Hepatology

Liver disease is the fifth common cause of mortality and morbidity in the United Kingdom. The Hepatology Research Team at Bradford Royal Infirmary (BRI) directly contributes to Department of Health (DoH) Clinical Research Network sponsored research, developing evidence that helps towards the care of patients with chronic liver diseases within the Yorkshire and Humber region. We also work closely with industry to run early and late phase studies in Hepatology.

In addition, we are the chief investigator site for a new endoscopic medical device trial. We have also implemented new technology within the Hepatology unit. The Fibroscan machine is a non-invasive method to assess liver stiffness (correlated to fibrosis), which can be used to assist diagnosis and disease evaluation, in conjunction with existing methods. This technology aims to improve patient care and a attract cutting edge Hepatology research to the BRI. Furthermore, we have also been involved in the 'Love your Liver' campaign providing examinations locally. We are also active members of the Yorkshire and Humber Liver Network 

Led by Dr Sulleman Moreea, Consultant Hepatologist and Gastroenterologist, in the past two years we have developed into a dedicated research team as part of the Digestive Diseases Centre (DDC) at the BRI. The team currently consists of two consultants, one Clinical Fellow,  two full time Specialist Research Nurses and one administrative support assistant.
