The Role of Bacterial Overgrowth and Delayed Intestinal Transit in Hepatic Encephalopathy

Hepatic encephalopathy is a frequent and occasionally refractory complication of cirrhosis and is associated with impaired quality of life. Its severity may not correlate with other parameters of liver dysfunction. Although multiple pathogenic mechanisms for the condition have been proposed, most include the participation of bacterial toxins, especially ammonia, produced ...


HEAL STUDY (Hepatic Encephalopathy and Albumin Study)

Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a highly prevalent neuro-cognitive complication of cirrhosis characterized by cognitive dysfunction, and high rate of subsequent mortality and recurrence. HE also places a tremendous burden with a relentless increase in inpatient stay duration with charges topping $7244.7 million in 2009. There were almost 23,000 hospitalizations for ...


Rifaximin Soluble Solid Dispersion (SSD) Tablets Plus Lactulose for the Treatment of Overt Hepatic Encephalopathy (OHE)

The primary objective of this study is to assess the efficacy of rifaximin SSD plus lactulose versus placebo plus lactulose for the treatment of overt hepatic encephalopathy (OHE). The secondary objectives of this study are to assess the safety of rifaximin SSD in subjects with OHE and to assess the ...


Fecal Microbiota Transplant as Treatment of Hepatic Encephalopathy

Decades of investigation demonstrate that hepatic encephalopathy (HE), a common complication of cirrhosis characterized by impaired cognition, develops as a consequence of intestinal microbial products reaching the brain. Recent investigation has found that cirrhotic patients, especially those who have developed HE, have intestinal dysbiosis compared to normal controls. Several plausible ...
