Three UNC researchers are co-authors of a new international study, published online August 28 in The Lancet Gastroenterology & Hepatology, that found patients with a liver transplant who are infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, do not face an increased risk of death compared to other patients who were infected with SARS-CoV-2.

The authors include Sidney Barritt IV, MD, associate professor of medicine in the division of gastroenterology and hepatology, Andrew M. Moon, MD, a fellow in the division of gastroenterology, and Erica Brenner, MD, a third year fellow in pediatric gastroenterology.
