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 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.
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.
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.
This phase 2, double blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study is to access the safety and efficacy of CORT118335 in Patients with Probable Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH).
Although the clinical relationship between NAFLD/NASH and cardiovascular (CV) risk is now well established, there is very little awareness of the hepatic disease and the way it may contribute to increased CV risk in patients seen in cardiology clinics for complications of coronary artery disease. Our clinical hypothesis is that NAFLD, possibly at a stage of advanced fibrosis, is common in patients with symptomatic coronary artery disease (CAD) and increases the risk of severe atherosclerotic lesions. The primary aim of this study is to determine (a) the prevalence and (b) the severity spectrum of NAFLD among patients with symptomatic coronary artery disease. The secondary aims are: to analyze the impact of the presence and the severity spectrum of NAFLD (steatosis, steatohepatitis and fibrosis) on the severity of CAD ; To determine the profile of NAFLD patients at risk to develop coronary lesions; To explore the mechanistic link between NAFLD and CAD beyond common metabolic risk factors.
The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of EYP001a with respect to safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and on markers of liver inflammation in patients with NASH
In the recent years, research on brown adipose tissue (BAT) revealed that larger amounts as well as higher activity thereof are associated with a favourable metabolic phenotype. Longitudinal studies which applied recurrent cooling sessions demonstrated a high plasticity of BAT which significantly increased in size and activity during these studies. These changes were accompanied by improvements in body fat mass as well as insulin sensitivity. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is estimated to advance to the primary cause of liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma in the following years. Besides predisposing genetic and possibly nutritional factors, the insulin resistance syndrome and obesity are the main factors contributing to this excessive hepatic lipid accumulation. The aim of this study is to investigate whether BAT recruitment via cold-acclimation results in decreased hepatic lipid content in overweight/obese patients with NAFLD.
This is a Phase 1, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, first-in-human study in which the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of orally administered GB1211 will be evaluated in healthy adult subjects and adult subjects with indication of suspected Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and liver fibrosis.
