There are two annual meetings that concentrate on liver disease, which includes hepatitis C infection. The fall meeting takes place in the U.S., and the spring meeting occurs in Europe. The European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) hosts the spring meeting, called the International Liver Congress (ILC). Technically the meeting is ILC, but everyone calls it EASL. This was the 50th ILC and today's blog offers some highlights.
