The investigators analyze the diagnostic efficacy of blood ammonia, neurophysiological/psychological tests and blood markers on MHE; to see the progression of HE under the condition of the drugs intervention and no drugs intervention in clinical real world.
In China, hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a common complication and one of the most serious manifestations of liver disease, not only increasing the risks of death, but also seriously affecting the lives of the patients and their caregivers. CHE includes the 1st stage of HE and minimal encephalopathy (MHE). It has indicated in a study that the mortality rates of covert hepatic encephalopathy (CHE) and overt hepatic encephalopathy (OHE) were both high (21% and 21.8% respectively). At present, CHE, especially MHE, is not easy to diagnose in daily clinical work. This study aims to early diagnose MHE and find suitable treatment to benefit patients. The investigators analyze the diagnostic efficacy of blood ammonia, neurophysiological/psychological tests and blood markers on MHE; to see the progression of HE under the condition of the drugs intervention and no drugs intervention in clinical real world.

A test to detect non-agglutinating ANTIBODIES against ERYTHROCYTES by use of anti-antibodies (the Coombs' reagent.) The direct test is applied to freshly drawn blood to detect antibody bound to circulating red cells. The indirect test is applied to serum to detect the presence of antibodies that can bind to red blood cells.
