    Collapse overview
    Dr. Gagan Sood's primary research focuses on clinical aspects of liver disease, viral hepatitis, portal hypertension and outcome based research in cirrhosis and liver transplantation. His area of main interest is non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD/ NASH). He is particularly interested in studying spectrum of NAFLD in different ethnic groups, with focus on genetic and metabolic differences in Hispanic population. Dr. Sood is also interested in iron overload in patient with liver disease including patients with NAFLD. Studies are currently being conducted on non-HFE related genetic markers in patients with primary and secondary iron overload. He is also involved in clinical trials of new anti viral therapies in patients with hepatitis C.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
