RESEARCH INTERESTS
The main causes of liver disease in industrialized countries include alcoholic steatohepatitis (ASH), chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). In patients who chronically consume alcohol or are morbidly obese, the progression of liver disease is similar, originating with development of a fatty liver (hepatic steatosis) and then progresses to hepatitis, fibrosis and finally cirrhosis. However, of those patients that develop hepatitis, only a small subset will progress further to cirrhosis. Approximately 20-50% of patients with ASH and ~20% of patients with NASH will progress to cirrhosis suggesting a gene-environment interaction contributes to disease progression.
