The Pediatric Acute Liver Failure (PALF) Study is a multicenter, multinational collaborative study aimed at identifying, characterizing and developing management strategies for infants, children and adolescents who present with acute liver failure.
Because ALF is such a rare disease, a collaborative network was established that collects information and blood samples to help advance our understanding of this rare and serious problem. The Pediatric Acute Liver Failure Study Group consists of 19 pediatric centers, with headquarters at the University of Pittsburgh.
CHOP’s Biesecker Pediatric Liver Center is an active participant in this research.
