RESULTS

Found (135) clinical trials

The goal of the OPTIMAL study is to gradually reduce anti-rejection medication(s) in liver transplant recipients over a period of time until the medication(s) are stopped. This is called immunosuppression withdrawal. As part of the OPTIMAL study, investigators will also do blood and liver biopsy tests to see whether they ...

Phase N/A

The main focus of this study is to develop blood and/or urine tests that will help to detect early signs of rejection in people who have had a liver transplant. Researchers will examine blood, urine, and tissue samples and try to identify markers for certain conditions such as rejection, response ...

Eating Behaviour and Gustatory Sensitivity Before and After Liver Transplant in Cirrhotic Patients

Today, we know that olfactogustatory alterations occur in cirrhotic patients before the liver transplant but no study has been conducted to show eventual disturbances after the transplantation able to explain modifications in eating behaviour. In parallel, the metabolic status, itself dependent on liver metabolism, influences food preferences and is modified ...

Phase N/A

Australian and New Zealand Massive Transfusion Registry

Severe and unstopped blood loss can occur for a number of different reasons including after a serious injury, delivery of a baby and following other medical and surgical emergencies. The investigators understanding of how to best treat people with serious bleeding is still incomplete, with many questions remaining. These include ...

SVC and Its Relationship to CVP Measurements in Liver Transplantation

Central venous pressure (CVP) measured invasively through a central venous catheter in the internal jugular vein or through a right atrial port of a pulmonary artery catheter is commonly used during liver transplant surgery. CVP measurements at the SVC-RA junction are a function of circulating blood volume, right ventricle function, ...

Ventral Hernia Prevention After Liver Transplantation

Ventral hernia is a frequently occurring complication following liver transplantation, with a reported risk in the literature ranging from 5% to 25%. This study aims to evaluate if the risk of developing ventral hernia after liver transplantation can be reduced through the prophylactic implantation of a synthetic mesh "Phasix" in ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy of Low Dose SubQ Interleukin-2 (IL-2) to Expand Endogenous Regulatory T-Cells in Liver Transplant Recipients

A common complication of organ transplantation is 'rejection' of the transplanted organ. This occurs when the body's immune system tries to attack (or reject) the transplanted organ. Drugs known as immunosuppressants (anti-rejection medications) are prescribed for patients after transplantation to prevent rejection. But, anti-rejection medications are associated with significant side ...

Phase

Adapted Physical Activity Effect on Aerobic Function and in Patients in Pre Liver Transplantation

Physical exercise has been identified as a major beneficial factor in the management of patients suffering from many chronic diseases especially cancer and in the context of cardiac or pulmonary transplantation. It contributes to an improvement of the quality of life and decreases treatment side effects and mortality. Aerobic fitness ...

Identification of Genetic Polymorphism Related to Acute Kidney Injury After Liver Transplantation Through Genome-wide Association Study (GWAS) in Korean Population

Some of the liver transplantation recipients experience postoperative acute kidney injury due to various causes including genetic factors. Prevention of postoperative acute kidney injury is essential for postoperative care in liver transplantation recipients. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between gene polymorphisms and the occurrence of ...

Phase N/A

Living Donor Liver Transplantation for Unresectable Colorectal Cancer Liver Metastases

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. Approximately half of all patients develop metastases, often to the liver or lung. Surgical treatment of liver metastases (LM) is the only curative treatment option; however, it has been estimated that only 20-40% of patients are candidates for liver ...
