Brief Summary  

In India, ademetionine (Heptral) is approved for the management of intrahepatic cholestasis and liver diseases. While ademetionine (Heptral) has been available since the past few months in the Indian market, there is limited information on its effectiveness in Indian patients with ALD in terms of improvement in hepatic function profile as well as regarding its safety, tolerability and compliance amongst Indian patients. Also, no data currently exist that characterize patient population with chronic liver disease due to alcoholic liver disease to whom Heptral is prescribed in India and there is limited understanding of the physician’s decision making process at the start the of Heptral treatment. Hence this observational study was planned to include Indian patients with ALD who had been prescribed Heptral by their physicians, in accordance with dosing recommendations mentioned in Heptral package insert, with the objective to gain insight into effectiveness, safety-tolerability and compliance of the drug.

This is a non-interventional, prospective observational study in which Heptral is prescribed in the usual manner in accordance with the terms of the local marketing authorization with regards to dose, population and indication.
