2016-08-17 10:53:22 | BioPortfolio


The study will be conducted in the Department of Hepatology, Institute of Liver & Biliary Sciences, New Delhi. As a part of this study history will be taken and clinical examination will be done. Subjects will be screened for diagnosis of NASH (Non Alcoholic Steatohepatitis) cirrhosis. If subjects are found to have NASH (Non Alcoholic Steatohepatitis) cirrhosis, they will be chosen to receive stool from healthy donor, which is voluntarily donated by a healthy donor related or unrelated to the subjects and the stool will be prepared using standard guidelines. The prepared sample of stool, about 50 ml will be instilled into proximal small intestine by way of a thin and soft tube inserted through nose. This administration of sample, 50 ml daily will occur once a month every month for 6 months. The liver function parameters will be assessed and thereafter at 1 month and 3 months & subjects will be clinically assessed for improvement or worsening.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Transfer of GASTROINTESTINAL MICROBIOTA from one individual to another by infusion of donor FECES to the upper or lower GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT of the recipient.

Preparative treatment of transplant recipient with various conditioning regimens including radiation, immune sera, chemotherapy, and/or immunosuppressive agents, prior to transplantation. Transplantation conditioning is very common before bone marrow transplantation.

Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.

An increased liquidity or decreased consistency of FECES, such as running stool. Fecal consistency is related to the ratio of water-holding capacity of insoluble solids to total water, rather than the amount of water present. Diarrhea is not hyperdefecation or increased fecal weight.

Activities related to WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY. Treatment methods include DIET; EXERCISE; BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION; medications; and BARIATRIC SURGERY.
