— World-renowned band Green Day donated their very first tour bus to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A- Wish. Green Day’s makeshift tour bus is an old bookmobile van that drummer Tre Cool’s dad refurbished into a unique tour bus. The bus also served as the venue for Green Days first interview with MTV News. Without the bookmobile, Green Day wouldn’t have been able to make it to their gigs all over the country. This piece of history isn’t done yet. Wheels For Wishes plans to have the bookmobile restored, after which it will be sent to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame museum in Cleveland. The proceeds from auctioning this donation will go towards helping Make-A- Wish grant wishes to local children.

Summary Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC), primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) and autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) represent the three major autoimmune liver diseases (AILD). PBC, PSC, and AIH are all complex disorders in that they result from the effects of multiple genes in combination with as yet unidentified environmental factors. Recent genome-wide association studies have identified numerous risk loci for PBC and PSC that host genes involved in innate or acquired immune responses. These loci may provide a clue as to the immune-based pathogenesis of AILD. Moreover, many significant risk loci for PBC and PSC are also risk loci for other autoimmune disorders, such type I diabetes, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis, suggesting a shared genetic basis and possibly similar molecular pathways for diverse autoimmune conditions. There is no curative treatment for all three disorders, and a significant number of patients eventually progress to end-stage liver disease requiring liver transplantation (LT). LT in this context has a favourable overall outcome with current patient and graft survival exceeding 80% at 5 years. Indications are as for other chronic liver disease although recent data suggest that while lethargy improves after transplantation, the effect is modest and variable so lethargy alone is not an indication. In contrast, pruritus rapidly responds. Cholangiocarcinoma, except under rigorous selection criteria, excludes LT because of the high risk of recurrence. All three conditions may recur after transplantation and are associated with a greater risk of both acute cellular and chronic ductopenic rejection. It is possible that a crosstalk between alloimmune and autoimmune response perpetuate each other. An immunological response toward self- or allo-antigens is well recognised after LT in patients transplanted for non-autoimmune indications and sometimes termed "de novo autoimmune hepatitis". Whether this is part of the spectrum of rejection or an autoimmune process is not clear. In this manuscript, we review novel findings about disease processes and mechanisms that lead to autoimmunity in the liver and their possible involvement in the immune response vs. The graft after LT. © 2013 European Association for the Study of the Liver.

Liver transplantation, although now a routine procedure, with defined indications and usually excellent outcomes, still has challenges. Donor shortage remains a key issue. Transplanted organs are not free of risk and may transmit cancer, infection, metabolic or autoimmune disease. Approaches to the donor shortage include use of organs from donors after circulatory death, from living donors and from those previously infected with Hepatitis B and C and even HIV for selected recipients. Normothermic regional and/or machine perfusion, whether static or pulsatile, normo- or hypothermic, are being explored and will be likely to have a major place in improving donation rates and outcomes. The main indications for liver replacement are alcoholic liver disease, HCV, non-alcoholic liver disease and liver cancer. Recent studies have shown that selected patients with severe alcoholic hepatitis may also benefit from liver transplant. The advent of new and highly effective treatments for HCV, whether given before or after transplant will have a major impact on outcomes. The role of transplantation for those with liver cell cancer continues to evolve as other interventions become more effective. Immunosuppression is usually required life-long and adherence remains a challenge, especially in adolescents. Immunosuppression with calcineurin inhibitors (primarily tacrolimus), antimetabolites (azathioprine or mycophenolate) and corticosteroids remains standard. Outcomes after transplantation are good but not normal in quality or quantity. Premature death may be due to increased risk of cardiovascular disease, de novo cancer, recurrent disease or late technical problems. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.

A food donation tracking system is provided for tracking food donations along a food donation route that includes a food recipient location and a plurality of food rescue locations. The system includes a display device at each of the food rescue locations, each display device being operable to generate a dynamic unique code specific to the food rescue location where the display device is located. A driver scans the dynamic unique code with a handheld unit. Tracking information is recorded and transmitted from the handheld unit to a central server. The tracking information includes location information identifying the food rescue location of the food donation pickup based on the dynamic unique code scanned at the food rescue location and time information corresponding to when the unique code was scanned at the food rescue location.

Shopping systems and methods that automate the merchandise selection process are implemented for producing picking/shipping documents that allow the merchandise to be picked at a warehouse and sent to recipients. The initiator of the process is a purchaser that specifies the recipients demographics and other parameters as they relate to the merchandise. The purchaser may also specify various constraints that both limit the amount of merchandise selected and filter the merchandise to better match the recipients requirements as a group.
