Disease relevance of Bile


High impact information on Bile

  • It was concluded that the development of ceftriaxone-induced biliary sludge is a solubility problem that occurs in patients receiving high-dose treatment (greater than or equal to 2 g) [6].
  • Ceftriaxone, a semisynthetic third-generation cephalosporin, has recently been associated with biliary sludge formation [6].
  • Biliary sludge was found to be sediment composed of cholesterol monohydrate crystals and bilirubin granules embedded in a matrix of mucus gel [7].
  • CONCLUSIONS: Patients with SCI above T10 have an increased incidence of biliary sludge and a decreased gall bladder fasting volume [8].
  • The composition of biliary "sludge" and the preferential localization of mucin and proteins could be an indicator for its potential role in gallstone formation [9].
