Dr. Nabil Noureddin (Medicine) published a paper, “Sex Differences in Age at Wait-List Registration for Liver Transplantation (LT) with Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) as Primary Indication,” in Clinical Transplantation journal. He is the co-first author on this project that showed there is a shift in which NASH is becoming the leading etiology for liver transplantation at younger ages. Additionally the authors found that women are being registered at a much younger age (late 50s) than men (late 60s). The authors believe it is plausible that NASH as an etiology for liver transplantation will continue to increase in younger ages with the sharp increase of obesity and diabetes in the United States. Noureddin is the chief resident at the department of internal medicine.
