    incidence of elevated venous lactate levels more than 2 mmol/L of any etiology until development of lactic acidosis, orthotropic liver transplantation (OLT), death, or improvement of hepatic or renal function to MELD score less than 18 and and participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 weeks.


Secondary Outcome Measures:

    incidence of elevated venous lactate levels more than 2 mmol/L directly related to NRTI until development of lactic acidosis, OLT, death, or improvement of hepatic or renal function to MELD score less than 18 and and participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 weeks.

  • Incidence of elevated venous lactate levels more than 2 mmol/L caused by etiologies other than NTRIs [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    incidence of elevated venous lactate levels more than 2 mmol/L caused by etiologies other than NTRIs until development of lactic acidosis, OLT, death, or improvement of hepatic or renal function to MELD score less than 18 and and participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 weeks.

  • Frequency of concomitant prescribed medications possibly associated with lactic acidosis other than NTRIs [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

  • Arterial pH and anion gap in cases with elevated blood lactate levels (at the time of detection and peak levels [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Arterial pH and anion gap in cases with elevated blood lactate levels (at the time of detection and peak levels until development of lactic acidosis, OLT, death, or improvement of hepatic or renal function to MELD score less than 18 and and participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 weeks.

  • Overall OLT-free survival [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay or outpatients visit, an expected average of 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Overall OLT-free survival until development of OLT and death and participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay or outpatients visit, an expected average of 12 months
