Novel protocol including liver biopsy to identify and treat CD8+ T-cell predominant acute hepatitis and liver failure
from John Wiley & Sons Ltd via PubMed
In the majority of children with ALF, the etiology is unknown and liver transplantation is often needed for survival. A patient case prompted scientists to consider that immune dysregulation may be the cause of indeterminate acute hepatitis and liver failure in children. This study includes nine pediatric patients treated under a multidisciplinary clinical protocol to identify and treat immune-mediated acute liver injury.
