Conversion to Everolimus From Calcineurin Inhibitor With Mycophenolic Acid: Impact on Long Term Renal Function in Liver Transplantation.

Given the increasing proportion of patients having renal failure at the time of transplant, with the nephrotoxic effect of calcineurin inhibitor based immunosuppression associated with its long term negative survival impact, this study proposes to examine the renal sparing impact of conversion to everolimus from a calcineurin inhibitor based immunosuppressive ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

RICE Trial: Rifaximin In Chronic Hepatic Encephalopathy - A Randomized Controlled Trial

Background: Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a reversible process resulting from advanced liver disease. It can range in severity from disturbed sleep patterns to profound coma and can be triggered by a number of common factors, including intestinal bleeding, infection, constipation, and dietary changes. This study will compare two different medications, ...

A Multi-Center Trial to Study Acute Liver Failure in Adults

Although ALF is truly an orphan disease affecting only about 2,000 persons per year, its severity, its frequency among young adults, and its high resource utilization justifies the attention paid to it. In addition, ALF has captured the interest and attention of researchers because of its unique pathogenesis and extreme ...

Phase N/A

Preoperative Glucose Infusion: a Novel Strategy to Improve Liver Function After Liver Resection

Background. With a reported incidence of up to 70%, liver failure is the most frequent complication necessitating intensive care and prolonging hospital stay. Animal studies suggest that the glycogen content of the liver is a key regulator of liver function and that glycogen depletion, a mandatory consequence of preoperative fasting, ...
