Functional Assessment in Liver Transplantation Study
Established in 2012, the FrAILT Study is dedicated to understanding the lived experience of patients with cirrhosis, through detailed assessments of patients’ physical and cognitive functioning along their liver transplant journey (both before and after liver transplantation). Patients who are undergoing evaluation for or have undergone liver transplant at any one of the FrAILT Study sites in the U.S. may be eligible to enroll. This study has enrolled over 3,000 patients across 8 sites in the U.S..

This study has been funded continuously through research support from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the American College of Gastroenterology, the American Gastroenterological Association, the American Society of Transplantation, the American Federation of Aging Research (AFAR), The Mendez National Transplant Institute, and the UCSF Liver Center.
