Some resources when this article becomes something more than a redirect:
- Glasgow discriminant.
- Maddrey's discriminant: DF = (patient's prothrombin time control) × 4.6 + (bilirubin (µmol/l)/17.1)). Anything over 32 is severe.
- Intensive management when severe
The Danish Cochrane group has again rubbished a treatment so commonly used in hepatology. This time it's steroids in alcholic hepatitis: http://www.blackwell-synergy.com/doi/abs/10.1111/j.1365-2036.2008.03685.x JFW | T@lk 10:59, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

- The French have evaluated acetylcysteine + steroids vs steroids alone. It works on short-term mortality, but the series was too small to show a definite mortality benefit (although it was p=0.07, so who knows). doi:10.1056/NEJMoa1101214 JFW | T@lk 22:53, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
- Liver transplantation is sometimes good as a rescue treatment, but there will be debate about suitability in people with a long history of alcoholicism. doi:10.1056/NEJMoa1105703. JFW | T@lk 22:54, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
