DUBLIN, June 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) Forecast in 11 Major Markets 2017-2027" report to their offering.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the presence of hepatic steatosis in the absence of competing liver disease. It is a spectrum of liver disorders associated with steatosis, with no evidence of significant alcohol consumption. NAFLD develops in four main stages; Steatosis (simple fatty liver), Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), Fibrosis and Cirrhosis.
Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a more serious form of steatosis, due to the added inflammation. It is defined as the presence of hepatic steatosis and inflammation with hepatocyte injury (ballooning) with or without fibrosis. This can progress to cirrhosis, liver failure and, more rarely, hepatocellular carcinoma.
This report provides the current prevalent population for Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) across 11 Major Markets (USA, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Japan, Brazil, India and China) split by gender and 5-year age cohort.
