Focus on human microbiome to fight liver cirrhosis

22 European institutions join forces in MICROB-PREDICT to improve the prevention and treatment of chronic liver disease (cirrhosis). We aim to identify microbiome-based biomarkers and mechanisms that predict in advance when the body can no longer compensate for the dysfunctional liver (decompensated cirrhosis), when such decompensated cirrhosis will progress to acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF), and a patient’s individual treatment response. Based on such biomarkers, we strive to develop novel diagnostic tools for earlier and better patient stratification and to establish personalised and effective treatment strategies.

First patient included in ALB-TRIAL

We are happy to report that the first patient was included in the ALB-TRIAL! The ALB-TRIAL is a trial investigating whether a biomarker can predict which patients will benefit from treatment with albumin. Patients will be admitted for participation in Hungary, Spain, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, The Netherlands and the UK. Find out more about the trial here.
