44.3 – 2020 Year In Review: Revisiting the “MAFLD vs. NAFLD” debate

Louise Campbell questions the implication of APASL and ALEH endorsing "MAFLD" as Fatty Liver Disease nomenclature and Stephen Harrison discusses behind-the-scenes activities to resolve this issue


Louise Campbell “wonders” where increased support for adopting the term “MAFLD” (Metabolic-Associated Fatty Liver Disease) instead of NAFLD (Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease) “is going to take us in the next 12 months and how we are going to come to a resolution.” In response Stephen Harrison provides background on how the dispute started and discusses the current multi-regional efforts to create consensus around a nomenclature that describes the range of Fatty Liver Diseases accurately.
