Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz., Jacksonville, Fla., Rochester, Minn.
The purpose of this study is to validate the use of a RNAseq-based peripheral blood assay in liver transplant recipients when correlated to liver biopsy results.
The purpose of this study is to characterize the readily available (circulating in peripheral blood) mediators of cell proliferation in individuals undergoing living liver donation.
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.
The aim of this study is to measure the differences in quality of life and mood of liver transplant recipients in the immediate month post- transplant staying at the Gabriel House of Care staying at a hotel, apartment or rental property.
Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz., Jacksonville, Fla.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate whether obeticholic acid (OCA; INT-747) can lead to histological improvement in fibrosis with no worsening of NASH in adults with compensated cirrhosis due to NASH.
Rochester, Minn., Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz.
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.
The purpose of this study is to understanding the mechanisms of weight gain in patients following liver transplantation, action, and indicate approaches to prevent weight gain.
Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz., Jacksonville, Fla.
The purpose of this multicenter, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study is 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.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of BMS-986036 in adults with nonalcoholic steatophepatitis (NASH) and compensated liver fibrosis.
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.
