Safety Study of Calcineurin-Inhibitor-Free Immunosuppression After Liver Transplantation

A prospective, non-randomized two stage monocentric phase II clinical trial to evaluate a de-novo calcineurin-inhibitor (CNI)-free immunosuppressive regimen based on induction therapy with anti-CD25 monoclonal anti-body (basiliximab), mycophenolic acid (MPA), and mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) - inhibition with everolimus to determine its safety and to investigate the preliminary efficacy ...


A Trial of Ribavirin in Patients With ACLF Due to Hepatitis E Virus

The term Acute on chronic liver failure (ACLF) describes a clinical entity characterized by an acute and rapid deterioration of liver function in a patient with previously well-compensated liver disease owing to the effects of a precipitating event. In this condition two insults act simultaneously, one being the preexisting liver ...


Molecular Adsorbent Recirculating System (MARS ) in Hypoxic Hepatitis

Hypoxic hepatitis (HH) is reported to be the most frequent cause of elevated aminotransferase levels in hospital. Up to 10 % of critically ill patients develop HH during the course of their intensive care unit (ICU) stay. Occurrence of HH is a life threatening event and ICU-mortality is reported to ...


The Role of Bacterial Overgrowth and Delayed Intestinal Transit in Hepatic Encephalopathy

Hepatic encephalopathy is a frequent and occasionally refractory complication of cirrhosis and is associated with impaired quality of life. Its severity may not correlate with other parameters of liver dysfunction. Although multiple pathogenic mechanisms for the condition have been proposed, most include the participation of bacterial toxins, especially ammonia, produced ...


Phase II Safety Study of 2 Dose Regimens of HepaStem in Patients With ACLF

The study will assess the safety of different dose regimens of HepaStem in cirrhotic Patients with ACLF or with acute decompensation at risk of developing ACLF up to Day 28 of the active study period.


Hepatic Arterial Chemotherapy With Raltitrexed and Oxaliplatin Versus Standard Chemotherapy in Unresectable Liver Metastases From Colorectal Cancer After Conventional Chemotherapy Failure

Standard treatment of metastatic colorectal cancers relies on fluoropyrimidines, irinotecan alone or in association with fluoropyrimidines, oxaliplatin in association with fluoropyrimidines, bevacizumab and anti EGFR antibodies. After failure of classical regimen the national reference frame on the basis of phase II study proposes an association of fluoropyrimidine and mitomycin. These ...


Safety Study of Ornithine Phenylacetate to Treat Patients With Acute Liver Failure

There is strong experimental and clinical rationale for the use of ammonia-lowering therapies in ALF. Ammonia is normally produced in the gut and transformed by the liver into urea. As the liver fails, ammonia increases in the systemic circulation and enters into the brain. The result of a rapid rise ...


Pembrolizumab in Advanced Hepatocellular Carcinoma as Second-line Treatment After Failure of Sorafenib

Each subject will participate in the trial from the time the subject signs the Informed Consent Form (ICF) through the final contact. After a screening phase of up to 28 days, eligible subjects will receive treatment beginning on Day 1 of each 3week dosing cycle for pembrolizumab. Treatment with pembrolizumab ...


Terlipressin Administration in Patients Undergoing Major Liver Resection

Background Surgery offers the only potential cure in many patients with primary or metastatic liver cancer. Extending the limits and improving safety of liver resection would allow more patients to benefit from surgery and to increase their survival. The prerequisite for successful and safe liver surgery is the optimal regeneration ...


Quantitative Liver Function Tests Using Cholates

This study involves using the dual cholate test as our quantitative liver function test of choice. Clearance of the oral cholate provides an assessment of portal blood flow. Clearance of the intravenous (IV) cholate provides an assessment of the systemic blood flow. The ratio of these clearances indicates the fraction ...
