Delayed CNI-based Immunosuppression With Advagraf After MELD-based Liver Transplantation

The MELD-score (model of end stage liver disease) was designed to estimate the prognosis after TIPS (transjugular intrahepatic porto-systemic shunt). Nowadays it is the key-score for patients awaiting a liver graft and consists of serum-creatinine, serum-bilirubine and the INR-ratio with values between 6-40. The MELD-based liver allocation follows the sickest ...

Phase N/A

Liver Test Study of Using JKB-122 in AIH Patients

This is a Phase 2, pilot study in which JKB-122 is given once daily for 24 weeks to subjects with AIH who have liver enzymes that are 1.25 to 10 times the upper limit of normal (ULN) and who have had a failed response to, incomplete response to, intolerant to, ...

Immunization Anti HLA in the Liver Transplant Recipients (DSATH)

Humoral rejection, related to immunization of the patient against the graft, is diagnosed by the presence of DSA. This serious complication, responsible for dysfunction and graft loss in kidney and heart transplant, is treated by strengthening the immunosuppressive treatment. Humoral rejection is poorly characterized in liver transplantation, but might explain ...

Phase N/A

Mobilization of Mesenchymal Stem Cells During Liver Transplantation

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a known immune modulator with significant immunosuppressive effects. MSCs have emerged as a promising frontier in human clinical trials. MSCs have been shown to be non-immunogenic making them capable of transplantation across allogeneic barrier. These qualities make MSCs an ideal candidate to study if they ...

Phase N/A

Umbilical Cord Blood for Stem Cell Transplantation in Treating Young Patients With Malignant or Nonmalignant Diseases

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine the impact of the use of umbilical cord blood as a source of hematopoietic stem cells for children with life-threatening oncologic, hematologic, or genetic/metabolic disorders in need of a stem cell transplant. - Compare the incidence of graft-versus-host disease in patients receiving cord blood transplants in ...

Phase

Conversion of CellCept to Myfortic: A Prospective Study in Liver Transplant Recipients

This is a prospective, single center, open-label, safety and tolerability study on the use of Myfortic after liver transplantation. Adult liver transplant patients who are experiencing GI symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal discomfort/pain, dyspepsia) attributable to CellCept are eligible to enter the study. CellCept will be discontinued and replaced with ...

Phase N/A

Immunity Against Varicella in Pediatric Orthotopic Liver Transplantation Recipients

VZV vaccine given to pediatric liver transplant recipients at least one year after transplantation if tehy fulfill inclusion criteria and give informed consent.

Phase

Effects of Preoperative Long-Term Immunonutrition in Patients Listed for Liver Transplantation

Background. Patients with end stage liver disease characteristically are malnourished which is associated with poor outcome. Formulas enriched with arginine, ω-3 fatty acids, and nucleotides, "immunonutrients", potentially improve their nutritional status. This study is designed to evaluate the clinical outcome of long-term "immunonutrition" of patients with end-stage liver disease while ...

Phase N/A

CPAP in Liver Transplant

Recovery from abdominal surgery is usually fast and uncomplicated but postoperative hypoxemia complicates 30-50 % of cases even in uneventful procedures (1). Although oxygen administration and incentive spirometry are effective in treating the vast majority of postoperative hypoxemia cases (2), respiratory failure may occur early in the postoperative course (3) ...
