Alcoholic liver disease is a leading cause of mortality. Chronic alcohol consumption is accompanied by intestinal dysbiosis, and development of alcoholic liver disease requires gut-derived bacterial products. However, little is known about how alterations to the microbiome contribute to pathogenesis...

Leukotrienes are proinflammatory mediators. Ethanol inhibits the catabolism of both cysteinyl leukotrienes (leukotriene E(4) [LTE(4)] and N-acetyl-LTE(4)) and leukotriene B(4) (LTB(4)) in hepatocytes. We examined the metabolic derangement of leukotriene inactivation by ethanol in humans in vivo. LTE(4), N-acetyl-LTE(4), LTB(4)...

Myocardial contrast echocardiography during angiography is critical in identifying appropriate septal perforator(s) for alcohol septal ablation (ASA) in patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. We evaluated whether there were other angiographic and/or echocardiographic markers that might identify patients who are anatomically...
