Fighting the rising liver illness epidemic
One-in-four adults has or will develop fatty liver disease. That’s 6 million Australians. So, chances are you know someone who has the condition.
If left untreated, fatty liver disease can lead to liver cancer, the fastest increasing cause of cancer death in Australia. For some, a liver transplant is the only treatment option. Of those who undergo a liver transplant, 10-13% will die within three years.
It’s a significant health issue, and one that our Liver Research Unit is committed to addressing. We’re producing results that can provide solutions for people who are suffering from an illness of the liver. Our innovative research could change lives. You can help progress this important work.
