  • Jay Houston Hoofnagle is an American M.D. He is a leading expert in hepatotoxicity, hepatitis, cirrhosis and other diseases of the liver, and director of the Liver Disease Research Branch in the Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition at the National Institutes of Health. Hoofnagle performed the first clinical trial on interferon for chronic hepatitis B. While it was believed that hepatitis was untreatable in the 1980s, Hoofnagle's trials at the National Institutes of Health using interferon during that period resulted in the first cures of hepatitis C infected patients. His graduate work is notable for elucidating serologic response to hepatitis infection and is included in many textbook descriptions of hepatitis infection as a classic piece of virology. Hoofnagle is the author of over 500 peer reviewed articles on liver diseases, and his Scopus h-index as of August 2019 is 120. (en)
