Liver failure or hepatic insufficiency is the inability of the liver to perform its normal synthetic and metabolic function as part of normal physiology. Two forms are recognised, acute and chronic. 3rd World Congress on Hepatitis and Liver Diseases consist of following tracks Hepatitis : Care and Cure, HBV : From Discovery to Cure, Latest advances in the treatment of HCV, Hepatitis Vaccination, Advance Technologies for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Liver Diseases

Scope and Importance:
When the liver is damaged, whether it's from a virus, harmful chemicals, or some other cause, it will eventually lose its ability to function. This is called liver failure, and it is a life-threatening condition. There are two types of liver failure--chronic and acute. Chronic liver failure is usually the result of cirrhosis, and it happens slowly over the course of months or years. Acute liver failure happens suddenly and is usually caused by poisoning or an overdose. The first symptoms of liver failure are often nausea, loss of appetite, fatigue, and diarrhea. Because these symptoms can have any number of causes, it may be hard to tell that the liver is failing. But as liver failure progresses, the symptoms become more serious. The patient may become confused and disoriented, and extremely sleepy. There is a risk of coma and death. Immediate treatment is needed. The medical team will try to save whatever part of the liver that still works. If this is not possible, the only option may be a liver transplant.
The liver is a large, meaty organ that sits on the right side of the belly. Weighing about 3 pounds, the liver is reddish-brown in colour and feels rubbery to the touch. Normally you can't feel the liver, because it's protected by the rib cage. The liver's main job is to filter the blood coming from the digestive tract, before passing it to the rest of the body. The liver also detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs. As it does so, the liver secretes bile that ends up back in the intestines. The liver also makes proteins important for blood clotting and other functions. Liver conditions include Hepatitis, Cirrhosis, Liver cancer and Liver failure, Ascites, Gallstones and Hemochromatosis.
In 2009, the global market for drugs used to treat liver disease was worth approximately $12.4 billion. Sales in 2010 decreased and the market did not see much progress, causing overall global sales to remain stagnant at $12.4 billion. The market is expected to rise at a CAGR of 3.3% and reach nearly $14.2 billion by 2016. The global liver disease therapeutics market totalled nearly $24.5 billion in 2014 and is projected to approach $33.8 billion by 2019, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.7% through 2019.
