Topic: Organ Dysfunction in Metabolic-Associated Fatty Liver Disease: Effect of Cofactors
A Special Issue of Metabolism and Target Organ Damage
ISSN 2769-6375 (Online)
Submission deadline: 31 Dec 2023
Special Issue Introduction
NAFLD and NASH are pathogenically associated with gut dysbiosis, sarcopenia and expanded, dysfunctional adipose tissue. Clinically, extra-hepatic manifestations, notably either the full-blown metabolic syndrome or its individual components and cardio-nephro-vascular complications, are major features of MAFLD and dictate the disease course.
This thematic Special Issue highlights metabolic syndrome co-factors, including but not limited to alcohol, diet, immune surveillance, infection, genetics, epifactors and sedentary behavior, which affect liver disease progression and also induce dysfunction in other target organs and organ systems such as gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, adipose, muscle, kidneys and pancreas.
Original research, review articles, and short communications on the role of co-factors exacerbating organ dysfunction in MAFLD are welcome to this topical Special Issue.
