A Trial Of Anakinra (Plus Zinc), G-Csf, Or Prednisone In Patients With Severe Alcoholic Hepatitis

Description

Seeking adult males and females who have recently been diagnosed with severe alcoholic hepatitis (AH) for a study to determine how well two drugs work in treating AH compared to the current standard treatment.

Overview

We are collecting blood, urine, stool, and saliva from people with severe alcoholic hepatitis (AH) for a study to determine how well two investigational medications work in treating AH compared to the current standard treatment. Participants will have testing and exams performed in clinic, as well as answer questionnaires.

What we're hoping for

We hope to determine whether the investigational medications Anakinra (plus zinc) and granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) are safe and effective compared to the current treatment plan for patients with severe Alcoholic Hepatitis (AH).
