Brief Summary:

Background: Acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) is a syndrome characterized by acute deterioration in the setting of chronic liver disease associated with high short-term mortality. Currently, there is no specific treatment for patients with ACLF. Our previous results showed that Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) could reduce the mortality rate and the incidence of complications of ACLF effectively. In this study, we aim to conduct the multi-center randomized controlled trial to evaluate the effect of unified CHM formulas and provide propagable and high-level evidence for clinical practice.

Methods/design: This is a prospective, multicenter, centrally randomized controlled trial. Five hundred and ten patients diagnosed with HBV-related ACLF will be allocated in a 1:1 ratio to SMT group (standard medical therapy) and CHM group (CHM and SMT). The primary outcome is the transplant-free mortality rates at week 4, 8, 12, 24 and 48. Secondary outcomes include (1) the incidence of adverse reactions, (2) influence on liver function, (3) the incidence of serious complications and (4) the level of inflammatory cytokines.

Discussion: The effectiveness and safety of CHM formulas are assessed in the treatment of ACLF.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Chinese herbal medicine
One dosage of Chinese herbal medicine by oral administration per day for 8 weeks. For patients who cannot take oral medicine can be switched to colon route by the colonic therapy system(IMS-100A produced by Sunny Medical in Beijing China).
Drug: Chinese herbal medicine
One dosage of CHM includes Artemisiacapillaris Thunb (30g), Salvia miltiorrhiza Bge (30g), Rhizoma Atractylodis Macroce- phalae (30g), Rubia cordifolia L (30g), Sieyesbeckiaorientalis L (30g). Paeoniae Radix Rubra (60g), Gardenia jasminoides Ellis (9g), Hedyotis diffusa Willd (30g) and Bletilla striata (15g) are involved for excess syndrome, and Astragalus membranaceus (30g), Radix Pseudostellariae (15g), Radix Aconiti Lateralis Praeparata (10g), Galli Gigeriae Endothelium Corneum (20g), Polygonum cuspidatum Sieb.et Zucc (15g) are involved for deficiency syndrome.
Other Name: CHM+SMT therapy

Other: Control (blank)
SMT therapy includes a high-calorie diet; nucleoside analogues for HBV DNA-positive patients; sodium restriction, diuretics and paracentesis combined with albumin infusion for ascites; lactulose and L-ornithine aspartate and lactulose for HE and hyper-ammonia; hemostatic treatment for gastrointestinal hemorrhage; antibiotics for infections and renal replacement for HRS and uremic symptoms.
Other Name: SMT therapy

Control (blank)
Patients in the control group only receive the standard medical treatment (SMT), no control drug with CHM.
Other: Control (blank)
SMT therapy includes a high-calorie diet; nucleoside analogues for HBV DNA-positive patients; sodium restriction, diuretics and paracentesis combined with albumin infusion for ascites; lactulose and L-ornithine aspartate and lactulose for HE and hyper-ammonia; hemostatic treatment for gastrointestinal hemorrhage; antibiotics for infections and renal replacement for HRS and uremic symptoms.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. transplant free survival [ Time Frame: week 12 ]
    transplant free survival at the time point of week 12


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. transplant free survival [ Time Frame: week 24 ]
    transplant free survival at the time point of week 24

  2. liver function assessed by MELD score [ Time Frame: week 12 ]
    compare the MELD score between the two arms. MELD is the abbreviation of model for end-stage liver disease involving serum bilirubin, creatinine, international normalized ratio (INR) and sodium.

  3. liver function assessed by Child-Pugh score [ Time Frame: week 12 ]
    compare the Child-Pugh score between the two arms. Child-Pugh score is the panel involving the serum bilirubin, coagulation function, albumin and the complication of hepatic encephalopathy and ascites.

  4. Quality of life assessed by WHOQOL-BRIEF [ Time Frame: week 12 ]
    compare the life quality based on WHOQOL-BRIEF between the two arms

  5. incidence of complications [ Time Frame: from week 1 to week 12 ]
    incidence of liver related complications of the two arms including infections, encephalopathy, hepatorenal syndrome (HRS), and gastrointestinal bleeding.
