MNK-6105 for Patients With Cirrhosis and High Ammonia Levels Affecting Brain Function

2019-10-21 12:45:26 | BioPortfolio


This study is for patients with cirrhosis and hepatic encephalopathy who are in the hospital. This means they have a high ammonia level which is affecting their brain function.

All patients will receive the standard of (regular) care. Each will have an equal chance (like flipping a coin) of receiving the experimental drug or placebo along with the standard care.

Each patient will have tests during the first 24 hours, receive treatment for up to 5 days, and have 30 days of follow-up.
