Cirrhosis clinical trials at UC Cancer
3 research studies open to new patients

  • Best dose of navitoclax with sorafenib tosylate to treat patients with tumors that have returned/not responded to treatment

    β€œCan Navitoclax and sorafenib tosylate stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth?”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and the best dose of navitoclax when given together with sorafenib tosylate in treating patients with solid tumors that have returned (relapsed) or do not respond to treatment (refractory). Navitoclax and sorafenib tosylate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound Imaging in Diagnosing Liver Cancer in Patients With Cirrhosis

    open to eligible people ages 21 years and up

    This clinical trial studies how well contrast-enhanced ultrasound imaging works in diagnosing liver cancer in patients with cirrhosis. Diagnostic procedures, such as contrast-enhanced ultrasound imaging, may help find and diagnose liver cancer.

  • Mild Hypothermia and Acute Kidney Injury in Liver Transplantation

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Acute kidney injury (AKI), or worsening kidney function, is a common complication after liver transplantation (20-90% in published studies). Patients who experience AKI after liver transplantation have higher mortality, increased graft loss, longer hospital and intensive care unit stays, and more progression to chronic kidney disease compared with those who do not. In this study, half of the participants will have their body temperature cooled to slightly lower than normal (mild hypothermia) for a portion of the liver transplant operation, while the other half will have their body temperature maintained at normal. The study will evaluate if mild hypothermia protects from AKI during liver transplantation.
