OBJECTIVES:
To analyze the effect of human leukocyte antigen tissue typing on outcome of live-donor liver transplant.
MATERIALS AND METHODS:
Fifty recipients underwent live-donor liver transplant in the Dar Al-Fouad Hospital in Egypt and were retrospectively evaluated. Patients were classified into 2 groups: those with human leukocyte antigen +ve, and those with human leukocyte antigen -ve and donors. Hepatitis C virus-related end-stage liver disease was the main indication for transplant. Demographic data, preoperative laboratory data, results of human leukocyte antigen tissue typing, Child score, model for end-stage liver disease score, graft/recipient weight-ratio, ischemia times, surgical complications, postoperative laboratory data, liver biopsy, immunosuppression, and pulse steroids were collected. Graft and patient survivals were studied using Kaplan-Meier curves.
RESULTS:
The mean model end-stage liver disease score was 18 ± 3.61 in group 1 and 17.73 ± 3.72 in group 2, with no significant difference. Graft/recipient weight ratio, ischemia times, and postoperative complications showed P = NS. Cyclosporine and tacrolimus were used in 5/9, 8/41, and 4/9 in group 1, and 32/41 in group 2 (P = NS). Rejection and pulse steroids were reported in 3/9 and 12/41 of group 1, and 3/12 and 11/41 of group 2 (P = NS). Hepatitis C virus-recurrence was diagnosed in 5/9 of patients (55%) and 8/41 of patients (29.5%) in groups 1 and 2 (P < .05). No statistical difference was found regarding mortality; 5-year patient and graft survival was 35/50 (70% in group 1 [human leukocyte antigen +ve]), 7/9 (77.8%), and 28/41 in group 2 (68.3%) (human leukocyte antigen -ve).
CONCLUSIONS:
Positive human leukocyte antigen typing before live-donor liver transplant has no effect on the incidence of postoperative complications, rejection episodes, and patient or graft survival. Recipients with positive human leukocyte antigen typing may have increased risk of hepatitis C virus-recurrence after live-donor liver transplant.

Phrenic nerve is the main nerve drive to the diaphragm and its injury is a well-known complication
following cardiac surgeries. It results in diaphragmatic dysfunction with reduction in lung
volumes and capacities. This study aimed to evaluate the objectivity of lung volumes and capacities
as an outcome measure for the prognosis of phrenic nerve recovery after cardiac surgeries. In this
prospective experimental study, patients were recruited from Cardio-Thoracic Surgery Department,
Educational-Hospital of College of Medicine, Cairo University. They were 11 patients with right
phrenic nerve injury and 14 patients with left injury. On the basis of receiving low-level laser irradiation,
they were divided into irradiated group and non-irradiated group. Measures of phrenic nerve
latency, lung volumes and capacities were taken pre and post-operative and at 3-months follow up.
After 3 months of low-level laser therapy, the irradiated group showed marked improvement in the
phrenic nerve recovery. On the other hand, vital capacity and forced expiratory volume in the first
second were the only lung capacity and volume that showed improvement consequent with the recovery
of right phrenic nerve (P value <0.001 for both). Furthermore, forced vital capacity was the single
lung capacity that showed significant statistical improvement in patients with recovered left
phrenic nerve injury (P value <0.001). Study concluded that lung volumes and capacities cannot
be used as an objective outcome measure for recovery of phrenic nerve injury after cardiac surgeries.

Soft corals of the genus Lobophytum, a marine invertebrate, have shown diverse biological activities as antiinflammatory, cytotoxic, and antibacterial. Our research is concerning with biological screening and discovering bioactive substances from the Red Sea soft coral Lobophytum pauciflorum. In vitro cyclooxygenase inhibitory activity using COX-1 and COX-2 kits and antimicrobial screening were carried out for n-hexane, dichloromethane, ethyl acetate and methanol fractions. The isolated compounds were elucidated using different spectroscopic methods including nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectrometry. Also n-hexane fraction was subjected to GC/MS analysis. Bioassay guided fractionation resulted in isolation and characterization of two bio-active metabolites nephthenol (2) and gorgost-5-ene-3β-ol (3) with significant in vitro antiinflammatory activity against COX-1 and COX-2 compared to Indomethacin and Celecoxib. Four other compounds were also isolated: Heptadecan-1-ol (1), palmitic acid (4), stearic acid (5) and batilol (6). The isolated compounds showed antimicrobial activity ranging from 25 μg/ml to 50 μg/ml against the tested microorganisms. The fatty acid constituents of the n-hexane fraction were identified by GC/MS analysis; results revealed the presence of hexadecanoic acid, methyl ester as major saturated fatty acid and 7,10-hexadecadienoic acid, methyl ester as major unsaturated fatty acid.
Keywords: Lobophytum pauciflorum, gorgost-5-ene-3β-ol, nephthenol, COX-1, COX-2 and GC/MS.
