Approximately 10 percent of Americans have some form of liver disease, but fortunately, the research community has made great strides in recent years in developing new treatments for patients.  

At this year's meeting, 2312 abstracts addressing these issues that will be presented, including 276 abstracts that will be presented in oral sessions. Those abstracts are available to members of the press at our website (www.aasld.org).

An AASLD President's press conference highlighting key abstracts and issues presented at the Liver Meeting® is scheduled for Saturday, November 5 at 4:00 pm.

Two of this year's programs deal directly with the direct-acting antiviral agents that were recently approved by the FDA.  

  • The Hepatitis C Symposium is designed to educate the provider on newly approved and anticipated therapies for HCV and how these should be integrated into clinical practice.
  • The Hepatitis Debrief is designed to rapidly synthesize and summarize the new data presented at the Liver Meeting® in such a way that the information will be meaningful and useful.
