Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in SCr value from baseline to end of treatment [ Time Frame: 16 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of adverse events and its severity [ Time Frame: Up to 84 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Laboratory test values [ Time Frame: Up to 84 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Vital signs [ Time Frame: 16 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • ECG [ Time Frame: Day 1,4,7,10,13,16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • The percentage of patients with Hepatorenal syndrome reversal (SCr value <=1.5 mg/dL) [ Time Frame: 16 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The percentage of patients showing 20% or more reduction in SCr value from the baseline [ Time Frame: 16 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • 24h Ccr, urine volume, urea nitrogen (BUN), urinary sodium excretions [ Time Frame: 16 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Mean arterial blood pressure, serum Na, serum K, plasma renin activity, aldosterone, norepinephrine, antidiuretic hormone (ADH), atrial natriuresis peptide (ANP) [ Time Frame: 16 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 84 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pharmacokinetics - assessment of blood concentration [ Time Frame: Blood PK sample collection: pre-dose, 5, 15, 30, 60, 90, 120, 150, 180, 240, and 360 minutes post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   20 Years to 79 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

- Patients who were diagnosed with HRS type 1 according to the diagnostic criteria of HRS and whose serum creatinine value (SCr) doubled at 2.5 mg/dL or greater within 2 weeks or whose 24h creatinine clearance (Ccr) decreased by half at less than 20 mL/min.

Patients should meet all the following 5 criteria:

[Modified International Ascites Club's Diagnostic criteria of HRS]

  1. Chronic or acute liver disease with advanced hepatic failure and portal hypertension.
  2. Low glomerular filtration rate (SCr >1.5 mg/dL or 24h Ccr <40 mL/min)
  3. Absence of shock, ongoing bacterial infection, current or recent (within 2 weeks) treatment with nephrotoxic drug
  4. No sustained improvement in renal function (decrease in SCr to 1.5 mg/dL or less or increase in 24h Ccr to 40 mL/min or more) following diuretic withdrawal and expansion of plasma volume with 1,500 mL/24h of isotonic saline for 24 to 48h.
  5. Protein urea <500 mg/dL, and no ultrasonographic evidence of obstructive uropathy or parenchymal renal disease

    • Age; 20 to 79 years

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Cr value ≥5 mg/dL
  • Child-Pugh Score ≥14
  • Fulminant hepatitis
  • Septic shock
  • Hepatocellular carcinoma that does not meet the Milan Criteria
  • Acute renal failure caused by contrast medium
  • Chronic renal failure
  • Bradycardia (heart rate <50/min)
  • Hyponatraemia (serum Na <120 mEq/L)
  • Ischemic heart diseases (angina pectoris, myocardial infarction), heart failure or clinically relevant arrhythmia
  • Poor-controlled hypertension
  • Arteriosclerosis obliterans or peripheral vascular disorder
  • Cerebrovascular disorder
  • Respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • Pregnant or possibly pregnant women and patients who or whose partner desire -pregnancy during the study period
  • Patients considered by the investigator or sub-investigator as unsuitable to participate in the study
