Immune dysregulations, including cytokines and chemokines secretions occurs in alcoholic liver disease. Serum levels and liver expression of CCL2 are increased in patients with alcoholic hepatitis but the role of this chemokine in the pathogenesis of alcoholic liver disease is nevertheless unknown. The aim of the study is to analyze plasma level and liver expression of CCL2 and their relation with liver disease severity and inflammatory infiltrate in our cohort of alcoholic pat...
Background: - Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is the most common form of liver disease in the United States. It includes many conditions. Researchers want to study fatty liver disease by looking at people who have liver cirrhosis. They also want to look at people who are or were listed for liver transplants. Genetic studies may provide more information on the causes of these conditions. Objectives: - To study possible genetic causes of non-alcoholic fatty liver...
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is the most common cause of chronic liver disease worldwide. It is defined as the accumulation of fat (>5%) in the liver cells in the absence of excessive alcohol intake or other causes of liver disease including viral, drug-induced, or autoimmune. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is a hepatic manifestation of metabolic syndrome.
Alcoholic liver disease represents the major health issues and it ranges from simple steatosis to cirrhosis. There is a paucity of data to support the allopathic intervention among these group of patients. Livitol-17 consist of the 3 whole herbs and extract which has antioxidant, hepatoprotective as well as reno-protective properties. The aim of this trial is to study the efficacy of herbal supplement to improve the liver function of alcoholic liver disease subject.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is the most common chronic liver disease in Hong Kong. Its presence among donors of living donor liver transplants could affect the outcomes of recipients of liver transplantation. By using controlled attenuation parameter (CAP) measurements, the investigators aim to investigate the association of CAP measurements and severity of fatty liver among liver donors in the recipient outcomes of living donor liver transplantation.
This prospective, analytic observational study will investigate alcohol recidivism in patients with alcoholic liver disease. All adult subjects presenting with alcoholic liver disease are considered for inclusion. Subjects able to give consent are included.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is the most common cause of chronic liver disease in the western world, affecting one in every three subjects. The investigators hypothesize that a patient population without known liver disease has a certain percentage of patients with liver fibrosis who are undiagnosed and not monitored.
The purpose of this study is is to use non-invasive diagnostic tests, Fibroscan and a simple blood test, to diagnose NASH in patients who undergo liver transplantation. Liver transplantation is a life-saving procedure for people with cirrhosis. Fatty liver is a common reason for liver transplantation due to obesity and diabetes. Fatty liver can happen again to the new transplanted liver and it is often due to metabolic risk factors (including diabetes, rapid weight gain, and im...
It is an observational study of non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) patients with a calculated sample size of 90. Liver biopsy proved NAFLD patients will be recruited in this study for 2 years follow-up. Patients will be assessed at baseline, at every six months for blood count, liver function test, fasting blood-glucose, fasting insulin, ferritin, liver ultrasonography, and liver stiffness.
The principal purpose of this study is to determine whether increased intakes of n-3 polyunsaturated (omega-3) fatty acids will reduce the amount of fat stored in the liver in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
To assess the importance of intracellular signalling pathways and its deregulation in adiposity and diabetes-related insulin resistance, liver tissue samples of patients suffering from non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH)will be analyzed prospectively from a liver tissue bank.
This multi-center, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study will evaluate the change in liver fat content, pharmacokinetics and safety of RO5093151 in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Patients will be randomized to receive either daily oral doses of RO5093151 or matching placebo. The anticipated time on study treatment is 12 weeks.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate how the liver receives and uses fats for energy. This will help the investigators further understand the physical and chemical processes responsible for Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) in overweight females with or without NAFLD who are scheduled to undergo gastric bypass surgery.
Investigator seek to determine whether the volume of the liver can predict the survival after a decompensation of a patient suffering from chronic liver disease caused by excessive alcohol consumption (or alcoholic cirrhosis). Our hypothesis is that patients with a "small" liver have a lower survival compared to patients having a "normal" sized liver.
The purpose of this present study is to evaluating whether prebiotics - ITF (Inulin/OFS 75/25) is effective in treating patients with non-alcoholic liver disease.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) are common complications of type 2 diabetes and leading causes of liver disease in the US and Europe. The prevalence of NAFLD and NASH are expected to become a major cause of liver disease related deaths and liver transplantation. Currently, there are no specific therapies that alter the natural history of NAFLD.Preliminary evidence suggests that exenatide (Byetta®) may have several beneficial d...
This is a research study of a text-messaging intervention to reduce alcohol relapse risk in pre-transplant liver transplantation patients. This study is an 8-week, randomized controlled pilot trial to investigate the feasibility and acceptability of a text-messaging intervention for alcohol relapse prevention and stress reduction in 20 liver transplant patients with alcohol-related liver disease. The goals of the study are (1) to develop a mobile, SMS-based stress reduction and...
The hypothesis of this study was that ginger supplement consumption can be introduced as a new therapeutic strategy for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease through the improved body antioxidant activity, reduced levels of inflammation and insulin resistance. A randomized double-blind study was designed to evaluate this hypothesis in order to examine the effectiveness of ginger supplement in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
HIV infected people are at increased risk for liver disease and failure, leading to the need for a liver transplant. Many HIV infected people are refused a transplant because it has been hypothesized that the antirejection drugs given to transplant patients would worsen HIV disease. Recent studies have shown that these drugs may actually slow HIV progression. The purpose of this study is to determine how liver transplant and antirejection drugs affect HIV progression and how...
Assess the renal changes in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFLD).
There is an epidemic of alcohol use disorder in the US. Alcoholism is an epidemic that spans all ages and socio-economic strata, which has a major impact on healthcare expenditure. Alcohol-associated liver disease can take the form of mild fatty liver, chronic liver disease including cirrhosis and a very acute active form known as alcoholic hepatitis. However, most patients with alcohol abuse issues with cirrhosis do not develop alcoholic hepatitis and are not willing to quit d...
The main objective is to compare the accuracy of transient elastography taking into account liver steatosis determined by MRI, to liver biopsy for the diagnosis of liver fibrosis ≥F2 in patient with NAFLD.
Prospective screening study at Odense University Hospital to assess the effect of transient elastography and other serum and imaging markers of liver fibrosis to detect advanced fibrosis (Kleiner Fibrosis score F3-F4) in patients at risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, alcoholic fatty liver disease, with a control group of participants recruited from the general population.
Lovaza is the only fish oil supplement approved by the FDA. It is available by prescription for the treatment of hypertriglyceridemia (> 500 mg/dl). The primary mechanism appears to be a reduction in hepatic production of triglycerides. Also decreases the hepatic production of very low density lipoprotein (VLDL). There also may be antioxidant properties as well. The thought behind using Lovaza as a treatment for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is two fold. It would he...
