Hepato-Biliary Diseases

Hepato-biliary disease includes a heterogeneous group of liver and biliary system caused by bacterial, viral and parasitic infections, toxic chemicals, alcohol consumption, metabolic disorders, cardiac failure and neoplasia. Some of the hepato-biliary disease appears to be a genetically determined metabolic trait; the physiological abnormality underlying the formation of gallstones is accumulation of bile supersaturated with cholesterol causing cholesterol gallstones. Recent progress in the molecular biology and genetic control of lipoproteins and lipids metabolism may provide an opportunity for new studies on these diseases.
