The aim of this study is to reduce polycystic liver volume by treating with octreotide, whether or not combined with everolimus; to assess whether combination therapy of everolimus and octreotide gives a bigger reduction of polycystic liver volume than octreotide monotherapy.
This is a single center randomized, open-label, parallel study comparing the safety and efficacy of everolimus-octreotide LAR treatment to monotherapy octreotide LAR in adult symptomatic patients with polycystic livers because of polycystic liver disease (PCLD).
We aim to include 44 patients affected by a polycystic liver either due to PCLD, 22 patients in the combination group and 22 patients in the mono therapy group.The duration of the trial will be 52 weeks. The treatment will be 48 weeks and the last control visit will take place four weeks after the treatment.

This study will evaluate the effect of Octreotide LAR® on the liver volumes of patients with severe polycystic liver disease who are not candidates or decline surgical treatments such as ...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether everolimus 10 mg / day added to treatment with depot octreotide prolongs progression free survival compared to treatment with octreotide a...
The underlying hypothesis of the synergistic activity of octreotide and everolimus is based on the combination of a) a direct action of everolimus over mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin)...
This randomized phase II trial studies how well everolimus and octreotide acetate with or without bevacizumab works in treating patients with pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors that cannot b...
RATIONALE: Octreotide may stop or slow the growth of tumor cells and may be an effective treatment for liver cancer. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well octreotide works in ...
Symptoms in polycystic liver disease (PLD) are thought to be caused by compression of organs and structures by the enlarged liver.
Polycystic liver disease is observed in 75-90% of patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). ADPKD has a high prevalence of 1/1000. Hepatomegaly severely reduces quality of li...
There is an ongoing debate if and how kidney and liver volume are associated with pain and gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) patients. Since both k...
In autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, total kidney volume and age can identify patients with progressive disease. Texture analysis of magnetic resonance imaging that computerizes and extrac...
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is emerging as the most common cause of chronic liver disease worldwide. This trend is, in part, secondary, to the growing incidence of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and m...
A complex disorder characterized by infertility, HIRSUTISM; OBESITY; and various menstrual disturbances such as OLIGOMENORRHEA; AMENORRHEA; ANOVULATION. Polycystic ovary syndrome is usually associated with bilateral enlarged ovaries studded with atretic follicles, not with cysts. The term, polycystic ovary, is misleading.
Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.
Sudden liver failure in the presence of underlying compensated chronic LIVER DISEASE (e.g., LIVER CIRRHOSIS; HEPATITIS; and liver injury and failure) due to a precipitating acute hepatic insult.
A genetic disorder with autosomal recessive inheritance, characterized by multiple CYSTS in both KIDNEYS and associated LIVER lesions. Serious manifestations are usually present at BIRTH with high PERINATAL MORTALITY.
A rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by the deposition of copper in the BRAIN; LIVER; CORNEA; and other organs. It is caused by defects in the ATP7B gene encoding copper-transporting ATPase 2 (EC 126.96.36.199), also known as the Wilson disease protein. The overload of copper inevitably leads to progressive liver and neurological dysfunction such as LIVER CIRRHOSIS; TREMOR; ATAXIA and intellectual deterioration. Hepatic dysfunction may precede neurologic dysfunction by several years.
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...
