Alcoholic Hepatitis: Advances in Therapeutic Management

Program Overview
Because alcohol potentiates the fibrosis- and cancer-inducing actions of the hepatitis virus, people with heavy alcohol intake are particularly vulnerable to hepatitis infection and are most in need of treatment. In this activity, we will discuss advances in acute and long-term management of alcoholic hepatitis and liver function. Specifically, we will aim to review guideline-based screening and diagnostic considerations for alcoholic hepatitis; assess standards of care for management of acute alcoholic hepatitis, including lifestyle-, pharmacologic-, and device-related methods; and evaluate investigational methods of treatment with respect to efficacy, safety, and long-term management.
