Balancing antibiotic treatment with infusions of immune system supporting albumin

Clinical Trial

About the clinical trial
The aim of the Alb-trial within the MICROB-PREDICT project is to validate a biological marker to predict how well the body responds to treatment with albumin in patients with cirrhosis. The biological marker has been developed within the MICROB-PREDICT project and will be tested in a European randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial with patients enrolled from twelve European centers.

In this trial, the effect of long-term administration of human albumin will be investigated in a cohort of decompensated cirrhotic patients stratified by their expected treatment response to human albumin. The aim is to identify patients who are likely to clinically benefit from the long-term treatment with human albumin, resulting in reduced or improved symptoms and lower risk of death. The results of this trial are expected to be a major step forward towards personalized treatment for these patients.

Study sites
The study is performed in out-patient clinics at twelve clinical study sites across seven European countries and has started on 27/02/2024.
