SMALL CHARITY, BIG ASPIRATIONS

Our Aim: To create a Bioartificial Liver and save millions of lives

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The aim of The Liver Group Charity is to improve the treatment of liver disease through research. The research and development involved in achieving this long term aim necessarily – and beneficially - includes the education and training of scientists and clinicians in the field, as well as the actual research both at the laboratory and the clinical interface. Recently this has meant a focus on the development of our Bioartificial Liver Machine - something that will prove as important to the treatment of liver disease as kidney dialysis was to those with kidney failure - which is funded by our ongoing 'Liver for Life' Appeal. We are striving so everyone has a 'Liver for Life'.

Our work so far
2011 saw the culmination of our testing in a large scale model of the bioartificial liver machine and IT WORKED! Those results have enabled us to take the steps to get phase 1 of the project ready to take to the clinically ready stage; from here we can obtain regulatory approval and subsequently be able to do first-in-man trials.
