A Phase 2, Multicenter, Open-Label Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Sofosbuvir/Velpatasvir Fixed-Dose Combination and Ribavirin for 12 Weeks in Subjects with Chronic HCV Infection and Child-Pugh-Turcotte Class C Cirrhosis
The purpose of this study is to see if the drug combination of Sofosbuvir/Velpatasvir and Ribavirin (SOF/VEL+RBV) given for 12 weeks is effective in treating people infected with the hepatitis C virus who have advanced liver disease with permanent liver damage (cirrhosis) and may...
A Phase 3, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study Evaluating the Safety and Efficacy of Selonsertib in Subjects with Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) and Bridging (F3) Fibrosis
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether selonsertib (SEL, previously known as GS-4997) can cause fibrosis regression and reduce progression to cirrhosis and associated complications in subjects with NASH and bridging (F3) fibrosis and to assess the safety and tolerabilit...
Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Phase 3 Study of Ramucirumab and Best Supportive Care (BSC) Versus Placebo and BSC as Second-Line Treatment in Patients With Hepatocellular Carcinoma and Elevated Baseline Alpha-Fetoprotein (AFP) Following First-Line Therapy With Sorafenib
The purpose of this study is to find out whether ramucirumab can help patients with liver cancer. Ramucirumab is an experimental drug because it is still being tested and not yet approved to treat liver cancer. However, the FDA has allowed the use of this drug for res...
A Phase IIb, double blind randomized, controlled clinical trial, to evaluate the efficacy and safety of two Aramchol doses versus placebo in patients with Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)
The purpose of this study is to test a new investigational drug called Aramchol. The study will be a multinational, multicenter trial to compare the efficacy, tolerability and safety of Aramchol tablets 400 mg and 600 mg to placebo tablets, in 240 NASH subjects who also suffer fr...
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of Elafibranor compared to placebo in the treatment of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). A placebo looks the same as the study treatment (same shape, same look), except that it contains no active subs...
A Phase 3, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study Evaluating the Safety and Efficacy of Selonsertib in Subjects with Compensated Cirrhosis due to Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether selonsertib (SEL, previously known as GS-4997) can cause fibrosis regression and reduce associated complications in subjects with cirrhosis due to NASH and to assess the safety and tolerability of SEL in subjects with Nonalcoholic ...

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
