This study aims at analyzing the combined effect of Synbiotic and L-ornithine L-aspartate (LOLA) in improving brain function among patients admitted with covert hepatic encephalopathy. Methods: 40 cirrhotic patients with impaired psychometric performance were enrolled and randomized into control and study group receiving standard therapy and study drugs along with standard therapy respectively.
