Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) reflects a spectrum of neuropsychiatric abnormalities seen in
patients with liver dysfunction after exclusion of other known brain disease.
Classification of hepatic encephalopathy is based on the clinical setting in which symptoms
occur (Table 1).1 The encephalopathy of acute liver failure shares clinical characteristics with
that of cirrhosis, but also exhibits unique features. In cirrhosis, three major syndromes can
Probiotics may exert a multidirectional effects
affecting the gene expression in intestinal cells. A number of positive effects of
probiotics have been indicated, particularly their beneficial effect in the pathologic
conditions including antibiotic-associated traveler's diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome
(IBS), lactose intolerance, dental caries, gastroduodenal ulcers due to Helicobacter
pylori, hepatic encephalopathy, intestinal motility disorders and neonatal necrotizing

The prion protein (PrP) is the key protein implicated in transmissible
spongiform encephalopathies. It is a metalloprotein that binds manganese
and copper. The latter is involved in the physiological function of the pro-tein. We have previously found that PrP expression inPichia pastorisaffects
intracellular metal ion concentrations and that formation of protease-resistant PrP is induced by additional copper and⁄or manganese.

The general physical examination in a delirious patient should include a careful screening for signs of infection such as fever, tachypnea, pulmonary consolidation, heart murmur, or stiff neck. The patient's fluid status should be assessed; both dehydration and fluid overload with resultant hypoxia have been associated with delirium, and each is usually easily rectified. The appearance of the skin can be helpful, showing jaundice in hepatic encephalopathy, cyanosis in hypoxia, or needle tracks in patients using intravenous drugs.
Mutations in neuroserpin anda1-antitrypsin cause these proteins to form
ordered polymers that are retained within the endoplasmic reticulum of
neurones and hepatocytes, respectively. The resulting inclusions underlie
the dementia familial encephalopathy with neuroserpin inclusion bodies
(FENIB) and Z a1-antitrypsin-associated cirrhosis.
Kuru was the first chronic degenerative disease of man shown to be a slow
virus infection, with incubation periods measured in years and with a pro-
gressive accumulative pathology always leading to death. This established
that virus infections of man could, after long delay, produce chronic degenera-
tive disease and disease with apparent heredofamilial patterns of occurrence,
and with none of the inflammatory responses regularly associated with viral
