The HOPE Study: Characterizing Patients With Hepatitis B and C

Hepatitis B virus chronically infects 350 million people worldwide and over one million Americans and approximately 4.1 million individuals (1.6%) in the US population have been infected with hepatitis C. These infections are the leading cause of end-stage liver disease, cancer and indication for liver transplantation in the world. Both ...

Phase N/A

Neutrophil Function During Therapy With Protease Inhibitors in Chronic Hepatitis C

Chronic hepatitis C infection (CHC) is a major health problem, potentially leading to liver related mortality via complications of liver cirrhosis or hepatocellular carcinoma, and affects more than 185 million persons worldwide. Antiviral therapy evolved during the past 25 years from standard interferon, the combination with ribavirin and pegylated interferon ...

Phase N/A

A Trial Of Intravenous N-Acetylcysteine In The Management Of Antituberculous Drug-Induced Hepatitis

South Africa has a huge tuberculosis (TB) disease burden, with 948 per 100 000 people diagnosed with TB in 2008. TB drug induced hepatitis (DIH) is a common adverse effect of TB therapy that causes significant patient morbidity and prolonged hospital stays. N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) has been extensively studied and used ...

Current Treatment of HCV Infection After HSCT

Introduction According to previous EBMT studies, approximately 6% of HSCT recipients were HCV-positive (Locasciulli et al. Transplantation 1999). Despite the fact that HSCT recipients with chronic HCV infection are prone to HCV-morbidity (end stage liver disease, hepatocellular carcinoma, the need for liver transplant), only about half (44% and 61%) of ...

Phase N/A

N-ACetylcysteine to Reduce Infection and Mortality for Alcoholic Hepatitis

Recent data have suggested that monocyte oxidative burst defect is associated with the development of infection in patients with severe alcoholic hepatitis. One report found reduced 28 day mortality in patients treated with N-acetylcysteine combined with prednisolone when compared to prednisolone alone. The current study seeks to reveal whether the ...

Phase

Hepatitis B in Cystic Fibrosis and Latent Tuberculosis Respectively

Initially, healthy volunteers will be vaccinated to be compared with patients' antibody response to hepatitis A and B vaccine. The connected part of this study is to vaccinate children suffering from latent tuberculosis against hepatitis B and to measure whether the immunization is related to specific interferon gamma response against ...

Phase N/A

SOF Plus DCV in Treating Chinese Treatment-experienced HCV Patients

Chinese genotype 1b HCV treatment-experienced cirrhotic patients are recruited and treated with 12 weeks sofosbuvir 400 mg daily plus daclatasvir 60 mg daily. At baseline, liver stiffness measurement (LSM) using transient elastography (FibroScan) is used to assess liver fibrosis and the single nucleotide polymorphism ofinterferon- 3 (IL-28, rs12979860, C or ...

Phase

Optimizing HBV Management During Anti-CD20 Antibodies

The use of immunosuppressive cytotoxic therapy in patients with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is known to be associated with potentially fatal HBV reactivation. Prophylactic nucleoside analogue therapy has been shown to reduce the rates of HBV reactivation in hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg)-positive subjects, and is now recommended ...

Phase N/A

Macrophage Activation Markers During Sofosbuvir-based Treatment Regimes of Chronic Hepatitis C

The purpose of the study is to investigate how the liver is affected with regard to inflammation and fibrosis during Sofosbuvir based treatment regimes of chronic hepatitis C. In order to examine how the liver heals, we want to use blood samples to check for the occurrence of special liver ...

Phase

Surveillance and Treatment of Prisoners With Hepatitis C

The study will be conducted initially in two maximum security prisons located in New South Wales, Australia and comprises four phases: Phase 1, Surveillance of HCV Incidence and Prevalence and Liver Disease Burden: The HCV incidence and prevalence phase is a prospective longitudinal cohort. HCV incidence and prevalence and liver ...
