AASLD Hepatitis C Practice Guidelines April 2009
The AASLD (American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases) just released updated Practice Guidelines on the Diagnosis, Management, and Treatment of Hepatitis C. They just came out this month in Hepatology, so make sure you take a look at them. Advances in medical technology are improving noninvasive liver tests of fibrosis and these tests may someday replace the needle biopsy. I did some biomedical research on biopsy needles during my days at MIT.
