  • Safety and Efficacy of IMM 124-E for Patients with Severe Alcoholic Hepatitis Rochester, MN

    Hypothesis: Oral administration of hyperimmune bovine colostrum enriched with anti-LPS antibodies will reduce endotoxemia, and improve pathophysiological and clinical parameters related to severe alcoholic hepatitis (SAH).

    Aim: To perform a phase 2a "proof of concept" placebo-controlled, dose-ranging study of Imm 124-E (hyperimmune bovine colostrum enriched with IgG anti-LPS) in subjects with severe AH on steroids.

  • Trial of Obeticholic Acid in Patients with Moderately Severe Alcoholic Hepatitis (AH) Rochester, MN

    The main purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of Obeticholic Acid when used in patients with moderately severe alcoholic hepatitis. The researchers suspect that individuals with alcoholic hepatitis have certain abnormalities in how their body handles bile acids (a product made by the liver on a daily basis) produced by the liver. Obeticholic acid has been shown to affect bile acid abnormalities and thus it is possible that obeticholic acid may improve liver condition in individuals with alcoholic hepatitis.

  • Alcoholic Hepatitis: A Multicenter, Observational Study by the TREAT Consortium La Crosse, WI; Albert Lea, MN; Rochester, MN

    To conduct a prospective, multicenter, observational study of patients with well-characterized alcoholic hepatitis (AH) and frequency matched individuals (by age, gender, and race) with comparable history of alcohol consumption but no clinical evidence of liver disease (controls). At the end of the study, a robust clinical information, central bio-repository will be developed from both cases and controls.

  • Study of IDN-6556 in Patients With Severe AH and Contradictions to Steroid Therapy Rochester, MN

    The main purpose of the study is to test if taking a study drug called emricasan (also known as IDN-6556 and PF-03491390) will affect overall patient survival after one month of treatment.

  • Dissecting the Genetic Environment Contributions of Autoimmune Liver Disease Rochester, MN

    The overall objective of this proposal is to conduct a systematic approach to dissect both genetic underpinnings and non-genetic factors in the development of adult autoimmune liver diseases including autoimmune hepatitis (AIH), overlap AIH with Primary Biliary Cirrhosis (AIH-PBC), overlap AIH with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (AIH-PSC), and drug-induced autoimmune-like hepatitis (DIAIH).
