The same will be done at the ECVIM congress in Europe, so that both Americans and Europeans will be fully updated about the standardization criteria for hepatobiliary diseases. At the ACVIM forum of the preliminary consensus for a standard about tumors of the liver and cystic diseases will also be presented for discussion at the more informal evening meeting of the SIG for liver diseases. On this historical ground we discussed the biliary diseases of cats, the intra- and extrahepatic bile tree diseases of dogs, and a start was made with the cystic lesions.
In Munich the group was kindly hosted by prof. Hirschberger and his staff in the laboratory for Clinical Pathology of the Veterinary School. This large group of diseases was presented at the Hepatology session of the European Society of Comparative Gastroenterology, in the scientific program of the congress. Jenny Charles Australia presented the standards and definitions of the feline biliary diseases, Dr. Ted van den Ingh The Netherlands did the same for the canine biliary disorders.
Also in Europe the reactions of the delegates of the congress were unanimously positive and supportive. In Munich the discussions about standardization of the cystic lesions of the liver and bile system, and of the primary liver and bililiary tumour diseases, were completed. The last and biggest group of diseases are the parenchymal diseases, amongst which different forms of hepatitis, and all diseases in which the liver is affected as result of a metabolic disorder, or in the course of a reaction to septicemia. In Munich we could already prepare for these diseases.
It is complex group and requires a very careful description and standardization, because there is much confusion in the literature and amongst clinicians and pathologists about these diseases. In Utrecht, The Netherlands, the parenchymal diseases were conclusively discussed so that all diseases now have a standard description with clear criteria, and also a unified name. Here the concepts for publications were discussed in detail, and the final versions will be completed by the end of August.
The publications will be six, one for all but one subgroups vascular, biliary and cystic, and tumor diseases , two for parenchymal diseases, and one introducing publication explaining backgrounds, methods of approach, etc. We have found agreement with the Editor-in-Chief of the electronic scientific Journal in the field: Comparative Hepatology.
The detailed consensus criteria for the liver and biliary diseases of dogs and cats will be published in this Journal, accompanied by all necessary histological figures to illustrate the typical examples of these diseases. Five publications are foreseen in the coming two years. With this Journal we have also reached agreement about the permission to keep the publication rights for a final joint publication of all standards for liver diseases in a monograph, possibly accompanied by a CD-Rom for all the colour slides of the histology.
This monograph in which all standard efforts and descriptions are combined in one volume, can also be expected by the end of Finally, I think the group owes a special word of gratitude to two persons who have been crucial. First of all, Dr. Claudio Brovida, President of the WSAVA until October , who had the vision to help this effort become true, which hopefully sets the stage for more world-wide professional cooperations.
The veterinary world owes him lasting recognition for his vision, and our specialist group feels it as a privilege to be able to complete the first standardization effort. We are glad you stay involved on behalf of the board of the WSAVA, and know we will also have full support and cooperation of your successor as President, prof.

Gabriel Varga. The other word of thank goes to a special member of the Liver Standardization Group, prof. Desmet has been engaged with all human liver standardizations over the past 30 years or more, and he can really be considered one of the co-founders of modern human liver pathology.
The presence of such a great expert in our group has been and will remain being crucially stimulating. Desmet is a pure scientist, open for any scientific argument, and he takes active part in the often sharp, hard, but never personal or unfriendly debates about the issues under discussion. It is the strengths of the group that the arguments can be so open and direct, often sharp, always scientific, never personal.
And when the veterinarians cannot reach agreement it is always the expert in human pathology who helped to find the way out. We as veterinarians cannot overestimate the value of his contribution which he gives just for free, without any personal compensation.
Upon finalization of the liver standardization by the end of we can foresee that there needs to be a continuation of the effort, preferably once every three years, to keep the standards updated and a useful guide to the users in the veterinary world.

When the HPC niche was studied in detail using laser-microdissection, expression of self-renewal and progenitor markers was present, but markers of hepatocyte differentiation were absent.
