Background/Aims We aimed to determine the association between urea level and incident cirrhosis, hepatic decompensation, and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in chronic liver disease (CLD) patients. Methods The association between blood urea level and liver fibrosis/liver-related events were evaluated on continuous scale with restricted cubic spline curves based on generalized additive model or Cox proportional hazards models. Then the above associations were evaluated by urea level within interva...

BACKGROUND & AIMS How adiposity influences the effect of genetic variants on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in the Asian population remains unclear. We aimed to study the association between genetic risk variants and susceptibility/severity of NAFLD in the lean, overweight and obese individuals. METHODS Nine hundred and four community subjects underwent proton-magnetic resonance spectroscopy and transient elastography examination. Lean (<23 kg/m2 ), overweight (23-24.9 kg/m2 ) and obe...

Metabolic (dysfunction)-associated fatty liver disease (MAFLD) is currently the most common chronic liver disease and affects at least a quarter of the global adult population. It has rapidly become one of the leading causes of hepatocellular carcinoma and cirrhosis in Western countries. In this review, we discuss the nomenclature and definition of MAFLD as well as its prevalence and incidence in different geographical regions. Although cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death i...
