September 28, 2017, London, UK- The ALIVER project today, was featured in the National Digestive Health Campaign launched by Media Planet. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness, provide insightful and informative content and break the stigma around digestive health issues in the UK. The campaign will focus on current research breakthroughs and developments in prevention, diagnosis and treatment solutions. It will also provide insight into future opportunities for innovation within these areas. The campaign will be targeted towards clinical commissioning groups, health care professionals, university students, patients and the general public. Project Coordinator, Dr. Rajiv Jalan was interviewed for the editorial titled: New dialysis technology could cut cirrhosis deaths, where he discussed the project, DIALIVE technology, and the impact liver dialysis could have on the global population.
The ALIVER Consortium has developed a novel and innovative liver dialysis machine that will help the liver to naturally regenerate or, where that does not prove possible, to keep patients alive and healthy until a donated liver becomes available. DIALIVE has been demonstrated to be effective in pre-clinical tests. Two universities, four hospitals, two foundations and four industrial partners including EASL, will work together to deliver DIALIVE.
