The Liver Cirrhosis Network (LCN) brings together 10 leading institutions with expertise in caring for patients with cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is common cause of death and disability in the U.S.
The LCN was formed for two reasons. First, we hope to discover why and how patients with cirrhosis get sick with complications of cirrhosis. Second, we will launch a trial to see if a statin improves the health of patients with cirrhosis.
