Pilot Study Of The Effect Of Rifaximin On B-Cell Dysregulation In Cirrhosis

We intend to enroll 18 patients with cirrhosis who do not have hepatic encephalopathy to prospectively evaluate the impact of rifaximin on B-cell phenotype and function. We plan to employ a randomized, double-masked, prospective crossover design to minimize bias. Subjects will be randomized to receive either rifaximin SSD 80mg or ...

Phase N/A

DAAs Treatment for Chronic HCV/HBV Co-infection Patients(DASCO)

Patients who receive direct-acting anti-HCV treatment will be prospectively studied during 2-year period. All patients have HCV/HBV co-infection. The inclusion/exclusion criteria and the follow up plan will be listed in following part.

Phase

A Study to Evaluate the Safety Antiviral Effect and Pharmacokinetics of Celgosivir in Combination With Peginterferon Alfa-2b and Ribavirin in Treatment-Na ve Patients With Chronic Hepatitis C

The objective of this study is to undertake an initial evaluation of the safety, tolerability, antiviral effect, and pharmacokinetics of celgosivir in combination with peginterferon alfa-2b and ribavirin in patients with chronic HCV infection.

Phase

Continuing Treatment With Pegasys and Copegus

Prospective, multicentre, randomized, open-label comparative study According to our national guideline of management of patient with chronic viral hepatitis, patients need to stop therapy if they do not achieve response. These patients can enter to the study at two time points: - at week 16, if HCV RNS PCR measured ...

Phase

Pegylated-Interferon and Ribavirin Plus Metformin in the Treatment of Chronic HCV Infection and Insulin Resistance

Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is associated with an increased risk for the development of type 2 diabetes and HCV infection itself may promote insulin resistance, irrespective of the severity of liver disease. - In patients with HCV infection, an increase in fasting insulin levels is associated with the ...

Noninvasive Evaluation of Hepatic Fibrosis in Chronic Hepatitis C

Chronic viral hepatitis C is a frequent liver disease. It is associated with variable degree of hepatic fibrosis. To date, liver histology is still regarded as the gold standard to detect, diagnose and quantify liver fibrosis. This requires to perform a liver biopsy. Severe complications are associated to this procedure ...

Phase N/A

Prevention of Depression With Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Chronic Carriers of Hepatitis C Treated With Interferon Alpha.

Omega-3 fatty acids are known as an alternative treatment for different conditions, including mental conditions, such as depression. We assume that combining omega-3 with the treatment by interferon alpha may prevent the development of depression, which is quite a common side effect of the interferon alpha.

Phase

RIBAJUSTE Clinical Trial Investigating the Efficacy and Safety of Dose Adaptation of Ribavirin

The aim of this study is to compare two therapeutical strategies concerning the combination therapy (peginterferon alfa-2a and ribavirin) in naïve patients with chronic hepatitis C of genotype 1. "Reference" strategy corresponding to standards of care recommended by the French consensus conference versus "Test" strategy corresponding to adaptation strategy of ...

Phase

Phase IV Study to Evaluate the Efficacy/Safety to Extend Treatment and High Dose of Ribavirin in co-Infected Patients

The PRESCO study (ribavirin dose 1000-1200 mg/day) emphasized that optimal ribavirin exposure seems to be crucial to maximize sustained virological response and minimize the incidence of relapses after treatment discontinuations. Recent reports showed that it is beneficial to extend the treatment duration in patients without rapid virological response at 4 ...

Early Prediction of Successful Treatment for Chronic Hepatitis C Virus Infection in Taiwan

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a global health problem, which may lead to chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis, hepatic decompensation and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). [1,2] Recently, treatment with peginterferon alfa plus ribavirin has become the standard of care for patients with chronic hepatitis C. While genotype 2 patients can have higher ...
