The Linacre lecture was established by the Royal College of Physicians in 1990 and named after its first president, Dr Thomas Linacre (1460-1524). It was to be awarded competitively to fellows or members of the college under the age of 40.
Dr Lucy Turner will be delivering this year's Linacre lecture on Methotrexate: an innocent bystander in the develoment of liver fibrosis. Methotrexate-induced hepatotoxicity has been regarded with concern since the 1950's, however more recent evidence has contradicted this. This presentation reviews the results of a large cross-sectional study to investigate the liver function of patients taking methotrexate. The study was born from the hypothesis that low-dose methotrexate does not cause hepatotoxicity.
Chair: Dr Andrew Goddard, president, Royal College of Physicians
