Disease relevance of Liver Abscess


High impact information on Liver Abscess

  • Metronidazole and hepatic abscess. A false-positive response [5].
  • Decreased uptake of 67gallium citrate (67Ga) by a bacterial hepatic abscess. Report of a case [6].
  • In contrast, a diverse set of genes is specifically upregulated, encoding ribosomal proteins (S30, L37A), cyclophilin, ferredoxin 2 and GTP-binding protein RAB7D, supporting the notion that liver abscess formation requires the regulation and concerted action of a variety of amoeba proteins [7].
  • To our knowledge, we report the first case of enterococcal liver abscess following moxalactam therapy [8].
  • Primary liver abscess caused by second-generation cephalosporin-resistant K. pneumoniae strains may be an emerging problem in Taiwan [9].
