A Phase 4 clinical study for patients with Primary biliary cirrhosis

This Phase 4, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, multicenter study is being undertaken at up to 170 sites internationally to evaluate the effect of OCA on clinical outcomes in 428 subjects with PBC. The study will include a screening period of up to 8 weeks, requiring two clinic visits. Eligible participants will ...


Effects of Empagliflozin on Liver Fat Content Energy Metabolism and Body Composition in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

In this multicentre, prospective, placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized, 2-arm parallel, interventional pilot study HCL and intramyocellular lipids (IMCL) will be quantified with 1H magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy. Hepatic ATP and inorganic phosphate (Pi) concentrations will be assessed with 31P MR spectroscopy (1). Whole-body and hepatic insulin sensitivity and metabolic flexibility will ...


SGLT2 Inhibitor Versus Sulfonylurea on Type 2 Diabetes With NAFLD

2. Clinical hypothesis SGLT2 inhibitor ameliorates fatty liver and obesity. SGLT2 inhibitor stimulates sympathetic activity. SGLT2 inhibitor increases glucagon secretion. SGLT2 inhibitor enhances lipolysis and hepatic glucose production.


Effect of Liraglutide on Cardiovascular Endpoints in Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 Patients of South Asian Descent

RECRUITMENT AND SCREENING PROCEDURE OF STUDY POPULATION Patients will be recruited from the outpatient clinics of the Leiden University Medical Center, general practitioners, local hospitals and by advertisement. Patients own physicists will be asked to point eligible patients to the opportunity of study participation. If interested, patients will be informed ...


The EVARREST Paediatric Mild/Moderate Liver and Soft Tissue Bleeding Study

This is an open label, prospective, randomised, multicentre, controlled, clinical study comparing EVARREST to SURGICEL (oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC)) (Control) as an adjunct to haemostasis when conventional methods of controlling mild or moderate bleeding are ineffective or impractical during surgery in paediatric patients. At least 40 qualified paediatric subjects with ...


The Effect of Carvedilol Vs Propranolol in Cirrhotic Patients With Variceal Bleeding

The study is a randomized controlled trial. Patients randomly enter into two treatment groups: 1)the Carvedilol group and 2)the Propranolol group. Treatment allocation is by block randomization, with an equal number for Carvedilol and Propranolol. The results are concealed in opaque envelopes. The dose of non-selective β-blocker(NSBB) is titrated according ...


Use of Omega-3 Fat Emulsion (Omegaven) in Infants With Parenteral Nutrition Associated Liver Disease

Babies in the newborn intensive care unit with evidence of liver damage from TPN, as indicated by a direct bilirubin of greater than 2.5 , and who will not be fed for at least another month will be offered the trial. they will be changed from the intralipid to Omegaven ...


Transhepatic Arterial Chemotherapy (TAC) Versus Transcatheter Arterial Chemoembolization (TACE) Plus Folfox4 as the Treatment of Unresectable Liver Metastasis of Colorectal Cancer

We administered three cycles FOLFOX4 plus TAC(oxaliplatin,FUDR and MMC) or FOLFOX4 plus TACE(oxaliplatin,FUDR,MMC and embolision) to primary colorectal tumor resected patients with unresected liver metastasis. The study endpoints were resection rate of liver metastasis, progression-free survival, overall survival as evaluated by intent-to-treat analysis.


Preoperative Transhepatic Arterial Chemotherapy (TAC) in the Treatment of Liver Metastasis of Resectable Colorectal Cancer

We administered TAC(oxaliplatin,FUDR and MMC) 7 days before liver metastasis resection of colorectal cancer. The study endpoints were progression free survival and overall survival as evaluated by intent-to-treat analysis.


Echocardiographic Assessment of Intrapulmonary Vasodilatation: Agitated Saline Versus Polygeline

Intrapulmonary vasodilatation is a frequent finding in patients with cirrhosis. Its diagnosis is established via contrast enhanced echocardiography. One used method is the contrast agent agitated saline and another frequently used method is the contrast agent polygeline. The purpose of this study is to compare these two echocardiographic contrast agents ...
