Safety and Diagnostic Efficacy of Mangoral in Patients With Abnormal Liver Cells and Reduced Kidney Function

2019-10-15 11:11:22 | BioPortfolio


The overall objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and diagnostic efficacy of Mangoral in liver MRI in patients with known or suspected focal liver lesions and severe renal impairment. The diagnostic efficacy of Mangoral will be assessed in terms of visualization of detected focal liver lesions in combined MRI (CMRI: combined Mangoral-enhanced and unenhanced MRI) compared to unenhanced MRI.


The overall objective of this multicenter, open-label, study is to evaluate the safety and diagnostic efficacy of Mangoral in patients with known or suspected focal liver lesions and severe renal impairment. Study treatment is a single oral dose of Mangoral (800 mg manganese chloride [II] tetrahydrate, 500 mg L-alanine, and 800 IU vitamin D3). Adult male and female patients with severe renal impairment or acute kidney injury and who are being evaluated for known or suspected focal liver lesions will be included. Primary diagnostic efficacy in terms of visualization of detected lesions will be evaluated centrally by 3 independent readers. Study MRIs will also be evaluated by the on-site radiologists for the assessment of secondary objectives and for clinical purposes.

A Phase II Study of DMP 115 to Assess Focal Liver Lesions

To determine the optimal dose of DMP 115 to image liver lesions and to assess whether contrast can improve the detection of focal liver lesions.

Ultrasound Elastography in Diagnosing Patients With Kidney or Liver Solid Focal Lesions

This clinical trial studies ultrasound elastography in diagnosing patients with kidney or liver solid focal lesions. New diagnostic procedures, such as ultrasound elastography, may be a le...

Characterization of Focal Liver Lesions by Real-Time Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound Imaging (CEUS)

The conventional sonography is frequently used to detect incidental focal liver lesions because of its availability, innocuity and low cost. Nevertheless, sensibility and specificity of co...

Non-Invasive Characterization of Focal Liver Lesions in Liver Cirrhosis

This study aims to analyze non-invasive characterization focal liver lesions in patients with liver cirrhosis. The diagnostic accuracy and predictive value of non-invasive methods is studi...

Interventional Sonography Guided by Image Fusion

The purpose of this study is to register the precision of image fusion between live sonography and CT, MRI or PET/CT of liver lesions and other focal lesions in the abdomen. To test whethe...

Automatic classification of focal liver lesions based on MRI and risk factors.

Accurate classification of focal liver lesions is an important part of liver disease diagnostics. In clinical practice, the lesion type is often determined from the abdominal MR examination, which inc...

Value of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in Focal Liver Lesions (FLL) with inconclusive findings on cross-sectional imaging.

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) has been used as an additional imaging technique in order to evaluate focal liver lesions. CEUS is easy and fast to perform, overcomes the limitations of B-mode US.

Anatomic Risk Factors for Focal Cartilage Lesions in the Patella and Trochlea: A Case-Control Study.

Focal cartilage lesions in the patellofemoral (PF) joint are common. Several studies correlated PF risk factors with PF instability, anterior knee pain, and PF arthritis; however, there is a lack of e...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Functional KIDNEY FAILURE in patients with liver disease, usually LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL), and in the absence of intrinsic renal disease or kidney abnormality. It is characterized by intense renal vasculature constriction, reduced renal blood flow, OLIGURIA, and sodium retention.

Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level in the ability to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal insufficiency can be classified by the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE. The most severe form is KIDNEY FAILURE. Renal function may deteriorate slowly (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, CHRONIC) or precipitously (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, ACUTE).

Severe systemic manifestation of trauma and ischemia involving soft tissues, principally skeletal muscle, due to prolonged severe crushing. It leads to increased permeability of the cell membrane and to the release of potassium, enzymes, and myoglobin from within cells. Ischemic renal dysfunction secondary to hypotension and diminished renal perfusion results in acute tubular necrosis and uremia.

Severe inability of the LIVER to perform its normal metabolic functions, as evidenced by severe JAUNDICE and abnormal serum levels of AMMONIA; BILIRUBIN; ALKALINE PHOSPHATASE; ASPARTATE AMINOTRANSFERASE; LACTATE DEHYDROGENASES; and albumin/globulin ratio. (Blakiston's Gould Medical Dictionary, 4th ed)

Bis(nitrato-O)dioxouranium. A compound used in photography and the porcelain industry. It causes severe renal insufficiency and renal tubular necrosis in mammals and is an effective lymphocyte mitogen.
