S2-E25.1 – Prevalence of NAFLD and NASH 2021 — Key Findings

Stephen Harrison, Naim Alkhouri and first-time guest Prof. Samer Gawrieh share key findings from their 2021 Journal of Hepatology paper titled "Prospective evaluation of the prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and steatohepatitis in a large middle-aged US cohort."

The 2021 Journal of Hepatology paper “Prospective evaluation of the prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and steatohepatitis in a large middle-aged US cohort” is the largest prospective study to estimate NAFLD and NASH prevalence in an asymptomatic population, with 664 patients evaluated. In this conversation, three of the paper’s co-authors discuss the reasons for conducting this study, the methodology they designed and some key results. They paint a stark picture of a disease with far greater frequency and severity than currently accepted data suggest.
