Molecular Adsorbent Recirculating System (MARS ) in Hypoxic Hepatitis

Hypoxic hepatitis (HH) is reported to be the most frequent cause of elevated aminotransferase levels in hospital. Up to 10 % of critically ill patients develop HH during the course of their intensive care unit (ICU) stay. Occurrence of HH is a life threatening event and ICU-mortality is reported to ...

Quantitative Liver Function Tests Using Cholates

This study involves using the dual cholate test as our quantitative liver function test of choice. Clearance of the oral cholate provides an assessment of portal blood flow. Clearance of the intravenous (IV) cholate provides an assessment of the systemic blood flow. The ratio of these clearances indicates the fraction ...

A Trial of Ribavirin in Patients With ACLF Due to Hepatitis E Virus

The term Acute on chronic liver failure (ACLF) describes a clinical entity characterized by an acute and rapid deterioration of liver function in a patient with previously well-compensated liver disease owing to the effects of a precipitating event. In this condition two insults act simultaneously, one being the preexisting liver ...

A Phase II Study of Weekly Genexol-PM in Patients With Hepatocelluar Carcinoma After Failure of Sorafenib

Hepatocelluar carcinoma (HCC) is a highly vascular neoplasm characterized by arterial enhancement on CT or MRI. Angiogenesis provides a target for novel prognostic and therapeutic approaches to HCC. Sorafenib is the standard 1st-line therapy shown to significantly improve overall survival in advanced HCC. However, sorafenib benefits are mostly transient and ...

Phase

Pembrolizumab in Advanced Hepatocellular Carcinoma as Second-line Treatment After Failure of Sorafenib

Each subject will participate in the trial from the time the subject signs the Informed Consent Form (ICF) through the final contact. After a screening phase of up to 28 days, eligible subjects will receive treatment beginning on Day 1 of each 3week dosing cycle for pembrolizumab. Treatment with pembrolizumab ...

Phase II Safety Study of 2 Dose Regimens of HepaStem in Patients With ACLF

The study will assess the safety of different dose regimens of HepaStem in cirrhotic Patients with ACLF or with acute decompensation at risk of developing ACLF up to Day 28 of the active study period.

Phase

Safety Study of Calcineurin-Inhibitor-Free Immunosuppression After Liver Transplantation

A prospective, non-randomized two stage monocentric phase II clinical trial to evaluate a de-novo calcineurin-inhibitor (CNI)-free immunosuppressive regimen based on induction therapy with anti-CD25 monoclonal anti-body (basiliximab), mycophenolic acid (MPA), and mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) - inhibition with everolimus to determine its safety and to investigate the preliminary efficacy ...

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 ...
