People with NAFLD may have decreased expression of a liver enzyme needed for medication processing

A team of researchers led by Nick Powell, PharmD, and Naga Chalasani, MD, published their findings in the article “Clinically important alterations in pharmacogene expression in histologically severe nonalcoholic fatty liver disease” in the journal Nature Communications in March.
