Danish destruction[edit]

The Danish Cochrane group has again rubbished a treatment so commonly used in hepatology. This time it's steroids in alcholic hepatitis: http://www.blackwell-synergy.com/doi/abs/10.1111/j.1365-2036.2008.03685.x JFW | T@lk 10:59, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Steroids work (again)[edit]

doi:10.1136/gut.2010.224097 - this is a meta-analysis that we probably ought to include. Not a word about pentoxyfylline of course. JFW | T@lk 12:43, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Liver transplantation is sometimes good as a rescue treatment, but there will be debate about suitability in people with a long history of alcoholicism. doi:10.1056/NEJMoa1105703. JFW | T@lk 22:54, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
