The 60th Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases Boston, MA -- Hynes Convention Center October 31 -- November 3, 2009
Date:9/24/2009

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The Liver Meeting(R) is the premier meeting in the science and practice of hepatology, including the latest findings on new drugs, novel treatments, and the results from pilot and multicenter studies.

Approximately 10 percent of Americans have some form of liver disease, and the diseases strike disproportionately among certain populations but mostly regardless of lifestyle choices. There are now numerous treatments for both hepatitis B and C, and screening, treatment, and prevention of hepatitis remain important issues. Liver cancer is one of the few cancers growing in incidence, and the obesity epidemic has dire consequences for the nation's liver health and wellness.

The almost 2000 abstracts addressing these issues that will be presented are available to members of the press at our website (www.aasld.org), including 240 abstracts that will be presented in oral sessions.

Boston, MA - October 31 - November 3, 2009

  • Poster Presentations: October 31 - November 3
  • Oral Presentations: November 1 - 3

An AASLD President's press conference highlighting key abstracts and issues presented at the Liver Meeting(R) is scheduled for Saturday, October 31 at 4:00 pm.
