    Angiotensin II in Liver Transplantation: a pilot randomized controlled trial
    UCSF Liver Center Pilot/Feasibility Grant for New Investigator NIH P30 DK026743Jun 1, 2021 - May 31, 2022
    Role: Principal Investigator
    Description: The goal of this single-center, randomized controlled, double-blind pilot trial is to assess the safety and efficacy of angiotensin II infusion versus placebo as a 2nd-line vasopressor for the treatment of hypotension during liver transplantation.

    Role: Principal Investigator (Mentor: Judith Hellman)
    Description: The goal of this translational study is to determine possible mechanisms by which liver ischemia-reperfusion injury activates the vascular endothelium and leads to end-organ injury during liver transplantation.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
