Clinical Trial Summary

Prospective randomized, multi-center, double blind placebo-controlled trial to assess the chemopreventive impact of atorvastatin (20 mg oral) vs placebo in up to 60 adults with advanced fibrosis at high risk of developing HCC.


Clinical Trial Description

The study objective is to investigate the chemopreventive efficacy of atorvastatin (20 mg) on HCC risk compared to placebo in adults with advanced fibrosis (i.e. METAVIR fibrosis stage 3-4) and high-risk PLS (defined by pre-randomization liver biopsy). HCC risk will be measured by changes in prognostic liver signature (PLS) risk score after oral administration of atorvastatin for 1 year with up to 5 years post-treatment of chart monitoring. ;
