A Study of Oryz-Aspergillus Enzyme and Pancreatin Tablet in Patients With Cirrhosis and Malnutrition

2019-08-20 20:17:13 | BioPortfolio


The investigation is a randomized, double-blind, placebo involved and multi-center clinical trial. All subjects are assigned to 2 groups, including Oryz-Aspergillus Enzyme and Pancreatin tablet group (treatment group) and the placebo group (control group). Treatment group includes 99 subjects, while control group includes 33 subjects. They receive investigational drug 2 tablets/times, tid, p.o. for 180 days.


- A total of 132 subjects with cirrhosis were divided into 3 subgroups by Child-Pugh score, which were Child-pugh Class A, B, and C, respectively. Each subgroup includes 44 subjects, which were randomly assigned to the Oryz-Aspergillus Enzyme and Pancreatin tablet group (treatment group) and the placebo group (control group) in a ratio of 3: 1 (33: 11).

- Patients who have signed the Informed Consent Form and are eligible for the entry criteria will be randomly assigned to either the Oryz-Aspergillus Enzyme and Pancreatin tablet group or the placebo group. No matter which group the subjects is assigned, he/she would receive treatment drugs through oral administration for 180 days, during which the participant will not take any investigational drug.

- The differences in nutritional status between treatment group and control group will be compared in 90 and 180 days by MAMC and SGA.

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.

Infections of the nervous system caused by fungi of the genus ASPERGILLUS, most commonly ASPERGILLUS FUMIGATUS. Aspergillus infections may occur in immunocompetent hosts, but are more prevalent in individuals with IMMUNOLOGIC DEFICIENCY SYNDROMES. The organism may spread to the nervous system from focal infections in the lung, mastoid region, sinuses, inner ear, bones, eyes, gastrointestinal tract, and heart. Sinus infections may be locally invasive and enter the intracranial compartment, producing MENINGITIS, FUNGAL; cranial neuropathies; and abscesses in the frontal lobes of the brain. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1998, Ch 27, pp62-3)

Hypersensitivity reaction (ALLERGIC REACTION) to fungus ASPERGILLUS in an individual with long-standing BRONCHIAL ASTHMA. It is characterized by pulmonary infiltrates, EOSINOPHILIA, elevated serum IMMUNOGLOBULIN E, and skin reactivity to Aspergillus antigen.
