Our Vision

DECISION strives to better understand the pathophysiology of decompensated cirrhosis leading to acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) at the systems level by taking advantage of already existing large and clinically well characterized patient cohorts. The ultimate goal is to significantly reduce mortality through combinatorial therapies that are tailored to the specific needs of individual patients. Part of this endeavour is to develop a reliable prognostic test and a robust response test.

Why it matters

In 2013, cirrhosis was responsible for 1.2 million deaths worldwide. While most cirrhosis patients initially do not show symptoms, acute decompensation of cirrhosis, defined as the body’s inability to cope with the progressing dysfunctionality of the liver, leads to drastic symptoms. Decompensation is characterized by the development of ascites, hepatic encephalopathy, jaundice, or gastrointestinal haemorrhage, and is often a turning point for cirrhosis.
