Evaluation of the Role of Plasma Biomarkers in the Development of Decompensation in Patients With Cirrhosis .

2017-03-20 21:23:22 | BioPortfolio


This is a single-center and prospective study to identify specific biomarker in order to predict development of decompensation in cirrhotic patients.

The duration of the study is 36 months and it provides a cohort of 200 patients.


At screening, patient will have taken blood samples and performed HVPG. After randomization, patient will be seen at follow up every 3 months to do blood sample and every 12 months to undergo HVPG, according to the guidelines.

In addition, metabolomics analysis will be performed at screening and every 3 months. The results will be analyzed in relation to emergence of decompensation during follow up period, in order to identify specific metabolomics characteristics that may be able to predict decompensation.

Role of Nitric Oxide in Cirrhosis: Relationship With Systemic Hemodynamics, Renal Function, Vasoactive Systems and Endotoxemia

This study is to determine whether a compound, nitric oxide, made within the body, is the factor responsible for the changes in blood pressure and renal (kidney) functions that may occur d...

Intestinal Barrier Function and Liver Cirrhosis

Patients with liver cirrhosis have an increased risk to develop life-threatening complications such as spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP). Impairment in the intestinal barrier, change...

Fecal Microbiota Transplantation for Decompensated Cirrhosis

Imbalance of gut bacteria is suspected to play a key role driving the progression of cirrhosis and there is hope manipulation of these bacteria may be beneficial. This study will determine...

Phase 1 Study of L-NMMA in Patients With Liver Cirrhosis

Phase 1 study of the effects of nitric oxide inhibition with L-NMMA in patients with liver cirrhosis and healthy controls. It is hypothesized that nitric oxide availability is increased in...

A Trial Comparing Entacavir and Tenofovir in Patients With HBV Decompensated Cirrhosis

Entacavir and tenofovir are two first line therapies for chronic hepatitis B. Both agents have been claimed equivalent in treatment, there are no head to head trials available in the liter...

Hospitalizations Due to Cirrhosis: Clinical Aspects in a Large Cohort of Italian Patients and Cost Analysis Report.

Liver cirrhosis is characterized by high morbidity and mortality rates. This study was addressed to evaluate the epidemiological and economic impact of cirrhosis on hospitalizations in a large populat...

A glycomics-based test predicts the development of hepatocellular carcinoma in cirrhosis.

Cirrhosis is a major risk factor for the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but remains underdiagnosed in the compensated stage. Fibrosis progression and cirrhosis are associated with chan...

The association between individual metabolic syndrome components, primary liver cancer and cirrhosis: a study in the Swedish AMORIS cohort.

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is associated with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, which may progress to cirrhosis, a significant risk factor of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the commonest malignant pr...

Liver cirrhosis in England-an observational study: are we measuring its burden occurrence correctly?

Mortality due to liver disease (of which cirrhosis is the end stage) is increasing more than any other chronic condition in the UK. This study aims to demonstrate that (1) exclusive reliance on mortal...

Clinical Characteristics and prognostic factors of liver cirrhosis patients with Systemic inflammatory response syndrome.

Current assessment of prognostic factors in cirrhosis patients with SIRS is not accurate. There are few reports in the literature, which makes it difficult to determine an indication for cirrhosis pat...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Experimentally induced chronic injuries to the parenchymal cells in the liver to achieve a model for LIVER CIRRHOSIS.

FIBROSIS of the hepatic parenchyma due to obstruction of BILE flow (CHOLESTASIS) in the intrahepatic or extrahepatic bile ducts (BILE DUCTS, INTRAHEPATIC; BILE DUCTS, EXTRAHEPATIC). Primary biliary cirrhosis involves the destruction of small intra-hepatic bile ducts and bile secretion. Secondary biliary cirrhosis is produced by prolonged obstruction of large intrahepatic or extrahepatic bile ducts from a variety of causes.

FIBROSIS of the hepatic parenchyma due to chronic excess ALCOHOL DRINKING.

Abnormal increase of resistance to blood flow within the hepatic PORTAL SYSTEM, frequently seen in LIVER CIRRHOSIS and conditions with obstruction of the PORTAL VEIN.

Liver disease in which the normal microcirculation, the gross vascular anatomy, and the hepatic architecture have been variably destroyed and altered with fibrous septa surrounding regenerated or regenerating parenchymal nodules.
