New liver failure treatment could be here by 2020
14 December 2018
170,000 people in Europe die from liver failure every year. The cirrhosis death toll could be cut from 2020, thanks to advanced dialysis technology being trialled in the UK and Europe now.
Many people with liver disease do not see it coming until it’s too late.
Millions of people around the world are unaware they have liver disease, which may be nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) or even cirrhosis.
In the UK, 0.5% of the population have cirrhosis, the scarring of the liver that is the end-stage of liver disease, but 75% of them do not know,
says Rajiv Jalan, Professor of Hepatology at the Institute for Liver and Digestive Health, Division of Medicine, at University College London and Honorary Consultant at the Royal Free Hospital, London, UK.
