This phase III trial studies the side effects and how well risk-based therapy works in treating younger patients with newly diagnosed liver cancer. Surgery, chemotherapy drugs (cancer fighting medicines), and when necessary liver transplant are the main current treatments for hepatoblastoma. The stage of the cancer is one factor used to decide the best treatment. Treating patients according to the risk group they are in may help get rid of the cancer, keep it from coming back, and decrease the side effects of chemotherapy.
This research study is for liver transplant recipients and their respective living donors. The purpose of this study is to see if it is safe for liver recipients to receive one dose of donor reactive T regulatory cells (Tregs), and if the Tregs allows a liver recipient to take less, or completely stop medications normally taken after receiving an organ transplant.
Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz., Rochester, Minn.
A Phase 3b, single arm, open-label, multicenter study to evaluate the safety and to demonstrate the non-inferiority of the sustained virologic response 12 weeks post dosing (SVR12) rates of 8 weeks of treatment with the glecaprevir (GLE)/pibrentasvir (PIB) combination regimen to the historical SVR12 rate of 12 weeks of treatment with the GLE/PIB in treatment-naïve adults with chronic HCV GT 1, 2, 4, 5, or 6 infection and compensated cirrhosis.
The purpose of this study is to see if certain pre-transplant markers are able to predict how the kidney will respond after a liver transplant.
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of GKT13783 in patients with Primary Biliary Cholangitis (PBC) who are taking a stable dose of ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) treatment, and have persistently high levels of a liver enzyme called Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP).
Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz., Rochester, Minn.
The purpose of this study is to confirm the effectiveness and safety of terlipressin in the treatment of adult patients with hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) type 1.
This is a multicenter, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of emricasan in improving event-free survival based on a composite clinical endpoint (where all-cause mortality, new decompensation events, and MELD score progression are events) in subjects with decompensated NASH cirrhosis.
Phase 2a, dose-ranging Study with PF-05221304 in Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)
Liver biopsy is routinely performed at day 7 after liver transplant at Mayo to evaluate acute liver rejection.The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility of a non-invasive evaluation of acute liver rejection by using ultrasound measurements.
The primary objectives of this study are to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of obeticholic acid treatment compared to placebo on both tissue structure improvement and liver-related clinical outcomes in patients with non-cirrhotic nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) with liver fibrosis.
