Recent Liver Research
The research aims to provide the most complete and reliable source of information on current developments in the field. The liver supports almost every organ in the body. Liver is prone to several diseases due to its strategic location and multidimensional functions. The liver is the largest glandular organ in the body and performs many vital functions to keep the body pure of toxins and harmful substances. Without a healthy liver, a person cannot survive. An average adult liver weighs about three pounds. Located in the upper-right portion of the abdominal cavity under the diaphragm, the liver consists of four lobes. The liver is considered a gland-an organ that secretes chemicals because it produces bile, a substance needed to digest fats. Bile’s salts break up fat into smaller pieces so it can be absorbed more easily in the small intestine. Journal of liver: disease & transplantation (JLDT) is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal and aims to publish the most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in all areas of liver studies making them available online to researchers worldwide. The Journal of Liver: Disease & Transplantation addresses both the liver pathology and liver transplantation. JLDT stands among the liver journals in the globe. The major areas of journal include advances in liver diseases, liver trauma, portal hypertension and pediatric liver tumors. Journal of Liver: Disease & Transplantation focuses on the topics hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver cancer, alcohol damage, fatty liver, metabolic and genetic liver diseases, autoimmune liver diseases, liver transplantation and techniques, surgical complications and transplantation outcomes. The Journal is using quality and standard peer review process for its paper publications. It is also using online manuscript submission and manuscript tracking systems.
