Role of Tissue C4d in Differentiation Between Acut e Rejection and HCV Recurrence After Liver Transplantation
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Sponsor||Ain Shams University|
|Start date||December 2012|
|End date||June 2014|
|Trial size||24 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02209675, tissue C4d|
Assessment of the role of tissue C4d complement fragments in liver biopsy as a new marker for differentiating between acute rejection and Hepatitis C (HCV) recurrence in recipients post living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) .As each condition require different treatment
|Endpoint classification||efficacy study|
|Intervention model||single group assignment|
Patients with elevated liver enzymes and/or hyperbilirubinemia post transplantation for hepatitis C virus related disease will have liver biopsy
Number of participants who developed Acute cellular rejection after transplantation
time frame: 2 years
Male or female participants from 18 years up to 65 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - Patients transplanted for HCV related disease that are presented with elevated liver enzyme and/or hyperbilirubinemia and normal Abdominal Doppler ultrasound and Magnetic resonance cholangiography (MRCP). Exclusion Criteria: - Evidence of other causes of elevated liver enzyme and/or hyperbilirubinemia as abnormal Abdominal Doppler ultrasound and/or Magnetic resonance cholangiography MRCP findings.
