Clinical Trial Summary

Endothelin is a human hormone which has been associated with increased portal pressure in patients with liver cirrhosis (also called portal hypertension). Ambrisentan blocks the effects of endothelin. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of ambrisentan on portal pressure and renal function in patients with advanced liver cirrhosis and with portal hypertension. In this study, portal pressure will be determined at multiple times with the aid of a catheter inserted into the body of the patient. The effect of ambrisentan on the function of the kidney will also be investigated. This study will also evaluate the concentrations of ambrisentan in blood in patients with liver cirrhosis.
