EBL Versus EBL and Propranolol for the Prevention of Variceal Rebleeding in Pts With Previous Variceal Treatment

Both propranolol and endoscopic band ligation (EBL) are effective for prevention of variceal rebleeding. Recently several studies compared the efficacy of EBL alone and with a combination of propranolol and EBL. However, the results of recent studies showed discrepancy. In addition, most of all recent studies included patients without previous ...


Statin for Preventing Hepatocellular Carcinoma Recurrence After Curative Treatment

This is a multi-center double-blind randomized placebo-controlled trial. A total of 240 patients with HCC at BCLC stage 0 or A will be enrolled from 8 hospitals in Taiwan. After complete ablation or hepatic resection of the tumor(s), participants are randomized 1:1 to receive either atorvastatin 10mg once daily (intervention ...


TACE+RFA Versus TACE Alone for Intermediate-stage Hepatocellular Carcinoma

The current standard treatment for intermediate-stage HCC (BCLC stage B) is transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) alone.The combination of TACE with RFA has also reported to be an effective treatment for HCC. Some prospective studies have shown TACE combined RFA to have better efficacy than any of them alone for early ...


Clinical Trial for GALNT14 Genotype - Guided Sorafenib in Combination With TACE in Hepatocellular Carcinoma

The strategy of TACE + sorafenib is now being intensively investigated. It is a safe approach with significant beneficial effect on TTP in some studies, but the beneficial effect on OS remains uncertain. In the present study, we hypothesized that the GALNT14 genotype might play a role in this issue. ...


Endoscopic Band Ligation (EBL) Versus Propranolol for Primary Prophylaxis of Variceal Bleeding

Current guidelines recommend prophylactic treatment with propranolol or endoscopic band ligation (EBL) to prevent variceal bleeding in patients with medium or large varices. However, it is unclear which treatment is more useful in regard to prevention of variceal bleeding as well as safety. In addition, the efficacy and safety of ...


Induction of Immunity Against Measles in Pediatric Liver Transplant Recipients

Eligible children in Group 2 will receive a standard dose (0.5 ml) of MMR vaccine during the first medical visit (V1). The lot number and the expiration date will both be recorded on the patient's case report form (CRF). A serological evaluation 4-8 weeks after MMR will identify children requiring ...


Preoperative High Dose Steroids for Liver Resection- Effect on Complications in the Immediate Postoperative Period

Post-surgery, patients are traditionally observed and treated in post-anesthesia care units (PACU) until they are discharged to the ward (or directly home) assessed by standardized international discharge criteria. The research project "Why in PACU?" (Rigshospitalet, Denmark), has since the beginning of 2016 systematically collected and analyzed procedure-related complications in the ...


A Randomized Control Trial of Vitamin D Prophylaxis in the Prevention of Hypertensive Disorders of Pregnancy

Optimizing Vitamin D status during pregnancy it thought to have maternal, fetal, and neonatal benefit. Studies suggest that Vitamin D acts well beyond its most commonly thought of role in establishing calcium homeostasis and maintaining maternal and neonatal skeletal integrity. Vitamin D has also been found to modulate the maternal ...


Rifaximin Reduces the Complications of Decompensated Cirrhosis: a Randomized Controlled Trial

Cirrhotic patients are predisposed to intestinal dysmotility, bacterial overgrowth, and increased intestinal permeability all leading to an increase in bacterial translocation and increased endotoxemia. Cirrhotics with bacterial translocation and endotoxemia manifest hemodynamic derangement with lower systemic vascular resistance, higher cardiac output, and lower mean arterial pressure. Moreover, endotoxins may increase ...


Effect of Entecavir Treatment on Regression and Disease Outcome in HBV-induced Liver Fibrosis and Cirrhosis Patients

Patients who have completed 2-years entecavir-based treatment in Regress Study will receive another 5-years entecavir extension therapy. Patients will be assessed at baseline and every six months for blood cell count, liver function test, HBVDNA, AFP, prothrombin time, liver ultrasonography, and Fibroscan; A third liver biopsy will be performed at ...
