Overview of the day
On Day 2 of Digital ILC 2020, the Daily News brings you highlights from General Session II and EASL’s award ceremonies, the latest on drug development for the treatment of hepatitis B and D, an update on international progress toward hepatitis C elimination, recent findings from clinical trials in liver cancer and insights on antibiotic treatment strategies for patients with decompensated cirrhosis.
We are only a decade away from the WHO’s 2030 goal to eliminate viral hepatitis and it is important for us to take stock of the progress made to date and the work we have left to do. Today’s oral abstract session on hepatitis C elimination highlighted just a few of the many success stories from around the globe, demonstrating how far we have come towards achieving that goal.
Other highlights from today included the Meet the Expert sessions, which featured lively conversation and debate on the topics of acute liver failure and immunotherapy and liver cancer.
