Deciphering the molecular pathways needed to restore monocyte dysfunction during Acute-on-chronic liver failure KU Leuven
Acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) is characterized by a rapid deterioration of liver function and organ failure. This syndrome is a devastating clinical entity, associated with extremely low patient survival (28-day mortality rate 30-40%). A paralysis of the immune system and susceptibility to infections often precipitate this syndrome and there are currently no targeted strategies to combat these complications in ACLF patients. ...
Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease – the role of adipose tissue in the development of NASH: a translational study KU Leuven
Cirrhosis has multiple etiologies and initial triggers, however, a common feature during disease pathology is the development of hepatic inflammation and the development of fibrosis. Both resident liver macrophages (Kupffer cells) as well as infiltrating monocyte-derived macrophages play a central role in initiation and maintenance of inflammation, as well as fibrogenesis through the activation of hepatic stellate cells. To exert these ...

ProSteR: Radiation-induced leukaemia in children: response of hematopoietic stem cells to photon and proton therapy Ghent University
Epidemiological studies have highlighted that leukemia can be considered as the most important
malignancy after radiation exposure during childhood. The high risk is related to the high sensitivity
of the bone marrow at young ages. Since the red bone marrow harbors hematopoietic stem and
progenitor cells (HSPCs), a better understanding of the response to protons and photons of these
HSPCs is warranted, particularly in ...
