M. Castellana et al. (National Institute of Gastroenterology "Saverio de Bellis," Research Hospital, Italy) conducted a meta-analysis to assess the performance of the FIB-4 and NFS scores, the 2 most common non-invasive tools, for the appropriate selection of subjects with AF for biopsy. A total of 18 studies evaluating 12,604 subjects were included...
This retrospective cross-sectional study was conducted among patients recruited from a large, community-based hospital system's outpatient liver clinic from 2001 to 202 in order to determine the performance of the enhanced liver fibrosis (ELF) test as a non-invasive test for assessment of liver fibrosis among patients with NAFLD...
MAFLD is closely related to disturbances in systemic energy metabolism, including insulin resistance and atherogenic dyslipidaemia. This review by J. Heeren and L Scheja (University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Germany) discusses recent research addressing lipoprotein metabolism in the context of MAFLD...
Identifying patients with high-risk-NASH who are candidates for pharmacologic therapy remains a challenge. K. Sugimoto et al. (Tokyo Medical University, Japan) aimed to develop a score to identify patients with a NAFLD activity score of 4 or greater and clinically significant fibrosis...
Current surveillance strategy for patients with NAFLD at risk of HCC development is unsatisfactory. G. P. Caviglia et al. (National University Health System, and Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore) aimed to investigate the diagnostic accuracy of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), protein induced by vitamin K...
Much of the current data on NAFLD are derived from biopsy-based studies that may introduce ascertainment and selection bias. Selection of patients for liver biopsy has implications for clinical practice and the reported epidemiology of NAFLD. The aim of this study was to determine patient factors predictive....
ndividuals with schizophrenia have high levels of medical comorbidity and cardiovascular risk factors. Patients with schizophrenia should receive regular monitoring and adequate treatment of cardio-metabolic risk factors. Nevertheless, little is known regarding NAFLD in patients with schizophrenia. A. Koreki et al. analysed the medical...

Multiparametric MRI is a promising technique to assess hepatic steatosis, inflammation, and fibrosis, potentially enabling non-invasive identification of individuals with active and advanced stages of NAFLD. The aim of the current proof-of-principle study by M. A. Troelstra et al. (Amsterdam University Medical Centres, The ...
he field of NAFLD and its progressive form, NASH, has, despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, continued to rapidly evolve in 2020. There have been substantial advances in NAFLD mechanisms, diagnostics, and treatment. Key developments include the identification of a multiparametric cellular and tissue signature to define disease progression...
The authors hypothesized that screening for NAFLD in type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients, starting with ultrasound (US) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) or aspartate aminotransferase (AST), followed with non-invasive testing for fibrosis to detect those most likely to have fibrosis stage ≥F2, is more cost effective than not screening this population...
