|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Total Parenteral Nutrition-induced Cholestasis Cholestasis Short Bowel Syndrome Gastroschisis Intestinal Atresia Infant, Premature, Diseases Cholestasis of Parenteral Nutrition||Drug: Omegaven||Phase 2 Phase 3|
Children up to 18 years of age, on parenteral nutrition, with a direct bilirubin level of 2 mg/dL or greater will be eligible to receive Omegaven at a maximum dose of 1 g/kg/day.
Up to 200 children will be eligible for enrollment.
Direct bilirubin levels and other labs will be monitored as well as growth parameters.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||63 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||Fish Oil Lipid Emulsion for the Treatment of Parenteral-Nutrition-Associated Liver Disease in Infants|
|Actual Study Start Date :||June 2015|

|Estimated Study Completion Date :||September 26, 2019|
Children will receive Omegaven at a maximum of 1 g/kg/day upon enrollment in this arm.
Once the direct bilirubin is 2 mg/dL or more x 2 weeks, Intralipid will be switched to Omegaven at 1 g/kg/day. The bilirubin level will be monitored to determine when resolution of cholestasis (DB <2 mg/dL) occurs.
- Resolution of cholestasis [ Time Frame: Within the first 3 months of sole Omegaven use ]To determine if Omegaven results in the resolution of cholestasis (DB <2 for 2 consecutive weeks)
- Safety issues [ Time Frame: Within the first year of use ]To determine if Omegaven results in safety issues such as increased bleeding, essential fatty acid deficiency, elevated triglyceride levels, elevated liver function tests, increased liver and/or intestinal transplant rates, or death
- Essential fatty acid deficiency [ Time Frame: Within the first month of use ]To determine if Omegaven can resolve essential fatty acid deficiency
