In a retrospective study, 200 patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, fatty liver hepatitis, and fatty liver fibrosis have been identified for pathological diagnosis of liver histology and exclusion of other liver diseases. Before the liver biopsy were performed, these patients should detect liver function, coagulation function, renal function, blood glucose, blood lipids, liver elasticity measurement and imaging indicators and results, and demographic data. To evaluate the diagnostic ability of the current non-invasive diagnostic model of NAFLD fibrosis and the adaptability of model indicators to the diagnosis of enrolled patients, and to correct the indicators, including discarding unsuitable indicators and incorporating new indicators, and adjusting the diagnostic score. Establish a non-invasive diagnostic model for liver fibrosis in Beijing based on NAFLD. In a prospective observational study, 100 patients without other liver diseases and ultrasound-tested fatty liver were enrolled, and histopathological diagnosis of liver were included in the study, and liver function, coagulation function, renal function, blood glucose, and non-invasive model analysis were detected. Blood lipids, liver elasticity measurements, and imaging indicators were examined and demographic data were collected. The non-invasive diagnostic model established by retrospective study was used to diagnose fibrosis and its staging, compared with histopathological diagnosis, and adjusted the index of non-invasive diagnostic model to further revise and improve the diagnostic efficacy of the diagnostic model. Long-term follow-up observations were performed in the prospective observation cohort. The liver function, coagulation function, renal function, blood glucose, blood lipids, liver elasticity and imaging examination were performed during the observation period, and the treatment events and the progress of the patients were recorded. To explore the correlation and predictive ability of noninvasive diagnostic models for long-term outcomes of disease. Finally, a model for predicting the outcome of progression of liver fibrosis in NAFLD was established.
This study evaluates the effect of erythropoietin on the number and function of regulatory T cells in adults with autoimmune hepatitis. Participants will receive a single dose of erythropoietin, and then we will collect blood at different time points for analysis of regulatory T cell number and function.
This study will look at physical activity and nutrition in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) or non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). The researchers will see if providing patients with NAFLD/NASH with specific physical activity and nutrition feedback as an addition to their usual clinical care helps them to lose weight and improve liver-related parameters.
With the present study the investigators will evaluate the benefit of end-ischemic HOPE on ECD grafts (livers and kidneys) as compared to SCS. Organs will be perfused through a recently developed machine perfusion (MP) device, from the beginning of back-table procedures till implantation, without increasing CIT. The aim of the study will be demonstrating the ability of HOPE to improve graft function and post-operative outcomes of ECD kidney and liver recipients.
This study will be conducted upon the patients with fatty liver disease. Patients who will be diagnosed as a case of fatty liver disease by ultrasound with raised liver enzyme (ALT) will be primarily selected for the study. A total number of 150 patients will be randomly selected for the study that will also be divided into two groups for the study purpose. The patients will be informed about the details of the study. After getting the detail information those who will give informed written consent will be finally included in the study. One group of patients will be treated by both life style modification and Obeticholic acid. Another group of patients by only life style modification. After 3 months of treatment the two groups will be compared of improvement of fatty liver disease and liver enzyme by improvement of fibroscan with CAP value as well as improvement of ALT value.
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is mainly considered a nutrition-related disease and life-style/diet interventions showed some promising results. But in spite of this, there are no available markers to efficiently guide interventions. the hypothesize put farth by the investigators is that NAFLD patients develop postprandial abnormalities of plasma lipids upon "western diet" challenge, more severe in steatohepatitis (NASH) than in pure steatosis (NAFL), promoting liver injury. Our study aims to evaluate the presence of toxic lipids (such as free-fatty acids, ceramides, diacylglycerols, sphingolipids) in postprandial state after ingestion of a "western diet" in NAFLD patients. Consecutive patients (group 1: NAFL patients; group 2: NASH patients) with biopsy-proven NAFLD (liver biopsy < 6 months) will be recruited during a period of 12 month. Blood samples will be drawn at fasting, 2hours, 4hours, 6hours and 8hours after ingestion of a "western diet" meal. Plasma lipid profiles using lipidomics, circulating markers of liver injury and inflammation will be analyzed. the investigators will also assess the hepatotoxicity of plasma from NAFL or NASH patients in-vitro.
Liver Diseases in pregnancy represents rare disorders and current data is derived primarily from single centres and retrospective cohorts. Moreover, the population prevalence of these diseases is low and to-date, it has proven difficult to generate reliable data at a patient level. This is a multi-center, prospective cohort study that will open at 3 centers within the UK; and 4 centers in the European Union. The investigators will aim to collect data and blood samples at various time points, for patients presenting with liver disease during pregnancy. The main rationale behind this study is to establish a platform that enables detailed review of the outcomes of these rare diseases; to help classify and stratify patients according to risk and develop interventional studies and care pathways to improve overall outcome.
Several drugs and chemotherapies seem to have an impact on the hepatological system. This study investigates reports of hepatological toxicities, including the International classification of disease ICD-10 for treatments in the World Health Organization (WHO) global Individual Case Safety Report (ICSR) database (VigiBase).
This study was conducted to evaluate narlaprevir (NVR) pharmacokinetics (PK) after a single dose with or without ritonavir (RTV) in cirrhotic Child-Pugh class A patients without active HCV infection versus healthy subjects as well as to assess safety and tolerability of such treatment combination.
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common cause of chronic liver disease in developed countries affecting approximately 30 % of the general adult population. It represents an important pathogenic factor in the development of type 2-diabetes and is associated with a high risk of cardiovascular disease. Previous studies of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have demonstrated an increased risk for NAFLD and the presence of both CKD and NAFLD is likely to increase the risk for cardiovascular disease. The present protocol describes a study of the prevalence and etiology of NAFLD among patients with type 2-diabetes with CKD. The study is a cross-sectional study. Fat accumulation in the liver will be determined by Magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy and the prevalence of NAFLD among patients with type 2-diabetes with normal kidney function or CKD stage 3-5 will be investigated. A continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for four days, Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) scanning, fibro scanning of the liver, bile acid analysis, metabolomic and lipidomic analysis will also be performed.
