NAFLD is probably the most common liver disorder in the world with a prevalence rate ranging from 6% to 35% of the general population, and a median rate of 20%. There is strong evidence that the occurrence of NAFLD is likely to correspond to regional trends in over nutrition, obesity, type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome.The disorder equally affects both sexes. Although, it is most common in overweight and obese persons and in patients with adult onset (type 2) diabetes, it can also be present in lean persons and in overweight children and adolescents.
NAFLD represents a spectrum of hepatic disorders characterized by macrovesicular fatty liver, with histology ranging from steatosis to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), to NAFLD-associated cirrhosis and to hepatic cancer. It is the risk of progression from fatty liver as a benign disorder to liver disease with inflammation, fibrogenesis and cell death that makes NAFLD a medical challenge, as an established therapy is not yet available.A decade of clinical trials did not reveal a single intervention that has convincingly improved all important outcomes for all NAFLD patients. Low-calorie diet and physical exercise are accepted as a basic universal approach, but considering the rate at which NAFLD is becoming a worldwide epidemic, new therapeutic concepts are needed.

Defining Health in the Era of Value-Based Care publishing competition.
Modern medicine is actively transitioning from "fighting disease" to promoting health. However, the medical community has yet to arrive at a universally accepted definition of "health." Without such, the path to health preservation, protection and rejuvenation remains unclear.
Supporting the emergence of integrated medicine and less expensive, value-based systems, we invite review articles that define "health" in a manner that helps to develop a healthier society and provide actionable guidelines for practicing physicians and public health workers. Cureus has assembled a very high profile team for peer review including
Dr. John Ioannidis, Professor of Health Policy with Stanford Medicine,
Dr. Victoria Maizes, Executive Director at the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine,
Dr. George Lundberg, former 17 year editor with JAMA,
Dr. Josephine Briggs, Director with the NIH / NCCIH,
Dr. Stephen Klasko, President and CEO with Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health,
Dr. Donald Abrams, Medical Oncologist with UCSF, and others.
As an incentive for submissions, we are offering $18,000 in awards for the authors that produce what the peer review panel and clinical community determines to be the most novel and impactful articles.
The winner of this competition will be selected by general acclaim of the medical community using Cureus SIQ crowdsourcing technology, and subject to the final approval of the committee selected by the College. To further encourage knowledge sharing across medical specialties, all articles published as part of this competition will be indexed in PubMed Central and distributed to large communities of relevant clinicians through the Cureus platform.
