Vector Analysis of Body Composition in Hospitalized Cirrhotic Patients
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Sponsor||Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Medicas y Nutricion Salvador Zubiran|
|Start date||November 2012|
|End date||April 2016|
|Trial size||79 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02017301, GAS-800-12-13-1|
Patients with acute decompensation of cirrhosis, or acute on chronic liver failure often present with malnutrition, and due to the in-hospital stay, their nutritional intake can vary widely, with several periods of fasting, and sometimes insufficient nutritional support. Therefore patients are prone to develop malnutrition or, the already present malnutrition worsens its status.
Our aim is to evaluate the daily changes in nutritional status in patients with acute decompensation of cirrhosis and evaluate the changes in plasma and serum biomarkers.
Changes in nutritional status
time frame: Daily measurement up to 30 days
Evaluation of inflammatory cytokines
time frame: Samples will be collected at the baseline evaluation.
Male or female participants from 18 years up to 75 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - Age 18-75 years old - Patients with confirmed cirrhosis. - Any etiology - Hospitalized with acute decompensation of cirrhosis - Signed informed consent Exclusion Criteria: - Pregnancy - Amputation - Incomplete data
|Official title||Influence of Acute Decompensation on Body Composition Determined by Bioelectrical Impedance Vector Analysis|
|Principal investigator||Aldo Torre Delgadillo, M.D. M.Sc|
