NAFLD represents a spectrum of liver disease, ranging from simple steatosis (fatty liver) through to advanced cirrhosis (scarring of liver tissue).
About NAFLD BioResource
We recruit participants who have been diagnosed with Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease. The diagnosis must be documented by a combination of Biochemistry, Imaging and/or Biopsy.
NAFLD represents a spectrum of liver disease, ranging from simple steatosis (fatty liver) through to advanced cirrhosis (scarring of liver tissue). Participants with any stage of NAFLD are eligible to take part
Our aim is to support research into the causes of NAFLD. This will help understand if there are any indicators or patterns that can be linked to severity of NAFLD or response to treatment. Then we can then begin to identify better treatments to reduce the harmful effects of NAFLD.
- Recruit 7,500 participants across the spectrum of NAFLD
- Open sites nationally to provide as many participants an opportunity to be involved in research regardless of where they live
- Support interesting stage 2 studies that will improve our understanding of NAFLD
