As NASH frequently causes liver cirrhosis, the nutritional aspects of its treatment are discussed. Other areas covered include nonalcoholic fatty liver, the role of leptin in the pathogenesis of NASH, restricted diets and exercise therapy, mammalian targets of the peptide rapamycin, and genetic factors influencing the developments of NASH. This book is intended to be of particular relevance to researchers and those practicing in the field."--Jacket
