Vitamin B3


We need about 10 to 20 milligrams per day (1 milligram = 0.001 gram) of nicotinic acid.In the intestinal tract, the amino acid tryptophan can be converted to niacin by bacterial action and thus can serve as a source for part of the niacin we need.Some doctors recommend inositol hexaniacinate for people who need large amounts of niacin because it has not been linked with any of the usual niacin toxicity in scientific research.
Vitamin B3 is essential for normal growth and for healthy skinWhen used as therapy for a specific disease, niacin, niacinamide, and inositol hexaniacinate are taken in dosages much higher than nutritional needs, about 1 to 4 g daily.
Because of the risk of liver inflammation at these doses, medical supervision is essential.

Hepatitis F


Hepatitis F is one of the major types of Hepatitis which affects
a large number of people all over the world. This is also known as
a hypothetical virus which is popularly linked to hepatitis.
The hepatitis F is one of the diseases which has spread mostly during
the 1990s. 

This is also known
as a nonexistent virus as well.
The Virus of the Hepatitis F is known to be Rounded 27-37 nm
and they
are also known as Virus-Like Particles (VLP). This is one
of the types of viruses which contain a double stranded DNA along
with 20 bk. There are similar agent that was also detected
from stools of human patients. The virus was also seen
in the cytoplasm of hepatocytes.

This was seen only in one experimental monkey. In infected animals
viral antigens as well as the elevation of transaminases tend to
appear in an average of 20 days. It is the liver morphology
that shows the picture of an acute hepatitis. In around 20%
of the cases, the hepatitis is fatal.
Some of the major symptoms of Hepatitis F includes fever, fatigue,
loss of appetite, abdominal pain, anorexia, dark urine, jaundice,
nausea as well as vomiting. 

Other than this, you can also notice
that the patient may also have joint pain, diarrhea as well as
itching skin or rash. 
These symptoms are available at the final
stages of the disease.
Hepatitis F is one of those diseases which presently has
no treatment.

Aloe vera

Aloe Vera????..The National Institutes of Health is concerned that chronic high-dose ingestion of aloe vera may induce liver inflammation. Limited scientific evidence exists for the use of aloe to treat disease.... Cases of acute hepatitis have been reported after as little as four weeks of aloe ingestion. Tell your doctor about everything you take, including herbal supplements......?

Liver Biopsy Part II




A liver biopsy is a procedure for the diagnosis of abnormal liver conditions.
There are several methods of obtaining biopsies of the liver, but unless it is an unusual situation, the most common method is percutaneously ("through the skin"). A percutaneous biopsy involves numbing a small area of skin over the lower right side of the chest (this site is directly over the liver).
A local anesthetic (usually Lidocaine or Novocaine) is injected with a needle. The needle is introduced further with additional injections of anesthetic all the way through the chest wall and into the liver. This numbs the tract that the biopsy needle will take and reduces discomfort.
Next, a special biopsy needle is inserted into the same area, and, with the patient holding his or her breath, the biopsy needle is inserted quickly into the liver and withdrawn. (The insertion and withdrawal of the biopsy needle takes only a second or two.) Suction through the needle, applied via an attached syringe, causes a small piece of liver (the biopsy) to be pulled into the needle and cut off from the rest of the liver. Other types of biopsy needles have a spring loaded cutting mechanism to obtain the liver tissue without the use of the syringe suction.
If there is a question about the exact position of the liver or a specific part of the liver is to be biopsied, an ultrasound of the liver may be performed before the biopsy to determine the exact direction for the biopsy needle to be inserted.
There may be varying amounts of discomfort at the site of the biopsy especially after the effect of the anesthetic wears off. Most patients have minimal pain, but some require medication for pain which lasts up to a few hours.
What are possible complications of a liver biopsy?

The most common complication of liver biopsy is bleeding from the liver at the site of the biopsy. This occurs in approximately one out of every 100 patients who are biopsied. The bleeding usually (50-75% of the time) is not heavy enough to require blood transfusions. In rare cases (less than 1 biopsy in a thousand), the bleeding may not stop and surgery is required to stop it. Fatal complications have been reported in up to 0.038% of biopsied patients.

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B virus causes a life-threatening liver infection that often leads to chronic liver disease and puts people at high risk of death from cirrhosis of the liver and liver cancer. Hepatitis B virus infection is a major global health problem. Worldwide, an estimated two billion people have been infected with the hepatitis B virus (HBV), and more than 350 million have chronic (long-term) liver infections.
A vaccine against hepatitis B has been available since 1982. Hepatitis B vaccine is 95% effective in preventing HBV infection and its chronic consequences, and is the first vaccine against a major human cancer. 

The vaccine has an outstanding record of safety and effectiveness. Since 1982, over one billion doses of hepatitis B vaccine have been used worldwide. In many countries where 8% to 15% of children used to become chronically infected with HBV, vaccination has reduced the rate of chronic infection to less than 1% among immunized children.
As at December 2007, 171 countries reported that they had included the hepatitis B vaccine into their national infant immunization programmes (two of these countries reported introducing in part of the country only). 
This is a major increase compared with 31 countries in 1992, the year that the World Health Assembly passed a resolution to recommend global vaccination against hepatitis B.
