Abstract

With highly effective cures for hepatitis C and rising rates of metabolic disease in the United States, the composition of the liver transplant candidate pool has been changing over the past decade. In their report, Noureddin et al., characterize the latest trends with a focus on gender and ethnic differences. Novel gender and ethnic trends were found including non-alcoholic steatohepatitis as the current leading indication for waitlist registration and liver transplantation in females.
