Evaluating Blood Glucose Levels During Infusion With HepaGam B (HBIG) in Post-liver Transplant Patients

2014-08-27 03:18:33 | BioPortfolio

Summary

HepaGam B Hepatitis B Immune Globulin (HBIG) solution contains 10% maltose, which could possibly interfere with the measurement of glucose levels when using glucose non-specific tests. The purpose of this study is to determine whether use of HepaGam B HBIG shows an increase in glucose levels in the body using non-specific glucose monitoring, as well as specific glucose monitoring. The sponsor believes that this medication will not cause a significant increase in glucose levels in the body when measured by glucose non-specific tests.

Evaluation of HepaGam B® in Combination With Antiviral Treatment in Hepatitis B Liver Transplant Patients

The purpose of the study is to assess the pharmacokinetics, safety and efficacy of HepaGam B in combination with antiviral therapy for the prevention of hepatitis B virus (HBV) recurrence ...

An Evaluation of the FreeStyle Flash Glucose Monitoring System

The usability, skin reactions and accuracy of the FreeStyle Libre glucose monitoring system in children will be evaluated by questionnaires, pictures of the insertion site and comparison o...

Primary Care - Continuous Glucose Monitoring

Introduction and objective: The key to optimal diabetes management is tight glucose control. Hemoglobin A1c is the gold standard to assess glycemic control but in cases of unrecognized hyp...

Secondary Care - Continuous Glucose Monitoring

Introduction and objective: The current state of glucose monitoring includes the use of A1C, self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG), and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). CGM technolog...

Continuous Glucose Monitoring in Critically Ill Surgical Patients

The specific aim of this study is to identify the degree of correlation between real time subcutaneous glucose monitoring and intermittent glucose monitoring using capillary glucose sample...

Measurement Performance of Two Continuous Tissue Glucose Monitoring Systems Intended for Replacement of Blood Glucose Monitoring.

Currently, two systems for continuous tissue glucose monitoring (CGM) (Dexcom G5 [DG5] and FreeStyle Libre [FL]) are intended to replace blood glucose monitoring (BGM) and, according to manufacturer l...

Prediction Quality of Glucose Trend Indicators in Two Continuous Tissue Glucose Monitoring Systems.

Continuous interstitial glucose monitoring (CGM) systems often provide glucose trend indicators (e.g., arrows) in addition to current glucose values. These indicators are recommended to be used in the...

Increased body fat percentage in patients with hepatitis B and C virus infection.

Accumulated evidence has suggested associations between glucose abnormalities and insulin resistance with hepatitis C virus (HCV) and hepatitis B virus (HBV) infections. However, few studies have repo...

Near-Continuous Glucose Monitoring Makes Glycemic Control Safer in ICU Patients.

Tight glycemic control using intermittent blood glucose measurements is associated with a risk of hypoglycemia. Glucose concentrations can now be measured near continuously (every 5-15 min). We assess...

The Relationship Between a Balanced Time Perspective and Self-monitoring of Blood Glucose Among People With Type 1 Diabetes.

Self-monitoring of blood glucose helps people with type 1 diabetes to maintain glycemic control and reduce the risk of complications. However, adherence to blood glucose monitoring is often suboptimal...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans due to infection by VIRUSES. There are several significant types of human viral hepatitis with infection caused by enteric-transmission (HEPATITIS A; HEPATITIS E) or blood transfusion (HEPATITIS B; HEPATITIS C; and HEPATITIS D).

A family of hepatotropic DNA viruses which contains double-stranded DNA genomes and causes hepatitis in humans and animals. There are two genera: AVIHEPADNAVIRUS and ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS. Hepadnaviruses include HEPATITIS B VIRUS, duck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, DUCK), heron hepatitis B virus, ground squirrel hepatitis virus, and woodchuck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, WOODCHUCK).

Self evaluation of whole blood glucose levels outside the clinical laboratory. A digital or battery-operated reflectance meter may be used. It has wide application in controlling unstable insulin-dependent diabetes.

A species in the genus HEPATOVIRUS containing one serotype and two strains: HUMAN HEPATITIS A VIRUS and Simian hepatitis A virus causing hepatitis in humans (HEPATITIS A) and primates, respectively.

INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans caused by HEPATITIS DELTA VIRUS, a defective RNA virus that can only infect HEPATITIS B patients. For its viral coating, hepatitis delta virus requires the HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIGENS produced by these patients. Hepatitis D can occur either concomitantly with (coinfection) or subsequent to (superinfection) hepatitis B infection. Similar to hepatitis B, it is primarily transmitted by parenteral exposure, such as transfusion of contaminated blood or blood products, but can also be transmitted via sexual or intimate personal contact.
