World Hepatitis Day 2016 - Harm reduction is possible!

World Hepatitis Day 2016 - Harm reduction is possible!
A:

World Hepatitis Day 2016 is just around the corner (on July 28), aiming to boost global awareness on hepatitis, this year’s campaign is “Elimination” which can be achieved through universal vaccination, enhanced blood and injection safety, as well as harm reduction and treatment [1].

 

Controlling or eliminating the hepatitis virus has always been regarded as the only way to treat hepatitis. When patients are diagnosed with hepatitis, antiviral treatment is the only option. However, drugs are not able to repair damaged liver cells or normalize liver function. This results in a lack of focus on harm reduction and recovery during the process. In fact, how to effectively reduce injury is essential to preventing the situation from worsening, as only stopping inflammation can reduce the chance of developing other serious liver diseases.

 

Therefore, among the promotional contents of WHD 2016, “harm reduction” should be the primary concern. So what can patients do to reduce injury in everyday life?

 

To reduce injury, patients should first tackle the problem with utmost urgency, which is to stop inflammation in the liver and maintain normal ALT. When inflammation stops, it implies that the liver cells are no longer injured, and damage to the liver can be greatly reduced. [2][3] Therefore, patients should focus on how to stop inflammation early in order to reduce injury.

 

One treatment option that matches this concept is ‘ALT Focused Therapy’. This approach focuses on reducing patients’ injury, overcoming the limitations and shortcomings of the current treatment. ‘ALT Focused Therapy’ can help patients significantly reduce the time with liver injury through rapid recovery of liver cells and opposing inflammation.

NASH (Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis) is closely linked with NAFLD (Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease). Both of these liver diseases are common, and are often known as silent liver killers. NASH resembles alcoholic liver disease, but occurs in people who drink little or no alcohol at all. The major characteristic of NASH is fat in the liver, along with inflammation and damage. NASH can be severe and can lead to cirrhosis. The number of NASH cirrhosis patients is currently on the rise, and it is

NASH is inflammation in the liver developed from accumulated fat in the organ, also known as fatty liver. NASH damages liver cells and liver function, which results in elevated ALT liver enzyme level.    As there are no approved treatments for NASH, the standard recommendation for patients is to lose weight only. However this doesn’t work for everyone so if you are struggling to find a way to stop NASH, please read on.   Wha

There are between 10 to 15 million patients in the U.S. with NASH, and among these patients, one-fifth to one-fourth are at risk for cirrhosis or chronic liver damage.   The major characteristic of NASH is fat in the liver, along with inflammation and damage. NASH can be severe and can lead to cirrhosis. The number of NASH cirrhosis patients is currently on the rise, and it is predicted (NAFLD & NASH) to be the number 1 cause of liver transplants by 2020.
