Hepatology is the branch of medicine that incorporates the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas function as well as management of their disorders. The study of these organ deals with the understanding of clinical syndrome of non-cirrhotic portal hypertension and Congenital Hepatic Fibrosis; study the biological processes underlying the development of hepatic regeneration and study aspects of viral hepatitis that allow insight into disease mechanisms.

Diagnosis for Liver diseases has been advocated with the intention of intervening to halt its progression. Abnormal liver tests are those that measure synthesis of proteins made by the liver (albumin, clotting factors) or the liver's capacity to metabolize drugs. The impact of diagnosis of hepatitis C virus on quality of life is worse in patients aware of their viral status compared with individuals unaware of their viral status. Ultrasound-based transient elastography is the advanced technology more commonly used for the assessment of chronic liver diseases. It is also used to predict complications in patients with Liver cirrhosis.

The best way to prevent hepatitis is by getting the hepatitis vaccines. Vaccination is safe and effective and it is recommended for all. Efforts to develop a hepatitis C vaccine started more than 20 years ago, when the hepatitis C virus was identified. The hepatitis C virus is more variable than are the viruses that cause hepatitis A and hepatitis B. Hepatitis C virus occurs in at least six genetically distinct forms with 50 subtypes. A global vaccine would have to protect against all these variants of the virus.

 Liver is required for many important functions in the body. It helps in food digestion, store energy and remove poisons. If liver becomes diseased or injured, the loss of those functions can cause significant damage to the body. There are different forms of liver disease that affect men, women and children. These diseases include cirrhosis, alcohol abuse, hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and hemochromatosis. The main symptoms of liver imbalance include weakness and fatigue, weight loss, nausea, vomiting, and yellow discoloration of the skin (jaundice).

Treatment of Hepatitis is on the cutting edge of medicine. Hepatitis B virus infection (HBV) has been recognized as a major health problem worldwide and Hepatitis C virus infection is the most common chronic blood borne infection in the United States. Viral hepatitis treatment depends on how active the virus is in your body. Viral hepatitis is the most common cause of hepatitis worldwide. Other causes of non-viral hepatitis include alcoholic hepatitis and autoimmune hepatitis.

Hepatocellular carcinoma accounts for most liver cancers. This type of liver cancer occurs more often in men than women and is usually seen in people age 50 or older. It is commonly associated with cirrhosis and hepatitis. The incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma is highest in Asia and Africa, where the endemic high prevalence of hepatitis B and hepatitis C strongly predisposes to the development of chronic liver disease and subsequent development of hepatocellular carcinoma. Other risk factors can include a history of alcohol abuse.

The pancreas and biliary tract is crucial secondary organ for the human digestive system as when they don't work properly, it affects the entire body. Pancreatic and biliary tract problems can cause severe abnormalities such as stomach pain, bloating, nausea and vomiting. Anyone with such symptoms, especially when they are severe and long lasting, should see a doctor immediately as to receive perfect care and prevention.

Liver transplantation surgery technique to replace a diseased or injured liver with a healthy liver delivered from a healthy person. The liver is involved in various metabolic functioning including metabolism of drugs and toxins, removing degradation products of normal body metabolism (for example clearance of ammonia and bilirubin from the blood), and synthesis of many important proteins and enzymes (such as factors necessary for blood to clot). Doctors or surgeons suggest liver transplant surgery to the patients who suffer from severe Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) or Chronic liver failure. This surgery carries a risk of other complications including infection, liver inflammation, blood clots, liver rejection, memory and thinking problems.

Pancreas transplantation is a surgical treatment which enables a patient to implant a healthy pancreas from a donor. It involves many obligations due to post surgery complications like rejection and pancreatic cancers which can even lead to patient’s death. Pancreatic transplantation is performed on the patients suffering with type 1 diabetes, brittle diabetes and hypoglycaemia unawareness. The majority of pancreas transplantation (>90%) is performed together with kidney transplantation.

Bile is a fluid that is made and released by the liver and stored in the gallbladder. Bile helps with digestion. It breaks down fats into fatty acids, which can be taken into the body by the digestive tract. Bile contains mostly cholesterol, bile acids and bilirubin. It also contains water, body salts, copper and other metals.
