I have cirrhosis and my sister died of it a year ago so this study is of interest to me personally. It is being done at UC San Diego, which is one of the premier research sites for liver disease, by Dr. Rohit Loomba. Google him if learning what an expert in liver disease looks like interests you.
I just returned from taking five members of my family to participate in the clinical research study. An unusual way to have a family reunion, but this kind of research is important to our learning just why some people get sick and others don't. Participating in clinical trials if you can is important to finding cures for all of us and I encourage you to consider them. Here is a link to information about the study.
