This study will involved 30 healthy individuals. Subjects cannot be currently taking any medications. A total of 4 blood tubes will be obtained after at least 4 hours of fasting state from these subjects and the venous ammonia results obtained from these subjects will be used to establish the normal range of ammonia for an upcoming phase 1b/2a study by the same sponsors.
This study will consist of only 1 clinic visit which will last around 30 - 45 minutes long. Bloods will be withdrawn as the South Carolina Translational Reseasrch (SCTR) outpatient clinics and the bloods will be analyzed at the Medical University of South Carolina laboratory.
The purpose of this study is to see if Rifaximin Soluble Solid Dispersion (SSD) Tablets are safe, well-tolerated, and whether they can better treat overt hepatic encephalopathy, a complication associated with liver cirrhosis, when compared to a placebo (an inactive substance).
This is a Phase 2, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study
evaluating the safety and efficacy of SEL, GS-0976, GS-9674, and
combinations in subjects with bridging fibrosis or compensated
cirrhosis due to NASH.
Subjects meeting the study's entry criteria will be randomly assigned in
a 2:2:1:1:1:1:2 ratio to 1 of 7 treatment groups, with approximately
70 subjects in each combination treatment group and approximately 35
subjects in each single agent or placebo group.
The purpose of this study is to confirm the efficacy and safety of terlipressin in the treatment of adult subjects admitted to the hospital with hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) Type 1. Hepatorenal syndrome Type 1 is a severe, but potentially reversible, form of renal failure that afflicts patients with severe chronic liver disease associated with cirrhosis. This will be a randomized, placebo-controlled, and double-blinded multi-center study. Patients will be randomly be placed in either a terlipressin-treatment group or a placebo group. Neither you nor the study team will know which group you have been placed in. The study drug will be given as an IV injection every 6 hours while the patient is an inpatient at the hospital every 6 hours. This is a phase 3 study, with prior studies already showing promising results.
This is a treatment study for participants with Decompensated Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) Cirrhosis to access whether the study drug emricasan compared to placebo improves event-free survival in subjects. Event free refers to subjects not experiencing any new compensation events and MELD score progression. The study treatment duration will be 48 weeks (1 year) with study visits every 4 weeks. Study drug will be provided at no cost to and participants will be compensated for their time and travel.
This study is involves an investigational drug called emricasan. The purpose of the study is to find out if the drug is safe and effective in treating portal hypertension in patients with NASH cirrhosis and portal hypertension. The study will last about 32 weeks and and involve 9 visits to the study doctor. Participants will receive all study-related treatment and care at no cost and will be compensated up to $500 for completing the study.
This is a treatment study for people who have Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) fibrosis but not cirrhosis. The purpose of the study is to see whether the oral investigational medication, Elafibranor, is effective and safe in treating liver fibrosis.
This study is to find the best time that a follow up appointment can be scheduled to benefit the patient with liver cirrohis to return after having the bleeding vessels in the esophagus repaired by directing a scope in the esophagus and using bands to stop the bleeding.
The study will compare two durations of treatment with Octreotide in patients with confirmed esophageal variceal hemorrhage who have undergone successful endoscopy and possible endoscopic therapy for control of bleeding. All procedures including the treatment are the standard of care. Octreotide infusion and endoscopic therapy for esophageal variceal bleeding are not investigational.
