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. Please go to Programs in Autoimmune Liver Diseases.
- An 8-week, dose ranging, open label, randomized, Phase 2 study with an 18-week extension, to evaluate the safety and efficacy of MBX-8025 in subjects with Primary Biliary Cholangitis (PBC) and an inadequate response to or intolerance to ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA)
The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness and safety of MBX-8025 on Primary Biliary Cirrhosis (PBC) when available treatment with UDCA has proved inadequate or not tolerated. This will be assessed by looking at how the drug affects Primary Biliary Cirrhos...
- A Phase 2, Pilot Study of JKB-122 to Assess Liver Tests (ALT) in Autoimmune Hepatitis Patients Who Are Refractory or Intolerant to Current Therapies
The purpose of this study is to test the safety and effectiveness of JKB-122 (the study drug) for treatment of Autoimmune Hepatitis (AIH). JKB-122 is a compound that blocks the formation of chemicals in the body that produce inflammation that can lead to liver disease....
- A Phase 2, Prospective, Multicenter, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Study to Evaluate Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of Saroglitazar Magnesium in Patients with Primary Biliary Cholangitis (EPICS )
This is a Phase 2 prospective, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study planned to enroll a total of 36 patients from 10-12 sites with a diagnosis of Primary Biliary Cholangitis (PBC) who meet the study's inclusion/exclusion criteria.
