Autoimmune liver diseases (AILD) represent the greatest unmet need in modern hepatology, given their indeterminate aetiology, heterogeneous clinical presentations, and variable rates of clinical progression. AILD represent a leading indication for transplantation across the UK and Europe. Therapeutic options in autoimmune hepatitis whilst effective are imprecise and accompanied by a significant impact on patient quality of life.

Primary biliary cholangitis, the commonest of all three diseases, can be treated effectively with timely access to bile acid therapy; however, underdosing is common, and therapeutic shortfall evident in up to a third of patients. Primary sclerosing cholangitis is perhaps the greatest challenge in clinical practice, for which liver transplantation remains the only life-saving intervention.

This meeting presents a contemporary overview of evidence-based clinical practice and research activity in AILD. Each speaker is a key opinion leader in their field, with coverage of topics that encompass risk stratification, timing and choice of therapeutic strategies, clinical trial updates, and management considerations in special populations.

You will able to learn and discuss the following:

  1. Recognition of the diversity of AILD presentations, varied presenting phenotypes and responses to therapy
  2. Have the ability to stratify high versus low-risk sub-groups
  3. Apply timely, effective and holistic care delivery for all patients with AILD
