What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

1621. Steroid therapy in severe viral hepatitis. A double-blind, randomized trial of methyl-prednisolone versus placebo. (PubMed)

Steroid therapy in severe viral hepatitis. A double-blind, randomized trial of methyl-prednisolone versus placebo. The efficacy of corticosteroid therapy in severe viral hepatitis has never been demonstrated in a controlled clinical trial. For this reason, patients with severe viral hepatitis were randomly assigned to methyl-prednisolone or placebo treatment groups. The two groups were comparable in clinical findings, laboratory results and the presence of bridging necrosis on liver biopsy (...) . Seven of the 14 patients assigned to methyl-prednisolone and two of the 15 assigned to placebo died during the 16-week study period. Although the apparent excess mortality in the steroid-treated patients is not quite statistically significant (P = 0.08), the trend persists when only patients positive for hepatitis B surface antigen (P = 0.04) are analyzed separately. Methyl-prednisolone does not enhance survival in patients with severe viral hepatitis, and it may be detrimental.

1622. Efficacy of hepatitis B immune serum globulin after accidental exposure. Preliminary report of the Veterans Administration Cooperative Study. (PubMed)

Efficacy of hepatitis B immune serum globulin after accidental exposure. Preliminary report of the Veterans Administration Cooperative Study. A randomised, double-blind, controlled trial has been undertaken to compare the efficacy of hepatitis B immune globulin (H.B.I.G.) with that of immune serum globulin (I.S.G.) for the prophylaxis of viral hepatitis. Participants in the trial were individuals exposed accidentally to material infectious for hepatitis (primarily viral B hepatitis (...) ). Preliminary evaluation of the first 302 of the 561 individuals entered into the study indicates that H.B.I.G. significantly reduced the frequencies of both clinical and subclinical hepatitis during the first 3--4 months after the injection. Less than 10% of H.B.I.G. recipients had detectable anti-HBs at the sixth month after the injection, suggesting that H.B.I.G. might need to be given every 3--4 months to continually exposed individuals. Further long-term evaluation is required in order to define more

1623. Hepatitis B "immune" globulin: effectiveness in prevention of dialysis-associated hepatitis. (PubMed)

Hepatitis B "immune" globulin: effectiveness in prevention of dialysis-associated hepatitis. A randomized, double-blind, multicenter study of hepatitis prevention by immune serum globulin with high anti-HBs titer ("hepatitis B immune globulin") was carried out among 318 new patients and 296 staff members of renal dialysis units. Three milliliters of high titer globulin, repeated at four months, was compared with equal doses of intermediate or normal titer globulin. Among staff members (...) , the cumulative percentages developing hepatitis or HBs Ag, or both, within eight months were 6.9, 11.7, and 11.1 in the high, intermediate, and normal titer groups respectively. The lower incidence associated with high titer globulin was not significant (P greater than 0.05). However, among the patients the respective percentages were 7.9, 21.3, and 23.1 and the lower incidence in the high titer globulin group was significant.

1624. Hepatitis B immune globulin--prevention of hepatitis from accidental exposure among medical personnel. (PubMed)

Hepatitis B immune globulin--prevention of hepatitis from accidental exposure among medical personnel. The role of anti-HBs antibody in reducing the probability of hepatitis after accidental exposure to serum from patients with hepatitis or carriers of HBs Ag was studied prospectively among 712 medical workers. One fourth of the workers were anti-HBs positive and less than one per cent of them developed hepatitis, in contrast to 11 per cent among those who were anti-HBs negative. Three coded (...) immune-serum globulin preparations of varying anti-HBs titer were randomly assigned. Among 251 persons passively immunized with globulin having a conventionally low anti-HBs titer, hepatitis developed in 17 (seven per cent) within six months. Comparative rates among those receiving intermediately high titer and high titer globulin, respectively, were five per cent (11 of 208) and two per cent (5 of 253). The significantly lower incidence among the latter (P less than 0.05) was offset by six

1625. Hepatitis-B immunoglobulin in prevention of HBs antigenaemia in haemodialysis patients. (PubMed)

Hepatitis-B immunoglobulin in prevention of HBs antigenaemia in haemodialysis patients. In a double-blind study, hepatitis-B immunoglobulin significantly protected patients in a haemodialysis unit against the development of HBs antigenaemia, compared to control patients receiving normal human immunoglobulin (p less than 0-01). Injections were given at the beginning and after 6 months, and observations extended over 16 months. Analysis of antiHBc and anti-HBs antibodies suggested
