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

Safety and Performance Trial of DIALIVE Liver Dialysis Device in Acute On Chronic Liver Failure Patients

The First-In-Man study will evaluate the safety and performance of DIALIVE Liver Dialysis Device in Acute on Chronic Liver Failure (ACLF) patients and will compare the outcome with patients treated under standard of care (SOC). The hypothesis is that DIALIVE will significantly improve the prognosis of ACLF patients by modulating ...

Phase N/A

Oral Fecal Transplant in Cirrhosis

Hepatic encephalopathy affects 30-45% of patients with cirrhosis and adversely affects survival in these patients. The mainstay of treatment for hepatic encephalopathy (HE) has long been the manipulation of the gut microbiota through antibiotics, prebiotics or probiotics. The current first and second line therapies for HE in the US are ...

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 ...

Collection of Samples From Pregnant Women for the Evaluation of Preeclampsia (Pre-E) Biomarkers

Eligible subjects will provide written informed consent after which demographic and baseline clinical data will be recorded. Collection of whole blood and urine samples will be performed at one or more clinic visits from pregnant women carrying a single fetus with no known fetal abnormalities. Interim study visits will continue ...

Phase N/A

13C-Methacetin Breath Test for the Prediction of Outcome in ALF

The importance of identifying the patient with ALF who is likely to die without a liver transplant cannot be overstated and has remained a primary focus of clinical investigation for 25 years. Traditional scoring systems and prognostic models, such as King's College Criteria (KCC), Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) and ...

The Effect of Somatostatin for Treatment of Post Hepatectomy Liver Failure (PHLF)

Post hepatectomy liver failure (PHLF) is a serious medical problem could lead to patient death, however, definite treatment strategy has not been established. The liver is a regenerating organ and the possibility of PHLF could be reduced when the appropriate liver regeneration is guaranteed. Portal flow has known to be ...
