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


The study aim to identify the risk factors of liver fibrosis among first degree relatives. This study consists of 2 parts (Cross Sectional and Case Control Study).

Part 1: The first primary objective will be achieved by following study design. Study population: First degree relatives of NRC. Study design: A Cross Sectional Study

Part 2 The second Primary objective will be achieved by following study design. Study design: A Case Control Study

Study population:

Case: NASH related Cirrhosis patients Control-1: Healthy Control. Control-2: HBV Disease Control Study period: 3 Years

All the patients diagnosed with NASH cirrhosis attending Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences OPD/IPD will be enrolled. An informed consent will be taken. Complete details of the subject will be taken. The data will be collected on socio-demographic by (socio-demographic questionnaire), alcohol by AUDIT-C (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test), Tobacco by FTND (Fagerstrom Test Nicotine Dependence), physical activity by IPAQ (International Physical Activity Questionnaire), Diet by FFQ (Food Frequency Questionnaire) & physical measurement.

Blood will be collected and analyzed for Platelets, PT/INR, Serum Creatinine, LFT, FBS, HOMA-IR, Lipid Profile, HBsAg, AntiHBs, Anti HBc, Anti HCV, Anti HAV, IgM anti HAV, IgM anti HEV, auto-Immune markers, Ceruloplasmin, Transferrin, S.Ferritin, Alpha1antitrpsin and genetic markers.

The stool will be collected and analyzed for gut microbiota profiling.
