Screening At-risk Populations for Hepatic Fibrosis With Non-invasive Markers

This protocol describes a prospective screening study at Odense University Hospital, Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology. The investigators will use liver stiffness measurements with transient elastography to screen 3000 patients from at-risk populations and 1000 participants from the general population for advanced liver fibrosis. At-risk is defined as either (A) ...

Phase N/A

Warfarin Prevents Portal Vein Thrombosis in Liver Cirrhotic Patients With Hypersplenism After Laparoscopic Splenectomy

After successful screening the cases of cirrhosis of liver irrespective of the etiology who have non tumor portal vein thrombosis will be enrolled. The baseline Doppler parameter will be recorded and the patient will be randomized into either interventional (warfarin) or control (aspirin) group. From postoperative day 3, patients in ...

Phase

Feeding Behavior and Taste Sensitivity Before and After Liver or Renal Transplantation

Background and Aims: Protein-energy malnutrition is associated to cirrhosis with a high prevalence and greatly increases the morbidity and mortality of the disease. Malnutrition results of numerous causes including intestinal malabsorption, increased energy resting expenditure, metabolism disturbances, impaired sensory taste and changes in food preferences which might participate to a ...

Phase N/A

The Alfred Step Test Exercise Protocols (A-STEP and A-STEPmax): Developed for Adults With Cystic Fibrosis

Many international centers now regard exercise testing as highly important with many measuring maximal exercise capacity annually to monitor disease progression, identify physical status and to drive changes in medical, physiotherapy or nutritional management (14,15). Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET): The current best practice for assessing VO2max in adults with CF ...

Phase N/A

Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Fibrosis

AORTIC VALVE DISEASE & VENTRICULAR FUNCTION Aortic valve disease is the most common valvular heart disease in Europe (46.4%). The valve can be stenotic (aortic stenosis, AS) or can leak (aortic regurgitation, AR). While mostly elderly patients suffer from AS (a steadily growing group due to the increasing population above ...

Phase N/A

Fibrosis a New Pathological Actor in Adipose Tissue

Adipose tissue (AT) has specific alterations in obesity that could link obesity to its comorbidities. In particular increased fibrosis abundance in AT has been observed in obese compared to lean subjects. The investigators previously observed that the amount of fibrosis in AT measured at baseline could predict surgery-induced weight loss. ...

Phase N/A

Study of Genistein in Pediatric Oncology Patients (UVA-Gen001)

This is a multi-center, randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled crossover study to evaluate the effect of soy isoflavones on the short term untoward effects of myelosuppressive chemotherapy used to treat pediatric cancers. Newly diagnosed cancer patients aged 1-21 years will be registered to the study and informed consent will be obtained ...

Phase

Rituximab Versus Cyclophosphamide in Connective Tissue Disease-ILD

Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is characterised by inflammation and scarring of the lung and is the leading cause of death in patients with systemic sclerosis, and contributes significantly to morbidity and mortality in many other connective tissue diseases (CTDs) such as polymyositis/dermatomyositis and mixed connective tissue disease. When ILD is ...

Phase

Prospective Evaluation of HIV Patients Using Non-invasive Methods for Estimation of Liver Fibrosis and Steatosis

In HIV-positive patients with or without chronic viral hepatitis co-infection, the primary aims of this project are: (i) to estimate the prevalence and incidence of liver injury (including progression of fibrosis, necro-inflammatory activity and steatosis) and to report the normal values of non-invasive methods in HIV population; (ii) to validate ...

Phase N/A

Prevalence of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension in Patients With Connective Tissue Diseases in Egyptian Patients

PH is defined as a mean pulmonary artery pressure greater than 25 mmHg. PAH can be assessed by different means, however right heart catheterization (RHC) is the gold standard diagnostic method . Among the different subgroups of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), those associated with connective tissue diseases (CTDs) are a ...
