MAFLD: A consensus-driven proposed nomenclature for metabolic associated fatty liver disease




Fatty liver associated with metabolic dysfunction is common, affects a quarter of the population, and has no approved drug therapy. While pharmacotherapies are in development, response rates appear modest. The heterogeneous pathogenesis of metabolic fatty liver diseases and inaccuracies in terminology and definitions necessitate a reappraisal of nomenclature to inform clinical trial design and drug development. A group of experts sought to integrate current understanding of patient heterogeneity captured under the acronym nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and provide suggestions on terminology that more accurately reflects pathogenesis and can help in patient stratification for management.
