Phase

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, ...

Phase N/A

Rifaximin Versus Lactulose in Renal Failure

The purpose of this study is to evaluate patients with cirrhosis of the liver and renal failure and determine if the administration of rifaximin as compared to lactulose is associated with less frequent and/or slower progression to severe hepatic encephalopathy. If one is associated with lower blood ammonia levels. And, ...

Oxidative Stress and Microcirculation in Patient With Hepatic Failure Undergoing Liver Support Treatment

Background: In patients undergoing hemodialysis or hemofiltration will suffer from the injury of reactive oxidative species. Oxidative stress will affect cell membrane, protein, and DNA. It will damage the cell and result in organ dysfunction. We believe that in patients, who have acute hepatic failure, undergoing plasma exchange or Molecular ...

Phase N/A

Indocyanine Green and Portal Pressure in Viral and Alcoholic Cirrhotic Patients With Hepatocarcinoma

The aim of the investigators' study is to elucidate the relationship between a functional liver test (e.g., ICG) and the PREOPERATIVE value of portal hypertension in the patients with impaired liver function from alcoholic and non-alcoholic aetiologies. Alcoholic and viral cirrhosis present important differences in terms of cellular mechanisms responsible ...

Phase N/A

Phase I/II Study of Recombinant Human Hepatocyte Growth Factor in Fulminant Hepatic Failure

Fulminant and late-onset hepatic failure (LOHF) is intractable disease with high degree of fatality (70-80%). Only liver transplantation is established as a therapeutic modality to rescue patients with fulminant hepatic failure or LOHF. However, approximately 75% of the patients are not able to receive liver transplantation in Japan, and effective ...

Phase

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

A Study To Confirm Efficacy and Safety of Terlipressin in HRS Type 1

This is a Phase 3, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter pivotal trial of terlipressin in subjects with HRS type 1. HRS is a rare syndrome of marked renal dysfunction in patients with cirrhosis, decompensated liver disease, and portal hypertension. HRS type 1 is characterized by a rapid progressive renal impairment and ...
