The disposition of NRL972 after a 15-second intravenous injection of 2 mg NRL972 is distinctly slower in patients with hepatic cirrhosis and acute hepatitis than in healthy control subjects. NRL972 appears to be a suitable investigational marker of hepatic transporter clearance dysfunction.
Although the pharmacokinetics of NRL972 provide a reliable differentiation between subject groups, this approach relies on precisely timed sampling of venous blood, cautious preparation, handling and on-site storage of plasma samples, the transfer of samples to a central laboratory for analysis, and the availability of a validated assay procedure.
For these reasons, there is interest in developing and validating alternative methods for determining the concentration of NRL972 in venous blood. Two such methods have been developed to date, but their utility in determining NRL972 pharmacokinetics has yet to be established.

A study in healthy volunteers and patients with liver cirrhosis to assess the effects of age, gender, and stable liver disease on the clearance of cholyl-lysyl-fluorescein (NRL972)
The study was conducted to describe and compare the plasma pharmacokinetics of NRL972 administered after a standard meal and while fasted in patients with hepatic cirrhosis (Child-Turcotte...
A study in healthy volunteers to determine whether different drugs metabolised by the liver have any effects on how NRL972 is processed within the body.
Little is known about the nature and extent of the disturbance in hepatic function and biliary hepatic clearance in chronic viral hepatitis, while the course of this disease, the functiona...
This study is to evaluate the predictive value of NRL972 pharmacokinetics in the diagnosis of steatohepatitis using fatty liver disease as the comparator group. In addition, the sensitivi...
Cirrhosis is a chronic disease with high morbidity and mortality. Few studies have evaluated healthcare resource use in patients with cirrhosis.
Injuries are more morbid and complicated to manage in patients with cirrhosis. However, data are limited regarding the relative risk of injury and severity of injury from falls in patients with cirrho...
Although patients with cryptogenic cirrhosis have been historically considered to have "burnt out" nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), some controversy remains. The aim was to compare outcomes of pat...
The mechanism underlying hyperglobulinemia in cirrhosis, a long appreciated phenomenon, has never been clearly understood. The aim of this study is to investigate the basis for changes in humoral immu...
Thrombocytopenia occurs frequently in patients with cirrhosis. The immature platelet fraction (IPF%) is measured to differentiate the causes of thrombocytopenia. To date the relevance of thrombopoieti...
Experimentally induced chronic injuries to the parenchymal cells in the liver to achieve a model for LIVER CIRRHOSIS.
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.
FIBROSIS of the hepatic parenchyma due to chronic excess ALCOHOL DRINKING.
Abnormal increase of resistance to blood flow within the hepatic PORTAL SYSTEM, frequently seen in LIVER CIRRHOSIS and conditions with obstruction of the PORTAL VEIN.
Liver disease in which the normal microcirculation, the gross vascular anatomy, and the hepatic architecture have been variably destroyed and altered with fibrous septa surrounding regenerated or regenerating parenchymal nodules.
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
