26 March, Ditlev Nytoft Rasmussen will defend his PhD on prognostic markers in alcohol-related liver disease.

By Stine Johansen, , 3/16/2021

In his PhD-thesis, Ditlev Nytoft Rasmussen has compared liver biopsy and non-invasivemarkers, like FibroScan, ELF-test and blood-based markers, with respect to their abilityto predict the prognosis of alcohol-related liver disease. He has described the natural history of liver disease in a cohort of asymptomatic alcohol-overusing patients and used registry data to describe the past health trajectory of patients with alcohol-related liver disease. Ditlev's research is part of the GALAXY project.

The defence will be held online via Zoom on Friday March 26th 1:00-3:00 PM. The defence is open for everybody.
