Linacre lecture 2021: methotrexate  an innocent bystander in the development of liver fibrosis

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.
