World Hepatitis Day 2023 ~ One life, one liver ~

In recognition of July 28th being World Hepatitis Day, we here at SMC thought it might be a good idea to help everyone around the globe have a deeper understanding of hepatitis, so please read on if you would like to learn more.


In 2010, the World Health Organization (WHO) designated July 28th as World Hepatitis Day with the aim of preventing the spread of viral hepatitis, eliminating discrimination and prejudice for those who are infected, and promoting the prevention of infection at a global level. In order to achieve this goal, WHO advocated for the implementation of educational activities related to hepatitis and other associated topics.


Although this World Hepatitis Day refers primarily to viral hepatitis, there are many other types of hepatitis, including non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and acute drug- or autoimmune-associated hepatitis. These hepatitis cases not only reduce the patient's QoL, but also eventually lead to liver dysfunction and liver cancer.


Your liver performs a very important function to keep you alive.

As a leading non-clinical CRO for liver diseases including NASH, we will contribute to drug development around the world to save many patients with liver diseases by agreeing with this year's theme, “ One life, one liver “.
