Liver transplantation : clinical assessment and management by James Neuberger( )

22 editions published between 2013 and 2021 in English and held by 814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Welcome to the second edition of Liver Transplantation. Since the first edition, there have been many changes in the management of patients with liver disease, both before and after transplantation and this new edition reflects this. As with the first edition, the aim of the volume is to provide a concise, practical and authoritative guide for junior medical staff and other health professionals working in liver transplant units, for health care professionals looking after those patients with liver disease who are or may become liver transplant candidates and those following liver transplantation. We have expanded both the number and reach of authors, with consequent increase in chapters. We have sought to represent the breadth of liver transplant medicine across Europe and North America, while recognizing also the role of liver transplantation in the rest of the world. We appreciate that this means some duplication and occasional divergence of views. We have intentionally retained these so that each chapter is entire of itself and the reader understands where there is uncertainty. We are very grateful to the authors who have written and revised their contributions during the height of the Covid pandemic. We are grateful to those at Wiley Blackwell, especially Jennifer Seward and Pri Gibbons, for the help and patience and, most importantly to our partners and children who have been patient with us during the preparation of this second edition"--
Pirfenidone in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis: Expert Panel Discussion on the Management of Drug-Related Adverse Events by Ulrich Costabel( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pirfenidone is currently the only approved therapy for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, following studies demonstrating that treatment reduces the decline in lung function and improves progression-free survival. Although generally well tolerated, a minority of patients discontinue therapy due to gastrointestinal and skin-related adverse events (AEs). This review summarizes recommendations based on existing guidelines, research evidence, and consensus opinions of expert authors, with the aim of providing practicing physicians with the specific clinical information needed to educate the patient and better manage pirfenidone-related AEs with continued pirfenidone treatment. The main recommendations to help prevent and/or mitigate gastrointestinal and skin-related AEs include taking pirfenidone during (or after) a meal, avoiding sun exposure, wearing protective clothing, and applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with high ultraviolet (UV) A and UVB protection. These measures can help optimize AE management, which is key to maintaining patients on an optimal treatment dose
