Impact of Branched-Chain Amino Acid-Enriched Nutrient on liver Cirrhosis with Hepatocellular Carcinoma Undergoing Transcatheter Arterial Chemoembolization in Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer Stage B: A Prospective Study
Journal of Nippon Medical School
In decompensated liver cirrhosis, hypoalbuminemia still persists even after they have been treated with branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) granules. We prospectively evaluated whether BCAA enriched nutrient switched from BCAA granules would increase the serum albumin level, and consequently extend the survival time after hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) treatment. Methods: This study included 77 patients treated for liver cirrhosis with HCC. After the nutritional assessment, all patients initiallydoi:10.1272/jnms.83.248 pmid:28133005 fatcat:kmtaq2lwbzhi5dfpfrqhv5mnyq
