Liver Cirrhosis: Understanding

Liver Cirrhosis: Overview

Liver cirrhosis is a condition in which the liver is scarred and permanently damaged, and scar tissue replaces healthy liver tissue, preventing the liver from working normally. Cirrhosis is usually caused by long-term liver damage from conditions such as alcohol-associated liver disease, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, chronic hepatitis C, and chronic hepatitis B. Symptoms of cirrhosis may not appear until the liver is badly damaged and can include fatigue, severe itchy skin, and swelling in the legs and abdomen. Doctors diagnose cirrhosis based on medical history, a physical exam, and the results of tests such as blood tests, imaging tests, and liver biopsy. There is no specific cure for cirrhosis, but treating the underlying causes of cirrhosis may keep it from getting worse and may help prevent liver failure. Complications of cirrhosis can include portal hypertension, infections, and liver cancer. Eating a healthy diet and avoiding foods and drinks that can damage the liver, such as raw shellfish and alcohol, can help manage cirrhosis. In some cases, liver transplant may be an option.

Liver cirrhosis symptoms can vary depending on the severity of the condition. Early symptoms may include fatigue, poor appetite, weight loss, nausea, belly pain, and small red spider-like blood vessels on the skin. As liver function worsens, symptoms may include fluid buildup in the legs and abdomen, yellow color in the skin, mucous membranes, or eyes (jaundice), redness on the palms of the hands, impotence and breast swelling in men, easy bruising and abnormal bleeding, confusion or problems thinking, pale or clay-colored stools, and bleeding from the upper or lower gastrointestinal tract.

Liver cirrhosis diagnosis involves a combination of blood tests, imaging tests, and, in some cases, a liver biopsy. Blood tests can reveal elevated liver enzymes, abnormal liver function, and signs of infection or inflammation. Imaging tests such as ultrasound, CT, or MRI can help visualize the liver and detect any abnormalities. A liver biopsy may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis and assess the severity of the damage.

Treatment for liver cirrhosis focuses on slowing the progression of scar tissue, managing symptoms, and preventing complications. Lifestyle changes may include diet modifications, discontinuing alcohol use, weight loss for those with obesity, regular exercise, and good hygiene to reduce infection risk. Medications may include antiviral medications for viral hepatitis, diuretics to reduce fluid buildup, beta-blockers to prevent bleeding from enlarged veins, and prescription creams for itching.

Liver Cirrhosis Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Liver Cirrhosis report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Liver Cirrhosis Emerging Drugs
  • Elafibranor: Ipsen
Elafibranor (GFT-505) is under development for the treatment of colitis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), and primary sclerosing cholangitis. The drug candidate is administered orally as a coated tablet. It acts by targeting peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) alpha and PPAR-beta / PPAR- delta. The drug candidate was under development for dyslipidemia, abdominal obesity, type 2 diabetes, Crohn’s disease, insulin resistance and glucose intolerance, colitis and NAFLD/NASH-induced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In December 2023, Ipsen and GENFIT announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had accepted the New Drug Application (NDA) for investigational elafibranor.
  • Volixibat: Mirum Pharmaceuticals
Volixibat is a minimally absorbed, orally administered investigational therapy designed to selectively inhibit ileal bile acid transporter (IBAT), a protein that is primarily responsible for recycling bile acids from the intestine to the liver. The company believes that volixibat may offer a novel approach in the treatment of rare liver diseases impacting both adults and children by blocking the recycling of bile acids, thereby reducing bile acids systemically. Volixibat is currently being studied in intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy, primary sclerosing cholangitis, and primary biliary cholangitis. Currently, the drug is in Phase II stage of its clinical trial.
  • PVT201: Parvus Therapeutics
Parvus Therapeutics, a biopharmaceutical company developing PVT201 drug for the treatment of Primary Biliary Cholangitis. Currently, the drug is in preclinical stage of its development.
