Programma

The hepatology group of Ghent University Hospital cordially invites
you to the Ghent Autoimmune Related Liver Disease Symposium. In our vibrant city, international and local experts will provide a state-of-the art lecture regarding the "hot topics" in autoimmune diseases of the liver.

Autoimmune diseases of the liver have gained a renewed interest
over the last years, mainly catalysed by the work of international
collaborative initiatives that have revealed the natural history of these diseases and developed prognostic scoring systems. On top of that, new molecules are emerging that could offer new treatment options to our patients. Despite these changes, care of these patients can be challenging.
