Dr. Odin's liver research focuses on Autoimmune Liver Disease, Toxicity, Fatty Liver Disease, and Viral Hepatitis. Clinical trials and studies are being conducted or planned for primary biliary cirrhosis, primary sclerosing cholangitis, autoimmune hepatitis, drug or toxin induced liver injury, hepatitis B and C, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Some of the research is investigator initiated while other studies are supported by the National Institutes of Health or Pharmaceutical Companies.
- Genomics of Primary Biliary Cirrhosis
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether genes (the inherited genetic material passed from parents to their children) make people more likely to develop Primary Bilary Cirrhosis (PBC).
Discovery of these proposed genes will help us to better understand how...
- A Phase 2b, Dose-Ranging, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial Evaluating the Safety and Efficacy of GS-6624, a Monoclonal Antibody Against Lysyl Oxidase Like 2 (LOXL2) in Subjects with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC)
This is a Phase 2b dose ranging randomized double blind placebo controlled trial designed to assess the efficacy and safety of simtuzumab in subjects with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC). The study drug named simtuzumab (also known as GS6624) is considered investigational...
- A randomized double-blind controlled evaluation of tenofovir DF versus adefovir dipivoxil for the treatment of presumed pre-core mutant chronic hepatitis B
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and the effectiveness of tenofovir DF (TDF) to that of adefovir dipivoxil (ADV) in patients chronically infected with hepatitis B (HBV). TDF is approved for the treatment of HIV infection in the United States, Australia, and E...
- A Phase 2, Randomized, Double Blind, Placebo Controlled, Parallel Group, Multiple Center Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of NGM282 Administered for 12 Weeks in Patients with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC)
The purpose of this study is to determine if an investigational drug, NGM282, is safe and effective in the treatment of Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC), compared with the standard treatment. PSC is a long term liver disease that slowly damages the bile ducts, or tubes.
