with autoimmune hepatitis require second-line therapy to achieve remission. Although current guidelines exist on first-line management, evidence for second-line therapy in treatment-refractory patients is lacking. Our aim was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of the efficacy and safety of...
Background & aims: Adult studies of autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) have shown that the model of end-stage liver disease (MELD) is associated with resistance to first-line treatment. Using a multi-centre retrospective database, we sought to determine if the pediatric end-stage liver disease (PELD) score would similarly predict treatment resistance in p...
