WHY ATTEND? - Alcohol related liver disease remains the most important cause of liver disease morbidity and mortality in Europe and North America and is therefore relevant to all hepatologists.

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to the EASL-AASLD joint meeting on Alcohol related Liver Disease, in which we will address topics on public health, diagnostic definitions, therapeutic advances and clinical endpoints in alcohol related liver disease and alcoholic hepatitis.

Alcohol related liver disease (ALD) is the most prevalent cause of advanced liver disease and liver related mortality in Western countries.

Research in ALD spans a wide spectrum from public health to basic science and despite being the ‘Cinderella’ disease area in hepatology, there have been a number of advances in recent years. We would like to take this opportunity to review with you the emerging data from clinical, translational and basic science studies in ALD. Furthermore, as pharmaceutical company interest in ALD begins to evolve we would encourage you to participate in discussions around the endpoints in clinical trials.

This conference will be a unique occasion to interact with experts and top-researchers, to get new ideas but also to contribute in the field of therapeutic development in ALD and alcoholic hepatitis. We hope that we will be able to create an atmosphere of interactions above all the scientific content.

As organising committee, we welcome you to this EASL-AASLD joint meeting on "Definition, therapeutic advances and clinical endpoints in alcoholic liver disease and alcoholic hepatitis"
