Validation of new disease definition for patients with liver disease: FLASH study published in Lancet Gastroenterology & Hepatology
FLASH has recently had a study published in the fine journal Lancet Gastroenterology & Hepatology which tests the new disease definition for patients with fatty liver.
The Albumin study (ALB-TRIAL) is starting.
We are excited to announce that we are about to start a new research project. ALB-TRIAL is a new international study which is part of the MICROB-PREDICT EU Horizon2020 consortium. This study is a collaboration of 7 countries compassing 12 hospitals. The hospitals will participate in the study by recruiting patients from the respective countries and ensuring that the study includes a total of 240 patients with cirrhosis and ascites. The aim is to investigate whether a new biomarker can be used to predict which patients with cirrhosis and ascites, who will benefit most from regular human albumin infusions.
FLASH focuses on stigmatization.
13 participants have been part of our reading and writing workshops. They have read texts from well-known Danish authors and then written their own texts based on the day's topic. The result is 13 fine texts. The purpose was to have stories told by ordinary people at risk of liver disease.
