EASL Clinical Practice Guidelines


These guidelines reflect the state of knowledge, current at the time of publication, on effective and appropriate care, as well as clinical consensus judgments when knowledge is lacking. The inevitable changes in the state of scientific information and technology mandate that periodic review, updating, and revisions will be needed. These guidelines do not apply to all patients, and each must be adapted and tailored to each individual patient. Proper use, adaptation modifications or decisions to disregard these or other guidelines, in whole or in part, are entirely the responsibility of the clinician who uses the guidelines.
